Location and Map
This marker is for indication purpose only
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.

There is a family dog on site, Maddie, who is a young, very friendly Labrador/Collie cross.
Welcome basket on arrival with all starter basics ie coffee, tea, milk, sugar, wine, water, orange juice, pasta and provençale sauce, biscuits and crisps as well as a few dishwasher and washing machine tablets to get you started.
This gîte actually provides you with everything that you will need for your first night if necessary - a drink and a pasta meal from the Welcome basket - but also all the extras including toiletries, toilet rolls, kitchen roll, bin bags, hand soap, washing up liquid etc so you do not need to go to the shops on your first night at all if you wish!
If you would like the owners to get some shopping for you then please just ask and they can provide cheese, ham, fruit, baguette, cereal or whatever you fancy. Read the Testimonials from our guests this year - nothing is too much trouble!
Some road noise can be heard from the pool and garden at times but not enough to disturb anyone.
We have found the gite very comfortable and well equipped. Nice beds, good shower, everything clean. We appreciated the welcome pack, the copious towels, the soap in the bathroom etc. It made our first day easy.
We enjoyed the pool area and found eating on our own terrace very pleasurable. You made us feel very welcome around the grounds at the Domaine du Pin. You struck the balance perfectly between offering hospitality and giving us our own space.
We loved the region - the canoeing in Roquebrun was particularly good. We recommend Les Platanes in Poilhes - great restaurant, although you can't practise your French there as they are English.
We had a great holiday!

We found staying in the gite very quiet and relaxing. Exactly what we wanted. We spent a lot of time in the pool area as we had lovely weather. We had a lovely welcoming and a nice holiday. Thank you to Juliana and Mary for letting us stay here!

We have had a wonderfully relaxing week - much needed after our daughters wedding and a house move. The generous welcome basket really was welcoming and so thoughtful! Along with the provision of beach towels, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets etc. All those things sets Domaine du Pin in a league of its own and are so much appreciated. Likewise Juliana and her family were always helpful and we really appreciated Juliana's kindness in driving us to a restaurant.
Highlights were a trip to Roquebrun to canoe and a fantastic meal at La Tour Sarasine in Poilhes.
Thank you so much! We have had a great holiday!

What a fantastic holiday in an amazing location. We are definitely converts to French wine! The kids (3yrs and 21 months) had a great time too. Loved the safari park at Sigean but out of season we had the place pretty much to ourselves. Roquebrun was stunning and worth exploring other little villages around there that aren't in the guidebook. The beach at Sete was empty and so big there was space to roam and collect shells. Carcassonne was amazing, although at the height of the holiday season it may be a little crazy!
The gite was great and lovely to feel as if we were away from all the tourists, living like the locals. A wonderful area we will all definitely be recommending to friends and family.
