Charming villa on the edge of a typical Mediterranean wine producing village en route to the Cathar castle land.
A young wine grower and his charming wife have built an ensemble of four villas, each with its own pool, on the edge of a Corbiere village. While there is shared parking, each villa has complete privacy and is not overlooked by its neighbours. (see Ref: A1a, c and d).
This villa is built on one level, is spacious, well equipped and comfortably furnished. Glass doors lead out onto a pool side terrace and to a marvelous Santa Fe style covered terrace/summer kitchen with huge wooden beams that Mr. Riviere salvaged from an old barn. He is also an artist so all the colours used on the inside and outside capture the warmth of the Mediterranean sun - mustard ochres, honey yellows and earthy terracottas contrast beautifully with the blue of the water.
