Converted Wine Domaine in the Languedoc, South of France sleeps 24
This Languedoc property was a Southern France working wine 'domaine' until recently when the owners renovated the buildings and built a large swimming pool. The property is set in 12 hectares of olive groves and fields.
This holiday accommodation is in 3 apartments as detailed below and sleeps at total of 24 people.The two largest apartments, HE015A Sauvignon and HE015B Chardonnay, are in a late 19th century villa, 40m from the swimming pool. Each has its own separate entrance and private terrace.The third smaller cottage, HE015C Cabernet, again with its own private entrance, garden and terrace, is part of another building about 50m away.
The apartments are ideal for a large family holiday in the South of France where families can also have their own independence, and meet up together by the swimming pool!
For maximum 36 people two other cottages can be added - HE015D Merlot and Syrah ( payable)
There is a newly converted 'cave' at the domaine, providing a function room to seat approx 40, with kitchen and cloakroom, so perfect for a small South of France wedding. Please contact us for rental details.

These three South of France apartments share the 12m x 6m swimming pool, with inset steps.

Outside the fenced area is a large terrace with plenty of sun-beds for everyone ot enjoy the South of France sun. The hillside has been cut away so that a Greek-amphitheatre of large stone steps surrounds one end of the terrace,
Between the pool and the holiday houses is a sloping lawn, while beyond the pool area is a large olive grove of about a hectare, and open fields. All in all there are 5 hectares of grounds, so plenty of space for kids to roam on 'adventures', ride bikes and so on.
