300 years old - magical stone house in a small hamlet in the mountains

Bedrooms 1
Space 699 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

The stone house is located in the upper part of Le Lau - without transit traffic. Le Lau is a picturesque village with old stone houses and Mediterranean climate. From the parking at the brink of the village you reach the house afoot within 2 minutes and without ascent (approximately 100 m). To load and unload you can drive up to 15 m to the house! The access to the house is like a small terrace and can be used as an outdoor sitting (wooden bench available). There are many nice bathing possibilities in the nearby village, in the Gorges (canyons with great water pools with drinking water quality), 4 lakes within a radius of 40 km, and not quiet one hour by car to the Mediterranean Sea. The d'Heric-canyon is one of the prettiest of the Haut-Languedoc and can be conveniently reached afoot. The water basins row up like pearls on a necklace, uphill and connected through small cascades. To hike up to the Mont Caroux with its 1085 m and great view, you need to be in a reasonably good shape.

Beautiful romantic house in southern France

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Le Lau. The small town was super romantic and quiet. So much to do within an hours drive. The beaches were beautiful as were the mountains and vineyards. It was grape harvest time so the countryside smelled of grapes. The house was very quaint and offered anything one would need for two to four people. It was in a lovely little village and staying there made you feel as if you were a local. We loved every minute of it. The only thing that would have been more helpful was to have some instructions and information on the area in English. All that was available was in German which we could not read. Other than that our stay was delightful .

MItten im französischen Bergdörfchen

  • 5 of 5

haben wir es sehr genossen, in diesem wunderbaren Haus zu wohnen. Liebevoll eingerichtet, bot es uns einen Rückzugsort, den wir sehr ins Herz geschlossen haben. Das Kochen auf dem Gasherd hat Spaß gemacht, die Frühstücke und Abende auf der Terrasse sind unvergesslich

Sehr nettes Häuschen im Süden Frankreichs.

  • 5 of 5

Sehr schöne Unterkunft. Das Häuschen verfügt über alles, was man benötigt wenn man entspannen möchte. Meine Frau und ich haben die Zeit in Le Lau sehr genossen und kommen auch 2017 wieder. Für jeden der Abstand vom Alltag sucht, ist dieses Domizil einfach ideal um abzuschalten.

Le Lau is a small mountain village in Southern France located in the idyllic hills of the Mediterranean Cathar country and the wine country Languedoc - at the heart of the nature park 'Haut Languedoc'. Inhabited year-round and consists of about 25 houses. Le Lau is located in the hilly countryside of the Orb valley between Mons La Trivalle (shopping facilities) and Beziers. The river Orb can be reached by car within few minutes. There you find very pretty bathing spots. To go canoeing or by kayak the stations in Tarrassac, Vieussan or Roquebrun are very convenient. Roquebrun (café, restaurants, shops) is only 7 km away, which is called 'Nizza of Hérault' because of its micro climate. Large supermarkets can be found in Lamalou and Bedarieux (ca. 15 km) direction of the sea Cessenon (25 km). The Gorges d'Heric of Mons is about 10 km away, the Groges of Colombieres about 15 km, where you can enjoy the extraordinary mountain countryside of the Mont Caroux with its may crystal clear water.

Other Activities: Bathing in dreamlike landscapes, climbing, free climbing, explore grottos, mountain trips by horse, donkey or lama, canyoning, canoe/kayak, sea 55 km
