A Winery Turned Guest House in the South of France

July 19, 2012

La Maison Pujol, a chic, laid-back getaway in the Languedoc, is on our desired-destination list; read on to discover why.

Several years ago, architect Philippe Phi and his wife, Veronique (both working for Fnac in Paris at the time), boxed up their belongings and left town. They headed south, where they purchased a rambling 18th century winery near Carcassonne. The design lovers renovated the property creating a five-room hotel furnished with a colorful mix of modern pieces and local vintage finds. For more information, go to La Maison Pujol.
