Overview of Domaine Horte

What Oliver loves…

  • At this villa in Languedoc the style is eclectic - ranging from sweet country simplicity to shabby chic.
  • This region is a foodie’s dream - the owner will tell you what restaurants are the best.
  • Wine lovers will adore exploring the Languedoc-Roussillon region, where sparkling wine was first born!

What you should know…

  • A car is essential to explore this beautiful wine region!
  • The house may not be suitable for young children - the pool is not fenced, so they’ll require supervision.

Brightness and easy elegance pervade this villa in Languedoc. When you wake, be sure to pick up fresh croissant from the bakery across the road (you are in France, after all). Take a walk through the grounds, where dappled sunlight plays across your path down to the river. The private pool encourages basking all day, while at night the chandelier in the sitting room will twinkle over you and your loved ones. You'll especially love the relaxed, country-style kitchen where the whole family can dine.

This holiday villa is located 15 minutes outside of the walled city of Carcassonne, your jumping-off point to the region. You might fly into the airport here, and take time to appreciate the citadel that dominates the town. Another (more quaint) town of note is Mirepoix; get your fresh produce here at the excellent Monday market.

Your villa is perfectly poised for you to drink in the Languedoc-Roussillon wine region. This region borders the Mediterranean (what better excuse to get to the coast?), and offers exciting, experimental wines that hold great value. Here you're a wine pioneer! Who needs Bordeaux or Champagne? A toast with Crémant de Limoux is just as sweet.

Interior & Grounds

Lovely, peaceful and welcoming Villa divided over two floors. Downstairs there is a vast, bright lounge with French doors that lead onto the large garden. There are comfortable sofas to relax on, creating an ideal space for guests to be able to unwind and be together. Off of the lounge there is a large dining room and well equipped kitchen with an additional dining table.

Upstairs there are three charmingly furnished bedrooms. Enjoy waking up in the fabulous master bedroom with a double bed. The other bedrooms have both double and single beds available. There is a family shower room and wet room upstairs. Wi-FI internet access is available at the property and fans are provided.

Escape from the sun to the upstairs TV room with UK television, DVD player and comfortable seating. French doors open onto stairs which lead down the terrace and pool area.

Domaine Horte has an exceptionally large garden with a river running through the bottom. There is also a barbecue: the sun terrace and provides a great space for alfresco dining with friends. Take a refreshing dip in the pool (5m x 10m), perfect for adults and children. There is plenty of space to bask in the sun or shade.

Map, Location & Local Information

The beautiful region of Languedoc-Roussillon is filled with vineyards and sunflowers. Wine tasting classes are readily available including in the local village itself. You can easily catch a glimpse of The Pyrenees which are the perfect excursion.

The location is wonderful for visiting the many Cathar castles and the fairytale ancient city of old Carcassonne is a must for young and old alike.

The "rose" city of Toulouse makes a great day out and the Mediterranean beaches are little over an hour away. It's only 2 hours to the border with Spain!

Carcassonne
The fortified town of Carcassonne - a restored medieval fortress - is rich in culture. Domaine Horte is also very close to Mirepoix - a small town with a very wide square with some ancient timber-framed houses. It is well worth a visit for the weekly market which takes place on Mondays.

Other sites of interest include: St. Hilarire, which is only ten minutes down the road and has a beautiful Abbey, and Limoux, which is a carnival town always bustling with activity. During the summer months there is always plenty of activity. it is a great place to have a coffee and a croissiant.

Owner Profile

Property Owner
Annette

How long have you owned the property?
10 years.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
The pool, the river and the house probably in that order.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
We went to France with a budget to buy a holiday home, the first house we were brought to was Domaine Horte and it was over double the budget, but we just fell in love with it. It was owned by a lovely Dutch couple who reached their 80's and their family wanted them to return to Rotterdam. Very reluctantly they left. They said they had 14 wonderfully happy years there. We discovered a summer or two ago that there is an environmentally area to the left of the house now owned by a man whose family had once owned the Domaine. I think he thinks he is going to own it again one day. He was interesting because he could explain certain things in the house and why it is laid out as it is. You will see what I mean if you decide to visit.

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
Apart from my friends who think they are all famous!

What’s the strangest or most difficult guest request you’ve ever received?
We had a problem with the pool. Previous guests had allowed plastic into the pool which discoloured the water. The guests arrived the pool was not glistening as is advertised. The children looked dismayed. Our wonderful manager Bev, explained the problem to the guests, said she would have it sorted in 24 hours and she did. Bev will do every thing possible so long as she is advised to rectify any issue in the shortest possible time.

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Really do?
Visit the fortified town of Carcasonne.

Really eat?
Visit the Domaine de Gayda Restaurant, Winery and Wine Education Centre.

Really see?
Visit the Cathar Castles.

Lastly, what insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
The salon is a great place to unwind. Put on some music, light some candles, pour a glass of wine and hey presto!
