Welcome to L'Oasis in Lespignan! This house has to be seen to be believed. It sleeps up to 9 adults in four bedrooms (+ one foldaway bed and baby cot), and is in the heart of lovely, traditional Languedoc village, 100m from restaurants and shops, just 10 minutes from closest beach. Peaceful but near the action. Just 15 mins from Beziers Airport (new Ryanair route!) and others Ryanair airports Montpellier, Carcassonne, and Perpignan. Minutes fro main autoroute. Before the highly original conversion, local winemakers deposited their grapes and stored wine here. One of the wine vats ('cuves') has been opened to make a large and spacious bathroom. The courtyard hosts a Mediterranean garden with private swimming pool, aBBQ and dining area. The interior is fascinating. On three levels, original beams and stone sinks lie in situ with bleached and stained floorboards, paint-washed walls in Mediterranean colours, further flagstone and terracotta floors with glass-blocks in both walls and ceiling. Free wifi. Great for groups!
