Description

La Maison Verte is a two-story village house facing South with a lovely long view over the village gardens towards the vineyards and the Corbieres Mountains
The house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, one en-suite; a generous, well-stocked kitchen, two sitting rooms with comfortable sofas and chairs and a dining room which seats eight. It also has electric heating, fireplaces and a wood burning stove
French doors from the sittingroom lead onto the terrace which has a view over the garden; a heavenly place for glasses of cold wine and to watch the swallows wheeling amongst the ancient walls of the houses. The private, stone walled garden has a table and chairs under a vine-covered pergola and cheerful deck chairs. The house is situated in rue des Lavandieres, The Street Of The Washerwomen, a little lane where few cars ever pass
La Maison Verte has been restored to a very high standard, with fabrics, furnishings an paintings from the region; flat-screen TV; DVD player and free Wi-Fi, as well as a good library and a music system
Caunes-Minervois is in the Languedoc region of Southern France, some 20 minutes from Carcassonne, at the foot of the Black Mountains, mid-way between Toulouse ( 90 minutes) and Montpellier. It is about one hour from the Mediterranean, and three hours from Barcelona
Caunes is in the centre of the historic Cathar region. There are are mountains and markets, ancient, hill top villages, castles and small towns. There is wonderful cycling (we have 4 bikes you can use), walking from right outside your house and into the hills and vineyards. Two World Heritage sites are within twenty minutes of the village; La Cite, an amazing castle in Carcassonne, and the wonderful, winding Canal du Midi. There is a superb golf course twenty minutes away. There are dozens and dozens of winemakers in the area. There are olive orchards and cheese makers. Fresh food from the markets is to die for
Fly into Toulouse and hire a car from there. Or fly into Carcassonne. Trains to either Narbonne or Carcassonne
