Villa du Lac is a very well presented villa immaculately decorated and maintained. Located on this very popular residential development because of its close proximity to the beautiful Lac Jouarres and the Canal du Midi.
The Port Minervois development has a number of small villas surrounding a central swimming pool area, as well as a bar/cafe and small shop all within a couple of minutes walk of the villa.
The development is only a short walk to the large Lac Jouarres where lots of water sports are available for the children, a safe swimming area and lots of lawned areas surrounding the Lac where you can enjoy a family picnic under the trees, or you can sit at the lovely restaurant overlooking the lake
The development is well kept with lovely grounds and is secure with access via electronically operated gates.
A single parking space belongs to the villa for one car.
The villa also has a private, well manicured garden with lawned area and shrub planing, as well as 2 terraces one under cover and one open.
There are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and a small but well designed kitchen which was newly fitted and upgraded in 2017.
The owner spends a lot of the time here himself, so it boasts many of his own personal possessions shipped in from the USA.
