With four bedrooms (1 king, 2 double and 1 twin) and two stylish Italian shower rooms we can accommodate 8 guests (travel cot also available on request). The rooms all have reversible air units (AC in the summer and warm air in the winter) as well as a wood burning stove in the living area for out of summer season stays.

Our large (10 meters x 5 meters) pool is surrounded by lounging areas and landscaped Mediterranean gardens. The outside living area has a toilet, shower and kitchen/living area with BBQ, hot/cold water, and ample work surfaces which gives you the option to prepare your meals al fresco.

There is a another BBQ by the main house kitchen, giving you lots of catering options.

Various other large supermarkets within 10 minutes drive.

The local wine cooperative is a two minute walk away and the delightful wines can be purchased by the bottle or the liter! There are two further vineyards in the village offering tasting, and at least one in every village you drive through. It’s 15 minutes to the delightful St Chinian, which gives it’s name to the regions DOP wines.

You can be at the beach in 25 minutes, swim in the river Orb in 5, or hire a Kayak in 15. There is a golf course in Lamalu (15 minutes away) and of course exploring Beziers and Narbonne (where you can hire a boat for the day and poodle along the Canal de Midi, or browse the art galleries and antique shops in historical Pezenas.

About Lesley Manning

We are a family of four, from the South of England.

Lesley Manning purchased this villa in 2015

Why Lesley Manning chose Murviel-lès-Béziers

After spending many years visiting various parts of France, we finally decided to buy a holiday home in the Languedoc, as it brings together all the best France has to offer. Great wines (you are never more than 10 meters from a vine it seems) lovely beaches, fresh food and produce

The house had been empty for sometime before we bought it, and it needed quiet a lot of work, however we fell in love with the pool and the location and decided to bite the bullet!

What makes this villa unique

Set at the end of long drive on the edge of the village, you are a few minutes leisurely stroll of the village and all its amenities, however it is so calm and quiet you could be in the middle of the countryside.

The local wine cooperative is just over the road, and we are lucky to have 3 different wine producers in the village!

Perfect stay in a beautiful villa.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful property for two weeks in August. I'm pleased to say that the reality is every bit as good as the photos and description.

The property is perfect for two families. With two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs and the same downstairs we had a feeling of space. The living areas were also very spacious, so we never felt like we were on top of each other. The kitchen is very well equipped, it's clear the owners have put a lot of thought into the small details that really make a villa holiday.

Outside the property has a large pool area, outside kitchen, bbq area and yet even more space. The pool isn't heated so it took us a few days to get used to the temperature. Around the pool is artificial grass, this was great as we had two younger children so we weren't constantly worried about them falling over. (Make sure you have flip flops though, the grass can get very hot in the midday sun!) The covered area by the pool was well used by us, especially as we experienced some very hot days. We loved the fact that the plot was very spacious yet secure.

We loved the proximity of the property to shops in the village. The morning stroll to the bakery took less than 10 mins. There are at least two bakeries - we preferred the one that is further away but you have to get there early to guarantee croissants and pan au chocolat, but they are worth getting up for! The village also has a Lidl, pharmacy and restaurant. Other bigger supermarkets are only a short drive away. We also found a small park for the children again this was only a short walk away.

We loved the area, so many great places to explore. The owners provided suggestions of places to see. Our personal highlights were canoeing at Roquebrun, swimming in the river, Friday evening food and drink festival at Pezenas and wine tasting in the many, many wineries. (Our favourite was chateau coujan just up the road from the property). There were lots of other lovely places to see and things to do.

The owners were very approachable and responsive to queries. They are very knowledgable on the area which was extremely helpful.

Our one top tip...brush up on your French, you will need to use it!

All in all, a fantastic holiday... we hope to return

A spacious property with traditional external features but minimalist modern interior

  • 5 of 5

Inside, the property was well equipped and spotless throughout. The large pool and surrounding area was excellent and the outside kitchen, barbecue and covered seating was much appreciated in the very hot weather we experienced. The owners were very helpful and responded immmediately to any queries, before and during our stay. The village was quiet but the shops within walking distance were very convenient and the two supermarkets, only a short drive away, made the 'major' shopping trips easy. Many interesting things to do within relatively short distances made this an ideal place to make a base for a relaxing but fun holiday. Canal de Midi, the beach, Roquebrun, Pezenas and the local wineries to name but a few!!

Thanks, we had a great time.

Car: recommended

Our holiday home is comfortably furnished and set it a large plot which is very private and quiet yet only minutes from all the amenities in Murviel.

Set perfectly between the mountains and the sea it is the perfect base to explore all this amazing region has to offer, or just kick back, relax and enjoy the wine!

Pezenas is only 20 minutes away by car. Swim in the lake at Salagu, or visit Sete for some seriously fresh sea food.

St Chinian is 15 minutes away, and don't miss Roquebrun (for the canoeing or just because it's so beautiful!

Les Gorges d'Héric is a scenic drive through the mountains and worth the hike to the top. We spotted otters on our first walk here. Swim in the pools in the summer.

There is a tourist office in the village (next to Lidls supermarket) which has maps and information on all the area has to offer.

There are two lovely walks which start from Murviel.

There are three (free) public tennis courts in the village, behind the sports hall. There is also a childrens playground and skateboard park.

If you are here between 1st July and 31st August you will see the "Petetas" life size models of historical figures from local history and trades, fixed to the buildings and dotted around the village.
