GRENACHE & SYRAH
Holiday Villas in the Corbières
Grenache and Syrah are two modern villas situated in the peaceful village of Embres et Castelmaure - a small hamlet, in the heart of the Corbière region set amongst the beautiful vineyards in the Garrigue.
Built in 2010, the villas are designed in an upside down fashion with ceiling to floor windows on the first floor giving a light and airy family living space and offering cool bedrooms below - perfect for the height of the summer. The villas are equipped with many modern luxuries to help make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Once outside the house you step into a simple, tranquil typically French rural village, serviced only by a daily bread van and a weekly fruit, veg and meat van...but more importantly housing a fantastic wine cave which is open daily!
We hope that you find all the information you need about our villas and this beautiful area of France.
The villas are located down a small road at the start of the village and share a driveway with each other. Syrah is the first villa on the left and Grenache is the second at the end of the driveway. The villas are identical in terms of what they offer inside and out - the only differences are that Syrah has a slightly larger outside space, however Grenache offers a little more privacy. The choice is yours when you book with us (subject to availability).
There are two twin bedrooms in the villas. They have large windows facing the garden with access outside, perfect for getting straight into the pool at the start of the day!
The master bedroom has a large window looking out to the garden and pool, perfect for a relaxing morning with a great view of the Corbière mountains and vineyards.
There are two bathrooms in the villas, a family one and an ensuite in the master bedroom. Both have modern amenities - including a walk in wet room.
First Floor Living
The villas provide a large open plan living area on the first floor. The kitchen is well equipped so that you can rustle up any family meal during your stay - however if eating out is more your thing then there are several options in the local area! The lounge area can be great for a late evening mint tea (fresh from the herb box!) and a family board game, or a watch of your favourite film - with a variety of dvd's available.
Whilst there is a lot to see and do in the local area, there is no better way to enjoy your holiday than relaxing by the pool, soaking up the sun and taking in the beautiful scenery of the Corbières. Plug in your headphones on a sun lounger, grab a book and sit under the shade of the gazebo or play cards on the balcony with a drink and some nibbles. And of course when the sun is at its peak, plunge in to the pool for a refreshing swim or pool game!
