About the Owner

I am now retired & eventually would love to live in France on a permanent basis but until then I enjoy popping across whenever possible . Being on site is instantly relaxing and the weather is always better than back home whatever the time of year .

Bijou and comfortable

We had a lovely ten day stay at this lovely villa. Everything we needed was there and we literally just had to walk over the road to the pool. Highly recommended.

Lovely holiday

  • 4 of 5

Lovely holiday thank you. We were a bit disappointed with the state of the patio, length of grass and plants at front of property when we arrived on the Monday. The grass was cut and the weeds were partially trimmed on the Wednesday. Someone pulled the leaves off the plant at the front of the property. Pictures are available if required.

Unfortunately the toilet seat broke due to the fact that the fixings had corroded. This happened on the 5th August. So we were without a seat for the remainder of our holiday because the owner couldn't get anyone there until the 12th.

Awaiting our deposit refund, not sure how this works.

Owner's Response: Really pleased you enjoyed your holiday . Sorry to hear about the grass & weeds. The head gardener is off sick and would appear his understudy not as efficient . I have sent a copy of your comments to the maintenance company and am awaiting their reply. Re the loo seat further to my apologies at the time , my handyman is normally very quick to visit but at the moment is working away & therefore couldn't attend until the day after your visit . I did offer to find someone else but you kindly said it wasn't a problem . It has been changed now so all new and hopefully comfortable ! Thank you for choosing to holiday ay my home ,I am really glad you had a good stay .

Lovely relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Lovely location,accommodation was good on a small complex ,bar and pool very near but not noisy at night. Canal du midi close we had a lovely walk to bezier and the locks.The beaches were fabulous just a short drive away. Went with husband and 2 children 12 and 15 son played basketball most nights with a group of french children at the complex. We had a thoroughly relaxing holiday with lots and lots of sunshine. Berni communication when booking was excellent .

We have stayed on this complex previously and love the area. The property is in a central location on the site directly opposite the pool, well maintained with a very helpful owner. We would recommend to friends and relatives.

From the Owner

Had been looking for my own 'Place in the Sun' for sometime before coming across this site which ticked all the boxes required. It's remote but not deserted , it's quiet but not boring , the weather is mostly sunny no matter what time of year . The site is right next to the Canal du Midi and also close to the beaches , the local village , the City of Beziers and plentiful parks , shops, markets & tourist attractions. Holidays here can be relaxing, energetic or a bit of both. I really enjoy every visit .

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended


Several beaches nearby the nearest being 10 mins by car . There are quiet beaches or you can choose more built up areas like Valras or cap d'age with fun fairs, thrill rides, jet ski etc. The Villa information book provides a description of all of them for guests along with directions .


A car is advisable to get the most out of this beautiful and historically interesting area.

The nearest airport is beziers which is approx 15mins away, Montpellier 45 & Carcassonne 1 hour as is Perpignan . Car hire available from all airports.

Site is located off junction 36 of the A9 motorway.

If travelling by train the TGV calls at Beziers station which is 10 mins from site by taxi .


Beziers City is 5 kilometres from site as is the village of Colombiers. Both can be walked to along the towpath so depending on pace & how often you are tempted by the boats , ducks & cafés takes anything from 25 mins to 2 hours !!!!

Further Details:

Colombiers village provides both traditional French shopping plus the usual out of town style supermarkets. Beziers is a bustling city centre with various shopping centres and a beautiful park . Artisan shops can be found with ease. A regeneration plan has seen many tourist attractions added to the area including forest trails with climbing and zip wires and a centre devoted to bouncy castles which children love especially as they have water cascading down the bouncy slides ( adults also allowed ! ) . There are historical monuments & Cathedrals , mountain trails , canoeing , cinema, bowling alleys , aqua land ..the list is endless and all within 10 mins to an hour .something to suit everyone's interests

From the Owner

I always say to holiday makers a car is advisable which it is is you want to travel the area, however it is also nice just to stay on site & relax which to be fair is what I mostly do on my visits. I love swimming hence why I brought somewhere with an indoor heated pool as well as the outdoor summer ones. There is a weekly market on site in the summer to get provisions as well as the snack bar for meals & shopping essentials. A baker provide fresh bread daily and there are super walks along the canal . The site is safe, secure & friendly .
