Pouzols is the ideal place to stay for long walks through the garrigue and the vineyards, cycling trips alongside the Canal du Midi, or visits to the the Cathar ruins.
The "Rue de l'ancien four" was built sometime in the early 19th century. Mr. Fraisse, a rich wine merchant had a house built for his mistress ... just in front of his his own house - The story does not tell what his wife thought of it!
The elegant fence also dates from that time. The courtyard is a great place to relax with a book or for alfresco dining. One enters through the kitchen which was in 2012. Then comes the first living room with a fireplace. There are also two bedrooms downstairs (one bedroom with no windows but with a comfortable single bed and one bedroom with a double bed). The upper floor has a sunny and pleasant living room with a balcony, a bathroom and the third bedroom (double bed) with a terrace.

About the Host, Marilyne
Born thirty something years ago in the South of France in a small village called Pouzols. French father, Dutch mother. Like most families in the village, my family makes wine.
I moved to the Netherlands in 2001, where I live in Utrecht with my partner Renata. We go back to Pouzols for our holidays, our second home there is listed here.
It is actually the house I grew up in. I love spending time there, but also renting it so others have the opportunity to discover my region.
Buy some Lucques Olives there! They are known as the "Rolls Royce" among olives. There are also guided tours on the production of olives and olive oils, and a souvenir shop.
Our daily swim in the summer, a 10 min ride from Pouzols. There is a small beach, supervision, and a cafe.
Traditional French food, with a modern twist. Menu +/- 20 eur. Same owners as "L'Estagnol", located on the other side of the Robine River. "En face" means "in front of".
Well-known for seefood and fish. It is located next to the covered market. One of the favorite restaurants of local people. Menu for 25/30 EUR.
Canoe. 1 hour ride from Pouzols. Nice scenery. From 1 hour to 2 days, so there's always something for everyone,you don't need to be very sporty. The last group (for 1 hour) goes at 5, so be early!
