Maison Bize

Located in Bize-Minervois in the Southwest of France

Here’s your opportunity to own a share of a 200-year-old beautifully restored village house set in a romantic, medieval riverside village, surrounded by vines and olive groves just a short distance from the Mediterranean Sea.

The River Cesse runs through the village and provides an idyllic, freshwater swimming hole with crystal clear, mountain water and a pebbled beach area, just a two-minute walk from the house. It’s a perfect spot for a refreshing dip or for families with children as there is a lifeguard on hand in the summer months.
