Aude Montagne Noire - Castans

Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Villeneuve-Minervois, Carcassonne, Aude, Occitanie
Unique. Unpretentious.

Overlooking the tiny hamlet of Lafargue, part of the commune of Castans, the house is set in a steep hillside garden. A large south facing terrace gives fine views down the valley. A small fast flowing river runs close by. Chestnut and evergreen oak woods cover much of the surrounding hillsides. Wildlife abounds: deer, wild boar and many species of bird. A network of well waymarked footpaths provides a choice of walks from one hour strolls to eight hour hikes.
Inside besides the three upstairs bedrooms there is a living room with log fire, a utility room, two bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen with a table seating up to eight. A large rock in one corner is an unusual feature!.
Small children will need close supervision in the steep terraced garden.
Villeneuf & Mazamet are interesting Market towns,25...

Local farmers in the hamlet will also be happy to provide you with the freshest produce for your dinner, so you can discover a traditional side of France that most tourists will never enjoy.
