L’Appartement Diane

Pézenas, Hérault

Beautifully quiet and airy apartment in historic townhouse, with fabulous arched loggia; 40 minutes from the Mediterranean coast


1 bedroom


Sleeps 4


Such elegance in this 17th century ‘hôtel particulier’, a grand private house with heavy wooden doors through which carriages once trundled. Step through the courtyard and into the fig, palm and oleander of the owners’ garden, looking up to see the remarkable arched and covered balconies above, where it’s said that playwright Molière once acted for the powerful Prince of Conti. Follow in his shoes up stone stairs to the apartment on the second floor. Retired dress and costume designer Corinne is your welcoming host and lives on the same floor, the fifth generation of her family to do so. There’s all you need – modern kitchen, double bedroom with good quality linen, comfy sofas and working fireplace, a second double bed behind a screen in the salon and a serene bathroom, all in white and slate grey. And best of all the wonderful loggia, where pots of jasmine scent the air and a Virginia creeper gives shade – it’s dreamy to dine out here with the setting sun and a roof top view of this lovely small town. Shop at the all day Saturday market, fish or swim in the Hérault river, drive to the coast for sandy beaches.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Corinne Aubert

  • The town of Pézenas, was the capital of the Languedoc region in the 17th century, it retains a rich architectural heritage.
  • You will love spending time wandering around this remarkable city of art and discover its craftsmen, boutiques, delicatessens, wine shops and restaurants, and of course the many flea markets that dot the main avenue.
  • Pézenas is situated at the heart of the Languedocien vineyards and is also a perfect location between the wild countryside (Salagou lake, St Guilhem desert, Hérault Gorges, Millau Viaduct, Larzac) and beautiful beaches (Sète, Cap d'Agde).
