Holiday home in Pézenas

We found our holiday dream in Pézenas

When we found Pézenas all our dreams of living in the South of France came together. Unusually it had everything we wanted beauty, history, culture, lots of different places to eat and a really thriving vibe!

A stunning medieval town surrounded by rolling hills and vineyards

Pézenas is a delightful find between Montpellier and Béziers in the south of France, it's a stunning medieval town surrounded by rolling hills and vineyards. It's vibrant and upbeat with lovely streets packed with great restaurants and lovely little shops. Pézenas is famous for it's artisans, antiques shops and fantastic market on Saturdays, which is full of local food to try and has a large organic section which we particularly love.

Idyllic port of Mèze famous for its fish and seafood...

Within a 20 minute drive you can be at the idyllic port of Mèze famous for its fish and seafood and could be watching the boats and windsurfers and indulging in something amazing! Glorious beaches are only half an hour away and the house is only 25 minutes from Béziers airport and 50 minutes from sophisticated Montpellier and it's airport.

Canoeing down the Hérault, swimming in a local lake or river, hiking in the hills...

The area is literally packed with things to do such as canoeing down the Hérault, swimming in a local lake or river, hiking in the hills, wine tasting at local vineyards or visiting hot springs or beautiful monasteries and villages.

A thriving festival of local food and drink accompanied by live music...

In July and August there is a celebration called Estivale every Friday night, when the main street becomes a thriving festival of local food and drink accompanied by live music.

10 minute walk from the centre of this gorgeous old town so you can enjoy everything this amazing place has on offer...

Villa Henri is only a 10 minute walk from the centre of this gorgeous old town so you can enjoy everything this amazing place has on offer, indulge in the lovely food and wine, without needing to get into your car.

The pool is a lovely way to cool off after a day's sightseeing...

Villa Henri is a pretty, traditional design sleeping six with three shower rooms including one en-suite on the ground floor. It has one twin and two doubles. There's plenty of space to relax on the terraces or inside of course and three different places to eat. The house has terraces on two sides of so you can always find some shade if you want it and the pool is a lovely way to cool off after a day's sightseeing. The ping pong table is very popular too!

Our guests last year said 'We have been to many houses in the south of France and this is the nicest!' We live here part of the year so unlike many gîtes this is a home and much loved. We will be travelling while guests are in Pézenas this year but we have a lovely local bilingual friend on hand to help should guests need it.
