About Rose Retreat at Domaine du Pin - INSTANT BOOK
Rose Retreat is a wonderfully furnished and decorated 2 bedroom gîte, located on a private and family owned Domaine, surrounded by beautiful fields and vineyards. The gorgeous outside terrace areas offer privacy and comfort, as well as pretty views and atmosphere.
Enter the property from a rural road, through electric gates and down the impressive drive towards this wonderful Domaine. The gîte forms part of the main house of Domaine du Pin, part of which was built in 1832 with further extensions built on over the years, making it the comfortable family-owned home that it is today.
Home to a friendly English family who have lived and worked in the area for 17 years, they will be available to help you with your every wish and need; with deciding where to spend the day or to help arrange any trips for you, with the possibility of baby-sitting services as well.
The accommodation consists of an air-conditioned open plan room, complete with a smart kitchen area, breakfast bar, a seating area, wifi, and French doors opening onto a large private terrace, where you will find a table and chairs for outdoor dining, a garden sofa for relaxing, a BBQ, a parasol and sun-loungers for those relaxing days spent reading in the sun.
The indoor seating area consists of two sofas, a small flat screen TV with UK satellite channels, and a coffee table. There is a second open plan room with a kitchen area, dining table for 2 with doors onto another large and private terrace located at the front of the property.
There are two bedrooms in the gîte, one with a double bed and the other is a twin. Both bedrooms have a wardrobe and air-conditioning, and windows to the rear of the property, with a view over the back garden.
The bathroom is spacious and has a walk in shower, basin and bidet, separate WC and a washing machine.
Please read the many Testimonials for this property as they will give you a good idea of the property, facilities and location.
The outside space of Domaine du Pin is impressive and is where the property sees its charm. A large 8m x 4m swimming pool (enclosed by a wall and gate) is shared with the occupants of the second gite (just 2 people) and very occasionally with the owners.
The garden is very large with lawn areas, olive trees, fig, apple and pear trees, mature shrubs and Mediterranean plants.
There is a newly built summerhouse, built with driftwood and using a beach theme. Here you will find a shaded dining area, a comfortable area for relaxing or reading as well as the hot tub. Exterior lighting for those late night swims and jacuzzi!
In the garden you will find our new boules court and on the terrace is the ping pong table plus a football goal in the side garden area.

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.

The English owners live on site and they will be able to give you all the information and tips that you need. Places to go, things to see, restaurants etc.

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 in a bit of 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 noise from the road can be heard from the pool and garden at times but not enough to disturb anyone.
Iain (June 2018) - “This property is in a great location, it's about 20 minutes to some great beaches and within an hour from great cities like Montpellier and Carcassonne (there are also plenty of really pretty villages not far away to explore as well). There are also some lovely restaurants nearby too! The place itself is a great size and it has everything you need for a comfortable stay (BBQ, washing machine, dishwasher), there was even a welcome basket for us when we arrived so there were some things to eat before we managed to go to the shops.”
LONG TERM WINTER LETS available on this property - please ask for details.
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)
