After a day of exploring the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France, it’s nice to know that there is a beautiful, comfortable apartment that awaits you. Sit in the Salon/Cuisine and enjoy local delicacies you’ve discovered over a bottle of local wine before dinner. The French have perfected the art of living well, and this apartment has been outfitted to help you achieve this with ease.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge, freezer, oven, stove, microwave and dishwasher, Nespresso coffee maker, kettle, and toaster. There is even a clothes washing machine at your disposal in the apartment. Many of these amenities simply don’t exist with other rentals in the area.
"L’Appartement Des Artistes" has two bedrooms. The Master bedroom has 4 metre high ceilings, large french windows, Juliet Balcony and a European Queen sized bed. The guest bedroom has two single beds, and features original beams in the ceiling. This apartment is perfect for two couples, or a family of four.
Each room is freshly made up for your arrival with linens and towels. This property is completely prepared in advance with a complementary bottle of chilled wine awaiting to celebrate your arrival...all that is left to do is unpack your bags and begin enjoying your vacation time in the “Midi”.
The Rough Guide to Languedoc - Roussillon calls Pézenas, “One of the most singularly beautiful towns in the French Southwest, endowed with an overwhelming concentration of grand architecture”. Thanks to Armand de Bourbon, Prince of Conti, Pézenas was considered the “second Versailles” in the late 17th century. This drew wealth, artists and playwrights of the caliber of Moliere all seeking to gain favour and patronage from the court.
Today, Pézenas has an incredibly well preserved Old Town filled with outdoor restaurants, artisans, and entertainment. Seasonal festivals, celebrations and a huge Saturday market take place year-round in Pézenas and it’s neighbouring villages. Located in the middle of the largest wine growing region in all of France, and less than a half hour drive from the Mediterranean beaches. Simple pleasures are abound.
With so many things to see and do in the Languedoc-Roussilon, Pézenas is ideally situated. The town of Pézenas itself is beautiful and vibrant. From buying bread and tasty treats at the local boulangerie, people watching at a one of the town’s outdoor cafés, or exploring one of the many antique shops (Brocantes), Pézenas has so much to offer. The Old Town is rich with history and fine architecture, and full of unique artisan shops and fine restaurants. What’s more, Pézenas has one of the best year-round Saturday Markets in the area. All of this and more is just steps away from "L’Appartement des Artistes #1"
Some of the finest beaches in Southern France are a short drive away, but there is so much more to this area than sun and sand. Incredible sites like Pont de Gard, the medeval ramparts of Carcassone, or visiting cities like Montpellier, Narbonne, Beziers, Nimes and Arles. These all make wonderful day-trips from Pézenas. Don't forget, every Saturday the Market is in full swing, or that during the summer: The Old Town is open twice a week until midnight, and Fridays are reserved for Estival. Truly, there are so many things to see and do. You will need more than a week just to scratch the surface of this enchanting area.
