Loft du Vigneron

Loft du Vigneron


A fully renovated, former wine-maker's property with private pool (11m x 4.5m).

Loft du Vigneron is located in the village of Rieux-Minervois in the heart of the Minervois vineyards. Carcassonne 30 minutes and Mediterranean beaches 60 minutes at Narbonne-Plage.

1 minute walk into the village with all shops, restaurants and café bars.

Rieux-Minervois dates back to the 11th century. It is typically French, with a twice weekly market and a relaxed atmosphere.

Rieux lies on one of the pilgrimage routes leading to Santiago de Campostela which explains the very rare 12th century heptagonal church, with its superb columns by the master of Cabestany. The village tourist information office is extremely helpful in providing further information on the wide variety of activities within the area, such as walking, boating, cycling etc.

Carcassonne (included in UNESCO's World Heritage Sites) has many attractions including the Cîte with its fairy tale turrets and ramparts and the Minervois itself has a history dating back 2,000 years.

The property is ideally placed between the Canal du Midi, the Montagnes Noires and the Corbières.

Cathar castles, including Les Châteaux de Lastours, and other beautiful medieval villages, such as Minerve and Lagrasse, are all within easy reach of Rieux-Minervois.

For those guests wishing to visit the Mediterranean coast and its beaches the region's coastal towns of Narbonne, Agde and Sète can be easily reached as can the Camargue, the Pyrénées and Catalan Spain.

Cathar sites of interest, especially those at Carcassonne, Béziers and the village of Minerve offer rich cultural experiences and breath-taking scenery.

The Canal du Midi runs through the whole of the region from Carcassonne towards Castelnaudary. With its tree-lined banks and many eating and drinking places en route, it is an ideal way to spend a relaxing day, either walking or taking a boat trip.

Budget airlines fly to Carcassonne, 30 minutes away.

Feedback from previous guests

Thank you so much for a relaxing week - it was just what we needed! The Loft is truly exceptional and Oscar has loved playing in the garden. Visits to Narbonne, Carcassonne and the Sigean Animal Reserve were great. The highlight for us was the Gouffe de Cabesprine caves - a must see!

The Loft has been an ideal base for a wonderful vacation, and you have been wonderful hosts - thank you so much! We will remember our time here with delight and send you some more American guests! This is a wonderful part of France and we feel very lucky to have been here and at The Loft.
