Les 2 Jardins du Soleil
About the home
This ground floor gite, with its own private walled garden and pool, was built in the 19th century in a friendly small village in the midst of the magnificent landscape of Languedoc vineyards. The village has a bakery, post office, tennis court, and petanque garden. The building is newly decorated to a high standard, whilst retaining the stone & wooden features of this classic vigneron stone house.
If you just want to relax in the fresh air, you could spend your holiday beside the pool, as the Summer Kitchen in the garden has a Barbecue and patio dining area.

The Languedoc-Roussillon / Herault region
This region has over 300 days of sunshine and has the second hottest weather in France (Corsica is number 1).
If you like getting out & about on your holiday, you will find a great variety of landscape and things to do:
- the Mediterranean beaches are sandy and stretch from Montpellier down to Perpignan. So you can go to a seaside town to browse round the shops & markets; try the local restaurants; go for a trip round the bay in a glass bottomed boat; or just find space for yourself to relax and picnic on the beach.
- then there are the Black Mountains with well marked, great walks and cycling. A book of varying difficulty routes is to hand in the house. There are also picturesque lakes and rivers in the area.
- there are ancient towns and buildings to visit such as the Cathar Castles on stunning rock outcrops close to the Pyrenees, or alternatively the modern city of Montpellier which has been voted France's best City to live in. Both can be reached by car in approx. 1hr 15mins.
- there is the modern wonder of the new bridge at Millau (approx. 1hr 35 mins by car) that is a very popular tourist attraction surrounded by stunning scenery and plenty of other facilities.
- in August there is the water jousting at Sete.
These are just some of the diverse sides to the area you can go and explore, if you don't want to lounge around the pool at home for your stay.

We were greeted by Janet and Gordon, who made us feel an easy instantly. They proved to be helpful and knowledgeable about the local area during our two week stay.
The Gite was well equipped with everything we needed, the outside cooking area was excellent. We enjoy sitting in the sun on the terrace and make good use of the pool area. The layout is brilliant and spacious, there was a selection of DVDs and CDs and even a iPod docking station.
The Gite is located in Cebazan, a small village with a bakery and post office, we tried and loved the bread and pastries from the bakery. The market in Saint Chinian (5 kms away) is a must, the local fresh produce is delightful. There is lots to see and do. From biking, hiking and kayak for the active, to eating, wine tasting and scenic drives for the those who prefer to be less active.
We loved it and have already recommended it to our friends.

Great place to get away from it all. Lovely place and owners. Fantastic outdoor kitchen which we used most nights. The gite has all you need for a holiday and the photos don't do it justice. Well equipped with a lovely private garden and pool. Great base for exploring wine country, mountains and coast as well as cities such as Beziers, Carcassonne, or Montpellier. Would recommend highly.
