About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

Chez-Georges is a very well-appointed 19th century 2-bedroom 2-story stone house, owner-operated since 2007, prepared with the finest local antiques and attention to architectural detail and comfort.
The house is an oasis of tranquility close to the 6 magnificent Cathare castles that highlight our area - it is close to some of the finest wineries in Southern France, in an area offering antiquities, meandering walks, hiking and cycling for all - from a well-situated home base.
We are close enough to all the things you'll want to see, but yet far enough removed, so you can enjoy the relaxing country life that France presents.
The house is a converted stone barn with 160 square meters on two floors – downstairs with the kitchen, eating, and sitting areas that lead out to a fenced lawn/garden and patio. The twin-bedded bedroom and bathroom with walk-in shower complete the ground floor. The large private and fenced garden off the main floor invites outdoor dining, balmy summertime BBQ's, and great games of croquet!
Upstairs is the great room, featuring white marble floors in a floor-to-ceiling glass-walled living room that overlooks the garden, with the raised master bedroom overlooking all, all complimented with a luxurious en-suite bath, that features a large soaker tub and shower.
We are most proud to offer Chez-Georges to you, and to have been designated as a 'recommended place to stay', by “TopRural” websites after receiving top 5-star ratings from virtually all our guests.
We are pleased to offer the complimentary use of a GPS during your stay, (so you can find you way home after your day of exploring) and will have a welcome package for you on arrival, to save you running to the supermarket after your busy travel day.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are retired Canadians from Vancouver who bought here in 2001, and then bought again to participate in the gite business.

Why the Owner Chose Courtauly, France:
The house is brilliant - not the normal French gite property. It was built in 2001 to current day standards - in the conversion of an 18th century barn, with lots of light - marble and terracotta flooring, and a comfortable selection of furnishings. All you need bring is your toothbrush...

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We provide a 'welcome pack' for your arrival - bread, milk, coffee, tea, yogurt, fruit, ham, cheese, flowers, wine, and blanquette so you don't have to shop in the midst of getting here. We also do specialized shopping for guests on request.
