Property Summary

South of France modern holiday home with 2 pools one heated, sleeps 8.

After 15th September price per week down to 1165 Euro

Weekends possible in low season, contact us for details!

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 more in keeping with a New York penthouse than a French viticole wine 'cave'.

'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 and here you will find the plunge pool.

This holiday home offers both authenticity and luxury a great place to spend a family vacation in the South of France. There is a sister property 250 mts away, AU005A La Mirouze again with 4 bedrooms and a pool should you wish to have a holiday with friends yet keep your own independence.

Client Comments

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

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
