The pool and entertaining areas and two of the bedrooms share the glorious views across the valley to the mountains, with little villages dotted here and there in the distance. In the evening the floodlit spires of the Cathedral of Lodève, surrounded by the town lights, makes a spectacular vista.
The large sitting area is comfortably furnished with sofas and armchairs; the soaring ceiling has magnificent beams.
