The house is located in the charming wine village of Cruzy to the west of Narbonne and Beziers.
A delightful 2 minute walk from the rear of the property brings you to the centre of the village with a market square, baker, butcher, grocer, pharmacy and cafe–tabac.
The village benefits from Le Terminus restaurant which has a large garden area ideal for children and the well-known Auberge de la Croisade on the Canal du Midi.
It is a 10 minute drive to a large Intermarche supermarket in Capestang or the celebrated Sunday market town of St Chinian.
If you tire of the pool nearby Roquebrun offers a safe river adventure for canoeing and swimming or head for one of the many Mediterranean sandy beaches in easy reach such as Gruissan or Valras..
Market in Cruzy square on Tuesday and Friday mornings.
Tennis courts in the village.
Village festival in August.
Superb, child friendly beaches within a 30 minute drive, all with waterside restaurants and cafés.
The lively town of Beziers which is especially vibrant in August for the annual Feria, a 5 day long festival. Perhaps the best flower market in the south of France on Fridays in the beautiful tree-lined main boulevard. Lots of fascinating shops in the little cobbled lanes in the old town.
Lovely walks along the nearby Canal du Midi - this international heritage site links the Atlantic and Mediterranean coast. Beautifully shaded tow-paths ideal for walking or cycling with many cafés and bars dotted along the banks or many opportunities to take a boat ride or rent one of your own.
St Chinian – lively town with super Sunday morning markets, well worth a visit.
Roquebrun (called "Little Nice"), a gorgeous medieval hilltop village with a bathing river. Mediterranean garden to visit right at the top of the village.
Carcassonne – a medieval town with its exceptionally well preserved citadel and walled town only 40 minutes away.
Pezenas – City of Molière with quite exceptional old world charm and architectural heritage. Numerous arts and crafts shops and workships open to the public and a popular extensive Saturday market.
Haut-Languedoc Regional Nature Park consists of gorges, the Lac de Salagou and is a beautiful area only 30 minutes drive away, with its stunning gorges and superb walking, hiking, river rafting, watersports and carp fishing.
Bassin de Thau – a calm inland sea teeming with fish. A breeding place for oysters and shellfish, producing over half the oysters consumed in France. Ideal for windsurfing and sail boarding. Villages, such as Bouzigues and Meze, have many restaurants serving sumptuous platters of fresh shellfish.
Cap D’Agde and Gruissan – these two towns offer everything you might wish from the Mediterranean. Both have fun water parks and offer a range of water sports and sailing opportunities with lovely clean beaches nearby. Other quieter beaches are not far away for those who prefer some privacy.

This area of France is beautiful. For other families coming to stay with young children we wanted particularly recommend a trip to Roquebrun - our children preferred it to the beach - and eating out at Le Provence, Capestang, L'Esplanade ( Pizzeria ) in Puisserguier. We hope you will continue to let this property during summer as we would love to return. Thank you again. "
