Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 1/2

The apartment 'les trois fenêtres', originally an old stone barn, has been converted to the highest standards and offers a stunning, large south facing terrace, giving views over the local vineyards, river Alsou (with it's own natural rock pool for swimming) and the Corbieres mountains. There is a beautiful slate floor throughout, with underfloor heating and two sets of French doors leading out to the large private terrace. The bedroom has French doors out to the terrace and the river, with an adjoining bathroom finished in Italian marble, together with a bath and walk-in shower. The kitchen is fitted with all modern appliances including a dishwasher. The whole apartment is extremely well appointed, with both north and south facing views of the surrounding mountains. There are period pieces of French furniture, together with high ceilings and original beams. There is a bibliotek (full of useful information on the area), satellite television, stereo system with cd's and washing/ironing facilitiies.

Complementary therapies: 'les trois fenetres' comes with it's own holistic therapist, specialising in reflexology, aromatherapy, remedial massage, Indian head massage and pre/post operative care. Therapeutic and relaxing treatments, create your own week of relaxing and healing treatments alone or with a friend. The holistic therapist is qualified with a diploma in holistic and sports therapies from the International Institute of Health and Holistic Therapies.

Rural location: 'les trois fenetres' is situated in the foothills of the Corbieres, facing south, towards the Pyrenees. The area is littered with small roads and pathways, enabling you to explore wild flowers (amazing orchids), wild birds, including birds of prey (a Kingfisher lives on the river) and many varied butterflies (the Swallowtail being quite common here). There are two local lakes for swimming (in addition to the rock pool) and another deep rock pool, close to the source of the river Alsou. Many mountain walks are available for walking or for use with mountain bikes. The area is stunning and a suitable base for artists, many of which live here. Paintings of local views are available from these artists by appointment.

Local attractions: In addition to the Cathar castles, there are thermal spa's, monasteries, museums, animal/bird sanctuaries, deep cave grotto's and much more. Nearby Carcassonne (the guardian of southern France) and the Canal du Midi (which runs from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic) are both world heritage sites. Wine buffs will enjoy tasting their way around all the local vineyards. The famous 'Blanquette' is produced not far away in Limoux. For classic car lovers, 'les trois fenetres' have it's own collection of classic vehicles. Lagrasse, one of the most beautiful medieval villages of France is nearby, with an abbey, founded in the 8th century. To see all these attractions, a car is required but we offer airport/station transfer from Carcassonne if required.

Naturist sunbathing is possible on the large south-facing terrace

Tony and Volodya have been the perfect hosts. Such friendly, nice people who go out of their way to ensure everything is as it should be. Apartment in a beautiful, peaceful valley with stunning scenery. So tranquil we felt at home within minutes of arriving and it stayed that way. Lovely welcome pack with a few essentials and a few luxuries - perfect. Comfortable bed in good sized room. Good sized bathroom and great living area. Best terrace to enjoy the sun but with areas of shade as well. Several other areas around the property to share and relax in. You've created a lovely retreat guys - one we enjoyed very much. Thank you.

'les trois fenêtres' is situated in the beautiful Val de Dagne, southeast from Carcassone and close to the medieval village of Lagrasse. The apartment sits between the villages of Taurize and Servies en Val in the foothills of the Corbieres mountains. The local village has an epicerie, tabac, boulangerie, hairdressers, post office and a wine cellar. Local produce is in abundance, including fresh eggs, goat's/sheep's cheese, olives, pate, honey, yoghurt, spice bread, organic fruit/vegetables etc., available from local markets or farms. There is a superb horse riding school close by offering country trekking and mountain bikes can be hired locally. A climb from nearby Labastide gives you stunning views of the Pyrenees, whilst the Mediterranean is only fifty minutes away. There are numerous 'cathar' castles in the area, including Peyrepertuse and Queribus. 'les trois fenetres' offers you an excellent base from which to explore one of the hidden treasures of southern France, the Corbieres.
