Guestbook comments from the owner


We very much enjoyed our vacation in this lovely house. We spend most of our time in the garden enjoying the pool and the barbecue. When we were not in the house we made trips to various places. We were lucky that the Tour de France ended in Nimes at the 15th stage. Our kids of 8, 13 and 15 had a great day and collected a lot of gear from the Commercial cars. The nearby area is very pleasent and the most difficult part is to choose which winery we wanted to visit. It is very nice that this area is not packed with tourist, so you can go see the area with no crowds, but at the same time it is easy to go to Places were a lot of other people go. One evening we went to Cap d'agde for dinner and a visit to the amusement park. It was very Commercial but also a lot of fun, but we were glad to be going back to small and calm St. Genies de Fontadit. The owners are very helpful if you need information before arriving at the house. We would highly recommend this house and we would very much like to come back to explore the area even more.

Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Families with Teenagers

Great holiday in quiet villa

  • 4 of 5

We had a very quiet, pleasant and relaxing holiday at this villa. It was well equipped and we found it clean and well maintained. The description of it was accurate and the owner was very helpful throughout the process, which was reassuring to us, booking outside of an agency for the first time.

The fig and plum trees in the garden were a real hit. We enjoyed the barbeque and eating out on the terrace each night. Also spent alot of our time on the sun patio and in the pool which, was ideal. We found it convenient for the coast, although the beaches around Bezier were busier than ones we'd been to further south. We also visited pretty towns further inland, particularly enjoying Roquebrun. The Stade, 2 minutes walk away, also worked for our teenage boys, playing football.

Others have commented about the flies, and although there were some, citronella candles and fly spray minimised them. We did have an issue with mosquitos part way through following a rain storm, and I'd recommend that you have repellent/body spray handy as a precaution.

All in all a great holiday and we were sad to leave.
