Location

The property is located on the road into the beautiful, wine-producing village of Autignac with its vineyards and surrounding countryside.

Autignac (population 730) lies deep in the heart of the Languedoc vineyards; 12 miles North of Béziers and 30 minutes from Mediterranean beaches. Montpellier and Carcassonne airports less than 1 hour away.

Less than 5 minutes walk to bakery, café / bar / restaurant, pharmacy, general store and food shop, butcher, post office and numerous wine domains. Autignac is one of the seven villages that make up the famous 'Faugères' appellation and there are numerous opportunities to buy and taste the wine in the village.

Just outside the village lies the beautiful and imposing 'Château Grézan' - a superb Château hidden by vineyards and trees. It is owned by the Lanson Champagne family and here you'll find an outstanding restaurant and wine cave. Perfect for a special evening out. Lovely 20 minutes walk from the house.

Further amenities in the next village (Magalas 5 minutes drive). Large supermarket, 2 café / bars, three restaurants, pizzeria, bank with cash point, newsagent and local grocery store.

Mediterranean beaches lie just 30 minutes 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.

Superb access to the region via the following airports:
Béziers 30 minutes away.
Montpellier (only 45 minutes away) Carcassonne (60 minutes), Perpignan and Nîmes (80 minutes).
Toulouse 2½ hours Rodez 2½ hours Gerona (Spain) 2½ hours.

Reviews

« We have recently returned from our very enjoyable stay at Maison Lavande and wanted to thank you/the owners of the property for making everything so easy! We had a very relaxing stay which made coming home all the harder. »  N Allen

« Our second stay in Maison Lavande and this time the grand-parents came too. They loved just sitting by the pool, alternating between sun and shade. Kids made friends with local children in the park and we all got togther in the local restaurant for some memorable evenings. Would highly recommend the house and the village and the area. »  Andersons family

« Everything you need here. We've stayed at many French properties in the past and we would definitely consider this to be the best. Fabulous house and local bakery, grocery store and bar restaurant two minutes away. Local wine is way too good ! »  J and J

« Maison Lavande was a great find for us. First time staying south of the Dordogne and we loved being in true 'wine-country' with the beaches so close. House was equipped with everything and really felt like a family home. Can't face going home, definitely coming back next year. »  Given family

« Thanks for letting us share your lovely house. We loved the pool and being able to watch the kids from the terrace while we enjoyed an occasional glass of wine. The house has everything we needed and loved being so close to the shops in Autignac. We had to fight over who walked up to buy croissants every morning! Nearby beaches are amazing for the kids and the owners of the local café restaurant were extremely friendly. »  Butler family
