What a charming 'quirky' French villa. My husband and I stayed with our 2 teenage children for 10 days during August. A great location for visiting the many places in this part of France, within 30-50mins there are beautiful towns and pretty villages, the coast with lovely beaches and fishing ports, the Camargue and larger towns like Nimes, Arles and Montpellier. We flew to Montpellier which is just 25 mins max from the villa. The owner lives in the villa for most of the year so it really is a home from home with personal touches everywhere, based in a residential part of the town within walking distance of a bakery and supermarket, very close by car is another larger supermarket and the town centre itself where there are some restaurants, bars and regular markets, we didn't walk into the main town from the villa, however made good use of the barbecue in the evenings and spent time relaxing by the lovely pool.
My wife and I stayed with our two children in this fabulous family home for two weeks in August. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the owner who is extremely friendly and provided us with lots of very useful information about the local area. The house is fully equipped for a family comprising three comfortable bedrooms, lounge, kitchen, bathroom and utility, with a very clean pool, ping pong table, hammocks, beautiful gardens and an outdoor eating area with barbecue. It is approximately 15 mins drive to beautiful golden sandy beaches in Carnon which never seemed over-crowded even in August. A short drive further takes you to La Grande Motte which again has great beaches and many places to sit and enjoy a meal which cater well for families. Montpellier is about a 25 minute drive or you can take the tram there and Nimes is about a 50 minutes drive. Lunel has a fantastic hyper-market which is 5 minutes from the house by car and there is an excellent boulangerie locally with the most delicious baguettes and pastries. The town itself doesn't offer much for holiday-makers but it is so close to the beaches and other beautiful towns that this did not matter at all. We enjoyed the comfortable home-from-home experience of staying in a well-equipped house that was close to some of France's most beautiful cities and beaches with glorious weather.
