Overview

About the property

Situated on the beautiful Canal du Midi, Mountain View is a charming 13th century village house with a fabulous sun terrace and stunning panoramic views over the Alaric Mountains and Languedoc vineyards.

A beautiful stone spiral staircase leads into the bright, open-plan living and dining area and step through any of the three sets of French doors to the fabulous private south-facing terrace: an ideal spot for sunbathing, relaxing and summertime dining.

The house boasts a large, fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher and a washing machine, and the lounge has comfy sofas with Sky TV and Wi-Fi Internet.

There are three spacious bedrooms and two full bathrooms accommodating 6 guests comfortably and we include good quality bed linens and towels in all our rental rates.

There is a fabulous bakery and mini-mart in the village, perfect for fresh bread and pastries in the morning and basic food provisions. Within a few minutes’ walk you'll find a friendly terrace bar serving drinks and basic lunches and a nice hotel restaurant serving more gourmet lunches and dinners. A mobile pizza van also stops in the village twice a week.

In the nearby town of Trebes, just an 8 minute drive away, you will find a choice of 5 restaurants and all amenities including 3 supermarkets, chemist, doctors, post office, banks and a tourist info office.

Local Information:

The house is located in the village of Marseillette on the border of the Corbieres and Minervois wine regions, so there are plenty of opportunities to take a guided wine tour or to simply visit local producers to taste and purchase excellent local wines.

Just 15 mins away is the medieval Cité de Carcassonne, a Unesco heritage site and an absolute must-see! 52 towers and two rings of fortified walls surround a bustling town with small, narrow cobbled streets lined with restaurants and boutique shops.

The beautiful Canal du Midi is just a 5 minute stroll from the house. You can take a guided cruise or hire your own boat by the hour, day or week. The tree-lined canal tow paths are great for cycling due to the flat terrain (6 bikes available) or try venturing down the Etang de Marseillette behind the Canal to take a beautiful evening stroll on quiet roads lined with sunflower fields, apple orchards and vineyards.

The area around Languedoc is steeped in history; you can visit hilltop Cathar castles, circular villages, beautiful abbeys, cathedrals and historic market towns or just take a drive through picturesque nearby villages and stop to wander around the different local open-air markets and village fetes. For the DaVinci Code aficionados, consider exploring the exciting mystery of the Rennes le Chateau and the Knights Templars

Mediterranean beaches are about a 40 minute drive but there is also a lovely, safe swimming lake with a sandy beach just 15 minutes away. Climbing, walking and hiking are also all popular activities around the area, as well as canoeing, kayaking and fishing along the river Aude.

A true home from home. Authentic and charming.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you see the property it is abundantly clear how much time, effort and thought that Andrea has put into this house. Andrea has thought of and provided everything that you could need. There is no detail that has been overlooked. The house is spotless! The house which has excellent views is located in a small traditional village which is situated on the Canal Du Midi, a minutes walk from the boulangerie and a few minutes walk from the canal.

Fabulous Week

We really loved our week here. Andrea certainly provides everything you need. Lovely bedrooms and that amazing view from the terrace. Spotlessly clean. A great base for seeing all the sights.

Wonderful retreat -- even with 3 little kids!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here in Andrea's property with our three children (ages 8, 6, and 4). It was the perfect place for us to vacation with plenty of space to spread out. The pictures reflected exactly what we found -- a clean, well-stocked hideaway for our family. The only potential difficulty we found was that Marseillette is a pretty small village...perfect in our case as we were looking to escape, but food does require a little forethought. We would (and have already!) recommend this to friends and family. It would be a great deal even at a much higher price, but Andrea has done a good job of keeping the place affordable.

Fabulous Fall Visit

  • 5 of 5

Mountainview is an exceptional property in which to spend your vacation. The owner, Andrea, makes everything easy from the booking to the arrival. The house is comfortable, spotlessly clean, well decorated and well equipped with everything you will need. Andrea's attention to detail makes the difference. The house is conveniently located for walking, boating on

the Canal du Midi, cycling and visiting places such as Carcassonne, Lagrasses and Minerva. The excellent Boulangerie is just steps away for those fresh croissants and pastries. The view from the terrance is outstanding and we enjoyed many breakfasts and dinners outside. There is an extensive library of books and plenty of games to enjoy. Andrea even thought to provide warm wraps so you could sit outside even when the temperature dropped to cool. We would recommend this property to anyone

Relaxing and great views

  • 5 of 5

We had some wonderful days in this great house. We did not lack anything, it was fully equipped and we were able to fully enjoy our vacation. The bedrooms were airy and the beds very nice. It was a great view from the terrace and we sat there and enjoyed well into the evenings. It is close to the Canal du Midi, Carcassonne and other nice little villages. We rolled down to the channel in a minute and could then take a wonderful ride along the Channel. Andrea was very helpful and friendly and gave us great tips on places to visit. We hope we can return again for there is much more that we did not have time to explore during our days in Marseillette.

Amazing House, Great Location, Best Host .....

  • 5 of 5

Before we even arrived in France, Andrea was most helpful and accommodating, allowing us to come to the house early to drop our bags off. From the very start, Andrea was friendly and nothing was too much trouble for her. We felt at home the minute we walked into the house.

The house itself is amazing and the photos do not do it justice. It is the most relaxed we have felt on any holiday and all the little extras like toiletries and the goodies Andrea left for us all added to this.

The village is great for a quiet break away from it all - with the bakery at the end of the road kept us in yummy croissants every morning. Trebes is only 10 minutes away so you are never far from a restaurant, bar or supermarket.

We loved exploring the area, visiting Miriepox, Carcassonne and Collioure and the house is in a great location to do this.

Having the bikes at the house was an added plus and we cycled along the canal and used them to tour the local area.

I can not recommend this property enough, from its location, high standard of accommodation, facilities, parking, bikes, the most amazing view from the terrace and such a welcoming host.

We will definitely be returning soon.

Thank you Andrea for one of the best holidays we have had.
