The Languedoc-Roussillon region
This traditional and spacious house is located just a couple of minutes from the centre of one of the Languedoc's most beautiful villages, Poilhes, and the Canal du Midi which runs through the village.
Poilhes has a couple of shops and restaurants (don't miss Les Platanes which was featured on Rick Stein's BBC2 series) and there is a much larger selection in the neighbouring village of Capestang, and the city of Béziers is only 10 minutes away.
If you are feeling energetic, there is a free municipal tennis court just a couple of minutes walk away from the house.
This is the ideal location to provide a relaxing holiday base, whilst being within easy reach of local attractions and activities. The Mediterranean coast is 15/20 minutes drive, Montpellier, the thriving capital of the Languedoc with its international airport is 45 minutes away by car.
One of the most diverse regions of France, the Languedoc offers mountains, lakes, rivers and beautiful stretches of coastline; major towns and fairytale citadels. Languedoc is one of the most prolific wine-producing areas of France and a happy afternoon can be spent touring the many vineyards and tasting the local produce.
Budget airlines fly regularly to Montpellier, Perpignan, Nimes, Carcassonne and Girona. Spain, Andorra and the Pyrenees are within easy reach. By rail, the TGV operates from Lille to Béziers or Agde. Eurostar has a non-stop service from Waterloo to Avignon (July to September).
- Superb, child friendly beaches within a 20 minute drive, all with waterside restaurants and cafés.
- Béziers (10 minutes), historic town and capital of wine producing and rugby. Especially vibrant in August and during it's famous Féria. Perhaps the best flower market in the whole of the south on Fridays in the beautiful tree-lined main boulevard.
- Canal du Midi which links the Atlantic with the Mediterranean, miles of flat walks along the shady tow-paths. A choice of boat excursions can be taken.
- Carcassonne castle is well worth a visit, especially on jousting days!
- Roque Haute - outskirts of Portiragnes. Superb botanical reserve.
- Golf courses nearby at Béziers and Cap d'Agde
- Funfair at Vias Plage (July and August)
- Bassin de Thau - a calm inland sea teeming with fish. A breeding place for oysters and shellfish, producing over half the oysters consumed in France. Villages, such as Bouzigues and Meze, have many restaurants serving sumptuous platters of fresh shellfish.
- Haut-Languedoc Regional Nature Park - gorges, Lac de Salagou, a very beautiful area only 30 minutes drive away, with its stunning gorges and superb walking, hiking, river rafting, watersports and carp fishing.
- Roquebrun (called "Little Nice") with its Mediterranean garden with over 400 species
