About Nigel Bentley

Professional couple based in London, UK. Love travelling and discovering new places around the world.

Nigel Bentley purchased this house in 2011

Why Nigel Bentley chose Pézenas

Available to rent throughout the year, our centrally located townhouse is ideally positioned to enjoy this charming, vibrant and historical town as well as the nearby beaches and countryside. Stylish decor, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large roof terrace located in a central yet quiet street just a few steps away from the centre of the beautiful old town.

Our Pezenas house is conveniently located just 15 minutes from Beziers airport (served by Ryaniair from Luton) or 40 minutes from Montpellier for air and rail/TGV links across France & Europe. Carcasonne and Nimes airports are also within an hour's drive.

Located in the heart of the Languedoc region, Pézenas is an ideal starting point to discover this beautiful part of France. The area is known for its many vineyards and countryside offering hills, lakes and rivers, whilst the Mediterranean coast with long, sandy beaches and harbour towns is only 15 minutes by car. You can easily visit the Camargue National Park with its flamingos and wild horses, the walled city of Carcasonne , the fishing port of Sète or the bustling city of Montpellier.

The town centre of Pézenas is a labyrinth of cobbled streets lined with historic buildings housing artist studios, brocantes, cafes, bars and restaurants. During the summer months Pézenas is a hive of activity with different festivals, markets and exhibitions, many opening until midnight on Wednesdays and Fridays . On Saturday the huge all day market offers a wonderful selection of locally produced food, flowers and wine.

What makes this house unique

The house is a beautiful 18th century townhouse right in the centre of the beautiful town of Pezenas. We adore France and visit as often as we can and wanted a house that was centrally located so we could enjoy all the excellent facilities that Pezenas has to offer. We're a few moments walk from the many restaurants and cafes, galleries and shopping that the town has to offer. The medieval old town really is very beautiful and we feel very lucky to have a house here! The house has been completely renovated to offer all modern comforts but with a classic french feel. The piece de resistance is the large roof terrace with sofa, armchairs , dining table , BBQ, sink and fridge amongst mediterranean planting. Its the perfect place to relax to enjoy alfresco meals looking over the rooftops and the sample the wine from the many excellent vineyards in the area. To have any outside space in a character property in the centre of Pezenas is very rare!

Perfect central location, lovely house in beautiful town.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week in this house. It is full of character, well-equipped and very centrally located in Pézenas, which is possibly the most perfect French town we have ever visited. We easily found fantastic places to eat every night, and every convenience is very close at hand. Despite being in the town centre, the house is very peaceful, and the sun trap roof terrace made a great place to have breakfast, or enjoy a drink as the sun went down after a day of exploring the amazingly varied landscapes and towns that are within very easy reach. Communication with the owners was excellent. For anybody who can navigate stairs (there are 3 flights in the house) we cannot recommend this place highly enough. Very many thanks.

Lovely townhouse, wonderful town!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely townhouse within a few steps of the centre of Pezenas but tucked in a quiet street. We thought it was beautifully furnished to a high standard and had lovely little touches to make this a home from home experience. The house was spotless when we arrived and a nice touch was the welcoming bottle of wine and coffee and packet of French biscuits. Lovely roof terrace had a BBQ, table, chairs, sofa and sun loungers plus fridge, sink and crockery cupboard. We had some very relaxing days spent on this beautiful terrace looking over the rooftops of old Pezenas. Had great advice and recommendations by the owner before our stay and good communication with the local property manager Stephanie. Pezenas is a beautiful town with lots going on. There was a great atmosphere at the Friday night festival that happens in the town each week during the summer months. Great Saturday market that takes up the whole main street is close to the house too. Also found a really great beach club 20 minutes away that we loved with sun loungers and friendly helpful staff. Can't really fault our experience. We had a really relaxing holiday with great weather and are seriously considering going back again next year!

Wunderschönes Haus mitten in Pezenas

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben dieses schön eingerichtete Haus sehr genossen! Mitten in der Stadt und nahe beim kostenlosen Parkplatz, liegt es super zentral . Es ist sauber, auch die Küche. Voll ausgestattet mit allem was man zum Wohlfühlen so braucht. Am liebsten haben wir unser Frühstück auf der hübschen Dachterrasse genossen. Die Schlafzimmer haben gute Betten, die Badezimmer sind sauber . Im gemütlichen Wohnzimmer liegen umfangreiche Informationen über die Gegend, Restaurant Empfehlungen etc. Der Kontakt zum Vermieter war super schnell und sehr freundlich ! Wir werden wiederkommen!
