|About 65km from Montpellier airport and less than an hour from the Mediterranean beaches (Serignan, Valras, Cap d'Agde, Marseillan, to name a few) our bed & breakfast is ideally placed for a great holiday in the sun! Situated on the outskirts of a picturesque village in the Haut Languedoc National Park, the visitor is in easy reach of the forests and mountains, gorges and caves, the unspoilt medieval villages of l'Herault.
The historic cities of Beziers, Montpellier, Carcassonne and Pezenas with their cosmpolitan cafes, restaurants and boutiques are all within an easy drive, as are the seafood restaurants in the many pretty villages along this stretch of coast. And if one is really adventurous there is a ferry from the port of Sete that will take you to the Balearics or Morocco.
