About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths; sleeps 8 adults plus 2 kids)
Your residence was an old stone barn. The ground level is a large garage with plenty of indoor parking. The upstairs living quarters offer a spacious great room with a huge fireplace and a dining area, four bedrooms (one completely recreated with a new in-suite bathroom and French doors to the large terrace and two of which are lofts, one which opens to the private upper terrace), a full bath plus a separate water closet and a new tiled shower/sink, and a laundry room with washer/dryer/ironing board on the mezzanine level. A completely new, modern kitchen was installed in the fall of 2015. Two terraces overlook the vineyards and foothills in the distance. (There is no phone but there is wi-fi access throughout the house as well as good cell phone coverage.)
The house is a few steps away from the town center of Armissan with its ancient church. The butcher and the baker are just out the front gate. Narbonne is 15 minutes away with an historic Gothic cathedral, a Roman road, excellent shops and one of the best markets in France (open every day of the year from 7 until just after noon) featuring fresh seafood, meats, cheese and produce. There are many fine restaurants in Narbonne and within easy driving distance from Armissan.
Accommodations consist of four French (that is, small double beds), one each in the bedroom by the main bath, the new master bedroom suite off the main terrace and in the loft bedrooms one of which also has two twin beds. The house is not handicapped accessible because of stairs to the living quarters and stairs to the sleeping lofts. It's not fancy but we think it's wonderful!
We placed the house in charity auctions for about ten years and had numerous repeat visitors. One family will return this year for the second time, another for their third! You can stay busy every day visiting historical points of interest or relax in the serenity of the village. Some of the best vineyards in the Languedoc are minutes away. Life at 18 rue du Terrain des Sports is not like life in a French village. It IS life in a French village!

About the owner: My family and I love France. My son attended the American University of Paris and my daughter participated in a student exchange program in Paris. She and her husband spent their honeymoon in Armissan and we look forward to visiting this special place every year.
Why the Owner Chose Armissan, France:
Armissan is in the sunniest region of France, near the Mediterranean and in the heart of Cathar country. You can stay busy every day visiting historical sites and fine restaurants or simply relax in an extraordinarily peaceful setting. The village feels remote but is less than 5-10 minutes from the A9 toll road which runs from Spain on the west to Italy on the east.
