Property Summary

South of France holiday rental, Provencal Style Farmhouse with fenced pool next to the River in Roquebrun, Languedoc sleeps 8 to 10. 

 

Situated in the picturesque village of Roquebrun, within the beautiful Parc Naturel Régional du Haut Languedoc, this spacious 5 bedroom, 5 ensuite bathroom holiday property offers the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday in this charming region of Languedoc in Southern France. 

The village of Roquebrun is set against the stunning back drop of mountains with the river Orb running close to its edge. The characterful old houses of the village seem to tumble down towards the river, and the whole place is surrounded by vineyards. The 10th century Cathar tower, recently restored, stands like a sentinel above the village.
The setting is wonderful, and you can literally spend your holiday in the South of France here without going too far, sunbathe on the river beach, visit the local vineyards, eat in the very good local restaurants (all within a short walking distance), canoeing/kayaking, and walking. This is one of the most perfect locations for a family holiday, and for children of all ages.

The holiday house, which was once a wine store belonging to one of the main wine estates of the village, has been refurbished into a beautiful, spacious Provençal style home with a small detached annexe (available for use from June to September only).

Client Comments

Love the location, love the house, love the weather, love the swimming. Mrs P, South France Villas client September 2018
Lovely house and we had a good holiday. Miriam July 2014
Had a very good time at La Grange. The house is lovely and large, and having large ensuites in all the bedrooms is very convenient. The facilities and utensils in the house are excellent. The outside area and pool are very well maintained and ideal for sitting outside and having a splash in the pool. Very handy having the grocers, bar and restaurants just up the road.Paul, September 2013
