Area activities

This luxury Languedoc villa is located near the village of Alignan du Vent which has two shops, two boulangeries, café, bar, hairdresser, pharmacy and twice weekly market.

Vineyards dominate the gentle rolling landscape around Alignan du Vent. The village is in the midst of the Hérault. The local co-operative (wine) is an easy stroll around the back of the house. Here you can stock up on the local wines and delicacies. The several shops include two boulangeries and are complimented by a twice-weekly open market.

Visit the nearby town of Pézenas. It has 70 odd listed buildings dating from the renaissance to the 18th century. Its arcaded courtyards and staircases provide it with a distinctive architecture. Moliere spent a number of seasons here in the 1650s. From mid-June through September it is the prefect venue for the festivals, concerts and exhibition called the Mirondela dels Arts.

On your way to the Mediterranean stop off at Agde. Founded by the Greeks, It overlooks the Hérault River. It has its own harbour with lovely black basalt sand, good hotels and restaurant. The Bassin de Thau - 20km away - is one of the largest lagoons along the Mediterranean shore. Its fame lies with the oysters and mussels it produces. You can backtrack to Marseillan for an oyster lunch and to try their own aperitif, Noilly-Prat. Further up along the Bassin is Meze, another fishing port and very popular destination for seafood.

Sète is France´s biggest Mediterranean fishing port. It is an attractive town laced with canals and many fish and seafood restaurants. You can pick up a boat tour back around the Bassin. Have a look at Béziers. Aside from its tragic history it is best known for its rugby team and the August feria, a festival with bullfights and Spanish feel. In 1209 during the albigensian crusade, virtually the whole population was burned alive in the cathedral where they had taken refuge. The town regenerated in the 1660s with the building of the Canal du Midi.

Other transport

There is a TGV train station in Beziers. There is a regular bus service between Beziers and Pezenas (4km away).

Fantastic Stay

We had the pleasure of spending a week at this property and it was exactly what we were looking for. We were a group of nine people family and friends and two dogs and the villa was very comfortable. We ate dinners every night on the patio and it was lovely. The pool was fantastic - both the humans and dogs had a great time. The property is well-equipped and had everything we needed, from the kitchen to the gym. Accommodations were plentiful, comfortable and clean. The setting is beautiful and peaceful with amazing views. Particularly enjoyed the sunrise over the vineyard and the rooster's crow in the morning. A peaceful and relaxing time was had by all.The wonderful hosts were available for the few questions and requests we had. Thank you for wonderful vacation. We plan to return!

The setting is ideal

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Domaine de Montarel. The setting is idyllic and peaceful, it is only a short drive to Pezenas and the owners could not have been more helpful and accommodating. We would definitely go back.
