About Magnus Hellblom

We, my wife and I purchased our house after having dreamt about a house in France for over 20 years. We have been renting houses in different regions of France but finally we settled for this lovely region. We have just both retired and share our time between Sweden and France but also do a lot of travelling around the world.

Magnus Hellblom purchased this villa in 2007

Why Magnus Hellblom chose Lezignan-Corbieres area

Since most of our neighbours are in the same position as we, longing for a secondary home, we think that this is the perfect choice.

Allmost all neighbours are English speaking people which makes our social life very interesting

The area is very nice. We still have all the sunshine but not the extreme temparuture which you can get near the coast. There is often a nice breeze during the hot days.

One of the benefits of the region is that you can in all villages find a small path around the village where you can walk and come very close the nature. We have all information in the house of how to find those walking paths.

There are many restaurants to explore in the area, which makes it rather nice to spend time here.

What makes this villa unique

The house is equipped to a very high standard so that what ever need you have, it shall be fulfilled. The pool makes a warm day complete.

Guestbook comments from the owner

- Really enjoyed staying in the house. It is beautifully decorated and contained everything we needed. Thanks again for providing such a nice house, it is probably the nicest we have stayed in anywhere in France. - Glenn Foster



- The villa has been like a piece of paradise. It is well equipped with everything you could possible think of to make you feel at home. It is well located for visiting places. The pool has been great, especially for keeping the children cool and entertained on days when the temperature exceeded 30 degrees. - The Gregory Family



- I loved the pool and I can now swim. - Lauren (aged 6 nearly 7)



- What a lovely house – so peaceful. Love the deck and pool with the beautiful views. Best sleeps for months and leaving on a high (literally) of 30 degree. - Olga, Marian + Siobhan

Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully modern and spacious villa with everything you need and more!

The villa is situated in a quiet location with stunning views. Lovely pool area which was used lots by everyone especially to cool down in the hot weather.

Lots of places to visit and we enjoyed days out at Carcassonne & Collioure.

Would highly recommend, you won't be disappointed ! We hope to return for our next holiday.

Scandinavian quality, in the heart of Corbieres

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5, looking for a base in the Aude/Corbieres area, and are glad that we found this villa. Very clean and modern, but comfortable, well appointed, and maintained. Magnus (the Owner) and the local ProertyManagers were helpful. Great pool ! Perfect base for exploring, the Cathar Castles (Queribus was our favourite), also Carcassonne

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week very much. Durban Corbieres is an interesting village with beautiful scenery and good access to beaches.

The property was spacious and comfortable. The swimming pool was very enjoyable in the sun, and the location was quiet. It was good to have the small supermarket and petrol station nearby.

There are plenty of restaurants close by, and the region is a great place to visit.

Lovely modern holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

The property had everything we needed. A lovely open-plan living room, with a separate TV room - perfect if you're travelling with children. Property was well maintained, and the owner was really helpful and welcoming. We were met by the couple who managed the property, who were also on call for any problems. We had a super holiday and would strongly recommend the property.
