Situated in the Minervois wine region, the cottage is designed to reflect its viticultural history. The cream-colored walls of the Wine Cottage and Barrel Barn change hue with the glorious South of France light, complementing a ‘harvest’ palette of ochre, red, orange, purple, gold, silver and bronze contemporary and antique furnishings. Floors of modern and antique tiles ground the interesting mix of decorative items of glass, mirror, wood and metal – many of which are vintage winemaking and agricultural items -- adorn the space.

The units are joined by an internal door in the WINE COTTAGE kitchen and exterior door in the courtyard that separates the WINE COTTAGE and BARN BARREL.
