La Maison du Midi is an extraordinary country residence in the heart of the Corbieres, incorporating modern style with the ambiance and proportions of an ancient wine cuvee (wine storage). It offers an amazing setting and views, six double en-suite bedrooms, open-plan entertaining spaces, terraces, a tranquil courtyard, a tennis court and large heated pool.
The mysteries of the Cathar country, sparkling Mediterranean beaches, the walled city of Carcassonne and the languid Canal du Midi are all within 30 minutes. Outdoor pursuits on the doorstep include mountain biking, walking and horse-riding. The owners have spent 12 years lovingly restoring this virtual ruin into a masterpiece of functionality, beauty, design and comfort.
