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

Olargues is noted as one of the most beautiful villages in France, and when you are sitting in your gite, overlooking this most picturesque of villages, you will readily see why. The village sits on the rounded hills above the River Jaur, at the foot of the Caroux Mountains, in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France. This region lies at the boundary between the Mediterranean coast-lands of the south of France, and the rising mountains of the Massif Central; it is very popular with tourists, and has a large variety of gites, holiday cottages and villas, self catering accommodation in Olargues to suit all tastes.

Things to Do on Holiday in Olargues, France

Olargues is a fabulous place to relax, stroll and potter about, with its lovely mountainous backdrop, fascinating castle-cum-church tower, and elegantly arching bridge. But with such an interesting, and varied, landscape at the doorstep of your gite, there is a plethora of other activities to cater for all on your holidays in Olargues. Mountain biking, caving, rock climbing and abseiling, for the adventurous; golf, wine-tasting and bathing, at the spas of Lamalou les Bains, for those inclined to be more relaxed. It is also a real treat to just get in the rental car and take a pleasant drive around the gorgeous landscape of the Bedarieux area.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Olargues, France

Olargues sits in the narrow valley of the River Jaur, which leads naturally to the interesting little town of Bedarieux; this is home to the intriguing La Maison des Arts, an art gallery and contemporary art centre, as well as some great shops and an impressive viaduct. An absolutely stunning natural feature, nearby, are The Gorges d’Héric; this set of deep cuts into the Monts de l’Espinouse is only a short drive away, and is very popular with rock climbers.

Weather in Olargues, France

Not surprisingly, being so close to the Mediterranean coast of France, the climate here in Olargues is generally dry and hot in summer, and somewhat milder and wetter in winter. The summer months can see temperatures hitting the high twenties degrees Celsius and days of sunshine at this time of year are renowned. Winter temperatures slip down to 9-12 degrees Celsius, in January and February. Rainfall is limited and concentrated mainly in the autumn months - although occasional summer downpours can't be ruled out.

Travel to Olargues, France

To travel for your holidays in Olargues by air, you can choose from one of two regional airports, which both offer excellent budget travel options.

Fully equipped comfortable base for exploring the region

5 of 5
The gites are situated adjacent to the owner's (Wendy and Pat) house, about 3 km south of Capestang. On arrival, Wendy offered us the choice of either gite - it was a difficult choice as both are delightful, very comfortable, and fully equipped; we opted for the one Wendy had prepared to cause least upheaval. Out gite was spotlessly clean, with an ample relaxation area (with choice of British or French TV!), separate dining area, and a sizeable, fully equipped - and I mean fully! - kitchen area. Upstairs are two nicely sized bedrooms with great views, comfortable beds, and ample hanging/drawer space; the modern bathroom is also found on this floor. Outside, to the front is the entrance drive with ample parking; to the rear, there is a personal alfresco dining table just outside, but also many more to choose from dotted around the large garden. The pool is perfect for cooling off on the typical hot days from May to September - and just as nice to lounge around soaking up the sun. The whole setting is completely rural, with fantastic distant views all around. Wendy and Pat are the most delightful hosts, very friendly, informative, and helpful - on arrival, we found that Wendy had provided bread, milk, tea, sugar, biscuits, cheese, and a bottle of a superb wine; living next door, it was reassuring to know there was always help on hand if necessary, but otherwise, they were both completely low profile. We stayed for a week towards the end of October - for a change, we didn't want the usual hot, sunny, pool-dipping, lounger-reclining sort of holiday, we wanted cooler weather to explore the region thoroughly. Nevertheless, we still enjoyed warm, sunny days, and visited several very interesting historical sites, and, of course, the various seaside resorts. That's another great thing about the location - just far enough away to feel completely rural, but only 30 minutes drive from the coast, 20 minutes from Narbonne, 10 minutes to Capestang, and 5 minutes to Lidl! All in all, we had a really wonderful stay and can thoroughly recommend either gite to families or couples who can enjoy a lazy, relaxing holiday around the pool, or use the stay as a base for touring the region - or a bit of both.

A well equipped gite in a lovely location.

5 of 5
We spent an enjoyable week in Le Fleurie during the last week in October. The weather in late October was warm and sunny – between 20 and 25 degrees each day with clear blue skies. Roger and Jane were very welcoming hosts, with lots of recommendations for places to eat and visit. The gite is situated in a pleasant village and it was a treat to be able to walk to the village shop each morning for fresh bread and pastries. A walk of 25 minutes through the vineyard takes you to Le Somail which has 4 restaurants. The gite itself is very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The layout of the gite suited our family of 4 but it would also be perfect for 3 couples as each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. The garden is very private and consists of an outdoor eating and sun- bathing area next to a private pool. Mirepeisset is only 35 minutes from lovely beaches at Gruissan Plage and Franqui Plage, pleasant fishing villages at Bages and Peyriac de mer, inland you can visit Carcassonne, any of the Cathar Castlles or the lovely village of Minerve. If you like to bike, walk or run (as we do) then you will find lots of trails to explore nearby. Or you might prefer to stumble between vineyards because the place is surrounded by them!
