About this listing

We invite you to come and enjoy a relaxing holiday in Nizas a tiny, charming and ancient village with a tiny population of 500 to match. The three-bedroom home is a beautifully restored, two-hundred-year-old “maison de village”.

The space

Please note: The photos are 4 years old from when we moved in and the house is now fully furnished (with upgraded beds etc. and an extra 25 square meters of living space that includes a home cinema).

Through a cool, bamboo-lined courtyard, you will find the entrance of the house, which starts with a modern, fully-equipped kitchen and inviting open dining space, and leads onto a smaller courtyard with a summer kitchen (gaz barbecue plancha and regular coal bbq).

The adjacent room (renovated in 2016) hosts a home cinema (55" 4K screen with 5.1 surround sound and hundreds of movies) and reading table. This is the coolest room in the house in the heat of summer with a great couch to nap on when watching the Tour de France (if you can watch a whole stage without falling asleep you'll win a free wine bottle ;)).

Featuring stunning original stone and wooden beam work the first floor boasts a beautiful master bedroom with a king size bed and a spacious, relaxing lounge-room. Equipped with comfortable couches and a large TV, the lounge-room space opens out onto a sunny terrace which can also be accessed from the front courtyard via an external staircase.

Two charming bedrooms, a study area and a modern bathroom (toilets on each of the 3 levels) occupy the second floor. There is a queen size bed in the second bedroom and a very comfortable daybed which can be converted into a double bed in the third.

Featuring a total of 3 bedrooms the house could in theory accommodate up to 6 people but we suggest a maximum of 4 guests for maximum comfort.

Guest access

Whether it be inside or out on the terrace, there is plenty of space for you to relax and be at home. All modern conveniences such as washing machine, dishwasher and microwave are available for use. Fresh towels and linen are provided and there is high-speed wireless internet throughout the house.

Interaction with guests

As much as possible we try to welcome you to the house in person which gives us a chance to answer the questions you may have about the region. We are also available on phone / email during your stay to answer any questions.

Other things to note

Please note that mobile coverage in the village is a little light. Phones from the operator “Free” will have a little reception inside the house (top floor, in the bathroom and office) and “Sosh” or “Orange” mobiles will work from the village main plaza.

Our house is a typical french village house (built in 1818, modernised in 1920, extended in 1990 then completely renovated in 2013 and finally extended in 2016) which means that some of the door frames will be quite low and our top floor has a couple of low hanging wooden beams. If your are particularly tall (180cm+) please be aware that you will have to watch your head while walking on the top floor :)
Also the house is not well suited for toddlers. With 3 staircases and a terrace letting the little ones crawl around could be stressful for the parents.

Pierre and Rachel have such a beautiful house in a charming village in France! It was a true pleasure to stay there - and they really made us feel welcome, by leaving food items in the fridge (since we were traveling to the house very late). They were available by phone for questions (we only had to call once) and had left detailed instructions for all of the kitchen equipment, etc., how to keep the house cool during the hot summer days, basically everything that we needed to know. We felt "at home away from home" ! The house is really beautiful, and comfortable. The decor is very beautiful, and there are lots of places to relax including a very pretty upstairs porch area. We found a lot to do in the surrounding area - running, biking, canoeing, and shopping in Pezenas. Pezenas is only minutes away. The only complaint that I would have is that the biking involved a lot of hills! But our AIr BNB hosts are not responsible for the hills! They left us some great bikes to use, which saved us a lot of money. That was especially appreciated. Pierre and Rachel set such a great example as hosts - staying there gave me a lot of ideas about how to be a better AirBnB host!

Pierre and Rachel were great hosts. Communication was very easy and they made it a great experience. Nizas is a lovely little village and the house was great - spacious and comfortable. It had everything we needed and more. We enjoyed out day riding their bikes along the coast. The Christmas concert in the village was also a highlight. Thanks for having us. We would definitely recommend it. There is lots to see and do in the area.

Our stay at Pierre and Rachel's couldn't have been better! Our hosts were very friendly and went above and beyond to ensure we made the most of our stay. We were able to accompany their randonnée group on a fantastic hike, and they have bikes that we were able to use for a few mountain bike excursions. Pierre was kind enough to show Jeff some of the local trails. Their beautiful home was recently renovated and very comfortable. There was lots of reading material and plenty of games and sports equipment for the kids to enjoy. The town of Pizas is very quaint and has a playground, tennis courts, library, and convenience store. Overall, we would highly recommend their home and can't wait to return to enjoy this lovely part of France.
