Place Saint Jacques - Le Pouget

At the heart of the village of Le Pouget, attached to the old village church (church and place protected by the Buildings of France) a charming village house of the sixteenth century, for 2 people, private courtyard, private terrace, great view. The house is in the upper village, located in an area away from traffic but close to shops and center of village life. This recently restored house has retained its original charm: stone interior walls, terracotta and wooden floors, beamed ceilings, kitchen 'à l'ancienne', large corner bath overlooking the valley and vineyards, antique furniture, the whole giving a sense of authenticity and elegance. Adjacent courtyard with private deck, dining table, barbecue and herb garden. Equipped and comfortable. The house is full of character and is in an excellent position to visit the area. Lovers of vineyards and wine will enjoy tasting the rich production of award-winning wines from the Languedoc. The village has a few small shops selling basic food and household items. A nice, rustic little restaurant (La Bohème) is located in the village as part of the village café, cooking delicious food at extremely attractive prices. For larger supermarket shopping there is an Hyper U and an Intermarche in the nearby town of Clermont l'Herault or Gignac (both 10 mins drive). Pouget has a Tuesday and Friday morning market for fresh fruit and veg, oysters and meat. Lots of wine estates that you can visit to sample and buy wine. (see our Vins et Domaines paper). Clermont l'Herault and Gignac are the nearest points for banks and a selection of decent restaurants. Lots of interesting historic villages and towns dotted around and the coast has plenty of options - loud and bright, with funfairs and discos (Marseillan Plage) or Agde, or for a traditional fishing port where you can eat at the covered fish market and wander the canals, try Sete. Bouzigues is our favorite though: a small fishing village with beautiful view on the Thau bassin and amazing seafood. Carcassonne and the land of the Cathars is within relatively easy reach too, either by train or car and it is possible to visit Barcelona for a day trip. The place is really full of both urban and rural places of interest and you can fill your holiday with variety. 30 km from the sea, Montpellier and Sete. To discover in the area: St. Guilhem le Desert, World Heritage site. Lake Salagou, place of recreation and an important tourist site, now protected. Beziers, well known for its history, architecture, gastronomy. Please note that the house, although beautiful in many way, is an old traditional house: there are places with low ceilings, a narrow passage with three steps down into the kitchen, stone staircases at the entrance and it does need some further renovation work. We feel that the prices stated take this into account.

Lovely, unique house
We had a really lovely time at this beautifully restored and converted house. It's a really unique place with tons of charm. The views from the bedroom are spectacular and the house has everything you should need for your stay. Le Pouget, is great too - a kind of medieval rabbit warren. A word on 'the bell' as I remember there being other comments about this: it really is no issue. It rings I think three times a day, which didn't bother us at all.

Delightful
The house was charming - full of character, clean and comfortable. Chantelle was very helpful and the medieval village is also a delight.
