Property description

Meet the original property of "Les Appartements des Artistes" in Pezenas. Located in a nearly 300 year old historically protected building in the very centre of a vibrant, rich, village in the heart of Southern France. "L’Appartement Des Artistes #1" is a two bedroom apartment that sleeps four people in comfort and style. This is an ideal location for those who dream of not only visiting southern France..but experiencing it completely.

Please note: located across the hall in the same beautiful building, we also have a second property (Home Away Property # 4274763), "L'Appartement des Artistes No.2" could be used for those travelling with a large group, or two families, this apartment can be rented in conjunction with #979853. You can travel with friends and family, and be "together, but separate". If "No. 1" is unavailable, please check 'L'Appartement des Artistes No. 2". Both are of equal quality and price.
After a day of exploring the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France, it’s nice to know that there is a beautiful, comfortable apartment that awaits you. Sit in the Salon/Cuisine and enjoy local delicacies you’ve discovered over a bottle of local wine before dinner. The French have perfected the art of living well, and this apartment has been outfitted to help you achieve this with ease.
The cuisine is fully equipped with a fridge, freezer, oven, stove, microwave and dishwasher, Nespresso coffee maker, kettle, and toaster. There is even a clothes washing machine at your disposal in the apartment.
"L’Appartement Des Artistes" has two bedrooms. The Master bedroom has 4 metre high ceilings, large french windows, Juliet Balcony and a European Queen sized bed. The guest bedroom has two single beds, and features original beams in the ceiling. This apartment is perfect for two couples, or a a family of four. Each room is freshly made up for your arrival with linens and towels.
This property is completely prepared in advance with a complementary bottle of chilled Rosé awaiting to celebrate your arrival...all that is left to do is unpack your bags and begin enjoying your vacation time in France.
The Rough Guide to Languedoc - Roussillon calls Pézenas, “One of the most singularly beautiful towns in the French Southwest, endowed with an overwhelming concentration of grand architecture”. Thanks to Armand de Bourbon, Prince of Conti, Pézenas was considered the “second Versailles” in the late 17th century. This drew wealth, artists and playwrights of the caliber of Moliere all seeking to gain favour and patronage from the court.
Today, Pézenas has an incredibly well preserved Old Town filled with outdoor restaurants, artisans, and entertainment. Seasonal festivals, celebrations and a huge Saturday market take place year-round in Pézenas and it’s neighbouring villages. Located in the middle of the largest wine growing region in all of France, and less than a half hour drive from the Mediterranean beaches. Simple pleasures are abound.
With so many things to see and do in the Languedoc-Roussilon, Pézenas is ideally situated. The town of Pézenas itself is beautiful and vibrant. From buying bread and tasty treats at the local boulangerie, people watching at a one of the town’s outdoor cafés, or exploring one of the many antique shops (Brocantes), Pézenas has so much to offer. The Old Town is rich with history and fine architecture, and full of unique artisan shops and fine restaurants. What’s more, Pézenas has one of the best year-round Saturday Markets (Bio Marché) in the area. All of this and more is steps away from "L’Appartement des Artistes"
Some of the finest beaches in Southern France are a short drive away, but there is so much more to this area than sun and sand. Incredible sites like Le Pont de Gard, the medeval ramparts of Carcassone, or visiting cities like Montpellier, Narbonne, Beziers, Nimes and Arles. These all make wonderful day-trips from Pézenas. Truly, there are so many things to see and do. You will need more than a week just to scratch the surface of this enchanting region.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are enthusiastic traveller's who use our wonderful apartment as a base for seeing all of Europe. Everyday we spend in Pézenas teaches us new things about culture, food, wine. We call it 'l'Appartement des Artistes' because we both actively participante in the fine arts.

Why the Owner Chose Pézenas, France:
When we decided to search for a property in France, we came directly to the Languedoc. The vibe is more laid back then the French Riviera, and the cost of living is far more reasonable. We looked at over 29 properties, and had basically given up. The day we first saw the apartment, the real estate agent was reluctant to show us this property because it was being completely renovated - it was a disaster! We knew it was our place the second we saw the front door to the building. As soon as we entered we noticed the old tiles a l'ancienne, and it's incredible staircase. We wanted a property that immediately made one feel that, 'there's no doubt about it, we're in France,' and this one was paying off with every step - and we had not even visited the apartment yet! Having done numerous home improvement DIY projects, we could see beyond the rubble, and saw this as the incredible property could be and now is. Of all the apartments in our building, this one retained most of it's original character. 4 meter high ceilings, gigantic light filled windows, original plaster moulding, the marble fireplace and original hexagonal red tiles on the floor. How could we not fall in love with this property. We know you will also!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We wanted a place that had all the charm of a European apartment with modern conveniences. After we bought the apartment, we went about completely replacing the kitchen and bathrooms with modern energy efficiency equipment - while always maintaining the original charm of this 250 year old building. The modern and the traditional work together in this apartment, not compete. This apartment is also so well located, we walk everywhere when we are in town. It is in the middle of a thriving village, with everything mere steps away from the building: restaurants, the Old Town, and shopping either atthe local festivals or market. We are far away enough from the over crowded beach towns, but very close to the water. We are surrounded by history and culture, we only needs to ask, 'What am I curious about today?'
