About Louise

Passionate about France, travel, hosting, stylish yet comfortable living spaces, extra buttery french croissants, and everything about Pézenas.

Louise purchased this house in 2012

What makes this house unique

The secluded sen drenched roof terrace was the selling feature for this purchase and the most attractive amenity for our holiday guests. A rarity in Pézenas, it's a warm weather haven: private, quiet, view over neighbouring rooftops, sun and shade spots, stone walled, and no roof!

Guestbook comments from the owner

FIVE STARS from Keith, UK (Airbnb): We loved everything about Porte 22. The house is spacious, comfortable and full of character. Louise provides everything you could possibly need, as well as some lovely local treats on arrival. There are also plenty of local maps and information provided. Pézenas is a wonderful town with amazing shops and restaurants and it is all just a few steps away from the house, which we found really useful. There was plenty going on even though it was early in the season and the Saturday market was fantastic. Even though you are right in the middle of town it was still really quiet at night, so we all slept brilliantly. Louise communicated really well with us and made a lot of effort to make sure we had everything we needed. Overall we strongly recommend Porte 22. You will love it!

Wish I could move here......

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently had an opportunity to stay in this most beautiful apartment. We stayed for 4 nights but it was too short! When we arrived in Pezenas, we were greeted by Patty who gave us an excellent introduction to the apartment. She was delightful and very helpful! The apartment was very quiet and we slept well at night. The kitchen is stocked with the most beautiful dinnerware and Louise has thought of everything you could possibly need. Everything about the apartment is high end from the kitchen appliances, the modern bathroom, the bed linens and towels. Wifi reception was superb. We shopped at the butcher store down the street and the small grocer for vegetables. Don't miss the market on Saturday. We had fun cooking our meals and we ate our last dinner outside on the private rooftop patio. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would love to return again for a longer stay.

Everything I thought it would be

  • 5 of 5

I always wanted a vacation in France. Not Paris, not Provence, just plain France. This was it. A fresh baguette at 8 am, un petit cafe at 5 pm, with a delightful town and countryside to explore in between. The apartment, of course, was the thing that made it all work. It had everything that a person could either need or want to make it a true second home. Louise, thanks for making this the vacation I always dreamed of.

A fabulous apartment in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Porte 22 was the perfect place to spend a week in Pezenas! Our host Louise has thought of everything to make a stay so very memorable - from the welcome basket that includes local treats and tourist information, to the lovely interiors that combine the charm of historic France with modern conveniences of today, such as a chef's kitchen, TV/wifi, and secure parking. And the location is perfect! We can't wait to return!!

Great location and well equipped!

  • 4 of 5

This charming apartment has everything you could need and the owner has definitely designed it to be comfortable. The location is great--close to restaurants and shops as well as the Saturday market. After we figured out the TV, we were able to watch some movies as well left by the owner....very comfortable beds and lovely basket of local specialties upon our arrival. Even a special delivery of pastries. Unfortunately, we did not get to use the upper patio deck because the weather was starting to get wet and colder.....but the town made up for it!

Owner's Response: Dear Cindi and friends, thank you very much for your recent visit and your kind feedback regarding the house and amenities. There is a 1 page instruction sheet we wrote up for the operation of the TV and DVD player. Will check right away to see if it requires an update. If we could have arranged for the sun to shine up on the roof terrace for you, we certainly would have!

Just to let you know we had a lovely stay in your beautiful and thoughtfully appointed apartment. It was pleasantly quite clean. Loved the rooftop patio.

Patty was a gracious greeter and gave helpful restaurant and touring ideas.

One piece of info that I think was missing from your web site is that the toilet/loo can be accessed from both bedrooms without passing through the other. We were pleased with this privacy during our stay.

So, to sum up, all was wonderful and we felt that we were your and Patty's personal guests. Wishing you much success with a well-done venture.
