About Roger & Jane Hollings
Jane and Roger lived in the UK and bought the Winemaker's House and its two Gites (La Fleurie and Le Fitou) in June 2015 and it is now their permanent home. It fulfils their dream to live in France close to the Med. We have really enjoyed the experience so far, meeting all sorts of interesting and entertaining people; both guests and locals alike.
Roger & Jane Hollings purchased this House in 2015
Why Roger & Jane Hollings chose Mirepeisset
The Languedoc felt right for us from the start. Close to the Mediterranean but not overwhelmed by tourists, the area has an incredible and varied mix of beautiful landscapes and an almost limitless choice of things to do and places to visit. Couple this to friendly locals and great food and wine, the decision was easy. The Winemakers House ticked all the boxes - characterful, in a great location and with an existing Gite business with the potential to develop further.

Le Fitou - family stay
We had a wonderful time at Le Fitou. Roger and Jane were excellent hosts, full of interesting information about the surrounding areas and some excellent recommendations of places to see/eat out which we took them up on. The property itself is lovely and peaceful and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We travelled with two small children and the property and outside space were suitable for them. Thanks for a great time!
Four heavenly days at The Winemakers House in Le Fitou. A beautiful, spacious, well equipped comfortably furnished gite. A home from home in terms of facilities, plus a large pool, lovely garden, even Sky TV for the heathen. Roger & Jane’s attention to detail was much appreciated, we wanted for nothing. Their warm welcome and arrival briefing meant we had 4 really good days seeing and doing much more than we’d planned. Fantastic location and lots to do, the kids will love it when we return.
Superb property in a lovely Languedoc village
Great Gite and a fantastic swimming pool. Roger and Jane were the perfect hosts and we particularly appreciated the very generous welcome pack they provided. All the basic amenities (washing materials, toilet paper etc) were also in plentiful supply and we wished all other Home Away properties would do the same! The village is lovely and very welcoming with two good restaurants within walking distance and many others within a short drive. No hesitation in recommending this Gite and just follow Roger and Janes suggested itineraries, you wont go far wrong! Thanks again for a great stay. The Plants!
Many thanks Jimmy. It was great to meet you all and we hope to welcome you back one day.

Lovely family holiday at Le Fitou
We had a wonderful holiday at Roger and Janes Le Fitou Gite in Mirepeisset.
The gite was very clean and spacious and had everything in it you could ever need ,
We were a party of four so didn't use the 3rd bedroom but the gite would easily accommodate 6 people in comfort .
The pool was lovely and a great size and very clean and there were plenty of sun loungers and sun shades available.
We loved the area and found it very central to most things , Narbonne only a short drive , Carcassone nearby , kayaking , cycling and lots of nice restaurants , we found Roger and Jane very helpful and friendly and they definitely made our stay so much better.
we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this gite to anybody and left with only happy memories of a great holiday.
Many thanks Judith. It was a pleasure to meet you all.

The Winemaker's House in Mirepeisset has two 3 bedroom Gites both with swimming pools and is an ideal base for exploring the Languedoc- Roussillon area.
The village has a general store providing all your basic needs including fresh bread and croissants and has two restaurants (one open all year round).
Close by is the historic village of Le Somail on the Canal du Midi with several restaurants to chose from (as well as a wonderful old book shop!).
In Ginestas - three kilometres away - you can find a bank, pharmacy and more restaurants.
A large Intermarche super market with 24/7 fuel is only 5 minutes away.
The ancient city of Narbonne is just a 15 km drive. Well worth a visit for its Roman road, cathedral, canal and famous covered market.
Carcassonne is a favourite destination with its old fortified city that has starred in many a film. It is an easy 40 minute drive.
The Mediterranean is only 30-40 minutes away and there are several great beaches within easy reach - Gruissan, Narbonne Plage, La Franqui and Leucate to name but a few.
For the slightly more adventurous there is kayaking in Roquebrun on the River Orb. (This is highly recommended from personal experience) as well as white water rafting in the Pyrenees.
Another must see are the Cathar Castles. Quiberus and Peyrepertuse are two spectacular examples and are an hour or so away.
Let's not forget the wine. Languedoc Roussillon is the biggest wine producing area in France with many famous names - Fitou, Minervois, Corbieres and St Chinian. Mirepeisset has its own domain - Les Herbes Saintes.
Bike rides (bike hire can easily be arranged), horse riding, walking, boat trips on the Canal du Midi are all readily available. A typical comment from our guests is that there is so much to do they will have to come back!
