We have a one-sixth share of a house in the village of Montouliers in the south of France. The village is about half-an-hour's drive east of Carcassonne and about the same distance west of Beziers.

As another web site puts it:
"A century and a half of charm pervades this beautifully remodeled home in the Languedoc region of southern France. Distinctive features such as exposed wood beams, original stone walls and wood floors have been lovingly restored.

The three-story house has two en-suite bedrooms and is completely furnished. Antiques in harmony with the character of the house and reproductions of Louis XVI-style chairs are part of the furnishings and are completmented with modern functional pieces. The result: a home that combines taste, comfort and the flavour of France.

The kitchen is fully equipped, and all bath fixtures are modern.

On the top floor a sunroom with wet bar and stone sink adjoins a sunny, roomy terrace with views of the village rooftops and the belfry of the old church.

La Placette is in the heart of the picturesque hillside village of Montouliers. Here, in the southern reaches of the Minervois region, vineyards hug the sunny slopes and stretch across the plains. It's an ideal headquarters for exploring. One can drive from La Placette to Mediterranean beaches in an hour, to Provence in a couple of hours, and to Toulouse with its big-city attractions in two hours."
