About Liz and Edward

We are a professional couple who love Bouzigues and spend as much time as possible there in another village house that we bought in 2010.

Liz and Edward purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Liz and Edward chose Bouzigues

Our apartment at 33 grand'rue offers you easy living and all mod cons in a characterful old stone village house. Everything you may need for a great holiday is in the apartment or on your doorstep.

All our lettings are managed by Pascale and her team at Avocette Immobilier, based in the village. As well as meeting you on arrival and checking you out at departure, they will be available to assist you in the unlikely event of any problem.

Avocette will provide all the bedding and towels for your stay and can provide other services such as bed-making and cleaning, if required - please see additional information under rates.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is in a pretty part of the village close to all amenities.

It is an ideal base both for a relaxing holiday swimming, walking, sailing and sampling the local oysters and wines.

It is also well placed for exploring a little further afield to visit lovely towns and villages, local vineyards and markets and a number of fascinating historic sites. The next village has a large Roman villa. La Couvertoirade is a stunning old town founded by the Knights Templar in the12th century and fortified by the Knights of St John of Jerusalem in the early 15th.

Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert is one of the most beautiful villages in France on St James' Way to Santiago de Compostella in western Spain.

Villeneuvette, close to Clermont l'Hérault, is the charming 17th century commune of the Manufacture Royale, founded in the days of Louis XIV to make linen and cloth for the royal household and army. Production only ceased in 1955.

A trip to the wonderful walled city of Aigues Mortes, popular with film-makers) will take you straight back to medieval France.

There are frequent fairs and celebrations in Bouzigues and other local towns throughout the spring and summer and you will often find a communal barbeque and disco by the marina.

Everyone will greet you in the street and you will love the sense of community.

Central location but not suitable for young children (hence the star rating)

  • 3 of 5

We had a lovely stay in the village. The renovated property is very comfortable.

However, be warned that this property is not suitable for young children due to the steep stairs from the bedrooms. At the bottom of these stairs is a large window that drops straight into the street. (This needs to be kept closed whilst you are moving up and down the stairs as it would be very easy to fall out of the window). The marketing description of the property should include reference to this fact . A stair gate should be provided as a minimum as there is a real health and safety issue here. This was a worry for us during our stay as our son is only six years old. We only discovered this upon arrival at the property when we warned by the agent.

Apart from this everything in the property ensures a comfortable stay.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry to hear that our agent forgot to offer you the use of the steel stair gate that is kept in the main bedroom and takes only a few minutes to fit. We have taken steps to ensure this never happens again! The property has been inspected and rated as suitable for a couple of adults with one or two children, although the bunk beds in the second bedroom are fine for two adults. The availability of the stair gate and steepness of the stairs are now mentioned on the Owners Direct website. We are glad you liked the village and found the apartment very comfortable.

The local area boasts a wide range of places to visit.

Many of the nearby vineyards offer tours and wine tasting - don't miss the delicious local white Picpoul de Pinet, perfect with shellfish. Several wineries also have excellent restaurants. We are particularly fond of Domaine de Creyssels near Mèze and Bistrot d'Alex at Florensac.

There are delightful local markets most days. Pézenas, which is a lovely old town with well-signed walks through the historic centre, has a large market every Saturday. Mèze market is every Thursday and Sunday morning. Sète, which is one of France's major ports, is a very attractive town being criss-crossed by canals and boasting many fine buildings. Sète has markets on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

A little further afield there is much to see in Montpellier, Béziers and Narbonne.

If you enjoy historic sites, La Couvertoirade is a stunning old town founded by the Knights Templar in the12thC and fortified by the Knights of St John of Jerusalem in the early 15thC.

Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert is one of the most beautiful villages in France on St James' Way to Santiago de Compostella in western Spain.
