We are just 1 km from the little wine and apple-growing village of Aigues Vives on the edge of the beautiful garrigue countryside with vines and olives to 3 sides.
There are several local caves/wine cellars producing very good wine, which definitely needs to be tasted at first hand! They all offer free tastings!
We are easily reached, being centrally located in the Minervois wine region of Aude with several airports close by.
There is something for everyone whether it's the azure blue Mediterranean and its miles of glorious sandy beaches, the historical fortified Cathar town of Carcassonne or the Canal du Midi.
There are many Cathare castles to be explored for the history-lovers.
The holiday home is half of a single-storey villa shared with the owners who will be pleased to assist you if needed.
The holiday home also doubles as a holistic Wellness Centre.
Anne, a wellness coach and as a methylation and epigenetic consultant, has a special interest in helping parents of children affected by ADHD and autism to be able to enjoy and have pride in their children and enable them to have quality family time together.
Anne, who is also trained in naturopathic nutrition, is most passionate about educating people about the power of lifestyle changes to completely transform their health and well-being.
If you want to change your well-being but not sure what to do next, Anne can show you how to optimise your health.
Individualised Progams are created covering nutrition, lifestyle, exercise, diet and more. Programs can be continued after the holiday is finished if required.
If interested to hear more about the wellness programs, please ask for details.
Back to the VIlla - The villa lies within nearly 2 acres of private enclosed park-like garden and woodland area with ample parking area beside the apartment. The solar-heated pool has a security domed cover, ideal for grey weather swimming & it opens up for the hot weather.
There is a large goldfish pond, a beautiful tranquil place to sit beside.
Only being 4 km from the Canal du Midi there are lovely places to walk or cycle not far away.
We pride ourselves on using minimal amount of chemicals, virtually only to keep the swimming pool water in sparkling condition. No chemical pesticides or herbicides are used or chemical household cleaners.
We are trying to make a safe environment not only for our guests but for the wildlife we share our garden with.
Apart from numerous bird species including goldfinches, chaffinches, greenfinches, hoopoes, golden orioles, nightingales, serins, rollers, bee-eaters, robins, blackbirds..... we have resident bats, visiting beech martens, red squirrels and occasional foxes and hares. There are also common wall lizards and the much larger eyed and green lizards, some of which enjoy a snack of melon, nectarine or other juicy fruit occasionally.
