Location and Map
This marker is for indication purpose only
With palm-tree lined streets and plenty to do, this is the ideal holiday location for people of all ages that are looking for a relaxing holiday with all amenities on their doorstep. There is a small supermarket in the centre of the village; the next village (less than 5 minutes away) has a Lidl, Aldi, Hypermarché and more. The main square is just around the corner of the house and boasts a bar, a brilliant restaurant that comes highly recommended, a tattoo parlour and a hairdresser. Just around the corner of the main square, you'll find more bars, a couple of pizza restaurants, a florist, a Tabac, a post-office (with ATM), a Mairie, a great boulangerie (we recommend the almond croissants!), a park with a playground for children, a butchers, a gym, a chemist and a doctor's surgery. Just a bit further are tennis courts and pétanque courts, all within easy walking distance of Shangri-La.
Children can play in the local park while teenagers can join the local skateboarders of the village. Adults can relax on the terrace of one of the multiple bars, or you can attend one of the many events that Sauvian has throughout the summer. Don't miss out on the weekly market!
Béziers is only 10 minutes away and is a must-see with cobble-stoned roads winding all around the historic centre and the city's landmark cathedral. Full of bars, restaurants, ice cream vendors and many shops. Visit Le Vieux Liège for a delicious 3-course meal, or dance the night away in Le Chameau Ivre overlooking the dancing fountains.
If you're looking for a bit of shopping, head to Le Polygone in Béziers, a beautiful shopping centre with a cinema and bowling alley on the top floor, countless high street shops, as well as a huge array of restaurants - sushi, Italian, tapas, burgers, crêpes - you name it, they've got it.
Other highlights in Béziers include the Canal du Midi, various nightclubs, shopping opportunities and beautiful parks that you'll find yourself not wanting to leave.
Other easy to reach villages and towns that are well worth a visit include Pézenas, Narbonne, Puisserguier, Colombiers, Sérignan, Valras, Cessenon-sur-Orb, Roquebrun and much more.

We had a great time at the villa! Location is great, touristic attractions nearby, shops, cafés and restaurant close by too. We really enjoyed having our own swimming pool too. Gina and sander were such wonderful hosts.- Annie H. July 2020
We had a wonderful stay at the villa - it was well equipped and lovely and quiet. It felt very private and had everything we needed. Would highly recommend.- Julia M. August 2020
Location tout à fait conforme à l'annonce. La maison est décorée avec soin, il y a tout ce qu'il faut. Les propriétaires sont agréables, à l'écoute et très disponibles si besoin.
Rental fully consistent with the announcement. The house is decorated with care, there is everything you need. The owners are pleasant, attentive and very available if needed.
We would like to thank you for your hospitality and knowledge of the local area. We've had a great holiday, just what was needed before we all return to our busy lives. To the good folk reading this, we highly recommend the Le Mistral restaurant in the next village, fantastic food at a reasonable price. It'll be interesting to see what you've achieved here in a years time. Whatever it is, we're sure it'll be fantastic. 31st August - 13th September 2019
We have enjoyed our two week stay at Shangri-La. Despite being so central to the village, the house is quiet and not overlooked. We've enjoyed many BBQs sat outside in the evenings. We highly recommend the local bakery and picked up tasty french bread there daily. We particularly enjoyed the beach at Valras Plage and went there most days. Serignan is just a 30 minute stroll through the houses/vines and we went a few evenings to eat there, enjoying an ice cream for the journey back! Thank you for your helpfulness and always being contactable! 17th August - 31st August 2019
We have had a lovely relaxing time at your lovely house. The area is perfect and quiet. The owners have made us feel very welcome and very helpful when we have needed. Really nice people! We can recommend the local bakery and have been every morning for breakfast and fresh bread. The children have had a great time in the pool, your outside space is great. We visited the beach and had a great day out finished with ice cream...yum! Thank you so much for your kindness and hospitality, we hope to see you again! 11th August - 17th August 2019
