Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms and the main bathroom. The master bedroom has a double bed. Bedroom number 2 has two twin beds.
 
Wine and History: Aux Pieds des Vignes sits in the Faugeres wine region, one of the most up and coming Languedoc wine appellations and nearby also are St Chinian and Minervois wine regions. For restaurants there are many including three in nearby Magalas (6 minutes drive) One place close by and worth seeing a panoramic view of the Mediterranean coast from is the Moulins or Windmills in Faugeres and if you go early enough in the day with the sun rising in the east the views of the nearby Pyrenees mountain range are stunning. Also nearby of course are the lakes, rivers, gorges and climbing in the Languedoc National Park. Just over an hours is Carcassone and its walled city. The area is ideal for biking, walking, horse riding, fishing, and of course all those year round festivals and fetes that France is famous for are here in abundance.
Activities and Adventures: Locally the area has lots of attractions, not least the long sandy Mediterranean beaches just 25 minutes away. You can also swim in the river Orb or canoe and white water raft on it at Reals near Murviel, the international canoe centre, also popular for picnics while others enjoy the river. The village of Roquebrun is worth a visit, beautifully located further up river. There are also lots of festivals not least those in Beziers (Festa D’Oc and Feria in August, a very large 5 day street party based on Spanish culture), Pezenas the town of Moliere and with a great Saturday market, Bedarieux with its Monday market and of course a host of winemakers to visit and sample their wines.
Fun for the kids (and parents): Water Park located in Cap d'Agde called Aqualand. Copy and paste this link in your browser to see more. http://www.aqualand.fr/ and click on Cap d'Agde
