Set in an idyllic position on the edge of the enchanting village of Embres et Castelmaure and surrounded by sun drenched limestone hills, lush vineyards and aromatic pines. Built in an upside down fashion to make the most of the breathtaking views across the Corbières mountains to provide light and airy family living space on the first floor and cool bedrooms on the ground floor - very welcome in the height of the summer. If like us you enjoy a rural French ambiance, where the pace of life is slow and uncomplicated, yet if you want your holiday home to offer you the modern luxuries to help make your stay relaxing and comfortable our villas are the place for you. Close to lovely Mediterranean beaches, and the pretty town of Durban with shops and amenities, the surrounding area is rich in Cathar history, medieval castles, ancient monasteries and beautiful landscapes to drive, walk or cycle through. Autoroute 30 mins & Airports approx 50 minutes away.
Great Place To Stay With Amazing Views
By Clair Parsons on 11-Aug-2018
Nestled in the mountains this house was a great find. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay and the pool is very welcoming on the hot days. Debbie the owner was very helpful and attentive throughout the process and really helped us out. We were in the area for a wedding and she went above and beyond to help us with some difficult logistics. All the local agents that are used for maintenance etc were also very helpful and friendly and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this house to anyone, it's a gem! Thank you Debbie!
Beautiful Villa Set In The Wonderful Vineyards
By Ruth E on 17-Aug-2016
We stayed in this lovely villa last year. The property was maintained to a high standard it was spotlessly clean. The pool was a great size and the patio area provided sun and shade when needed. Our little boy loved the pool and the spacious house and outside space. Everything in the villa was precisely as described. The owner Debbie was very kind and helpful as was Jeanne the manager. There is alot to do in this region it is such a beautiful place if you are looking for peaceful tranqulity this is the perfect place. We would love to return soon Ruth and Family
Lovely Villa And Great Views
By William G on 18-Aug-2015
Arrived at Villa Grenache after long drive and immediately jumped into fabulous refreshing swimming pool. Hot week ,loads of walks in lovely countryside and pop up restaurant at local wine cave a revelation. Delicious local wine from the cave, very relaxing and peaceful week. Great villa with lovely first floor open plan sitting room and kitchen with fabulous views.
Wonderful Place For A Relaxing Break
By Anon on 20-Jul-2015
Lovely bright house with stunning living space and great little pool - perfect for our family with 3 teenagers. Debbie and Peter, the owners, and Joanne, the local caretaker all very helpful, and the villa was immaculate and well-appointed. The village wine "Cave" is very handy to keep supplies topped up, and we ate at the fantastic pop-up tapas restaurant there on 2 evenings - a must during the summer. The area is very rugged, with small vineyards tucked among the wild and dramatic scenery. The Cathar castles to the south are well worth a visit, as are Carcassonne and Narbonne. Shame there is no shop in the village for the morning croissants, but there's a good little supermarket 10-15mins drive away, which includes an excellent boulangerie. We rarely visit the same place twice, but I could easily be tempted back here...!
Embres Et Castlemaure
By Phillip E on 07-Nov-2013
We (M&D + 4 children) had a great time staying in Embres et Castelmaure. The accommodation is superbly appointed with everything a holidaying family could want. The villa was clean and well maintained and the local agent was really helpful with everything we could want. We felt the villa owners really wanted us to enjoy ourselves and provided great support before, during and even after we were on holiday. The children had a great time in the pool, Dad was a regular at the local wine cave 5 minutes walk away and Mum watched from the balcony with a drink in hand. We toured the local area, went to the beach and visited Carcassonne. Definitely need a car as it's in a delightful, rural location.
