Details for holiday cottage Les Pins, sleeps 2 plus baby, 1 Bedroom, Sleeps 3, 1 Bathroom, 1 Separate WC

"Les Pins" (The Pines) is a charming stone cottage which was once the "masion de gardien" on the estate. Since we converted it to a holiday cottage in 2002, it has been a popular and romantic destination for couples exploring this beautiful part of France.

Its large, open-plan lounge-dining room is bright and airy thanks to two sets of double French doors leading to the pool and garden on one side and to a private patio terrace with barbecue on the other. A small but well equipped kitchen caters for even the mosy ambitious cook.

The double bedroom, with its modern, en-suite shower room and wc, has glazed double doors leading to the pool and garden. A second separate wc and basin lead off the passage.

The large 11X4m pool is shared with a maximum of 4 other guests in the adjoining cottage only.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A wonderful woodland hideaway...batteries recharged...Thank you! Clive and Sue Aug 2014



A fantastic tranquil hideaway set within easy reach of many of the attractions the region has to offer. The open plan living area on the first floor remains cool on hot days and leads on to the large treetop balcony where you can enjoy dinner after a day spent lazing by the pool or exploring the region... we can give no higher recommendation than to say that we have already booked again for next year! Katharine,June2011/2012/2013/214( and booked for 2015!)



We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful holiday home It was tastefully furnished and had everything that we needed. We particularly appreciated Joan's and Brian's hospitality- they were available to help when we needed them. Helen,Aug 2010

On the satellite view you will see the two properties of "Domaine des Rochers." "La Primelle" with Pins and Chenes is the property on the right. "Les Rochers" is our house to the left, The surrounding gardens and national forest beyond, are yours to enjoy, with their wealth of wild flowers, animal and bird-life, and magnificent views.

The nearby fortified village of Soubes has a wonderful bar/restaurant in the village square.A little further is the historic town of Lodève with its many restaurants, bustling market, Gothic cathedral and fine museum and art gallery. Other nearby towns well worth visiting include Montpellier, Pézenas, Nimes (and the Pont du Gard), the port of Sète, and the fortified town of Carcassonne. Smaller villages such as Saint Guilhelm le Désert and the Knights Templar village of La Couvertoirade offer a unique perspective of France’s history.

A thirty minute drive to the north leads to Millau with its astounding modern viaduct and the ‘Gorges du Tarn’ beyond. Plenty of opportunity for water sports such as canoeing on the Hérault gorge and River Orb, and sailing, swimming or windsurfing on the nearby Lac du Salagou. Enjoy seafood at Mèze or Bouzigues overlooking the famous oyster beds, before taking a dip in the Mediterranean.

Head a little further east and visit the walled town of Aigues Mortes from where you can take a boat around the canals of ‘la petite Camargue’. Visit the famous caves of Clamouse, Aven Armand, and Grotte des Demoiselles. If you enjoy wine we can direct you to some of the many nearby domaines where your hosts will be delighted to explain their work and invite you to taste their wines.

Coast/Beach:

The beaches of the Mediterranean are within a 50 minute drive (Cap d'Agde, Sète, Valras, Palavas, Frontignan), as are the fishing ports of Bouzigues, Mèze and Marseillan on the Etang de Thau with their wonderful sea food restaurants, and shallow safe bathing beaches.

Finally, when exhausted by the myriad of activities offered within this wonderful region, why not just stay ‘at home’ and relax in this haven of peace, or go walking in the surrounding mountains.

Montpellier and Béziers airports (Ryanair and Easy jet)) are 50 minutes away. Nimes, Carcassonne and Rodez are also handy. We are situated about a 9 hour drive from the channel ports. A car is essential. Montpellier with its TGV station is 50 minutes away.
