The house is situated in a quiet part of a village typical of rural Southern France. It has recently been thoroughly renovated to a high standard whilst retaining the character and softeness of the building's rustic origins.

While retaining many period features the accommodation is luxurious and offers modern conveniences. Recent refurbishment has used top quality natural materials making use of the local chestnut wood, recycled oak and also cedar - a customary local wood dating from the Crusades, when it was found that cedar not only provided a wonderful fresh subtle aroma, but also deterred insects. While retaining many of its original features such as exposed beams, window fastenings, large quarry floor tiles and canal-tile roof. The walls are rendered with natrural lime plaster. Even the insulation is natural hemp.

It is also a delicious room in which to sit quietely and listen to the sheep, chickens and other sounds of the countryside - such as the church bells which ring twice on the hour in line with local custom.

The village is amongst the sunniest of the region perched on a small plateau with a view of rolling cultivated fields with a view of Rennes le Château to the North and wild forests and the Pyrennees to the south. Thousands of kilometres of hiking start at the doorstep.

The village is typical of the region, with narrow lanes and architecture in local stone dating back to a bastide built on the site in the year 1300. There is a renaissance fortified castle next to the house.. To the West lies the Pech [peak] de St-Ferriol, and to the south the Ruisseau [stream] de St-Ferriol.
