Lovely place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This holiday home has it all. It is spacious, very well equipped, airconditioned and tastefully decorated. It is the perfect place to enjoy a peaceful village life, and yet the beach and numerous touristic attractions are within short range. We really enjoyed bbq-ing on the roof terrace, watching the sun set. The place is also an excellent starting point for bicycle trips. And guess what: you don't even have to bring your bicycles, because they come with the house and you are free to use them. We really loved it here and would definitely have stayed a couple of weeks longer, if only we had the time!

Timeless charm in the heart of the village

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped into this delightful, traditional French home we knew we were in for a treat. This is an old town house that has been tastefully renovated, preserving original features but providing modern amenities. Our room was on the top floor, accessed by a tiny wooden spiral staircase, opening on to a balcony with the most stunning view over the rooftops to Pic St Loup. St Martin de Londres is beautiful and we really felt part of the village. Loved the square & fountain surrounded by cafe/bar, boulangerie, boucherie, restaurants. Great days out in the surrounding area - St-Guilhem-le-Desert, Nîmes, lovely uncrowded beaches and loads more to do. We'll be back!

Beautiful town house with wonderful views.

  • 4 of 5

This is a gorgeous stone south of france house set in a village setting. The village is excellently equipped with shops, cafes and restaurants and sitting on the terrace watching the perseids metor shower was an absolute highlight. Would recommend.

Lovely house of character in nice French village

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a relaxed holiday in a nice French village this property is the answer. Just a short walk from the village centre this 3 bed, 1 bath property has great character and all the comforts of home.

Lots to do in the area with the coast and the Orb and Herault river valleys close by. Nice walking, cycling, food and wine.
