We always use Trip Advisor when looking for hotel or other accommodation. There was no review for this property but it was in the area we wanted to stay in so we decided to take a chance.
Directions to the property - the owners sent excellent directions to the property. We had no problem finding it.
Accommodation - it was more like stepping into someone's well fitted out French home than some sparsely equipped holiday let. There was even a diswasher and washing machine. There were 2 double bedrooms, and a bedroom with two single beds. Each double room had an excellent beautifully tiled ensuite shower room with toilet and wash basin. There was a further lovely bathroom with shower over the bath.
The kitchen area (on the second floor) was well kitted out and it was easy to move food, etc., out to the terrace as it was on the same level.
The house would be ideal for a family, or two or three couples, as there is adequate space. The house has been built on 3 floors and has tiled spiral staircases which could mean that people with limited mobility may find it difficult to get up or down stairs.
The village - as this is a traditional old French village the streets are often narrow. There was no parking outside the house as the street was so narrow but there was parking just around the corner, less than a minute's walk away. We did not use the 2 local restaurants but we did go to the excellent boulangerie/patisserie on the main street. Just outside the village are 2 supermarkets, one of which is a large Carrefour.
The area - Cazouls-les-Beziers is well located for trips to Carcasonne, Narbonne, Beziers, and Montpellier. Maybe our favourite was Pezenas which was about 20 miles away. Some of the bigger towns and cities were not too easy to navigate around for a first timer to the area. However, there are lots of one way streets to keep the traffic moving so there was little congestion. We also went a few miles north out of Cazouls-les-Beziers to visit the lovely old villages of Cessenon-sur-Orb and Roquebrun. We had lunch one day at Colombiers on the beautiful Canal du Midi.
Beach - we did not visit all of the beaches in the area but of those we did go to we thought the best was at Serignan Plage, which also happens to be the nearest one to Cazouls-les-Beziers. It was about a 35 minute leisurely drive to get there.
Summary - we were well pleased with our choice of property to stay in and also really enjoyed the area around. Both highly recommended.
