Superb, child friendly beaches within a 20 minute drive, all with waterside restaurants and cafés.

This traditional and spacious house is located just a couple of minutes from the centre of one of the Languedoc’s most beautiful villages, Poilhes, and the Canal du Midi which runs through the village.

Poilhes has a couple of shops and restaurants (don’t miss Les Platanes which was featured on Rick Stein’s BBC2 series) and there is a much larger selection in the neighbouring village of Capestang, and the city of Béziers is only 10 minutes away.

There is a new wine bar opened in Poilhes which is causing a lot of interest locally - its called Vinauberge and you can see details on www.vinauberge.com. There is a Tapas Bar and wine tastings, a great place for a lazy afternoon by the banks of the Canal du Midi!

If you are feeling energetic, there is a free municipal tennis court just a couple of minutes walk away from the house.

This is the ideal location to provide a relaxing holiday base, whilst being within easy reach of local attractions and activities. The Mediterranean coast is 15/20 minutes drive, Montpellier, the thriving capital of the Languedoc with its international airport is 45 minutes away by car.

One of the most diverse regions of France, the Languedoc offers mountains, lakes, rivers and beautiful stretches of coastline; major towns and fairytale citadels. Languedoc is one of the most prolific wine-producing areas of France and a happy afternoon can be spent touring the many vineyards and tasting the local produce.

Budget airlines fly regularly to Montpellier, Perpignan, Nimes, Carcassonne and Girona. Spain, Andorra and the Pyrenees are within easy reach. By rail, the TGV operates from Lille to Béziers or Agde. Eurostar has a non-stop service from Waterloo to Avignon (July to September).

" We had a wonderful holiday. We were very pleased with the converted garage which doubled as an office and well used by various members of the family who needed access to the Wi-Fi. That was an essential consideration in choosing the house. We were exceptionally fortunate with the weather! Andrew and Val - April 2014 "
