Maury house description

A quiet getaway house on four floors with a terrace overlooking the village with incredible mountain views. A perfect spot for painters, writers, and lovers. Ideal for a two-family vacation. If you tire of our quiet village, it is only a 20-minute drive to the ancient Catalan capital of Perpignan, which we regard as a mini-Barcelona. There are dozens of wineries within a ten minute drive---several within walking distance--- that are happy to have visitors. Taste the wines and you will see why Languedoc-Roussillon is the hottest trend in French wines. There is a fully-equipped kitchen so you can shop at the local market and release your inner French chef. There are also three cafe/restaurants in the village. And castles! Did I mention the castles? Many date back to the 12th century and it seems there is one on every mountain top around. When you get tired of sightseeing, there is river rafting, hiking and biking. Or, you can laze away the date on the terrace, reading a novel or maybe write your own.

              Maury is an ancient wine village in the valley of the Algy River. It is close enough to Perpignan to satisfy any desires for good restaurants, shopping and hanging out at sidewalk cafes. There is also an exciting live music scene with a fusion of jazz, flamenco and gypsy music. But the village setting is peaceful, serene. You can hike or bike for miles through nearby vineyards or trails, raft or swim in mountain streams, explore Cathar castles or just kick back on the terrace with a glass of local wine and a plate of cheese.

              Enjoy!
