Spacious, high quality accommodation spread across a carefully restored Vigneron's house, facing a lush, private courtyard garden, with mature trees, plants, flowers and plunge pool that wraps around an ancient barn. Just relax and soak up the French way of life, or alternatively stroll 3 minutes down the road to a Café wine bar called 'Dame Jane', selling excellent lunches, wines, local cheeses, honey and charcuterie. In the summer months they are open some weekend evenings for dinner. You can also order your bread and croissants from here for the next day. There are at least 3 wine producers in the village offering wine tastings.
The property comfortably sleeps up to 8 people with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 kitchens and 2 lounges arranged across separate areas. There is a stunning upstairs terrace for outside dining that looks down over the garden, or the whole group can comfortably eat inside in an atrium lounge-kitchen. The accommodation is arranged over two floors offering privacy for families or friends sharing the gite. There is Wi-Fi and a TV with wide selection of DVD’s.
The accommodation makes an ideal base to explore the Languedoc (a quieter, untouched 'Provence') and is 20 minutes from spectacular rivers and gorges and 40 minutes from the coast, where you can find beach restaurants and bars year round. There are also many wonderful local restaurants in the vicinity serving superb local sourced food. Alternatively you can eat in one of the many seafood restaurants along the coast.
The area is an excellent location for walking, bird-watching and many other outdoor pursuits and for the more energetic, the area offers, canoeing, golf, horse-riding, mountain biking, go-carting, paint ball, off road cycling and adventure parks nearby. There are numerous markets in the surrounding villages and towns and the renaissance town of Pezenas is 20 minutes away. If there's time, consider a visit to the historic quarter of Montpellier (1 hour), or the Roman amphitheatre at Nimes (1 hour 40 mins). The Languedoc offers a wealth of places to visit from Cathar castles, Roman towns, the Canal du Midi, coastal villages, local markets and wonderful beaches.
Last but not least, the region has been consistently voted one of the most exciting wine regions of France offering many opportunities to taste and buy a wide range of wines directly from the Domaines and Co-operatives.
