About the property

Large Villa in Ginoles, Quillan, Aude, Languedoc-Roussillon, Fance Tranquil Location In The Heart Of Cathar Country

Villa de Fleur is in a semi secluded location on the hill just below the village of Ginoles. It is close to Quillan, around 3 Km away, Carcassonne 55 Km, the beach at Narbonne 71 Km, only 100 Km from Andorra, and 270 Km from Barcelona. There are shops and bars and restaurants in the village and also in nearby Quillan. The Villa is an ideal place to get away from it all. It’s location also makes it the perfect base for outdoor activities or cultural holiday. There are 2000 Km of well maintained walking/hiking paths to explore, and take in the magnificent mountain scenery, either by foot, horse, cycling, and even mountain climbing and caving. There are rivers and lakes that provide fishing, canoeing, kayaking and white water rafting. Or if you prefer a more relaxed holiday, there are Museums and Historical Cathar Castles to visit, along with numerous festivals and events, or just pamper your self at Rennes-les-Bains, or one of the other many nearby spas.

Nestled in the hillside just above the small but quaint town of Quillan, and just below the sleepy village of Ginoles, this beautiful well appointed villa, provides the perfect holiday home to explore the stunningly beautiful Aude Valley and the Languedoc-Roussillon region.

The Villa comprises of:

Downstairs: 3 double bedrooms and a bedroom with a bunk bed and two open plan lounges, 2 bathrooms/showers, two kitchen/dining areas, several patio areas, the main of which leads onto a large private swimming pool. (the pool is open from end of March until November).

An upstairs master bedroom (available as an optional extra £105 per week): A very spacious upstairs double bedroom with en suite bathroom, en suite toilet, a large double bed, a walk-in wardrobe and a south-facing balcony providing unparalleled views of the mountains!

The villa itself is set within one acre of grounds, and provides magnificent mountain views all round. There is a small fruit private orchard, located within the grounds containing apple, pear and cherry trees from which you are more than welcome to help yourself, as well as a large lawn area allowing for ball games and other fun activities.

About N. Cartwright

We are a 50 something professional business couple, who while travelling through France, discovered this exceptionally beautiful place and fell in love with it immediately. For me it was the views and the location, and having spent some time in the RAF mountain rescue, I looked forward to exploring the caves and walking in the mountains. For my wife it was the nearby beaches, and the proximity to Spain. We purchased the land in 2000, and started building in the summer of 2009 with the eventual plan of retiring here. Unfortunately the pressures of work mean that we are not able to get away as often as we would like. So until we can go more regularly, we would like to share our house and this wonderful part of France with you.

N. Cartwright purchased this villa in 2000
