About the property


One of two Villas Set in an idyllic position on the edge of the enchanting village of Embres et Castelmaure and surrounded by sun drenched limestone hills, lush vineyards and aromatic pines. Villas Grenache and Syrah are built in the same style and next door to each other, but in entirely their own plots, with their own pools, gardens and terraces. Built in an upside down fashion to make the most of the breathtaking views across the Corbières mountains to provide light and airy family living space on the first floor and cool bedrooms on the ground floor - very welcome in the height of the summer. If like us you enjoy a rural French ambiance, where the pace of life is slow and uncomplicated, yet if you want your holiday home to offer you the modern luxuries to help make your stay relaxing and comfortable our villas are the place for you! Close to lovely Mediterranean beaches, and the pretty town of Durban with shops and amenities, the surrounding area is rich in Cathar history, medieval castles, ancient monasteries and beautiful landscapes to drive, walk or cycle through. Autoroute 30 mins & Airports approx 50 minutes away.

About Debbie Moore

We live and work in the South East of England and have two teenage children. We have spent many enjoyable holidays in France, gradually exploring further south in search of endless sunny days!

Debbie Moore purchased this villa in 2010

Why Debbie Moore chose Narbonne area

We stumbled across the Corbieres/Languedoc region 8 years ago and finally took the plunge to develop our own house in 2010/11. We love visiting the beach but are not so keen on 'resorts' so looked for a site about 30 minutes inland to experience more rural France. We think our position is perfect, you really do get a chance to relax and unwind....and when ready there is so much to do within easy reach.

What makes this villa unique

We have tried to think of everything to make the house as comfortable as possible. Feel free to contact us if you want to know more about the house and locality.

A bright airy modern well equipped villa with a great pool and wonderful mountain views. Peaceful location away from the crowds but within easy reach of the coast and other attractions. Some great local restaurants too. Highly recommended

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We all had a very nice time at the villa.

The villa was beautifully presented, light and airy and everything you would need for your holiday was provided. The pool was a blessing on the very hot days. The village is very quaint and the wine cave is worth a visit .We had the pleasure to be there when they had a Tapas evening and it felt like the whole village was there. The area is very wild and rugged but only a short drive through some beautiful scenery to the coast and other interesting villages. A great villa in a beautiful unspoiled part of France

Super Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday at Villa Syrah. The villa was spacious and extremely well equipped - everything we needed was there! The pool was very welcome in the heat of the day and the surrounding countryside was beautiful - very peaceful. There was plenty to do in the area - some lovely restaurants to try, towns to explore and only about half an hour to the coast. All in all a great place to stay!
