About the property

Villa in Trausse-Minervois, Carcassonne, Aude, Languedoc, France - Pretty Village 30 Minutes From Historic Carcassonne. Close To Canal Du Midi And 1 Hour From Beaches.

Located in the wonderful Minervois wine region of the Languedoc Roussillon, Villa des Rosiers offers superior, comfortable holiday accommodation for 6 adults. Exclusive to the villa is the large 10mx5m private pool, garden and sun terrace. Dramatic, medieval Carcassonne is an easy half-hour drive away and the delightful Canal du Midi meanders through the local countryside. Surrounded by rustic villages, excellent restaurants, wine Chateaux, Cathar Castles, mountain walks, cycle routes and leisure lakes the villa is the ideal base from which to explore and enjoy this unspoilt region of the South of France. Or, if you just want to relax and unwind, the property offers a perfect blend of privacy and comfort in a idyllic, peaceful setting. With the village shop just a few paces away the croissants, fresh baguettes and local wines are, quite literally, on your doorstep.

About The Owner

Villa des Rosiers is owned by Shaun and Liz McLoughlin who live in Domaine les Figuiers - a typical 'Maison de Maitre' style house which is situated next door to the villa and has its own separate garden.

Shaun & Liz moved permanently to France at the beginning of 2008 and since their arrival have completely renovated and refurbished the holiday home. Villa des Rosiers opened its doors to visitors for the first time early in 2009.

Shaun & Liz will greet you when you arrive and are readily on-hand to assist and advise you during your stay to ensure that you enjoy your holiday to the full.

Perfect for family holiday

  • 5 of 5

An amazing property set in a quiet French village ideal for exploring this wonderful area. Fantastic vineyards, delicious food and perfect gite - what more could you wish for.

The gite is renovated to a high standard and has everything you need to make your holiday.

The pool was a real treat and exceeded all expectations. It is set in its own secluded and private garden.

Hosts couldn't be more accommodating and helped to make this a holiday to remember. Thank you.

Highly recommended

Stunning house!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property in a lovely village, very carefully restored with everything you could want for a wonderful holiday.

The pool is stunning set in a beautiful, secluded garden. Lots of places to visit within the surrounding area, we particularly enjoyed the villages up in the hill.

Liz and Steve are the perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome. Thoroughly recommended for a relaxing holiday.
