This delightful renovated 2-bedroom stone house with roof terrace and outside courtyard offers a wonderful way to experience the French lifestyle.
Located in the heart of one of the most sought after and unspoilt areas of the department, in an authentic Languedocienne working village nestled between the mountains of the Languedoc National Park and the Mediterranean Sea. Autignac is a quiet and easily accessible village of the Faugères appellation close to the Languedoc National Park.
This property has been completely and tastefully renovated in 2004. Lying right in the centre of the village on the site of the original 11th century fort, it is a cozy typical stone village house on three floors.
Ground floor: bathroom with toilet, laundry area - dining area – full kitchen with dishwasher opening onto the courtyard. The courtyard is ideal for having dinners al fresco in the balmy temperature of southern France. There is an outside light but we generally prefer the ambience of candlelight. There are also two bikes available for your use.
First floor: Lounge - The lounge has a spacious feel. The floor is tiled and there is a wood burning stove. There is a DVD player and a TV which receives free to air channels including BBC / Sky News and some movie channels. On one side of the lounge is a sofa bed which folds easily into a comfortable full sized double bed. Beside the lounge is a bedroom with double bed, dresser and en-suite bathroom.

The house is 30 paces from the local bakers (boulangerie), butcher and bar/café and a stones throw from the local general store. There is everything you need right in the village including school, post office, pharmacy, doctor, weekly visiting fish and shellfish vans from the coast and cheese and pizza vans, plus a twice-weekly fresh vegetable and produce market. The nearest supermarket is just 6 minutes by car.
The village has no direct through road making it calm and peaceful. It is certainly one of the most unspoilt and charming working villages in the area, surrounded by the beautiful rolling vineyards of the famous Faugères winemaking area. The walks within minutes of leaving the village in almost any direction are superb.
