Welcome to our French House

Our beautiful village home is in the LANGUEDOC region of France, the largest vineyard in the world. The house is in the village of Sallèles d’Aude, astride the Canal du Midi which connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea. Seven locks slow the passage of the barges through the village and entertain the local folk as they sit, a row of spectators on a bench.

We have lovingly renovated our home here, using the lazy heat of summer days to sand, paint and restore each room. The local red wine and fresh market produce are the reward in the late evenings under the mulberry tree on the terrace.

If you have ever watched chef Rick Stein’s show on the foodie channel, you will have seen him explore this rich area by barge for food and pleasure. Why not come and share this special lifestyle, if only for a little while.......
