A stunning 120 year old stone farm house lovingly restored in a French style (stone walls and oak beams etc) but with modern, open and comfortable living space (over 2,700 square feet).
There are 4 large double rooms (all with views) and one super large room with 4 single beds (we also have a camp bed and 2 cots available) and 3 large family bathrooms.
It is located in Domaine de Pradines (nr Saint Andre de Roquelongue) - a charming hamlet; a cluster of 3 former wine buildings around a small chateau in the heart of the (protected) Parc Naturel Regional de Narbonaise. It is in a lovely peaceful location but it it not remote and is close to towns, shops and restaurants.
The house sits on the side of a valley, surrounded by vineyards and with stunning views over the Corbierre Hills.
The large outside private pool (which can be heated on request) and garden is perfect for sunbathing / BBQ/ kids play area. The house is also well equipped for family entertainment with (free) Wi-Fi, TV, a table tennis table, mountain bikes, swing, table football, magnetic darts board and many other games. Guests may also use the telephone which is free for all land-line calls in Europe.
The feature most remarked upon by our guests, is the terrace balcony outside the kitchen which is the perfect spot to eat 'Al Fresco' and admire the views over the hills, vineyards and pool terrace.
We fell in love with the house when we first saw it in 2010, and had to make an offer on it straight away! It feels peaceful, with only the sounds of the wildlife (mostly cicadas, birds and toads) to be heard and yet it is at the centre of all the good things to do in the Languedoc as well as being only a short cycle-ride away to pick-up your baguettes in the near-by shops.
We bought and refurbished it for ourselves and later decided to rent it out for others to enjoy. That means that you feel that you are staying in in a home rather than a bland holiday rental.
The area is in a great location, central for all the activities (beach, Carcassonne, Canal du Midi, Beziers and Narbonne) and other main towns but with a quiet country feeling.
