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.

Pat and Mel's home is charming, comfortable, and tastefully decorated with unique touches throughout. I enjoyed my time cooking (love the kitchen!), taking walks through the vineyards surrounding the village (this time of year the leaves are just starting to fill out the vines and the bursts of green cover the Herault Valley), and even this early in the season it was warm enough to laze in the sun on the patio (the weather was great!). I love this property and location because it's easy to be active and venture out (winery visits, Lac de Salagou was a great hike leaving from Cirque de Moureze, farm stands, a city fix in Montpellier) and is equally and sometimes even more satisfying to just stay put. The house feels like it's set up for and afternoon of reading on the comfy couch or on the patio and your feet in the pool (with a chilled rosé or lemonade, bien sur!). Pat and Mel were available throughout the booking process and it is clear they work hard to ensure their guests have everything they need for an easy and carefree stay. They always respond quickly. Their recommendation to check out the flower market in Beziers (Friday mornings) was smashing and they also pointed me in the direction of the super-local Barrage des Olivettes where we took a quick swim (super refreshing). I will definitely recommend them to friends visiting the south of France and look forward myself to another visit to see Maison in another season. Merci and thank you!!

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.
