Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Nature's Pace Holidays, Montmaur, Occitanie, France, sleeps 2-24 in 10 bedrooms.

Sleeps 2 to 24 in 4 gites and 2 glamping tents:
Corbieres sleeps up to 8
Minervois sleeps up to 6
Cabardes and Fitou each sleep 2, ideal for couples or small families
2 tents sleep 2 to 4 each

At Nature's Pace Holidays we offer a personal touch to give our guests time and space to connect with nature and each other. A place to unwind and relax.

Both the tents and the gites have comfortable interiors and kitchens are equipped to help you make the most of the local food. Beds are made ready for your arrival and shower rooms have fresh towels. Enjoy eating outside on the warm summer evenings in private gardens and terraces with barbecues.

The gites share a heated swimming pool, a wild meadow and children’s play areas . There are many outdoor spaces: secluded seating throughout with hammocks, sun loungers, tables and chairs in lots of different spots to enjoy the views and beautiful spaces, comfortable seating in our shaded barn area and a separate enclosed terrace for reading a book or enjoying a glass of wine.

The terrace and barn can accommodate large groups to eat together or in the summer set up a table in the grounds among the trees overlooking the meadow.

We will also have a small on-site shop for those essential items as well as many local products including wine, beer, jam and olive oil.

The relatively undiscovered Lauragais region offers many opportunities for experiencing the slower pace of rural French life. We can help your group create these experiences; perhaps take a walk through the countryside to visit our local olive farmer to share an afternoon of olive oil tasting and stories of the family farm ending with a glass of rose among the olive trees overlooking the Montagne Noir in the distance. . For a more active day out there is swimming or watersports at our local lakes or a leisurely (or not!) cycle ride along the Canal du Midi.

This is our home so we will be around to try to help you with your questions and to help you to make your stay what you want it to be.
