From the Owner

The medieval town of Montagnac is well-placed for sea, river, lakes and hills. We are in beautiful peaceful countryside but the big cities of Montpellier and Beziers are within easy reach. We are surrounded by pretty, old villages and towns each with its own personality and offering varied facilities and entertainment. We are just minutes from motorways, airports and railway stations but benefit from our own haven of peace and tranquility.

Special interest holidays:

We can tailor make a holiday to meet your specific requirements. Whether you want to go horse riding, enjoy the fantastic fishing, explore the area's rich history from the Greeks to the Romans, from the Saracens to the Cathars; or simply get to know the excellent value for money provided by the local cuisine we can help you. We have in the past also organised holidays for those with interests in cycling, antiques, sailing, astronomy, painting and bird watching. Or if you want to discover more about the excellent quality and value for money of our local wines we can use our local contacts to arrange for visits and tastings to a variety of producers. Finally, if you have already been captivated by the way of life in the area and wish to explore the possibility of buying a property here we can guide you with our local knowledge and contacts.


There is excellent bathing and beaches on the Mediterranean, the Etang de Thau, the River Hérault and the Lac du Salagou. The nearest beach is in Meze 12 kms from the property. A variety of beaches on the Med from the relatively secluded with few facilities to the more lively with restaurants and bars are within a short drive. Most beaches are of fine sand and shelve gently making them child-friendly. Boat hire, sea fishing, sub aqua and a variety of water sports can be arranged.


The property is easily accessible by road (A9 or A75), rail (Agde station at 20 minutes) or air. Ryanair, Easyjet, and/or Flybe fly into Béziers, Montpellier, Nimes, Carcassonne, Perpignan and Marseille from a variety of UK airports. Béziers is 20 mins, Montpellier 30 mins and the rest between 1 and 2 hours from the property. Car hire is available at all these airports. An interesting alternative is to fly to Girona just over the Spanish border where car hire is considerably cheaper.


Montagnac is 800 metres. Pézenas is 6 kms. Meze is 12 kms. Cap d'Agde is 25 kms. Béziers is 25 kms. Sete is 25 kms. Montpellier is 40 kms. Carcassonne is just over an hour. Aigues Mortes (boat trips in the Camargue) is an hour. The viaduct at Millau is an hour. The Spanish border is just over an hour. The Pont du Gard is an hour. Nimes is an hour. Roquefort is just over an hour. Arles and the Camargue are about an hour and a half.

Further Details:

10 minutes walk away is the medieval village of Montagnac which has lively bars and restaurants and can meet your everyday shopping needs with bakeries, a butcher, delicatessens, stalls for locally grown fruit and vegetables, a newsagents (English papers on the same day - if you're quick!), bank, post office and a shop for oysters, mussels etc. There is a small well stocked supermarket. On Fridays, there is a colourful market where you can buy local produce and specialities such as shellfish and charcuterie. And of course right on the doorstep there is an abundance of superb local wines to enjoy during your stay and to take home with you. 5 minutes across the River Hrault is the beautiful old town of Pézenas. Here you'll find a variety of restaurants to suit all tastes and budgetsas well as a whole host of craft shops in the old town (which stay open until midnight on Wednesdays and Fridays in the summer). Also in July and August is the famous Mirondela dels Arts cultural event with theatrical, dance and musical performances as well as street events. There are also 2 big supermarkets in Pézenas. In contrast, in the lively town of Cap d'Agde you will find all the activities from funfairs to casinos, from nightclubs to outdoor cinema that you would associate with a major seaside resort. Even more temptation awaits in the nearby cities of Béziers and Montpellier with their chic cosmopolitan shops and historic sites. Montpellier which frequently tops polls as the best city in which to live in France is well worth a visit. Its architecture ranges from Roman structures through to the ultra modern and it is a most pleasant place in which to spend a day or even longer.

From the Owner

Domaine de l'Hortevieille enjoys an elevated position with spectacular views in all directions. Our large secluded pool is fully secure and our tennis court overlooks the town of Montagnac (very distracting if you're trying to serve!). We supply you with a welcome pack of local goodies when you arrive and are on hand when you need us to enhance your holiday enjoyment.

  • Notes on accommodation: The property is eminently suitable for families with children being set 150 metres from the nearest road. There are acres of safe grounds. High chair and cot are available free of charge. Larger groups are welcome to reserve both houses for exclusive use of the property and all facilities. Both houses are centrally heated. Pets are welcome. Please note that the owners who live on site have 3 dogs, 4 cats 2 horses and half a dozen hens (all friendly - although the hens have their moments!!). Long term renters are welcome and special terms are available. Outside: One of the major pluses of this property are its outdoor facilities. Set in 10 acres of gardens, orchards (cherry, peach, apricot, pear, fig, apple, plum) and fields and completely surrounded by vineyards you really are in your own private world of beauty and tranquility. Each house has its own fully furnished patio to enjoy sumptuous lunches and dinners prepared on the barbecue and to relax with a book and a glass of wine under the parasol. Our secluded pool is shared by the 2 houses and measures 12 x 6 metres. It is fenced, surrounded by a pretty hedge and has a locked gate for security. In spring and autumn the pool is heated with a 'bache solaire'. Drinks and ice creams are available to be enjoyed in the cool shade of the poolside pergola. The tennis court is always available if you can tear yourself away from the stunning views! Within walking distance of the property is marvellous countryside for walking or cycling (we have mountain bikes for your use free of charge).
