Overview

About the property

4 rooms with charming garden and private pool 9m20x4m

Situated in Cathar Country, 30 km from the sea, this house is an old wine cellar built in the early last century. This magnificent building has gradually developed into a great family house of character. Old and new come together and happily grant the building a unique character.

If you enjoy walking, cycling, abbeys, Cathar castles, sun, food and wine, the region of Albas seduce you without a doubt!

If you prefer to rest or relax in the water, lounge chairs surround a pool of 9. 25 by 4 meters in a typical garden of Corbières.

Description of the village: Albas is a wonderful little village of 65 inhabitants, the vines are emerging between the majestic rocks and wild scrubland typical to the Mediterranean. The village is quiet and yet the summer, this little paradise is in sync with vacationers, its little square welcomes those who wish to drink a drink at night, eating a barbecue, participate in a game of bowls .. And all this in the joy and happiness of small and large. The siesta is sacred. Peddlers bring you fresh baguette in the morning, fruits and vegetables, ... The locals are happy to present their crops, including the exceptional and unique tomatoes will make you happy!

Recently, Martine, daughter of the village, opened a small shop where you can troubleshoot, control, enjoy the wonderful and delicious vegetables from his garden. A small space in the shade of plane trees, built on the site allows to enjoy a coffee or an aperitif, while encountering one or another colorful figure of our village.

The corner of ... activities: Not far from our village, distractions abound! Here are some ideas for outings:

- A trip to the sea (35 km), with its long sandy beaches and dramatic cliffs.

- An original tasting of Leucate oysters, known for their finesse and incomparable freshness, the center of oyster farming, typical and authentic place.

- Wine lovers will delight in visiting the numerous wineries. Proud of their production winemakers: Fitou, Corbières ... serve generously the fruits of their harvest passionately commenting tasting.

- A desire to change countries! Spain is not far away, 1 hour to get to the border, change of scenery.

- And of course, do not forget to visit Cathar castles and the equally famous city of Carcassonne.

Local Gastronomy: Gastronomy is also very present, good fresh local ingredients that are found in various markets, including Narbonne (and its magnificent halls!)And Lezignan, where local producers offer products of the sea and the land.

5 km of Albas is a restaurant 'three star Michelin: the inn of old wells Fonjoncouse.

From mid-July, every Tuesday evening barbecue on the village square, everyone brings a small supplement, we share with the people present (if desired!) and for a few euros, grilled masterfully prepared is eaten by the 'specialists' of the village, special time where we are going to meet the locals. Every Thursday: petanque competition for small and large family playing with friends or you always find one (s) or the other to 'team up' if you are alone!

NEW: recently, a shepherdess settled in the scrubland of Albas, she invites you to share his passion and organized very professionally breakfast nature where you will discover the fascinating life of Florence and his sheep. Very interesting and quite rare today, we recommend you not to miss this opportunity

Little corner of paradise

  • 5 of 5

A perfect home from home where all amenities were provided. A beautiful property enhanced by artwork and surprise artifacts around the house and garden. Beautiful roses and flowering oleander shrubs plus fruit trees in the garden made it a pleasure to lounge and relax dipping in and out of the pool to cool off. The pool was the star attraction deep enough for two grown sons to dive and enjoy assault course challenge games with floats etc. Muriel was charming and very helpful and even helped us join in the village meal following an annual event, a real French experience for our boys partners who had not had this opportunity before. A beautiful property in a charming village, we would certainly stay again.

einfach wunderschön

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus ist traumhaft. Wir waren im Herbst dort und hatten schöne, klare und warme Tage. Am Abend haben wir es uns vor dem Holzofen gemütlich gemacht. Das Haus liegt im Landesinneren und man hat daher absolute Ruhe. Ein Auto ist unbedingt notwendig. Wir werden auf jeden Fall nochmals dort Urlaub machen.

Nettes Haus zum entspannen

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit 6 Erwachsenen und 5 Kleinkindern in dem Haus. Es gibt viel Platz zum spielen und genug Schlafzimmer, was uns wichtig war.

Das Dorf ist sehr abgelegen in den Bergen, wer regelmäßige Ausflüge plant wird damit Probleme haben aber für uns war es super. Alles war sauber und auch der Pool wurde gereinigt.

Die Treppe im Haus ist nicht unbedingt kindergeeignet.

Owner's Response: Un tout grand merci pour votre commentaire positif concernant notre maison située dans ce magnifique petit village typique des Corbières, nous avons en effet, le soucis du bien être, du confort, de l'authenticité et de la propreté pour les personnes qui nous font confiances et occupent notre propriété. Cette région en sus d'être très intéressante au niveau historique (châteaux Cathares) développe également la culture, la gastronomie et les balades pour les plus sportifs !

belle cave restaurée ; A recommander

  • 4 of 5

Jolie maison dans un village typique . Tres bon accueil par Muriel et Gilles !

La maison est pratique et tres agréable . la literie est confortable , nous avons beaucoup profité des exterieurs de la maison. Une belle piscine appréciée de toute la famille et sécurisée ce qui est rassurant pour les enfants en bas ages .

Nous avons apprécié la plage de Leucate , une belle plage calme et encore éloignée du tourisme habituel . Les Corbières et ses chateaux ont enchanté les petits comme les grands ... Peyrepertuse particulièrement grace a son spectacle de fauconnerie ( mais il faut penser a prendre son gilet )

Nous avons eu l'occasion de participer a une fête de village , moules frites et soirée dansante . Géniale !

Il nous reste tant de choses a découvrir encore ... que nous reviendrons !

Merci
