Described as 'Fifty Acres of Freedom' Le Linas could be the answer to all your naturist holiday dreams.
Imagine making your way up a winding mountain track in the beautiful Minervois region of southern France.
You arrive at a little mountain hamlet, a collection of ancient stone buildings with a backdrop of hills and forest. You have arrived at Le Linas!
Extremely peaceful and very private, the hamlet used to be home to fifty people. Now a naturist retreat, it has been lovingly restored by owners, Adrian and Lesley.
Retaining much of its traditional style and charm, modern features have been sympathetically added to ensure your relaxation and comfort.
This is such wonderful countryside. Within the fifty acres of grounds you will find forest, streams, hills and valleys, with an incredible amount of wildlife.
During your naturist wanderings around the area you could possibly see deer, badgers and even wild boar, an amazing sight! There are also beautiful birds of prey such as buzzards and sparrow hawks, and a wide variety of fauna and flora.
In other words, during your holiday at Le Linas you can completely relax in the knowledge that there will be absolutely no noise or light pollution, with the added bonus of being able to do as little or as much as you please.
The buildings, which reflect the history of the hamlet, are of a variety of styles and size, some having three foot thick walls and slate floors. This ensures a comfortable indoor temperature even when the temperature outside could be in the thirties (degrees centigrade). Time for a refreshing swim in the pool on the terrace!
The accommodation is of a very high standard. All the gites have very comfortable furniture, the kitchens are modern with all the necessary appliances and utensils, and there are lovely hot showers in the bathrooms.
All the gites are let by the week on a self catering basis, the normal letting season being from June 1st - 31st August. Included in the rentals are linen, bath/hand/pool towels, electricity, gas, water, heating and cleaning.
The biggest of the gites, 'Le Grand Gite', sleeps six people in one double and two twin bedrooms. There is one shower room and one bathroom, each with a toilet and also two reception rooms and a kitchen.
'Le Petit Gite' sleeps four people in one double and one twin bedroom. There are two shower and toilet rooms. The rest of the gite comprises of a large reception room with a gallery, a kitchen, and your own private terrace overlooking the pool.
The third gite 'Le Chalet' is situated a little away from the others, very private, and a short walk to the communal areas. This has a bedroom in the mezzanine area with a large living room below it, a shower room with toilet, and a kitchen area. This leads onto a wonderful wooden veranda with spectacular mountain views.
Due to the situation of Le Linas, a car is essential. However, flying is an option with car rental at the airport. The nearest airport is Carcassonne, approximately forty minutes away, with flights from Stansted. Other possibilities are the airports of Toulouse, Montpellier and Perpignan.
It should be noted that, due to its location, the terrain is unsuitable for very young children and people with mobility problems.
