About Karenza McCarthy

Villa Karli is a very special place.

Our "France House" is our wonderful second home in the South of France and adored by all of the family.

Purchased by my parents a few years ago, we searched high and low for a villa that felt right and would suit us all.

The minute we saw it, we knew it was to be. Although Villa Karli is owned by my parents, as a French speaker, I manage the rentals and day to day running of our lovely home.

My husband and I have two beautiful children who would spend every weekend and holiday at the villa given half the chance.

We have set up Villa Karli as our own home - we try and provide everything you could possibly need when holidaying abroad.

We would be delighted to welcome you to our "France House" and hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.

Karenza McCarthy purchased this villa in 2006

Why Karenza McCarthy chose Creissan

The first time we visited the Languedoc, we fell in love with its slow pace of life and the wonderfully friendly, vivacious locals. Somehow, much of the Languedoc has managed to escape excessive development and it remains a true picture of real France. The town and village markets offer dazzling displays and wonderful aromas of locally sourced produce. Delicious fruit and vegetables, amazingly fresh fish and meat can be found in the higgledy-piggledy streets and squares, crammed with market stalls selling their delicacies and wares.

Local beaches are scrupulously clean, parking is free and the shores are safe and calm. Local shops and restaurants are welcoming and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. A wonderful place to while away the days, Villa Karli is a haven abroad.

What makes this villa unique

Located in the heart of a peaceful village, Villa Karli is ideally located. There is SO much to see and do within just a short drive of the villa. Whether you are seeking solace on the sand/in the sea, looking for watersports or golf, or maybe you're more interested in sightseeing and family friendly activities, Villa Karli can cater for your every need. Just a stone's throw from the Blue Flag awarded beaches as well as the Black mountains and the Languedoc National Park, guests at Villa Karli are spoilt for choice. Within an hour's drive of 4 airports and just 20 minutes from a TGV station, Villa Karli is extremely convenient whether you opt to drive, fly or take the train. Offering all the comforts of your own home, Villa Karli is the perfect property for families holidaying abroad.

Little gem in south of France

  • 5 of 5

I have just been to Villa Karli for the third time and cannot recommend it enough. We were looking for a relaxing homely holiday villa and Villa Karli ticked the boxes.

It is amazingly equipped for families with toys, swings and books. It has a comfy living room with a great dining area if not warm enough to sit out on the front or back terraces. The use of a bbq is lovely and The pool is well kept and clean. The villa was spotless and well equipped.

The village is what you would expect in the rural area of France.. A lovely bakery and small store that sells the essentials as supermarkets in the bigger towns nearby. Plenty of great places to dine out and the owner gives a great info pack with the local knowledge.

The area has lovely wine which I would recommend trying!!! Perfect sitting on the front terrace sampling the local wine!!

We walked everyday around the local village by the vines and visited nearby villages. Capestang was a real favourite as was Valras the nearest beach!

We look forward to our next visit!

Excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

Property was exactly as described. Very clean and spacious. Great for families of all ages. Well stocked for young children particularly with games and swings. Garden is secure with gates and safe for children to play in. Pool looked great and well maintained. There's a lot to see in the area but you do need a car. Owner was very helpful with local knowledge and flights etc. I would certainly recommend this villa to anyone. A great find.

Ruime villa met zwembad voor iedere leeftijd

  • 4 of 5

Wij (2 gezinnen; 4 volwassenen en 4 kinderen 15, 14, 3 en 2 jaar) hebben een heerlijke tijd gehad in Villa Karli. De villa ligt in een rustig dorpje van waaruit de bezienswaardigheden goed te bereiken zijn met de auto. In het dorpje zit een bakker (op loopafstand) die erg lekker brood bakt en uitermate vriendelijk is. Er is een klein winkeltje waar je de meeste artikelen kunt kopen en een cafetaria. Voor de boodschappen reden we naar Capestang (10 min met de auto) waar een Lidl en Intermarche zit.

Rondom het huis zijn diverse terrassen zodat je kunt kiezen of je in de schaduw of in de zon wilt zitten/liggen. Het zwembad is groot genoeg om in te spelen met meerdere personen. Het zwembad is voorzien van een hek waardoor de kleine kinderen niet zomaar het zwembad in kunnen lopen, dit geeft een veilig gevoel.

In en om het huis is veel speelgoed voor de kinderen in alle leeftijden. Daarnaast is er WiFi wat voor de oudere kinderen als fijn wordt ervaren.

De woonkamer/keuken is erg groot en het huis beschikt over 4 slaapkamers waarvan 3 met inbouwkasten. De keuken is uitgerust met alle faciliteiten. Buiten is er nog een heerlijke buitenbarbeque die we veel gebruikt hebben. Er één aparte badkamer en aparte wc en bij één slaapkamer zit een kleine douchegelegenheid met wc. Wij hebben 3 weken genoten van het huis, de omgeving en het weer.

Special interest holidays:

Painting courses, mosaic courses, cookery courses, horse riding courses can all be arranged in advance.


Beaches can be reached in just 20 minutes - the area is renowned for its long white sandy beaches that stretch for miles and miles. Most have been awarded Blue Flag status and are cleaned scrupulously in the summer months. What's even better is, most beaches offer free car parks.

At Valras Plage for example, the 4-km-long beach has every modern facility, particularly in terms of safety. A stunning beach for adults and children alike.


Getting to the villa couldn't be easier - whether by air, road or rail. Mainline + budget airlines serve Beziers, Montpellier, Perpignan and Carcassonne-all within 45 minutes. Nimes, Gerona and Marseilles are slighter further afield, though still very accessible. Cheap car hire is available at every airport.

The TGV route links Paris to Beziers in approx 4 hours and passes through some stunning countryside.

Driving from the UK is a simple alternative with superb road links all the way.


Our villa is located in the heart of the village, just a minute or two's walk from the local shops and amenities.

The villa is about 15 minute's away from both the beautiful town of Beziers and in the other direction, Narbonne.

The area is jam packed with things to do and see - the only thing to decide will be whether to while away the day, basking in the glorious sunshine by the pool, sip chilled wine on the terrace over delicious local cuisine or venture out to explore the area!

Further Details:

We have wireless broadband installed in the villa for our guests to use free of charge. As well as the local shops (incl. Small deli/supermarket, boulangerie, wine cave, market place) being just a couple of minute's walk from the villa, there is also a 30m village swimming pool, paddling pool and tennis court less than 150m away. A multi purpose sports space for a kickabout, basketball and the like is just round the corner and free of charge.
