The Languedoc-Roussillon / Herault region
The Languedoc-Roussillon region has everything you could want from a holiday, bordering the Mediterranean to the east and the Pyrenees in the south , it is an area of spectacular contrasts - vineyards, lakes, mountains, clean and sandy beaches, historic towns & fishing ports not to mention one of the best climates in France. Nearby places of interest include: Adge on the Herault River, believed to be the second oldest town in France; Marseillan, home of the Noilly Prat production plant; the Bassin de Thau, famous for its oyster beds; and the Canal du Midi (as recently featured in Rick Stein's "French Oydessy").
To the north is the pretty River Orb with its river beaches, ideal for swimming & picnics. Further north the terrain becomes more mountainous in the National park where you can visit gorges and inland lakes such as Lac du Salagou. Ideal for bathing, windsurfing, fishing and hilly walks.
To the south west it is a 90 minute drive to the Spanish border and the Pyrenees. Inland to the north west you enter "Cathar" country on the road to Carcassonne and Toulouse. To the east, Marseille is a two hour drive. En route is cosmopolitan Montpellier (capital of the Languedoc) the Camargue, famous for pink flamingos, wild horses and bulls; Nimes; the famous Roman aqueduct (Pont Du Gard) in nearby Uzes and historic Avignon.
The Pezenas / Servian area
Servian is a flourishing wine producing village located between the sea and mountains, set on a hill overlooking vineyards in the heart of the Hérault. The old town is 15th century with many narrow, twisting streets. Within walking distance there are several bars (including Le Grand Cafe with views from the terrace) other restaurants with outdoor dining, a pizzeria, a bank, various shops (bakers, butchers, pharmacy etc) as well as a regular market (usually 3 times a week). Just a few minutes walk away from the house is the local wine co-operative selling the locally produced wine. Also just down the road is a supermarket, a petrol station, a large municipal swimming pool, campsite and sports centre.
The surrounding area is great for cycling, walking and picnics. There is a good choice of Mediterranean beaches close by, the nearest being the fashionable holiday resort of Cap d`Agde with beautiful long sandy beaches. Try to catch one of the water jousting tournaments that take place throughout the summer in Adge, Marseillan and Sete ! Both the Herault River and the Canal du Midi offer opportunities for fishing, boat trips and hire. Cultural Pezenas is the nearest town and in the other direction, historic Beziers is the nearest city.

We stayed here in 2010 and returned in 2012. The house and pool are lovely, now with wi-fi which keeps teenagers happy! Servian is a pretty village and there are lots of options for days out ie canoeing, the beach, golf etc within 30 - 60 min drives. There is a good supermarket and local shops.
The house is very well equipped and the summer kitchen by the pool is great providing an additional fridge (for the beers!).
From initial enquiry, arrival, return of the keys and return of deposit cheque the owners and property agents in France were very prompt and helpful.

La Vigneronne is a well located and well equipped holiday rental home in the village of Servian, Languedoc. There is easy access to all the wonderful sights the region has to offer. The house itself is easy to be in - I should know as I rent it for 6 weeks at a time! The outdoor terrace is shady and perfect for breakfast al fresco. The summer kitchen and pool area also offer good areas of both shade and sun to suit everyone. The property is efficiently yet unobtrusively managed by the local agents who are English. I definitely recommend this rental for both longer holidays or a short break with friends and family. The addition of the wifi has further enhanced the house.
