About the Owner
My husband David and I live in the UK and have a student rental property business, renting to students in Brighton and Guildford. Having spent most of our holidays in France with our children when they were younger we decided to buy our first home there in 2010 FR9145 and our second in 2014 FR22821.
We pride ourselves on giving a superior service in our property business and have many great reviews from students and holiday makers alike.

Excellent villa in quiet location
Lovely villa with excellent facilities and marvellous views. Good local supermarket. Pezenas is in easy reach with an excellent Carrefour and lots of restaurants and antique shops. Beach within easy reach. Meze is worth a visit with lots of fish restaurants and lovely beaches at Valras Plage. The owners were very efficient and friendly. All in all great holiday, highly recommended.
Fantastic holiday in this beautiful villa
We were a party of 7 ages ranging from 5 to 73 years! The villa is truly lovely, very spacious and extremely well equipped. During the heatwave the pool was a boon and the views from that area are superb. The gas barbecue was first rate and well used. David and Judith were very efficient ,friendly and helpful. Everything lived up to expectations and we have very happy memories of our stay there.
Villa in Margon
This is a fabulous villa in a great location and we would definitely recommend it. The details of the property on the website are highly accurate. The villa is very comfortable and well equipped. It is very clean and well maintained and the owners provided excellent customer service. The pool is great and regularly cleaned. The views from the villa across the pool are wonderful. It is also a good area for seeing a wide variety of bird life.
Margon, where the villa is situated, is a small and quiet village. It is about 40 minutes drive from Beziers so a car is essential. Margon has an imposing chateau and its gardens are well worth visiting. There is a well stocked supermarket and petrol station in Roujon which is only a 10 minute drive away. ‘La Belle Lurette' pizza restaurant in Margon is nearby and is good for takeaways.
In terms of places to visit, Pezenas is an attractive town about a 30 minute drive away with many shops and eating places for tourists amongst its narrow streets. The Saturday market is well worth a visit.
The Cave Cooperative at Alignan-du-Vent is a good option to buy local wines at very reasonable prices.
As a base for visiting the local area, the villa is very well placed. The weird rock formations at Cirque-de-Moreze are worth visiting but make sure you have stout shoes. Carcassonne is fabulous and unsurprisingly very busy. The beaches at Sete are safe and sandy and there are panoramic views of the coast to the north and south from the top of Mont St Clair in Sete. St Guilhem-le-Desert is a quaint medieval village and the nearby Les Grottes des Clamouse are spectacular and worth the guided tour.
From the Owner
“We bought this property in this beautiful rural location simply because we love this area. The views are stunning and it is close enough to plenty of amenities to never run out of things to do.”
Activity and Interests
The lovely long sandy beaches of the Mediterranean are about 30 mins away. With Vias, Portiragnes, Serignan and Valras Plage probably being the closest.
The nearest airport is Beziers being 25-30mins away. Other nearby airports include Montpellier, Perpignan and Carcasonne all being about an hour from Margon. The TGV from Paris stops at Montpellier, Agde and Beziers. By car is easy and motorway all the way either via Lyon or the more scenic and mountainous route down through the Volcans, Cevennes etc and over the famous Millau Viaduct. Although there is a bus service into Margon we would highly recommend a car.
It is a 5 min stroll into the 2 local restaurants. The nearest village with a good selection of local shops is Roujan which is 1.5 miles away, and now has a large SuperU. The beautiful historic market town of Pezenas is 7 miles away with its narrow streets, many restaurants and bars, craft shops, boutiques, cafes, etc. It also has a fantastic Saturday market. Pezenas also has a variety of supermarkets, diy stores, garages, etc.
The village of Margon has a most beautiful 13th century chateau. The grounds of which are open to the public on certain days and are well worth a visit (guided tour included). The village has 2 restaurants open lunchtime and evening The Belle Lurette for informal dining and The Auberge de Chateau for more formal dining. The locale is famous for its wine and there are many Domaines where local wine can be tasted and bought. The local Chateau de Margon wine is available through Domaine D'Arjolle in Pouzolles which is a nearby village.
The area is perfect for cycling as the scenery is beautiful with its vineyards and chateaux and there are many lanes off the beaten track to explore.
The Canal du Midi is nearby and is also well worth a cycle/drive along as the there are many very picturesque villages to explore along the route.
The stunning scenery of Lac Salagou about 25 mins away is well worth a visit. It is popular for swimming, sailing and windsurfing also for walking, mountain biking and fishing. There is also kayaking available on the River Orb.
Carcasonne and Montpellier are both about 1 hr away and well worth visiting. Montpellier is the place if you want serious shopping. Carcasonne is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
