Property Summary

A unique vacation rental in the South of France to sleep 8, with heated pool air-conditioning and walking distance to village

10 day holidays available, and flexible arrival outside July and August.

La Grange du Tour has been renovated with a creative eye, resulting in a stylish conversion. It comprises a large open plan living area, 4 bedrooms, a TV room with a sofa bed (so an extra 2 people can be accommodated) and a lovely courtyard with a heated pool and summer kitchen. 

The property sits in a pretty Occitanie village with a boulangerie, tabac, general store, bar and a couple of restaurants. There are several wineries of note - the village is in the Minervois Appellation.

The Mediterranean coast and South of France beaches are around 35km from the house.

A great location for your South of France family holiday.

The first writings on this pretty village in the Minervois date back to 955 AD. In 1217 it became a Roman Fortress or Castrum and in the 17th century, the village grew, with its church becoming larger. This being a time of great innovation, the Canal du Midi was under construction and the the notable port at Le Somail (3km from the property) was born. 

The local Chateau at Ginestas Château du Puits es Pratx, is often used for weddings and also has a restaurant.

Today Le Somail is well worth a visit, very pretty with canal side restaurants - walkable - 20 minutes through the vineyards or 5 minutes' drive

We've been meaning to drop you a line about the holiday. It was absolutely perfect in every way. The house was beautiful and so relaxing, it had everything that we needed and more! The village was charming and friendly and the surrounding area was lovely. Hopefully we can return there one day.  Thanks for returning the deposit, which I can confirm has been safely received. Once again thanks for enabling us to have such a memorable family holiday. Mr  L, South France Villas Client September 2019
A great break in a lovely villa. Great property with a well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and plenty of space to spread out, inside and outside. Special thanks to Jess for her helping out with printing out our problem boarding pass! August 2018
