The Proprietors:-

Sabine and Graham, the owners, live on site, able to assist with any questions or problems. They are delighted to transmit their knowledge and love of the region, and help you make the most of your holiday.

On arrival you will receive your complimentary and personalized « welcome » hamper, food and necessities (for stays of a week or more), so that you will be able to start your holiday on the right footing with an aperitif (around the pool), wine, a light evening meal, and your first French style breakfast the following morning.

Our aim is to make you feel thoroughly welcome as well as to provide quality self catering accommodation, and exclusive use of the gîte, pool (Graham and Sabine do sometimes does fall in), garden and BBQ, based on a weekly stay, starting every Sunday.

Your Holiday:-

Located slightly inland between the sea and the mountains, this is a region that begs to be explored. So, plan your type of holiday - lazy, relaxing by the pool - or - active. Visit - the sandy beaches, charming fishing villages and the oyster farms - the Garrigue and foothills of the Montagnes Noirs and the Cevennes. Don't miss out on the cultural and musical events, the art and theatrical festivals in the local cities and villages (dating back 1000 years). Choose from a large range of sporting activities. In short, just take your pick and enjoy - good local food and wines, comfort, the atmosphere and the magnificent location.

Guests have at their disposal a file 'Guests –useful tips and suggestions' - maps, guidebooks and leaflets, the local restaurants, suggested days out, the beaches, wine tasting, gourmet restaurants and much more: - aimed to help them discover the area. The selection is cherry picked so that they will get the most out of their holiday.

The 4 Paws gîte is an ideal holiday home for guests who BBQ and love to live outside in the summer months.

Local travel:-

You will need your own motorized transport if you plan on exploring the area although there is a local, rather infrequent, bus service. You can rent a car from the airport, the TGV station, and at low cost in the village. We could pick you up at Beziers Airport or the Agde TGV train station.

Dog and cat lovers:-

There are 4 shy but friendly dogs and 8 cautious cats on the property so regretfully we cannot accept your pets.

AND last but not least,

the Weather:-

Roujan enjoys 300 sunny days per year, every year. The best months are April through October, when daytime temperatures rarely fall below 18°C. Summers can be beautifully “hot”. Spring is clear and sunny. Summer tends to linger on.

Location description from owner

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

The Languedoc Roussillon, which includes the Hérault is simply magnificent. It is where the Cathars were established between the 12th and 14th centuries. Even today you can imagine villages hidden and protected from the outside world with guards posted to warn of intruders.

The villa is set in the fortified village of Roujan (34320); 21 kms from Beziers Airport, 28 kms by road from the renowned Mediterranean beaches of Valras & Serignan, - 55 mins from Narbonne, Montpellier and Sète - under 2 hours to the Spanish border.

This is a relatively undiscovered destination, between the sea and the mountains, that begs to be explored. Close by you will find:-

• long sandy beaches and seaside resorts

• numerous gourmet restaurants

• vineyards, wineries – discover high quality, interestingly distinctive, wines

• fishing villages and oyster-farms

• markets with tempting regional produce

• the mountainous National Parks of the Haut-Languedoc and des Cévennes

• the Garrigue, Mediterranean moorlands great for hikes, or just wander around in the peaceful olive groves or up the Canal de Midi

• chateau's (castles) and Cathar vestiges, and

• dozens of sporting activities Adventure parks, Billiards, Boating, Boules, Caving, Ceramics, Cycling, Fishing, Flying, French tuition, Go karting, Golf, Gourmet dining, Hiking, Horse riding, Mountain biking, Paragliding, Photography, Rambling, Rock climbing, Sailing, Shopping, Sightseeing, Swimming, Tennis, Walking, Water skiing, Wind Surfing, Wine tasting, Wine touring, horse riding, tennis, even terra sailing on Narbonne plage

• culture: - a wide and rich choice throughout the summer months - numerous cultural, art, theatre and music festivals. Montpellier boasts an Opera House. There are Jazz and Rock concerts too.

The cities of Carcassonne, Montpellier, Narbonne, Sète, Nimes and Perpignan are literally steeped in history. Each one has its own story to tell going back 2000 years with multiple points of interest - guided tours, museums ........ and in tune with modern times their Shopping Centres.

A little further away (for a long and unique day out) you might want to visit Van Gough's Arles and/or the Camargue.

So, whatever your interests a vast range of events and activities are within easy reach, you could even see a Bullfight, which indeed, is not to everyone's taste!

Roujan

Roujan itself: - the fortified village of Roujan was in fact founded by the Romans. Today the "city" gates can still be seen. It is a typical OC' vigneron village but less sleepy than many, in fact economically dynamic, with an active tourist office grouping together the Communauté de Communes Avants-Monts du Centre Hérault - Terroirs Faugères & Thongue, and a wealth of amenities all within easy walking distance, including:-

• a Supermarket and Mall

• Bistros and village Restaurants

• Butchers and Bakers

• a comprehensive Medical Centre, Pharmacy and Opticians

• Petrol Stations and Garages

• a cooperative Winery.

Pézenas is a Medieval Market town with an incredible if slightly decrepit old town centre. Molière is very much linked to the town. There is a major street market every Saturday full of local produce.

There is a "sometime" medieval atmosphere that lingers, as though this part of the world was frozen in time. Bédarieux, for example, has a 1950's look and feel to it. The first European Medical School was established in Montpellier, and thrives today.But, in the nineteen century wine became the dominant activity and the OC remains the highest volume wine producing area in the EU.

This is perhaps why this beautiful spot is not jam-packed with tourists (unlike the very crowded Côte d'Azur). We are located between the sea and the mountains. There is so much to discover, natural beauty and SPACE.
