Valros - small but thriving

If the twin delights of wine and sunshine appeal to you, perhaps with the addition of a Mediterranean lifestyle, stunning countryside, historic sights and monuments, warm, gentle people and delicious food, then you could do far worse than to take a long look at the village of Valros. Valros, a small but thriving village with amenities, is found in the Hérault department of Languedoc-Roussillon, a beautiful and deeply historic region of southern France. The village is set in tranquil countryside yet close enough to the great cities of Béziers, Montpellier and Carcassonne and the lively resorts along this stretch of the Mediterranean coast to allow for varied and interesting holidays or a perfect new life in the sun.

Well equipped for an easy life

Valros is a fairly small village, but it is well equipped to provide the necessities of everyday life, plus a good number of pleasures and leisure activities. Within the village you can find various small shops, including a general shop, a newsagent's, a tabac (tobacconist), a couple of boulangeries (bakeries) and a boucherie (butcher's), which makes its own take away dishes as an added convenience.

Travelling shops also visit

The village is also visited regularly by travelling fishmongers, oyster sellers and a charcuterie van. In addition there is a fruit and veg. stall selling superbly fresh local produce which can be found most mornings in the main square. Larger shops and supermarkets (as well as a great Saturday street market) are easily accessed in nearby Pezenas.

Wining and dining in Valros

The pleasures of life are provided for too, as Valros has a couple of friendly bars, one of which serves inexpensive local dishes, and the piece de resistance, a superb restaurant (The Auberge de la Tour) which is widely regarded as one of the region's finest. Local wine caves and domains also allow visits and tastings.

Children catered for too

For those for whom a holiday is just not long enough, and who have decided to take up permanent residence in Valros, there is also a village school for the little ones, with free bus services to colleges and lycées nearby for the older children. Historically, Valros is an old village and it is very proud of its own Roman monument, the ruined Roman tower that sits atop a hill gazing down over the village.

Discover Cathar country

There is a saying in the region that "in Cathar country you can never be bored", and it is certainly fair to say that if you are bored it is not for the lack of things to do and see. Anyone who wants to trace the history of this fascinating region will find endless opportunities to do so, with historic cities such as Béziers on the doorstep as well as a host of mediaeval villages and smaller towns.

Enjoy exciting sports or gentler pursuits

The Mediterranean Sea with its lively seaside resorts, fish restaurants and sea sports is just a short drive away, while the adventurous among you can take part in the exciting sports of white water rafting, canyoning and kayaking in the dramatic gorges that lie in inland Languedoc. A gentler waterway is present too, in the shape of the astonishing feat of engineering that is the Canal du Midi, and the flat towpaths are ideal for walking or cycling if you don't want to expend too much energy. Further activities include golf, pony trekking, tennis and the "oh so French" pastime of petanque.

How to get there

You can fly to Béziers, Carcassonne, Montpellier or Perpignan to access Valros. Airlines servicing these airports include Ryanair, easyJet, Bmi Baby and Flybe. Trains will take you to Béziers, but from here it is advisable to hire a car to reach Valros and to discover the rest of the area. The village lies close to the A75 auto route.

Property prices and availability in and around Valros

Property in the Hérault is not really the cheapest in France, as being close to the ever popular Mediterranean tends to keep prices up a little, but it can offer very good value for money bearing in mind all the advantages of the region. Valros is a sought after village, but at the time of writing there are a number of excellent properties on the market for very reasonable and affordable prices.
