"A tranquil serene little haven ... comfort, calm and so restful."

Absolutely fantastic holiday - the swimming pool was amazing and the hospitality was way beyond anything we could have hoped for."

Calme et beauté du site

  • 4 of 5

L'endroit est en hauteur, dans les collines, avec une très jolie vue sur la nature. C'est très calme et apaisant.

Le gîte est très bien équipé, très bien meublé et confortable. Le seul bémol est que la télé n'est qu'en langue anglaise :-) Mais, comme il a fait très beau cette année, pas besoin de regarder la télé, nous étions la majeure partie du temps à l'extérieur.

A notre arrivée, la propriétaire nous avait préparé une délicieuse tarte aux légumes que nos ados ont adorée. Elle avait également mis à notre disposition 2 bouteilles de vin de la propriété, de la confiture et des légumes frais du potager.

La piscine est très grande et sans chlore, ce qui est très agréable.

Nous recommandons vivement ce gîte aux familles et amoureux de la nature et du vin.

From the Owner

Both Patrick and I love this part of France for its diversity in landscape, wine, food and importantly its people. We have a passion for wine and in 2005 finally fulfilled a lifetime dream of becoming a wine producer with the purchase of Combebelle in AOC Saint Chinian. We have exceptional terroir and amazing views of the sea and mountains. We love sharing Combebelle with friends and family as well as visitors to the property. We have been running our gite (a home from home) since 2007 and have had many repeat guests coming to stay over the years.

From the Owner

Combebelle is a tranquil haven in the heart of the Languedoc region in the South of France. Our domain is farmed organically which means we have an abundance of flora & fauna - an ideal place for bird watching! We offer a relaxed environment for guests who can spend part of the day exploring the local area and come back to chill off by our large 15x6m pool with views of the sea and mountains. Combebelle offers a "home from home" experience. Guests have plenty of space to wander around and relax as well as the option to see (and in some cases participate) in what we do on the vineyard, particularly during harvest! We look forward to meeting new visitors as well as returning guests.
