Location and MapThe Domaine is located just outside the charming city of Béziers. Situated in the countryside, it benefits from a peaceful location but at the same time it is only a few minutes drive to several pretty villages with all amenities and 20 minutes to the long, sandy beaches.
Béziers itself is only a 5 minute drive away, and is a lovely city that sees many tourists every year, joining together to enjoy the wonderful architecture and cobble-stoned roads. The main square of Béziers offers stunning renovated façades displaying the beauty of old-age Béziers.
There are activities for everyone in this area, you will be spoiled for choice. Traditional markets (don't miss the Saturday one in Pezenas), restaurants, bars, walks or bike rides along the Canal du Midi, home-made rum on a river-boat bar, bike rental, laser game, nightclubs, water parks, fabulous shopping, bowling alleys, cinemas, chateaux, wine tasting, superb sandy beaches, medieval villages .. the list goes on and on.
Béziers is wonderfully located right in the middle of all of the activities that make Hérault what it is. The beaches are only 15-20 minutes away, complete with golden sand and delicious seafood.
The medieval city of Carcassonne is only an hour away, full of its cobble-stoned roads and traditional shops and restaurants, all seemingly completely untouched. A visit to the medieval castle is an absolute 'must'!
The bustling student city of Montpellier is only 45 minutes away, full to the brim of restaurants and bars and nightclubs, as well as every activity that you could possibly imagine including a fabulous aquarium, a planetarium, ice skating and go-karting.
Narbonne is a favourite amongst locals thanks to the laid-back atmosphere that the city provides you with, as well as a beautiful walk along the canal, and a mouth-watering wander around the local market.
If you're looking for something traditional and typically French, then we recommend driving 40 minutes to Saint Chinian and its surrounding villages and towns such as Roquebrun, Assignan, Agel, Bize Minervois and Trébes are all wonderful days out in the gorgeous countryside.
A couple of our favourite places to visit are Pézenas, Saint Guilhem le Désert and Minerve, all absolutely stunning villages full of history and beautiful architecture, these small villages have a lot of character and will forever be a reminder of your time in France.
On a rural road just off the main D612 and about a 10 minute drive into the centre of Beziers.
20 minute drive to the beaches at Valras Plage.
15-20 minute drive to Narbonne.
45 minute drive to Montpellier.
I hour drive to Carcassonne and Perpignan.

We stayed in the gite at Domaine du Pin and had a super holiday here. The gite is well-equipped with everything brand new - the dining and sunbathing terrace was particularly pleasant and increased the living area by double! The pool area was lovely and we felt we had plenty of space to just relax in. The beach is only 20 minutes drive away and we loved Valras Plage, lots of restaurants and sandy beach, perfect for kids. We also went to St Chinian market on Sunday morning and ate out one night at a fabulous restaurant in Poilhes called La Tour Sarrasine, very highly recommended. Will definitely return next year!

What a gem! Have had the most fabulous time in this lovely gite. Location, facilities and of course the weather just perfect. You have thought of everything. Thank you Juliana and family (and Sweep the cat!) for making us feel so welcome. We shall be recommending you to our friends back in Blighty. Merci beaucoup. x

The property photos and description was accurate and our expectations were exceeded. It was good value for money and the cleanliness on arrival was excellent.
Lovely location; ideally situated for exploring the delightful villages of the Canal du Midi and their restaurants!
The gite is bright with great attention to detail and the outside space is amazing! Delightful terrace and wonderful pool, perfect for all ages.
Juliana and family couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome, nothing was too much trouble.
Will certainly recommend! With thanks, June, Michael and Dan (July 2014)
We liked and loved: The Pool! The Patio. Candlelight. The dogs and cats. The Welcome Basket and wine and the welcome from Juliana. Wi-Fi. The Hoopoe mum and babies in the eaves. Big garden. Kitchen and all the necessaries. Good shower. Excellent storage. The compactness of the gite. The privacy and laissez-faire but always someone on hand with help and advice.
We recommend: Pizz'a Nous in Maraussan main street; canoeing and swimming at Roquebrun; ancient and lovely Olargues; more Mojitos; Cassis; the 'sixties' chair; the sound of the tree outside; late nights on the patio; one last Mojito!
Thank you Juliana, Mary and Jake for your warm welcome and ready advice for all daft questions and recommendations. We've had a brilliant week. Good luck and a bientot.
Mairi, Mandy, Holly and Lorna from Edinburgh (July/August 2014, après 4 Mojitos!)
What a fantastic Gite and location! We have enjoyed lazy days around the pool and candle-light evenings. We have visited and enjoyed Carcassonne, Aqualand, La Grotte des Demoiselles (caves), Serignan beach, Canoeing at Roquebrun, Le Petit Nice restaurant (Roquebrun, great pizzas and friendly staff).
If you fancy a night with a difference, try Toro Piscines at Cap d'Agde, very entertaining watching the young men running from the bull!! We also enjoyed our evening with Juliana at the Feria in Beziers. So much to do, not enough time, we must visit again soon.
Thanks to Juliana, Jake and team for making our holiday a great experience and for all your help during our stay and most of all Sweep the cat for keeping our chairs warm overnight and keeping watch sleeping on the doormat. Love and best wishes to you all, Tracy and Stuart (August 2014)
