This house in a living, wine-producing village offers an authentic French experience. Tucked away on a small square behind the church, the house is a few minutes walk away from the village shops (baker, butcher, grocer, tabac etc.) and twice-weekly market. You can walk or cycle (bikes have to be hired) for miles through vineyards, over hills, or along the Canal du Midi.

Wonderful house, full of character, space and light. Cruzy is a pretty village, with baker, butcher, grocery and tabac as well as fresh produce on market stalls most days. Good base for seeing the region and swimming in lake, river and sea.

We enjoyed a candle-lit dinner in the vast loft space with views across the rolling vinyards....
