In the historic heart of a charming Languedoc village lies Chez Le Vigneron, a delightful home dating back to the 17th Century which has recently been beautifully renovated with style and character.

Previously a Maison de Vigneron, or a wine-growers house, this four-bedroom residence is set out over three floors overlooking a pretty courtyard where you can sip summer cocktails, enjoy leisurely meals al-fresco or dip into the plunge-pool, perfect on long sunny afternoons.  Pretty blue shutters, intricately tiled floors and traditional exposed stone walls are just some of the characterful features that perfectly complement elegant furnishings and modern sculpture, creating a chic yet unpretentious ambience. 

At the top of the house, light streams through the sky-lights into the grand master bedroom with its own lounge area and en-suite bathroom whilst a sweet narrow balcony leads to two en-suite bedrooms and a cosy lounge on the first floor, where you’ll also find an impressive terrace, perfect for a morning coffee or simply relaxing in the sun. 

The living room downstairs sets the tone for convivial living and the elegant kitchen features a Smeg stove and Nespresso machine. A further en-suite bedroom can be found in a separate apartment, just across from the courtyard, with its own lounge and kitchen, ideal for those looking for a little more privacy during their stay.

In the morning wander a couple of minutes to one of the village boulangeries to pick up your morning croissants and on a Friday don’t miss the small but delightful village market for a wealth of wonderful produce. The historic village is surrounded by vineyards and wine-growers, some within walking distance and others just a short drive where you can enjoy sampling local wine followed by a long lunch in a glorious countryside setting. 

It’s a ten-minute drive to beautiful Pézenas, filled with fine restaurants, art galleries and antique shops as well as an amazing market on a Saturday morning. You can also reach the coast within half an hour where you can sample freshly caught oysters, take part in a great variety of watersports or enjoy the long stretches of sandy beaches. 

There’s even more to discover in the hidden gem of Béziers or the cosmopolitan city of Montpellier yet you may just prefer to simply hire a bike or discover a walking trail through the surrounding olive groves and vineyards which make the landscapes of this part of southern France so spectacular.

Region

Languedoc-Roussillon is one of those areas of France where you can feel like you’re totally cut off from the rest of the country. Commercial tourism has been very slow to capitalise on the region, meaning you can still enjoy a slice of authentic French rural life at its finest. A mixture of landscapes also makes it a great place to visit, with a good stretch of coastline offering a totally different experience to more bucolic interiors. Whatever you’re looking for, our range of villas and chateaux in Languedoc means you can get exactly the kind of holiday you want with accommodation that’s perfectly tailored to you, your friends and your family.

Reviews

  • The villa exceeded out expectations!

    on 13/11/2023

    The villa exceeded out expectations, as did the location in Caux. The bedrooms were all large and en suite and provided all we needed. The central pool was very welcome to relax in, and the outdoor seating and dining was great. Just come prepared for mosquitoes! The kitchen provided everything we needed and the various other shared areas were great for some privacy. The local agents were excellent too.

  • Lovely villa in an excellent location

    on 16/10/2023

    We really enjoyed our stay at 'Chez le Vigneron'. The accommodation is very well designed around the heated plunge pool. With 4 separate bedrooms all with privacy and private bathrooms, which suited our 4 couple group ideally. The central location is ideal, the village being exceptionally pretty and having all the basic facilities that you need. We enjoyed many meals in the central courtyard with the only downside being the mosquitoes (come prepared). Oliver's Travels were great to deal with, making the booking process very easy, Constance and Chiara were always quick to respond to queries and requests. The local property managers were also very helpful. We would definitely recommend the villa for a relaxing holiday in October (temperatures were still in the high 20s (early Oct 23) and Oliver's Travels as a booking agent.

  • Gorgeous
