Holiday in the Minervois - Languedoc

Located in the small hamlet of Paguignan, in the heart of the Minervois wine region of Longuedoc – Roussilon, this beautifully restored winemakers home offers luxury accommodation In La Maison des Barriques for 4/5 people and La Petite Maison for 4.

Map of FranceLa Maison des Barriques and La Petite Maison are the perfect retreats for those wishing to enjoy mediterranean France, to soak up the atmosphere, to bathe in the sun , to visit the Cathar Castles or to explore the stunning landscape. A paradise for painters, walkers (and strollers) Just 2 minutes from the front door you are among the vineyards or in the garrigue with its intoxicating smell of wild rosemary, thyme and lavender.

Today, behind the original facades of this old winery, lie two fabulous contemporary homes. Unlived in for over 40 years the property has been transformed and lovingly renovated to a high standard. Being an Interior Designer , every detail has been considered, mixing old with new, and retaining original features to provide warm , spacious and light interiors.
Paguignan, which nestles in the foothills of the Montagne Noire and just 30km from the Mediterranean, was once a bustling community of wine growers with 2 cafes and 2 stores. It is now a quiet hamlet with winding alleyways , an ancient chapel, a small tree lined square ( ideal for a game of boule), a church and architectural evidence of more prosperous times. One family still produces wine in the village.
