About Sinéad

After frequent trips to France and the Langeudoc region, we are holidaymakers who decided to put some roots down in our favourite part of the world.

Why Sinéad chose Beziers area

Villa Isabelle, Pézenas is beautifully situated in a cul de sac on Le Coteau Moliere - a secure, gated complex with attractive landscaping and vegetation and private parking. It features a spotlessly clean pool area, enjoying spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. This Domaine is located a 10 minute walk to the centre of Pézenas town, with excellent facilities and charming character.

Enjoy the Mediterranean climate, superb motorway & airport access from Pézenas, and a variety of holiday experiences- fabulous beach resorts, excellent shopping in Montpellier, miles of scenic vineyards, small towns with buckets of French charm, terrific street markets, and finally - there's nothing nicer than an evening BBQ on our terrasse.

What makes this house unique

We have holidayed frequently in France so we were clear about what we wanted in a holiday home - contemporary living areas in a traditional style house. Enjoying a superb location, excellent outdoor living space, and easy access to a swimming pool, enjoy the best that Languedoc has to offer! We hope you will agree that our villa is a characterful, family choice in the wonderful medieval town of Pézenas.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Location

Special interest holidays:

Cycling. We have route maps of suggested cycling routes in the area, ranging from a casual Sunday spin, to category climbs. There are also two very welcoming clubs in the area- Pézenas VCLL, and Montagnac AC. The roads are beautifully surfaced, and quiet; the scenic landscape is undulating, miles and miles of vineyards, cycling in this region is quite simply heaven! We can also offer our garage to secure your bike at the end of the day, at no extra charge. The garage is located close to the villa.

Coast/Beach:

As you would expect from its proximity to the Mediterranean, there's a huge choice of beaches in the area. Cap d’Agde is the most popular beach resort in Languedoc: we can recommend Grau d'Agde, with playground, restaurants and other amenities, or Tamarissiere, a beautiful unspoilt and family-friendly beach (shallow, flat calm water). Meze is a lively, fishing port with great beach, restaurants and amenities. All beaches 20 mins/20 kms away.

Travel:

Driving: Pézenas is 10-12 hours drive from Calais via the A75, and 9.5 hours from Cherbourg.

Flights: Low cost airlines fly to Beziers (20 mins), Montpellier (40 mins), Carcassonne (60 mins), Perpignan (60 mins), Nimes (60 mins), Rodez (110 mins), Girona (110 mins). Try Ryanair, Easyjet, Flybe and Aer Lingus. A car is essential to enjoy the best of the region.

Distances:

The villa is located in the Coteau Moliere, a gated domaine located at the edge of Pézenas. It's a 1km stroll to the old town, a 2 minute drive to a variety of excellent shops and supermarkets (Carrefour and Intermarché - both have excellent fish counters, also Aldi and Lidl), 2 organic produce shops and a McDonalds with outdoor play area (not very French but always appreciated by the kids). There's a secluded and shaded playground in a park 5 minutes walk away - a haven on a hot afternoon.

Further Details:

Shopping. Don't miss the Odyesseum Shopping Centre in Montpellier (exit 29) - Zara, H&M, Mango and many more. Great restaurants, cinema, aquarium, bowling, etc. Montpellier itself is known as the Paris of the South, a well-deserved title. It's simply beautiful, chic, young and friendly.

Aigues Mortes/Camargue. A one hour drive - beautiful, fortified town - walk along the ramparts, enjoy lunch in one of the many restaurants. Watch for flamingos in the wetland lagoons.

Beautiful Villa in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at this lovely villa. It was very clean, comfortable and well equipped and the terrace area in particular was fantastic for an evening barbecue with a glass or two of wine. The WiFi was very reliable (very often NOT the case in some properties we have rented) and the pool (barely a minute away from the villa) was delightful and seldom crowded.

Pezenas itself is a beautiful town, only about a ten minute walk from the villa. It was an easy and pleasant walk down to get the morning croissants and bread, and enjoyable to visit in the evening for a drink at one of the many bars, or a meal at a restaurant. The old town in particular is delightful to stroll around.

It's also an ideal location for exploring the area and we particularly enjoyed Montpellier, Carcassonne and St Guilham le Desert. Aigues Mortes was also well worth a visit, as was Sete and the nearby beaches.

Sinead was friendly and helpful from booking to departure and the whole experience was hassle-free.

We definitely recommend the Villa Isabelle and hope to return before too long!

Truly lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We found the accommodation to be exactly as described in the literature. So often a booking does not live up to expectations - in this instance, however, our expectations were exceeded. The property was spotlessly clean and really was a home from home in terms of the equipment/items that it contained. We enjoyed reading on the terrace (which offered privacy) and swimming in the clean and well-maintained pool which is located very close to the house. Sinead provided a lot of helpful information about the surrounding area. We were without a car but did not find this to be a problem - the journey to and from the airport can be done quite easily by public transport and the centre of Pezenas itself is a short walk away from the house. Buses are cheap in France and we also visited nearby Beziers. I would have no hesitation in recommending the property and the area to friends and family.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this really lovely villa, everything was perfect for our family of four which included two teenagers. In particular with teenagers in mind, the WiFi was very good. The property was well equipped and the terrace was a great size with sun from 7 am till at least 7 pm. We had all our meals outside. The house is very close to the pool area which was great for our kids and the pool was never very busy. The walk into Pezanas was all flat and took just over 10 mins, great to be close but not too close. There is so much to see in the area. Highly recommend Montpellier which is about an hour away and the Jazz Festival in Saint Thiebery which was about a 15 mins drive away. Also our kids loved Euro Park in Vias which was much better value than taking them to Aqualand. We would definitely recommend this Villa and Sinead was extremely helpful and friendly, giving us lots of information, she couldn't have done any more. Thank you for providing such a great base for our stay in the South of France. We have made some amazing memories and I am sure we will be returning.

Beautiful home in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Villa Isabelle is a picturesque,comfortable, and well equipped home. The layout is spacious with a lovely terrace. Upon arrival we were struck by how clean and well maintained the property is. All the little things you may require on holiday have been thought about. Wifi is excellent and the stunning pool is only a few steps away. We ventured into Pezenas most days and were very impressed with the atmosphere there. The buildings are beautiful and we felt we got a glimpse of the authentic, traditional French way of life. We enjoyed the local wine too! Having two young children, we were more than happy to spend most of our time at the Villa itself. The complex is very peaceful and secure. We look forward to returning and would have no hesitation in recommending to friends. Customer service is most excellent. Little touches like the very comprehensive guide to the Villa and the local area were most welcome.

A wonderful holiday.

Audrey & Frank.

wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Villa Isabella was exactly as described and all the facilities were well maintained and very clean. The location is perfect, and the gated domaine is secure and well looked after. The pool was a pleasure to use, clean and never too crowded. Dealing with Sinead was easy and very pleasant. She was very helpful during the booking process, leading up to, and after our holiday. During the stay there was a minor issue with the hot water, and it was resolved very promptly without any fuss through the local contact person.

We would definitely recommend this property and plan to return.

Pezenas is a great historic town, with so much going on. A beautiful place for an evening meal, and stroll, shopping or just soaking up the atmosphere.

The surrounding region is packed with so much to do for young families or couples. Beaches, harbours, horse riding, forest rope climbs, historic towns/villages, kayaking. The list is endless. We especially enjoyed the Pedolrail for some early evening fun!

Can’t wait to return..

Thank you Sinead for helping to make our holiday one to remember and cherish.

Villa Isabelle - Pezenas

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing, comfortable stay at Villa Isabelle. The villa was exactly as described in the listing, it was a home away from home. The level of equipment was very good and we found the villa spotlessly clean on arrival with the property tastefully decorated and well-maintained.

The owners were very quick to respond to emails and gave us lots of information on the villa and the local area prior to our stay.

I would highly recommend this villa.
