LES VIGNES ANCIENNES is a modern, spacious villa with 3 air conditioned bedrooms, one with its own private roof terrace and views. We have a shaded patio for alfresco dining and small flower garden beyond the 8m x 4m private, low chlorine, salt water pool. The comfortable living room has a high ceiling, large open fireplace and a balcony feature. There is a 55 inch smart TV, which can receive UK satellite and French channels, and a blu-ray player. Many DVDs and books are available for guests' use. Free Wi-Fi is available and our English speaking house manager is on hand for any questions during your stay.
The villa is in an elevated position in a quiet road, looking towards open country; a large local supermarket is within 3 minutes walk. For ball games, tennis and other leisure pursuits, a local park is also just 3 minutes walk away. We are within an easy 15 minute walk of Pézenas's historic town centre, which has a good selection of shops and restaurants and an interesting historic buildings trail. A selection of spacious, sandy Mediterranean beaches are only a short distance away (eg Vias Plage 18km, Marseillan Plage 24km, Cap d'Agde, 25km).
Béziers airport, with flights from Luton, Stansted, Bristol, Edinburgh and Manchester, is just 20 minutes drive away. Béziers Airport is also accessible by public transport.
The villa has quick access to the A9 and A75 autoroutes, providing fast links to the many attractions abounding in the Languedoc-Roussillon (Occitanie) and Cévennes areas. Indeed the villa is very easy to find, being about 1km from the A75 autoroute (toll-free from Clermont-Ferrand, except for the spectacular Millau Viaduct).
With its excellent location, this spacious, architect designed villa will appeal to those seeking to explore the historic town of Pézenas and the enormous range of attractions to be found in the Languedoc area.
Pézenas is described in the Rough Guide as one of the most singularly beautiful towns in the French Southwest. It has a huge Saturday market and there are numerous events staged in the town during an extended season. While the old town, with a good selection of shops and restaurants and its historic buildings trail, is about 1km away, there is a good restaurant within 7 minutes walk. A little further afield are the city of Montpellier and the ancient fortress of Carcassonne, to mention just a couple of interesting places to visit.
Winter lets are available: December, January, February. In winter (except 15 December to 5 January) the second week is half price, or we offer 3 weeks for the price of two. We have full central heating and a log fire available for guests' use. Sadly, for winter lets, we need to pass on to you the cost of the gas and electricity that you consume during your stay, but there is no charge for any logs that you use.
