La Mouline is situated a scenic ten-minute stroll from Autignac (above), a pretty medieval hill-top village with a cafe, bakery, chemist, 'picerie' and well stocked small supermarket / tabac. The cafe serves take-away pizzas all year round and lunch and evening meals in the summer.
The village is surrounded by vineyards and rolling countryside with the mountains beyond, providing magnificent views and ideal for walking or cycling. Just up the road from the house is a newly-opened horse-riding centre.
A large Intermarch supermarket with cash-machine, garage, bank and restaurants are 5 minutes away by car in Magalas.
The coast is reached via Beziers situated on the beautiful Canal du Midi. The attractive towns of Agde, Marseillan and Sete are an easy drive away as is the historic town of Pezenas with its lively Saturday market.
The nearby river Orb has spectacular scenery for pleasant walks, bathing or kayaking.
The cities of Montpellier and Carcassonne are an hour away and a further hour will take you to Spain, the Pyrenees, Nimes and the impressive Pont du Gard.
