Uitstekende locatie voor stadsbezoek
Deze locatie bevindt zich in het centrum van Pezenas en is dus zeer geschikt voor een bezoekje. De woning was schoon en netjes en ook de wijze van het verkrijgen van de toegang was uitstekend geregeld.

Trés bel appartement bien situé au centre ville de Pézénas
Un très agréable séjour dans un appartement confortable et décoré avec goût. L'appartement est à deux pas du cours Jean Jaurés à proximité de tous les commerces et à l'entrée du centre historique. Idéal pour tout faire à pied. Michael et Marie, sa correspondante sur place sont très sympathiques et aux petits soins. Je reviendrai avec plaisir! Véronique

Fabulous location, gorgeous character apartment
We had a wonderful week in Pezenas in this apartment right in the heart of the old town. The apartment provided everything we might have needed and more. Clean, compact, homey and well appointed. Perfect for 2 or 3. Close to everything, cafes, restaurants, bars, shops, sites. Lots of character in the medieval structure overlooking the beautiful cobbled streets through the shuttered windows. Bathroom is small but very functional and no need for anything more. Loved the provision of the hairdryer and straightener as our luggage was lost and we had nothing! Lots of little touches in this apartment with everything you need to whip up a French feast, or just relax and with a glass of wine and cheese platter! We loved it. Excellent Wi-Fi.

The perfect place
We loved this apartment. Pezanas is a wonderful town full of charm, shops, and history. And this apartment was exceptional, right in the heart of the old quarter. We would definitely stay here again and heartily recommend it.

Comfortable old town charm
This is a great place for staying in the wonderful town of Pezenas. Its well-appointed, warm and comfortable. Ideal for one or two sharing. We used the small room too which is fine at a pinch. Its got everything you need as well as charm and its location inside the old town is ideal

Comfortable flat perfectly situated in the medieval centre of Pézenas
The owner was very helpful with the arrangements and flexible on dates, as we were very last-minute. The booking went very smoothly. The flat was characterful, clean, comfortable, and very well-equipped. There were all sorts of cooking implements, plentiful plates, and things like soap, etc. The beds were firm and comfortable. The living space was lovely, with old wooden shutters opening onto the little cobbled street below. The second bedroom was rather on the small side, but we did not need it. The shower and bathroom were fine, but a little small. Wifi was good. The position was excellent, and away from the noisier centre of the town, although be aware that on two days a week in July there is late-night opening, and we had a musician beneath the window. The accordion player was good, the guitarist less so! We enjoyed the buzz and activity. You can walk round the corner to any of several patisseries to get your morning croissant and paper, and to the Saturday market, or even just to stroll around the many little shops and cafés. It might be an idea to take a plug-in anti-mosquito device in the summer! Be aware that you cannot park next door, although we found parking within 10 minutes walk without too much difficulty after the first day. (Get a map in advance.) The roads are good and we enjoyed a couple of trips out into the beautiful surrounding area. Most of the time, however, we just relaxed in the flat and the town. We had a lovely week there and I would recommend it.

Picture Perfect Pezenas
My wife and I stayed in Pezenas for two weeks and enjoyed the historic town immensely. The apartment was in a great location for access to all we required in Pezenas. It was comfortable and had all that we needed. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils, cutlery and crockery etc but a microwave would have been handy at times. We enjoyed being able to come and go as we pleased without having to walk long distances if we felt like popping out at any time. The English speaking contact, Marie, was very helpful and gave us lots of information when we arrived. We appreciated the cleanliness of Pezenas but sometimes didn't appreciate the early morning noise associated with daily washing of the street and collection of rubbish. This aside we really enjoyed our stay and the relaxed atmosphere evident everywhere we went. We didn't hire a car but managed to become quite experts at using the local bus network. If I had my time again I would probably hire a car for a few days to visit surrounding towns and villages as the roads were quite good. Definitely a wonderful town that is worth a visit and Maison de la Gargoyle a convenient place to stay.

Enjoy the atmosphere
Lovely apartment in this wonderful town. We spent a very nice week, enjoyed the atmosphere of the historical centre with narow streets and many boutiques. The location of the apartment at the edge of the centre allows you to be in the heart of the town and at the same time not to be disturbed by crowds of people. We walked in the streets in the evening, had a dinner in a nice restaurant or visited galeries in the streets. Nocturnes twice a week had a special atmosphere. A lot to do in the region even when the weather is as it was this year. Moreover, you are some 30 mins from a beach and also from Herault valley (canoe and/or bath).
