A charming townhouse set over three floors with a small terrace overlooking miles of French countryside. This house is perfect for young and older couples alike, keen to explore the historic area – and perhaps interested in its viticulture as well.
With beautiful wild flowers coming out in the spring before the temperature climbs, Tressan leads out to idyllic dog walks which is why we allow "man's best friend" in the house.
For children aged 4 and above, the car-free medieval streets awaken the imagination. Venturing out to play with the local children in the relative cool of the night brings a special holiday excitement and swimming in the Herault or lac du Salagou creates golden memories for the entire family.
With the master bedroom separated from the twin bedroom by the entire living area floor, this house is ideal for two sets of couples who wish to holiday together but appreciate their privacy as well.

The house is in the hilltop village of Tressan, next to Belarga and Puilacher – a quick 15 drive to the larger town of Clermont l’Herault with its shops, restaurants and waterpark; 40 minutes to an hour from the beaches at Sete and Agde, the city of Montpellier and the spectacular Grottes des Demoiselles, and easy day trip distance (90 mins to 2 hours) from the historic centres of Nimes, Avignon and Toulouse. The beautiful lac du Salagou is just 25 minutes away.
Tressan itself is unashamedly quaint, with its tiny car-free streets and medieval, higgledy-piggledy townhouses of vastly varying size and grandeur. On account of the heat, during the summer months all is quiet during the day with families going out to stroll in the evenings. Without a traditional bar, the local shop has ventured into simple café fare, and you can sit out with a glass of wine to watch the village enjoy the relative cool of the evening.
Steps lead up to the front door and you enter the cool of the hallway with the galley kitchen running alongside. The kitchen has a brand new oven and fridge, all the equipment you should require and plenty of working surface. There is also a washing machine (drying rack is upstairs).
The adjacent dining area has a large table. Next to that is the comfortable seating area with local television and DVD player. Please note that tenants must bring their own DVDs.
The twin bedroom is downstairs along with and a loo, basin and shower. This floor is set in the rock and so by far the coolest area of the house during the scorching summer. This floor is referred to as the “sous sol” because it is effectively underground. The thickness of cliff wall is apparent by looking out of the north facing window.
Upstairs is the master bedroom with a Juliet balcony overlooking the narrow street outside, also a changing area, and bathroom, again with loo and basin. A door leads out on to the small terrace with spectacular views of the rural countryside.
The terrace is small, with a table and chairs. There are x2 recliners for a spot of sunbathing and a barbecue.

Please note that the interior stairs are steep, and there are also five steps up to the front door so if your dog has a problem with stairs you need to be able to lift him/her.Get the full listing »
