Languedoc holiday accommodation with pool - this large family villa is located in the rural south west within easy reach of local amenities and just a 30 minute drive from the lovely city of Toulouse. Built in 1843, of stone with striking red brick detail, this traditional farmhouse has been renovated to provide a luxury country villa. The spacious accommodation is split into two self contained wings, providing the ideal holiday destination for large groups providing facilities for the group to come together in the West wing, whilst at the same time providing plenty of space for those who seek space away from the group. Each wing is furnished to the same exacting standards, enhancing many original features, whilst ensuring the whole property meets modern day demands.
Lauragaise is set on a hillside, close to woodland in the delightful Haute Garonne countryside. The local area is well served by country restaurants, and the nearby traditional town of Villefranche de Lauragais has a weekly market. There are lakes close by this family villa in Languedoc, offering various water sports, as well as popular trips on the Canal du Midi.
This is a no smoking property - although smoking is permitted outside. The discreet owners live in the gatehouse at the entrance to the grounds and are available to help if required. They can provide full catering or gourmet meal service.
This house is lovely, its one of my favourites. Gorgeous bedrooms, massive lounge, terraces and the garden is divine with stunning views. Apart from that one of the owners is a superb cook and offers mouth-watering menus and great cuisine. His wife is a sommelier so you can be sure of excellent food and fine wines.Highly recommend that a meal (or more) is booked while you are there. A lovely property that will ensure a memorable holiday.

The villa is superbly appointed,
We all had a wonderful stay (..), in spite of pretty ropey weather! The villa is superbly appointed, very comfortable rooms, a lovely pool, and a kitchen so stuffed with gadgets that we had to google the instructions to know how to drive some of them! And the Caretakers could not have been more helpful and charming.
very well equipped
The owners are lovely people who made our family feel very welcome while allowing us the right amount of privacy. They thought of everything to enhance our holiday experience, even down to robes in the ensuites! The house is amazing, much bigger than expected. The kitchen, number of bathrooms, children's playroom (including ping-pong table!), outside eating area, living room with double height ceiling, piano in study....everything exceeded our expectations! We stayed in a similar villa in Tuscany last year but this property was far better, at some point we will be back..
