Make A Holiday Rental Cottage in Laurens, France, Your Home Away From Home

Laurens is a pretty French village sitting amongst gentle vineyards, beneath the hills of the Massif Central, which loom large to the north. The village is ideally located to explore the exciting and varied landscapes of the Languedoc-Roussillon region, down in the south of France. Here you will find some varied and distinctive self-catering accommodation - including holiday apartments, rural gites and lovely well-furnished villas. The area is well-regarded by wine-lovers, for its famous Faugère wines and the vineyards make a lovely backdrop for your stay on your holidays in Laurens.

Things to Do on Holiday in Laurens, France

The village of Laurens is worth lingering in, allowing you to become well-versed in the rural calm and unhurried pace of the South of France. A short car ride away, to the south, lies the sunny warmth of the Mediterranean coast. Here you can indulge in the simple and relaxing pleasures of a day at the beach - sun-bathing, swimming in the sea and enjoying the seaside resorts and water parks. There is also much to do, for those of an active bent, in the surrounding areas of Herault. To the north are the ancient hills and peaks of the Massif Central. These forested, unspoilt wildernesses are superb for a range of activities - from cycling and hiking, to swimming and canoeing in the rivers. More than enough to keep you busy on your holidays in Laurens!

Places to Visit on Holiday in Laurens, France

A great place to start is the charming local town of Beziers, a short ride to the south. This town is at one end of the Canal-du-Midi, which runs between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, across the south of France. Boats can be hired from Villeneuve-les-Beziers and a wonderful day's journey up the canal can be had. The town has a great selection of shops and markets and is also culturally inclined, with a Fine Arts Museum hosting a van Gogh, among many other fine paintings. Further afield lies Carcassonne, an ancient fortified city which really does present an astonishing fairy-tale castle panorama.

Weather in Laurens, France

Because your holidays in Laurens will not be far from the Mediterranean, the climate is excellent – it is hot, sunny and dry throughout most of the summer. Temperatures in summer readily top 30°C and the area is known as one of the sunniest in France. The autumn and winter is somewhat wetter, but temperatures are not cold, falling to an average of 11 degrees Celsius in January. However, it is over the winter that the winds of the “tramontane” are prevalent. These blow down from the Massif Central, under certain weather conditions and can continue for weeks on end.

Travel to Laurens, France

Visitors who are keen to rent accommodation in Laurens have a couple of options for air travel. Both Beziers (BZR) and Montpellier (MPL) are connected by direct flights to the UK. Ryanair flies from Bristol (BRS) and London Luton (LTN), to the closest airport at Beziers. And both Ryanair and easyJet fly into Montpellier from Leeds (LBA), London Gatwick (LGW) and London Heathrow (LHR). Rail travel on the high-speed TGV trains, down to Montpellier, is another good option, especially since the direct connection to London St Pancras was made.

The property was very clean and tidy and had everything we needed as a family of four. The well equipped kitchen complete with ice-making fridge freezer came in very handy as did the air-con as we had 7 days of 30c+ temperatures. The free wifi is a bonus and although it's only a slow speed (kept the kids off YouTube for a week!) it's more than adequate for surfing and finding info on the surrounding areas. The satellite TV was excellent (when I figured out we had it!) and the outside area i lovely. The free BBQ equipment is a nice touch. Only one downside and that was the pool. It was empty with no indication of when it was going to be opened which was disappointing for our boys but we weren't the only ones, some of the other people on the site were complaining too. Some of which were owners it seems. All in all a lovely, well looked after villa with everyhting you could want. Bev the owner is very quick to reply and extremely helpful at all times, needless to say we will be rebooking as well as recommending to our friends and family.

Lynda and Simon are such lovely people but are very keen for visitors to have their own space. The pool was amazing as the weather was so hot and to have the pool at your disposal is great. Cessenon-sur-orb is a beautiful village just a short walk across the bridge to the bars and restaurants. The accommodation is really comfortable and ideal for a couple. We enjoyed every minute and were made very welcome. We would love to go back one day and would highly recommend it to anybody.
