Green Horizons is a unique house set in six acres of beautiful park and woodland on the edge of Puivert village in Occitanie, South of France.
Our self-contained apartment is bright and spacious, with its own private terrace and garden. You will have access to our outdoor swimming pool, which will be shared with our other guests.
The apartment is ideal for couples on a romantic break, or a family with a child. Double bedroom with ensuite bathroom. The open-plan living room has a well-equipped kitchen corner, a dining area overlooking the garden, and a comfortable lounge area with satellite TV and a DVD player, as well as an easily-converted day bed. The bathroom has a rainforest shower, and is equipped with hair-dryer, towels and toiletries. We can provide you with a travel cot and baby bath, or addition beds on request. You will have your own private entrance with drive and parking space. The apartment is fully accessible for people with restricted mobility. Free Wi-Fi is available.
Enjoy a meal or a barbecue on your own sunny terrace with a view of the pool, or relax in the private studio garden. Steps lead down to the beautiful pool (open from mid-May to mid-October) and the pool-house, which you will share with a small number of other guests; you are welcome to explore and relax in the lovely grounds where you will find a children’s play area, picnic tables and hammocks.
The studio apartment is self-catering: the boulangerie in Chalabre has freshly-baked bread, croissants and cakes; fetch milk from the nearby farm after milking in the evenings; visit the local brewery; fill a “cubi” with wine from the organic vineyard; shop in nearby markets for seasonal fruits and vegetables. For a break from cooking, Puivert village also offers a range of restaurants, bars and cafés around the lake in season, or Chalabre (10 minutes’ drive or 20 minutes by bike) has bars and restaurants all year round.
You are welcome to store your bicycles safely in our rainproof barn. Clothes washing and drying facilities are available on request.
