Farm house overview - owner's description
Lovely restored farmhouse on edge of quiet hamlet and 15 minutes from one of the most beautiful villages in France. Safe river bathing 5 minutes away. 4 bedrooms can sleep 8.
This property is situated on the edge of the quiet hamlet of St Martin, nestled on a bend in the River Orbieu.
It is in the Corbières region of the Languedoc, an area unspoilt by tourism or development in the foothills of the Pyrenees.
It has planted and wooded gardens, ideal for children to play in, and the immediate area is perfect for long walks, offering fine views and total peace and quiet.
The outstanding village of Lagrasse, classified as one of the most beautiful in France, is a 15 minute drive away with its medieval streets, abbey, restaurants, shops, bars and markets selling local produce etc.
The immediate area is perfect for long walks in the hills of the regional forest, covered in wild herbs with fine views and total peace and quiet.
10 minutes walk from the house there is safe tranquil bathing in the river pools, or there are several Mediterranean beaches to choose from, whether long stretches of sand or family oriented resorts, all within an hours drive.
The ski slopes of the French Pyrenees, and Andora.( 80.0 km)

Ideal for aspiring artists, writers, musicians or people who just want to sit in the sun and read. The owner is an artist and this is evident in the house, from his work which is displayed on the walls to the decorative style of the whole house. A gorgeous place to chill-out and revive your spirit.
