Holiday Rental House
This lovely terraced gite, one of 5 similar ones available, overlooks the garden and swimming pool of a former wealthy wine-producer and trader's house in Olonzac, the 'capital' of the Minervois wine-producing region. The owners have tried to think about everything to make your stay here comfortable and enjoyable. Ideal for a holiday for 2, house-hunting or sight-seeing in the area, the gites were converted from the stables & staff quarters of the old house. They comprise a comfortable living-room & galley-style kitchenette on the ground floor, and a spacious bedroom and shower room on the 1st floor.

Although the terrace is shared with the other gite guests here, making for a convivial outside space, you are free to make use of the large garden to find a quiet spot to sit if you prefer. If you would like a private terrace, please check to see if GITE TOPAZE DOREE is available for your dates. The property has a lovely, large swimming pool in the garden and a outdoor spa pool/jacuzzi, ideal for relaxing in after a day's sightseeing. The swimming pool and the jacuzzi are heated between April and the end of October. Situated in the lively town of Olonzac which has shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants and a Tuesday morning colourful market - all just a few steps away. However despite being in the town, the garden location of the gites is both tranquil and charming.More

This is an excellent, quiet gite right in the heart of Olonzac a short walk from all facilities, but it feels like you're in the countryside, with a wonderful swimming pool and massive garden. Superb and hosted by the lovely Bene and Freddie.

Pleasantly surprised to find the gite quite spacious. We had everything we needed, even Sky TV. We slept well - the bed was comfy, no outside noise (especially so with the shutters), the bathroom clean, good shower. The owners were friendly and available for any...More
