About the property

Villa in Lamalou les Bains, Herault, Languedoc Roussillon, France - Quiet location yet close to all the amenities

Villa with pool on the outskirts of Lamalou les Bains. The main house has 3 bedrooms and attached is a apartment with one bedroom. Lamalou les Bains is located in the National Park of Haute Languedoc, a spa town surrounded by beautiful hills, countryside and vineyards. The area is fantastic for walks, swimming and canoeing whilst the beach is 45 minutes away. The villa is on the edge of the town so restaurants, shops and even the casino are within walking distance.

About Chris Newman

The villa was purchased by Chris Newman as a holiday home in March 2011.

The location is wonderful in that a short walk can take you to the wooded mountains of Languedoc National Park in one direction or the spa town of Lamalou les Bains the opposite direction.

Having viewed many properties this was the place to be.

After lots of painting and decorating and 2 newly fitted bathrooms the house was completed in June.

We plan to visit several times each year-Beziers airport is a real benefit as it is so close.

We have a local English couple who do the maintenance and changeovers whilst the swimming pool is regularly maintained during the summer months.

Why Chris Newman chose Lamalou-les-Bains

A holiday here can be as quiet or busy as you want it to be.

The Med' beaches of Valras Plage and Cap d'Agde are about 40 minutes away as are several historic cathedral cities such as Beziers and Narbonne.

Nearer are vast areas of vineyards as well as spectacular mountains.

Great for all outdoor pursuits.

Lamalou is a busy town in the summer months but the location is still very peaceful.

What makes this villa unique

The first impression of the villa is the stunning mountain views you have from many of the rooms as well as the swimming pool area.

A favourite place is the sun terrace which is secluded and in the shade. There is a large dining table here or you can eat by the barbecue terrace.

The villa is all on one level with the appartment lower down with a separate entrance and facilities.

The drive through the main gate can accommodate several cars though originally this was designed as an area to play 'boule'.

The garden is secure and private with sun bathing and shaded areas.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic time! Your villa was everything we were looking for spacious, great pool, excellent location etc and the views from the pool were amazing. We had great days walking in Gorge D’Heric and swimming at lake Salagou. Visiting Bezier and Olargues which were lovely places. We even found a Go Karting track nearby for my son!

We needed to contact Barbara and Terry upon arrival as the key for the sun terrace door was not on the hook. Within the hour Terry was round and supplied us with his key, which was much appreciated.

All in all, we had a superb relaxing family holiday, many thanks for allowing us use of your villa.

Kind regards

Lovely house situated on the edge of the town with beautiful views of the mountains.

We had a relaxing time in Lamalou days were busy though during the winter the town is quiet at night. House was warm and comfortable with the woodburner on and a bottle of local wine. Recommend Pezenas for a good day out.

Great location with fabulous views across the hills but also close to the town centre.

  • 4 of 5

The house is located in an area where you are within the National park with hill and river walks but also close to the vineyards and the coast. Lamalou has several restaurants and bars the best one being Petite Abbey, but closed early part of the week, quite steep if walking back.Good warm sheltered area by the pool and the apartment, house is more spacious.

House is split in main house for 6 and separate apartment for 2

  • 3 of 5

This location is split in a main house for 6 and a separate apartment for 2, both have their own entrance and are quite separated, so actually you rent a house for 6.

The house is according the description, but needs some general renovation, e.g. some broken tiles, broken wind hooks and painting.

In total only 2 towels per person are provided for a whole week, and only 1 towel for the kitchen. There is a washing machine, but to our opinion and experiences this is low - for sure in relation to the price of the house.

The furniture - inside and outside - is poor if you are with a party of 8.

Great views, good pool in great atmosphere of the Languedoc.

Easy to walk to nearby village with shops and restaurants.

Owner's Response: At the end of the summer we carry out maintenance for each room, it is not always possible to repair damages or replace during mid season. There are two towels available per person but the washing machine can be used if needed both for towels or any other clothes.
