A very charming French home nestled in Babio, 3 km from the quaint village of La Caunette.
The owner has a great sense of style. The house has been beautifully decorated and furnished with a great attention to detail. A successful combination of modern comforts and objects found at local flea markets. The decorations are especially subtle. The walls are painted in beautiful soft colours: beige, lavender and muted yellows. Accessed from the terrace, across the small and very quiet local village road, there is a special garden.
This beautiful and romantic place, a leafy garden with a seating area, has views over the vineyards. It also has a spacious, covered “cuisine d’été” (summer kitchen), an ideal place for long balmy evenings. The Minervois is a stunning area for outdoor pursuits, not least famed for its walking, wild flowers and bird watching possibilities. There are several walking guide books and maps in the house for your use.
On Tuesday morning there is a lively market in the nearby small town of Olonzac.
