Overview

Nezignan-l'Eveque House Rental Photos and Description

This fully restored village house, dating from the early part of the 16th Century faces South down the gentle incline of Rue de l'Hôpital, in the oldest and most picturesque part of the village of Nézignan l'Evêque . ' L'Hôpital' refers to the medieval hospice, kept on this site by a monastic order, which offered shelter to travellers, some on the pilgrim way to Santiago de Compostela. The architectural richness of the village testifies, not only to a distinguished past as summer residence of the Bishops of Agde, but also to intriguing links with such mysterious organisations as the Knights Templar. In keeping with this historical tradition, the façade of the house offered for rental is constructed in the honey-coloured stone of the region, and enhanced by mouldings and mullion windows, returned to their former beauty by a local stonemason. To the right of the front door are a stone seat, an old village pump, and a small olive tree, which gives the house its name.

The front door gives access to a large open-plan ground floor, tiled in handmade terracotta, and completely vaulted with the magnificent original medieval stone arching. To the front there is a fully equipped kitchen with ample storage space and an integrated washing machine, fridge freezer, stove with gas and electric rings, a separate oven and microwave. A round kitchen table offers comfortable seating for up to six people. A separate utility area conceals the central heating boiler (the heating is a great advantage for a stay in winter!), fuse-box and waste bins. The central vaulted area is dominated by an open staircase, rising from a stone plinth to the floor above, and to the rear of the ground floor is another vaulted space, with a seating area and concealed lighting, guaranteed to be one of the coolest spots in Nézignan on long, hot summer days.

On the first storey the handmade floor tiles are smaller, giving, along with the exposed wooden beams and stone niches, an altogether more intimate atm

Wonderful Old Wine Village - Don't Miss It

  • 5 of 5

Loved this village! We stayed two weeks and wished that it was longer. My husband spent days taking photos of the town while I had opportunity to work on my French. The village has a small market, bakery and pizza shop, all of which we frequented and enjoyed. We also purchased a jug of wine from the local vineyard, which was not only good, but a bargain at 1.50 euros per liter. Although the owners recommended having a vehicle, we chose to use public transportation, and got by just fine. We took local buses, which ran on schedule. The buses take you to the local villages. A bus ride to Agde drops you at the train station where we took trains to Barcelona, Paris and Montpellier. The house was one of the most unique homes we have ever rented. We especially liked the historic feeling of the centuries old home. The hosts were extremely helpful about local places to visit and knowledgeable about the regions history. We highly recommend this vacation rental.

Wunderschön

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist traumhaft schön! Wir haben hier zwei Wochen verbracht und uns nicht zuletzt durch unsere authentische und typisch südfranzösische Unterkunft, super wohl gefühlt. Das Haus ist mit Allem ausgestattet, was man braucht und wurde uns sehr sauber übergeben. Das Vermieterpaar hat uns von Beginn an sehr nett aufgenommen. Dafür möchten wir uns noch einmal bei ihnen bedanken! Wir denken gerne an diesen Urlaub zurück und wünschen ihnen alles Gute.
