Apartment overview - owner's description
A former country house transformed into holiday apartments, spacious and comfortable luxury gites, fully equipped with private gardens and terraces and outdoor pools, you will feel at home on your holidays whether as a couple or as a family.
This former priory, a magic place chosen by the monks for its silence and calm, ideal for relaxation and meditation. Make the most of the tranquillity, the light, sunshine and Mediterranean climate.
Set in leafy grounds in a country setting, the Priory is built on the site of an ancient Roman villa, dating from the 7th and 8th centuries: a unique blending of past and present.
Ideal holiday destination for couples or families or for large family gatherings.
Situated in the countryside in the south of the Herault, with easy access from two motorways, two airports and the TGV, only 5 minutes from Pezenas, the former regional capital, and 20 mins from the Mediterranean, the Priory offers you a warm welcome.
This region is an area of dramatic contracts – we have miles and miles of glorious sandy beaches yet there is ski-ing to be found only a couple of hours away in the Pyrénnées. We have endless vineyards and a tour of this region reads like a wine list.
Inland are amazing gorges and rivers and a myriad of fortresses and castles dating from the bloodthirstly Cathar times.
- Fabulous hot, sunny weather.
- Beautiful long sandy beaches with shallow water, ideal for young children.
- Gorgeous countryside with miles and miles of vineyards, stunning rivers and gorges, pretty medieval villages and bustling cities.
- Wealth of historical monuments and castles, the amazing Cité of Carcassonne.
- Great dining experiences whether it be on the beach or in a medieval village amidst the vineyards.
- Good, locally produced wines at prices you won’t believe!
Here are some highlights, not to be missed!
The beaches at Valras Plage, Sérignan Plage and Narbonne Plage are all very suitable for children and a quieter option to the beaches closer to Cap d’Agde. They have sheltered bathing areas for children and Valras Plage has some great play equipment on the beach.
For ‘all the fun of the fair’ head to Cap d’Agde with the fabulous ‘Aqualand’ water sports park as well as plenty of water sports, boat trips, a beautiful harbour, golf, casino, fashionable shopping, nightclubs, waterfront restaurants and several children’s theme parks.
At Vias Plage, there is a funfair open during July and August called Europark which is very popular with teenagers.
Barcelona is just 2 1/2 hours away, easily achievable for a lunch in Spain!
About an hour to the south there are the Pyrenees.
Take a day trip (about 3 hours each way) to Andorra.
The Massif Central starts only a short distance to the north.
Not far away you can discover the ‘Pont du Gard’ en route to Provence
Renaissance Pezenas is worth a visit, with its winding cobbled stone streets housing Antique Shops and Art Galleries. There is a large open-air market every Saturday which is well worth a visit. The town boasts that it was once the home of Molière and there are many craft shops, restaurants and beautiful buildings. During July and August the craft shops are open until midnight some nights and you will often find street theatre groups to entertain you !
The architecture and the streets of the village are worth a detour. The centre has been magnificently maintained and renovated and the town has a tradition of street entertainers and artists, with theatricalised guided tours and numerous art galleries and artists’ workshops.
Worth a visit on Saturday for the large market. The food market closes at 12 noon but everything else stays open. Wander through the old quarter, the artisan shops are very interesting and are all one off individual stores.
A blend of stone and wood for the sitting room which leads onto the courtyard and the garden.
Three dining areas - one indoors, one on the covered patio and one in the garden shaded by plane trees – complement this living space for a family of 4, with exposed beams, large fireplace and 18th century furniture in harmony with the predominantly blue canvases representing the sea and the beach.
All at ground level, easy access for people of limited mobility.

This apartment has the use of 2 swimming pools, an outdoor pool (6m x 12m) with baby pool (4m x 4m)and a peaceful outdoor adult pool (6m x 13m) and sunbeds.
Private garden with a table and seating for up to 4 people,
2 sunbeds and a BBQ.
These gardens have been divided up and laid out for different purposes:
Reception area: open to the outside and laid out for car parking in the shade of the trees – pines, plane trees and carob trees. You will be greeted at the entrance gates by a magnificent spring flowering mimosa and yuccas which flower up until Christmas.
Courtyard garden: the former interior courtyard transformed into a garden, surrounded on all four sides by buildings; in the centre an 8th century well. The varied flowerbeds and typical Mediterranean plants (palm trees, cypress trees, laurel bushes, bamboo, and pomegranate) shelter the private gardens, offering relaxation and intimacy for all guests. In the centre, a thousand and one scents: orange blossom, roses, vervein, laburnum, wisteria, begonias, jasmine, and irises. The variety of flowers ensures that the garden is in bloom 12 months of the year.
Riverside garden: bordering and shading the ancient Roman road, the oaks, plane trees, cedar trees, Judas tree and eucalyptus covering and sheltering the stream where generations of children have built dens and caught tadpoles.
Gardens and pools: allowing you to alternate sun bathing and resting in the shade of fig trees, olive trees and pine trees.
Leisure gardens: for ball games, badminton, table tennis or boules, for reading in the shade of the pine trees, the chestnut trees or in the gazebo, these gardens are ideal for relaxing. During your stay, you might come across squirrels, observe hoopoes, turtle doves and pipistrelle bats, see geckos lazing in the sun and appreciate the flocks of birds which take advantage of the abundant greenery and security of the setting.
The discovery of this place will not fail to surprise and enchant you.
