Or more precisely, rocks, sea and sun. These are the elements that persuaded my wife and I to buy our lovely house in Poilhes. Julia is a geologist and we are both mad about watersports so there is more than enough to keep us busy when we come down to Herault. The Languedoc is home to some of the most fascinating geological sites in the northern hemisphere, with ancient volcanoes at Cap d’Agde and the Montagnes Noires being all that now remain of a massive chain of mountains that were once comparable to the Himalayas.
This is a spacious, airy house with a good-sized pool, Sky TV, WiFi, decent furnishings and a good kitchen; these all go to make this a great place to spend one's holiday. Poilhes offers some excellent bars and restaurants and the growing tourist trade in the local area has encouraged restaurateurs to be more adventurous in their choice of cuisine and ambiance.
We shall continue to enjoy the delights of this amazing corner of France and we welcome you to do so too.
