A very special home in a historic village.
Maison de Maitre is a beautifully restored 14th Century house in a well-preserved medieval village a few kilometers from Pezenas, the jewel of this region of the Languedoc Roussillon. The materials used and the creative use of the spaces in the tower structure make a stunning impression. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and especially appreciated the views from all levels of the house out over the village and the surrounds. The sunsets were fabulous.
This region rewards true lovers of rural France and the lively market and shops and craftsman of Pezenas are a treat.

Amazing and enchanting
This house is even more beautiful than the pictures can depict. The Town is quaint and beautiful. Such a feeling of ancient history. Close to larger towns with beautiful walks by vineyards, olive groves and fig trees. The house fully applianced and very up to date kitchen and bathrooms. Owner is a pleasure and accessible as well as his staff. Thank you ... the 6 of us couldn`t have had a better experience.

Fantastic property in a beautiful, friendly village
The property is well presented and situated within a wonderful, friendly village. Lots of room to socialise and there`s nothing better than to watch the sun go down from the Belvedere, glass of wine in hand. Carcassonne medieval city, Canal du Midi wine cruise (courtesy of Vin et Vacance) highly recommended.

A wonderful time was had by all
We stayed here with family members coming and going over a 12 day period. It was a great gathering spot. Some of our adult children went to the pizza restaurant just around the corner most nights and were coaxed in their French! They enjoyed those evenings immensely! The weather was not conducive to pool use, but we did not miss it. Lots of road trips from this location. Carcassonne, St. Guilhem, La Couvertoirade, S?te, Meze. Chateau de Queribus and Peyrepertuse. And the gorges! D`Heric, de Herault, and the unforgettable drive on the Gorges de Galamus road!!!

This is a wonderful property, well maintained and well located. The property itself is a brilliant mixture of old world charm and modern convenience. It is located in a charming village quite close to P?zenas for local colour and needs and the motorway for longer day journeys to cities such as Nimes Montpellier Carcasson and Narbonne. We had 3 couples stay for 10 days and were very comfortable and well entertained.
