My wife and I were searching for a French property to buy and booked this Moussan vIllage home for its good location near many of the properties we had lined up to view.
The quirky old layout of this home built into the stone heart of the village is enhanced by a very modern renovation that provides most of the mod cons anyone would require (short of a dishwaher I suppose). There is a really beautiful outdoor terrace with a plung pool/large hot tub (closed in Dec obviously) and this ambiance is truly 5 star French!
In the bedrooms, there are comfortable beds, and auto lighting is helpful to get to the very nice bathroom in the night.
Pros are numerous:
-beautiful outdoor space
-very clean and modern space
-most mod cons including good internet
-super low to the floor sofa in lounge is quite uncomfortable
-frustratingly obtuse entertainment situation (and I’m a high tech geek!) featuring a receiver and speakers around the house with nothing to play aside from a second DVD player (?)
Overall we enjoyed this peaceful village house and found it well situated to explore this part of Languedoc!
There was a lot more to do in the small village of Le Somail than we thought there would be. From boating down the canal to hiking the trails, to exploring the surrounding areas, my husband and I had plenty to see and do. We were pleasantly pleased with the amount of fine food and wine available in Le Somail as well. What a great way to spend two weeks in France in the Spring!
