The house is on the outskirts of the unspoilt little village of Puissalicon, one of the region's "circulades", that is a circular village. Puissalicon is clustered around the base of the feudal castle which dates back to the 11th century - there is also a Gothic church built in 1337.
Wine production is the main economic activity and Puissalicon produces first-class wines, one of the caves in the village supplies wine for Gordon Ramsey.
All basic needs can be met in the village centre, just a stroll away - there is a small village shop,a vegetable market three times a week and a bar where children are welcome.
For more, visit the neighbouring village of Magalas, 3km away, where you will find banks, restaurants and a supermarket.
The historic town of Béziers is only 15km away, while the popular holiday beach resorts at Valras-Plage and Cap d'Agde are easily reached within 45 minutes.
