About Lovely Villa, St Pons de Mauchiens
This villa is a bit like the Tardis - it's much bigger on the inside than it appears from the outside!
The owners have thought very carefully about what makes a holiday villa just perfect for its guests and have arrived at a great blend of comfort and convenience for all concerned. You will definitely appreciate that this is a home, not just a holiday rental as soon as you enter the front door.
One of the great things about this property is that it is within 5 minutes walk of the centre of the village of St Pons de Mauchien and yet the pool area is not overlooked and very tranquil.
The 8m x 5m pool with stepped access is securely fenced so you can be sure your little ones are safe and you will love the views across the pool from the terrace to the surrounding vineyards and countryside. There is a shaded outside dining area to protect from the Mediterranean sun but you can also lounge in the sun on the front terrace or by the pool.
There is a small side garden to wander in and admire the plants.
Features four good-sized bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Perched on a hill and crowned with a fine Romanesque church this small lovely village has retained its fascinating medieval character, and within a five minute walk there are immediately accessible cycling and walking routes into the surrounding vineyards and countryside with their wild flowers and aromas of thyme sage and rosemary.
St Pons offers two bars, one that specialises in wine with a small restaurant and occasional entertainment, both within easy walking distance. The restaurant also operates a bread depot so you can buy daily fresh bread there too.
The villa commands a prominent site with panoramic views. With front and side entrance gates and generous off road private parking, the pretty garden and extensive patio areas provide several choices of seating areas.
This is a wine-producing village with local vineyards offering tastings and local produce. . A few minutes’ drive will bring you to the internationally-known Paul Mas vineyard and its restaurant.
