About the property

Charming gîtes,french lessons

Imagine a lovely house with character, typical, authentic and genuine...4 separate units on one side around a beautiful stone staircase, 2 other places and a few shared areas...There are some geckos on the walls during the hot summer evenings, the singing of the birds in the blue sky of the garden and a few guitar chords in the air...and the voice of Guilhem telling us his stories, his past, Provence, the wine, his life, his passions...

And in the surroundings the Etang de Thau, the sea, never really far, the omnipresent vines, the cicadas shrilling, the thyme perfume, the colours of the Garrigue, the Salagou lake, the Petite Camargue and the Larzac...the various landscapes of Herault, its impressive heritage, its cultural treasures: gastronomy, wine, and lifestyle, etc.

All the pleasures of discovery, the hikes, the outdoor activities, water in all its forms - sea, pond, lake, river, caves - and the sun, with the accent, of course...

Ideal for family or group holidays: Our house is really unique and particular. It has several buildings dispatched around the garden.

Several different combinations are possible for groups of 2 to 20 persons in 4 semi-detached houses.

Electricity is paid following the consumption: €0.29/kw

Some covered areas, a patio, a courtyard, a garden full of small corners...

The opportunity for a dynamic and convivial discovery of the wine world and of oenology, on the land: Herault is the archetypal wine region of France, the one where everything started, during the Greek era...

A wine producer and a teacher will guide you from a distance for the unique discovery of this thousand years old world that comes back at the forefront with sublime products...a real global introduction, at the heart of our wine-producing region, you will finally understand the whole process to create this mythical product and you will discover it its real production setting...

A native French teacher can help you with your French : special stays or Skyê tutoring. Just ask for details...

And let's not forget the extremely good local restaurant: the Bistrot d'Alex, where you will enjoy a gastronomic lunch and some reduced prices for the wines...

and the fish farm by the pond to savour the Etang de Thau's productions...

More discovery or exploration advices of the Languedoc and its culture: Do not loose any more time searching and do not miss the essential: we help you choose your destinations and discoveries depending on your tastes and passions...A spontaneous help is proposed, we will unveil a few secrets of this multifaceted region, a real civilisation junction, which has real landscape and heritage treasures.

Because, yes, we can say it is one of the regions of France with the most varied landscapes... Therefore, some geologists called their books 'Herault, mirror of earth'...

We can find in a small area all types of landscapes:

White sand beaches, divided beaches or volcanic beaches,

Ponds (Thau, Or, Arnel, and a few others),

Lakes (Salagou, etc.)

Alluvial plains,

Hillsides,

Carved valleys,

Garrigues,

Plateaux and limestone plateaux (Larzac),

Cirques: created by rivers (the Vis in Navacelle), or dolomitic (Moureze, Montpellier le Vieux),

Caves (Claouse, Demoiselles, Arbeil, etc.),

Mountain (Cevennes and the Aigual, Montagne Noire, the Pyrenees not far away).

The Heraults kept marks from almost all the past civilisations and eras:

We are the French department which has the most megaliths (often small than in Brittany, but not always...) : dolmens (Pouget, Coste Rouge...there are more than 365), menhirs...

neolithic accommodations (the village of Cambous),

Greek sites (Agde and its archaeological remains),

Celtic (oppidums: Enserune, etc.),

Roman (the bridge between Saint-Thybery and Florensac, the Domitian way called here the 'Chemin de la Reine Juliette' even if we all forgot who is Juliette), ancient mines (Fontes), Beziers and its hidden remains...

Medieval age: circular villages, churches, abbeys, Cathar Castles (Minerve, etc.), Saint-Guilhem-le-Desert,

the renaissance era...

The 17th century with the superb town of Pezenas and its particular barns, capital of the Languedoc at that time, to discover at night in summer for the Mirondelles, Montpellier, the dynamic city, and its private mansions,

the Canal du Midi, proud of its 9 locks listed at the World Cultural Heritage, its canal bride in Beziers, its round lock in Agde, its particular tunnel in Malpas...

The 18th century extravagance around Montpellier,

its 19th century castles, the beautiful villas of Grau d'Agde,

the harbour of Setes, jeune demoiselle, the Venice of Languedoc, and the resort cities of the 20th century, la Grande Motte, the Cap d'Agde, Rochelongue, etc.

Let's not forget the thousands of small treasures to discover: the fruits, the shells, the gastronomy, the avant-garde sectors are often unexpected, the writers, the singers, the artists, or even a druid in the Aude or a hermit in Saint-Guilhem...people from Languedoc are friendly nature, he only wants to share his sun, the sea, his passions, his memory and his secrets...and even his accent!

For surprising holidays, rich, authentic, and customized...

With moreover the unique conviviality of a real bed and breakfast: the garden in summer and the large living room in any seasons are often the setting of nice improvised chats between renters coming from all the horizons...Each one goes down the stairs spontaneously when he wants to, with a cup of coffee, a teapot or a wine bottle...or he will be attracted by the smell of a coffee flambé, a punch or a sangria...

Ideal for family or group holidays: Our house is really unique and particular. It has several buildings dispatched around the garden.

Several different combinations are possible for groups of 2 to 20 persons in 4 semi-detached houses.

Une belle surprise

  • 5 of 5

Un vrai accueil dans le jardin, sous la tonnelle et le charme opère immédiatement. On se sent bien.

Le gîte Muscat est parfait pour un couple. confortable, pratique, une décoration soignée aux couleurs chaude et une bonne literie !

Selon vous goûts ou vos envies, Joëlle vous conseillera sur les visites à faire dans les environs (Pézenas, St Guilhem le Désert, Lac du Salagou, cirque de Mourèze , gorges d'Héric et bien sûr la mer, les plages).

Voiture indispensable : possibilités de parking dans le village.

Séjour plus que recommandable.

Millor que a casa

  • 5 of 5

Els dies que vam passar a casa de la Joëlle van ser fantàstics. L’allotjament molt còmode, net i cuidat. La relació qualitat preu excel·lent. Florensac és un poble petitó i tranquil amb tots els serveis i una base ideal per a un munt d’excursions: Montpelhièr, Besièrs, Pesenàs, Agde, Sant Guilhèm dau Desèrt, Sant Pèire e Sant Pau de Magalona...

I tan important (o més) que tot això la conversa tranquil·la amb la Joëlle, el seu coneixement de l’entorn, el seu lligam amb la terra, els seus consells sobre el que es pot visitar, el que s’ha de tastar... Ah, i tot això sense haver-se de preocupar de l’idioma. La Joëlle parla occità, català, francès, castellà, portuguès i anglès!

Recomanable al 100 per 100.

Wunderschönes Haus im Herzen der Altstadt

  • 5 of 5

Wir wurden sehr nett von Joelle empfangen, sie zeigt uns das ganze Haus, indem sich mehrere Ferienwohnungen befinden. Unsere Wahl war das Appartement Muscat, nett eingerichtet und sehr sauber. Wir kamen schnell ins Gespräch mit ihr, sie empfahl uns viele Sehenswürdigkeiten in der Umgebung.

In dem kleinen Dorf wurden wir sofort heimisch und werden sehr gerne wieder bei Joelle einkehren.

Vielen Dank für alles, à bientôt, Irini und Georg

Zwei Wochen bei Joelle und Livia

  • 5 of 5

Wir (Familie mit zwei Töchtern 13,15) haben dieses Jahr zwei Wochen bei Joelle verbracht und sie wirklich genossen. Florensac ist ein kleines, französisches Dörfchen und wir als Touristen waren da schon fast eine Attraktion. Nur 10 km vom Meer und schon kaum noch Touristen... Von außen kann man überhaupt nicht erahnen, wieviele Ferienwohnungen sich hinter der alten Fassade verstecken - daher staunt man, wenn man durch das große Tor tritt: Ein wunderschönes, altes Treppenhaus empfängt einen. Von dort ab gehen 6 Ferienwohnungen, alle nach Rebsorten benannt und jeweils in einem Farbton gehalten. Fünf Sterne gibt es, nicht weil es Luxuswohnungen sind, sonder weil alles mit Liebe betreut wird. Und wenn dann mal etwas fehlt - Joelle ist nicht weit! Sie spricht spanisch, französisch und englisch und ist immer bereit einem bei Problemen hilfreich zu sein oder super Empfehlungen für Ausflugsziele zu geben. Unsere Töchter haben sich abends mit der Tochter, Livia und anderen französischen Jugendlichen getroffen - also alles in allem mit "Familienanschluss"! Ausflugsziele gibt es jede Menge, so waren wir in Montpellier, Narbonne, Carcassonne und Sète, sowie am Meer (Marseillan-Plage), am Lac Salagou und in den Bergen auf Kanu Tour durch den Hérault... Es hat auch Spaß gemacht im gemeinsamen Innenhof zu Essen, man traf allerlei Nationen und es gab einen regen Austausch.

Danke - und wir kommen wieder Joelle und Livia :)
