La Maison de Jean is the perfect location for an idyllic, peaceful holiday in this, as yet mostly undiscovered, yet easily accessible, part of the Mediterranean. A short drive from airports at Perpignan, Carcassonne, Toulouse, Beziers and Girona, the surrounding area has a wealth of attractions. Vineyards and wine tastings, Châteaux and Domaines, ancients monasteries and medieval castles, Tour de France routes, Cathar Castles, nearby coastlines and Pyrenees are all within easy reach.
This beautifully presented and recently refurbished French cottage, set in the wine village of Villeneuve les Corbieres, has spectacular views of the vineyards and hills. Every care has been taken with its renovation to provide a home from home experience and for its visitors to enjoy the unique pace and ambiance of The Languedoc. A small ,private, outside pool and hot tub overlook the river and uninterrupted views of the pretty, Corbieres hills.
Very romantic location

La Maison de Jean is our 'get away from it all ' place. There is truly something magical about the place and everyone who visits never wants to leave .
The house is so relaxing and is a 'get away from it all' holiday cottage, you won't want to leave. The area is a little like Provence was 20 years ago, totally unspoilt. For all its rural attractiveness there is a 3* Michelin Restaurant two village away, which is amazing. We are surrounded by beautiful and interesting Cathar Castles and vineyards.
we fell in love with this house as it was originally an old stone sheep fold which had been converted. It is unusual and quaint. We love sitting on the patios, whether by the pool or in the other tree filled garden, listening to the river babbling away. The frog chorus is astounding. A true haven of tranquility and a romantic place to get away from the hustle and bustle of home and business life. We never want to leave when we are at the cottage.
Villeneuve les Corbieres itself has a grocery shop, post office, atmospheric restaurant ' Corbierou' and several, private wine tasting rooms. (Michelin Star restaurant a ten minute drive away. All facilities, such as supermarket, bank, doctors, dentists etc can be found in the neighbouring town of Durban Corbieres, only 5km away. The 12th Century Châteaux in Durban, beautifully lit at night, is a must-see. The Cathar Trail goes through the village of Villeneuve, with nearby castles such as Aguilar, Queribus, and Peyrepertreuse on the doorstep. It is excellent cycling country for the more energetic and the Tour de France has for several years gone through neighbouring villages. The sea beaches of the Languedoc tend to be larger and sandier than Provence's pebbly equivalents. Twenty minutes away is the nearest beach at Leucate, which has an excellent rating and feels a little like an Australian beach town, with attractive houses climbing up pretty fir-covered hills. Carcassonne is the most visited place in France and is a wonderful day out.
