Property Summary

A Converted Wine Domaine in the Languedoc, South of France sleeps 12.

It is now possible to rent Syrah and Merlot for 6 people each - please ask for price/availability details.  21 July to 4 August available at €1313 euro per apartment for 6.

Availability 12 people for 2018: 2 to 4 July, 8 to 12 July, 17 July to 4 August, 1 to 7 September, 25 September to 1 October, 7 to 16 October, 21 to 28 October, 3 to 29 November, from 4 December onwards.

This Languedoc, South of France property was a working wine 'domaine' until the owners renovated the buildings and built a swimming pool.  In fact there are two swimming pools on the Domaine and this property is suitable for rental for small weddings and events because the 5 properties on the Domaine can sleep over 30 guests.  Merlot and Syrah can sleep 6 guests in each apartment or 12 guests if the property is rented as a whole by one large family or two families holidaying together in the South of France.

The property is set in 12 hectares of olive groves and fields.

The very large swimming pool (15mx6m) has an automatic cleaning system. It has a large terrace with plenty of sun-loungers.

2 cottages on the domaine - MERLOT & SYRAH sleeping 6 each or 12 together, with a second private pool, nice grounds and an olive grove are now available for rent. In July and August these two properties can only be rented together but in June and September and in the low season they can be rented separately. Please note that the pool will be shared! This is absolutely ideal for 2 families to holiday together without stepping on each others toes, providing plenty of bathrooms and outside living space in a safe and child friendly environment.

During High Season entry to Merlot and Syrah is accessible only by the steps at the rear of the Syrah property, the front entrance to Merlot and the courtyard garden is not accessible, ensuring privacy for all parties on the Domaine.

Also this is an ideal location for an event with the domaine providing a total of 36 sleeping places in 4/5 houses. The two largest apartments, HE015A Sauvignon and HE015B Chardonnay are in a late 19th century villa, 40m from the swimming pool. Each has its own separate entrance and private terrace. The third smaller cottage, 'Cabernet', again with its own private entrance, garden and terrace, is part of another building about 50m away see HE015C Cabernet.

PLEASE ASK FOR PRICES FOR GITES IF YOU WANT TO RENT THEM SEPARATELY, OR IF YOU WANT TO RENT THE WHOLE DOMAINE WITH 5 HOUSES SLEEPING 36 PEOPLE.

There is a newly converted 'cave' at the domaine, providing a function room to seat approx 40, with kitchen and cloakroom. Please contact us for rental details.
