About David and Holly Nielsen
We are enthusiastic traveller's who use our wonderful apartment as a base for seeing all of Europe. Everyday we spend in Pézenas teaches us new things about culture, food, wine. We call it 'l'Appartement des Artistes' because we both actively participante in the fine arts.
David and Holly Nielsen purchased this apartment in 2011
Why David and Holly Nielsen chose Pezenas
When we decided to search for a property in France, we came directly to the Languedoc. The vibe is more laid back then the French Riviera, and the cost of living is far more reasonable. We looked at over 29 properties, and had basically given up.
The day we first saw the apartment, the real estate agent was reluctant to show us this property because it was being completely renovated - it was a disaster!
We knew it was our place the second we saw the front door to the building. As soon as we entered we noticed the old tiles a l'ancienne, and it's incredible staircase. We wanted a property that immediately made one feel that, 'there's no doubt about it, we're in France,' and this one was paying off with every step - and we had not even visited the apartment yet!
Having done numerous home improvement DIY projects, we could see beyond the rubble, and saw this as the incredible property could be and now is.
Of all the apartments in our building, this one retained most of it's original character. 4 meter high ceilings, gigantic light filled windows, original plaster moulding, the marble fireplace and original hexagonal red tiles on the floor. How could we not fall in love with this property.
We know you will also!
What makes this apartment unique
We wanted a place that had all the charm of a European apartment with modern conveniences. After we bought the apartment, we went about completely replacing the kitchen and bathrooms with modern energy efficiency equipment - while always maintaining the original charm of this 250 year old building. The modern and the traditional work together in this apartment, not compete.
This apartment is also so well located, we walk everywhere when we are in town. It is in the middle of a thriving village, with everything mere steps away from the building: restaurants, the Old Town, and shopping either atthe local festivals or market. We are far away enough from the over crowded beach towns, but very close to the water. We are surrounded by history and culture, we only needs to ask, 'What am I curious about today?'
Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear David and Holly,
We just spent 2 weeks at your apartment, and we were very impressed how well equipped it was. The apartment is very well located with all shops one might need very close by. The building is old, but the inside of the apartment is certainly new. The kitchen has everything one can think of, the bathroom and shower are great. The beds are very comfortable and the apartment is very nicely furnished, incl. TV, radio. We bought croissents 25 meters away, a fruit and veg store in front and next to that Charcuterie and a small supermarket.
Pezenas, is a very old town that is well maintained and really lovely. Beautiful old buildings, good restaurants and high quality artisan shops; as opposed to run of the mill tourist shops in other towns. It really is special. We had easy visits to other places on roads, which all appeared to have been repaved recently. The countryside is lovely. The distance to the Mediterranean is only about 18-20 kms. During our stay, we visited many interesting places and towns known worldwide. We ate our noon meals at outdoor restaurants every day but one. In short we enjoyed ourselves immensely.
A great place.
