About Julie Smith
Malcolm and I bought the property because we loved the relaxed way of life in France and it reminded us a little of our younger days. Not quite at retirement we needed a form of income and this seemed as good way to experience the life we wanted
Julie Smith purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Julie Smith chose Fontiès-d'Aude
Our house is a real home from home and generally our guests feel right at home straight away. The located in a small village gives us the peace and quiet that we craved and the views are stunning across the Minervois

Let us take care of you and give you the true experience of France without the frustrations

Lovely villa, lovely host and lovely area
We used the villa as a base for a family wedding situated about half an hour away in another town.
Firstly, Julie was so helpful prior to our break and during it. She was so accommodating and welcoming.
Her villa is everything I imagined a villa in the French countryside to be. We were a family of 10, we had plenty of space and the 6 bedrooms suited us perfectly. The 2 downstairs bedrooms had their own ensuites and gorgeous little secluded terraces. Upstairs, we all loved our rooms and the beds were so comfortable.
The sun terrace had a fabulous dining table which we had breakfast and dinner at overlooking the gorgeous views. The side sun terrace was perfect for sitting with the family later in the evening with a glass of local wine.
The pool area down from the villa is peaceful and secluded. We enjoyed time there also.
I can't thank Julie enough for her help which made our time in France even better. I wished we had stayed longer.
I am very pleased that you enjoyed your time with us and Thank You very much for your glowing report
Très belle propriété dans un style "anglais" très chic.
Merci aux propriétaires pour leur accueil chaleureux.
casa para ir en verano
es una casa correcta con espacios un poco reducidos para 12 personas en el interior aunque tiene unas terrazas muy amplias y bonitas y un jardin con piscina muy grande.
Los lavabos son correctos y en general es una casa muy recomendable para verano
Moltes Gràcies pels teus comentaris. Amb aquests nens exuberants Puc entendre que vostè realment necessita una propietat molt més gran quan el clima no és tan bo. Mrs Smith Owner
