This is a beautifully renovated *4 bedroomed South of France village house marrying in perfect harmony the old warm exposed stonework with modern steel and glass. The renovation of this holiday home was done by a young architect who was determined to suffuse living spaces with light giving the house an 'open' plan feel.
'Maison Minervois' is situated in a quiet South of France wine growing village in the Aude area of Languedoc, yet the mediterranean beaches are within a 30-40 minute drive.
This property has 2 outside areas, one large walled courtyard houses the heated 9m x 3m swimming pool, summer kitchen with fridge and BBQ, garden chairs and a table for eating outdoors, the second is a small entrance courtyard accessing the house, partly covered.
This holiday home offers both authenticity and high quality, a great place to spend a family vacation in the South of France.
*Air-conditioning in all 4 bedrooms to be installed for the 2024 season.

The entrance to this lovely South of France holiday house is through the original wooden 'cave' doors - they open onto a small courtyard from where the house is accessed via large glass doors.
The large glass sliding doors open out completely losing all division between the 'exterior' and 'interior' space, of this holiday property. Most of the materials used for the renovation are authentic and 'organic' - original stonework, wood, salvaged beams and plastered ceiling 'a l'ancienne'. Walls are decorated with lovely modern paintings.
The main living area and fully equipped modern kitchen are ingeniously centred around the courtyards. giving the house and all the rooms extra volume, but also a homely intimacy.

Seven of us had the most magical week-long stay at the Maison Minervois. The house is gorgeous, with ancient walls but modern appliances and comforts. The town is charming and quiet, but just a short drive from many sites and activities. Andre was there to answer any questions and to provide assistance at a moment’s notice. The pool is clean and a lovely sanctuary on hot days. We were enchanted by the “indoor-outdoor” living spaces which crated a very open feeling and could be accessed through glass doors. This house is truly unique and special, we hope to return some day! Clea and family - July 2018
Nous avons passe un moment merveilleux dans votre belle maison! Merci beaucoup pour votre hospitalite! Nous esperons revenir un jour. (We had a marvellous stay in your lovely house.

We had a lovely stay, the villa was stunning and the owner was very welcoming.Amber, September 2016
We just stayed at Maison Minervois, a group of 6 adults, and loved it. What a perfect villa and so beautiful. Please pass on to Andre and his wife how much we enjoyed their property. It was a perfect size, lovely pool and yard and it had great beds! Andre brought us a list of places to visit and restaurants to try. Very helpful. We also loved visiting Languedoc and the Aude. So very pretty and interesting. Thank you. Charlie and Jane, Mike and Liz, Jane and Jim, September 2016
