The simplicity of this house is hugely appealing. Built into the hill overlooking harbour and town, it’s an easy-going bolthole with great views and plenty of relaxing space outside: on the decking around the small pool, among the evergreen oaks and pines, on the dining terrace shaded by white sail cloth and in the gently swinging hammock.
It’s a five-minute stroll to a fine restaurant, 15 to the bustle of town (birthplace of Georges Brassens, Paul Valéry and Manitas de Plata). Further afield: vineyards galore, the Canal du Midi, Montpellier only half an hour’s drive.
You’ll find logs and a wood-burning stove for when it gets chilly, all the basics in the kitchen and a Nespresso machine. Get fresh fish straight from the fishermen at the daily Criée, spend evenings on the terrace watching the glittering sea, feel very lucky to be here.
