An effortlessly charming and extremely comfortable property in the picture postcard village of Pouzolles, a short drive from the stunning medieval market town of Pezenas and the Med. Surrounded by some excellent vineyards - the best of which is right in the village - I have enjoyed more than a few lazy and restorative weeks in the Maison de Maitre, and at various times of year, between the seasons of bright green vines and the grape harvest. Sitting in the shade of the garden enjoying a glass of local Sauvignon with a plate of Bouzigues oysters (before plunging into the sparkling pool) is truly my happy place. La douce France, c’est là!
We hadn't been to this part of France before, and loved its highways and byways lined with trees, the great brocante shopping, and the bustling market towns. We also swam in a reservoir and had lunch high up on the hill overlooking the plain. The house is really large, plenty of room for us all, with a lovely light-filled living room, and a garden with (gated) pool, big mature trees for shade, and we loved the bird song bursting forth all around. A lovely restful family vacation!
