Maison du Mûrier, our charming, spacious traditional French 'Maison de Village' is in a medieval, wine growing village at the edge of the Haut Languedoc National Park within easy reach of the coast, the Canal du Midi and the Herault and Orb valleys. We'd be really pleased to chat with you about our house or the area as written descriptions only go so far and you may have specific questions that we haven't addressed here. Do feel free to ring us.
Our house provides an excellent base for exploring this beautiful area of France with its medieval towns. Our three storey house has high ceilings and remains cool in the height of summer. The large, secluded courtyard with swimming pool enjoys a sunny aspect but there is also ample shade for those who prefer it. We have a wonderful mulberry tree which provides perfect shade and parasols which you can move around. In the evening candlelight & pool lighting makes it the perfect setting for ambient dining al fresco. There is a stone BBQ, table and seating for more than ten people and smaller tables dotted around the courtyard. Our village has a well stocked grocer shop, baker (rumour has it the current owner may be selling but we hope it will remain a not, the grocer shop next door also sells bread), post office, pharmacy, hairdresser, church, playground, bar/restaurant and local wine 'caves' which sell their own wines. There is an excellent, larger Super U (with petrol, chemist, post office & cash point) is just 5 minutes drive away in Roujan.
On the ground floor is the large hallway from which come the lounge and dining room. there is also a kitchen and loo with basin on the ground floor. You will enjoy the traditional French tiles in many of our rooms. The four bedrooms are on the first floor with one of the bathrooms which has a bath/shower, loo, wash basin and hairdryer. The bedrooms are spacious and all have plenty of storage. The second bathroom with shower, loo and wash basin is on the second floor. There are three loos altogether in the house. We have a 'barn' attached to the property with a washing machine and a second large fridge. Our guests find this invaluable in the summer for storing bottles and boxes of wine! Our house is very much our second home and we enjoy spending as much time there as we can. We hope you will enjoy your time in Gabian as much as we always do.
