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.
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.
Nous sommes arrivés à Neffiès où la remise des clés s'est effectuée sans problème, et nous avons pu profiter de cette charmante maison (et de ses 2 salles de bains!) pendant 6 jours.
Ruth a été très prévenante et nous avait envoyé un mail très complet sur la prise en main de la maison quelques jours avant notre arrivée, et nous avons pu nous mettre à l'aise dès notre arrivée.
Cette maison est parfaite pour un couple, voire avec un bébé (attention aux escaliers pour les plus grands!).
Les restaurants du village nous avaient été recommandés, mais ils n'ont malheureusement jamais pu nous accueillir...y aurait-il une liste d'attente? (lol)
En résumé, excellente expérience que nous renouvellerons avec plaisir.
I didn't actually stay at Neffiès, as it was a place I found for my son & his father to spend time together. They had a wonderful time, & were delighted with the location, & with the house itself. They had all that they needed, & were very comfortable. They went to the local cafe several times, & on several drives around the area, including the Cirque d Moureze, about 20 minutes up the road, which is a little village set amongst stunning rock formations. The drive there has some of the best views in the area. I did visit the house, & found all as seen in the photos & info. Ruth was an absolute pleasure to deal with, quick to respond & very helpful.Neffiès is a perfect location for many historic & tourist sites, & its local baker & grocers shop are a stroll away from the house, with a big supermarket just in the next village. It's a good price for a pretty stone house ! Thanks Ruth.
We fall in love with Neffiés..it's a wonderful village with very nice people.Highly recommended!
Ruth house is a small but very cozy, and it's perfect for a couple! We also enjoyed a lot!
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.
