Rieux Minervois, Carcassonne, Aude, Occitanie
Maison Galloise is a large family Villa set within an acre of land with secure front gates leading from the Vineyard into a private, spacious front garden with secure parking for several cars. There is an extensive rear and side garden with fruit trees and great outside 'play' area for children and adults alike.

The villa boasts a very private swimming pool which is heated early and late summer up to 24 degrees.
