We're in the wonderful Languedoc region of the South of France. The weather is warm, life is good, and one-third of all French wine is made here!

Thanks to EU investment in great new transport links in recent years, Languedoc is "the new Cote d'Azur" - it's less crowded, less expensive, it's unspoilt, but it's just as beautiful.

"Mike and I have had such an authentic French experience staying at Villa Henri, and we so appreciate everything.

This has been the perfect experience, from when we first booked until today - our last day.

The recommendations you gave for some out-of-the-way spots to visit were fantastic. We truly enjoyed exploring the Languedoc on our own time schedule. And it was great to come back at the end of the day and make ourselves at home!"

- Amy and Mike,
Washington DC, USA



"The Canal du Midi cruise was fantastic! Everything went perfectly.

Magnificent food etc. Lots of happiness and laughter!!

Oh, yes, you did a fantastic job in arranging our tour!"

- Lyndal, Carol and group, NSW, Australia


"Travelling down the Canal du Midi with my daughters has been an epicurean delight.

A bounty of scenic beauty and a time that will always be remembered. We thank you for sharing your generosity of person and home."

- Ilene, Baltimore, USA


"We're delighted we chose Villa Henri - fabulous location and you have a wonderful gite.

For us it was perfect in every way and we had a great holiday!

We loved the area and it was also a good feeling coming back each day to a swim in the pool and a nice glass of the local wine on the terrace. Feel free to use this testimonial on your website!‎"

- Jon and Lalita, UK
