Your Vacation Home
Your Home for Authentic Memories
Casa Lavineira is an 1820 village house located in the heart of the Minervois wine country of the Languedoc region, France. Nestled in a tiny street of the magical medieval village of La Livinière, our vacation home is surrounded by magnificent landscapes which include fabulous vineyards and mystical olive orchards.
The Village of La Livinière
Where Vineyards meet with Olive Orchards
With about 550 inhabitants, La Livinière is known mainly for its 20 wine makers, its A.O.C. and its two historic churches. But it is also home to over 10000 olive trees, an incredible number of Capitelles (little stone shacks built to protect the field workers and their animals). The origins of the village can be dated back to the year 990, but ancient roman settlements, as well as dolmens have been found nearby.
A beautiful and authentic medieval village, where the songs of the summer cicadas give way to the song of the grape harvest in the fall, the olive harvest early winter and the maintenance of the vineyards the rest of the year. La Livinière lives in a close relationship with mother nature, nestled in the foothills of the Black Mountain, and overlooking the Corbières mountains and the Pyrenees on a clear day.
A Region with Remarkable Wine
Unleash your Epicureanism
Epicureanism is a system of philosophy based on the teachings of Epicurus, founded around 307 B.C. It teaches that the greatest good is to seek modest pleasures in order to attain a state of tranquility, freedom from fear and absence from bodily pain. So delve into the pleasures of the earth and find solace with our remarkable wines while bathing in the authenticity of our unique Terroir.
