languedoc house for rental


The most architecturally interesting parts of this large stone house date back to the 15th century, late Medieval, early Renaissance. The vaulted ceilings in the living room and a massive fireplace with carved Latin inscription recall an earlier life as the kitchen for an inn or monastery. In World War Two, the same room served as a town bomb shelter (never needed). The house is one block deep. At the rear, the avenue de St-Thibéry provides room for parking. Through the front door, you step immediately onto the tiny rue du Portail ("street of the portal"), which curves through the oldest part of Valros. Our house is part of a row of buildings that follow the old town ramparts.

The house accommodates 9 people on three floors in large comfortable rooms. On the ground floor there is a dining room, with exposed stone walls and beams, a remodelled kitchen, with fridge/freezer, cooker, and washing machine; and a very large living room with vaulted stone ceilings, and an immense working fireplace - the room is furnished with lots of comfortable seating and is well lighted for reading. Outside there is an open two level area for alfresco dining and relaxing.

Valros is a pretty town of 1,000 souls surrounded by miles of vineyards (wonderful walking, jogging, and biking country). Except for church bells and the occasional motorbike (the French teenager's basic transportation).

Nearby Pezenas was once the center of French culture when the King came south and Molière played in one of the theatres, is now full of antique stores, bookstores, restaurants, shops, as well as a large market, and supermarket.

In another direction - the Mediterranean is 20 minutes away, with fishing villages of Sete, Marseillan, Meze, providing a host of fish restaurants, and beaches from Cap d'Agde to Sete are seemingly inexhaustible.

The close access to the autoroute provides access to sights further afield such as Spain with the Dali museum in Figueras, or the cosmopilitan delights of museums and nightlife at Montpellier


Valros is within easy driving distance of International airports - Montpellier (30 mins), Carcassonne (75 mins), Toulouse (2 and a half hours) and Barcelona (3.5 hours). There are railway stations at Beziers (30 mins) and Montpellier (30 mins) with TGV connections to Paris
