This townhouse in Languedoc has been recently restored to the height of elegance. Originally built in 1882, its new design is all refinement, paying tribute to the past with chandeliers and statuary – très français! Just outside the back door is a cool blue saltwater swimming pool, and mature gardens beyond. You can cook outside in the summer kitchen (with its own gas hob) for a casual meal, or gather in the dining room for a black-and-white affair.
A large group won’t feel cramped in this home, which extends across three levels (the second level has its own lounge). Four of the seven bedrooms have the added privacy of ultramodern en suite bathrooms. Juliet balconies on the second floor lend even more elegance to an already impeccable interior.
You can walk to the town of Lamalou, just a 10 minute amble away. Thermal baths have operated here since the 13th century, so it’s a beautifully relaxing holiday no matter the time of year. Situated midway between Carcassonne and Montpellier, this holiday home has access to the best of the Languedoc-Roussillon wine region – head slightly toward the coast, and you’ll have dozens of winemakers’ wares to sample.
The house is beautifully decorated in a French style, and really feels like a home from home for all visitors.
Enter the large hall that gives access through high French doors to the salon and dining room. The 50 sqm lounge has doors opening onto the rear south facing terrace, so you’ll get plenty of sun and light.
The kitchen is fully equipped with electric oven, ceramic hob and extractor, fridge/freezer and drinks fridge. The laundry room has washer/dryer and separate sink.
On this floor are three good sized double bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities, and a family bathroom. Each bedroom has its own unique style! The beds have top quality linens, mattresses and covers, and are all doubles.
Here you’ll find four double bedrooms, two of which are en-suite, and a family bathroom. There is also a central lounge area, making this floor ideal for a family who want to stay together and have their own private space. The beds have top quality linens, mattresses and covers, and are doubles, except for one bedroom which has two singles.
The salt water pool is heated June to September only (if required). The 9m x 4m pool is protected by a security cover. There are a number of different seating and eating areas in the garden, and the summer kitchen/bar has a gas BBQ and a separate gas hob.
