During loving renovation, the house unveiled many historic secrets associated with the Cathars. There are 15 authentic stone arches scattered throughout the property and many 13th century paintings were uncovered. The latter are currently under restoration with the first paintings unveiled in the village Maison de Patrimone (September 2014) revealing 20 chevaliers including one that depicts the coat of arms for Simon de Montfort who was hated in the Languedoc for his cruelty and ambition towards the Cathars; you are sure to feel you have taken a step back in time! However, with all mod cons and a comfortable feel to the living accommodation in the self catering gîte, it is history at its best! With arguably the most spectacular façade in the village, Neuf Rue de Cancans really is a gem nestled within the cobbled streets of a village voted 'One of Frances Prettiest'
The Garden Studio, so called for its access straight into the garden, offers the perfect chance to enjoy easy yet comfortable French living. With a log burner for cooler months and huge glass patio doors, this is a wonderful retreat throughout the year. The Garden Studio, entered through the glass patio doors from the garden, has a fully equipped fitted kitchen, and a dining area with delightful views back into the garden. An imposing archway leads into the lounge with its comfortable furniture a log burner and a front door for easy access to the village.
At the other end of this delightful room and under the original wooden beams is the sleeping area. With clever design and furniture placement, although actually one large room, this feels like 2 separate areas. The sleeping area has a king size double bed (can be made into twin beds to suit all requirements), chest of drawers and a wardrobe for all your storage. A shower room leads off this end of the room, with a large fully tiled Italian walk in shower, WC & vanity sink unit.
During renovations the plans were drawn up to make this a one bedroom apartment but when demolition work unearthed a beautiful hidden stone arch and numerous wooden beams we decided we simply couldn't cover any of these features up with a wall! And so the Garden Studio was born. Free wifi (18mb) available.
The apartment also includes access to the communal garden. One of the few houses within the village walls to have a garden - a little piece of paradise can be found. With its beautiful grassy lawn, 3 BBQ areas, a hot plate plancha, a pizza oven, 5 terraces & solar heated secure pool with sun deck, spending time in the communal garden will be high on your list of priorities.
