Fantastic, quiet retreat in the south of France

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this Villa. Beautiful surroundings and lovely walks close by. The village is very quiet and quaint with its narrow streets and authentic french houses. It is a short drive to an array of shops, both locally run or commercial.

The Villa was very well equipped with all the necessities you would require on a holiday, plus many more. It was very well presented and furnished to a high standard. The outside area was relaxing, with lots of shade to escape the heat and the pool a delight.

There are many beautiful beaches and resorts to visit close by and a trip to Beziers and Sete is an absolute must.

There is no WiFi but, I have to say, it was so nice to escape modern technology. Our 13yr old even agreed!!!

Mike and Karen have obviously taken great care to ensure their Villa provides their guests with a comfortable, relaxing holiday and we would not hesitate to return

Recently stayed here with my parents, not good for those with mobility problems. There is everything you need in the villa. Even a spare adapter. Pool is not heated and does not have a handrail, but no problem for us although good be useful. Lots of shady bits if you need it around the property. Nice to see the pool is cleaned regularly and the villa is also thoroughly cleaned after each visit.

One little tip, do not put your recycle goods in bags, they won't take it and you will need to find the decreterie near Magalas. It's next to the pompiers building....

The villa is located out of Bezier & the views are amazing. The local village is very quiet but there are plenty of other local villages nearby with a super U located down the hill for all your needs. Try visiting some of the local vineyards or domaines. Beware some roads lead nowhere except a vineyard...

We had fantastic weather whilst at the villa and saw a spectacular lightening storms.

A great location for getting to the hills and still near enough for the beach if you want it... Enjoy, we did..
