The Holiday home

BelleBize' - this uniquely charming stone house has retained its typical eighteenth-century features (elegant terracotta tiles, large rooms, high ceilings, marble fireplaces, delicate old door handles and many other beautiful details). The house overlooks the river 'La Cesse' and its bathing area, where the locals swim in the crystal clear water and sunbathe on the shore in summer. The house has been completely renovated to a high standard and is charmingly and completely new furnished in Mediterranean French style. Beautiful roses and lavender grow on the side of the house and underline the extraordinary charm of the romantic house style.

The terrace in front of the house with table, six chairs and a comfortable sitting lounge offers a unique view over the river and the village. The door leads from the terrace directly into the kitchen and the living room and offers a unique setting to enjoy your holidays. The architecture with the natural stones and the many special details inside the house are simply wonderful. With its old doors, the old door locks, the high ceilings, the stone walls in some rooms inside, the old squiggled window handles ... there is a lot more to be mentioned. When you sit on the terrace of BelleBize with a glass of wine, looking across the river and just enjoying the moment, you understand what we mean.

The location of the house is absolutely unique. It overlooks the river 'La Cesse'. Already when you sit at the breakfast table (whether in the house or on the terrace), you can enjoy the wonderful view over the river to the village. In summer the river offers a truly unique bathing place right in front of the house. Use it to jump directly across the street with your swimming trunks into the refreshing river water. It is really an extraordinary experience to take a refreshing bath in this natural environment. The willows with their hanging branches invite you to a relaxing yoga session in the early morning hours with a view of the water - what a backdrop! The first foothills of the Cevennes are right behind the house. Cycling tours of all levels of difficulty are possible. A few minutes away from the house there is a riding stable.

The French have preserved this "je ne sais quoi": in their hearts, in their lifestyle, but also in the furnishings and decoration of their homes. The so-called "French Chic" stands like no other for good taste and sense of style. We took up this style when we designed "BelleBize". The French style interior not only looks great, it is a look for all the senses. The living room, the bedrooms - furnished in Mediterranean French chic - radiate warmth, smell of lavender, taste of Mediterranean wine and sweet latte. Tables, seating and beds score points with exceptional chic and that certain something

The house with its spacious construction is the perfect opportunity to spend a relaxing time. Whether for a multigenerational holiday, for the family or for cosy togetherness.

Location and surroundings of object

Bize Minervois is a pretty little town with a clean river flowing through it, offering a dazzling variety of possibilities. There are four restaurants, a bar, a post office, a pharmacy, two very good bakeries and a supermarket. A stroll through the narrow streets of Bize Minervois or one of the other smaller towns in the area is almost like a journey into the past. A past with history, charm and a special feeling for all the beautiful things in life. You will live directly by the river with a wonderful bathing place

The centre of Bize Minervois is a church from the 13th century. Bize Minervois is part of the Minervois region, which also includes the charming village of Minerve 10 km to the north, which stretches across two deep river gorges and was the scene of a famous siege and the martyrdom of the Cathars by Simon de Montford. The famous Canal du Midi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is only 10 minutes away. The canal winds its way through the region and you can hire a boat for a romantic and relaxing cruise. Alternatively, you can relax in waterfront cafes and bars and watch the world go by.

Bize Minervois is located in the heart of the Occitanie region (formerly Languedoc Roussillon) - one of the sunniest areas in France with over 300 days of sunshine a year. It is close to Narbonne, Beziers, Minerve, Carcassonne and 35 minutes to the Mediterranean Sea and its beaches. Bize Minervois has about 1100 inhabitants, of which about 300 are British. A good place to immerse yourself in rural French village life and enjoy this beautiful region. Nearby is the shop Oulibo - a cooperative that produces some of the best olives and olive oils in France. Every Wednesday there is a small, typical French weekly market in the village.

We are a German family that lives in Germany most of the year. We saw this house on vacation and immediately fell in love with it. The unique location at the river, the architecture with the stones and the many special details inside the house are just wonderful
Especially the location is absolutely unique. It overlooks the river Cesse. Already when you sit at the breakfast table (whether in the house or on the terrace), you can enjoy the wonderful view over the river to the village. In summer the river offers a really unique bathing place directly in front of the house. Heike is a rider and has already found her favourite horse in a horse stable just a few minutes away.
