This stunning stone house lies in the heart of one of southern France's most picturesque and historic villages. And it offers stunning views over one of the most scenic areas of southern France.
Where is it?
This property is built on a hillside in Roquebrun (see below), the most sought-after village in the Hérault department in the Occitanie region in southern France.
It's just a short walk away from all amenities including restaurants, bars, and a small grocery shop.

The surrounding area is beautiful and offers a wide range of outdoor sports from canoeing and kayaking to fishing, walking, climbing, golfing, horse riding.
And for wine lovers, there's the opportunity to do a spot of tasting in the area. 
The beaches of the Mediterranean are just 30 minutes away, and the city of Béziers is only 25 minutes away by car or bus.
There’s also the thriving market town of St Chinian just 15 minutes away with a larger supermarket, cafés, banks, and a twice weekly market selling local produce and crafts.
Traveling is also made easy with the Béziers-Cap d'Agde airport just 50 km away.
The airport has an average of two or three flights per week to eight destinations. That includes Düsseldorf, Bristol, London Luton, London Stansted, Manchester, Edinburgh, Paris Beauvais, and Stockholm.
It is also just two hours from Toulouse-Blagnac airport by car which offers a bigger choice of flights around Europe.

How much does it cost?
The property costs €249,000 (reduced from €299,600) or $292,000 or £218,000 depending on exchange rates. 
Describe the property
The two bedroom property has three landings with a bathroom on each floor, and one fully equipped kitchen. That’s a total of 80m2 on a 108m2 plot.
Although the house has been fully renovated – double glazing everywhere, oak doors and chestnut wooden flooring – many original features remain, including the well maintained old tiles.
The property also has a private parking for two cars, and, save the best for last, a decently sized terrace with a stunning view of the River Orb and the countryside.
Why buy it?
Estate agent Leggett Immobilier says: “The property has huge letting potential but is also a great holiday home just for you.
“It is on this gorgeous terrace when you open your bottle of local wine in the evening and look down over the valley, you will feel at home in one of the most scenic areas of southern France. That’s when you know you have finally realised your French dream!”
