About Dannielle Farrant
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.
Dannielle Farrant purchased this House in 2012
Why Dannielle Farrant chose Aude
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

We have just spent 2 weeks at La Maison Cachee and had a wonderful time. This lovely house comfortably accommodated 6 of us and had everything we needed. The bedrooms were beautifully cool, plenty of bathrooms, the kitchen was a good size and well equipped, but most of all the outside area with dining table, barbecue, and the beautiful pool made this the perfect stay for us! Dannielle and Julian left us alone but were really helpful when we needed them, and were even able to get us 6 bikes for a couple of trips along the beautiful Canal du Midi for lunch in the nearby village of Le Somail. Argeliers is a quiet village with a couple of bars and Le Chat Qui Peche is a great restaurant next to the canal which we highly recommend. Easy access to the Intermarche and lots of lovely villages made this a great base for the region. Would definitely stay again when in the area!
So pleased you enjoyed your stay and that the house lived up to expectations. Many thanks for your detailed response. It's great to know what really counted about people's experience at La Maison Caché and in Argeliers. Look forward to having you back at some stage!
Home away from home
Lovely house - 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, laundry, dishwasher, pool. We rented the property for 10 nights and went with our 2 children, ages 5 and 10. We had a great deal of room to move around and not get on each other's nerves. The property is really well laid out with the master suite upstairs, 3 bedrooms on the 2nd level (with a tv room) and the kitchen/dining rooms downstairs. Swimming pool was lovely (a touch cold still in May). Very close to bakery and food store, as well as post office. We used the BBQ several times and dined outside as often as possible. Owners know the area very well and are perfect hosts. Will stay here again 100%. If you're renting a car, make sure you also rent/bring a GPS or use your phone. Argeliers is very picturesque, we loved walking and barging along the Canal du Midi. Thank you!!
Fabulous village house!
My family and friends have just returned from spending an idyllic week in Argeliers. The house has been beautifully renovated and is very comfortable and very well equipped. It was a perfect property to visit with friends as it is so spacious and allows privacy. The outside space is fantastic with a lovely outside dining area as well as a herb garden and fenced pool. Argeliers is a perfect base to explore the region and Argeliers itself offers everything you need: a shop, bakers, butchers, bar and a few restaurants. Can't recommend this property enough!!!
A Perfect Piece of French Paradise
I absolutely love this holiday house with private back garden and pool. The lavender, roses and herbs in the garden remind you that you are living the good life in the south of France.
The house is spacious, well appointed, ver clean and charming. The kitchen is large and ideal for group cooking. And, if you really don't want to cook there are a couple of restaurants in Argeliers to try. Our favourite is Le Chat Qui Peche, just a five minute walk from the house.
A wonderful feature is being so close to the Canal du Midi. It's a quick walk away and is the perfect place for cycling, long walks and boat watching. You can also wander through the vineyards that surround Argeliers.
I can't wait to get back and to bring friends with us next time as there's plenty of room--both in the house and on the pool deck.
Thank-you so much for staying at La Maison Cachée. The garden has grown since last you time you visited, and is producing lemons, lettuce and herbs in large quantities.
Looking forward to seeing you again,
Truly a Home Away from Home
This home became our anchor for three months in this tranquil Languedoc area. The home is spacious with all the required amenities to receive guests comfortably. The home is close to the village where most provisions can be purchased.
The swimming pool was an added bonus and always sparkled. The garden was a pleasure to look on while enjoying the outside patio, which was always protected from the wind. A super BBQ made meal times easy.
The Managers were very caring and helpful.
We would recommend this home for any family. There are endless things to do in the surrounding area and the Owners have left excellent guide books and tips for guests to follow.
We would return without hesitation.
We look forward to your return ;-) Your loving care of the garden still shows!! Best, Dannielle
