This is your property ?


Our holiday home is a village house for up to six people in St Genies de Fontedit, Herault, Languedoc, South of France. Situated 15 minutes' drive from Beziers, and 25 minutes from the Mediterranean Sea, it is ideally situated for a wonderful French holiday.

If you want a mountain holiday, we're not far from the Espinouse and Caroux mountains (visible from the sun terrace), and for cyclists, you have a choice of flat and steep terrain. There are vineyards everywhere you look and the area is steeped in history and culture.

Nearby is Lamalou-les-Bains with its hot spas, golf and casino. Anglers can choose from the Herault and Orb rivers, and the house is convenient for the famous Canal du Midi.

The village of St Genies is ideal for holidaymakers. There is a baker, a butcher, a minimarket, a tabac, a post office, hairdressers, church, chapel and a cafe. Everything you need for an authentic French holiday. And if you don't like to feel isolated, just outside the village is a large Intermarché for all your needs.

Location & area

St Genies de Fontedit is nestled amongst the vineyards of the southern department of Herault. Part of the Languedoc region, it enjoys fine weather for much of the year. Situated 15 minutes from the mountains, 15 minutes from Beziers and 25 minutes from the coastal resorts of the Mediterranean, it offers everything you need from a holiday in the sunny South of France.

About 4km from the main road, it is quiet, yet easily reached, and has a life all of its own. The "Grand Cafe" in the middle of the village with its beautiful mural, is a perfect place to watch the world go by. Also in the centre of the village, on the way to the ancient church, is the "Frog Fountain".

There are numerous shops right here in St Genies, so you don't have to travel far to get what you need. We have a butcher, a baker (no candlestick maker!), a grocer, a hairdresser, a florist, a cafe, a tabac, a post office, a wine co-operative, a mairie (town hall) and a school. This all gives the place a buzz without making it too lively. If you need a supermarket, there's an Intermarche just down the road on the little trading estate. Here too is a pizzeria, a bell museum and a wine cave (free tasting available!). It's really pleasant to just stroll around the quiet streets of the village, and admire the different styles of architecture on display.

If you fancy a walk around St Genies, you could walk up to the 14th century disused windmill and admire the views of vineyards and mountains to the north. Then walk along past the olive groves and down past the new villas. Then amble out to the Chapel of Saint Fulcran with its ornate altar, set in a small wood. Let the kids play on the seesaw and the slide while you sit listening to the crickets and enjoy yet more views.

Lively in the off-season, off the beaten track in the summer, St Genies de Fontedit is a great centre for your holiday in the South of France. And with its peaceful position in the ancient quarter, La Maison Jaune is the perfect choice!
