If you’re looking to experience genuine authentic French rural life, you’ve found it with Maison d'etes! This charming, restored 18th Century wine growers house is set in the tiny, wine growing village of Babio. The country lane literally stops at Babio!  Views from the house and garden is of small parcels of land with neatly planted vineyards protected by ancient dry stone walls. In the distance stand the Forest topped Mountains Noirs.
The garrigue is packed full of limestone shingle, peppered with aromatic herbs, wild asparagus and garlic. Ancient tracks, perfect for walking or cycling lead from the front door to take you to local villages, the River Cesse or limestone gorges with ancient caves. In spring, Pyrenean sheep dogs protect new lambs in the spare, unused paddocks, while small tractors can be seen gently ploughing between the vines.
 
Within a five minute drive you will arrive at 5 other historic villages, three with outstanding restaurants and one with a newly built, well stock Utile supermarket. It is essential to have a car or motorcycle to explore the region, but you are only an hour from Carcassonne and Beziers airports. Perpignan, Girona and Toulouse airports, under two hours. There are train stations at Beziers, Carcassone and Narbonne and car rental companies based near them. For those who love cycling, bikes can be rented.

The Accommodation:

Many of the original details and character of the property have been retained. The internal areas have been lime rendered to follow the undulating nature of the walls.
The kitchen retains its original marble sink (now used as a secondary washing area). The front door has been restored and keeps its original door furniture. The windows and staircase have been built by a local artisan carpenter from the trunk of an extremely old local Oak tree. Part of the house faces North protecting it from the summer sunshine. It is partly attached at the rear to a vigneron's property allowing all windows to enjoy far reaching views of the open countryside. Like many ancient village houses the garden is separated from the house. A twenty pace walk across the village placette leads to the entrance of the secluded garden with swimming pool, terrace and summer kitchen housed in a hundred year old stone clad village water tank. The views from the garden are breathtaking - a valley with vineyards and olive groves with the Mountains Noirs in the background.

Pets not allowed Child friendly Non-smoking
As the garden is situated across the village placette, it is not suitable for very young children.
