Glorious Luxury Languedoc Villa with six bedrooms and own large pool and tennis court in nearly an acre of land in historic wine-growing hillside village

Overview

Villa Alarelle is our luxury villa available for rental in the Minervois area of Herault in the Languedoc France.

Villa Alarelle is a six bedroom Villa built for our family in 2005 with 2 en suites and 2 further bathroom/showerooms. There is a fully fitted kitchen and separate utility room. The main lounge/diner is over 20 metres long with patio doors leading onto a south-westerly facing patio and onto the Villa’s large free-form pool. A brand new hard court tennis court is situated further to the rear of the property in its landscaped plot of approximately one acre (4000m2).


Villa Alarelle’s Location

Villa Alarelle is situated in the middle of the small hilltop village of Montouliers in the Minervois. The primary activity in the village is wine-growing although the village also boasts a Church dating back to the 10th Century and a small general stores providing bread, cheese and other basic groceries.

As well as other village stores and boulangers in local villages there is also a large supermarket in the town of Capestang about 10 minutes drive away.

The historic towns and cities of Carcassonnne, Beziers, Narbonne and Montpellier are all within 30 minutes to an hour’s drive of the Villa and the nearby motorway leads quickly south to Barcelona and east to Provence.


Restaurants, shopping and beaches near Villa Alarelle.

Although Villa Alarelle is primarily based in a wine growing area, it is also cenrally placed to some of the finest restaurants in the Languedoc Region. In particular, the Auberge du Crussade a few km away is rated by Trip Advisor in the top 10 in the whole of Langedoc whilst at least another half a dozen quality restaurants/bistros, many offering al fresco dining, are situated within a similar short distance.

In the larger towns of Carcassonne, Beziers and Narboone, a little further away, there are, of course, a full range of restaurants, bars and nightlife together with extensive shooping facilites at both out-of-town shopping parks and within their historic town centres. Our particular favourite is Montpellier . There is a drive of an hour or so to get there but it’s shopping and facilities are amongst the best in France and its architecture is stunning.

The nearest beach to Villa Alarelle is at Gruissan, about 30 minutes drive away, a rather unusual resort with an extensive beach area and a large number of stilted beach chalets made famous in the film Betty Blue. Valras Plage is another more traditional French resort just south of Beziers which is well worth a visit. However, the whole coastline between the Spanish border and the Camargue to the east of Montpellier is made up of sweeping sandy beaches interrupted by lagoons, fishing village and occasional resorts which give countless opportunities to explore together with the historic countryside and hills of Cathar counry around the Villa.

From Windlesham, United Kingdom Oct 2006

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful villa set in an old hillside village with stunning views of the surrounding vineyards. The property was very spacious, well-equipped with all mod-cons and very comfortably furnished. The pool was lovely and the excellent tennis-court was a real bonus.

There's lots to do in the surrounding area, with good local restaurants and wine-tasting. We really enjoyed sitting out and relaxing in the evening at the villa sampling the excellent local wines.

A great place to get away from it all - we would definitely go again,

We had an excellent time with three families with small children. The villa is very spacious and surprisingly cool indoors. Also all equipment was available.
