Neffies, Herault, Occitanie
L’Olivier is a village house which has recently been modernised to provide light, welcoming spaces inside and out. There remain exposed beams and quirky details. Unusually for a village house we have two lovely outside spaces; a large south facing terrace with great views and a sunny but more protected courtyard, in which lives 'l’Olivier'.

The accommodation comprises two bedrooms, one with a 160 x 200cm king and the other with two singles, which can be configured several ways, including the creation of another king. Both are south facing to the rear and have views to the distant hills. There is a modern shower room/WC adjacent to the bedrooms. There is also a convertible sofa-bed on the landing for occasional use

The kitchen/living/dining area is open plan, has a very fully equipped kitchen with hob, oven, freezer, dishwasher,...

Either we, or our good friend Marie Hélène, will hand you the keys. She is a wealth of local knowledge and very helpful. We may well also be in the village during your stay but are also happy to be contacted by phone wherever we are.

Collapsed on arrival and spent a fortnight at death's door. David and Brenda were splendid. They must have expected happy holiday-makers rather than the sick and miserable, but they were kind, solicitous and helpful throughout the agony. They found an excellent doctor and their internet...More

We had a wonderful stay at L’Olivier. The autumn was a lovely time to visit and the views were superb from the balcony both morning and evening. We had breakfast on the terrace each day – a wonderful place to plan the day’s activities. Neffies...More

About the neighborhood
Neffiés is in the heart of the Languedoc wine producing region. There are at least 6 vignerons in the village and literally hundreds of others within a 20km radius. With lots of new artisan wine-makers, the choice of wines is truly excellent.
The coast is 30 km or about 30mins away, where there are pretty little harbours like Meze, Bouzigues and Marseillan. Bouzigues is the capital of the South's Oyster production and has many excellent sea-food restaurants. The city of Montpellier is an hour away.

Inland the Languedoc National park starts north of the village and offers beautiful walking, white water kayaking etc. We have a local lake for swimming at the Barrage des Olivettes and a much bigger lake, Salagou, about 15 km away.
Getting around
This is a rural village and a car pretty much is essential if you want to explore. We have a boulangerie, epicerie, organic shop, Poste and two restaurants, but for serious shopping there is a large Super U supermarket 3km away in Roujan. Fun shopping is in the beautiful town of Pézenas 12km to the South, which also has a great Saturday market (ditto Clermont l'Hérault on wednesday). Further afield trips to Montpellier, Aigues Mortes, Perpignan, Carcassone and the Pyrenees are easy day trips if you have a car.
