This rather grand 19th Century Wine grower's Manor ('Maison de Maitre') in Languedoc, South of France has recently undergone a total renovation of the exterior under the direction of the 'Monuments historiques' team of French architects. Extensive interior refurbishments have restored many original features like oak doors, marble fireplaces and exposed beams in the top floor bedrooms, giving the Languedoc holiday home a great authentic charm.
Next to the very large pool there is a splendid and very spacious pool-house with terracotta tiles which houses the summer kitchen, an outside shower, wc and ping pong table. The well-tended garden provides plenty of space for dining 'alfresco', sitting out or playing ball games.
The 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms make this villa perfect for large family holidays in the South of France.
