DOMAINE DU LAC AND SURROUNDING AREA
The villa is part of the brand new, exclusive residence, 'Le Domaine du Lac' situated within the beautiful private grounds of the St Thomas Golf and Country Club.
Hugely desirable location, midway between Béziers and Pézenas, just 15 miles from lovely Mediterranean beaches, there is plenty of choice between Sete, Marseillan, Valras and Portiragnes. The water is shallow, clean and safe for young children. Between Sete and Marseillan is a wonderful sandy beach that’s 7km long. Sete on the Mediterranean is known as “Little Venice” because of its criss-crossed canals while Marseillan on the sea lake “Bassin de Thau” has retained much of its original character – a small fishing port. Seafood is a speciality and the Bassin de Thau houses thousands of oyster beds. Nearby Cap d’Agde is a host to yachts and boats with a magnificent port, cafes and restaurants, nightclubs, casino and every watersport imaginable.
Aside from the golf and leisure activities, there is so much to see and do in this fantastic area. The Renaissance town of Pézenas is 15 mins away with delightful shops dotted among the winding streets in the heart of the old village. There are many, many restaurants and pavement café bars to choose from.
The outlying area is awash with vineyards, the Languedoc is one of the largest wine-producing regions in the world.
Half an hour away, you'll find yourself in another world among the stunning gorges and lakes of the Languedoc national park. Superb walking, hiking and river rafting, or gentler watersports and swimming at Lake Salagou.
The town of Béziers (8 miles) offers something for everyone. A huge tree lined boulevard hosts endless cafés and outdoor restaurants as well as an enormous flower market on Fridays. There are many cultural events throughout the summer, including the spectacular 'Féria' when street markets, musicians and traditional concerts, take over the whole town for four days. This is not to be missed.
The delightful, waterside village of Agde (20 minutes) will charm you with its beautiful old painted village houses, winding streets with fascinating shops, superb restaurants and traditional markets. Possibly the best place to buy fresh fish in the Languedoc. Early-risers can buy straight from the returning fishing boats in the morning.
For those interested in discovering more about the most famous aperitif in the south of France, there are guided tours around the Paul Ricard (pastis) caves in Bessan. Or on a similar theme, visit the caves and museum of Noilly Prat in the spectacular harbour side village of Marseillan (35 minutes). Further afield, the kids will love the huge water park 'Aqualand' in the chic resort of Cap d'Agde.
Major attractions such as Carcassonne, Nîmes, the Cathar castles and the Camargue, are within an easy drive and there are lots of things to do locally. Our nearest towns are Pézenas and Beziers.
Fishing, lake-swimming, windsurfing, riding and are all nearby and for music lovers there is a series of local festivals in the region throughout the summer.
Montpellier the “capital” of Languedoc is 40 minutes drive: excellent museums, a medieval cathedral, an opera, cinemas, and loads of good shops. The Pont du Gard and all the beauties of Provence and the Camargue Regional Park is less than a couple of hours away. In the other direction, the Spanish border and Barcelona are within easy reach.
