About Claire and Marc Israel
Since 2009, Domaine du Ministre belongs to Claire, Marc and their three boys Thibault, Quentin, and Paul. They are working hard to improve it and develop it so that you can have enjoyable moments.
Claire and Marc Israel purchased this House in 2009
Why Claire and Marc Israel chose Murviel-lès-Béziers
The domain became our family house, where we reunite with family and friends in a convivial atmosphere.
What makes this House unique
The house is located in a 5,000-m² garden with views of the vineyards, the surrounding forests and, in the distance, Murviel-lès-Béziers. The only noises come from nature. The 6 bedrooms, offering sleeping arrangement for 12 people with all modern comfort, allow for enjoying with family or friends. The barbecue is at your disposal for delicious meals, as well as a fireplace for when the weather gets cooler! The large swimming pool and its deck invite you for resting in the shade or under the sun, and for enjoying the cicadas’ shrilling. The sea is 20 minutes away; the Haut-Languedoc natural park is at your door and shopping facilities, markets and, supermarkets are a few kilometres away. Domaine du Ministre is an ideal location for anyone who wants to rest, all while enjoying the region.

A stunning old house in an amazing setting next to the vineyard with a beautiful view of Murviel
We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay during our holiday with plenty of space for three families to enjoy the house and the pool. This was a great base to explore the region whether kayaking on the river Orb, enjoying the beach at Serignan Plage, or spending time in Beziers or Montpellier. The local market at St Chinian on Sunday was worth the visit (we went twice) and the local wines delightful.
The property is well equipped and maintained and would be a fantastic holiday home for anyone wishing to explore the region.
Thanks to Marie-Ange and to Clare and Marc for their hospitality.
Thank you so much Jonathan for your appreciation. It's much appreciated. We are happy you loved our house and we look forward to welcoming you again.

Lovely Family Home with Beautiful Views
We went with our families - one son, 2 daughters, 1 grandson (1 & half year old) & 2 granddaughters (3 & half, and 1). It was nice to see the house in the old style, & found the two bathrooms lovely. We were fortunate with the weather as it was hot daily so we sat outside. We found difficult to handle the fixed parasol (the winding arm was hard to wind). We felt that there should have another fixed base and parasol on the terrace or a very heavy base for the parasol to go in. The owners were very good at responding and did solve many of our queries. The swimming pool was fantastic, but it needs stairs or steps as our grandkids had to be in our arms as they couldn’t reach the floor apart from the 3 year old girl. But still we had to carry & put her in the pool. Therefore, I got the kids a paddling pool which had been successful. We, the elderly couple, did struggle to get out of the pool, but that is not the big issue! Everyday the grandkids had great fun in the pool in a paddling boat or aids to float them. BBQ was good but no rotisserie as it was being repaired! Most of the time we were at the Ministre as we LOVED being there, and did go to Mini Animal Farm which was just okay! Oh yes, there is another thing...it would be helpful if you say where we can put the empty bottles & cans as we couldn’t find in Murviel, but we eventuallly found them ...so please write down in the Le Ministre’s folder - at the bottom of the long drive, turn right & go through Les Roucans & over the one-lane bridge, the bottle banks are on the left side about half a kilometre from the bridge. However we couldn’t find anywhere to put empty cans or plastic containers (we eventually found one when we went for a drive many miles away). In spite of little problems, it had been FANTASTIC holiday, thank you very much.
Thank you very much for your appreciation and comments. We will definitely take actions to make our guest even more comfortable.

Goede prijs buiten hoogseizoen maar heeft verbetering nodig
Positief: mooie, ruime woning, rustig gelegen en compleet ingerichte keuken.
Negatief: geen ontvangst (sleutel in BBQ), de hele week niemand gezien. Geen instructie over het huis aanwezig (o.a. alarm in het zwembad), Gemiddelde tot slechte staat van onderhoud en netheid, met name het zwembad.
Wir waren das erste Mal Mitte Juni mit der ganzen Familie im Urlaub (Großeltern, Schwiegermutter, Familie mit 2 Kindern und Mutter mit Kind). Wir hatten alle Platz. Die Zimmer waren sehr groß und genauso wie beschrieben! Das Haus ist sehr kühl, perfekt für die heißen Tage! Wir haben geschlafen wie Babys! Es ist wirklich ein wunderschönes Haus! Sehr schön eingerichtet mit allem was man braucht! Es hat wirklich an nichts gefehlt! Die Natur ist einzigartig. Das Haus ist in einer sehr ruhigen Gegend. Die Nachbarn sind sehr nett! Man ist aber trotzdem sehr ungestört in dem Haus!
Die Kommunikation mit den Vermietern war einwandfrei, unkompliziert und schnell! Vielen Dank nochmal!
Die Strände sind etwa eine halbe Stunde weit weg. Wir haben jedesmal einen anderen Strand ausprobiert. Sie waren alle schön. Die Kinder waren begeistert!
Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Urlaub! Wir kommen gerne wieder!
Danke Joanna für diese freundlichen Worte, die uns sehr berühren. Wir werden Sie gerne wieder begrüßen.
Très agréable propriété au calme
Nous recommandons vivement ce petit coin très agréable à côté de Saint Chinian. La propriété est décorée simplement avec goût ; la piscine, la vue, le calme : un vrai régal !
The domain is 15 minutes away from the Haut-Languedoc Natural Park; this place is full of typical small villages and it is a departure point of a myriad of walks, 20 minutes away from the beaches. A region worth discovering under the Mediterranean sun!
