Overview

About the property

Cottage in Roquebrun, Nr. Beziers, Herault, Languedoc-Roussillon, France - Peaceful Location Within 5 Mins Walk To The River Beach And Main Village

Originally an old stone stable, this unique property was professionally restored and extended ten years ago and now offers extremely comfortable accommodation for four persons in a blissfully calm location - yet only five minutes walk from the village amenities. There is a lovely garden, packed with indigenous plants with a choice of two terraces to relax on and which backs on to the wild garrigue, making it a great spot for bird-watchers. The ground floor which is tiled in handmade terracotta throughout, consists of a living room with comfortable seating for four, a fine wood-burning stove, large coffee table and television (English channels available), a fully-fitted kitchen with walk-in larder and dining area for four. On the first floor, there are two comfortable double bedrooms: one en suite with a large shower, a further bathroom and an oak-floored landing with an airing cupboard housing a washing machine and leading to the garden. The property sits on an area of patrimonial interest and the restoration was carried out in a traditional manner which reflects this. Windows, doors and shutters are painted a subtle blue-grey, and the main structural beams are exposed. There is full double glazing and central heating. Parking is simply not a problem where we are, right outside the house - a major factor for a relaxed vacation. Roquebrun is set along the river with water activities and a pebble beach. We are within driving distance of many local attractions, and beautiful surrounding villages, ideal for cycling, walking, kayaking, biking, fishing, swimming, local history including muséums and castles.

About Susannah Cartwright

Bob and Barabara Ross renovated and own this beautiful property but I act as their point of contact as they are not here all the time and are busy doing all sorts of exciting things! So I am on hand to help you with anything you need during your stay. I have a small house in the next Hamlet and also work as a massage therapist and trainer here. I have been here for 7 years and love this area with the river, the nature, the people are friendly and welcoming.I love going walking although in summer it can be a bit too hot unless you go very early. I hope you will love it as much as we do!

Susannah Cartwright purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Susannah Cartwright chose Beziers area

The terraces overlook the mountain and gardens below.

It is ideal for a couple or 2 couples holidaying together. Close to the village but far enough away for peace and quiet.

What makes this cottage unique

Peace and calm especially when the village is busy in the height of summer. Parking is a great asset in the village when it is more crowded. We can park right outside the door. We can walk directly from the house into the coutryside. The two terraces and garden offer shade or sun at different times of the day, ideal for eating out and the views are calming and very pretty.

The house was renovated for us to live in so has all the comforts of a home not just a Holiday rental. the woodburner for winter and heating, the rooms set out for guests to come and enjoy with us whilst also enjoying some privacy.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a week in this lovely cottage in early August 2015. The cottage is charming and so well equipped. It is located in a very quiet area of the village. The village itself is fantastic with shops restaurant's and a beautiful river which everyone swims in. The cottage is perfect for families or couples. Ideal if you want to relax or be more active with hiking and great cycling on your doorstep. Perfect.
