Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: Julian and I are both Canadians who have come to own, work and run the luxury hotel barge Athos, on the Canal du Midi. We have been based in Argeliers since 2001 with our young family. We have a healthy enjoyment of our french country life that extends to our knowledge of the region's wines, the places of historical importance, the fun tourist activities and varied sports activities in the surrounding area.

Why Argeliers, France:
La Maison Cachee is a balance of old and new. The traditional village house offers all the comforts of a modern house, but dates back to the 17th century, and is located in the quiet village of Argeliers. Renovated with modern conveniences and comforts, the property includes 4 bedrooms & bathrooms, a sitting room, kitchen / dining, a gas BBQ, a lush and private courtyard garden with 6 x 4m pool, and four bathrooms. It has generous space for 8 people and is centrally located between Narbonne and Beziers - 40 minutes from the Mediterranean beaches and 45 minutes from Carcassonne or Beziers airport, 1.15min from Montpellier.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is spread over 3 floors, and is deceivingly spacious. It includes many preserved original features including wooden shutters and stone walls that give the house character.
