Description of the Le Bousquet d'Orb vacation apartment rental
About 65km from Montpelier airport and less than an hour from the Mediterranean beaches (Serignan, Valras, Cap d'Agde, Marseillan, to name a few) this beautiful gite (Holiday let) is ideally placed for a great holiday in the sun!

Situated on the outskirts of a picturesque village in the Haut Languedoc National Park, the visitor is in easy reach of the forests and mountains, gorges and caves, the unspoilt medieval villages of Herault. The historic cities of Beziers, Montpellier, Carcassonne and Pezenas with their cosmopolitan cafes, restaurants and boutiques are all within an easy drive, as are the seafood restaurants in the many pretty villages along this stretch of coast. And if one is really adventurous there is a ferry from the port of Sete that will take you to the Balearics or Morocco.

Location
Le Bousquet d'Orb is a picturesque village nestling in the beautiful Orb valley. It has a quiet, rural atmosphere. Le Bousquet d'Orb, within walking distance of the gite (holiday let), boasts 4 boulangeries, a Credit Agricole (bank), 2 bars, 2 pharmacies, hotel with restaurant, a pizza restaurant (which delivers!) and 2 small supermarkets. For the larger supermarket chains (Intermarche, Super U) the small town of Bedarieux is about 10 minutes away by car.

Activities
For the sport-lover Lac du Salagou is a 20 minute drive away and offers a range of water sports at its brand-new sailing complex.

This is true rambling country with a myriad of well-marked paths through gorgeous countryside. In this region one can also find pony trekking, para gliding, freshwater and sea fishing, rock climbing, bungee jumping, cycling and canoeing. The property is a 5 minute drive away from the picturesque village of Lunas with its outdoor pool and leisure facilities - perfect for a family day out.

The summer season is filled with fetes and festivities, including the famous Feria in Beziers with its bullfighting and flamenco. There are the many colourful markets in which to spend a delightful morning browsing amongst the local produce, which includes such delectables as paella, Cantal cheese, oysters and clams, Lucques olives, rare local salamis, artisanal breads, and more.

This is wine producing country and the visitor can sample the excellent local wines and talk with the producers at the many nearby domains, which include such well known names as Faugeres, St. Chinian and Minervois. Visitors may be pleased to know that the nearest caveau (winery) is just a 5 minute walk away, where they will be pleased to fill a jug with their wine "en vrac" (loose).
