Faugères, Hérault

A wow of a self-catering retreat overlooking stunning landscapes and wooded mountains. Come for hammock-lazing, saltwater pool and serenity


4 beds


3 bedrooms


Sleeps 6


It’s a wow of a place, set into the hillside overlooking grand landscapes and wooded mountainsides. The attractive red cedar wood house – originally built as a restaurant – embraces you from the moment you arrive, with its bright rooms, commanding views and sense of quiet retreat. Choose the downstairs double with its own shower room, or a double and a twin that share a large light bathroom. Modern furnishings and patchwork fabrics ensure a fresh simplicity, the stone pillars and large beams in the kitchen-living area reverberate with character, and the stunning hill views will hypnotise you. Spend time lazing in a hammock or floating in the walled saltwater pool, sipping long drinks on the terrace, or enjoying private starlit barbecues. Energetic guests will relish the walk to Faugères with its 12th-century windmills or windsurfing on Salagou lake, others may prefer the indulgence of local spa town Lamalou les Bains and browsing the markets. Dine at Abbaye de Villemagne or the Michelin-starred restaurant in Magalas, or eat in and linger around that kitchen table as the sun sets. Serene, simple, splendid.
