About the villa

From the outside, this centuries-old wine ‘cuve’ is still sturdily, albeit beautifully, traditional. So the inside comes as a sublime surprise, right from the double height reception hall, bright white and minimalist, to the sleek steel and clean lines of the kitchen/diner, and the airy living room with huge white sofas, silvery blue fabrics, an old stone fireplace and convivial bar. A fabulous place for get-togethers of family and friends, the house also has a cinema room and an informal TV/games room, its built-in benches piled with cushions.  Bedrooms are stylishly furnished and artfully uncluttered. Six in the main house include the romantic master suite with its in-room bath and en suite shower, while two in the Guest Apartment share a handy kitchenette. Outside are lavender scented gardens, a shaded terrace for lunching and lounging, and a courtyard with al fresco kitchen and 18th century fireplace, perfect for barbecues under the stars. La Cuve also boasts a private tennis court and swimming pool, and is perfectly placed for a feast of outdoor pursuits. It is 12km from restaurants and shops in the villages of Lagrasse and Fabrezan.

About the area

Languedoc

Average weather

It’s surprisingly less visited than some of the other southern hotspots, but this cypress-sculpted wine country is the pretty French Tuscany that we should all know and love. Some of the wildest beaches sweep its glorious Mediterranean coastline, while its rolling winelands are the biggest in the whole of France. A villa stay in the Languedoc is just the start of an epic journey – stretching from Provence to the Pyrenees, holidays here combine gourmet food and wine with a whole lot of nature, culture and history. Sun-baked Carcassonne is a storybook wonder in the west, while crimson-coloured Roussillon is your gateway to French Catalonia. Tapas bars and paella reign in peach-perfect Perpignan, and there’s plenty of Spanish culture in corrida-loving Béziers, too.
