A charming family villa with own pool, close the the beach, entertaining space.
A charming family villa with own pool, outdoor space, BBQ and a short drive to the beach.
Set amongst the wonderful vineyards only 8km from Narbonne and tucked away on a quite little village street in the ever so charming Armissan; this rustic property was once used to store all the wonderful wine that were produced in the wine cave next door to the property. It was modestly restored over a decade ago by us, and is the place of many great memories for our family and friends alike.
Armissan is a wine producing village approximately 10 minutes from the Mediterranean Sea, about an hour from Montpellier, 30 minutes from the medieval city of Carcassonne and less than three hours from Barcelona, Spain. The near-by city of Narbonne is plotted on the Canal de la Midi and boasts a train station with great connections to other cities within the region and further afield. It is also an ideal place to visit both day and night to enjoy the markets, bars and tourist sites.
Furnished to a comfortable standard in traditional French style -

•Wifi – there will be a wifi dongle provided with 1/2GB of data on. This can be increased at an extra cost. We have historically always gone to the bars, cafes on the plage to connect to the internet. However the dongle is sufficient for checking emails.
•Stairs – the stairs leading up to the bedrooms are very steep and I would not recommend for an elderly person to use them. My mother got to a point where she stopped using them and we had a sofabed in the livingroom/snug instead. This worked well as there is a privacy curtain, the room become hers for any trip. This could be the case again if requested, being the total sleeping numbers up another 2 pax. We have of course managed with the stairs for years and years with toddlers and kiddies, however caution is recommended and supervision for little ones. Particularly when they’ve wet feet!
The 4 bedrooms are upstairs, each nicely sized and with a large window and shutters.

•Bedroom 4 (Master)… A standard double bed, built in shelving a WC and shower
The livingroom/snug can sleep a further 2 people on a fold out sofa bed.
•The house is NOT air-conditioned however each bedroom comes equipped with plug in fans.
Upstairs you’ll also find the independent toilet and shower, which is for three of the bedrooms. The Master bedroom boasts it’s own toilet and electric shower.
•Linen and towels provided.
•Parking for 1 or 2 cars outside the house.
•Very bad phone coverage in the village – often need to take a walk down the street

I fell in love with the charm of this property and almost purchased on the spot.
The arched ceiling in the downstairs living area is a beautiful touch and shows the history of the building.
If are happy with the level of decor and living conditions etc. It is a lovely cosy family home, simple, not hotel standard.
The villa will not be cleaned during a stay. There will however be spare bedding and towels for you as well as a washing machine and dryer which you can use as you wish.
***We do not have a fence around the pool. This might be a concern for some parents****
*** 10/2/16 - I also wanted to advise that we have recently visited the house and have decided we will likely replace a few things. These being:
We will be cutting down the large jasmine tree on the garage wall as it is growing at a very fast rate.
We will remove the garden swing/chair as it isn't really fit for public letting.
We will likely replace some of the garden furniture - new sun loungers and possibly some seating etc. Of course it will be replace with good quality items ***
Thank you in advance for reading this long winded description and I look forward to hearing from you.
Be respectful of the neighbours.
We only accept bookings for a minimum of two weeks from the last two weeks in July and all through the month of August, without exception.
I moved to Hastings 2 years ago having relocated back to the UK after spending 18 years on the West coast of Ireland raising my 4 children.
I have taken to renovating my beautiful Grade II listed home. It is very much a work in progress, but one which I am enjoying.
I work full time up the road, and in my free time I enjoy taking a walk along the promenade, rummaging in the many vintage shops and socialising with the lovely people I have met in my short time here.
I would love to welcome people in to my home, who are looking to explore the town and surrounding area. I do also have a number of other rooms available so please just ask xxx
