Location description from manager

The Occitanie region

The 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.Swimming in the river at the mouth of the Gorges d'Herault is only a ten minute drive; canoes can be hired on the large sandy beach for breathtaking views as you paddle up the gorge. The beautiful Lake Salagou is twenty minutes away and offers safe bathing, windsurfing, sailing, pedelos, bike hire and horse riding. Sandy beaches on the coast are all within forty minutes drive. Several excellent Golf courses are available in Montpellier, Lamalou les Bains and Beziers.The varied countryside is a walker's paradise the footpaths are well marked, local tourist offices provide suggested itineraries to suit all levels of ability. The spectacular limestone rock formations give rise to wonderful gorges and scenery including the Cirque de Navacelles, Cirque de Moureze, Gorge d'Herault and the caves of Clamouse and Desmoiselles.The sophisticated City of Montpellier is a shopper's paradise with its ancient narrow streets offering everything from antiques to the best in French Haute Couture.

“Loved it”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2015

Well equipped property beautifully maintained. Great location - quiet village on road going nowhere, right on the edge of vineyards and beautiful hills. Loved it.

Thanks for taking the time to tell as what you thought, we were delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay and hope that you will return soon.

“Fansastic location with wonderful accommodation”

Reviewed 19 Sep 2014

Our third stay at La Ruine could not have been better. The house is very well equipped with everything you would need. The outdoor living areas are great for enjoying the sunny mornings and long evenings. Silvia, the neighbor is very friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend this property and will definitely return.

Delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay once more, we look forward to welcoming you back to Montpeyroux next summer.

“Well equipped quality property with gorgeous views”

Reviewed 30 Jan 2012

Well equipped quality property in peaceful location with lovely views. Lots to see and do in the area - second trip to Montpeyroux bioth times booking through Caroline Martin who is a delight to do business with - professional and well organised . Only issue was an extremely hard bed which gave my Partner back ache and stopped him from sleeping properly for the whole week .Have suggessted the owners purchase a mattress topper !

Thanks Jennifer, beds are always a very individual preference but the mattress topper is a brilliant idea. A trip to IKEA should sort it!

“An Idyllic Holiday Home from which to explore the area”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2011

We loved this well restored house in the tiny Hamlet of Du Barry. It has charm and character and is much bigger and more spacious than the pictures depict. There is a large living area with a great sunny terrace looking out over the vineyards. We loved having breakfast here in the mornings (normally delicious pastries after a 5 minute walk into the village of Montpeyroux to a very good bakery). The two bedrooms upstairs are also light and spacious with their own terrace which gets all the morning sunlight. The caretaker was delightful, friendly and helpful and the accommodation very comfortable and homely. The village of Montpeyroux also has a very good restaurant which is actually a wine cellar selling andexcellent range of locally produced top notch wines. They charge you retail prices with a modest corkage for drinking at the restaurant - Sunday evenings they have jazz musicians in the square and one dines alfresco in a lovely atmosphere listening to the music. The sister restaurant of Mimosa in the nearby village of Saint Giraud is absolutely phenomenal. 10 minutes away is the lovely gorge of the Herault when one feels like going for a swim. Nearby are very interesting towns and restaurants and the coast is only 40 minutes or so drive as is the city of Montpellier. This is a great place to base yourself for exploring - walking, car or cycling with loads to do around in a very scenic and beautiful area. Free use of broadband WiFi was invaluable in helping plan where to visit and researching local spots. All in all we had a lovely holiday here- wish we could have stayed two weeks instead of just one.
