We spent a lovely week at La Bergerie in August where our only disappointment was it wasn't two weeks.
The owners were so attentive to our needs making sure we had everything we required, without ever imposing on our stay. The cottage is well appointed, all the rooms are adequately sized and everywhere was clean on arrival. We are a family of 5 and had plenty of space, although the cottage will comfortably house 6.
Outside there is so much space, perfect if you have children who like to run around. The swimming pool is a lovely size and not too deep. We are keen runners and found several routes away from main roads which were perfect. They would be equally perfect if you just prefer a stroll. Or just sit around on one of the two terraces and enjoy the sun.
There are supermarkets 5 minutes away in two directions so you have a lot of choice where to shop. Pezenas is equally close and is a lovely place to wander around with some great restaurants. Don't forget to visit the market on Saturday but be warned, it gets very busy. If you're looking to have a beach day, there are lots to choose from. We visited Vias Plage twice which is about 25 minutes drive. The beach and sea are perfect for children, even those who can't swim well. The sea is quite shallow and stays shallow for some distance.
If there was one thing people should know, then it's that the property stands quite close to the D13. This is a main road and can get busy. It really didn't affect us. You can hear the traffic but the property sits down, away from the road. When you're in the pool or on the lower terrace you don't really notice it. We never noticed it inside the cottage.
All in all, we would highly recommend La Bergerie and would have no hesitation in returning.
An excellent week spent in this gite. Felt very at home around a beautiful pool and stunning views of the valley. Benno is an excellent host and the gite has everything you need and more! The location is excellent for visits to the spectacular Hérault and Orb valleys . Recommend canoeing on both rivers and the hike up the Gorges Héric is a must . There are plenty of villages of interest to visit and the coast is not too far away . The life in the village is very quiet and there is no cafe or restaurants so you do need a car and be prepared to cook or eat a drive away. The gite has everything you need to prepare meals and Benno is quite happy for guests to use the terraces around the pool for outdoor dining. We were happy to eat outside the gite. We had a great week and have every intention of returning!
