GITE OLIVIER

Tourouzelle Villa 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.

Wonderful holiday in Tourouzelle

  • 5 of 5
Our second visit to the wonderful Maison Des Vignes in the Languedoc and just as enjoyable as the first. This was our first stay in gite Olivier, having stayed previously in Coquelicot and I have to say that both gites are sympathetically designed and superbly kitted out with some useful home comforts. The properties have been cleverly designed to retain the original character of the former barn (wine storage) but with a fresh, modern feel. The presentation & preparation of the gite was immaculate and the owners take great care to provide everything that you need for your stay. The pool area is very comfortable and conducive to RnR - our kids loved the pool! Jonathan and Suzanne are very welcoming hosts and we really loved the evening get together which they arranged for all the guests, which allowed us to sample some of the delicious local food and wine, produced in the village itself. They have a wealth of local knowledge regarding local activities and attractions which they are on hand to provide if so needed. For cycling fans, Jonathan is able to take you on guided road trips in the gorgeous local area, but be prepared to tackle some challenging hills! Luckily the generous pool is waiting for you on return to massage those tired legs! The location of La Maison Des Vignes is ideal; whether you want to pop over to the village boulangerie for croissant and coffee in the morning, visit the one of the vineyards in the village for degustation or access the canal du midi (only a short drive/cycle away), it's all on your doorstep. The only negative, if you're a beach lover is the slightly longer drive to the beach (30-45 mins) but having said that the beaches are lovely, so worth the drive. Things we would recommend seeing if you're travelling with kids; the nearby ancient town of Minerve, the historic town of Carcassonne, the water park at Narbonne plage, accro park tree climbing centre in Alet les Bains (Corbieres mountains), visiting the lac in Homps with excellent beach and water sports, and of course cycling / boating along the lovely canal du midi. There are some wonderful restaurants nearby; we particularly loved 'Le Bistro Gourmand' in Homps, but would avoid 'En Bonne Companie' which despite it's good reputation for food, demonstrates an obvious dislike for guests with with young children.... Overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending La Maison Des Vignes to anyone. We look forward to coming back again soon, Fred & Aby Aug 2013

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review and we are pleased that you enjoyed this gite as much as you enjoyed staying in Gite Coquelicot. We look forward to welcoming you back soon and next time I will choose some rides with less hills!

August 2013 - Gite Olivier

  • 5 of 5
Our party comprised two for the 1st week, and then we were joined by our daughter and her boyfriend for the 2nd.
The overall impression of Tourouzelle and the surrounding countryside is wonderful. A beautiful village set in lush rolling countryside. Arriving at La Maison Des Vignes was not a disappointment, quietly settled in the centre of the village and yet secluded and not overlooked by other buildings. We had wonderful weather and the village looked at its best, no doubt.
Jonathan quickly showed us the property and dealt with the few formalities.
For us the layout of Olivier was perfect. The main building, with two double bedrooms, kitchen and sitting room, plus bathrooms, was perfect. Louise and Jon moved into the separate (within the same courtyard) building which comprises a double bedroom and very large bathroom. Both buildings are joined by the raised decked patio area with table, chairs and BBQ. A tree keeps the decked area in permanent dappled shade, a definite necessity in the low 30c temperatures we enjoyed throughout the 2 weeks.
The pool is a very good size with plenty of room for 'proper' swimming, or just cooling off in the water.
There is a very comprehensive information book in the gite providing information of local attractions, restaurants, activities etc which we found invaluable.
Of the three gites within the property we felt that Olivier gave the best overall combination of privacy and access to the pool. It also has a separate entrance/exit to the rear of the building.
Jonathan and Suzanna were excellent hosts and managed to get the balance just right in terms of being there if needed but leaving you to enjoy the place very much as if it was one’s own.
Any concerns we may have had regarding the sharing of the pool area were immediately put aside once we met the others who were an extremely friendly and relaxed group of people. We all got on very well indeed. I do think that we were very lucky in this regard, and it is possible to imagine that things might have been slightly different if we had not all got on so well.
Two highlights were the ‘introduction’ evening when all guest meet for a drink and canapés at Jonathan and Suzanna’s beautiful house which is within the same grounds. The second was the dinner at the Mayor’s house, where the Mayor and his wife entertained all of us to the most wonderful dinner. A really great evening!
Overall we would highly recommend La Maison Des Vignes.

Great gite great location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Gite Lavande for a week in middle of June. 5 adults and 2 young children. The villa was spacious with original beams and had everything we needed. BBQ on balcony was a great touch.

Jonathan was friendly and made sure we had everything needed. He even offers to get essential shopping bits ready for arrival (including local wine!). The drinks evening he and his wife hosted was a lovely and a good opportunity to meet people from the other villas and get some information about the area.

Swimming pool was clean with plenty of space. Gate on this and on stairs in villa made it perfect for the children.

They offer beauty treatments at the gite which were great!
Tourouzelle is small but has a village shop (pretty much next door to the gite) and 3 vineyards that all do wine tasting and are the places to pick up wine for the holiday. Cave cooperative was our favourite.

The area is beautiful. We would recommend trips to Homps, Olonzac, Minerve and Carcassone. Even though the area is quiet and peaceful there is lots to do and only 45 minutes from a lots of lovely beaches on the coast.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
We have spent many a holiday in the South of France but this was, by far, the nicest location and the best accommodation we have stayed in. We researched many Gites and apartments prior to deciding on this one but we got the feeling as soon as we read the description of this Gite that we were onto a winner! The accommodation was first class - comfortable, clean and extremely well equipped. The constant hot water was a real bonus! The Gite had a folder which was crammed full of local knowledge and a well stocked book shelf. Although we did not watch the television much there were all the usual English channels and a DVD player.
The pool and the grounds were a delight and were very well maintained.
Jonathan and Suzanna were excellent hosts and we were invited to join them on two occasions when we were treated to local wine and produce - an opportunity to get to known each other in addition to the other guests. Their customer service was exemplary and all delivered with a sense of humour!
The location is ideal for walking and cycling and we were able to use the bikes from the Gite. The area is beautiful with many places to visit either for the day or just for a few hours before returning to the pool! An ideal location to chill out and slow the pace down.
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would have no reservations in recommending this property to family and friends. We very much hope to return at some point in the future.
Sue, Nigel, Celia and Keith ( who loved the little yellow train!)

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 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
