The Languedoc-Roussillon 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 ahaven for shoppers with its ancient narrow streets offering everything from antiques to the best in French Haute Couture. There is an excellent range of restaurants and pavement cafes where you can enjoy being entertained by a wide range of street artists and musicians during the summer evenings. The newly inaugurated tramway system is highly efficient and avoids the need to take your car into the town centre.

"Property first class"

The property is fitted out to a high standard with everything you could need for a self catering holiday. The pool is salt water which was so much 'fresher' than the usual chemically treated pool we have had in the past and the outside areas are large enough for a fair sized party . Only complaints are the total lack of contact from the management company you are left very much to your own devices even down to having to wash our bedding mid holiday as there was no change of linen also the stanard of cleaning was average at best. To summarise -Property great- Service/support -non existent (we had to phone the owner in uk for help)

Glad to hear you enjoyed your holiday sorry you found the service lacking, had you contacted me (the local agent) during your stay I am sure that the shortfalls could have been addressed promptly.

"Excellent modern villa"

Villa is well situated with countryside views and near an attractive village. The decor is modern and freshly painted. Master bedroom is downstairs with shower room and walk in wardrobe. Other bedrooms are upstairs which gave our teenage son an area of his own. Well equipped. Facilities of the standard we have experienced in large American homes in Florida. Supermarket is a short drive away and bakery a short walk into the village.

Thank we were delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay.
