This well renovated modern style town villa is close to the centre of Pézenas and provides spacious accommodation for family groups. This large villa has a small party rate, or a separate studio apartment can accommodate an extra four guests making it suitable for multi-generational groups. There is a boulangerie and grocer's within a 2 minute walk and the long sandy Mediterranean beaches can also be easily accessed (26 min drive) making Little Avalon an excellent holiday villa choice. 

Pézenas has all the charm and authenticity you would expect from a medieval town in the Languedoc. Its narrow streets are lined with stone arched boutiques and corner cafés serving coffees and enticing pastries to excite your palate. Little Avalon is a contemporary single storey villa on the edge of the town in a residential area. Walking into Pézenas centre is possible and takes about 15 minutes. Closer still are a couple of restaurants, a pizzeria as well as grocer's for provisions, making this a very accessible location.

Once inside the gated entrance, your little holiday haven opens up, with pretty established gardens, private pool area and terraces that provide various spots for relaxation with a good book. Interiors are light and muted throughout and the facilities are modern. The kitchen is undoubtedly the hub of the villa, leading to a spacious living/dining area with comfortable seating and sliding doors that permit the outside in when required. All bedrooms are on the same level, some with access straight to the garden whilst the separate annexe with two bedrooms and a shower room provides flexibility for larger groups of up to twelve.

You will see from the map that Little Avalon's location provides quick access to main roads for day trips to beach resorts such as Marseillan-Plage (24km) or the ancient port city of Agde (18km), founded by the Greeks and renowned for its seductive diversity and culture. Head north to Montpellier (45 mins) or south to Perpignan and Carcassonne (1hr 10 mins drive each); the motorway links from Pézenas offer a tremendous choice of touring destinations. Beach, city or retreat to the hills - take your pick from Little Avalon.

  • Please note that there is a local tourist tax to pay: £2.45 per night for guests aged 18 and over.

Location of Little Avalon


Great Things to Do Near Little Avalon

Discover Pézenas

Take a leisurely stroll around your local town, an utterly charming place with much of historic interest, and a lovely atmosphere thanks in part to its antiques and arty shops. Stop for a drink or lunch in one of the many cafés and restaurants.

Market day

Every Saturday morning, local traders set up their stalls in Pézenas for the large weekly market, a riot of colour and activity. Browse the wares, taste some regional specialities, and buy fresh produce for your meals back at the villa.

Walking and cycling

Bike hire is available in Pézenas and there is plenty of opportunity for cycling as well as walking in the surrounding countryside, which is characterised by rows of vines. Families will find easy-going routes suitable for all ages alongside the Canal du Midi.

Get to know Molière

Pézenas has a special connection to the playwright, Molière, who spent time here with his travelling theatre company. A festival celebrating his works is held every year in June. You will come across various mentions of Molière around the town, including his famous armchair which can be seen in the Vulliod Saint Germain museum.

Taste the local wines

In such a key wine-growing area, it would be almost a crime not to sample some Languedoc wines during your visit! You can even take a vineyard tour to see a little behind the scenes and meet the vintners.

Game set match!

There are tennis courts in Pézenas. Don't forget to bring your racquets with you!

Day at the beach

With its 6km of fine sand, family-friendly Marseillan-Plage can be reached within half an hour. Just along the coast, Agde is a pretty town and popular seaside resort with several beaches, and also a large water park which might be a draw especially for the younger members of your party!

Visit Narbonne

Take a day trip to this attractive and interesting city which was once a seaport but now lies about 15km inland due to centuries of silt pushing the shoreline out. However, the Canal de la Robine offers a pleasant waterside setting for a stroll. After working up an appetite, the large covered marketplace, Les Halles, is a great place for soaking up the atmosphere whilst sampling some tasty morsels. In the afternoon, take in the sights which include a partially built cathedral, the medieval bishop’s palace with museum and art gallery, and the Horreum, a Roman underground warehouse.

The harbour town of Sète

Head down to Sète, where an authentic fishing village feel prevails. Unusually perched on a narrow strip of land between a large enclosed lagoon and the wide Mediterranean, with a canal between the two passing through the town, there seems to be water everywhere you look! Unsurprisingly therefore it is nicknamed the 'Venice of the Languedoc'. Drawbridges and swing bridges cross the canalways which are lined by colourful buildings, and it is fascinating to watch the comings and goings of the brightly painted boats around the fishing port and the pleasure craft in the marina. Maritime traditions have survived here, and a famous sailing festival is held in April, called Escale à Sète.

A picture postcard walled city

As you approach Carcassonne, the sight of the medieval cité sitting atop its hill guarded by multi-tower ramparts won't fail to inspire. This superbly restored fortified town is a real delight to behold, with its fairytale turrets and cobbled streets full of boutique shops and inviting restaurants. It also has a dramatic history to discover, with stories of siege and tragedy as well as trade and prosperity. For all these reasons, it is deservedly popular, so we recommend getting there early in the day.

Face to face with dinosaurs...

The 'Musée des Dinosaures' near Mèze makes for a fun day out, an 'open air museum' which feels more like an animal sanctuary with different dinosaurs to discover in a natural setting. It is open every afternoon.

If you have a taste for adventure...

Perhaps particularly to keep your older children and teenagers entertained, but anyone with a taste for adventure can head for the Gout d'Aventure activity centre about 12km east of Pézenas. They offer archery sessions, a ‘Go Ape’ style treetop obstacle course with rope bridges etc. and more adventurous sports such as canyoning, canoeing, rafting, mountain biking, via ferrata, climbing and caving.

Amusements and theme parks

At Marseillan-Plage there are several attractions on the same site, including Pirateland water park, mini-golf, go-karting, a paintball and laser game centre, and an evening amusement park with funfair rides.


Teeing off

Keen golfers can try the 18 hole course at Golf Saint Thomas near Béziers, or the 27 holes at Cap d’Agde.


Water sports

... can be enjoyed on the coast at Cap d'Agde (sailing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, stand-up paddling, canoeing, kayaking, jet-skiing and rubber ring tow rides) or on the lake at Marseillan (canoeing & kayaking, boat hire).


The Etang du Bagnas is a small but lovely lake nature reserve which is good for birdwatching. There are limited routes accessible on foot or by bike through the reserve, or you can stop at the viewpoint just outside of Marseillan Ville.


In and around St Guilhem le Désert

The medieval town of St Guilhem le Désert is well worth a visit for its lovely setting, its Romanesque abbey and its ruined castle. And in nearby St Jean de Fos, you can visit the Argileum (a pottery museum) and La Grotte de la Clamouse - either take a guided tour through the caves to see the superb stalacmites and stalagtites, or explore via zip lines and tightropes!
