The Languedoc-Roussillon region
Neffies, which is an excellent location for visitors to explore this beautiful corner of France. Located on the edge of the “Parc Naturel regional du Haute-Languedoc” the surrounding vineyards produce award- winning wine, many of which can be sampled at the village Cave. Also in the village is a bakers, for your daily baguette and morning croissants, and there is a well-stocked provisions store, which has a meat and deli counter. A van visits once a week selling fresh seafood, including local oysters and mussels direct from the producers. The village also provides a post office, children's play area and tennis courts. The family-friendly bar serves French fare lunchtimes and evenings, with great views from their terrace. Alternatively, one of the best restaurants in the area is tucked behind Neffies' Gothic church. The restaurant was praised in a 2010 Sunday Times article as being as “friendly and toothsome as you like”.
Less than fifteen minutes drive away (or you could take the bus, which stops near the property) is the ancient market town of Pezenas, “one of the quiet glories of Southern France” (The Independent 2010.) with it`s atmospheric old quarter, artist's studios and boutiques, and wide variety of bars and restaurants.
