he Languedoc stretches from the Rhone Valley to the Spanish border and eastern Pyrenees, from the spectacular Massif Central mountain range, through hills and plains carpeted with vines and olive groves to the Mediterranean’s beaches and lagoons full of oyster and mussel beds. This rich diversity ensures that there is something to suit all tastes and interests.
The area is steeped in history from the Cathar Castles in the Pyrenean foothills to the Crusader towns of Aigues Mortes and Le Couvertorade. The Roman towns of Nimes, Arles, Narbonne and Avignon are all within a days drive. The medieval town of St Guilham le Desert is not to be missed for its fabulous setting and it’s famous abbey.

This is an extremely spacious house, which has been lovingly restored and tastefully refurbished. It is located in a pretty circular village with a bakery and small supermarket in walking distance. We felt at home as soon as we arrived and enjoyed a wonderful holiday, exploring the area and relaxing at the pool.
