BEACHES, LAKES, AND RIVERS:

The accommodation at Villa Henri and Villa La Siroque, and the Canal du Midi boats and luxury hotel barge, are only about 20 minutes from Languedoc's sandy mediterranean beaches to the south, and the fabulous lakes and rivers to the north.

Wonderful for those of you who love swimming in warm waters!



PEZENAS, THE CANAL DU MIDI, AND THE WHOLE OF THE LANGUEDOC REGION IS VERY WELL-SERVED FOR TRANSPORT LINKS

OUR EUROPEAN LOCATION IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE
We're based in the beautiful Languedoc region of the South of France, where the weather is warm and the life is good. And it's very quick and easy to get here!

I specialise in offering accommodation, waterway vacations, and tours & activities in the Mediterranean area where we live. I also offer canal boat holiday rentals in two other regions of France : Burgundy and the South-West. Finally, we own a penthouse apartment in Budapest, for short city-breaks.

PEZENAS, THE LANGUEDOC REGION, BURGUNDY, AND SOUTH-WEST FRANCE
My rental villas are actually IN the glorious mediaeval town of Pezenas, in the Herault Valley. (Not miles from anywhere!)

The Canal du Midi hire boats, lunch cruises, and the luxury cruising hotel barge are on the Canal, just to the east and west of us.

All my day-trips, events and activities take place within one hour of Pezenas.

PLANES, TRAINS, AND AUTOMOBILES
(HOW TO GET HERE!)

I have split this information into two parts:

1. If you live in Europe - and are booking one of my holiday options without transfers
2. If you are coming long-distance - USA, Australia, etc - and are booking the luxury barge or villa with transfers included.

European   1 - IF YOU LIVE IN EUROPE   European

This section is for you if you're taking the
Rental Villa for Independent Travellers (no transfers, tours, or anything else - just holiday villa rental), or
Self-Drive Canal Boat Rental, or
Pezenas Bed & Breakfast or Self-Catering Accommodation, or
One of my Tours or Courses.

This is general travel advice - if you make a booking I will send you detailed directions to the villas or boats before your arrival.

Below is a list of our nearest airports with cheap inter-European flights to Languedoc and the Canal du Midi area. I will soon be adding airports appropriate for canal boat rental in the Burgundy Region and for South-West France.

These links go to the airports' websites. They show where you can fly from, and which airlines you can use.

Helpful Advice If Clicking on the French Airport Links Below:

Don't try to use the 'Search for flights' systems on French airport websites - most of them don't work! You should go to an airline's own website if you want to search for flights on a particular date.

Coming by car to Pezenas:

The nearest motorways are A9 and A75 (5 mins away). Please see my Pezenas maps page for details.

Coming by train:

The nearest train station is at Beziers (25 mins away), served by the TGV fast trains from Paris which only take 4 hours, as well as trains from places along the coast like Monaco.

Please Note:

If you need more travel advice or assistance than what is shown above, I can offer my Languedoc Travel & Support Service.

American   2 - IF YOU'RE COMING FROM A LONG DISTANCE   Australians and New Zealanders

This section is for you if you're taking the
European Villa Vacation Option, or
Luxury Canal du Midi River Barge Cruise.

You will probably be flying into Paris Charles de Gaulle airport (CDG). From there you have 2 main options :

1. Catch the connecting flight from CDG to Montpellier (1.5 hours) or
2. Take the TGV express train from CDG to Montpellier or Beziers (4 hours).

Your vacation cost includes being picked up at Montpellier or another local airport or train station and being taken to the villa or to the barge. You will also be taken back at the end of your vacation, included in your vacation cost.

DON'T FORGET: I can also help you with a hotel stopover in Paris if you want, and/or a boutique hotel in our local area, and/or a week at your own private rental villa in mediaeval Pezenas, if you want to extend your vacation! If your needs are EU-wide rather than being about the local area, then I have a special 'Concierge' service just for you!

If you make a booking, naturally I will give you more detailed advice and assistance!
