Villeseque-des-Corbieres House Rental Photos and Description
House, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-4)
This superbly renovated and decorated stone house with roof terrace in a pretty wine growing village about 50 minutes from both Perpignan and Carcassonne airports. This absolute gem is the perfect holiday home only 17 kilometres from the sparkling Mediterranean, in a picture postcard village with shop and bar/restaurant and only five minutes from the bustling village of Durban with supermarket, restaurant, and open air pool.
It is not very big (72 square metres over three floors) and there is only one pukka bedroom but it is full of surprises and wonderful original features; white painted exposed beams, quaint tiled floors, staircases, and fireplace, and is decorated in exquisite taste known here in Southern France as 'shabby chic' (very 'Cote Sud' - the up-market French magazine).
On the ground floor a large sitting room (with a daybed) and bathroom beautifully tiled and separate WC. On the middle floor the most romantic bedroom imaginable with fireplace and again beautifully decorated.
On the top floor a large whitewashed country kitchen with stone walls, tiled floor, dining area, and fireplace, and, over the staircase, a cleverly built-in single bed-size sleeping platform (a child would love it!) with stepladder. Then it is outside through huge sliding glass doors the full width of the house onto the roof terrace - a delightful place for al fresco dining and soaking up the sun, with views across the village to the church.
This wonderful little property is the perfect Mediterranean holiday home.

About The Owner
Here I am on a film shoot in Washington, DC with my set makeup bag, holding the boom for the soundman while he made an
adjustment. It is obviously winter.
I am a free-lance makeup artist/stylist for 34 yrs. in the Balto.Md/Washington, DC Area.
I've worked on movies, commercials, politicals, sports, docudrama, corporate, industrial, stills,TV movies, HBO, PBS and love my work, my clients and my peers.
Why The Owner chose Villeseque-des-Corbieres
To be near the sea........to be in an authentic non-touristy village......... this area is what Provence once was, quiet, beautiful, full of surprises,
lots of creative people are drawn to this area for its purity of spirit. You are able to walk thru the vineyards within steps of the house. Wonderful
walking, hiking, biking.
As a stylist,I am keenly sensitive to 'style' in the classic sense, the French are masters of living life artfully with great taste and style. Their language is the most beautiful in the world.
I love the quiet, with the only noise being church bells, children laughing, birds singing, and of course, the toot of the bread truck.
What makes this house unique
I love my Senior neighbors with their big smiles, their charming dresses. I love seeing my neighbor walking his goats and donkey. How sweet to
park under a goat pasture. Hearing the bread truck toot it's horn outside my door.
The swallows sweeping overhead, singing.....
The star-filled sky when I am having a glass of wine with friends on the terrace in the evening.
The chidren after school playing with their friends on their way home, passing my doorway..... a fire in the MBR with a glass of cognac.
