How to get to to La Vieille Tuilerie or Le Chalet Secret
Here are some driving directions to get to our beautiful little traditional Languedocien village, Espondeilhan. The village lies about 30 mins from Béziers Airport, 15 minutes from Béziers itself and 10 minutes from the Servian exit of the A75. We are under an hour from four other international airports, all a short drive on the A9 motorway from either east or west, towards Béziers (‘La Languedocienne‘ – yes, they name their motorways over here!) so you have lots of flight route choices to get to us.
Two main routes
There are two routes that your satnav or maps app will propose – each one is about the same in time and distance.
I usually come through Béziers (on the A612) and then up the D909 (the road to Bédarieux), turning right towards Roujan (we are two villages on from this turning – Lieuran-lès-Béziers then Espondeilhan) as it feels zippier, but if it’s early in the morning or around tea-time, the traffic will be heavier so you may want to choose the A75 route (signposted from Béziers Airport and the A9).
Whether you are coming from an airport and heading up the A75 to the exit, or driving to La Vieille Tuilerie and have taken the A75 from the north, come off at the Montblanc/Servian exit. Then head into Servian and right through the village on the ‘Grand’ Rue’ (which is anything but!). Turn left down the hill, following the signs to Espondeilhan, past the Crédit Agricole bank (with cashpoint, for reference) and out of the village. We are the next village. When you reach Espondeilhan, about 500m into the village you’ll reach a crossroads. Turn right here (follow the signs for Pouzolles) – this is our road. You’ll have our exact address on your Booking Form.
La Vieille Tuilerie has secure parking for up to 4 cars, Le Chalet Secret has secure parking for two cars. Both properties are secured by fob-controlled electric gates.
