‘La Petite Gemme' - a cosy village house, nestled close to the quaint, preserved, historical village square surrounded by lovely views, is indeed a little gem situated in the heart of the beautiful Aude Valley — ideal for secure lock-up-and-leave, for letting, or simply as a peaceful retreat. La Petite Gemme is able to accommodate a maximum of 6 adults, plus a child or two, inside its sturdy walls. It also has a private, little outdoor rooftop terrace for lazy breakfasts or reading, plus a spacious bathroom with a full-sized bath.
We’ve enjoyed this house for over 9 years now, have carefully maintained the interior, and added some new furniture. Now, with advancing age, reluctantly it’s time for us to simplify our lives, and look for 'sympa' new owners to add their own personal touches. Maybe it’s you! This house is ready to embrace you.
