About this listing
A beautiful gem of an apartment set in the tranquil grounds of La Maison Verte with a large shared garden and pool. Although in the heart of the busy village of Roujan, the Courtyard Apartment lies in another world of peace and calm.
The Courtyard Apartment at La Maison Verte provides you with privacy, tranquility and seclusion, a beautiful courtyard, garden and pool, whilst offering all the benefits of being set in the centre of a busy and lively little village. Five star we are not! But if you want a space to breath out, relax, contemplate the mulberries and olives, and be inspired... you couldn't do better than this perfectly formed apartment.
You have access to our pool, an acre of garden, numerous sunny or shady spots to eat or relax, table tennis, boules and bikes. Plus, of course, we are between the mountains and the sea - you can easily reach both with a car; and we're close to the charming market town of Pezenas.
Interaction with Guests
We live here year round and will be on hand to welcome you, provide you with anything extra you need (within reason!), and offer you advice on how to benefit from the offerings of this region
We love Roujan because you can walk to the two excellent boulangeries; buy fresh goods from the small Thursday market; enjoy the cultural buzz of Pezenas just 10 minutes away; reach the hills or the beach, or the gorges of the Herault, or the many chateaux around here within minutes.
Don't rely too much on public transport. There are two buses a day to Beziers from Roujan, and two buses a day to Pezenas. You will benefit most from a stay with us if you have a car!
We thrive on tranquility, and respect people who respect this.
Entry is after 4pm on the day of arrival, and departure is before 11am on the last day.
No cars are permitted in the Courtyard except for those with a disability.
Smoking is allowed in the Courtyard, but not in the apartment.
No pets are allowed on the premises.
Friendly hosts, charming estate, spacious garden and courtyard, wonderful area to explore apart the beaten tracks.
We have just returned from our 3rd visit to La Maison Verte in 2 yrs because we love staying with Anne & Fran so much. Within 30mins of arriving, Anne invited us to a Rachmaninoff recital she was conducting in the local church. A warm, unique and wonderful welcome for our holidays. This is very typical of how we have found the Maison Verte & why we keep returning. The accommodation is refreshingly simple, clean and comfortable and the gardens are extensive & peaceful, the pool is often empty. Each morning we ate alone under the large walnut tree in the shade but we were also invited to join in with large evening dinners or singing group events. I think Anne and Fran respect the space you need on holiday but are very good at welcoming you into their environment too. This is our favorite holiday destination. Perfect for culture lovers, quiet book readers, singers as well as the tone deaf like us! Roujan is sleepy except for a couple of restaurants and the cool Chat Noir bar. The local hairdresser has an amazing masseuse & therapist. There are lots of outdoor activities which can be done, if you really want. Like swimming in the gorge, or going to the beach, or visiting the many vineyards, or just lazing by the pool. Its also perfect for small children too, very safe and once you are within it's grounds, La Maison Verte is a relaxing & meditative sanctuary.
We had a fantastic holiday in the courtyard apartment of La Maison Verte. Anne and Fran were extremely hospitable and helpful during our stay and had really good recommendations for things to do in the local area.
The apartment had everything we needed and if we wanted any extra cooking utensils we only had to ask. The surroundings of La Maison Verte really are beautiful and the added use of the pool really helped us to cool down and relax. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the apartment to anyone wanting simple, beautiful surroundings and some great conversation.
With so many things in the surrounding area, Roujan is really well positioned (as long as you have a car) and fab for oenophiles!
We had a great time in la maison verte. The apartment was simple but clean and had everything we needed. The premises,garden and pool are beautiful and our hosts were very nice and helpful! Roujan is an excellent spot to explore the Languedoc.
