The Little French Maison sits within the fortifications of the medieval village of Conques sur Orbiel. A typical French village house, tucked into a narrow street sitting in the shade from the Mediterranean sun, has beautiful views past the original 15th century tower towards the Black Mountains. Restored to celebrate the house's original features, The Little French Maison sleeps six in three double bedrooms, with two bathrooms, a generous kitchen and living room. It has a ground floor laundry room which is a perfect place to store bicycles safely.
