owner profile
Hi, I quite like to travel and have been searching for many years to find the right location to build a property. I had the opportunity to visit Croatia and Portugal and then the Languedoc and was blown away by the beauty. I grew up in California as a child and missed that climate in the UK. I really enjoy this part of France as the weather reminds me of my childhood, yet has all the cultural elements that makes life interesting as an adult. I have always been keen on going on adventures and this project was no exception. My father suffered a heart attack and changed my perspective on what was important in life and we both spent time together back in 2005 visiting the building project and exploring the area, which made a huge difference.

Why this location?

Back in 2005 I met up with a friendly lady called Sally who lived locally in Lodeve. I was on the quest to find the best location in the area to build a property with the most spectacular views, 'A task too great', you might say. Well, I looked in Portugal, Croatia and last of all, in the Languedoc and have not regretted it one bit! It was more work than expected and I had the usual problems with builders, but eventually found a little place in heaven. If I had the choice, I would spend more time there, where the climate is great and the relaxed pace of life helps you recharge your batteries. I still think it is the most lovely part of this beautiful country.

What are the unique benefits of the property?

The villa is in a great location with amazing panoramic views, easy to reach from most airports, with excellent roads. Quiet village location, within easy reach of local amenities. Fantastic places of interest within a few miles and wine and food to die for. The property has some nice touches with paintings done by my family, together with tasteful furnishing and comfortable seating. It is nicely designed with large open areas, a fantastic kitchen and comfortable dining area. The neighbours are very quiet and privacy is assured. The pool is solar-heated and open views towards fields and olive trees await you.

I hope you will have the opportunity to visit this lovely place and share my enjoyment.

    C. Norring July 2011:  My family, friends and I have just returned from our stay at the villa and I just wanted to tell you that we all loved it very much. Although we had high expectations because of your great pictures – our expectations were all met and more. Your villa is just wonderful and Jackie was very helpful. We have had a fantastic time and I will definitely recommend your villa to all my friends.

    " The property description and photos were absolutely accurate. It was exactly as represented on the website. Our expectations were matched in most parts and exceeded in some. The kitchen was so well equipped and so easy for meal preparation. The convenience of having the washing machine in the kitchen was great. The book for guests was very comprehensive. The property was good value for money and we are hoping to rent it again next year! The general quality of the equipment in the house was superior. As was the cleanliness of the property on arrival. The booking procedure and service from SFHV was good as always. We found the village and the location overall just lovely. And many thanks to you for managing and promoting such lovely properties. Thank you so much! "

    We came to this property last year, and it is definitely as represented. It's a good property and seeing as we have been here before, we were pleased to see quite a few improvements. The value is aligned with the cost and is a great house with a wonderful pool setting. Overall this is a good house in a good location, and we will be returning to this property in 2017! Many thanks for your always great customer service!
