Magnificent villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely large villa. The architect clearly understands the summer climate in Languedoc. The outdoor area is always sunny and completely protected from the often strong prevailing wind. The pool is AMAZING! Absolutely huge and very deep, and heated to perfection. We were a party of 11 swimming nearly all day and night for two weeks, and it stayed crystal clear.

There is a large traditional barbecue and a great gas barbecue, which we used nearly every day. The house has four bedrooms downstairs and one upstairs. The sixth bedroom is actually a bathroom, and can't be used for sleeping as it has a huge skylight. Great for a bathroom and dreadful for a bedroom. We put the bed in the upstairs living room which was fine, so everyone had a bed.

The beds (which are now normal beds), sofas and outdoor furniture appear to be new and were excellent. 2 huge umbrellas give plenty of shade if required, a third one was broken.

There are two distinct outdoor eating areas, both protected from weather. This is great. The adults used one and we sent the kids to the other. The neighbours houses are some distance away, so we felt comfortable making a bit of noise, the kids could play loud games without annoying anyone. There are three separate outdoor seating areas so there is somewhere nice at any time of day. The view from the back of the house is lovely.

The house manager is just a few minutes away and was very helpful. We couldn't get the tele to work and he came and sorted it immediately. His English is perfectly fluent.

The issues raised in an earlier review all seem to have been resolved.

Recommended for two families.

Great Location, Very Welcoming. Very relaxing....

  • 5 of 5

We had a few issues with regards to booking, but the owner was very good in helping us get everything sorted.

We arrived Saturday at a time that suited us, with a nice bottle of wine left for us

The property was clean and well stocked with all the items you need for a comfortable stay.

The property outside is perfect, lots of space, nice pool and heated also. So perfect for the children.

Christopher even came around with some tomatoes and melons from his garden to make our stay even better.

On reading the other review, it does look like everything has been painted and sorted. We found nothing wrong with the villa at all. Even the outside furniture looked new.

So i would not worry about any of that.

We will book again.

COULD be Idyllic

  • 3 of 5

Top 10

-Good seating areas

-Big pool 10m by 5m heated

-Diving board

-Table tennis

- plenty of Hot water

-Parasols

-BBQ with gas supplied or coal option

-Gated pool with removable sections not shown in photos

-Outside space Grounds

-2 fridges

-Second upstairs seating area (sofas)

-Good location cute village and canal. 30minutes from narbonne beech. 1hour 30mins from Montpellier airport

Bad 10

- 2 queen sized Waterbeds uncomfortable and noisey.

-Paper thin upstairs flooring and walls. Could hear conversations clearly, footsteps and every movement on the water bed.

-Double sofa bed and bathroom in one room (second toilet, shower and sink) not 6th bedroom as advertised. Only two toilets (one of which is in that bedroom)

-Flooring around pool gritty and uneven horrible to walk on bare foot.

-Pool dirty on arrival, visibility 30cm and mucky film. Had to ask for it to be cleaned and unable to use it for 24hours of our 1week stay. Told by pool man that the filter was broken completely and needed replacing.

-One bedroom off back of kitchen with shower inside that was smelly.

-Dishwasher didn't work properly.

-Sunbed cushions worn and ripped

-Thick dust under beds and behind furniture and cobwebs

We did really enjoy our stay but the whole villa is run down and needs maintenance work. One of the three showers broke whilst in it making it unusable for our entire stay.

Owner's Response: let me give you a little remark; good top 10 the pool is heated and mesure 16 m ( including roman steps ) by 6,9 large and the deepest is 2,2 m bad 10 -the waterbeds are your personnel sentiment , some people like or dislike. In anyway in the advertising was written 2 kingsize waterbeds. the style of the house is typical south of France and build as well like all the houses there -double sofa bed and bathroom in one room... It's true that you must enter the bathroom before to enter in the little 6st room but upstairs is only 1 bedroom, it's up to the renter to organise himself , this room is pretended for small children who the parents like to keep an eye on them - Flooring around the pool is gritty indeed witch's an advantage for not being slippery, thats avoid that children ( and other ) fall as is the most dangerous around a pool. -Indeed the water was 'nt clear as glass , and it's true that the filter was temporally out of service .It happens but a new filter was ordered en replaced by a new one - for the other review, we can only say that we rent the house for over 10 years and that there were no other complaints. And let me tell you this dear Lucy, the homemanager was every day by you , every time there was a complaint about all and everything. We have even changed the toilet for you, we have changed the sync, we came when you asked even when there was no need for it . It's was a horror that week for the homemanager and the poolman, but they staid calm and friendly despite the never relentless renters Luc
