About the Host, Louise
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.
