Property Features

About the local area


In the summer months, sleepy Montagnac wakes up a little and from the Bastille day celebrations on the 14th July, a torchlight procession, fireworks and a band there is entertainment every Saturday in the square. On Tuesday nights during the summer there is a Nocturne, evening markets book a table at Le Progres and eat in the square while watching the world go by.

Montagnac is well placed, only 15 minutes drive to the port of Meeze and Marseillan, where you can eat on the waterfront. 15 minutes to amazing roman Pezenas, packed full of craft stalls, antique shops and restaurants. 20 mins to Cleremont-Herault where they have the best market on Wednesday mornings and lots of great restaurants for lunch afterwards. There are many wine Domaines in the area and a very pleasant afternoon can be spent wine tasting and buying. There are plenty of beautiful beaches if you want a change from the pool. The many rivers offer great kayaking for the adventurous among you and there is a good selection of Golf courses. You can also hire boats for the day from Agde and take the kids water skiing or hire a boat on the canal du midi at Beziers. There are beautiful walks through the vineyards on the other side of Montagnac on the Garrigue and you can hire bikes from various local places. So if you can drag yourself away from the pool, there is plenty to do.


Montagnac has three good bakeries, the best is Le Fournil put an order in for your daily croissants, there is also a Spar supermarket, greengrocers, fish shop, butchers and a deli. On Friday mornings there is a small market in the square selling mainly food. For a bigger supermarket go to Pezenas or Meze, this a great thing to do when you get too hot.

There are also lots of galleries, boutiques and craft stalls in the side roads in Pézenas, great for an early evening wander. There are lots of great markets to visit in the area, Pezenas is a Sunday morning, Meze is a Sunday and Clermont-Herault is a Wednesday. These are the best, but get there early to get a good parking spot.


There are dozens of good restaurants to choose from. A short drive to the Domaine Paul Mas just outside Montagnac will reward you with excellent wines to taste and buy and a lovely new restaurant which is worth going to for a treat.

In Montagnac you can eat at the square at Le Progres or Brasserie de Sport during July and August, the set menus are very good value.

Day Trips Everyone loves going to Carcassonne, the best preserved medieval castle in Europe, as seen in Robin Hood , Prince of Thieves (1.30 hrs drive). Inside the ramparts are many gift shops and restaurants. You can do a full tour on foot or in a horse drawn carriage. Children love the steam roundabout.

If you are interested in Roman architecture, there is a very well preserved amphitheatre in Nîmes. They filmed Gladiator there, now they hold concerts there, but it is open for visits. Not far away is the Pont du Gard, an aqueduct which you can walk across, this is spectacular too.

Just down the road on the way to Mèze is the Parc de Dinosaurs. They discovered a large nest of dinosaur eggs here. Ideal for children, this is a shady walk through the trees with real dinosaur exhibits.

Children and teens love the Aqua Park at Cap d’Agde, full of huge and scary water slides. There is an area for small children too. Remember to wear lots of sunscreen as there is no shelter. Opens 10am-7pm. About 45mins drive but the traffic is bad at rush hour (5-6pm).

There is also a Go-Karting track just before Agde.

If you fancy canoeing, there are plenty of rivers in the mountains where you can hire canoes. Roquebrun is about 40 mins drive. There are a variety of different trips available, with varying amounts of rapids. Wear sturdy shoes, they provide lifejackets. Not for the faint hearted or non-swimmers, nor for children under 6.

If you prefer something beautiful, visit one of the mountain grottos. The Grotte de Clamouse is up near the Pont de Diable. It offers a fantastic son et lumière display of stalagmites and stalactites inside the mountain. Wear trainers and a sweat shirt as it’s cold and slippery in there.

We had a brilliant holiday in this lovely villa. We were 3 generations and everyone of us had a great time. The pool is superb and the garden beautifully shaded. The villa is very well equipped and has a huge amount of space. The local people are very friendly and the surrounding towns and villages beautiful. We were surprised to find beaches and ports so close and there were lots of things to do.

The is a wonderful place to stay, three generations of our family all had a superb time, the pool and garden being the highlights. It was great getting a warm welcome on arrival which set the tone of the whole holiday. Highly recommend, and we will return.
