Two Gites with Gardens and 10x5m salt water heated pool



Updated: 17-Oct-2016
Ground and first floor gites suitable for large groups or two families.

In a tranquille village, this well modernised Maison de Maitre offers two lovely modern gites: ground floor two bedroom ensuite leading directly to garden and pool; first floor three bedroom ensuites, two showers one bathroom, separate entrance and roof terrace. A fully fitted kitchen sitting-room with dining area, and a south facing sun terrace with wonderful views over the Cazedarnes valley and hills.

The property has a 10 x 5m heated salt water swimming pool and landscaped garden: with many trees and shrubs and plenty of room for sunbathing by the pool. There is a small building "Meg's Folly!" where you can sit in the shade, take a glass of chilled wine from the fridge or make yourself a cup of tea or coffee.

Wine and food lovers will be pleased to hear that we are minutes away from St Chinian with its 20 villages making up the Appelation. The beautiful river Orb is also nearby offering swimming and kayaking. There are lovely walking or biking trails. Narbonne is 40 minutes away with wonderful walks along the Canal du Midi. The Med is 40 mins drive offering miles of sandy beaches. The Languedoc region awaits!

About the Owner

We have now been living in this beautiful part of France for 14 years. Our backgrounds are very varied, from army life to a development in Menorca, starting an architectural newspaper, running a restaurant and clock restoration with an antique shop. Tennis and Petanque players.

We love meeting new clients and returning ones who have become friends.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

Les Hirondelles is a magical place, not least because of Meg and Sim who are the world’s best and most welcoming hosts. When we were not sunbathing and swimming in the French sunshine, we were out walking in the mountains and woods, picnicking by a stream amongst a mass of spring flowers and surround-sound birdsong. And when we weren’t doing that, we were being thoroughly entertained by Meg and Sim in their glorious garden with a glass or two (or more!) of local wine. Add in the gorgeous Maddie and her two visiting catty friends, and we were in heaven. If we didn’t love our homeland Cornwall so much, we’d move in permanently.

From the Owner

We fell in love with the views, the southerly aspect and most of all, the house. Cazedarnes is a growing village but still very much for the Vignerons (winemakers). We are surrounded by beautiful scenery and wonderful walks. Still having the easy access to villages and towns, Canal du Midi and the sea and 5 airports.
