La maison du mūrier

Quality village house in friendly wine village in Languedoc Roussillon, South of France

The House

La maison du mūrier is a typical, completely renovated, French village house, which is tucked away in the heart of a delightfully friendly village. The house gets its name from the tree which provides welcome shade to the south facing sunny terrace. The house enjoys complete privacy yet to enjoy the intriguing sight of the French collecting fresh produce each morning from the shop which is directly across from our house is to step back in time. Step back to a time of life at a leisurely pace with time for courtesy and a leisurely chat. 

The spacious accommodation is on two floors and is laid out as follows:
