Contemporary, modern and striking this villa with private pool on the edge of a typical Mediterranean wine producing village en route to the Cathar castle land.
A young local family have built an ensemble of six villas each with its own pool, on the edge of a Corbiere village. South facing they are open towards the countryside in a lovely environment. Whilst there is shared parking as you drive into the entrance to the villas, each house has privacy around the pool and pool terrace. They are not directly overlooked by neighbours (see Ref: AU018A, AU020A, AU021A, AU031A and AU032A).
The whole space also serves as a showcase for the owner's considerable experimental artistic talent and flair - the villas have murals, mosaics around the pool, sculptures, and very large sculpted pieces in the villa grounds. Bold and challenging they make an unusual contrast to the Mediterranean landscape around.
This villa is built on one level, is spacious, well equipped and comfortably furnished. Glass doors lead out onto a pool side terrace. Mr Riviere is an artist and some of his work and paintings feature in and around the property.
The six villas can be rented together, for a group of up to 38 people, and owners can organise guided visits to the local vineyards, quad biking, horse-riding, and a visit to a spa.

This property is one of 4 villas that the Owners have built on a large area of 16,000m2 (see AU018A, AU020A, AU021A, AU031A and AU032A). The owners planted many oleanders and other Mediterranean trees and bushes in the summer of 2010. The 6 properties are surrounded by an "Artists Wall" created by the Owner which acts as a piece of art in itself to enhance the viewing of his work.
Each one of the four has a garden area of 800m2 and a private pool with a terrace area and BBQ area. The large living-dining rooms have direct access on to the covered terrace, which provides shade during those hot afternoons by the pool.
The 10m x 5m x 1.4m swimming pool is fitted with an alarm according to the French pool safety law. Children's pool toys available. The pool boarder, garden side is not very wide, and shouldn't be used for diving.
Garden furniture - outside table and chairs for 6 plus 6 chaises longues for sunbathing.
Car-Parking for 2 cars.
The whole space also serves as a showcase for the owner's considerable experimental artistic talent and flair - the villas have murals, mosaics around the pool, sculptures, and very large sculpted pieces in the villa grounds. Bold and challenging they make an unusual contrast to the Mediterranean landscape. There are two very large sculptures as one enters the property - the 'central' piece - is a tree, which has been turned into a stone sculpture with lots of pieces of glass and mirror - children should be supervised and discouraged from playing in these areas, both for their safety and not to damage the work.
This lovely villa is situated near Montseret, a typical Mediterranean wine-producing village in the Corbieres. The owners have vineyards and the local Cave Cooperative is just around the corner.
