Clos du Magnolia is situated in a charming, picturesque village less than 20 kms north of Beziers in southern France. Nestled at the foothills of Haut Languedoc Naturel Parc, it's a gateway to fantastic walking and cycling routes, several good golf courses or kayaking on the River Orb. There's also a choice of superb, sandy Mediterranean beaches within a 30 minute drive. The gîte is named after the evergreen tree, Magnolia Grandiflora, which sits in the middle of the garden providing shade, privacy, fragrance and beauty. The full length window of the gîte front door looks out on this magnificent tree under which is a large table for al fresco dining or apero.

Nestled at the foothills of Haut Languedoc Naturel Parc, it's a gateway to fantastic walking and cycling routes, several good golf courses or kayaking on the River Orb. There's also a choice of superb, sandy Mediterranean beaches within a 30 minute drive. The gîte is named after the evergreen tree, Magnolia Grandiflora, which sits in the middle of the garden providing shade, privacy, fragrance and beauty. The full length window of the gîte front door looks out on this magnificent tree under which is a large table for al fresco dining or apero. The gîte is part of an old vignerons house built in early 20th century. It has been fully renovated and, while retaining the characteristics of a traditional French home, it contains modern facilities for a relaxing holiday. There is a lovely 9m x 3m unchlorinated swimming pool available too. We have secure parking for bicycles, motorbikes or kayaks and can give advice on good routes and places to find. Besides the range of outdoor activities, this area is one of France's largest wine-growing areas so there are many opportunities to sample local wines. And naturally, being in France, there's a great variety of restaurants and cafe's as well as local markets to visit. The gîte is self-catering, however, we can also provide a 3 or 4-course French cuisine meal, cooked for you and any guests on request. Many of our guests enjoy having a night off cooking and relaxing in the garden while the work is done for them! Prices depend on the menu selected. The village has a bar/restaurant and a 'depot de pain' for the daily baguette. However, to get the most out of discovering this area it is advisable to have a car or motorbike. We are in a wonderful climate with 300 days of sunshine per year, which means you can have great weather for walking, cycling or golf even in winter. This really is a fantastic year-round destination.More

About the neighborhood
Causses et Veyran is a small village north of Beziers. It is a wine producing village that lies amid the vineyards of the Hérault department in Languedoc-Roussillon. The village is typical of this region of France with old stone houses, colourful shutters and red, terracotta rooftops softened by centuries of hot summer sunshine. The surrounding countryside tells the story of the village and the region. Everywhere you look, you will see hectare upon hectare of vineyards, the origin of the excellent wines of the Saint Chinian label. Causses et Veyran is calm and unpretentious, yet fulfils expectations of a southern French rural village. Totally authentic, many of its houses have stood for centuries and generations of French families have lived here. There's a depot du pain, a grocery store,...
