Holiday Cottage in the Languedoc, South of France sleeps 6.
Availability 2018: 2 to 7 July, 4 to 11 August, from 28 August onwards.
This Languedoc property was a working wine 'domaine' until the owners renovated the buildings and built a splendid swimming pool. The property is set in 12 hectares of olive groves and fields. 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, 'Cabernet', again with its own private entrance, garden, and terrace, is part of another building about 50m away.
The large 12m x 6m swimming pool has an automatic cleaning system and a large terrace with plenty of sun-loungers.
There is a newly converted 'cave' at the domaine, providing a function room to seat approx 40, with kitchen and cloakroom. Please contact us for rental details.
"Cabernet" - Rated 5 stars by the local tourist board - An independent cottage which is part of another building.
All on ground floor
Open-plan living/dining room, well-equipped kitchen which leads out to a private south-facing terrace (20m2) and fenced garden (300m2 rough grass with olive trees). The terrace has a teak table for 6 people for dining alfresco. One bedroom with 2 single beds and en suite bathroom (shower, washbasin no wc). Independent wc.
One double bedroom with ensuite shower room (shower and sink, no wc), and another bedroom with a set of bunk beds. There is an independent bathroom with bath, wc and wash basin next to this bedroom.
All three apartments share the fenced 12m x 6m swimming pool, with broad inset steps. (The pool has a high-tech cleaning system which means that you should not need to be disturbed by visits from the 'pool-man' so often). The paved terrace around the pool is fenced for child safety. Outside the fenced area is a large gravelled terrace with 6 sun-beds. 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 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.
Cabernet has its own smaller parking area in its garden.
