Large Holiday House in the beautiful little village of Soubès Languedoc Roussillon, France

The House

The house is located on the Place de la Fontaine in the very centre of the village of Soubès.  It is what the French call a “grande maison de village”, a large village house.  Indeed, the locals refer to it as “the big house” probably both for its size and its prominent location.  Fountain House has four storeys available for use.  There is a fifth under the ground.  It contains a wine press from who knows how long ago.  We aren’t sure how old the house is; the public record doesn’t go back that far.  Some of the neighbours think it was built about the same time as the church, since like it, many of the stones from the mediaeval ramparts have found their way into our walls.

The house is old, but everything in it is new.  This includes the wiring, plumbing and the heating and hot water systems.  Double glazed windows and central heating that operates through a network of hot water pipes with individually controlled radiators at every level mean that you will be very comfortable and have ample hot water whatever the season.

You will enjoy discovering that the house is a home; it is not furnished or equipped as a holiday house.  There are dishes, glasses, etc. for twelve and we think that you will find everything that you would have in your own home from electric mixer to blankets for lying on the couches to watch television or to read one of the novels left there for just that moment at the end of a long day when you are ready to unwind.

Ground level;  There are two entries.  On the fountain side of the house stairs lead up to the first floor or down to the summer room and a full bathroom with basin, toilet, and shower.   The summer room provides a large entertainment area, which can be opened onto the street, since two of the three panels of the exterior door open.  The summer room table seats eight.  There are two easy chairs and a fold up double bed that also serves as a very comfortable couch.

First Floor;  The first floor is the main living area.  The dining room table comfortably seats ten.  There are two triple couches. There is a television with satellite subscription and a DVD player.  The kitchen has everything – dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster and so on…..

Second Floor; There is a queen size bed in the large bedroom, which also has an easy chair and dresser.  There is a sleeping alcove with a single bed.  The larger bathroom is on this level. The washing machine and dryer are located here. There is a separate WC.

Third Floor; The third floor has a small open entertainment area with a couch, television and DVD player.  There is a half bathroom, no shower, but there is a large basin, toilet and cabinets.  There is a twin bedroom. The other third floor bedroom has a couch that can turned into a single bed and a single bed in a loft.
