There is a new wine bar opened in Poilhes which is causing a lot of interest locally - its called Vinauberge and you can see details on www.vinauberge.com. There is a Tapas Bar and wine tastings, a great place for a lazy afternoon by the banks of the Canal du Midi!

GUEST REVIEW
I wanted to say thank you so much for all your efforts and ensuring we maximised opportunities on our holiday. We all had a glorious time! My 8 year old daughter described our time there as "epic". A fabulous holiday with lots of special memories. We really appreciated all your help and efficiency.

owner profile

Earth, Water and Fire
Or more precisely, rocks, sea and sun. These are the elements that persuaded my wife and I to buy our lovely house in Poilhes. Julia is a geologist and we are both mad about watersports so there is more than enough to keep us busy when we come down to Herault. The Languedoc is home to some of the most fascinating geological sites in the northern hemisphere, with ancient volcanoes at Cap d’Agde and the Montagnes Noires being all that now remain of a massive chain of mountains that were once comparable to the Himalayas.

This is a spacious, airy house with a good-sized pool, Sky TV, WiFi, decent furnishings and a good kitchen; these all go to make this a great place to spend one's holiday. Poilhes offers some excellent bars and restaurants and the growing tourist trade in the local area has encouraged restaurateurs to be more adventurous in their choice of cuisine and ambiance.

We shall continue to enjoy the delights of this amazing corner of France and we welcome you to do so too.

  • " The house description and photos were very accurate, however the house was even more impressive when we were inside. The property exceed expectations - very homely, lots of space, the facilities were fantastic ( especially the kitchen and shed full of pool inflatables which my nephew loved). It was excellent value for money and the general quality of the equipment in the property was excellent also. The pool was well maintained and very clean, the beds were comfortable and the TV packages allowed us to watch the England game which was very important. The cleanliness of the property on arrival was very clean. Booking procedure and service from SFHV was very easy. 
    Stunning house and location. We had a fantastic holiday. The house and the village were perfect for the requirements of our holiday. My parents enjoyed it so much they want to return again next year! "

  • I would say we loved the actual look of the villa, the beams, the stairwells etc. Everything was very good, all clean and in working order.
