Ryanair to Beziers

That's right. It has finally been confirmed.

From May 15th 2008 Ryanair will be operating a new service between Bristol and Beziers.

That means that the Languedoc region of France is about to become even more accesible than it already is.

Domaine de Lavagnac update

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.

We have just come back from a site visit at Domaine de Lavagnac so thought we would update you all as to what is happening.

Things are changing every day now, and although we have not yet been authorised to release specific details, I can tell you that the site itself is amazing. A wonderful piece of land with a real variety of terrain and vegetation. The Chateau itself is stunning, and quite rightly deserves it's title as the Versailles of the Languedoc.

Plans are still to be finalised, but it's looking like the Chateau will be transformed into a 4 or 5 star hotel with spa facilities, tennis academy and wonderful gardens.

The residential units are being designed by award winning architect Pascale Malet-Seeli who is based at Montpellier and is working closely with the "Batiments de France". This is the French equivalent of English Heritage.

Between them and the developers, the initial drawings that have been discussed are very exciting. These residential units are likely to be set out in various hamlets across the Domaine, with careful attention being paid to distance. Not too remote, but not too crowded either. And not forgetting of course the jewel in the crown.

The 18 hole golf course. The course is being designed by renowned architect Ray Hearne and will offer some wonderful holes that make excellent use of the existing landscape without the need to start carving up the countryside. The developers are working very hard to integrate the golf course rather than create it.

we don't as yet have any fixed price details or release date but we will be sure to keep you updated as soon as there is more info to share."
