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.

My partner and I had a wonderful relaxing holiday which is just what the doctor ordered! The house was spotless when we arrived and everything you could possibly need is provided. The bedrooms are spacious with plenty of storage, the bathroom is amazing with large walk in shower and huge tub bath should you want it. The kitchen opens out at the back onto a large courtyard with somewhere to sit out and have your meals in the summer. The garden is not overlooked and has a lovely pool which is small but large enough to actually swim in... very welcome in the hot summer sun! Plenty of sun loungers for relaxing in and even fresh figs, plums, grapes and hazelnuts if you are there at the right time of the year. For cooler evenings there is a wood burner in the huge sitting room if you are there out of the summer season. The village has a shop, bakery and butcher and somewhere to even get take away pizza. There is a very well stocked supermarket nearby. We had a fantastic day out canoeing on the River Orb - definitely recommend it! The beach is about an hour away and the wonderful town of Pezanas is worth a visit with late night artisan shopping through atmospheric narrow lanes with plenty of places to eat. We even managed to go jogging around the village in the surrounding countryside if that is something you are interested in! All in all an amazing week. We would definitely recommend and will be visiting again.

It is really very spacious and has absolutely everything you need to make your stay comfortable, we spent most of our days exploring the area but did spend a couple of days around Autignac, using the pool, eating Al fresco on the terrace whilst the children had a splash. The other area we used quite alot was the open plan, dining, living area with it's exposed beams. On a number of evenings we would eat in the house just making a simple pasta or rice dish, perhaps with some fish from the visiting fish monger on Thursday morning but other times we ate at the local bar which is plenty cheap enough and does decent food as well as being in the church square area so it really was nice on a hot summers evening. Each morning was started by an early morning walk to the local boulangerie for their delicious bread and there are a couple of local shops selling fresh fruit, veg cheeses, sausages, and a selection of wine and beers. One of the shops, just up the road from this house was very helpful and giving us a bit of direction around the area to local vinyards for degustations etc. Just behind the house is Chateaux Autignac which has been totally renovated and you can often pop in their for a wine tasting for their Pres Lasses range of wines which we all thought were very nice and good value too. Stephanie, the Sommelier really knows her stuff and is a bit of a gem at helping you find nice places to visit also. We just walked up to the place and asked if they were doing wine tastings and immediately we were taken down for a tastng. Very good. Like I said before the area of Autignac is an ideal base to explore this lovely region. Montpellier, Beziers, Carcassonne are all in easy reach as are the beaches and nearby the village of Roquebrun was great for swimming in the river and enjoying a spot of lunch. The couple next door were on hand if you ever had any questions and the lady who came to do the cleaning was also helpful but to be fair, just about everyone we met were on the helpful side, like they really wanted you to enjoy the area. Bill, one of the owners, gave us a call on on our second day to recommend a few things to us but there is a comprehensive information file in the house. The beds were also very comfortable, didn't mention that before and also worth a mention (having stayed in holiday lets a lot) there is a lot of kitchen equipment. 5*
