About Johanna & Craig Heritage
We moved to the Ariege with our two sons in 2003 falling in love with the natural beauty and the simplistic life style, allowing us to give our children the same freedom to grow up in as we ourselves were priviledged to have and started a small bike hire business because of our love of mountain bike cycling and the proximity of Lac du Montbel not realising that we would also benefit hugely from the closeness of the ski resort of Monts d’Olmes and the incredible uncluttered and well maintained roads for road cycling and touring.
Johanna & Craig Heritage purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Johanna & Craig Heritage chose Léran
Having already restored 3 stone built houses in Leran we realised our dream by buying the land for Maison Olive and building our own 'grand design' from scratch of which we are immensely proud.
What makes this Villa unique
Maison Olive is perfectly situated in Leran as a base for easy entertainment or relaxing tranquillity. Offering everything from Cathar and medieval culture, ancient churches, historic towns, gourmet cuisine and wine tasting, through to the more energetic, freshwater swimming lake, hiking, cycling, riding, International go-karting, paintballing, white water rafting, golfing and acro-branch we have every taste catered for.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN
Rented for 3 weeks, used the home as a base to explore southern France. Clean, spacious, and very quiet; the home is built in three segments with doors in-between that make the bedroom areas completely silent. Beds are very comfortable, kitchen well equipped for cooking gourmet; felt like home.
We walked down to the village most mornings for croissants, having breakfast on the back deck in the morning sun; then drinks watching the sun go down on the front deck…a little piece of heaven to yourselves. The local restaurant, Le Rendez-vous, a hidden gem.
Johanna, Craig and family are extremely friendly, helpful and kind.
Within an hour’s drive there are many wonderful sites to see, a subterranean river 1.5 klms long, a bit further and you are at the Mediterranean. Drove to Bordeaux and stayed one night, visited the The Great Dune of Pilat - amazing.
Whether you are two, four or eight people, everyone has ample space to relax. The backyard is very large, would allow children to play ball, tag, badminton, etc.
A great place for a holiday!
clean spacious property, beautiful views
This was a great, clean.spacious property, perfect for our party of 8. Plenty of room for our 4 adults and 4 teenagers to relax. External seating areas that provided sun or shade at all times of the day. Private, with beautiful views over to the Pyrenees yet with easy walking down the lane to the village to the Café/ restaurant and the Friday Night Market - Great fun. Swimming in the Lake was beautiful and safe having a designated swimming area. Would happily go back and would recommend this property.
Fantastic, French, Family Fun.........
Great place to switch off and enjoy some family time. Swimming and playing at Lac Montbel, pony trekking and cycling through stunning scenery (for every uphill there is a wonderful downhill!) and letting the teenagers burn around the go-kart track.
House is tranquil with loads of space and super kitchen to cook up 'magri de canard' accompanied by a dash of local vino. Alternatively pop down to Le Rendez-vous where Marek and Shirley will cook an excellent supper.
Clean and spacious the house absorbs people and you can simply chill, though don't miss the Friday market and the chance to chat to all the locals.
Our party of 7 adults and teenagers had a fab time.
