About Lisa or Damian

We are an English couple living in the beautiful Languedoc region of France, our names are Damian and Lisa. We have been here since 2008 and have fallen in love with the stunning french countryside and the laidback lifestyle. Running our B&B and gite is completely different from our jobs back in the UK (Damian was a teacher and I was a PA), the best part about being here is meeting so many different people.

Lisa or Damian purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Lisa or Damian chose Saint-Geniès-de-Fontedit

There is just so much to see and do within a short drive, we have the coast 30 minutes drive away, with its stunning mediterranean beaches, the bustling towns of Montpellier, Narbonne, Perpignan, Carcassone and Beziers less than an hour away. To the north there is the Herault National Park with its breathtaking scenery of rugged mountains, rivers and gorges and then if that wasn't enough, there is the Canal du Midi, less than 30 minutes away. We also have the benefit of 300 days of sunshine every year, and we really do!

What makes this apartment unique

The property is an old winemakers house, which has been lovingly renovated to make a small B&B with a gite apartment on the top floor. The gite has the use of a private terrace with stunning views across vineyards to the hills of the herault national park. The gite has all the conveniences that you would need on a holiday, the village has a bakers, a small grocers shop, a Tabac, a post office, a pizza take away and a cafe/bar, during the summer, there are numerous fetes and events in the village, which are fascinating to watch. Its an experience of 'real' France, as the main work of the local villagers is still wine making. We also offer evening meals on certain nights throughout the week, to have in the apartment or in the dining room of the B&B.

Excellent Accommodation!

  • 4 of 5

Lovely, well-equipped apartment in a charming village, 35 minutes from the sea. Only lost out on 5 stars for the poor wifi connection.

Lisa and Damian were charming and helpful hosts, and were kind enough to recommend their own favourite resort of La Taramissiere, on the Herault river, which became our favourite too!

The local shopkeepers were very friendly and helpful. The boulangerie even baked some gluten-free bread especially for us, which was amazing.

Five days was too short a time to explore this wonderful wine-growing area.

We would definitely go back!

Lovely apartment at the top of a village house

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. It’s in a perfect spot for exploring the area. Pezanas, Beziers and Valras are all a short drive away.

The village has a bakery for fresh croissants and it was lovely to start the day with croissants and coffee on the roof terrace.

We enjoyed our stay so much that we’ve booked another trip for next year.

Excellent Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for two weeks. The English owners were really welcoming and gave us valuable tips about the many facilities and activities in the area.

The apartment itself was beautifully clean and we felt at home immediately. We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment (or the B&B rooms) to anyone who wants to spend time in this quiet and attractive village.
