About Kevin or Ann Quinn

We love living here, so much so that 11 years we came on holiday , fell in love with the villa and stayed. I love the tranquility of the country side that inspired me to write MONOPOEMS my first book of poetry.

Why Kevin or Ann Quinn chose Margon

Our villa is a very spacious bright warm and inviting home. Our clients are pleasantly surprised at how spacious the villa and grounds are.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is nestled close to a historical beautiful chateau and village surrounded by vinyards with many Domains welcoming visitors for tasting.However if you just want to relax by the pool and bbq area or sit in a shady spot to read a book there is ample room for both.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Ann and Kevin.

First of all I'm sorry I haven't gotten around to reviewing our holiday yet. But better late than never.

We had a wonderful time. The house is so nice to live in and we really felt at home there. Kevin was always very kind to help us out if we had any questions or needed any help.

The garden with the pool area was used all The Time due to the very hot weather.

All in all we all enjoyed ourselves so much and we would definitely rent The house again.

We can only recommend others to stay there.



Ann and Kevin, I wish You all The Best, and a very happy New Year.

(Sorry we couldn't get the review request link on homeaway to work)

Best regards,

A wonderful holiday Villa

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time in your Margon Villa. Very nice location and a well kept property. There were 8 in our party and due to the spaciousness we were all very comfortable. The facilities were superb and included an excellent kitchen with American style fridge/freezer, 2 barbecues, a lovely pool, outside fridges, many types of tables and chairs with awnings and excellent gardens with table tennis. Plenty of car parking space too.

We enjoyed various outings and these included Carcasonne, Devils Bridge, a local lake, Pezenas, Canal du Midi (on a boat) and various nearby coastal resorts. We also enjoyed a restaurant in Roujan.

All in all a great holiday with many thanks to Ann and Kevin for their kindness and helpfulness

Best wishes, Ken Perkes

Well maintained, spacious villa.

  • 5 of 5

This is a well maintained,spacious villa. Very clean with abundant towels and bedding. It has all facilities that you are likely to need....washing machine, dryer, coffee machine, Wi-Fi and satellite tv. The garden is wonderful, huge but secure. The pool again is well maintained and secured within a fenced/gated area but also has a garden area within it. Lots of beautiful areas inside and out to sit and eat as a family. Well placed for exploring the area with ease. Kevin and Ann are wonderful and have perfected the art of ensuring you have everything you need without being obtrusive. This was our 3rd visit and are returning again next year. This is a perfect location for a family holiday. Our party was made up of 4 adults and 5 children and there was plenty of space.

Roujan holiday

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the spaciousness of the house and, given how hot it was during our stay, the garden with plenty of spots to sit in the shade was especially welcome. We had three young grandchildren with us who spent time every day in the superb pool where the youngest, who began as a non-swimmer, within two days swam a length of the pool.When not in the pool the table tennis was very popular.The setting is remarkable with the terrace overlooking an expanse of garden with the village and chateau just the other side of a strip of woodland.The gardens are beautifully planted.The attractions of the house and gardens meant that we made limited forays into the surrounding areas but, we have visited the area before and enjoyed going to Pezenas to re-visit it's narrow cobbled streets, cafes and restaurants.

Kevin and Ann were extremely welcoming and helpful which made it altogether an enormously enjoyable stay.

A return visit that did not disappoint

  • 5 of 5

This trip was a first for our family - returning to the same location as the previous year, something we've never done before. The area has so much to offer and we found re-visited some old favourites (Carcassone, Vias Plage, Aigues-Mortes, Pezanas) as well as discovering some new highlights - the ancient town of Minerve and Beziers). The whole family had a wonderful time and the villa was just as good as we remembered. We all enjoyed the wonderful pool again (even my Dad was seen jumping in!) and even with 9 of us in the house there was still plenty of room for us all. Kevin and Ann were on hand to help us settle in and answer any questions during our stay and made us feel more-than-welcome. The property is very much as listed but the scale of the gardens is underplayed and really enables you to feel relaxed. We took some wonderful sunset photos out on the lane at the side of the property with the chateau in view and these will be a fantastic memento of a wonderful stay. We hope to visit again perhaps in a few years as we love this area of France and we love this house!

A property with great character

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a brilliant 2 weeks at this property. The house has bags of character and we especially loved the pool area and the huge plot of land which provided great areas for lazing in the shade in the variety of seating and hammocks provided. The 3 grandchildren loved the pool and table tennis which kept them occupied for hours. A walk to the local village and two nice bars and restaurants that made the kids really welcome. The nearest town Pezenas is a lovely mix of traditional French cobbled streets and shaded bars and restaurants. We all said we would gladly go back.

Beautiful villa in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late, which didn't affect the warm welcome that we received from Kevin! Croissants, wine, beer and soft drinks supplied to sustain us until a trip to the local supermarket was arranged. Kevin even took my husband to the local supermarket.

The villa was as described. Clean, well maintained and spacious. The grounds and pool were as described, also clean, well maintained and spacious. We have 3 children and it was perfect. Lots of space and secure. The pool area was fenced off with a lock on the gate, essential for parents with young children.

The location was wonderful. Secluded but within walking distance to a small local restaurant, which was extremely child friendly. Also only a 5 minute drive to a neighbouring town (Roujan) with more restaurants. We drove to 2 different beaches during our stay, both of which were about 30 minutes drive, both were lovely. We also visited a Dinosaur Park which was a lovely afternoon out. We enjoyed a lot of time around the wonderful pool - complete with shaded play area for toddlers, gazebo to provide respite from the glorious sun and fridge to keep those drinks chilled!

We received an exceptionally high level of customer service. The hot water seemed to have stopped working, one call and Kevin was there to sort it out! We had one visit during the week to maintain the pool. Our hosts also went above and beyond the expected level of service when I mentioned that our flight home was quite late, they allowed us to leave a bit later than would normally be required. The service was exceptional without being intrusive.

I would also like to say the service provided before we arrived was also excellent - providing information on local car hire firms and providing detailed directions to the villa from the airport.

We will definitely be returning next year and would have no qualms in recommending the property as a wonderful holiday destination.
