A modern French property on the edge of the village of Puivert and only 200 mts away from the Swimming Lake with its own dedicated guest garden and set in 2000 sq mts of grounds. The property has all the facilities that you would expect in any modern accommodation, but still quite traditional. Enjoy the views of the fields and mountains from the bedrooms and guest garden. The orchard can be enjoyed but is shared with the owners. Take breakfast on the balcony and enjoy the views be it the fields and mountains or that of Puivert Chateau. Walking, cycling, horse riding, white water rafting together with other river activities and of course lying on the beach or swimming in the Lake are some of the activities that you can enjoy.

About Terence Ireland
A property in France had been a dream of ours for many years, having had many excellent holidays in the area staying at our friends house. We were excited when Champs et Montagne came available and we both agreed that this was for us and we were thrilled to buy Champs et Montagne in 2006. We both love the area and enjoy the sunshine, the peace and tranquillity that it offers us.
Terence Ireland purchased this House in 2006
Why Terence Ireland chose Puivert
We chose the Aude region to buy our property as it boasts a high number of days of sunshine per year, yet is very accessible via all the local airports and Autoroutes. The views are to believed, but still has all the local amenities. So much do we like the area, that in 2009 we made it our permanent home.
What makes this House unique
Whilst at the property, we enjoy cooking that Bar-b que and eating outside as much as possible, relaxing in the garden in the evening, visiting the nearby lake beach at Puivert just 200 mts or two minutes away, eating out at local restaurants. Visiting the local Markets, be it Esperaza on a Sunday, Quillan on a Wednesday and Saturday or Mirepoix on a Monday.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Clean Spacious Very Well Equipped House in an amazing location
We really enjoyed our stay in Puivert, the owner, Susan was very welcoming and helpful during our short stay. The house is in a nice quiet village very close to the lake which is a nice place to swim and relax. The house is equipped with everything you could need and has a traditional French feel about it. The garden is lovely withe fantastic views. The only thing we would have liked was to have been offered the option to pay for cleaning of the house as we were required to clean ourselves on departure, which we didn't mind doing, however, we would have rather paid which would have given us a bit more time, overall a wonderful place, would definitely recommend staying here!
