Grand Rue is located within the ramparts in the heart of Olonzac, capital of the Minervois, France's famous southern wine region.
Maison en Pierre was probably built in the 11th century but updated structurally and renovated. Our immaculate self catering vacation home is on three-stories and right in the center of town. The area is very private and quiet. Just step outside your door and on a Tuesday, you are in the middle of the weekly market. The pool was added in May 2012.
Olonzac, just a 30-40 minute drive from Carcassonne, is the capital of the Minervois with 6 restaurants (2 within 20 yards), cafes, bars, patisseries, boulangeries, delicatessens, tabac, post office and professional services such as 2 doctors, dentist, banks and much more. A market is held every Tuesday morning right outside the house. There is also a park with children's playing equipment and 3 tennis courts. A magnificent lake, Lac de Jouarres, is only a few minutes away. Here you can fish, sunbathe, swim, windsurf, picnic or sail. There is also a great restaurant and café overlooking the water.
Olonzac is surrounded by hundreds of vineyards with tasting facilities, in fact, 3 are within walking distance. The hills and mountains of the Black Mountains, leading to the Parque Languedoc, are a short distance to the north and are great for walking. For beach lovers, the seashore of Narbonne-Plage and Gruissan are only 35 kilometres away.
Spain and the Pyrenees are approximately an hour away. Fetes, festivals and markets occur all year round throughout many of the surrounding villages. In winter, skiing is available within a 1 hour drive in France or 2 hour drive in Andorra.
