House Details

  • Sleeps: 4 to 6
  • Bedrooms: 1 double & 1 Twin

Constantia is a traditional ivy-covered village property overlooking the Canal du Midi in the enchanting hamlet of le Somail. One of the most picturesque bridges in France straddles the canal which is home to a colourful flotilla of pleasure craft, and is now designated a World Heritage Site. Behind the house the vast vineyards of the Minervois stretch away north to the Montagne Noire, and to the west orchards of peach and nectarine provide delicious fresh fruit in season. There are three excellent canalside restaurants in Somail, a supermarket is just 2kms away, the lovely old town of Narbonne 13kms, and the Mediterranean beaches 26kms.

House interior

A wooden staircase leads from the entrance up to its two bedrooms. The accommodation is all on the first floor over an unused wine storage facility and the pool can be accessed either from the terrace or the entrance hall. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom with bath and shower, whilst opposite the twin bedroom is a bathroom with shower. Across the landing is a magnificent split-level open plan living area with traditional beamed ceiling and windows on three sides. The well-equipped kitchen has a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, electric oven and gas hob.

French windows open onto the roof terrace with barbeque, garden furniture and views across the vineyards. There is a washing machine in a third bathroom on the ground floor. The Minervois Cruisers office is next door so help and advice is always available.
