La Rocheuse offers style and authenticity combined with all the modern conveniences required for a relaxing holiday. Nestled against the crook of the Laurenque valley, the house affords unparalleled views over the river Orb and the vineyards beyond. Come and escape the pressures of everyday life, and let yourself be seduced by the ambience and light of this special part of Languedoc. 

To enter La Rocheuse you climb a short flight of stone steps to the covered porch. The front door opens into the living room, which has been carefully furnished and decorated with style and comfort in mind.

The round dining table seats four, and the comfortable sofa and easy chair are perfect for relaxing. The CD player in the living room has a USB port. The antique stone sink has been lovingly preserved and turned into a focal point in the living room.

More about Roquebrun and area

Roquebrun carries the sobriquet 'Le Petit Nice' because of its microclimate. Citrus trees thrive in the village, and each year in February there is a mimosa festival.


In the village are two restaurants and a pizzeria, a bakery, cafe/bar, a grocery store and a tourist office, not forgetting the weekly outdoor market on Fridays. Wine abounds and the Cooperative winery produces some very good wines, which can be tasted before buying. You can also buy wine at all of the independent wineries in and around the village.

Built against a steep hill, the village presents a beautiful picture as you approach. At the top of the hill, near the ruined tower of the mediaeval castle, a Mediterranean garden has been created over the past decade or so, which is well worth a visit. At the foot of the hill the river gushes over a weir which once supplied a mill with water. Today the mill has been turned into a gallery, and on the opposite bank of the river there is a long pebbly beach which is great for a swim. Also in Roquebrun is a Canoe and Kayak base, where trips of varying lengths are being offered.


A little further afield are the villages of Cessenon sur Orb and Saint Chinian. Both are thriving communities with a selection of shops and restaurants. Cessenon market takes place on Saturdays and Saint Chinian has a lively market on Thursdays and Sundays.
