About Vincent Keaveny

I live in Ireland with my wife and little boy. We both are hard working parents who love to spend time in France on holidays.

Our son who is six constantly talks about our house in France and when can we go back to it as he loves to swim in the pool and really enjoys our trips to the sandy beaches nearby.

Vincent Keaveny purchased this villa in 2007

Why Vincent Keaveny chose Durban-Corbières

A friend told us about this new development of fifteen exclusive villas being built and we flew down to Carcassonne and on to the location to view the works.

We fell in love with the area straight away. The magnificent scenery all around us, the beautiful weather and the easy access to everything you might need when on holidays sealed the deal for us.

Villa Tamaris is built on an old vineyard and has a 280 degree view all around the area with the rolling Corbier hills, and the lovely village of Durban and Castle ruins and vineyards everywhere.

Villa Tamaris is but a short drive from great Cities & Towns like Carcassonne, Narbonne and Sigean. The Mediterranean beaches at Narbonne and Leucate are again a short drive away. One of the best attractions for kids is the Safari park at Sigean about 30 minutes drive away. The circular medieval town of Gruissan is very beautiful with plenty of restaurants for lunch or dinner. More locally in the village of Portel is the fabulous restaurant La Berre perched on a cliff overlooking La Berre river.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Tamaris is a very relaxing place to be with little or no noise, totally private pool and deck/patio area. Only 5 minutes walk from the village you are in easy reach of shops, petrol, bank, doctor, restaurants and other amenities.

Villa Tamaris has a private 7mtr x3mtr x2mtr pool which can reach temperatures of up to 27c during the hot summers. A large wooden deck and sandstone patio area are ideal for sun bathing or just relaxing with a book. Wooden sun loungers with cushions are provided for your comfort.

A built in charcoal BBQ and outdoor eating area make make evening dining a treat. A side garden with Oliander, Lavender and Rosemary along with magnificent views complete an exclusive package. Indoors two well appointed bedrooms one double and one twin with private bathrooms and excellent wardrobe space await A large open plan living, dining area gives plenty of space for entertaining and the fully equipped kitchen offers the most budding chef all they need to prepare Mediterranean delights.
