About this listing
The house is in a small village in a gorgeous part of south of France.
If you love the outdoors there are many things to do locally, hiking, cycling, motorcycling. You can swim, kayak or fish on the Orb or just relax.
The house was fully renovated a few years back and you have your own good sized room with shared use of bathroom, kitchen and living area. I have a large garage which you could potentially use for your cherished car or motorcycle if needed. There is lots of parking outside.
The bedroom has a double bed. There is potential for an extra single bed if necessary.
You have access to your own private bedroom, A shared bathroom (downstairs) with just me, living area and kitchen. A little patio at the front where you could sit in the sunshine / eat.
Interaction with guests
I will be available as much or little as you require. I can advise on things to do and potentially collect or drop off anywhere. You will have your privacy and at all times I respect your quiet time and space
The house has very fast reliable Wifi which guests appreciate.
The Tv is connected to a playstation which you can watch Netflix on or live tv through a browser. There are also a selection of games and Dvds for some entertainment.
There is a cafe / epicery being built in the village which should be ready in Spring 2017.
Also a boulangerie van which has bread and cakes stops outside the house 6 mornings a week around 10 - 10.30 AM.
There are various markets at nearby towns and villages with my favourite being Saint Chinian on a Sunday morning. Saint Chinian is small but has 3 restaurants and bars with other shops.
You can get to the beaches in roughly 30 minutes to the closest as Valras plage or if you prefer there are lots of spots to swim in the river Orb, Roquebrun is a favourite.
The Canal du midi is less than 15 minutes away at Capestang.
There are many airport options with the nearest and my favourite being Beziers which has some very cheap flights with other choices being Carcasonne, Montpellier, Toulouse, Perpignan, Nimes or even Girona and Barcelona.
It goes without saying there are many caves nearby to get some great wine at fantastic prices.
There are limited buses from the village so planning is necessary. They can take you to Beziers and some of the surrounding villages.
Other things to note
I have a couple of mountain bikes in the garage which you could borrow to explore the hills or local villages. It is under 4 miles to nearest mini supermarket in Cessenon Sur Orb, or a 3 mile cycle ride on a track. 6 miles to a large supermarket and various shops in Cazouls Les Beziers.

Hi all. I recently decided to change my life after working full time all my life in the UK. I am mostly based here in my French house (near Saint Chinian) which I have had for 10 years. I also have a motor home for travelling and a love of motorbikes and have been on many adventures.
I am English but am trying to improve my French and almost non exsistant spanish.
I am a strict non smoker and enjoy fresh air and a healthy lifestyle, having a real lust for life and exploration.
