Maison des Artists

Laurens, Hérault
Bed & Breakfast

A 200-year-old village house surrounded by vineyards. Light-filled interiors, lots of art, a garden and a pool


2 rooms


Rooms sleep 2 - 3


A village house with thoroughly easy-going owners: artist Derek (you’ll see his water colours on the walls) and designer Wendy (who organises monthly jazz concerts) have knocked down walls to create lots of light and space. Find high ceilings, terracotta tiles and golden beams – plenty of books, sculptures and rugs create a homely, but not cluttered, feel. Bedrooms have the best linen and are soft and fresh; the bathroom has a power shower and white robes. Pay extra for a generous breakfast at one long table, or sleep in and grab something in the village later. Discover the quiet, fecund garden; cool off in the sparkling pool.

Wendy and derick are perfect hosts; available but retiring to give you a perfect stay. They know their france well and can share their thoughts entertainigly. The pool and garden have been put together with care and love. The agricultural traffic at the front can be mostly excluded by the well restored window double glazing. The breakfasts , outside , are great . the house is well named ; enjoy the art

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Maison des Artists, the house is airy and colourful, our room had all we needed, and the pool and garden are delightful, both during the day and night! Wendy and Derek were wonderful hosts, very helpful when needed but also giving their guests space. They were also very obliging enabling our son who was working in France to come and stay for a couple of nights. Breakfast was delicious too. The village is full of character, there is a fantastic, reasonably priced local restaurant with delicious wine. We only wished we could have stayed longer.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Wendy Ogg

  • We are easy going and enjoy guests coming to our house to enjoy all that the South of France has to offer. We have been doing B&B for years. Many guests have come to house hunt and end up buying here in the village!
  • We offer luxury B&B with exclusive use of the pool at all times. Breakfast is optional, there is a pool fridge & BBQ, plates & cutlery provided. We have many ‘chill out’ areas in the garden or at the pool, lovely by day or by candle-light in the evening.e
  • Languedoc is the largest producer of wine in the world. Laurens is a wine producing village situated between mountains & the Mediterranean, in some of the most beautiful scenery in France. Plenty to explore here with amenities a short walk from the house
  • Some of the best beaches in South of France are 18 miles to the South of us. All water sports are catered for and you will find a large range of excellent cafes and seafood restaurants.
  • Activities throughout the year, monthly Jazz concerts in the house& garden, wine tasting, chateau exploring, French markets - Pezenas, Clermont-l’Herault, beaches, golf, canoeing, village fetes, Beziers Feria, horseriding, hill walking, caving & karting.
  • Getting here is easy, lots of cheap flights from UK to Beziers all year, also to Perpignan, Carcassonne, Nimes, Montpellier. All these cities are fabulous to visit. You can also travel on the excellent TGV train from London right down to Beziers.
