St Ferreol offers you an excellent choice of gites. We decided to choose Villa Laurier as it offered us space and a good arrangement of living area and bedrooms for a family, including grandma and grandad. The decor is traditionally French and provides excellent cooking facilities both inside and out. On those warm evenings what better than a BBQ in your own private garden. The access to the woodland walks provides the welcome escape from the sun and a walk around the surrounding vineyards is wonderful.
From the time you arrive, your hosts are most friendly and helpful. Jorje's knowledge of wine will leave you eager to learn and sample more! For children there is the swimming pool, wendy house, trampoline and swings.
For the adults, sun loungers by the pool or a tour of the old wine cellars under the main house where the wine is lovingly made by Jorje. Once out of the main property the little French villages are easily accessible as is the town of Pezenas, a must to visit. If you decide to explore the Languedoc area there are lots of restaurants and cafes to choose from, as well as the lovely country countryside to explore. Meze, the nearest village by the sea, is only 30 minutes drive away and offered a wonderful choice of cafes and restaurants as well as 'sea and sand' for the children.
We are sure that like us, one visit to St Ferreol will not be enough and you will want to return for another visit and another visit !
We stayed in July and what a wonderful location it was ideally suited for a family holiday. The accommodation is presented to a high standard and the interior décor is tastefully done. The living area, kitchen and bedrooms are large and airy and benefit from some wonderful views over the property gardens and surrounding vineyards. We were made most welcome on our arrival and loved the complimentary basket of goodies that was provided for us including a bottle of the estate wine!
The grounds are spacious and children can play freely and safely. A trampoline, wendy house, swings and a table tennis table are all provided which the children can use. The swimming pool was very welcoming with lounge chairs and parasols for guests to use as well as an array of inflatables for the children to play with. The grounds have a lovely shaded wooded area with walkways which are wonderful to walk around on a hot day and cool down. Go outside the main gate and you can walk among the vines and see the different variety of grapes growing – names that you normally only see on a wine bottle. Ask Jorje a question about wine and he will enthusiastically and knowledgeably tell you all about wine. We were also given a tour of the old cellars underneath the house where the wine is made. Amazing!
The surrounding area has lots of little villages with many local restaurants serving a variety of local sea food and the beach is less than half an hour away by car. Pezenas is a short distance away with many quaint little shops set amongst cobbled streets. We had a wonderful and thoroughly relaxing holiday and would highly recommend the venue again. We will definitely be returning!
