Thézan-des-Corbières Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bed, 1 bath, sleeps 3

Maison des Fleurs is a two bedroomed cottage with a sunny balcony where you can eat your morning croissant and watch village life go by. The cottage was formerly a vineyard workers house and is now beautifully renovated and furnished with an eclectic mix of French antiques and practical modern furniture having a well equipped kitchen. The house offers all the amenities necessary for a relaxing holiday at any time of the year - it has fans for the summer and, for the cooler winter evenings, radiators in all rooms plus a Godin wood burning stove in the kitchen/dining room. The cottage has wi fi.

Thezan des Corbieres is still a wine making village and vineyards surround the property offering enticing walks and bike rides. The village has all the amenities necessary, Boulangerie/Epicerie, Tabac/Post Office,Cafe/Bar and Brocante, it is only 15 minutes from the market town of Lezignan-Corbieres and 20 minutes from the larger town of Narbonne. Many airports serve this region, a testament to its popularity, Carcassonne and Beziers are the closest being about half an hour away, but Toulouse, Montpellier and Perpignan are also quite close being less than 2 hours drive.

Situated in the heart of historic Cathar country this area is a dream for those interested in history. Ancient abbeys such as Fontfroide (10 minutes drive) and World Heritage Sites like Carcassonne and the Canal du Midi are only half an hour away and, in Narbonne, you will find interesting evidence of the presence of the Romans when Narbonne was the centre of Roman Gaul. If, however, you just want to relax, there are also 44 beautiful beaches from which to choose, some only 16 miles distant. Just ten minutes away at St Laurent de la Cabrerisse is a fabulous river where locals and tourists swim and relax in the summer. For further information visit our website.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved staying in a traditional village, not at all touristy, and the gite was as cute as a button. Our host, Diane, could not have been more helpful, ensuring we had everything we needed.. and more besides! Also offering lots of advice on where to visit both locally and further afield. We hope to be returning in the future and wouldn't hesitate in recommending the gite to anyone - can't fault it.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house! It is beautifully renovated and decorated and it is very comfortable. The toilet is on the first floor and the bedrooms are on the third floor, but that wasn't a problem for us. Also we did not miss the TV and there was always plenty of parking available around the corner. Diane was a very welcoming host, and she went out of her way to help us and make us feel comfortable. We can't wait to go back!

Rundum verwöhnt!

  • 5 of 5

Das schön renovierte Häuschen erinnert ein bisschen an ein Museum, wer einen Hang für Antiquitäten hat, wird es ebenso bezaubernd finden. Für 2-3 Personen ist es vollkommen ausreichend. Wir fühlten uns durch die Vermieter sehr gut betreut. Im Kühlschrank standen erste Aufmerksamkeiten, die Vermieter informierten uns über Ausflugstipps in die Umgebung. In der Nähe eröffnete ein netter Imbiss, vor dem sich abends der Ort traf. Fazit: sehr empfehlenswert.
