Make a holiday rental home or cottage in Vieussan, France your home away from home

The village of Vieussan is rightly regarded as one of the most picturesque holiday spots in the Languedoc-Roussillon region. Located on a hill in the beautiful Gorges de l’Orb, Vieussan is rich in medieval history and surrounded by stunning mountain scenery. For a truly authentic vacation in a traditional French winemaking village, consider villas and townhouses in Vieussan for your next holiday rental.

Things to do in Vieussan, France

Vieussan is an ideal destination for those seeking a predominantly relaxing break, but who want to have the option of activities and day trips should they desire. The medieval village sits on a hill and has a population of just 260, so those seeking to escape the tourist crowds and enjoy an authentic French holiday will be well at home here.

Although there are not huge numbers of bars and dining options in the village centre, what there is of a high quality. Le Lezard Bleu cafe-restaurant is something of a local institution, and places a strong emphasis on using local ingredients for their excellent value for money dishes. Local cheeses and wines always figure prominently on the menu, and can be enjoyed to the stunning backdrop of the surrounding river and mountains. Vieussan has long associations with winemaking, and is home to both large and small vineyards and wine production companies, making the village an excellent destination for a wine tasting trip.

The Upper Languedoc Regional Nature Park is just a short distance away, and a great place to head for enjoyable nature walks and hikes. Bird watching and fishing are just some of the other activities to choose from in this unspoilt area of natural beauty. The beaches of the Mediterranean can also be reached within under an hour, adding another option for those visiting Vieussan.

Perfect family holiday, fab location, veiws, house

5 of 5
Our third year back at this fantastic gem of a propery in a gorgeous region of France with lots of activities in the area for all the family. A real find in a stunning location, amazing views with its own private beach! You can enjoy hanging out at the villa, going to the river on kayaks or swimming or chilling reading a book! Kids were happy exploring too. The house itself (we actually have stayed in both Le Roque and Le Piscine) are typically French in style but with all amenities and tastefully decorated - clean and comfortable, most importantly. The picturesque Roquebrum is only 10 mins away, where we found there are some great family places to eat (good pizza place), and going further say just 20 mins on you can get to Cessanon to the local french market on Saturday.

Happy memories

5 of 5
The fact that we have been three times, once to Rivière and twice to Piscine, is a clear indication of our enjoyment of the property and all it has to offer. It is peaceful, spacious, comfortable and generously provided, and it has the most wonderful views of the river, the bridge and the old village on the hill. We hear that the pool is being refurbished, which will add greatly to the amenity. The Orb valley is very attractive, offering a variety of activities for people of all ages. Communication with the owners has been friendly and efficient.

Spotlessly clean. A real home from home. The house has everything you could want.

Lovely and quiet. Easy distance to other great destinations. Off road parking. Incredibly welcoming. And it was reaching temperatures of 16°C in January!!!
