Olonzac, Herault, Occitanie
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.

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.

Management response:

Many thanks indeed, we are very pleased you enjoyed your stay here. JDV Holidays.

There is a swimming pool and extensive garden grounds full of trees providing many shady spots to enjoy a glass of wine. The gite...

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 questions and advice. The pool was on the cool side but clean and we enjoyed...
