C24@Jouarres is a 45sq m apartment (ideal for couples or young families) which is part of a residence that is adjacent to the world famous UNESCO Canal du Midi and is set in 5 hectares of grounds originally belonging to the neighbouring 18th century chateau. The residence has a large swimming pool with children’s paddling pool and a large sun terrace plus there is a designated BBQ area, woodland walks and large open spaces, etc.
The apartment being on the ground floor has its own patio and small decked garden. Inside there is a double bedroom and a “cabin” room with bunk beds, which are suitable for 2 children aged 5 – 12 years. The open plan living/dining room has a well-equipped kitchenette area with combi-microwave, washing machine, ceramic 4 burner hob, mini oven, coffee maker, toaster, good selection of cookware, utensils, crockery, etc. An outside drier, iron, ironing board, plus hairdryer are also provided for guests’ use.
There is a 32” flat screen TV (which can only pick up a couple of English speaking channels), a DVD player with a selection of videos, plus cards/games and a selection of books etc for evenings. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower, washbasin and heated towel rail plus there is a separate toilet. For cooler evenings there are electric heaters in the main rooms. WIFI is available in the apartment, as well as by the pool and reception areas plus G4 reception is very good in this area.
This area is true rustic unspoilt France and being adjacent to the Canal du Midi there is easy access to miles of walking/cycling paths and quiet roads to explore through old villages that retain the feeling of old France. The residence is surrounded by vineyards so there are many wines to sample from the local Minervois region and neighbouring Corbieres region.
About a mile away is the pretty canalside village of Homps which has a small supermarket plus several restaurants and a few shops. For larger supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, local markets, etc the small towns of Olonzac, La Redorte and Lezignan Corbieres are only a few miles away. Mediterranean beaches are less than an hour’s drive away as are the historic cities of Carcassonne, Narbonnes and Beziers and also the famous Cathares castles.
The Black Mountains are about an hour’s drive to the north with the Pyrenees about two hours to the south. So the apartment is ideally situated for a relaxing holiday, yet has lots to offer locally to guests with varied interests.
Getting there is quite easy with local airports at Carcassonne (about 40 minute’s drive), Beziers and Perpignan, yet access to the motorway network is less than half an hour away for those preferring to drive.
During high season 7 day minimum stays – usually Saturday to Saturday but we can be flexible depending on existing bookings. Please note a minimum charge will apply for less than 7 days stays.
