Overview

Autignac House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 6 - 3 bedrooms; 2 full bathrooms, pool, garden, all amenities

Aux Pieds des Vignes is located in a quiet street in the wine village of Autignac, 2 minutes walk from the local café and baker, which is next to the town's historic 17th century church. The house is in the village center which also has a bakery, bar/café and general store. Everything you need is in the village including post office, pharmacy, doctor, weekly visiting fish/shellfish vans from the coast, cheese and pizza vans, plus a produce market twice a week. A larger supermarket is just 6 minutes by car.

Our home is fully equipped with all kitchen and living amenities including stove, oven, refrigerator, microwave, washing machine, a new flat screen TV, DVD player, CD player and radio (iPod ready), barbecue, indoor and outdoor dining areas and pool. In one of the courtyard's is small completely renovated guest house/bedroom with 2 bunk beds and brand new bath facilities including shower, toilet and wash basin. Beds include 1 queen, two twins plus two bunks.

Wine and History: Aux Pieds des Vignes sits in the Faugeres wine region, one of the most up and coming Languedoc wine appellations and nearby also are St Chinian and Minervois wine regions. For restaurants there are many including three in nearby Magalas (6 minutes drive) One place close by and worth seeing a panoramic view of the Mediterranean coast from is the Moulins or Windmills in Faugeres and if you go early enough in the day with the sun rising in the east the views of the nearby Pyrenees mountain range are stunning. Also nearby of course are the lakes, rivers, gorges and climbing in the Languedoc National Park, the highest road bridge in the world at Millau and an just over an hour to Carcassone and its walled city or Aigues Mortes where the crusaders left from. The area is ideal for biking, walking, horse riding, fishing, and of course all those year round festivals and fetes that France is famous for are here in abundance.

Activities and Adventures: Locally the area has lots of attractions, not least the long sandy Mediterranean beaches just 25 minutes away. You can also swim in the river Orb or canoe and white water raft on it at Reals near Murviels, the international canoe centre, also popular for picnics while others enjoy the river. The village of Roquebrun is worth a visit, beautifully located further up river. There are also lots of festivals not least those in Beziers (Festa D’Oc and Feria in August, a very large 5 day street party based on Spanish culture), Pezenas the town of Moliere and with a great Saturday market, Bedarieux with its Monday market and of course a host of winemakers to visit and sample their wines.

Fun for the kids (and parents): Water Park located in Cap d'Agde called Aqualand. Copy and paste this link in your browser to see more. http://www.aqualand.fr/ and click on Cap d'Agde

About Maria & John

We bought this house from from Dominique and Jennifer Agnes. We live in the house outside the tourist season. During the summer we return to Ireland.

Maria & John purchased this house in 2013

Why Maria & John chose Autignac

Living in this house offers us an experience of authentic French village life. Situated among the vineyards and within easy reach of both the Mediterranean and the mountains of the Haut Languedooc, there is a wealth of activities for us to enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jennifer:

Just a quick note to say what a wonderful time I had staying in your lovely house in Autignac. It was everything that I had hoped for,and more and I, and the friends who joined me while I was there, had a fabulous time. You've appointed the house beautifully and it wants for nothing. The location of the house in the village is perfect...we loved walking up to the boulangerie or the Cafe du Commerce and also being close to the lovely lanes surrounding the village for longer strolls. The people in Autignac were super friendly and helpful; Charles is a treasure.. and of course the surrounding area was fabulous to explore.I just can't understand how you can bear not to be there all the time! :-)



AAutignac now has a very special place in my heart and I very much hope to make a return trip sometime in the not too distant future.



Thanks again...

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5
This is a comfortable, well equipped house in a quiet village location. The layout is ideal for a family, with plenty of room. We enjoyed eating and relaxing in the courtyard by the pool. The property's central location in the village made it easy to take walks through the vineyards and pick up our breakfast croissants from the local boulangerie! We would highly recommend this house to anyone who wants to make the most of the nearby beaches, historic towns and activities on the local rivers. It was always a pleasure to come back to the house at the end of the day - John & Maria have made every effort to ensure that their guests have a fantastic holiday. We look forward to returning.

Perfect family holiday house

  • 4 of 5
Hi Jennifer,

Our 2nd stay in your lovely house didn't disappoint. It was a joy to be back in your pretty villa - enjoying the pool and the lovely surroundings. Everything is so thoughtfully prepared for a family, and we once again enjoyed being in our favourite part of the world. Three weeks wasn't long enough!

"Allo! Allo!"

"Allo! Allo!"

We where so disappointed to have only had five days at this beautiful house.
The property was exceptionally clean and homely. The owners have made a fantastic effort to make the stay a real pleasure with lots of little thoughtful extras.
The locals were friendly and the village has all one needs, great little shop, cafe, patisserie and even (hopefully not needed) a pharmacy and Dr.
The pool is modest but all you need and the kitchen/living room-courtyard is lovely for the evening BBQs.
The annex is great for teenagers or just as a handy garden bathroom.
There is lots to do in the surrounding area from vineyards to canoeing on the stunning river nearby.
The images don't do this property justice, highly recommended!
We'll be back!

Stay went swimmingly!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time staying in your lovely house in Autignac. The area is stunning and we could not get over how fantastic the light is down there - so crisp and clear. We have a new family word- Orbing. We loved swimming in the river: a new experience for us!! We discovered the Gorges d'Heric were also good for swimming with fabulous rock pools and mountain scenery. The house was comfortable and well appointed - our teenage girls liked the 'annexe' - and the village was charming.

house is beyond any expectation!

  • 5 of 5
We spent two lovely weeks (summer 2014) in unique surroundings and the house is beyond any expectation. The village of Autignac is nice with warm and helpful people and the area is astoundingly beautiful.

The house is in a quite street just a few minutes from the "centre"of Autignac with a great Boulangerie open every day! The house is more beautiful than the website pictures. It is well equipped with all you need, We enjoyed the pool, the lovely eating areas and during our two weeks we had just one meal inside the house - the house had two nice dining areas outside which we used for all meals.

The owners were brilliant with communicating, thank you Maria and John!
