A house of great character set in a secluded rural paradise. Fontbertiere is a 17th century wine making property surrounded by hills of vineyards, pine-trees, olive trees and dry stonewalls.
A small stream runs through the grounds passing the beautiful front lawn, the many fruit trees, the vegetable garden, wooded areas and vineyards.
2 km away is Siran, an enchanting village with a food shop, bakery, two restaurants, a bar and two churches including one that dates back to the 8th century. A short drive will take you to the medieval city of Carcassonne or Minerve.
Within ten minutes drive there are delightful places to swim and sunbathe such as the lake of Jouarres or nearby rivers. Surrounding villages also offer wine-tasting, summer dances and festivals and cafes with outdoor seating.
A picturesque driveway provides ample parking under the trees. On the other side of the front lawn are barbecue, outdoor dining facilities and the main entrance which leads to a large airy conservatory. Through the glazed doors there is the large formal dining area with its fabulous fireplace and antiques which date as far back as the 16th century.

Beautiful,unique, tranquil property
Beautiful,unique, tranquil property
I stayed here for a month with my then son who was 5 and our dog who loved playing in the large gardens.It was a lovely get away from it all and the village 3 mins drive down the road has everything you need including a mobile pizza van every friday i think, one of the best pizzas i have ever tasted! There is a lovely lake with sports facilities 10 mins drive away and beautiful Narbonne 15 mins and its gorgeous clean vast sandy beach 20 mins away. The oldie world property itself is situated down a small private lane surrounded by vineyards some of their own homemade wine which we helped to make. The owner is a lovely lady and very generous if you need anything. I will definately visit again oneday it is my favourite part of france.The only downside is you do need a car as there are no transport links out there otherwise i would have rated it an excellent.

About the owner: I like meeting people from other places, other countries and it is a good opportunity with renting my vacation home. That home is large and I stay in a part of it. In another part live my two friens so when I am not there, the house is not alone !
Why the Owner Chose Carcassonne:
I did not buy this vacation rental, I got it from my father. He was not from that area of France, he was from Paris and the house and its surroundings are so different and so beautiful !
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The place is very calm, the next village is 2,5 km away and the road with very few cars at the end of our path. The house is in a small valley and with its creek, the lawn and the big trees, you feel very confortable.
