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.

Customer Reviews

  • If you’re thinking about this place just go ahead and book it! The town of St Pons du Mauchiens is very beautiful... very small... the view from the property is fantastic and the garden and the pool area are beautiful.... inside the house is a bit dated but it doesn’t matter.... it just lends itself to relaxing even more.... everything a family could possible need for an amazing holiday is here.... and ten minutes to the beautiful Pezenas with an abundance of restaurants and things to see.
    - Marion M. 2020

  • c'est une maison qui est très bien conçue pour passer d'agréable vacances. Un espace jour, un espace nuit et les sanitaires en plus la piscine est très bien exposée.....malgré la localisation en lotissement, il n'y a pas de vis à vis.

    it is a house which is very well designed for a pleasant holiday. A day space, a sleeping area and numerous sanitary facilities ...... moreover the swimming pool is very well exposed ..... despite the location in a subdivision, there is no opposite.

  • We loved the villa , it had everything we needed and more. It was all very clean. The garden and pool were stunning. The village was lovely and we enjoyed the local bar where we collected our daily bread and croissants. Perfect villa and location for a relaxing holiday. Would love to return.
