Nicely restored, this Vigneron's house is spacious & light with high ceilings, two terraces, plenty of character and in a quiet central village location. Faugeres has a cafe / restaurant, a depot de pain for the morning bread, a filling station, wine domaines & good access onto the D909 & via good country roads towards Gabian, Roujan & onto Pezenas.
On ground floor level you have two dry caves; one small & one big, totalling the whole footprint of the house & useful for enormous volumes of storage & used as a laundry room currently, plus a home for the bikes, etc. Entering the house on 1st floor level, via the stone staircase up from the street & onto the verandah / covered terrace, you come into a high celinged, light, bright living room plus a dining area; with open plan American equipped kitchen & 'salon' with plenty of large windows, all double glazed with traditional wooden shutters. There's also a WC on this floor.
Upstairs to the 2nd floor, there are two double bedrooms, with an interconnecting shower room with WC. One bedroom leads out via patio doors to a sunny terrace. On the 3rd floor you have a large bedroom which has been created from the original attic. Again; lovely & bright & with a mezzanine sleeping platform, to create two bedrooms up here if required. There's also an ensuite bathroom with WC (there's a loo on each floor of this house which is always useful!)
The whole house has been nicely restored, retaining as many original features as was possible including exposed beams & tiled staircases. An ideal holiday home or permanent residence in a peaceful, central location, in a beautiful, stone built, medieval village. Excellent value for a really 'up & together' house, with space, light and great volumes of insulation so the interior was really cool on the day I first visited, even though it was 34 degrees centigrade outside. Well worth a visit!

Herault, department number 34, is located in the South of France on the Mediterranean coast and has a fantastic year round climate and is perhaps a well-kept secret. It is famous for its full-bodied red wines and for its oyster beds along the coast in the Bassin de Thau.
Montpellier is the capital of both the Hérault department and the Languedoc- Roussillon region, and is the driving force behind the regional economy with high tech industries in the region. The area has seen a dramatic transformation during the last 50 years. It has a legacy of good housing, pedestrianisation of the town centres and a public transportation network that is second to none.
Béziers is further to the south, renowned for its ancient bridge and Nine Locks of Ensérune. It has a population of 70,000 and is the unofficial capital of the largest wine-producing region in France, with vineyards dominating much of the local landscape. Elsewhere, the town of Sete is the most important fishing port on the French Mediterranean coast and Le Cap d'Agde is the largest purpose built tourist resort in the whole of Europe. It can accommodate up to 100,000 tourists at any one time! It also has 3 of the Most Beautiful Villages of France in Olargues, Minerve and Saint-Guilhelm-le-Désert.
Flying into Hérault couldn't be easier. The 2 airports, Montpellier and Béziers, have flights from numerous European cities. Montpellier airport has flights to, amongst others, Birmingham and London Gatwick, Leeds Bradford, Brussels, Frankfurt (Hahn), and Rotterdam. Beziers flies to London-Luton, Bristol, Southampton, Manchester, Edinburgh, Stockholm, Paris, Oslo, and Düsseldorf.
The fast and comfortable TGV train service links to the north and soon to Spain. The two motorways, the A9 and the A75, run through the region allowing easy access by road to all parts of France.
In terms of French property, Montpellier is the most expensive place in the Hérault. Outside Montpellier, in the rural villages and hamlets further inland and around Beziers, there are still bargain French properties to be found. The Hérault is an increasingly popular place in which to own property due to the fantastic travel links available in the region.
