Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-10)

Maison des Oliviers is a beautifully renovated 17th Century stone house. This home is well appointed with period antiques, art, carpets and comfort. Elegant but at the same time casual. It features two sun terraces, a first floor master suite, full kitchen with dishwasher, formal dining room, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, bbq grill, washer and dryer, 4 bedrooms upstairs with bath and much more. It is located in the small and idyllic hilltop village of Caramany (pop 150) with views of the historic 12th Century Chateau, lake and the glorious Pyrenees. Caramany has it's own wine Cave, restaurant and fresh bread and croissants delivered daily. The village is also a short walk to lake and river swimming. The Mediterranean beaches with fabulous restaurants, Cathar castles, wine touring and Perpignan airport are all but a few minutes away.

Maison des Oliviers is ideal for those looking to relax and unwind. It's a wonderful home base for lots of activities in the area like hiking, biking, horseback riding, lake and river swimming, cave and waterfall exploring to name but a few.

But most of all, sit back and enjoy the beautiful view from the terrace with your friends, family, (lover...) and of course a glass of amazing Caramany wine!

About Joseph Lorino

We are film directors and producers from New York City. We are enchanted with the Roussillon. You will be too!

Joseph Lorino purchased this house in 2004

Why Joseph Lorino chose Caramany

On my first trip to Europe, during my freshman year of college, I drove through the area. I swooned.

What makes this house unique

The ravishing landscape is what we yearn for when we're in NYC on a crazy day. And the food, wine and people never let you down.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had the most wonderful time in Caramany. The children so enjoyed the lake and we loved sitting on the terraces sipping wine and watching the swallows come home to the village at sunset. This is a beautiful, beautiful place. We loved it, you will too.

Views over Caramany

  • 4 of 5

An absolutely lovely place and we had a wonderful stay - the only thing is that they really need to fix the stairs going up to the bedrooms upstairs as they are in bad shape - but the terrace was wonderful, the views were incredible and the town was so charming - especially the bread truck every morning for our fresh pain au chocolat!

Note that there is no cancellation policy: request for book means it's booked with no refund.

Amazingly beautiful views in this peaceful sleepy village nestled in the Pyrenees

  • 4 of 5

A charming property where you can retreat and get away form the busy day to day. We enjoyed the slower pace of life, getting up in time for the bread van and exploring the local area. Days out to Carcassone, Perpignon and Barcelona with breathtaking views along the way. Lazy evenings watching stunning sunsets from the terrace. The house was well equipped and comfortable - a home away from home - a great base.

The views, hospitality and food in Caramany's Auberge were super.

Good local wines to compliment the Catalan cuisine.

Property exactly as described.

Photos are very representative.

I had very detailed information from the hosts regarding our arrival and stay which was very helpful.

Caramany is a beautiful village with lovely scenic roads leading to it, making driving fun!

Would recommend this Property, and would happily stay there again.

One of my most memorable

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house and area. We had the most special stay for our group birthday. The house is so wonderful and the views. We were 10 people and the house accommodated us wonderfully. The area is so special. Food, wine and people are some of the best I've had. Can't wait to return. Chris and Joseph were so helpful.

Wonderful home in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home in beautiful location. People in the town so friendly. Lots of places to visit in the area - Cathar castles, vineyards, lakes and waterfalls. Not too far from many Mediterranean beaches. Very comfortable home with all we could possibly need for family and friend get togethers.

Magnificent French Oasis - spectacular stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and a group of friends had a fantastic time at Maison des Olivers last August. What a special home and special area. I am a professional chef so the fully fitted kitchen was a delight to work in. Local fresh produce in season is sold in the village (as well as freshly baked bread and croissants!). The house is beautiful, full of light and graciously decorated. The beds and linens are of the best quality. The village boasts a gourmet restaurant and the Caramany cooperative vineyard. These vineyards produce some of the best selling wines in France from the Languedoc/Rousillion (they are incredible, especially the reds). There is a gorgeous lake only a short walk away (you can see it from the house as well as the 13th century chateau and church) that is warm and luscious and also lots of river swimming areas nearby. We drove 30 minutes to Canet Plage to try out the Cote du Rousillion beaches. They rival the French Riviera and the fish there was AMAZING. Go to Caramany and stay at Maison des Olivers. We had the time of our lives.
