At the top of the steps you enter the house either through the kitchen or sunlounge, and from here you also have direct access to the large south facing front terrace with large dining table and chairs for up to 8.
The main front door leads in to the beautiful, large kitchen and dining room. The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas cooker and oven, dish washer, fridge freezer, large kitchen island with granit tops throughout. The lovely old dining table actually seats up to 8.

Down in the courtyard there is the cellar which has a washing machine and a second fridge should you need it.
Going up the old wooden stairs to the landing you have a house bathroom with toilet, basin and bath with shower over, 2 smaller double bedrooms which do have low beamed ceilings and the master bedroom with a private shower, wash basin and toilet.

In de buurt
Le Vivier is a small village dominated by the ruins of the old chateau and nestles in the foothills of the Pyrenees. It is approximately 11kms from the main road of the D117 and the village of Caudies de Fenouilledes. In Caudies you will find some small basic shops, there’s a boulangerie, butchers, small village store, bar with restaurant and a small weekly market offering fresh fruit and vegetables. The neighbouring small town of Saint Paul de Fenouillet is 6kms from Caudies but here you will find a larger weekly market, good sized Carrefour supermarket with fuel station, 2 banks, a couple of restaurants and bars and a well stocked tabac plus a couple of boulangeries.
Perpignan is approximately 1 hrs drive and Carcassonne about 1hr 20.

Culinair en wijn
In general this area is quite quiet, even in August. It has to be one of the last places where tourism has not really hit, until you reach the coast. There are quite a few restaurants in the surrounding areas but you will need to drive. If you like your wines however, you will be spoiled for choice as every village that makes wine will generally have a wine cave where you can go and taste their product and then buy directly from them, saving on supermarket prices which actually are not that bad anyway.
Wat is er te doen
Although there are no shops or activities in the village of Le Vivier, it is a great base from which to explore. A lazy day lounging in the garden and by the pool can be as much fun as being out and about. If you like walking and being in nature there are some beautiful walks in some lovely countryside all around the village. If you do feel the need for some activities there are things to do. There is an activity centre just outside Caudies where you can swim and go horse riding, you can go rock climbing in Saint Paul, there is white water rafting in Axat, you can take the little red train all the way down the valley from Axat to Rivesaltes, for history lovers you have have a choice of 3 well preserved Cathare castles perched on the mountains offering spectacular views, the coast is only just over an hour away as are the ski slopes for summer walking and for the wine lovers, there is a huge choice of vineyards where you can go and taste to see which wines suit your taste and decide which ones you may wish to take home with you so long after your holiday has ended, you can simply open a bottle of wine you bought from our region to remind yourself of that lovely holiday you spent in Maison Blanche and Le Vivier.
