Clinging to the side of a small mountain,

above the picturesque hamlet of Le Lau,

Earthsky is a romantic 18th century stone cottage

set in a secluded mountain garden.

It is an intimate, luminous environment,

ideal for those seeking an inspirational oasis

in which to retreat, and relish the tranquility of nature.

This rustic cottage and her terraced Mediterranean garden

are exposed to the Southern light

and to the West,

where you can enjoy fabulous sunset views.

towards the Orb Valley and the mountains beyond.

Earthsky offers you homely rustic comfort.

It is well off the beaten track,

but enjoys easy access to Roquebrun and Mons la Trivalle,

both of which are popular tourist destinations with many attractions.

Earthsky is an ideal environment for lovers of nature, sporty types, those with an interest in Roman or Cathar history,

or plain old hedonists, seeking a base from which to explore the many wonders of this unspoilt area.

Further details indoors

On the ground-floor of the cottage there is a comfortable kitchen

equipped for the self-catering needs of six people.

It leads into a living room

where there is lounge seating and a dining area for four

arranged around a wood-burning stove.

French-windows open onto the terraces,

where there is a barbeque, table and chairs for four and a couple of sun-loungers.

Upstairs there is a mezzanine bedroom

with a double bed and an en-suite shower-room/wc.

There is a sofa-bed in the living area where two can sleep.

The only access to the bathroom is through the mezzanine bedroom.

Further details outdoors

The cottage has it's own garden which is quite private.

However, if there are guests in my other cottage, which also has it's own terraces,

they will pass through to access their accommodation,

and I come in to water the plants from time to time.

Further details

This venue is best suited for those seeking a rustic retreat in an unspoilt environment .

The only access to Earthsky is by foot.

It is fairly steep and somewhat rough.

Parking is in the village,

100 metres down the hill,

but I have a motorized wheel-barrow

and will help you with your luggage !

Earthsky sits on rugged terrain.

There are stone floors and stone stair-cases in the garden.

Hence you will need to be sure-footed and wear very comfortable shoes.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

The Parc Naturel du Haut-Languedoc is an area of wild natural beauty,

medieval villages, mountains, lakes, rivers, gorges, caves,

and lots of luscious vinyards !

Earthsky enjoys easy access to the popular and attractive villages of Roquebrun, Mons la Trivalle and Olargues.


Also known as Petit Nice,

Roquebrun is a large village on the River Orb

which is famous for it's beauty and it's river beaches,

as a kayaking centre

and for it's Mediterranean micro-climate and gardens.

Mons la Trivalle is situated at the foot of the Gorges d'Heric,

a location of out-standing natural splendour

which is rich in opportunity for out-door types.

Rock-climbing, horse-riding, mountain-biking, golf

and many spectacular walking trails

are all easily accessible from Earthsky.

This area is also steeped in historical interest for the more culturally inclined,

and has many colourful local markets,

enough to satisfy the most ardent of shopaholics !

Pezenas, a colourful and very popular town,

is one hour's drive from Earthsky,

and is a highly recommended day out

for those seeking interesting galleries, museums, shops, street life and restaurants.
