A lovely light and airy studio set in the large landscaped garden of the owner. The studio is divided with sleeping area in one half and kitchen, dining and lounging area in the other. There is a separate bathroom with shower, toilet and washand basin. The studio has a well equipped kitchen . Large patio doors can be open on three sides. Outside there are table and chairs and sun loungers for your use which can be moved around the garden as you require. There is also a bbq outside. Wifi is in the Pool House.
Parking is within the secure grounds or if arriving by motorbike this can parked in the garage.
With uninterrupted views across the patchwork of vineyards in the valley below, the large garden offers a peaceful environment, to sit and relax under the shade of the many trees and palms, or sit around the pool - which can be used at any time and is not used by anyone else, as the owner does not use the pool when clients are in residence. If you are looking for a peaceful, restful holiday, a chance to catch up on your reading (there is no TV) or listing to your music.....you've found it !
Tressan is a peaceful picturesque small hilltop village with a small shop where croissants and baguettes can be bought as well as fruit, veg, and the small essentials for self-catering. The next village, Canet 2km has bakers, bar, newsagents and restaurant or the market town of Clermont L'Herault 10km has all you need. Tressan is conveniently placed for travelling around the region being only 10mins from the A75 autoroute; 15mins A750 to Montpellier, 15mins from Pezenas and 35mins to beaches or 15mins to the Lake and surrounding hills. There is so much to see and do in the Languedoc, one visit is not enough!
Distances to airports are not too great, with Beziers being around 35mins as is Montpellier or further away, Perpignan - 1hr10mins, Carcassonne 1h30mins, Marseille 2hrs.

It is also a dog friendly environment and if required owner will look after dogs, for a small charge, should owners wish to travel out for the day and not take the dog during the heat of Summer.
To clarify a couple of things......in the kitchen there is a four ring hob and the oven is a worktop small oven/microwave, which is adequate for cooking, unless you want to cook a turkey!
The freezer is a freezer compartment in the fridge.
The pool is stated as being shared, this is in as much as the owner lives on site and may use it whilst guests are out, but does not use it whilst guests are in and around the pool, garden and Pool House.
The garden is also stated as being shared, the grounds to the property are 2500 square meters and the owner has a private garden at the back of the house, so again, does not use the garden...clients have full use of the garden to move about and sit in the shade.
The Languedoc-Roussillon region
Languedoc-Roussillon Region in the South of France still retains an air of being in the 1950s, with it's laid back pace of life, a place where people work to live and not live to work. It is a region of 300 days of sunshine and the largest wine producing region in France. Tressan is within the Herault Department (34) of the Languedoc and within it has diverse landscapes, from the Mediterranean Sea, endless hectares of vineyards and back to the, lake, gorges, mountains and rivers to the North.
During the Summer months there are plenty of fesitvals going on in nearly all villages and towns.
There is something for everyone in the region.
Tressan, 15mins from the A75 North/South Autoroute: a charming peaceful village on a hilltop overlooking the Herault river on one side and the vineyards of the Herault Valley on the other. The village has a small shop where you can stroll to in the morning returning with your croissants and baguette for breakfast or eat outside on the terrace in front of the shop . You can also while away a little time in the evening with a glass of wine or beer - the village centre being only a 5min walk from the Pool House.
The two larger town of Pezenas and Clermont L'Herault are a 15min and 10min drive, where you will find many bars, restaurants and a variety of shops and plenty of entertainment during the Summer months. There are also many small villages to stroll around, where the pace of life is one of relaxtion, with locals passing the time of day under the shade of trees or playing boules. There are various markets during the week with their colourful displays of local grown fruit, vegetables and varieties of handmade cheeses.
The Mediterranean Sea is only about 30mins drive, with the beautiful sandy beach stretching from Cap d'Agde, through Marseillan and on to Sete. There is also the inland sea, the Etang, with the pretty small ports of Marseillan, Meze and the fishing village of Bouzege, where you will see the oyster and mussel beds and the landing areas for the fishing boats which bring them in daily to the restaurants along the shore. Or, head north, 15mins and visit the beautiful Lac du Salagou, also so tranquil, where you can swim, windsurf or take out a pedelo or kayak or relax along the shore. Westeren style horse riding is also near the lake, or take a cross country bike along the trails.
If you like a busier enviroment for a day, travel, via the Tram, to the cosmopolitan city of Montpellier, with it's Roman aquaduct, Botanical Gardens, Art Gallery. The central cafe area set around the marble floored Place de la Comedie. Walking around Montpellier, you will come across plenty of other smaller Places with cafes and tables under the shade of the magnificent Plane trees.
Many people come and have commented they did not realise there is so much to see and do and what a beautiful area it is. So come and see for yourself !

A Review I was expecting. This is from a couple who, in the two weeks of their stay, never said a word about there being any faults, or being dissatisfied and when asked if everything was okay said Yes it was.
The derrogative comments only came about when, after they left, I emailed wishing them a happy summer and reminding them they had not paid for the champagne which they had asked me to buy on their behalf, which I had been happy to do, after first finding out and letting them know prices for different ones and asking which they would prefer They did not offer to pay for it whilst they were on holiday. After 6 weeks from the time of arrival on holiday I had not been reimbursed. My final email was replied to by the wife who wrote a torrent of abuse about the Pool House and myself and when I eventually said, forget the money, she emailed and said they had never intended to pay for the champagne. As to being accused of being a liar, that I take great offence at – even without clients I very rarely use the pool, and never when clients are on site, even if they say to use it as they don't mind. I appreciate it is your holiday and therefore keep a very low profile - in their case I even went away for 4 days as I thought they would appreciate it. At the end of the day, they booked accommodation with owner on site.
Extract from their comments in Visitor's Book and personal Thank You card.
“Amazing 2 week Honeymoon…… had a lovely warm welcome from Carole…Perfect location….relaxed and did little exploration of the area……Thank you Carole for being so friendly and welcoming” . Thank You card… ”thank you for making us so welcome….loved our honeymoon, amazing house and location..Love X and X”.
I leave it to you, the potential guest, to make up your own mind as to what a holiday in the Pool House is really like - which I think can be seen by other Reviews, is in total contradiction to this Review

"A piece of heaven in France"
If you want to get away from it all and relax, this pool house must be one of the best places to go to. The views from the garden as you eat your breakfast in the garden, are breath taking, with vineyards and lazy French villages laid out before you.
On a hot day the pool is only 3 steps away.
A truly romantic setting with Carole an excellent hostess.

"Quiet, great views and a private pool on your doorstep"
We stayed here in August, so didn't get out much as it was just too hot! Just as well the cottage was comfy, clean and with outside table and chairs in the garden overlooking a lovely long valley. It was also great that 3 steps took you from the French windows into a private pool, complete with sun loungers and a blow up bed for the pool. The cottage was small but perfect for two, with a lovely comfy bed, sofa, big table inside and another one outside, clean shower and small but adequate kitchen. The location is great - really quiet, great views, lots of stars at night and not too many bugs. The owner has 3 dogs, two of whom are quite inquisitive but they are small and no real trouble at all. Garden is grass with lots of fig trees and other vegetation - great for when the sun gets really hot. As the cottage faces the main house, privacy needs to be maintained, which was sometime hard as with the doors open, the long net curtains flew around a lot and I'm sure that Carol the owner sometimes saw more of us than she would have liked! However, the back door faces the garden and is mostly quiet. Wifi worked well although you need to go up to the veranda of the main house. Carole was a lovely host - available but unobtrusive. She is planning air conditioning, and this would be helpful in the hottest months, especially at night when it can get very muggy. We had a lovely restful stay here, and it is perfect for couples.
