Light & Airy Garden Apartment
About the home
*********** Combine Historical City & Fabulous Mediterranean Beaches .. best of both worlds! *************
My lovely spacious, fully equipped holiday home is in a nice residential area just 1 mile outside the historical town of Beziers, on the banks of the river Orb and Canal du Midi with several lovely beaches nearby. This beautiful diverse region of Languedoc, which boasts over 300 sunny days a year, has something for everyone. It has excellent transport with it's own airport in Beziers (we are just 15 minutes away) Because of the comfort and convenience and being so ideally centrally located my apartment makes a perfect property for longer lets and property hunting! .. and represents excellent value for money!
The area outside Beziers is surrounded by vineyards with mountains, lakes, gorgeous villages, canal du midi, gorges, the amazing Carcasonne Citadel plus more all within the hour, and nearby fantastic beaches, cafe boulevards, historical cathedral .. truly something for everyone! A fantastic city and beach destination.
For the budget conscious (or how to have a very reasonably priced holiday) .......
(just a few personal tips that may be useful)
* try and book cheaper mid week flights, i do allow mid week arrival to allow for this flexibility, please ask!
Outside july/aug i generally pay £40-50return (plus extras) Keep your eye out for promotions which come up all the time, either subscribe or check the website. Do on line check in and just take a well packed hand luggage bag if you can, i have a washing machine to freshen everything, i also offer towel hire, at cost, to help (or buy a couple in the supermarket!) You will see how you can reduce the cost of your flights!
* do you need a car? there are excellent public transport links, buses & trains from beziers to almost everywhere, if you prefer a car, pre book before you leave and take the insurance to reduce your excess
* there are lots of FREE things to do and see in the area, it is not necessary to pay for lots of entertainment, i have left maps/tourist books and guides to borrow and tourist information all for your convenience
* with plenty of lovely fresh markets in and around Beziers why not utilise my very well equipped kitchen and eat 'al fresco'
* with the gorgeous weather offering more than 300 days of sunshine a year it is quite possible to have a very reasonably priced holiday even in our price sensitive, linen/changeover fees are also charged at cost. Also for stays of one week plus, any extra days are charged pro rata and not inflated for not staying the whole week (july/aug is at discretion)

The Apartment is just one of six, placed amongst villas in a nice residential area, very clean and modern. It offers plenty of comfort and convenience. We are just under a mile from the town centre, it can be walked (15/20 mins) or you can hop on the bus (over the road) for 50p (and come back on the same ticket if within the hour, or connect onto another bus to another destination) The apartment has two lovely light double bedrooms with plenty of storage, a bathroom with full bath and shower over and a separate WC. The light and airy lounge/diner is open plan and leads onto a large sunny balcony via french doors. The kitchen is open plan, fully fitted and well equipped with a full electric cooker, hob & extractor plus fridge, microwave and washing machine. Iron, ironing board and hairdryer are all supplied. Everything is at the apartment that you could possibly require, and it is very clean and modern. For your convenience we have english tv. I have modern electric heating in every room, cosy if required in the middle of winter. The river Orb is only a 10 minute walk from the apartment with its lovely old water mill. The property is accessed via the back, a small private cul de sac of a few villas, so there are no stairs. In a residential area surrounded by villas, yet near all the conveniences of a large town,.
We have our own private small garden/driveway behind attractive iron gates, quite unique for an apartment in the Beziers region. There is outside furniture both in the garden and on the balcony to make the most of the outside space. A lovely comfortable apartment suitable for a longer term let where every convenience is offered including television offering english channels (not guaranteed should weather disrupt) washing machine and a fully equipped kitchen, not just for a holiday let, it is truly a home from home with many testaments to the comfort offered.

julian - suffolk (booking again aug 2011)
Thanks for letting us stay in your lovely appm ... hopefully will stay again
heather and alan - chippenham (may 2011)
The house was bright and clean with all the amenities you would ever need. Bus stop just outside front door into Beziers was very easy to use and a cheap way to get around. All services are therefore close by. Good resources were also available at the house including maps and general regional information. Owner was very helpful in organising the accommodation and checking to make sure everything was OK once there. Would use again and recommend
karyn - Australia (april 2011)
Great, well arranged apartment wth everything you could possible need, including washing machine, iron and hairdryer etc... with a view from the balcony up to the old town of Beziers. Bakery and 'corner' shop 5 minutes walk away and Beziers town centre only 10 minutes walk.
Kay, the apartment owner is very friendly and helpful, her welcome pack contains detailed information for the apartment and local tourist sights. We had a fantastic time and would definitely use again.

The Languedoc-Roussillon / Herault region
There is so much to do, and places to see, the Tarn Gorges, the famous 'Canal du Midi' and the '9 locks' just 1 mile away, Carcasonne’s medieval citadel just 30 mins, plus the Haute Languedoc National Park with it’s mountain biking, walking, horse riding, and thermal spas, lakes offering windsurfing (all within the hour) ... the list is endless! Nearer home there are several lovely Mediterranean beaches with golden sand, about 5 miles away (our favourites being Serignan and Portiragnes) theres a choice of smaller family beaches and larger resort beaches like Valras Plage, or a stretch of 6 miles (Sete) Miles of vineyards and a beautiful golf course just outside Beziers. The weather is warm - hot most of the year, and it's sunny nearly all year-round. And being the world's largest wine-producing area means that Languedoc wine is cheap and extremely cheerful. Lovely time to visit April/May/June, quiter, cheap flights warm weather, July/Aug school holidays, hot, September/October, quiter, lovely time, November to March, warm - cool days, may require a little heating to take the chill off in the evenings with many sunny days, but can be changeable and turn cool as this is winter although a great time to visit to sight see without the crowds. Beziers is centrally situated in Languedoc and it's ideal for house hunting in the region! Beziers ihas it's own airport and 3 further airports within the hour being served by low budget airlines and excellent transport links, the apartment is very convenient and comfortable and offers everything you need! A brand new attractive shopping complex called 'Polygone'' has recently opened in town, offering entertainment, shopping and dining, themed with trees and a river running through and a scaled down feature of the 9 locks Also a lovely supermarket (open to 9pm daily and to 12 mid day Sunday) with parking at the complex. A free courtesy bus runs every 10 minutes from town or approx 15 min walk.
The Beziers area
Béziers is also perfectly situated for trips into the Haut Languedoc, a rugged and untamed mountainous region of picturesque stone villages and cascading mountain streams. The imposing 12th century St Nazaire cathedral overlooks the town has some stunning views, it’s well worth a visit. The Black mountains are within an hours drive and Spain just a little further. In town you will find great restaurants, wonderful old alleys, flower market (fri), parks, lovely shops, Brand new olympic swimming pool with outside pool in town, and even a bull arena, (personally i would only attend concerts and shows and leave the bull fighting!) .. plus more. There are several markets in Beziers and surrounding villages and lots of festivals throughout the year. There is an excellent tourist office in town where all the latest information can be obtained. I also have lots of information/maps/books at the apartment for your use.
How to get there
Click map icons for more information
Ryan Air now fly direct to Beziers a very small low key airport. We are just 15 mins from the airport!! Even more convenient, you can take the bus which collects the flight straight to the town bus station and pick up a bus (£1.50) which takes you right to our apartment (50p) Although there are excellent transport links from Beziers including a main line station (TGV) and a bus station covering the Herault region, having a car offers lots of convenience, pre book it before leaving the uk as its much cheaper and take the insurance excess for peace of mind, i have an annual policy which works out much cheaper if you hire more than 2 x a year. Driving down you can utilise the free toll road A75 which pretty much takes you past Paris right down to Beziers. For your convenience there is private parking on my drive/small garden area behind gates, a rarity for a town/city apartment.
(my dates are flexible to make use of the budget airline schedules, outside july/aug you can start your rental anyday)
Several destinations now have flights direct into beziers, too numerous to list, please check what is suitable for you
Budget airlines also fly to Carcasonne, Montpellier and Perpignan, all around 1 hours drive from airport to the apartment and easily accessible.
