About Carol

Carol and Jamie Carstairs are a French and British couple, and also Australian citizens. Carol is an artist, and Jamie works in energy. We both know the area well and will be happy to guide you.

Carol purchased this house in 2007

Why Carol chose Villeneuve-Minervois

The property is based in the heart of a beautiful village. It is located at the foot of the Montagne Noire, but also close to the Canal du Midi. The village is off the main road, making it pleasantly quiet. However it has great amenities - three restaurants, a cafe, a village shop, bakery and butcher. It also has a very active life which is easily accessible to visitors. There are frequent large dinners in different corners of the village, music and other performances, and truffle markets during the season.

What makes this house unique

Although we are located in a village, the house is in a quiet corner and has a large and secluded garden, giving the best of both worlds. We have installed a 12 meter pool. The pool and garden has lovely views of the church, next to the 12th century castle. At the back of the pool is a mediaeval wall, the former village boundary.
