Location

Saint-Geniès-de-Fontedit lies 50 minutes either side of Montpellier and Carcassonne and 30 minutes to the Mediterranean beaches. The property is located just on the edge of the village.

The beautiful Languedoc Regional Park is just 15 minutes to the North.

Saint-Geniès (population 1083) is a charming, traditional wine-producing village in the heart of the Languedoc vineyards. Life here revolves around local wine production and the village has several of its own 'caves'. Amenities include café bar, newsagent, grocery store and post office.

Pizzeria, two excellent restaurants, further café bars, supermarket and bank in nearby Magalas (3 km). Famous restaurant and Château de Grézan only 3 km also.

For the children and sun-worshippers, the amazing sandy beaches of the Mediterranean lie just 18 miles to the South. All water sports are catered for as well as having a large range of excellent cafés and seafood restaurants.

The town of Béziers (10 miles) offers something for everyone. A huge tree lined boulevard hosts endless cafés and outdoor restaurants as well as an enormous flower market on Fridays. There are many cultural events throughout the summer, including the spectacular 'Féria' when the whole town is taken over for four days by street markets, musicians and traditional concerts. This is not to be missed.

For the adventurous, there are two golf courses within 20 minutes of the villa and wonderful opportunities for canoeing and kayaking and river and lake swimming and hiking right on the doorstep.

The delightful, waterside village of Agde (30 minutes) will charm you with its beautiful old painted village houses, winding streets with fascinating shops, superb restaurants and traditional markets. Possibly the best place to buy fresh fish in the Languedoc. Early-risers can buy straight from the returning fishing boats in the morning.

For those interested in discovering more about the most famous aperitif in the South of France, there are guided tours around the Paul Ricard (pastis) caves in Bessan. Or on a similar theme, visit the caves and museum of Noilly Prat in the spectacular harbour side village of Marseillan (35 minutes).

Further afield, the kids will love the huge water park 'Aqualand' in the chic resort of Cap d'Agde. There's more golf here or a choice of 9 different beaches. Great shopping too.

The Pont du Gard and all the beauties of Provence and the Camargue Regional Park are only a couple of hours away.

In the other direction, the Spanish border and Barcelona are within easy reach.

Reviews

« We had a wonderful family holiday in your beautiful villa. It was lovely and clean when we arrived and there is a real attention to detail. The rooms are light and spacious and the pool area is wonderful. We have been on a number of villa holidays over the last few years and your property was by far and away the best. The village setting was also wonderful. »  Scanlan family (Lancashire, UK)

« Having spent a glorious week in your property. I write to thank you for making the whole process a simple and straightforward experience, your professionalism shines through. We would very much like you to pass on our thanks to the owners of the property, it was beautifully presented and maintained and was an absolute pleasure to stay in, one of the best we have had the good fortune to find, without doubt. Clearly that would not have been possible without your good marketing, you will certainly be our first port of call next year. »  T. Galloway - Hampshire
