Our residential course accommodation in Languedoc, France
La Maison Verte has a variety of residential course accommodation on offer to organisers in the Languedoc region of south France, all of which is contained within the acre or so of the property. All course accommodation gives on to the central courtyard so that course participants are never more than a few metres, or a few flights of stairs, away from their rooms.
In the summer the four apartments are sometimes available for independent rent, with the agreement of the visiting course organisers. More often than not guests renting the apartments alongside the course, and participants of courses, find this arrangement sociable and fun, and certainly it adds a positive dimension to everyone’s stay here.
The Main House
The house retains all the character of its heyday as the chief mansion of the village. Chandeliers, tiled floors, and wood-burning stoves abound. A kitchen and large reception rooms service the 11 bedrooms, which can sleep a maximum of 18 people (minimum booking for the house is 9). Here is how the accommodation breaks down:
On the top floor of the house, where the attic and servants quarters used to be, there are now:
- 2 double bedded rooms,
- 3 twin bedded rooms
- 2 single rooms sharing between them 3 shower rooms
Views from these rooms are spectacular – of the mountains and villages to the north and as far as the Mediterranean (on a clear day) to the south. The first floor of the house is where in the 19th and early 20th centuries the original family of the house would have had their rooms. There are:
- 1 large double rooms (ensuite)
- 2 twin bedded rooms (ensuite)
- And 1 single room
This charming suite of bedrooms on the courtyard level of the main house used to be the family quarters and faces directly onto the courtyard and garden. It comprises a large bedroom/living room (9m x 5m), two smaller double bedrooms and a shower room. This section of course accommodation comprises:
- A large bedroom/living room (9m x 5m)
- One small double bedroom,
- Shower room
- The living area has facilities for dining and a fridge but no kitchen is directly attached
In terms of course accommodation, often organisers choose to base themselves in the Garden Apartment as it provides space for planning, and a bolt hole during the week for private rest.
The Garden Apartment is occasionally available for independent rental from €400 per week, and it is for those who would rather let others cook for them at the wonderful local restaurants.
