Local area

Les Oleanders is situated on the edge of Jonquières which is a small village in the centre of the famous wine growing region 'Coteaux de Languedoc'.

Montpellier, Beziers and the Mediterranean are within a half hours drive.

Lac Salagou, the river Herault and the famous St Guilhem Le Desert are only 15 minutes away.

The market towns of Clermont l'Herault and Gignac are less than a 10 minute drive and provide excellent shopping facilities including a variety of restaurants.

A baker's van calls daily in the village centre and other commercial vans call during the week.

At St Felix de Lodez (2km) there is a good bakery/patisserie and a high quality butcher.

Pezenas (25 minutes) is renowned as a centre of art and crafts.

Port of Sete (45 minutes) is well known as a fishing port and the birth place of the singer Georges Brassens. Sete boasts many excellent fish restaurants.

Every year Sete is animated by its famous jousting competition on the canal which passes through the town.

La Couvertoirade is a medieval walled city of the Knights Templar.

The Cevennes is the southern part of large mountain plateau which extends from Clermont l'Herault in the south to Clermont Ferrand in the north.

Jonquières is in the Herault valley and the mountain plateau rises majestically up 5km to the north.

Cirque de Navacelles is a spectacular geological curiosity created by the erosion of the limestone rock by the river Vis. During the summer one can dive and swim in the crystal clear waters of the central pool.

La Camargue is in the Bouche du Rhone department and it stretches from La Grande Motte in the west to Arles in the north and the Rhone in the east. It is renowned as a nature reserve and for the rearing of horses and wild cattle. The famous culinary dish "Gardien de Taureau" comes from this area.

Beziers is the second largest town in the Herault.
