About Villa Scandinavia
Villa Scandinavia is a wonderful property for families looking to spend some quality time together in the South of France. There are many aspects of this villa that make it the perfect place for relaxation, such as the south-facing terraces that offer uninterrupted panoramic views over the ever-changing colours of the vineyards leading down to the shimmering Mediterranean in the distance.
This property is a luxury villa with a private swimming pool - it offers panoramic views and is set in an idyllic location amongst vineyards in the pretty village of Cabrerolles, near Beziers in the wine region of the Languedoc.
The villa was built with attention to detail and has a Scandinavian feel with the use of quality materials and wood throughout. The Languedoc has the highest concentration of vineyards in the world and Cabrerolles is particularly well placed for wine tasting. There are two vineyards of note in the village and many more surrounding it.
The property consists of 2 separate self-contained apartments, each with two double bedrooms with an option of a further sofa-bed for extra accommodation. It is well designed for two families holidaying together, and depending on availability and season, each apartment can be rented separately for smaller groups.
The downstairs area of the villa consists of two bedrooms (sleeping a total of 4 people), an open-plan living room with a fully fitted kitchen, and a bathroom with a shower. There is a sofa-bed which could accommodate one or two extra people as required. There are patio doors which lead out onto the terrace and swimming pool with pretty views, and a TV in the lounge.
The upstairs area is a large open-plan kitchen, dining and living area. There are two bedrooms (sleeping a total of 4 people), as well as a sofa-bed for one or two extra people. There is also a bathroom with shower.

You will also find patio doors which open onto the full-length terrace which extends the length of the front of the house. There are patio chairs and loungers to take advantage of the space.
The outside area of the villa is as impressive as the interior, thanks to the private swimming pool (8m x 4m) and a barbecue area for relaxing. There is also a galleried terrace area which offers fantastic views and is perfect for al fresco dining, whether it be in the evening with a chilled glass of local wine, or in the morning with some croissants from the local bakery.

Location and Map
This marker is for indication purpose only
The property nestles on a hillside in the pretty village of Cabrerolles. A perfect location for lovers of wine and countryside but close enough to the historic towns of Pezenas, Beziers and the coast.
The location gives countless opportunities for activities and day trips either on the doorstep or within easy driving distance. The beautiful region of the Languedoc is well known for its diverse attractions to suit any age or taste and most importantly has 300 sunny days a year.
There are streams, carving out cave systems, and river canyons like the gorges of the Ardèche, the Cèze, the Aude and the Hérault. The river gorges with their clear water and dramatic cliffs are beautiful locations for bathing, picnicking, canoeing, riding, walking and fishing.
Surrounding the house is the protected park of the Haut Languedoc which gives opportunities for walking - here the views are magnificent and the pathways are full of thyme, rosemary and mint growing wild.
There is also biking and mountain biking (there is a track next door to the house), canoeing on the River Orb, horse riding and off-road pursuits, as well as water activities available on the Lac de Salagou and a golf course within easy driving distance.
Beziers (20 mins away)
Beziers has attractive tree-lined boulevards and was the birthplace of Paul Riquet, creator of the Canal du Midi. Indeed, the Canal du Midi flows from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean across the Languedoc with some particularly attractive stretches around Narbonne at Paraza, Roubia and Ventenac.
Pezenas (20 mins away)
The historic town of Pézenas was the home of Molière and is now a UNESCO world heritage site. This beautiful town is steeped in history and culture, and lies at the heart of the Coteaux du Languedoc wine growing region.
Montpellier (50 mins away)
Montpellier, one of the oldest university towns in France which has a very beautiful old quarter and a striking modern area designed by the Catalan architect Bofill. Further west again is the Bassin de Thau, one of France's foremost oyster and mussel producing regions, dominated by the Mont St. Clair on the other side of which is Sète, that vibrant and colourful port renowned for its summer jousting on the canals.
Carcassonne (90 mins away)
The splendid citadel of Carcassonne needs little introduction but few realise it was besieged during the Albigensian crusades as was the picturesque village of Minerve. Other reminders of this era are the ruined castles of the Cathars that are striking witnesses to their tragic history such as Puilaurens, Quéribus and Peyrepertuse.
Coastal Resorts & Beaches (all 30-40 minutes away)
Take time out to visit the ancient Greek city of Cap d'Age, now France's top seaside resort, with great sandy beaches and round-the-clock entertainment. Where fresh water and salt water come together, where the Canal du Midi and the Herault River meet the sea, Le Cap d'Agde, La Cité d'Agde, Le Grau d' Agde and La Tamarissière combine the Mediterranean Sea and holiday fun.
14 km of sandy beaches, 2,500 years of history and heritage, an environment full of natural areas for visits (Canal du Midi, Le Bagnas Nature Reserve, the Undersea Trail), events and a multitude of leisure activities for the entire family: golf, tennis, thalassotherapy, water activities at the marina and nautical centre, Aqualand Park, amusement park for the children, museums, the Casino, Ile des Loisirs ("Leisure Island"), discotheques and restaurants where the chefs prepare enticing dishes with local products of the land and sea.
Valras Plage,Vias Plage,Portiragnes and Serignan are other family sea resorts.
Roquebrun (20 mins away)
This extremely pretty village beside the river Orb is known as 'little Nice', and has a Mediterranean garden planted with 400 species. Here there are opportunities for walking, hiking, rock climbing and canoeing. The high mountainous area between Hérault and Aude is a country of wild natural beauty. Limestone plateaux, covered in scrub, are sliced through by deep canyons, splashed with red ochre on lake shores, pitted with caves and natural craters, and strewn with historic sites - from industrial relics to religious monuments and ancient citadels.
Sète, "The Little Venice of Languedoc"
Between the Mediterranean Sea and the Etang de Thau, separated from Cap d'Agde by twelve kilometres of sandy beaches, Sète is an authentic and colourful authentic fishing port crossed by canals.
Bourride, stuffed squid and mussels, cuttlefish with rouille sauce, tielles, oysters and other seafood platters are all culinary specialities full of the traditions of the town, its fishermen and the surrounding vineyards. During the summer Sète, hosts a famous jousting festival with knights doing battle on the canal.

Property visited by one of our team. Highly recommended, particularly for the additional assistance offered by the owner to guests prior to their stay in terms of knowledge of the area and help with booking anything which appeals, recommending restaurants, days out etc and local events that are on while you are in the area. The owner strives to make her villa a home from home and offers added value and an excellent level of comfort and assistance, proved by the 5 star ratings she receives every year!
We enjoyed a fantastic family holiday in July/August 2017 at the property. The villa was stunning, a large pool with lots of furniture, an excellent stone BBQ and wonderful terrace with great views. The villa lacked nothing with spacious rooms, a great kitchen and big bathroom. We lived on the first floor but the ground floor would allow more than one family or a group to be self-sufficient. We explored the area extensively with kayaking the highlight and found the peace and tranquillity by the pool in the late afternoon and early evening the perfect way to relax.
We had a wonderful two weeks stay at Les Galeries. The house and its extensive range of contents provided us both, our daughter, son-in-law and baby grandson with everything we needed. The property provides privacy, tranquility, a great aspect and lovely views. The swimming pool was superb and not too deep, making it ideal for our use with our grandson. The covered ground and first floor terraces provided much welcome shade from the hot sun. The dining area on the first floor terrace was a great place to eat and from which to enjoy the views. Lisa could not have been more helpful in taking our booking and following our arrival was welcoming and thorough with the information she provided to enable us to enjoy our holiday. David, who comes to clean the pool was also really nice to speak with. This is one of the best properties we have stayed in in France. We highly recommend it to others.
I booked a week here for myself and my family after spending a week in Paris. After the hustle and bustle of the capital this was a very relaxed week. The villa is gorgeous, split into two although we only used the top section. Everything you need is provided, apart from your food and your clothes. A very well stocked villa. The pool was fantastic and we all loved it, from my 8 year old to my wife. Perfect family size. If you want a noisy holiday this isn't the place, but to chill out it is perfect. It's not too far from places if you want to go further afield providing you have your own car, we went to Beziers, Carcassone and Valras Plage. As a runner I loved running through the hills and the vineyards. I could go on and on here, but it really was the holiday of a lifetime and we hope to be back. A little piece of heaven. Lisa and Steve have put a lot of thought into their guests needs and the information on the local area available is fantastic.
We had a wonderful holiday in this great, and versatile villa. Our three teenagers had their little bit of independence in the downstairs apartment whilst there was plenty of space and facilities for us all to gather up stairs. The villa is very well equipped, beautifully and thoughtfully (and practically) furnished and the owners really helpful and friendly. The area is peaceful, the beaches in easy reach and local walks lovely. We didn't stray to far from the villa as we enjoyed the pool, the table tennis and just relaxing so much but when we come again we know that there is lots of activities, within easy reach, to give us more scope. The house keepers were lovely too, not intrusive but helpful and on hand. Highly recommend it!
