'We have had a wonderful two weeks here in your beautiful home. Thank you for making it so welcoming and a real home from home. The welcome basket was a nice touch, and we so appreciated the well stocked kitchen and comfortable beds, plus the AC!'.
Visited by one of our team - very highly recommended.
" The property description was accurate and everything worked, especially the wonderful coffee machine. ( which we have now ordered from home! ) It was certainly good value for money and perfectly clean on arrival. The booking procedure was excellent. "

" We have been here before so we knew what to expect from description and photos. Expectations were still exceeded. It was good value for money and the quality of the equipment in the property was superb. Cleanliness on arrival was good. The booking procedure and service was very efficient. This is the most beautiful villa we've ever stayed in. The views are stunning. It's the perfect place to relax but with an abundance of activities close to hand. We also love the fact that you can walk to the village whilst enjoying complete peace and privacy. "

CESS102 - 'We have had a wonderful two weeks here in your beautiful home. Thank you for making it so welcoming and a real home from home. The welcome basket was a nice touch, and we so appreciated the well stocked kitchen and comfortable beds, plus the AC!'.
The property exceeded our expectations and there was everything that you could want. We had a wonderful time and it was like a home from home!
A fantastic villa,everything was such good quality,we just really enjoyed being at the house & at the pool which was a godsend as it was so hot! The shops in the village were great & really had everything we needed, also the bar was very friendly, we hope to return.
The Villa is well placed up in the hills with fantastic views. It feels very private and you are not overlooked. The grounds are quite extensive and very well landscaped. I am a keen gardener and was very impressed with the design, it borrows and merges beautifully with the surrounding landscape. Town is a 10 minute walk and not too strenuous, especially if you go early morning before the sun is too hot. There are a couple of bakeries, a butchers/deli a bar and a couple of restaurants. For bigger shops there are a couple of supermarkets about 15 minutes away by car.
I was there with my family, including a toddler. We mostly enjoyed relaxing by the pool and in and around the villa. I should mention that the villa is very well stocked. The kitchen had more and better utensils/crockery/cutlery than my home kitchen. Also I had taken lots of things I did not need. There is a stock of washing up liquid, dishwasher and washing machine tablets, cleaning products, soaps, handwashes ect......
The bedrooms are nicely decorated and the beds comfortable. I slept well thanks to the air-conditioning in the bedrooms.
The pool area is slightly set away from the main property, on a lower terrace. It has a nice tiled area with loungers and an outside kitchen with a built in BBQ. There is a washing up area and even a fridge. The views are wonderful. It got a little hot down there at 1700 so we would often venture back to the coolness of the terrace off the living room.
The beaches are about a 35-40 minute drive. We went to Valras Plage near Beziers. To be honest it was not really my thing. A little naff with 1000s of people crammed on the hot sands.
I can recommend a visit to Sete, with its lovely canals and seafood restaurants. We also had a nice time in Beziers, there is a good shopping centrre called the Polygon, where we bought our toddlers first pair of shoes. St Chinian is worth a visit on Market Days. There is a lovely restuarant called cafe de paix (or something similar). It is very popular so you may need to book. We also visited Roquebrun and had an ice cream and a swim in the Orb , where the river bends and slows, there is a pebble beach and lots of people swimming.
I think a car is a must. If flying have a look at Beziers, it is the closest by far. The drive up the villa is a little bumpy, and there are a few ruts in the turning area to start the ascent up the villa drive. I had a 4x4 but to be honest it is not a necessity!
