A true paradise

The calm and beauty of the place are soothing. We appreciated the refined decoration of the Maison du Village and also the Corbières wines.

Just exceptional.

The garden is a pure marvel. The house is a palace, tastefully decorated, with old-world charm and all modern comforts. The bedding is perfect, the swimming pool sublime. The host spoiled us with his welcome and his stories, particularly about the extraordinary history of the house and the estate.

In a pretty little village in the heart of the beautiful Corbières valley. The house is superb, the park is magnificent, the swimming pool among the trees is splendid... Everything is refinement!
The chatelaine surrounded by her children and grandchildren will welcome you in the best way. We sometimes feel like we are part of this big family.

Christiane TOUUCHE

a unique place.

There is this large park with its avenue of century-old plane trees, its swimming pool... Our apartment located on the ground floor is very comfortable and decorated with care and great taste. The place is steeped in the history of the Niermans family. We had an exceptional stay in this magical and timeless place. A big thank you to our host of course but also to Mrs. and Mr. Lacube who were always available for us.
