The sunny, elevated terrace with garden furniture and attractive outlook adjoins a walled 9m x 4m pool with sitting area and loungers.

The pool is enclosed in a courtyard separated from the terrace by a lockable full height gate.

The 45sq.m terrace, which is at first floor level, has views of the surrounding countryside and overlooks the village 'stade' to one side, although in summer the foliage of an ancient vine conveniently provides a screen, which enhances privacy.

Location and Map

This marker is for indication purpose only

Basic facilities are within walking distance, all other services are within 10-15 min by car, four airports within 35-90 min, river beaches 10 min by car and Mediterranean beaches/Aquapark 40 min. The area is superb for walking, winetasting, canoeing and river swimming (River Orb and Roquebrun) and offers plenty of interest for lovers of wildlife, landscapes and history.

General store, bakery, mobile shops on certain days, vintners, recreation area with tennis court in the village; Medium-sized supermarkets, banks, petrol stations, restaurants, tourist offices, doctors, all the usual shops and services, the river Orb 10-15 min by car; Béziers with its sightseeing opportunities, hypermarkets, large choice of shops, also a greater choice of restaurants 30 min by car; the Mediterranean coast,'Aqualand' at Cap d'Agde 45 min by car.

The River Orb with its beaches and gorge, ideal for swimming, canoeing, walking, birdwatching, etc, is 10 min by car. The Mediterranean coast (Agde, Sérignan, Valras-Plage) is approximately 40 min by car.

If crossing the channel by car via Dover or Folkestone, the most direct route is the motorway via Paris and Orléans, then either via Clermont Ferrand and Millau, or via Limoges and Toulouse. The drive from Calais usually takes 10-12 hours plus stops. Approximate driving times to the nearest airports are 45 min Béziers, 90 min Carcassonne, Montpellier and Perpignan, 2 hours Nîmes and Toulouse. A range of flights from several British airports and car hire is currently offered (eg Ryanair, Flybe, EasyJet, British Airways).

There are many good walks in the area, eg around the village, the gorge of the Orb, the mediaeval village of Minerve, the Montagne Noire, and the Gorges de l’Héric. Almost every village is a starting point for walks of varying grades of difficulty. For cyclists, the immediate area is undulating and therefore suitable for the more energetic and for mountain biking enthusiasts. The less energetic could try the area to the south around the Canal du Midi.

At Roquebrun (10 min by car) canoes can be hired during the summer season, transport is provided one way, as well as watertight barrels for stowing picnics, swimming towels, etc. There is also a ‘Mediterranean Garden’ and along the river Orb many good spots for swimming. North of Roquebrun there are many pretty spots along the river, towards Lamalou-les-Bains to the east, and Olargues, a pretty medieval village, to the west. Further north towards Fraïsse-sur-Agout and the Lac de Raviège the countryside is completely different.

The Canal du Midi, due south, is good for easily accessible walks and cycling, and pleasant villages. The nearest beaches are Valras Plage, approx 40 min, or Serignan, Agde and Sète. Families with children could visit 'Aqualand' at Cap d'Agde.

Further afield there are many possibilities for day outings: Carcassonne, Minerve, Nîmes, the Camargue, Gorges du Tarn, Gorges de l’Hérault, Lac de Salagou, Montpellier, Cathar strongholds such as Peyrepertuse (near Perpignan), the chateaux of Lastours (near Carcassonne) and much more.

Customer Reviews

  • NAZ101 - Guest comments:

     'We loved this idyllic house, it had everything we needed and more, is tastefully furnished and the kitchen is superbly equipped. The pool has both sun and shade all day, is clean and extremely private. The patio area made a great place to eat, especially with the surrounding colourful flower boxes. We enjoyed freshly baked baguettes and croissants from the family-run bakery nearby. We would certainly want to return, and would recommend it to friends and family, as long as they don't take the weeks we want!'          
    'I was pleased to find that your delightful property delivered exactly what we'd seen and and hoped for from your website: a charming and well-provided house in an idyllic location.'
