The ancient fortified village of Minerve is only 7km from Paguignan. Away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the village is surrounded by vineyards and stunning countryside.

The house is approached from the drive (space for three cars) at one end of the garden. As you walk up to the house, you'll notice the free-form swimming pool (10mt long) and the ancient olive tree beside it. The house is surrounded by terraces, so you can make the most of the outdoor living. The name of the house comes from the fact that it is built on the site of a Roman oppidum. From parts of the garden there are wonderful views over the countryside. There are many interesting walks and hikes in the immediate vicinity. Seven adult bicycles are available for guests free of charge. The owner lives next door and is able to cater lunches or dinners for you.

The front door leads into the living room, which is furnished with sofa and easy chairs, coffee table, Television, DVD player and a CD/radio/cassette player. The dining area is furnished with a large dining table and chairs, and a traditional buffet.
