Location description from owner

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

- Herault is the land of 300 days of bright Mediterranean sun - with so much to do for everyone.
- A half hours drive south will take you to miles and miles of sandy Mediterranean beaches. While you are there, take in great seafood restaurants and perhaps a boat tour of the oyster beds near Sete.
- Fresh water swimming is available within 10 minutes of Libellule at the Barrage des Olivettes.
- Go north to Lake Salagou for hiking trails, and more swimming, or to the Cevennes National Park with the incredibly scenic caves - Aven Armand and Grotte des Demoiselles.
- Take a trip to Montpellier. The lively old centre is full of shops, cafes and amazing restaurants - and no cars. The Musee Fabre is one of the most important fine arts museums in France.
- A little further is Nimes - with its Roman arena (the best preserved example in existence, and still in use), the Maison Carree and the nearby Pont du Gard - a 2000 year old aqueduct that is truly awesome.
- One of our favourite places in this area is Aigues Mortes - a lovely medieval French town, surrounded by well preserved ramparts, filled with great art shops, a market (Wednesdays and Sundays) and close to the Salins du Midi where you can tour the salt beds
- Further east, there is Arles (a world heritage site with its Roman theatre and arena), and Avignon with another Roman theatre and the renowned Palais des Papes.
- And then there is Carcassonne - a medieval fortified town that is one of France's premier tourist attractions. Just over an hour west - for what will certainly be one of the highlights of your visit.
- We have put together quite a bit of travel information on the region at our website languedocvacationhome.ca

Neffies

- Neffies is a lovely friendly medieval town. Our home, Libellule is just metres away from the town centre with its epicerie, cafe and bakery. Les Goutailles is a wonderful restaurant.
- Drive in any direction from Neffies and you will be surrounded by vineyards with endless tasting opportunities.
- Pezenas with its craft and art shops, antique retailers, cafe-bars and restaurants is about 10 minutes from Neffies. It has changed little since it was adopted by Moliere with its 17th c. town mansions and 16th c. bourgeois dwellings. In summer, it is alive with festivals, concerts and exhibitions.
- On Saturdays, Pezenas features one of the biggest outdoor markets in the area.
- Around Pezenas are many "Villages Circulades" - traditional villages built in concentric circles, often around a chateau or church. You feel like you are waking through a history book.
- Saint-Guilhem-le-Desert is one of the "Plus Beaux Villages de France", a world heritage site, and one of our favourites.

“We would highly recommend a stay at Libellule in Neffiès - an experience 'out of time'”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2012

Our first visit to the south of France was a truly memorable experience, beginning with the discovery of Libellule, a renovated vacation rental in the village of Neffiès. Reviews from previous tenants and the informative website suggested a quiet location, local ambiance, and an accommodation that retained a great deal of rustic charm, while providing for modern comforts. It was indeed everything promised, an intimate and accessible example of an unofficial ‘belle village’ complete with historical remnants dating to the middle ages. The Canadian owners were wonderful, providing us with invaluable information about the area and Libellule, making us feel welcome and at home in their petite maison. Marie Hélène, the local caretaker proved a treasure, offering suggestions for local activities and markets for us to enjoy. Here the gentle, cultivated countryside unfolds in a bucolic impression, vineyards spilling in neat rows from each side of the road, strewn with a blush of poppies amongst the grasses of the verges and in the fields. Stone walls and buildings of considerable age exude an air of ‘since forever’. The quintessential experience of driving through the avenues of stately plane trees heralded our arrival, each a curving line of poetry, canted ever so slightly to the will of the prevailing winds. The tiny village charmed at every turn of the narrow road leading up into the village square, its ivy covered tower of medieval provenance, the fountain installed in a ‘7embre’ of a year centuries ago. Voluptuous roses, springing from impossibly small spots of earth, bloomed vividly against the yellow stuccoed or rock walls of the houses. Large keys opened an ancient door to an equally ancient set of stairs. Ascending with care, we bypassed the lower level where the family horse and grape press were once sequestered. On the upper levels, plastered walls were artfully scalloped to showcase the original stone of the walls and exposed timbers pleased the eye. The kitchen and washrooms were clean and well equipped. The beds were comfy and the rooftop terrace proved a lovely retreat. An exploration of the narrow lanes and shuttered homes of the village radiating outward from the church revealed the proximity of gastronomical delights at the épicerie, boulangerie, L’Echampette, the bistro-pub, and La Goutille, the exceptional first class restaurant. All felt friendly and safe. Many delights awaited us in our ventures further afield - another chapter!
