Tourouzelle Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Coquelicot/Olivier 2/3 bed, 2/3 bth, Sleeps 4-6 Lavande 3 bed, 2 bth, Sleeps 6-8

La Maison Des Vignes (The House of Vines) sits in the heart of the lovely village of Tourouzelle, in the sunny Languedoc Roussillon area of the South of France, within a short drive are the beaches of the Mediterranean, Carcassonne and Montpellier.

Situated in the Minervois and bordering the Corbiere wine regions, this former vigneron estate dates back to the 1600’s and is built in the traditional stone typical of the region.

The architect-designed, newly renovated barn conversions have created 3 spacious gites which have all the character of the old stone walls, high ceilings and original wooden beams, combined with all the comforts and ‘mod cons’ that will make your stay here all the more pleasurable. There is also a heated pool in the landscaped, walled gardens.

Whether you wish to soak up the sunshine by the pool or the beach, enjoy the fabulous food and wine of the area, play golf, cycle or walk, you are sure to discover your ‘joie de vivre’ at La Maison Des Vignes.

Body Zone at La Maison Des Vignes: We are also pleased to offer our guests on site beauty treatments. There are a range of treatments available including hot stone therapy, massages, reflexology, facials, manicures and pedicures all at a very reasonable price. Bookings can be made before you arrive and full details can be found on our website.

Golf: Outside of the hot summer months of July & August, the weather is ideal for a round of golf. Within easy access of Tourouzelle are several golf courses that golfers of all levels will find rewarding. From the beautiful setting of Mazamet golf course in the Black Mountains to the course at Carcassonne with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside.

Walking and Cycling: Enjoy walking amongst the spectacular scenery of the vineyards, the Black Mountains or for the more adventurous the Pyrenees are a short distance away. Many local villages, including Tourouzelle have marked walks that cover different types of terrain and are suitable for walkers of all different levels.

The immediate area around Tourouzelle offers endless possibilities for anything from a short ride up to full days mountain-biking or road cycling. Cycle routes will take you through the vineyards of the Minervois and Corbieres wine region and for the keen cyclist you can follow in the cycle tracks of the previous years Tour de France.

Tranquility in Tourouzelle

  • 5 of 5
Coquelicot was our tranquil home for a week & as two adults, a teenager & a child, we were very comfortable there. It was spotlessly clean and full of everything we needed. The beds were comfy & there was plenty of storage. Our balcony overlooked the beautiful & very well-tended walled pool area and we enjoyed many evening BBQs there with the swallows swooping overhead.
The 3 properties were well spaced out & the overall space cleverly designed, so although full, it never felt it.
Jonathan and Susannah were prefect hosts - welcoming & there if you needed them, discrete if you didn't. On arrival night they treated us to drinks & canapés (home-made!) before inviting us to join them at Tourouzelle's Bastille night celebrations. It was great fun & an introduction to the village & it's characters which we carried through to the last night when we had a fabulous dinner with the mayor (in his dining-room!)
Tourouzelle is well located for visiting the coast, some of France's major cities, umpteen vineyards, the medieval ramparts of Carcassonne & the Canal du Midi. (Try the electric boats for an hour is you have small children.) It is a stunning area & there is so much to do here for families and couples alike, that I recommend two weeks rather than one!

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to Maison les Vignes. It is a very comfortable gite in a nice very french village. The location is good for the beach and also the lovely surrounding villages and National Park.
Friendly owners who can give help with local wine restaurants etc. A very enjoyable welcome evening is provided.
The gite is very well equipped especially if you fly. Very nice pool area My one tiny comment was the gite could have been cleaner, all the important areas sinks toilets kitchen were clean some other parts needed a bit of a better clean.
Don't go to the beach every day though the surrounding hills and villages are really beautiful. We will visit again.

France at its finest

  • 5 of 5
Following the recommendation of friends, we first went to La Maison des Vignes in 2007, and we have been back four times now - so maybe that says it all. The owners, Suzanna and Jonathan, who live on site, are always warm, welcoming and a mine of useful information about the area and in particular aspects that as a visitor one might not get to know about... dinner cooked by the Mayor of Tourouzelle in his home, local peaches from a house tucked away in the village, lunches in out of the way (and not so out of the way) restaurants, markets, vineyards, the best beaches and the best places for seafood, fantastic cycling routes - the list goes on. It is a beautiful region, with so much to see and do.

Suzanna and Jonathan organise a welcome evening every Sunday, a good opportunity to meet the occupants of the other gites and to exchange information. We have always got on well with the other guests - including this year, when we all got together for a spontaneous and highly enjoyable farewell evening (on the terrace of Coquelicot).

On our first visit we only stayed for a week but quickly realised that it wasn't long enough. We have always stayed in Gite Coquelicot and having at one time or another looked around the other two gites, know that it is characteristically well maintained and equipped and tastefully decorated and furnished - in fact way beyond other holiday apartments that we have stayed in. The pool is perfect for relaxing (and exercising), and the arrangement with Karen, who offers various treatments and massages is a bonus - there is nothing like a massage after a long drive down.

Ultimately we know that the question, 'Would you recommend this to a friend?' is a good indicator of the value of something. Well, La Maison des Vignes was recommended to us, and in turn, we have recommended it, and as I write this friends are staying there now.

It really is France at its finest.

Excellent and well appointed

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 4 adults spend a fantastic week at La Maison des Vignes, Coquelicot gite, in late June. The apartment was perfect for us with plenty of space to stretch out and not get in each others way. The kitchen was very well equipped and we made good use of the barbecue on the patio. We could imagine getting good use of the beautiful pool and deck loungers, had the weather been a bit warmer. Jonathan was a terrific host who provided us with lots of useful information about the area. They have also compiled a wonderful binder full ideas. I would not hesitate to recommend LMDV to friends and family.

Gite Coquelicot

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I and another couple stayed in the Gite Coquelicot for 2 weeks at the end of May 2013. We have been to Languedoc many times and found this gite to be the best one yet.
The gite has been professionally converted within an old stone building; making it a very comfortable accommodation especially for 2 couples. There is a large terrace for this gite, overlooking the beautiful and well maintained grounds.
The owners, who live on the property, made us feel very welcome and comfortable, and were always available for any special needs. They also had a weekly guest reception to help with local area orientation while sampling local wines, which was very enjoyable.

Car: recommended

La Maison Des Vignes is located in the centre of Tourouzelle, a characteristic French village and opposite the front gate you will find the village shop that doubles as a cafe and small bistro and the post office.

Wine production is the main activity within the village and you can walk to the village’s three different wine domaines.

The wide sandy beaches of the Mediterranean are only 40 min drive and if you fancy a change from the beach, then head towards Lac de Jouarres only a 5 min drive from La Maison Des Vignes, or if you prefer you could cycle there instead.

For those who prefer to be on the water rather than in it, the historic Canal du Midi is less than 3 km from La Maison Des Vignes.

As well as the many Cathar and Medieval castles in the area, there are also many Abbeys to explore.

The Cities of Carcassonne (the setting for the new Labyrinth film), Narbonne, Beziers and Montpellier are within a short drive
