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!
The house is well presented, set in an easy care landscaped garden with large, heated & covered swimming pool. The extra accommodation annex, set apart from the house, provided a quiet and private escape for an extended family or extra guests.
This is a modern single storey villa (hard to find in France, but ideal for those with limited mobility), that has a galley kitchen and delightful garden conservatory/dining room overlooking the pool and where we spent most of our time.
The main bedroom has a comfortable, queen-size bed and large wardrobes and there is a second bedroom in the main house. The large lounge area provided ample space to relax and watch television, although with limited English-speaking channels.
A second refrigerator and toilet in the laundry area behind the single garage were a welcome bonus.
An outside garden table and chairs would be a welcome addition for evening drinks around the pool.
When we arrived we had a warm welcome from the owner, Thierry, and the gifts of wine, jam and fruit juice were much appreciated.
We thoroughly enjoyed our one-month stay and plan to re-visit in the future.
