The owner of Maison Danton, Jennifer Viner, has spent many years living in France and has collected interesting and historic pieces with which to furnish and decorate the house. A brand new fitted kitchen and shower room were fitted in 2009 and the whole house has been recently rewired and redecorated.

|The ground floor is entirely
open plan to give a spacious airy living room with an open plan
kitchen, circular dining table and a chaise longue. A small tv connects
to French channels.
With windows at the front and rear of the house, sunlight streams into the house reflected by the simple white walls. Wooden shutters on the windows allow for security and to reduce the impact of the midday sun during the summer months. Electric heaters in each room make Maison Danton suitable as all year round holiday accommodation.
Built on 3 floors Maison Danton is connected by an original stone circular staircase which winds through the middle of the house. The number of floors and the staircase may make this house unsuitable for small children or anyone with reduced mobility.
|At the very top of the house
with views over the rooftops is a deceptively spacious roof
terrace. Access is via a glass door situated within the twin bedroom. A
second dining table and chairs on the terrace allow for alfresco dining
or just relaxing in the sunshine. With no through traffic, Maison
Danton is a corner of tranquillity in what can be a lively village
during the summer months.
The village of Villeneuve les Beziers can be traced back to medieval times and has a good range of shops, bars and restaurants. The canal du midi slices through the middle of the village and the many boats meandering along the canal seem to mirror the steady pace of life.

Find quaint squares planted with trees and semi exotic plants shading a seat or fountain where you can rest out of the midday sun.
