Sunday Times January 2018 - One of the top 20 gites in France : '....sits at the heart of village life serving up southern France in all its glorious, sunlit simplicity. Antique bedsteads, window box geraniums and baguettes from round the corner are all part of the scene here. So, too, is a magnificent array of beaches & ancient monuments....' Maison des Fleurs is an 18th century stone artisan's cottage lovingly restored as a gite with exposed beams, wood burning stove and sunny balcony where you can sit with a glass of wine and watch village life go by. Situated in the village of Thezan des Corbieres, this part of the Languedoc has a superb micro climate making the summers very hot and the winters moderate - there is also so much to do in this region that you can holiday here any time...Sunday Times January 2018 - One of the top 20 gites in France : '....sits at the heart of village life serving up southern France in all its glorious, sunlit simplicity.

Situated in the village of Thezan des Corbieres, this part of the Languedoc has a superb micro climate making the summers very hot and the winters moderate - there is also so much to do in this region that you can holiday here any time of the year. This is a wine growing village and abounds in glorious vineyards just right for relaxing strolls in the sun. Thezan des Corbieres is only 27 miles from Carcassonne or Beziers airport and 30 minutes from a choice of 44 local beaches; only 6 km away is a beautiful river where local and tourists swim. Situated in the heart of Cathar country the area has many Chateaux, Abbeys and Cathar ruins to explore.Thezan des Corbieres is a thriving little village that has all the amenities necessary for a relaxing holiday, the Boulangerie doubles as a well stocked grocery store whilst the Tabac sells a variety of things - including stamps; there is also a Brocante (Antique/Junk shop), an Estate Agent and a Bar/Restaurant which serves lunches and 3 course evening meals. There is also a pizzeria/bar in the village square where you can sit and eat or takeaway a pizza.Maison des Fleurs is a tiny artisans cottage set out on three floors. The ground floor has a sparkling new kitchen and dining area with a Godin wood burning stove; there is a separate toilet and sink on this floor. The middle floor has a shower room and a lounge complete with sunny balcony and the top floor has a double bedroom and a tiny single bedroom - this really is tiny, the bed is adult size but we do recommend the room is only used for young children. Retaining its original beams and ceiling height some of the top floor is limited in head space but definitely not in character.More
