Welcome to Bonelli’s Holiday House
Our Domaine is hidden in the limestone countryside and vineyards of the Minervois an hour from Carcassonne and Beziers airports in the South of France. It lies on the edge of the Haut-Languedoc Parc Naturel and is home to the endangered Bonelli’s eagle, orchids, dormice and other wildlife. Yet, this haven of tranquility is only minutes’ drive from local markets, award winning restaurants, and wineries, and the historic town of Minerve and the Canal du Midi (world heritage site). The larger historic towns of Narbonne (Mediterranean beaches) and Carcassonne are an hour from the house. It is the perfect choice for walking, cycling, horse riding, sightseeing, birdwatching (spring and autumn) or simply relaxing by the pool. See our things to do pages for more detail. Let us know if you want help to arrange guided birdwatching and nature tours (click the Birding Languedoc link below), horse riding, kayaking, boating on the Canal du Midi, or if you want to hire bicycles. We can also recommend restaurants, wineries, and the best places to walk and cycle.
The recently restored stone built winery offers flexible luxury accommodation for up to 6 people (contact us for larger groups - we can recommend additional accommodation very close by). The house has air-conditioning, a well equipped semi subterranean kitchen, sitting room with TV & DVD, music center and Satellite internet and a lovely bathroom. It also has access to its own heated pool with a BBQ and outdoor eating area in the garden straight opposite the house. Additional bed space for 1 person is available (for a small fee) in our genuine 1950’s bow top gypsy caravan.
