A stone built, 3 bedroom terraced vacation rental house for rent in the Languedoc region of France. The house is situated in a small village called Bizanet, between Narbonne and Lezignan Corbiere in the department of Aude.
Its location makes it ideal for touring the area. Spain Is only 45 minutes away and the Medieval castle of Carcassonne is just over half hour. The recently renovated village house sleeps up to 6 people comfortably.
The house is equipped with fridge, full size cooker and television. There is a terrace where everybody can enjoy dining or reading. We allow pets (normally dogs) by prior arrangement.
The Languedoc is in the South West of France adjacent to the Mediterranean Sea with its excellent beaches and Spain. Also known as the Midi, it is the sun drenched south of France with over 2000 hours of sunshine a year. The area gets more sunshine than anywhere else in France. The Languedoc Roussillon is often described as the forgotten Riviera. The coastline of this part of Southern France is ideal as an alternative to the pricier tourist destinations of St Tropez and Cannes further east.
The Languedoc has a great historical past, first settled by the Romans many other conquerors came and settled in the area. Everyone from Hannibal to the Visigoth's left their mark on the area. This is the land of the Cathars, the religious sect wiped out by Pope Innocent III. You will see Cathars names on signs everywhere. For part of it's history the Languedoc was part of Spain, and is still known sometimes as Catalan France, many of the people of the Languedoc have Spanish ancestry.
If you like the the laid back way of life and good cuisine, this is the place for you. Wine buffs can enjoy the local wines as the Languedoc is the largest wine growing area in the world. Suffering from a bad reputation some years ago it's wines were not of the best quality, to say the least. Recent investment in the vineyards has produced some of the best wines in the world as new vines have been planted and harvested.

There are three bedrooms on the ground floor, one double, one twin and one single. There is also a large bathroom housing the washing machine and a separate w.c.
