About the property

Villa in Lamalou Les Bains, Herault, Languedoc-Roussillon, Private, Peaceful, Stunning mountain Views, 10 Minutes Walk Into Town Lamalou les Bains,Herault, perfect for yoga, golf

This is an eighteen year old property which has been finished to a traditional, yet modern style. It is set in the outskirts of the spa town of Lamalou les Bains and stands amongst the mountainous region of Cévennes which is popular amongst trekkers and fruit pickers. The house is split over several levels with three main bedrooms and a forth bedroom, which leads to the double shower room. The master has an en-suite, the double has a shower and sink and the other main bedroom is a twin. There is one separate bathroom and two separate toilets. There is also a well-equipped kitchen with all the utensils you'll need for your stay. The dining room is open planned and spacious with a dining table for 8/10. This leads to a private sun terrace, perfect for al fresco dining. The terrace overlooks the swimming pool, woods/ mountain range and you can see the village of Poujols in the distance. We do not have a garden as such but if you have dogs, as long as they can't jump high, there are secure areas that you can leave them in.

Villa St. Michel is only a 15 minute walk away or a 2 minute drive from the spa town of Lamalou les Bains where you can find a post office, supermarket, tourist office, restaurants, bars, hairdressers, spas, tennis courts, thermal baths, public pool and a market on a Tuesday. The villa has satellite TV and free wi-fi.

With it's idyllic setting, we believe that this property is perfect for relaxation, and if you're into yoga, we have yoga matts for your use either around the pool or in the woods. There is a yoga studio in town if you want to get some tips or have a go with an experienced teacher and we are running a yoga retreat from September onwards if you are interested.

Reviews from past guests all state that the photos do not do this villa justice. It's an ideal get away if you have noisy kids and you don't want other families judging you OR if you want to relax away from the noisy kids :-)

Activities to do within an hours driving distance include horse riding, kayaking, trekking, aquapark, beach, parks, golf, yoga, vineyard tours, rivers, lakes, zip lining, fishing, cycling and many more.

About A Ross

We are a family from London who bought our property 18 years ago. We love the location because it is secluded yet we are only a two minute drive from the spa town of Lamalou les Bains and a 40 minute drive from the bustling coastal town of Agde.

I (Annah) have recently moved to St Pons which is a 30 minute drive from the house. So if you need anything, I am only a short drive away.

We hope that you choose our property for your holiday because we know that you will enjoy it.

A Ross purchased this villa in 2000

Guestbook comments from the manager

Absolutely stunning location this large villa was perfect for the getaway we planned. It was a short walk from the town centre with beautiful sites along the way. It's location is set up a quiet lane with lovely views and a private pool perfect for privacy. The interior is modern yet kept inline with the location and type of house. I am looking to go back this year and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

We stayed at this fantastic secluded spacious villa with stunning views across the picturesque local area for eleven night in July/August. The house is furnished to a very high standard and had everything we needed to make it home away from home. The bedrooms are a good size and living areas and terrace (overlooking the pool) are perfect places to relax. The house has several bathrooms and bedrooms on either side of the house which make it ideal for a couple of families to share. The kids absolutely loved the pool which is in very private and in excellent condition.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The property is located in a pretty quiet area close to Lamalou Les Bains, a spa town and with an abundance of activities nearby including kayaking on the River Orb, canyonning and swimming/walking/relaxing in the Gorge L'Heric.

The owner was very responsive to questions and all dealings were very straightforward. The description was very accurate - the pictures give some idea but if anything the outside area was even more impressive - a really nice top level area with table and chairs where we ate all meals and a nice lower area which was a real suntrap and clean decent sized pool with plenty loungers. There is also a BBQ on this level. The property was clean and met all our needs - the layout is a little bit unusual but comfortably allowed our three teenagers their own bedrooms. It was very warm at night even with the fan on and window open and the mosquitoes were the only down side - but that's a monor quibble. We didn't eat out a huge amount as there was a giant supermarket in Herepian, about 5 minutes drive away. We did eat at L'Attelier 7 one night in Colombierrs and this was a lovely French bistro with well presented food albeit a limited menu. Would recommended it. We went to Beziers and Montpellier one day (the latter is a beautiful city and about an hours drive) and went one day to the beach along from Cap D'Agde -can't recall which one we went to but the tourist office in Lamalou advised it on the basis it was a bit quieter and this was indeed the case. The tourist office is very good and worth going into on arrival. They also advised a cycle along the Voie Vert an old disused railway line and this too was a brilliant recommendation. Great holiday, great location.

Lovely country getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our 2 week holiday at Villa St Michel. We absolutely loved it. If you love the countryside, wildlife and peace and quiet, you will love it. We often strolled into Lamalou-les-bains which was only a 20 minute stroll for lunch and or dinner. The only problem was dragging ourselves away from the bridge over the river where we often stopped to watch the heron fishing and the variety of smaller birds ! The villa itself was well equipped, with everything you could need. The pool is perfect with plenty of loungers and chairs for everyone. We barbecued quite often, and once the sun had gone down, spent long, lazy evenings chatting and drinking the excellent local wine on the terrace. Thank you Annah for your great communication and making our stay so enjoyable!

A Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent one of our most memorable family holidays at this villa located in a beautiful and tranquil area of Southern France. The villa itself enjoys a lovely secluded position with some beautiful views of the mountains of the Languedoc National Park. It is well equipped and spacious and close to so many different places to visit. Our children loved spending endless hours playing around the pool. We would recommend this as a wonderful location for a holiday.
