Domaine de Lavagnac - Chateau de Lavagnac - Lavagnac golf

The Domaine de Lavagnac is being hailed as one of the finest developments in the south of France.

To see a list of property for sale at the Domain de Lavagnac follow this link and simply enter LAV into the reference search box.

Just outside the village of Montagnac (10 mins from Pezenas), Chateau Lavagnac is a fabulously majestic period building nestled in amongst 192 hectares of vineyards, olive groves and pine trees.

Domaine de Lavagnac is going to be the site of a magnificent new golf course designed by Raymond Hearn, one of America’s most highly-regarded architects.

Chateau Lavagnac, known as the Versailles of the Languedoc is going to be turned into a luxury hotel, while a separate clubhouse for the golf course will be built.

The really interesting part of the Domaine de Lavagnac project is that there will also be a residential development ranging from two bedroom houses to five bedroom villas with swimming pool.

Apparently these houses are going to be sold off plan as a leaseback scheme, offering guaranteed investment returns.

The new houses will be built within the existing vineyards and will have views over the Espinouse Mountains and the sea.

Prices are rumoured to be starting at a very reasonable €299,000 for a two bedroom house and will run up to circa €1 million for a five bedroom villa with swimming pool.

I have also heard that there will be a tennis centre and state-of-the-art spa.

In my opinion, a development such as this is exactly what the Herault has been crying out for.

We are already involved with a very interesting leaseback development called Les Jardins de St Benoit, just east of Carcassonne which has been very well received and is selling well, but the thought of having such a wonderful development just 10 mins from Pezenas is truly exciting.

I will keep my ear to the ground and be sure to update this site with information about Domaine de Lavagnac as soon as I have more information.

Wonderful period house with stunning roof terrace

We've just been instructed to sell a fabulously hansome double fronted Maison De Maitre in a charming village less than 10 minutes from Pezenas.
This house is laid out over three floors, has a large garage, at least 7 bedrooms and about the best roof terrace I've ever seen.

Nost people think they need a garden, but when you've seen a roof terrace like this one you won't look back. Ideal for a secondary residence.

we're going round tomorrow morning to take photos and measur up so make sure you check back soon to see the full details.

Bouzigues - A little gem on the water

The small village of Bouzigues is known locally as "Petit Nice" or "Petit Riviera" and once you've visited it you'll understand why.
With more than a handful of restaurants lining the waterfront of the "Etang de Thau" walking along the front in Bouzigues is just like being in your own little part of the Riviera.
Smart restaurants all selling wonderful dishes comprised mainly of local shellfish and freshly caught fish (the sardines are my favourites) are always bustling at lunchtime on a summer's day or on a warm summer evening.
Favoured with people from Montpellier (15-20 mins way by car) Bouzigues is a unique place that is well worth a visit.
If you fancy making a more permanent visit we are currently marketing a wonderful house in Bouziges for 255,000€
