About Stephen Meyler

We live in central London with two children - both now finished University. We spend holidays and long weekends at the house and each time we come to Montseret we think what a good decision it was to buy!

We are both working in London and whilst we enjoy London life we do look forward to escaping to Montseret in the SW of France.

Stephen Meyler purchased this villa in 2003

Why Stephen Meyler chose Montséret

We bought the house after a long search - we were looking for somewhere unique and special and we found it.

We wanted somewhere near, but not on, the coast; in a village but secluded; near a large town - Narbonne and with something truly unique - the views.

Access was important and with major airports at Toulouse, Montpelier and Girona all within easy reach. Carcassone and Perpignan are both under 45 minutes away.

Tennis is also important to us and we are members at the local tennis club in St. Andre - 3 km distance. Guests can pay €20 per week, for the house, to become temporary members.

What makes this villa unique

The views day and night!

The house is perched on top of a hill - one side overlooking the village and hills beyond - the other over vineyards with ever changing colours. By night the stars!

The air is clear and the aromas of pine needles and Mediterranean herbs make sure you don't forget were you are!

The surrounding countryside is a mixture of vineyards and rugged hills - known as the Garrigue - great for walking, cycling and exploring.

And the French are friendly......

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic fortnight! Age ranges 5-70. The house was perfect for us - always something for the children to do and always somewhere for the Grandparents to hide - highly recommend a game of 'Sardines' at dusk. Barnes - England - August 2014



Our family of 5 grown children are spread across the country so what a perfect place this was to bring them all together for a wonderful 60th Birthday. Adventures every day and then relax poolside. Newmarch - Canada - Aug 2014



Le Moulin (house, pool and outside areas) more than met our expectations we didn't want to leave! It's a great property for a large group with its spacious living accomodation, bedrooms and bathrooms. Power - London - August 2013.



Great holiday and ideal for our two young families - spent all the time by the pool - it has everything - Thompsons, Wokingham, 2010.

Distances:

The Villa is in the village of Montseret. It is 8Km to Abbaye de Fontfroide and 15Km to Lagrasse with its Abbayes. It is 8Km to the 3*Michelin Restaurant, Auberge de Vieux Puits, in Fontjoncuse.

Narbonne is 17Km distance with its superb indoor daily food market, its Cathedral and Restaurants.

Further Details:

There is a local shop in the village, a short walk from the house, that is a depot de pain.

There are two restaurants in the village - both great value. The local villages of Thezan and St. Andre are 3Km distance and both have shops, bakery and restaurant.

The village is home to a fascinating Millerie, honey farm - honey of all types - if you taste you will buy.

The Tennis Club is in St. Andre. There are too many top vineyards to mention - our favourite is Les Ollieux Romanis with fantastic wine tastings.

A few miles from the house is the famous Abbaye de Fontfroide - a former Cistercian abbey dating from around 1100 - has a good restaurant.

And the house is 5 miles from the 3* Michelin Restaurant Auberge du Vieux Puits - excellent food but not cheap.

Lovely property in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely spacious property with excellent facilities. Pool area with outside kitchen is ideal and was fully utilised. Well kept gardens with numerous seating areas and terraces to chase the sun or shade. Great village location with stunning views in all directions from its elevated position. House has everything required for a great family or group holiday - just add sun and wine. Village shop is useful and there is a wine 'cave' selling the agreeable local plonk at very good prices. Surrounded by vineyards and plenty of wine tasting opportunities at the producers' doorstep. Short drive to some lovely beaches, mountainous countryside and Narbonne. Only lacking a village tabac/bar for an afternoon 'biere pression'. Owner is helpful and easy to deal with as is the local key holder. Highly recommended.

Recommend Highly

  • 5 of 5

Photos and details on the website are very accurate but the house surpasses the photos. It is a great house for a couple, or even three, families. Lots of space and very well equipped.

Spent most of our time in and around the pool area and ate most of our meals there. Very good BBQ.

Took in some of the sights - Abbeys and Cathar Castles but preferred the great choice of restaurants - two in the village.

Would recommend to friends and family.
