Living room

The living and dining spaces in the house occupy more than 80m² of the ground floor.
The main room is open plan with kitchen, dining table and entertainment combined yet sufficiently separate.
Comfortable, large, leather sofa and chairs allow guests to relax in front of the smart TV. Overhead speakers and a Sonos music system provide the perfect opportunity for an evening of relaxtion.
A French billiards table is centred in the room. With no pockets and only three balls, the aim is to hit the other two balls with one of the white cue balls.
There is a lovely new woodburner for cooler evenings.

Outside

The 8m x 4m pool has stunning views while underwater lights provide for an atmospheric night-time dip.
It is fenced and gated but not sufficient to meet regulations so for safety a pool alarm is installed. The pool is heated only by the sun but does have a pool cover that can be used at night to retain heat..

Guest reviews

Summer 2018
Wir kommen seit 25 Jahren im diese Gegund und haben schon viele Häuser gemietet aber diese ist mit eines der schönsten.
We have been coming to this area for 25 years and have already rented many houses but this is one of the nicest.

Summer 2018
We spent two wonderful weeks here and visted lots of beautiful places in the region. Sous les Mûriers is a very cozy house, decorated with good taste and well equipped!

Summer 2018
We had a wonderful, restful holiday at Sous les Mûriers. The house is very well equipped with everything you need and an interesting decor. It also has beautiful views of the hills that you can wander around. There is lots to do with the children including lavender picking and canoeing.

Location

The house is situated on the edge of a small hamlet not far from the town of Félines-Minervois.

The airport at Carcassonne (Ryanair) is about 40 minutes by car. Beziers (also Ryanair) is 1hr 15 minutes. Toulouse (BA, Easyjet and Ryanair) is 1hr 40 minutes.

To drive from the UK is also possible but would require an overnight stay en route.
