To reach the Le Ramonétage cottage in the outskirts of Quarante, you will definitely need your GPS, or you will get lost in the vineyard maze. Once you have reached your holiday destination, however, you will find yourself in a magnificent setting. This typical local house will welcome you in great style and has everything to make your stay comfortable. With room for up to four people, the place is ideal for some serious winding down! P.s. all pictures were taken by Domaine De Delfi.
Ramonet and Ramoneta
In the old days, a ramonétage served as a home for the farm manager and his wife, called Ramonet and Ramoneta in the South of France. So, when I found this charming holiday home with its name relating to this blog, I simply had to check it out! This ramonétage is part of the wine estate Domaine De Delfi, which has been in the same family for three generations. And now, the cute, white farmhouse in the middle of vineyards has been tastefully transformed into an enjoyable gîte. I was warmly welcomed by Fleur, the youngest member of the family, who now runs the estate.
Although the holiday home is of modest size, its 100 square meters has everything you will need on your vacation. You enter the house through the bright living room, with a relaxing couch and a large table with room for six people. The modern styling goes perfectly with the traditional elements. And I love the little details that give the house a personal touch, like the enlarged pictures of Fleur’s grandparents picking grapes in the 1960s. The fully equipped kitchen includes a washing machine and dryer. On top of that, the master bedroom is on the ground floor and has a bathtub that overlooks the French countryside. The first floor has another bedroom with two single beds and a bathroom.
When holidaying in France, you will probably spend most of your time outside relishing the excellent weather. At Le Ramonétage of Domaine De Delfi this is made easy with an inviting terrace overlooking the pool. Besides all this chilling, there are plenty of fun areas to explore in the region. You can do your daily shopping in lovely Capestang or visit the lively Friday market in Puisserguier. Le Ramonétage is right in the middle between Béziers and Narbonne, 25 kilometres to either town. And driving just over half an hour will bring you to the ever blue Med. Living the French dream has never been easier!
