A welcome pack makes sure you make the most of this beautiful region during your stay.

La Bergerie is a stroll from the village restaurant,commerces and medieval centre.

Whatever your holiday dreams, the location of La Bergerie can fulfill them.

Le Pouget is steeped in history. Its' medieval centre hosts an vibrant street festival of music, theatre, food and wine in mid-August. In the surrounding hills ancient ruins overlook the village and beside the children's farm there is an ancient Dolmen.

The dinosaur museum at Mèze hosts many remains of dinosaurs and eggs found in the region but if that's going back a bit too far in history for you why not head up the nearby A 75 to the templar village of La Couvertoirade.

Why not pass a Sunday morning at Mèze. ( 24km) Soak up the atmosphere of the lively market and then head back to a little port-side café and watch the world go by Then head off to nearby Bouzigues and take a guided tour of the oyster beds followed by a tasting.

Or why not hire a boat at Agde and head-off down the Canal du Midi for an afternoon. For children there's funparks and amusements of Cap d'Agde.

If this all a little too calm for you head off to the rapids in the gorges north of the historical and picturesque St Guilhem le Desert (16km).Or hire your watersports equipement at the Lac du Salagou ( 19km). Mountain bikes are also available to hire to explore the strange copper-coloured landscape that surrounds the lake.

The historical market towns of Clermont L'herault ( 7km) and Pezenas are close-by (18km) the pottery village of St Jean de Fos now boasts a great museum and hosts a great pottery market every August.

Late summer and early autumn the village is animated by the harvesting of the grapes.The heady odours waft over to the gîte and the village streets are stained red with the overspill of the convoy to the cave .Down at the cave you can witness the initial crushing of the grapes in enormous vats.The village is set in the midst of vineyards and the autumn foliage on the vines is a breathtaking mixture of red, yellow and orange.The village has many beautiful hilltop walks with panoramic views of the L'Hérault countryside.

On the first two sundays of March the village hosts a magnificent carnaval with enormous, colourful floats pulled by the winegrower's tractors.

Thanks to the village location of La Bergerie a taste of real french village life is on the doorstep. However due to its' calm setting in large gardens La Bergerie is also a haven of peace.

Upon arrival at La Bergerie the on-sight owners will provide you with a welcome pack to make sure that you make the most of this beatiful, varied region. You are assured of privacy in your independant gîte but can be reassured that they are happy to help you with any of your queries such as babysitting services, doctors,etc.

Bonnes vacances!

About Fintan and Patricia Lalor

We retired in France to be near our daughter and grand-daughter.

Michelle, our daughter , heard about this house on the 'grapevine'! It was hiding away in an abandoned overgrown garden.We've been very busy renovating it and putting in the pool. Never a dull moment!

We don't regret moving here for a minute.

We love welcoming our guests, going to Montpellier or the market in Mèze by the sea, on Sunday mornihgs. We often.pop over the border to Spain and we never get bored following our daughter's ineteresting musical career in the region. You can't beat sitting out on the terrace on a summer's evening listening to the crickets and unusual birdsong.. Life is good!

Fintan and Patricia Lalor purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Fintan and Patricia Lalor chose Plaissan

We chose Le Pouget , like our daughter, for it's great situation. It's in the centre of all the best that the region has to offer: coastlibe, mountains, gorges, lakes, city - everything is just a short hop away but meanwhile there are wonderful wlaks surrounding the village. The village has plenty of amenties, so if you want a lazy break you really don't have to move your car all holiday!

What makes this apartment unique

We fell in love with la Bergerie as soon as the owner swung the gates open and we looked up the long,treelined driveway. A secret garden in the centre of the village! It was love at first sight!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Together with our four children, aged 9-16, we spent three weeks as guests of pat and Fintan in the charming village of Le pouget.

The accomodation was excellant, the pool proved to be wonderful and Le pouget itself was an ideal location from which to explore the region.

Pat and Fintan were excellant hosts, warm and welcoming and available whenever needed for advice or directions in relation to sites, activities and shopping;

We would love to return and are recommending the venue to our family and friends.

Family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We all loved our holiday. The area was beautiful, the house perfect and Pat and Finton were really lovely kind hosts. We felt like a part of their family. We would really recommend this house to any family with a desire to relax and chill out in a liberal and informal atmosphere.

Nous sommes revenus dans ce gite pour la deuxième année consécutive et avons toujours autant apprécié la qualité de la prestation et la sympathie discrète des propriétaires.

La région est magnifique et Pat et Fint sauront vous accueillir dans un gite ou rien ne manque pour passer un excellent séjour.

Charming and cozy apartment in a delightful villag

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Pat and Fintan's gite in Le Pouget. Everything was in perfect order - neat and clean - and lots of information was available for all the things to do in the region, so all we had to do was pick and choose! The village is quiet and quaint, with shopping, and dining within walking distance. The hosts were very helpful and kind - available anytime we needed them. I would heartily recommend this vacation apartment - it was one of the best holidays we've ever had!

A wonderful place to be!

  • 5 of 5

A very nice house with everything you need for a perfect stay. Superb for 2-4 persons to relax and enjoy the holidays. Within 30 minutes by car you will be in the mountains with Lac du Salagou or St. Guilhem le Desert in the "Gorge de l'Herault" par example. In about 40 minutes you are on the beaches or the bigger towns (Sète, Meze, Montpellier, Beziers). The best of all are the very friendly and helpful owner Pat and Finton, who lives on the other side of the house. We and our 2 dogs enjoyed every moment to be in this Location in Le Pouget!!!

Beautiful and quiet holiday house

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the Bergerie last week and really did enjoy it.

The house is very well equipped, clean and comfortable, the kitchen has everything what is needed, the bathroom is nice and practical.

The house is ideally situated in the rural and quiet countryside but the coast, towns, mountains and lakes are at an hour distance. Within a day you can explore and visit the different parts of the Languedoc: sea, lakes, mountains, and do very pleasant walkings and visit the beautiful old towns and villages. Unfortunately, we could not enjoy the large, immaculate pool because of the weather.

Within walking distance you can find some small little shops and in the nearby towns of Clermont l'Herault you can find fresh fish, vegetables and everything you need for self-catering.

The owners are very nice, discreet and always helpful and we were really happy to have found this place to stay.

Le Pouget holiday

  • 5 of 5

Nice newly converted property with a very nice shower room and kitchen/diner. Well appointed clean pool to sunbathe round with plenty of loungers. Very friendly owners who visited us regulary to make sure everything was OK. Also had drinks with them and their family on the last day.

Le Pouget has more facilities than is immediately obvious and as this is our third visit to the area we are gradually finding them all. A nice area to get away from it all.

The gite is a 5 min stroll from the restaurant, bar, bakers, chemist and doctors and the spiralling medieval centre that hosts a festival in the summer. A mecca for walkers and birdwatchers, the village has a children's farm and a family- run riding school.

The market towns of Pezenas (18km) and Clermont l'Herault (7km) are nearby.

For watersports the Lac du Salagou (19km) or the gorges of St Guilhem Le Desert (16km) offer equipment and courses and the varied coastline is within easy reach : the fishing town of Mèze (24km) the bustling port of Sète (30km) or the tourist centre of Cap d'Agde (45km).

The cosmopolitan city, Montpellier (30km) has something to offer all ages.Why not park and take the tram in?

For music and art lovers,surrounding villages ( St Guilhem, St Jean de Fos, Pezenas) host events throughout the year.

Will you have enough time to fit it all in ?!
