Detached Villa with Mediterranean Garden and Shared Pool



Updated: 22-Sep-2016
Villa outskirts of Pezenas, Languedoc Roussillon, France - Secure and quiet location, 15 mins walk into Pézenas market town, less than 30 minutes to the Med

Villa Toulouse is a comfortable detached bungalow, on a private gated estate, with shared pool. The villa has ample living space for 6 people, is well equipped and is comfortable year round. The secluded garden is ideal for sun bathing and outdoor eating. The villa is on the outskirts of Pézenas within a pleasant 15 min walk to the town which bustles with life; cafes, restaurants, many artists and craftsmen, a year round Saturday market and many memories of Molière. There are frequent attractions during the year including concerts, exhibitions, open air theatre, street parties, and late night shopping during the season when the streets are alive until midnight. For those who wish to explore further afield, a few miles north takes you into hilly walking country, drive west along the coast to Collioure, and a little further to the Spanish border, or east to Montpellier, the Petite Carmargue and Aigues Mortes.

About the Owner

From the Owner

We love France and after much searching found this development in Pézenas. We love the town and the area. Access is good with choice of airports, but we often drive, taking advantage of the Millau bridge. and the toll free A75, and sometimes the train Eurostar/TGV which is very relaxing. The area around Pézenas is very attractive, never ending vineyards, winding roads shaded by plane trees, the mountains and Regional park areas to the north, the meandering and enchanting Canal du Midi, and more medieval towns and villages than you could shake a stick at!

Further Details:

Pezenas has many opportunities for eating and shopping, and it is centred in France's largest wine growing area. Wine can be bought direct from the hundreds of small caves in the area, from the cooperatives or from well stocked supermarkets. There is an Leclerc about 15min walk from the villa, and a Carrefour Market a little further away (both now open on Sun mornings). The weekly market (Saturdays) is not to be missed; Pézenas is also renowned for its important artist/craftsman community and bric-a-brac dealers.

Pezenas is well supplied with (French) banks and cash dispensers.

From the Owner

We love the convenience of Villa Toulouse, its space and the high ceilings of the lounge and sitting room. Walking into town for a coffee is one of the family's main morning activities. However there are so many interesting places within reach of Pézenas that we are still exploring.
