Our large 2 bedroom home has been lovingly restored and is fully equipped for all you need for a stay in the Languedoc sun. A short drive to the Med or local lakes, Beziers, Pezenas and Montpellier and all that this fantastic region has to offer.

The Space

We are in the centre of the village and steps away from a small range of shops and the village wine co-operative! Our 3 storey village house faces onto the street, where you can sit on the terrace and watch the cyclists go by - or join them for a spin in the rolling hills.

Guest Access

You will have the whole house to yourself and this includes the kitchen and a cosy snug on the 1st floor and a large living room on the top floor. There are 2 superbly appointed bedrooms, with large double beds and plenty of wardrobe space. The cupboards are stocked with essentials such as olive oil, condiments and a range of supplies that you are welcome to use. Normally we take bookings for a minimum of 5 nights however for shorter bookings there would be a cleaning and setup charge of eur80. There is plenty of parking out front or in nearby streets and whilst there are buses from Fontes to Beziers and Pezenas we recommend a car to get around. The garage on the ground floor has easy access to the street and is ideal for storing cycles and riding out into the surrounding countryside.

Interaction with Guests

We have a friendly English speaking couple in the village who will meet you and give you keys. They can also buy in supplies if you are arriving late and can assist you if there are any problems. When you make a booking we will forward you a copy of our House Book, and can answer any queries or give advice about the region before you arrive.

The Neighborhood

Fontes is a working village and we love it for that. You can see first hand the work that goes into local wine and olive production and enjoy the regular fruit and veg, cheese and seafood stalls. You will know they are on when you hear 'allo, allo, allo....' on the tannoy. Pezenas market on a Saturday morning is a must!

Getting around

Bus shelters and timetables are just around the corner..

Other Things to Note

We are happy to negotiate a reduced rate for winter stays or for periods longer than a month. The stairs are not steep and have hand rails but there are 3 flights.

  • What a delightful surprise! This was like "a home away from home". Alison has made sure that this house has everything you need to make it so special. It is a very comfortable and unique place. We loved the bed, the yummy jams, the espresso coffee machine, olive oil, videos...Alison made herself available through (website hidden), even though Gerard and Trudy were always very helpful and around the corner.
    Fontes is a very unique experience, we become neighbors very soon, just by buying our baguette every day across the road. A very peaceful and gracious town, only 100 mts away and we were already in the vineyards. We hired a car from the airport so we were able to go to the beach ( 30 minutes) or the lake (20") or any other beautiful town....and we loved the feeling of coming back "home"! after a day away.
    Thank you very much Alison for this special French experience. A sure highlight in our year long trip!
