About Paul Johnson

I am a Gloucestershire GP and perhaps unsurprisingly my partner Pamela is a community nurse. We purchased our house in France 14 years ago and a Ski apartment in Bansko Bulgaria 7 years ago with our good friends.

We welcome dogs to our house in France - for an extra fee (to cover extra cleaning costs). Our choccie lab Alfie has been to La Paisible and loved it

Paul Johnson purchased this house in 2000

Why Paul Johnson chose Mons

We bought in Languedoc because we felt it was a more genuinely French and unspoilt area than Provence (and cheaper!). We have easy access to fabulous walking, many great restaurants, the wines of the Languedoc area and the Mediterranean beaches. The house is very quiet and private. The village has all the amenities you need for your holiday with a village shop and pub and 2 restaurants. the bakery is especially French and sells great breakfast fayre 6 -7 days a week depending on the season.

What makes this house unique

You can wake up in complete quiet.

Walk down the quiet lane to pick up your fresh croissants etc for breakfast.

Pick up milk etc from the local shop.

Laze around the pool all day or go walking up the awesome Gorge d'Heric. You can lunch and siesta on the patio, there is shade from the retractable awning. Taste some wine at the local cellar before your own meat/fish on the barbeque.

Alternatively you can visit one of the many local restaurants.

Alternatively a short drive to the beach beckons or to Lac du Salagou.


you can visit one of Lamalou les Bains, Olargues, Beziers, Montpelier, Nimes, St. Guilheme de desert, Narbonne or Carcassonne or Perpignan.

Secluded French House With Private pool In Haut Languedoc National Park
average rating of 4.0 based on 3 reviews

Six go to the Haut Languedoc National Park.

  • 4 of 5

We (six adults) had all that was required for a peaceful stay, it was November after all. The pool being unavailable was perhaps a good thing for the time of year.

The house was roomy and spacious enough for all without being in each others pockets. The equipment provided was adequate for six adults. We made good use of the BBQ whilst we were there.

Peace and tranquility

  • 4 of 5

The listing was more than accurate and the house was far better than the pictures or details show. We had our dogs with us and they had a great time, there is a cycle path that leads from the village and goes for miles so this was a great place to walk with them traffic free and the Auberge was at the end of the walk which was a bonus, there are many places to visit and we went out each morning and returned at lunch to have lazy afternoons under the lovely mature trees in the garden and dipping in and out of the lovely pool well tended by Eric the gardener. The property was well cleaned when we arrived and had very adequate furnishings and garden furnishing also, the barbeque was used each day by us for dinner and we all enjoyed that whilst having various bottles of wine to test from the local vineyard. The boulangerie was great for our daily bread and only a few minutes away in the village. With having the dogs we didn't tend to eat out much and found the local supermarkets great for shopping and trying out new foods , all in all it was a very relaxing place to go and everyone felt very relaxed and de stressed and enjoyed the stay very much.
