Mediterranean village house with wine, cheese, sun
from £58 /night help
House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Stop to breathe and enjoy life in our charming maison with the most spectacular roof terrace you have ever seen, in a medieval hilltop village in the south of France, close to Pezenas, the town of Moliere. The terrace is completely private, so you can sunbathe in complete, glorious seclusion, relaxing on a comfy chaise on its tiled floor, hidden behind its pretty walls.
Stand up, and the view over those walls is stunning, as you can see for miles over the surrounding rolling hills and vineyards. The terrace is huge, covering the entire roof of the house, and equipped with a built-in stone BBQ, so you can while away a whole day up there, under the bright blue Mediterranean sky. This extraordinary house is located in Languedoc, the area known as the "real south of France."
Just 20 minutes to white sand Mediterranean beaches, Maison Rose Clair is fully renovated, comfortable, and sunny, with everything you need for an unforgettable, authentic French holiday, including a large country kitchen, sleeping space for six in two bedrooms and a salon with pullout couch, a full bathroom plus a half bathroom, and tiled floors and big windows throughout.
Cool in summer, warm in winter, it has all the amenities, including free WIFI, a printer for your use, free phone calls to Europe and North America, new flat screen TV, DVD, CD player and books and board games. New washer and dryer, gas stove, fridge, cappuccino maker, toaster, microwave, etc. For those with limited mobility, it is partially accessible - please ask for details - we can also offer advice about accessible beaches, etc in the area.
The gorgeous roof terrace, with stunning views of vineyards, the village and a meandering river, is equipped with a stone BBQ, and has the privacy for an intimate couples' dinner, and the space for a big family get-together. Spacious, pretty and clean, the maison is in a region famous for its fine wines, fresh food markets, ancient abbeys, and awe-inspiring natural beauty, where the sun shines 300 days of the year. Hike or mountain bike through the vine-covered hills right from your door, cycle country roads to surrounding village markets, swim in the warm, clean river that runs past the village, or head to the nearby Mediterranean beaches, explore nearby ancient treasures like the Canal du Midi and the cathedral of Beziers, go antiquing in the perfectly preserved streets of the bustling medieval town of Pezenas, the home of Moliere. You can find something different to do and see every day, or spend your days relaxing in the rooftop sun with local food and wine.

"Roof top terrace, warm river swimming, lovely roman village in south of France"
We loved this house - it was a typical, shuttered French house in an ancient narrow laned French village. Unlike the neighbouring houses it had a fantastic secluded roof terrace with stunning views of surrounding vineyards. The house was very comfortable and our kind host was very easy to deal with. Well placed for visiting lots of interesting places - Pezenas (great market lovely old town streets) Mediterranean, limestone gorges, wild swimming. Easy reach of Beziers airport and also Carcassonne.

"Very nice, well equipped house with beautiful terrace"
We were there for two weeks for whitsun holidays. And inspite of the unusual cool weather, we enjoyed our holidays. You can do a lot like trips to Montpellier, Sète, Narbonne, Toulouse (very wonderful city). Pézenas is really not far from Maison Rose Clair. We walked to there severeal times (approx. 35 min.). There are also possibilities to hike in the nature.
All was perfect! Thank you!
