About the property

Cottage in St Pons de Mauchiens, Nr. Pezenas, Herault, Languedoc-Roussillon, France - Peaceful Location And 20 Minutes From The Sea

The property offers good sized rooms but with limited height in the mezzanine bedroom. It's set in large gardens with plenty of space for children to play in. It is 10 minutes from Pezenas and 20 minutes from the beach. The change over day is Monday giving the benefit of cheaper flights and no traffic jams. The pool is private, for guests only and has a fountain which children love playing under. There is plenty of shade around the garden and a lovely roof terrace for eating and great views.

About Amanda Le Coq

Our family moved to France in 2000. We love this area and our village is small and very friendly. Our children have been educated in Pezenas, our local market town. We can get to the slopes in 2 hours for skiing in the winter. I started renting out our gite in 2000 and have been lucky enough to have had some wonderful guests, some of whom return every year.

Why Amanda Le Coq chose Clermont-l'Herault area

The location of this house is superb, both for travelling to and fro from the UK and also the views over the vineyards and mountains beyond. It's on the edge of the village and takes 15 minutes to walk there through the vineyards.

Le Pressoir Gite at St-Pons-de-Mauchiens

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful holiday, with the owners giving us the privacy we wanted. The gite is comfortable, being cool during the heat of the day. It is located as given in the description within easy walking distance of St-Pons-de-Mauchiens. The setting is lovely, with the beach about 15 to 20 minutes away, and the mountains fairly similarly distanced. We spent many afternoons around the pool which is ideal for children. There is free secure wifi internet access, although this is not available in the gite itself, (is accessed in the shaded garden), which may be a blessing for many. We drove from near Birmingham, via the channel tunnel, with a distance of nearly 850 miles, and would encourage others to use other modes of transport. We would like to thank the owners for providing us with a location that we thoroughly enjoyed and hope to return in the future, but we will fly next time.

Tranquil spot with lovely views

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here on our first visit to the area, absolutely stunning spot with views across the vineyards to the village.

A really peaceful location, but well placed to drive out and explore the area and the beach about 25 mins away. The very pretty village is within walking distance through the vineyard and has a very friendly little bar. There is a large garden with a private pool, which is gated off. On a practical level, the cottage had everything we needed and the family were extremely friendly and helpful hosts and made us very welcome. If you want a relaxing holiday in the French countryside we would strongly recommend it.
