Spend the weekend resting, receiving your choice of well-being treatments and exploring the beautiful local region.
Our comfortable home and its delightful large garden, lies at the foot of the Caroux mountains, situated in the peaceful village of Colombieres sur Orb.
You can walk or cycle right from our doorstep into woods and vineyards, along an old, converted railway; or a short drive will take you to hiking routes in nearby gorges or mountains; golf, horse-riding and fishing are also available close by.
Visit the medieval villages of Olargues and Roquebrun, or stop off and sample some of the many excellent local Faugeres and St Chinian wines. There are some outstanding restaurants close by, and an abundance of local markets and organic produce to enjoy.
Or just relax, stay home… and let us take care of you.
How To Get Here

We can advise you about best routes, and provide pick-ups and drop-offs at airports or the train station for an additional cost if you don’t want to hire a car.
