Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: My husband and I live in Manhattan and are long-time francophiles. We were lucky enough to find this magical village during a visit to France twenty years ago with close French friends whose family have a house in the village also. When we are there, we love to visit local wineries which remind us of Napa 30 years ago. We shop each day at the local markets, swim and kayak in the Orb, browse the antique markets in Pezenas and enjoy the seafood restaurants in Meze. We often visit Caussi by flying into Barcelona, one of our favorite cities in Europe! Our two daughters love going to the beach and the castles.

Why the Owner Chose Caussiniojouls, France:
We fell in love with this extraordinary village for natural beauty of its location tucked up against the Languedoc mountains, the vistas across the vineyards. The village is warm and welcoming with a Wednesday night summer festival of 'moules and boules' that welcomes everyone. There's so much to do here as well! From hiking in the mountains to swimming in a variety of wonderful spots on the Mediterranean to visiting castles and Roman ruins, Languedoc is really special. And all the more so because it is so authentic with none of the tourists and tourist buses so prevalent in Provence.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our house is super comfortable with beautiful light. We love our secret garden covered with vines for tea and, most gloriously, hang out for breakfast and dinner on the rooftop terrace. We've furnished the house with an eclectic mix of comfortable furniture and antiques discovered in local shops. It is unique to be so close to swimming, mountains, rivers, castles, and cities as big as Montpellier and Barcelona (2 hours).
