Covid-19 measures in place!

This ground floor apartment is located in the grounds of the most prominent mansion of Lagamas village, offering unique views on 19th century bourgeois architecture. Old stones galore.
The apartment is quiet, attached to a wood and terracotta veranda much appreciated in summer and has access to a shared garden.
Centrally located in the Hérault Valley, it is ideal for friends or a couple wishing to explore the region and beyond.

The space
We are aware of your concerns about Covid-19. We have introduced very strict cleaning measures (gloves and mask for our cleaning lady, sanitisation of all contact surfaces...). We are available for any question you may have.

This full of character ground floor apartment offers a kitchen, one sitting room/large bedroom for up to three guests, a shower room (accessible via stairs) and separate WC.

The single beds (90x200) feature high quality mattresses, ideal for a couple plus one guest. One of the single bed hides underneath a third bed of the same quality, extractable. A fourth foldable bed can be added on request.
Linen (bed sheets, towels) is included.

Whilst being in the centre of the village, the apartment is very quiet: it is part of an ensemble of 19th c. buildings protected by a walled garden, offering privacy and unspoilt views.
The living area opens on a stylish veranda using local materials, ideal in the summer. There is a shared access to the property garden with an elected area.

Furnished with style (antiques) and featuring some charming details such as traditional tiling (tomettes) and wooden beams, this ground floor apartment offers the perfect retreat or stop-over to explore the Languedoc region.

I have come here every year since I was born, and have never felt bored! This is truly an inspiring region.

Where you’ll be

Lagamas, Languedoc-Roussillon Midi-Pyrénées, France

Located in the small and preserved village of Lagamas, you will reside in the heart of the Hérault Valley, with stunning views on vineyards and olive trees.
The village is characterised by its traditional architecture across (maison de maitre, maisons de vignerons) and a lovely church, which is a miniature of Chateauroux cathedral....
There is a plethora of things to see, do and taste nearby...

Only 15 minutes away from 'les gorges de l'Hérault' and St Guilhem-le-Désert (UNESCO site), the region boosts an endless suite of attractions:

- Sport amateurs don't be shy: swimming, canyoning, cave exploration, climbing, nautical activities (Lac du Salagou), snorkeling and scuba-diving, riding, mountain bike, free ride, hiking*, golf, tennis, aqualand, and the ultimate one: sunbathing (the region has over 300 days of sunshine!)

- A heaven for foodies: there are great markets and winegrowers all around. Look for great cuisine such as Michelin star De Lanzun restaurant in Gignac. Scout for fantastic wines as the valley is said to be the most creative and dynamic wine region in the world (there are 3 producers in the village itself - ask us more by email for further recommendations).

- History galore: St Guilhem-le-Désert village and abbey, the so-called Bridge of the Devil, Roman ruins, the Midi Canal...

- Some exceptional and diverse natural treasuries: view point from the Pic Saint-Loup and Mont Saint-Baudile, the Clamouse caves, the Hérault canyon, the landform cirque of Navacelles and dolomitic limestone outcrop of Mourèze, the Larzac plateau, the Camargue estuary...

- Lively historical cities: Montpellier, Bézier, Sète, Aigues-Mortes, Pézenas, Lodève and for a day trip Nîmes, Arles…

- Plenty of museums: St-Jean-de-Fos pottery museum Argileum, Cap d'Agde aquarium, Copper mine Pioch Farrus, Reptilium…

And a dense agenda of concerts, shows, local products fairs, festivals... not just during the summer season.

[* hiking: I often go walking with my good neighbour Denis, who is passionate about his region and will be very happy to organise against a modest fee local visits such as a discovery trip to his vineyards and olive trees in his 2CV, walks (from beginners to advanced level), caves... - Just let me know when contacting me]

Bonjour / Hello Je travaille dans le secteur de l'art, à l'intersection de la technologie (art-techs), philanthropie et commissariat / écriture. Je voyage régulièrement en Europe et de part le monde à l'affut de nouvelles rencontres et expériences. Airbnb m'accompagne souvent dans mes plans de route... et offrir la réciproque avec notre maison de famille languedocienne coule de source. I work in the art sector, as a curator, art advisor, trustee and on art-tech startups. I travel a good deal in Europe and across other continents, where I enjoy meeting new people and discovering new places. I sometimes use airbnb when travelling and have had such positive experiences that I like to rent my South of France family place.
