About this listing
Our pretty house is a place to relax! Situated in a popular and friendly village with everything you need, it comfortably fits two with space over three floors and a gorgeous view of the medieval village church. Offer - no cleaning fee!
The house is full of character, being built in stone over 300 years ago. The upper floors enjoy great views of the church: the middle floor is a kitchen/diner with everything you need, while the top floor is a double bedroom which keeps cool thanks to shutters and our location on the shady side of the street! On the ground floor there is a utility area, bathroom and shower room.
The house is a holiday home, and guests have exclusive access to all facilities.
Interaction with Guests
We live in the UK, so will interact with you only remotely! The house is maintained by an English couple living on the same street, who will always be available if you have any questions or need help.
Neffies is a beautiful and vibrant village with a medieval centre (where the house is found), but the facilities are right up to date - L'Excampette, a bistro with an excellent modern French menu, free wifi and live music; Le Very'Table, a very popular modern French restaurant, a local shop and an artisan bakery/patisserie. Lose yourself in the meandering streets of the old town or go walking in search of wild herbs, flowers and the ruined Roman chapel!
Free, on-street parking is available directly opposite the house. There is a bus twice a day to the artistic town of Pezenas for shopping and sightseeing and onward connections.
Other Things to Note
There are tiled stairs between each floor, please use the handrails. There are sensor lights on the stairs for when it is dark.
We trust that guests will respect the charming local neighbourhood - and the house of course! Sorry we can't cater for additional guests or pets, and the house is non-smoking.
Small typical house in a village full of charm and very quiet
We stayed 5 days and we liked visiting the local country
L'accueil dans la maison de Ruth est parfait: pratique, rapide, efficace.
À l'intérieur, réparti sur trois étages: tout ce qu'il faut pour cuisiner, lire et dormir, et la vue depuis le dernier étage est belle, assurément; à l'extérieur: un très joli petit village posé sur une colline, avec épicerie, bon restaurant doté d'une terrasse, boulangerie avec pain savoureux et journal local! Un endroit idéal noyé dans les vignes et les routes sinueuses - et la mer n'est pas loin.
We had a great stay stay in Neffies . The house had everything we needed , was clean and well planned for its size. The area is packed with history and culture . The sea is only 30 mins drive and our time was pleasantly full during our stay. Ruth sendt a very informative introduction to the leasure activities in the area . Absolutly recommended
Loved everything about Ruth's place - a little home away from home! It was so nice to be able to cook for ourselves after a month of travelling. The kitchen was equipped with all the essentials and the home is beautiful.
Neffies was a great base to explore surrounding towns of Pezenas, Fontes, Carcassonne, etc, and the town itself is quiet and lovely. We went to a dinner on Saturday night in the town hall with about 80 locals and found it really welcoming.
The markets in Pezenas on Saturday are the best for fresh food, crafts, etc.
Ruth's recommendations were spot on. Food at L'Escampette was delicious and the bar staff were great fun for a chat.
There is no wifi, but that's no worries - embrace it! (And if you really need it, go to L'Escampette).
We spent a beautiful weekend in this lovely little village that made us forget about work and stress at home. That was exactly what we were looking for when we booked Ruths townhouse. We found a homly place that offered everything we needed to spend a great time. Neffies and its surroundings has plenty to offer! Winetastings, long walks through the landscape of vineyards, the beach is only 40 minutes away and the villages in the area are all worth visiting too! It was good for us having a rental car. Before our arrival Ruth has provided us with many Information regarding the house, Neffies and good recommendations for the area. The key delivery and the whole organsation was without any problems. Thank you Ruth!
We had a lovely time in Neffies and loved staying in this pretty three storey townhouse!
We will never forget picking up fresh bread and pastries from the local patisserie, just a short walk away, and enjoying breakfast on the second level with the double windows open overlooking the picturesque village.
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful village. Its a perfect location for seeing an amazing part of France. Only half an hour to either beach or amazing national park landscapes (and fantastic red wine). I must also just add that the auberge de presbytere is only 15 minutes drive and is a must for an unforgettable meal. We highly recommend Ruth's house its full of charm and character with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The house has a great traditional french homely feel and is obviously well loved. Great communication by Ruth too and was very helpful and efficient.
About the Host, Ruth
My husband and I bought our house in Neffies as the ultimate bolt-hole, we love escaping to the sunny South of France to relax, eat amazing food and explore the local area. We love travelling around the world, but a booking a flight to Neffies is one of our favourite activities!
At home in the UK we enjoy making the most of the Manchester music scene and love finding a new restaurant to try out.
