Excellent villa and good location
The villa was very clean and tidy. The bedrooms were of a good size. The kitchen was very well equipped. The pool was a perfect size.
We also like the location as a pleasant 15-minute walk to the old town but also well located for supermarkets - with E Leclerc and Aldi a short walk away and Carrefour a little bit further.
The check-in and check-out processes were all very smooth.
We would highly recommend staying here.
Thank you very much for writing such a positive review about your stay at Les Vignes Anciennes. It was no surprise that you found the kitchen very well equipped, as this is our home for the most part of the year. We are glad that you found the bedrooms a good size, and the pool a perfect size too. We had the house built for us in 2002 and chose this location in Pézenas both for its convenience to the local supermarkets and to be within easy walking distance of the town centre.
Thank you for choosing to stay at our villa in 2019. You would be very welcome to return at some time in the future.
Fantastic week at a Fantastic Villa !
It was our first time renting a villa and doing this type of holiday, in using the HomeAway site to choose and rent a Villa is made easy with its great layout and choices of properties.
The Villa itself was outstanding and catered for for the four of us during our week’s holiday, it really did feel like home from home with the added bonus of the fantastic pool and the good weather that week.
The property was very clean and was equipped with everything you would possibly need for your stay, Richard & Gill have thought about everything you would need to enjoy your holiday , we would highly recommend this villa for this region of France.
David & Carol.
Many thanks indeed for sparing the time to write such a positive review of our villa, Les Vignes Anciennes in Pézenas. We are so glad that as first time renters, you were able to have a good experience of this type of holiday; we hope that if you rent again in your future travels, your experiences will be equally as good. Many thanks again for your review and for choosing to stay at Les Vignes Anciennes in 2018; you and your family would, of course, be very welcome to come and stay again at some time in the future.
lovely, well equipped villa in a great location for exploring Languedoc
The villa is clean, spacious and well equipped although most of our time at the villa was spent around the BBQ and pool which is in the sun for the whole day.
Languedoc has a lot to offer and most things were within around an hours drive. Particular highlights for us were:
Pont du Gard/Nimes
Saint Guilhem le Desert
Whenever you go out take your swimming stuff, we found river swimming opportunities we were not expecting at Pont du Gard and St Guilhem le Desert. For children up to 70 there is plenty to do and we really enjoyed the Velo Rail du Larzac as we pedalled through part of the world UNESCO Parc Regional de Haut Languedoc.
Thank you very much for review of our villa after your stay there during July 2017. We are so glad that you and your party enjoyed your stay at Les Vignes Anciennes. Thank you for mentioning that the pool and barbecue are in the sun all day, despite being quite close to the house. This is because the front of the house is Southwest facing and when we had the house built, we could see that setting out the patio and the pool on the sunny side of the house had clear advantages. I must make a point of including this attribute in our advertising.
We agree that there is plenty to do in the Languedoc (now part of Occitanie) and are glad that you managed to see a few of the well known sites during your stay. We hope that you will return to the area to see some more and you would, of course, be very welcome to stay at Les Vignes Anciennes again at some time in the future.
Many thanks again,
Lovely, clean, well-placed villa
Just returned from a great stay at the villa. It was spotless, fully equipped and the pool was a big hit with our two small children. The owners organised a baby highchair and cot for us, which came in really handy. The property managers, Marie and Alex were also very helpful - particularly when a storm blew a fuse and left us with no power in a section of the house - Alex was over within an hour to help us get everything up and running again. Thank you.
Thank you very much for sparing the time to write a review about your stay at our villa; we are pleased that you enjoyed your time there and that the pool was much appreciated by your children. We are glad that our house management team were able to respond quickly to the power outage; it very rarely happens, so the lightning strike must have been pretty close!
You would, of course, be very welcome to return to Les Vignes Anciennes at some time in the future.

Excellent, villa, well equipped and very clean in quiet area about 15 mins walk to centre. Pool lovely and well maintained and excellent customer service from owner and local contacts. Pezenas is a lovely town and a good base for exploring the Languedoc but the pool and villa may keep you closer to home in hot weather. Lots of interesting buildings ( and a door museum!) in Pezenas and all the bars, cafes and restaurants you will need. We had a brilliant time and can heartily recommend Les Vignes Anciennes.
From the minute we booked with the owners, we have been delighted with the way we were treated. There was prompt communication and lots of appropriate info about the booking process, the villa and the area around it.
The villa was a real 'home from home' and even surpassed our expectations. It is equipped to a high level and beautifully furnished. The photographs do not do it justice. Although we did not need them, it was reassuring to know that English speaking agents were near at hand should we have required their help. The pool and it's surroundings were perfect for lazy days and family barbecues.
The town centre of Pezenas is only a stroll away and certainly lives up to its billing as one of the most beautiful towns in France. The Saturday market is fabulous and the Friday evening food and wine tasting is not to be missed ( get there early to secure a table!). There are lots of cafés, bars and restaurants to choose from and we never had a poor experience. An added benefit was having a good supermarket nearby.
There are plenty of interesting places nearby to keep the whole family occupied with lots of info available at the villa.
In case you haven't already guessed, we had fantastic holiday in this beautiful villa and the town of Pezenas.
Les Vignes Anciennes is located in the Vallée de l’Hérault, a beautiful area stretching from the Cevennes mountains down to the Mediterranean coast. Here are just a few of the countless places that you can visit in the region, many being reached easily by either the A9 or A75 autoroutes. You will find brochures for many of the attractions in the villa, but better still, plan a few trips at leisure before your departure using guidebooks or the departmental websites such as www.herault-tourisme.com .
Montpellier. 45 minutes drive away, Montpellier is a vibrant city with everything to offer the whole family, especially culture, shopping, restaurants and night-life. Start with the Place de la Comedie and you can’t go wrong. See http://www.montpellier.fr and other websites for more information.
Carcassonne. A great day out for the whole family, Carcassonne is the original citadel about 75 minutes drive to the west. Photos of the place just don’t do it justice. The defining moment is when you first approach the citadel and start to appreciate the sheer scale of it. Inside the citadel are lots of restaurants, artisanal shops (not to mention the church and museum) and nooks and crannies for the kids to play hide and seek! (www.tourism-carcassonne.co.uk/).
Aqualand - an exciting water park at Cap D’Agde (https://www.aqualand.fr/cap-d-agde/).
Dinosaur Park at Meze. Enjoy a trip back through time at the largest dinosaur park in Europe. (http://www.musee-parc-dinosaures.com). Less than 15 minutes from the villa.
Grotte des Demoiselles (http://www.demoiselles.com/) in Saint Bauzille de Putois, Ganges. An impressive set of caverns with one breathtakingly large “cathedral” cavern and a real atmosphere to it.
There are excellent spacious and sandy beaches within easy driving distance all along the coast. The nearest are Valras Plage, Vias Plage and the quieter Marseillan Plage and Serignan Plage.
The vibrant, modern port and resort town of Cap d’Agde is only a 25 minute drive away.
See the beaches section on the Herault tourism website http://www.herault-tourisme.com .
More for the Grown-ups.
St Guilhem-le-Desert. A very pretty medieval village and abbey at the bottom of the Herault gorge on the edge of the Cevennes.
La Couvertoirade. This fortified mediaeval village, on the high Cevennes plateau to the north, was once home to the Knights Templar. Walk round the battlements and visit the craft and specialist shops inside the fortifications.
Sete. A bustling, colourful fishing port, with canals and quaint areas as well as many shops and seafood restaurants. (http://www.ot-sete.fr)
Vineyards and wine tasting. Last, but not least are the countless vineyards in the region where you can enjoy tasting the many wines on offer such as Faugeres or Minervois. You don’t have to go very far from the villa; one of a couple vineyards that we like to use is the very typical and genuine Domaine Condamine l’Eveque in the village of Nezignan l’Eveque (5km), who sell their Cotes de Thongue wines to the Wine Society. For white wines from the distinctive appellation Picpoul de Pinet region visit the slightly more commercial Ormarine Winery in Pinet (10km), (www.cave-ormarine.com).
