Tucked away from the hassle of big cities, coastal urbanisations, and dense traffic, St-Paul-de-Fenouillet is a hidden gem. Not a brushed beauty, but a small town with a character, where French country life runs undisturbed.

Here, men still wear woolen caps, carry the baguette under the arm, and meet under the Platan trees of the Place de la République at early mornings for a strong shot of black coffee or a glass of rouge in the early evening. In summer, tourists flock the square, hiking or biking the Gorges de Galamus.

Only a few steps away, on the northern end of the heritage-preseved old town with their laneways and the landmark tower of le chapître , you will find a 270 year old, charming house in a cul-de-sac street with hardly any traffic. Unpretentious from the outside, it is a unique gem inside, making you feel at home under the century old oak beams.

When looking out through the windows, your eyes will see the rugged edges of the chaîne de Lesquerde mountain ridge, the clay roofs of old homes, and millions of vineyards stretching out on the floodplains of the Agly river and the rolling Corbières hills.

All Infos on the House

Please not: My house is not a commercial holiday home, but is the place where I live when I am in France and not travelling the globe or working in Hamburg . It’s thus a true home away from home, better equipped, with more atmosphere and amenities than in standard gîtes.

Due to the staircase linking the entrance area to the bathroom/bedrooms section and the top floor with the living room, open kitchen and garden terrace, it is not suitable for families with children. Pets are not allowed.

Please find all pieces of information when clicking the links.
