Thinking of taking a late break in October? With slightly lower temperatures but dependable long sunny days, it's a great time to explore this truly authentic part of France with great wine, lovely local eateries, fabulous vineyards and lots of interesting things to do nearby. Hop on one of our bikes to take in the beautiful nature around the villa or, if you want to just rest and relax by the pool, the sound of the cicadas will keep you company. We still have availability in September and October so please email me direct for great discounts of up to 50% for those dates. The tranquil sun soaked valley of Saint-Etienne-de-Gourgas, a few kilometers from the Cathedral town of Lodeve, hardly changes from year to year and never disappoints. This peaceful hamlet, in the Languedoc region of the South of France, not far from Montpellier, is where our family villa sits, offering a holiday to completely rejuvenate you.
Imagine lunch of succulent heritage tomatoes with mozzarella or traditional steak tartare at the local bar, sipping a glass of beautiful languedoc wine beneath the plane trees, then relaxing by the pool or taking a walk around the stunning countryside.
The villa is detached and has its own private secluded pool and garden with beautiful views from the terrace, so it's a peaceful haven if you want to take it easy for the day. Alternatively there are local markets and restaurants to visit, bike rides (we have a good range of mountain bikes in the garage for you to use), beaches, vineyards, waterfall jumps and spectacular scenic walks right on your doorstep. Over the years we have written our local ‘guide for guests’ where we share all the amazing places we have discovered over the years.
The weather is great in summer with long hot sunny days, and the Languedoc region regularly experiences beautiful sunny weather as early as April and through October, making it a great mid and low season option.
Please browse the website and then call for a chat. We are very happy to answer any questions you may have. Susan & David Gebbie
