About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a large terrace in a village house overlooking the square

Enjoy the comfort and charm of this 17th century house on the square of a little mediaeval village tucked away on a hillside, with glorious vistas of vineyards all around and the natural beauty of the hillside behind.

On the ground floor when you enter, you find a spacious open plan living dining area with the kitchen well designed for sharing cooking. There is a dishwasher and a microwave.

Lovely old spiral stairs lead from the ground floor to the four comfortable bedrooms on three floors. Two have single beds, two have double beds, There are two bathrooms, one of which has a bathtub.

The village shop, with the best baguettes around and good meat, is next door. Go to nearby markets for fresh local produce , prepare it in the well-equipped kitchen and enjoy your delicious lunch or dinner on the terrace. The terrace is perfect for sun bathing, or just relaxing with a glass of wine and a book. Away from the house, there is something for everyone. Explore the markets of Clermont l'Herault (10mins away) and beautiful historic Pezenas (15mins away), the ancient town of Agde, the mediaeval St Guilhem le Desert. The beaches of the Mediterranean are within easy reach, the lac du Salagou has sailing and windsurfing and the Herault river is great for canoeing. There are tennis courts in the village, golf courses nearby and excellent walking tracks behind the house.

About Vicki Douglas

I am Australian, living in Sydney, but with family scattered all over the world. We all love to get together as often as possible in Peret, to enjoy the peace and beauty of the area.

Vicki Douglas purchased this house in 2004

Why Vicki Douglas chose Clermont-l'Herault area

The location is perfect for the whole family, as it has something for everyone. It's right in the village, with the shop next door, so extremely convenient. The house is big enough for all of us, and we've made the kitchen simple but big enough and well equipped enough for us all to cook together. The area has wonderful walks, and plenty of history for the history buffs, (it's in Cathar country), there's excellent shopping, there are the beaches and the rivers for swimming and canoeing. And it's a great place to relax.

What makes this house unique

The most charming thing about the house is that it has a lovely big terrace for meals - great for breakfast and BBQ's, or just for sunbaking. And we love the ancient spiral staircase winding up through the house.

Gorgeous house,with a real cooks kitchen which looked small but it was really practical and well equipped.Comfortable living spaces,and bedrooms,beautifully simply decorated,washing machine,and lovely bathrooms..Much more spacious than it looks on the photos. Peaceful beautiful location ( apart from the bells! ).Easy access to Montpellier,a fantastic gorge,and some lovely villages and beaches.The terrace was a lovely place to watch the world go by.A beautiful quirky french property that feels like a home rather than a holiday let.Very well thought out,and well equipped.We had 2 families with us,4 adults and 4 children and we had loads of space.I didnt want to return home.A wonderful place to holiday .Thank you.

A Peaceful Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful location, right on the village square. Met and welcomed into clean and tidy surroundings by the local contact J-R. A most obliging man. The younger members of the party were enthralled by his slightly mysterious ways. Woke each morning to the smell of bread being baked, the bakery/general store is right next door. Took each meal on the spacious and well appointed terrace, a sun trap for most of the day.

In the local area, the market at Clermont l'Herault is well worth a visit as are the nearby cirques for those who like walking. Slightly further afield the Gorges d'Heric, is a stunning place to visit, mountain stream dropping into deep pools ideal for swimming and less crowded than heading for the coast.

Highly recommended!!

Thank You Vicki.
