This apartment is located in the grounds of the most prominent mansion of Lagamas village, offering unique views on 19th century architecture and landscape. It is very quiet.

The space

This full of character and very bright flat offers a dining kitchen, one sitting room/large bedroom for up to four guests and a shower room.

Access to the apartment's outdoors is granted.

The double bed (160x200) features a high quality mattress, ideal for a couple. One or two extra single beds can be added, preferably for a family with children. Linen (bed sheets, towels) is included.

Whilst being in the centre of the village, the flat is very quiet*: the windows open on a private walled garden protected from any traffic noise, offering total privacy and unspoilt views.

Featuring some charming details, with traditional tiling, wooden floor in the main room and stone floor in the kitchen, this first floor flat offers the perfect retreat or stop-over to explore the Languedoc region.

I have come here every year since I was born, and have never felt bored! This is truly an inspiring region.

Guest access

You will have access to the flat itself, with its own independent entry and a laundry room.
No amenities or areas to be shared with others.

Interaction with guests

As I am based abroad (unless I reside in the house next door for short periods), most of the interaction takes place via email and phone. It is possible to put you in touch with local contacts (wine makers, guides etc) if you wish so.

Other things to note

Access to the Chateau's outdoors is granted bearing in mind that it is shared with other residents and limited to the court adjacent to the house hosting your apartment to avoid overlapping.

If you wish to benefit the summerly comfort of a veranda, we invite you to look at our adjacent apartment on offer on airbnb under the description 'Tasteful ground floor apartment with garden access'. The 4-guest capacity is the same but with 4 single beds, one of them a side one.

Your booking fee helps us organise non-for-profit artist residencies at Lagamas in collaboration with The Cornelius Foundation... Thank you!

We are incurring incremental difficulties with the internet line. The reason is simple but alas beyond our control: data traffic jam. The telephone equipment installed in the region is unable to cope properly with high speed data transmission and the exponential use of internet. Increasing our subscribed eligible data capacity does not change it: the size of one's engine won't make the car drive faster in a traffic jam...
Thus our sincere apologies in case the wifi is not optimal.

Some guests who sleep with the windows open have commented that the village church's bells are an unexpected feature. Not so much for all local villages around though who cherish that tradition... but one can understand that it may surprise urban ears.

An air conditioning machine is provided for the summer - though let's not forget how locals regulate the heat: curtains closed during the day, windows opened for a few hours after sunset.

The sleeping room has thick curtains. However, it won't provide a pitch dark environment.

My last minute booking with Marianne was wonderful chance. Her quick response time made me feel confident I had a warm and nice place to stay and upon arrival that was indeed the case. The studio is tastefully (if minimally) furnished and the only real surprise was how great the view was from the bedroom window. Lagamas is a great little village that is off the beaten path but easily accessible. It's location is awesome for anyone who likes the Hérault because it is smack dab in the middle of it all! Vineyards, mountains, garrigue and some of the more active petites villages.

This was one of our favorite stays on our trip through France. It is in an Idyllic old French village and the house is just perfect for a few day getaway. Comfortable bed, nice shower, we even used the laundry machine and hung our clothes to dry. The kitchen is really quaint and had everything we needed. The only hitch was the Internet was a bit sketchy but we dispensed with the need to be "connected" for a couple of days which was quite refreshing. Marianne gave us explicit directions and, even though it could be quite complicated to find, her instructions made it easy. Thank you Marianne for an unforgettable stay!

We loved Marianne's flat, and we can't praise her responsiveness highly enough: we asked about a comfortable place to sit, and she put a rocking chair in the flat! We expressed concern about summer heat, and she arranged for a column fan to be waiting for us when we arrived! Marianne also told us about many opportunities to buy fruit (delicious peaches and nectarines), vegetables, eggs, and prize-winning wines directly from local producers. Lagamas itself is very quiet, but there is easy access to a large Intermarché at Gignac, and the A750/E11 is just a few minutes down the road. We were completely satisfied, and we were sorry to leave.

My name is Marianne. I work in the art sector, as a curator, art advisor, trustee and on art-tech startups.

I travel a good deal in Europe and across other continents, where I enjoy meeting new people and discovering new places.

I sometimes use airbnb when travelling and have had such positive experiences that I like to rent my South of France family place when I am away.
