Tranquil French Escape
In the heart of France’s Languedoc region is this beautiful French B&B, Sanssoucis, a 17th century church turned guest house. Just five rooms, stunning gardens and pool mean whether you choose to hide out in the peaceful walled gardens or zip down to the coast, your stay at Sanssoucis is a true escape.
In the bustling wine-making village of Roujan, this property makes a great base for exploring one of Europe’s most beautiful regions. For some fun in the sun, the Mediterranean coast – as well as the area’s National Park – are both 30 minutes away by car. There are also numerous and superb vineyards within a 30-minute drive, making excellent options for day trips.
If arriving by air, Beziers Airport is a 30-minute drive, and Montpellier Airport is 45 minutes away by car.

Gerad and Johnny run a successful acupuncture practice in London (www.geradkite.com) and bought Sanssoucis in 2014 with the aim of creating a beautiful home and a residential training site for acupuncturists in the autumn and spring and a peaceful retreat in the summer. Gerad has been working as an acupuncturist for over 30 years and is recognised as a master of this healing tradition. Johnny, a former karate champion and stunt man, studied acupuncture with Gerad and now practices and teaches in London and France. They have a strong work hard, play hard attitude to life and love the balance of a busy London practice and the tranqility of Sanssoucis.
