The spaciousness, modern ammenities and great location were real pluses of Louise's apartment. We felt very comfortable here and found the kitchen easy to use and the bed comfortable. Like other reviewers it was the rooftop terrace that was so enjoyable especially with its own kitchen, crickey etc. Great for brunches . The bonus of the garage space quite near to the apartment was certainly appreciated. This is a stylish Airbnb that won't disappoint. Thanks to Patty for the early arrival help too.

Thank you so much for your lovely review and for mentioning the aspects that you appreciated most. We're lucky with the roof terrace; and we're so pleased our guests feel the same! Glad the warm weather held out for you both. You'll be welcome back if you come this way again.

We had a fantastic stay in Pezenas, the house was as amazing as the pictures show and family dinners up on the terrace in the warm evenings are things we will never forget. Our whole trip to Europe was based around this house and it did not disappoint, it had so much history and was so cosy and inviting we did not want to leave. The market is a must, we stocked the house with amazing fresh local produce and feasted for a week! Louise was fantastic with all her advice and communication and Patou was lovely and gave us a lot of history of the house as well as showing us where everything was. Overall a brilliant Airbnb experience and very highly recommended.

After a long flight from the States, it was truly heaven to arrive at Porte 22. Louise has created a beautiful, calm, and comfortable space for her guests. We were soon enjoying our first sip of wine (Rosé of course) on the terrace at the top of the house, soaking up the Languedoc sun. The deck is a special treat and we felt so lucky to share Louise's slice of paradise in Pézenas! Louise has simply thought of everything that you could ever need while staying at her place. Beach towels? Check. Pique-Nique basket? Check. Bikes for riding the back roads through the country side? Check! We're huge fans and we'll be back.

This is a beautiful apartment, complete with everything you might possibly need for a stay in the enchanting town of Pézenas. We stayed as a group of 4 for 6 nights, and would have been comfortable for much longer. The terrace is every bit as wonderful as described, and was comfortable even on hot days--although we were grateful to sleep in the air conditioning.

Our experience in pezenas was a beautiful one. Patty was full of information, was timely and friendly. The welcome basket was extra nice. Your home was a step back into time but with all the upgrades and comfort that we loved. The terrace was our favorite place to have an afternoon cocktail and enjoy the sun and just relax. I couldn't wait to go have coffee in the town square and next door we would buy a fresh baguette and a fabulous pastry. A lot to see and do around pezenas so I would say it was perfect.

Our stay in Pezanes as Louise's home was one of the best of our 100 aribnb stays throughout Europe. We were met at the bus station by Louises good friend Patty who shared local culture with us on the drive and then showed us the apartment and went over the city maps and recommendations for local restaurants and activities. There was a gift basket filled with local specialties, fresh bread and a bottle of Rose. You could not ask for a better welcome! The apartment itself is wonderful It was warm and welcoming and so comfortable. It was even better than the pictures! You get a real sense of what a home was like 350 years ago, but with all the modern conveniences of today. The kitchen was amazing, I went to the huge Saturday market and stocked up on ingredients, but a large Carrefour is a ten minute walk away for anything else you might need, so you can cook to your heart's delight. We hope you find this home and this historic village as you explore the south of France. It is worth any detour!

When we first made this booking I didn't know Pezenas from Penzance. But we arrived to an astonishingly beautiful little apartment, fully equipped with modern & upscale kitchen & bathroom fixtures amidst tasteful and elegant furnishings located In an amazing little French vilage. Although we were fuzzy on our arrival time, Clemence promptly arrived and cheerfully oriented us to our new home. One of the value added options was "Cooking with Fanette"; the cooking was fun, but the real value was touring the village and checking out the best butchers, bakers & vegetable stands, all while being regaled by her relentless charm & wit. The absolutely extraordinary thing about Porte 22 is stepping out to antique shoppes, patisseries, boucheries, restaurants, brasseries & green grocers right outside the front door. Everybody has their own version of paradise. Mine is Porte 22.

Response from Louise:
Wow, your generous praise leaves us speechless! During your short stay you have captured all that we hope to offer, both inside and outside Porte 22. Cooking (and touring the town) with Fanette is an opportunity not to be missed and you did very well to priortise that activity on your second day. Fanette has lived and worked for over 20 years in Pezenas; she's a local celebrity! Did she mention that she learned her english from the actual Monty Python gang during her adventurous London years? Porte 22 is honoured to share her talent, skills, and charm with you. Looking forward to welcoming you back to your new found paradise anytime.

France, especially southern France with all its beauty and wonderful climate is our absolute favourite place to be.

We love to be in Pezenas year around and to explore the region on foot, bike, skis, car, and train.

We are delighted to share this passion through our rental accommodation at "Porte 22", which we have created exclusively for your holiday stay.

We joined Airbnb in August 2014 and we love their concept of facilitating holiday home experiences with a home owner's personal touch, and to give you the guests a chance to experience our town as a local.

Profitez-en tous!
