We were seduced by the Domaine de Puychêne, a former wine estate, ideally located in a village in the Aude (Saint-Nazaire d’Aude), a few minutes from the Canal du Midi, between Corbières and Minervois, close to the very pretty town of Narbonneand a few kilometers fromthe Mediterranean Sea. We offer rentals of houses and villas with private gardens. It is easily accessible by train (Paris is 4 hours and a half and Narbonne train station is approximately 20 minutes), plane (airports of Montpellier, Béziers, Carcassonne, Perpignan, Girona, Barcelona) or the road (the A9 and A62 motorways are approximately 20 minutes away). During your walks, you will be conquered by the beauty of the natural sites and by the richness of the cultural and oenological heritage of Languedoc Roussillon where the sun shines 300 days a year.
We fell in love with the Domaine, the charm of its 19th century architecture, the tower and its old dovecote, the old stone outbuildings, the wrought iron gates and gates and its wooded park. The atmosphere that emanates from this noble residence is simple, elegant and restful. In the past, the chatelains produced wine there and the newlyweds of the village had their photos taken under the magnificent 300-year-old oak, a symbol of longevity. This majestic oak tree and the Domaine’s well have inspired us its name : PUYCHENE. It’s a great place to live.
With the help of an architect, we have renovated it with care, retaining the old wine vats, the exposed stone facades, the dovecote in the tower, the old terracotta tiles, the beams, the fireplaces. Our 10 house and villa rentals have been designed to offer you, in a green and calm setting, comfortable, functional and warm vacation spots, like a family home, with a swimming pool (heated in May, June, September and October, weather permitting) to relax and refresh you. Each house and gîte, consisting of a ground floor, a first floor and a private garden, has its own character, its own furniture and has been carefully furnished for your comfort.
We have created, with a landscaperelected in 2004 “Meilleur Ouvrier de France en Arts des Jardins” (distinction awarded by their peers to the best craftsmen in France), gardens bringing together varied, colorful and scented species offering a flowery atmosphere throughout. seasons. Passionnée de plantes méditerranéennes elle a eu un coup de cœur pour notre projet.
Between two getaways, you can relax by the Domaine’s swimming pool, a place of relaxation and conviviality. Your children will play and swim with their classmates in complete safety, with the property closed and the swimming pool protected. Your car will be parked in a private car park inside the domain.
