About Karen Jungjohann
We are a family of four who live in Toronto where our children attended French Immersion. Their knowledge of French and our love of the French cuisine, wine, and unspoiled countryside inspired us to look for opportunities to travel in France. We were introduce to the Languedoc-Roussilon region in 2010 by an old friend in the wine business. We found the area to be the perfect combination of cuisine, culture, outdoor activity, and opportunities to explore and relax, so we fulfilled the dream of owning a property in France and are thrilled to be able to share it and this wonderful region with our guests.
Karen Jungjohann purchased this House in 2014
Why Karen Jungjohann chose Roquebrun
After renting vacation properties in Roquebrun for six years, we decided that we wanted to have our very own piece of the town. This stone house is the perfect opportunity for us to create an property that has an ideal combination of historical features and modern amenities - just like the town in which it is situated.
What makes this House unique
From the classic features of the stone walls and wood beams, to the modern kitchen and baths, this house has the perfect combination of old and new to create a wonderfully comfortable experience for guests.

Fantastic experience in Southern France. The residence could not have been better. Clean, comfortable and very well appointed. It was like being home.
We are thrilled that you enjoyed your time at Maison de Farine so much and hope to have you back again as guests. Cheers!
Absolutely Heavenly, would most definitely recommend

A wonderful base to explore this pretty region with family and friends
Your kind words are much appreciated! We are thrilled that your stay at Maison de Farine was so enjoyable and hope to have you back again one day!
Perfect family oasis
Our week at Maison de Farine was the perfect respite in the middle of a busy 3 week tour of France and Italy. We didn't know anything about Langudoc before our trip but we loved learning about the region and it's heritage. We did day trips to Beziers, Carcassonne, and one (very long) day trip to Barcelona. Roquebrun itself is a great spot: so picturesque in the hillside, with just enough amenities (boulangierie, restaurants, and a small grocery store) without being busy and the house is a couple hundreds meters from the centre, which ensures quiet. The house itself was absolutely gorgeous (the pictures don't do it justice). The main floor common areas and especially the gorgeous and well equipped kitchen were fantastic. The patio allowed us to eat al fresco every night. The four bedrooms gave everyone some quiet moments. Everything about Maison de Farine make me recommend it very highly for your next vacation.
Amazing holiday in five star accomodation
We had a wonderful time staying at the Maison de Farine in Roqueburn. The house was beautifully decorated and spacious, with views across to Roqueburn which were stunning.The open plan living area housed a lovely, fully equipped kitchen with a fantastic (and large) central cooking and eating area (my teenage daughter made full use of the 'Nespresso' coffee machine and the 'coffee nook'!). We spent our days lazing by the lovely pool (which we were lucky enough to have to ourselves) and chilling out on the sun loungers. There was even a 'Cave' directly opposite the house, so holiday wine was plentiful! Roqueburn itself was a few minutes walk from the house and was lovely - small, but perfectly formed! There were a few good restaurants, a tabac, and a boulangerie. The river itself was wonderfully clear and perfectly safe for swimming.We took our own kayak (although there were plenty to rent) and spent a few lazy hours paddling up and down. We visited the coast, which was easily accessible in 40 minutes, on several occasions. Beziers is close, so is Montpellier and Carcassone, and we even made it to Nimes to meet friends! The house was spacious for our family of seven. The extra accomodation below the house, which will soon be available to rent, would be great for extended family and friends. Thank you for your hospitality, we will be back!
Très belle propriété...et propriétaires charmant !
Nous avons passé un très bon moment dans cette maison.
Tout était impeccable à notre arrivée, notre hôte avait même pris le temps de faire quelques courses avant que nous arrivions ! Nous avons vraiment été très bien accueilli.
La maison est très confortable, tout est fait pour passer un séjour luxueux. Elle est idéale pour deux couples avec enfants, car l'étage supérieur permet à chacun d'avoir son intimité.
La piscine est le petit plus bienvenue !
