Apartment overview - owner's description
This region is an area of dramatic contracts with miles and miles of glorious sandy beaches yet there is ski-ing to be found only a couple of hours away in the Pyrenees. 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 Cityof 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 wonï¿½t believe!
Here are some highlights, not to be missed!
The beaches at Valras Plage, Serignan 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 childrens theme parks.
At Vias Plage, there is a funfair open during July and August called Europark which is very popular with teenagers.
At Grau d Agde you can take a guided excursion between the Canal du Midi, Thau lagoon and the Herault river. Also boat trips available at Valras Plage, either trips up the coast or even sea fishing ones.
CANAL DU MIDI
Take the time to visit the Canal du Midi, a beautiful tree-lined Canal which links the Atlantic with the Mediterranean anc which has miles of flat walks along the shady tow paths. Explore it on rollerblades, on horseback, by bike, by barge or simply on foot. Whichever you choose, it will be an ideal way to discover one of the longest canals in France.
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
Several good golf courses are within easy reach, Golf Saint Thomas at Bï¿½ziers, approx 20 minutes drive, see www.golfsaintthomas.com/english/
There are plenty of places offering horse-riding in the area. One is the St Jean Ranch in Serignan Plage which offers a range of activities such as excursions, horse-drawn carriage rides, horse rides on the beach or at sunset, and even excursions for experienced riders.
Portiragnes Plage also has a horse riding stables ï¿½ coming from Portiragnes towards Portiragnes Plage, you will see it on your left just before you get to the town.
We have so many lovely traditional wine-producing villages in this area, all with weekly street markets and of course those sun-blessed Mediterranean beaches. If you enjoy the atmosphere of medieval streets, you will love walking through the old part of these villages, with their tiny squares, ancient porches and ramparts. Most villages have several fetes and festivals throughout the year, including the famous processions with floral floats.
The village of Minerve is classified as one of the Prettiest villages in France and is worth a trip. It is off to right on the way to Carcassonne is a must for those interested in the history of the Cathars.
Many of the local vineyards offer free tours and wine-tasting. There is one at La Baume between Beziers and Pezenas and the tour was offered in English. Great fun and very interesting to see how they turn the grapes into wine.
The coastal plain provides literally hundreds of Domaines for superb wine-tasting - its obligatory! Samples will be generous, and in many cases guided tours are provided.
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 Moliere 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. A destination particularly appreciated by the British due to its luxurious charm and refined boutiques, Pezenas has a wealth of buildings and hotels in characteristic architecture.
Moliïere built up his success in Pezenas, which he had chosen as his favourite place to stay. The town is also the birthplace of the singer Boby Lapointe and maintains its tradition as a town of street entertainers and artists, with theatricalised guided tours and numerous art galleries and artists workshops.
The town also has several unusual museums such as the museum of toys and delights of yesteryear, or the door and wrought iron museum.
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.
This house would formerly have been the estate managers property and is arranged as a separate dwelling. The roof of the 18th century bread oven graces the living room and the staircase leading to two spacious bedrooms, flooded with sunlight and with a view over the vines.

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 “Saint Martial” 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.
