The Languedoc-Roussillon / Herault region
The Languedoc Roussillon lies on the southern Mediterranean Coast of France and borders with Spain. You will find many Spanish influences in the area, particularly in the dialect.
The region is the largest vineyard in the world with many household names as Faugeres, Fitou, St Chinian, Minervois providing some outstanding reds, superb rose wines and famous whites such as Picpoul only found in this area of the World. The region is also one of the leading areas for fresh fish particularly the oysters and moules from the Bassin de Thau as featured by Rick Stein in his recent series. There are wonderful fish restaurants in Meze, Marseillan (home of the Noilly Prat), Bouziques, and Sete to mention just a few.
The climate is hot and sunny for most of the year with the region having 300 days of sunshine per year. the temperatures in High Summer can reach mid to late 30's and the spring and autumn can be very good months. May and June are wonderful months to come down. During the winter the temperatures can be quite cold with occasional frosty days. The villa has excellent heating so it may be cold outside but inside it is warm and comfortable. There are miles of gold sandy beaches particularly between Agde and Sete. The villa is within easy reach of Carcasonne, Nimes, Arles and Pont du Gard.
The Pezenas / Tourbes area
Tourbes is a quiet village on the outskirts of Pezenas. The village has a Patisserie, all purpose shop, chemist, post office, local bar and an excellent restaurant called La Maison. Wednesday is a highlight of the week in the village with its own mini market and visiting cheese man. In the evening the Pizza man comes to the village and you can sit outside the bar whilst your Pizza is freshly cooked.
Pezenas which is the nearest local town - only 5 mins in the car is an old Roman settlement. The old town today is a maze of narrow lanes full of artisans in the high season of July and August selling their wares. The town has many restaurants and bars around the old town and main square. Early July has the local wine festival in Faugeres where you buy a glass and sample all the local vineyards wines for free - bring a non drinker to drive home. Also visit the markets of Clermont l'Herault on a Wednesday and Vias Plage on a Friday full of wonderful fruit, vegetables, meat and flowers and local oil and honey. Not to be missed. Sete has the wonderful jousting matches with the final on or near Bastille Day (14th July).

We were 2 families staying for 2 weeks July/Aug 2012. The villa is much more spacious than the photos show, the pool large and deep and was a fantastic for all of us, we took lots of large pool
Toys, rings, lilos and whales. The villa is within walking distance of small village for bread and small convenience store. A great supermarket in Pezenas which was a 5 min drive. We visited St Gulihem 3 times which was a 30 min drive as we all enjoyed canoeing and rock jumping, a great adrenalin buzz. Sete and other fantastic towns and beaches within 20-30 min drive. The villa came very highly equipped and the kitchen was very well organised. Sky TV a bonus ( we caught up on some 1st week Olympic highlights in the eve). I'm a keen runner so enjoyed 4 nice runs out to Valros and Pezenas, through the country lanes and vineyards, the weather was between 30-35 degrees everyday. Quite remote, so completely quiet at night looking across the fields from up on the hilltop listening to crickets and watching rabbits/partridges in the field. We visited Sete, Cap d'Agde, St Gulihem, Pezenas, Grau Agde. I would highly recommend this villa, very clean, modern and location very good.

We had a wonderful stay!! Scenery beautiful, and the Villa was fantastic. The pictures are good, but still don't do it justice - its huge!! And it was extremely clean and well stocked - including the amazing kitchen. Took us a while to find it, but when we arrived we were thrilled! Everything was better than we expected. Tourbes has just enough to keep you interested, and Pezanas is only a 5-10 min drive away and it is an amazing town to explore! Just how a french town should be, and lots and lots to see. We had a day visiting the numerous vineyards (our favourite was Chateau Montrose) and had a wonderful time. I would recommend this Villa to anyone - wonderfully relaxing, but lots of things to do just on your doorstep. And Susie was extremely helpful and friendly. Thank you so much for letting us stay!! xxxx
