For buying and selling property in Montbazin

Montbazin - between the Med and Montpellier

If you take the A9 motorway from the beautiful fishing town of Sète on the Mediterranean coast and travel to the Hérault's capital city of Montpellier, you can find, around the mid point of your journey, an unassuming yet deeply historic village of the northern Languedoc. This location makes the village a prefect base for exploring and enjoying this fascinating region, with easy access from the UK being an added bonus.

Laid back village life

Montbazin is a typically southern French village, with warm coloured stone houses with terracotta rooftops silhouetted against a brilliantly blue sky (most of the time at least!), narrow mediaeval streets and a laid back attitude to life. The village offers a number of shops and services, including a tabac, a general store, a bakery, a post office, pharmacy and a doctor's surgery. Further facilities can be found in the nearby towns and villages, with the city of Montpellier easily reached for more sophisticated shopping, sight seeing, dining and other entertainment.

Enjoy Montbazin's fêtes and other cultural events

Montbazin has a lively village fête, and also enjoys putting on art exhibitions and other cultural events. It is also possible to visit the wine estates that surround the village, a great way not just to enjoy tasting and buying this delicious local product, but also a fascinating way to learn about this vital part of the economy and history of the region.

Sights and monuments to see

Montbazin has a long history, and is proud of its resulting patrimony. It lies just to the side of the first Roman road of Gaul, the Via Domitia, which was constructed to link Spain to Italy in 118 BC. Among the sights to enjoy here is the Chapel of Saint Pierre, a 12th century chapel which offers some wonderful religious frescoes and which is considered an important local monument. Also the old streets and houses offer plenty of interest, as do the ancient gateways, the elegant homes of the wealthy wine growers who once occupied this village in some numbers, an impressive belfry and The Colonnade, a line of columns which were created to mark out the plot for Lord Lavergne's chateau.

Visit dynamic Montpellier

Lying between the Med and the city of Montpellier, Montbazin is ideally placed to open up this part of the Languedoc to anyone who wants to discover it. The city of Montpellier is Languedoc's regional capital city, and as such is a "must see". It is dynamic, replete with history yet young and forward looking too, with an important University bringing a perpetually youthful vibe. There is always something going on in Montpellier, and whether your idea of heaven is to trawl its museums and historic sights or to shop 'til you drop and party the night away, Montpellier comes through.

Explore seaside towns and the Etang de Thau

Head in the other direction down the A9 motorway and you will reach the Mediterranean Coast. Here you can find one of the region's most delightful seaside towns, Sète, the lively resort of Cap d'Agde and the inland sea of the Etang de Thau, a charming haven for wildlife and a paradise for lovers of fresh seafood. Just a little further afield you can visit the Cathar cities of Béziers or Carcassonne, or travel inland to enjoy the wild and lovely countryside that encompasses hills, mountains, gorges and the garrigues, the aromatic scrubland that so characterises the Mediterranean hinterlands.

Lots of activities to do, both inland and at the coast

Active types will find there is plenty to do in the area too, with sea sports at the coast, adventure sports such as rafting, canoeing and kayaking on the rivers of the inland areas, golf, horse-riding and walking.

How to get there

Montpellier is the nearest point of arrival from the UK, whether you are travelling by air or by train. Airlines currently servicing this airport are EasyJet and Ryanair. Other airports in the vicinity include Nîmes, Béziers and Carcassonne. Drivers will find the town easily after leaving the A9 auto route.

Montbazin and its environs offer an opportunity to find more reasonably priced property than is possible in either Montpellier or on the Med, yet still having excellent access to both. With property ranging from beautiful wine growers' houses to humble village homes, Montbazin should be of interest to a variety of buyers.
