The Languedoc-Roussillon region

This region of France is famous for its sweeping vineyards and spectacular gorges but probably it is most famous for its beaches . The sweeping expanses of sandy beaches and long hours of sunshine make this coast a paradise for sunbathing, swimming and water sports. From the south of the region the Pyrénées can be explored.

It is one of France's most diverse regions. Inland, spectacular mountains are cut by deep gorges and beautiful wild valleys offering opportunities for every type of outdoor activity.

You will find lively cities, historic towns and fortified villages provide more than enough sight-seeing.The coastline is mostly flat with mile upon mile of safe sandy beaches. Behind the coast are plains and marshes home to a huge variety of birds and wildlife. The region borders the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean to the south and east and the Massif Central to the north. It is crossed by the Canal du Midi, a man-made canal from Toulouse to the Mediterranean. Inhabited by the Romans and the Cathars the area is rich in history.


Pezenas is an attractive old town, unspoiled by modern development, with narrow streets to explore as well as some grand 17th century houses.

The church of Saint-Jean-de-Bébian is classified as a historic monument, and the other main church - the church of Saint-Ursule also merits a visit. The town is also reputed for its antique and bric-a-brac shops.

The town is especially proud of its association with Moliere, who brought his troupe to the town on several occasions, and has a monument to commemorate the fact by the reputed sculptor Jean-Antoine Anjelbert. As a consequence, each summer Pezenas plays host to the Mirondela de l'Arte, and music and street entertainment takes over the town.

Not to be missed when you are at Pezenas is the nearby (12 km) Abbey at Valmagne, a classified historic monument and very beautiful abbey and cloister.

The village of Pouzolles where the house is actually situated is about 15 mins drive from Pezenas. It has a chateau, a traditional village square under the plane trees where a 'brasucade' and dancing takes place every Friday evening in the Summer. There are interesting walks around the village including the local 'volcano' walk which has some beautiful views across the vineyards, and quaint old streets to explore in the village itself.
