About La Maison de l'Orb Riviere

Maison de la Rivere d'Orb is a fantastic house located on the riverside of the Orb, in Vieussan. It offers beautiful views of the surrounding mountains, direct access to the river and your very own beach. This property provides total peace and tranquillity.

The gite is the entire ground floor of a recently renovated century-old winemaker’s house. You have access to your own private riverbank looking up to the Orb valley and over to the medieval hilltop village of Vieussan.

The front door leads into a games/entrance area, which is also where you’ll find two of the bedrooms. The kitchen is at the end of the hallway and is fully equipped with two large French Café style doors leading to the garden. The kitchen is modern and has a fridge, a hob, a NEFF oven with grill, a dishwasher, a washing machine and all the usual utensils, as well as an American-style fridge/freezer with cold filtered water and an ice maker. There is a Juliette balcony which offers stunning views over the garden and river.

The first bedroom is the former stable and retains the drinking trough (useful for putting your suitcases on!), old wooden doors and one original stone wall. It’s a large and spacious room with a Euro King size bed (160cm) and has good hanging and storage space.
The second and third bedrooms are smaller – each has two single beds with hanging/storage facilities. These bedrooms have new windows with views looking through the trees to the beaches on the other side of the river. All of the bedrooms have radiators for warmth during the Spring, Autumn and Winter.
There is a day bed in the games room that could be used as an additional bed, however, the room is open and, therefore, does not offer privacy. A cot is available upon request.

The family bathroom is spacious and offers a large walk-in shower, WC and basin. Bath towels are provided.

Outside the living room’s beautiful Café doors is a small railed-off area, with lockable gates, where small children can play safely. From there, a flight of stone steps leads you to the walled garden.

The sheltered top terrace has a table for eating out in the shade of cherry and fig trees (help yourself to cherries, grapes and figs in season) and a barbecue. Down two more terraces is your own private river bank. Bathe or swim in the sun in the gently flowing waters, then lie in a hammock or deck chair under the shade of the trees on the bank.

Location and Map

This marker is for indication purpose only

A leisurely 5-minute stroll to get your fresh morning croissants, or just 5 mins walk across the medieval bridge to Le Lézard Bleu (the village café/bar/restaurant) with the best beer menu in southern France (not to mention local wines, food and an excellent play-area for Children)….all in a quiet valley in the shadow of impressive mountains and only an hour from Mediterranean beaches!

Walk up the hill to the village of Vieussan with its historic narrow streets, you will find Wine and vegetables and a petanque pitch (we have boules) with a public BBQ area and fantastic views. The bakery and other shops are in the nearby village of Mons La Trivalle (7 minute drive). There is a lovely market at Lamalou-les-Bains (15 minutes).

Mountains, hills and gorges provide wonderful walking. Or hire a donkey to carry your child and a picnic! Kayaking on the River Orb is available from two locations within 10 minutes drive. There is a tennis court (we have rackets). Bike hire, Golf and Horse Riding are available locally. Less strenuously, we are surrounded by the vineyards of the St. Chinian appellation, and many local domains offer dégustation.

Languedoc is France’s largest wine-growing region with many historic towns and villages. Nearby historic Roquebrun (10 mins) has a fine Mediterranean Garden and 2 great restaurants as well as a wine bar, a grocery store, a bar, newsagent, Pizzeria and baker.

We are 40-45 minutes from the historic towns of Béziers and Pézenas. And don’t forget that the Mediterranean is just an hour away.
