We have been to Villa Karli three times and cannot recommend it enough. We were looking for a relaxing homely holiday villa and Villa Karli ticked the boxes.
It is amazingly equipped for families with toys, swings and books. It has a comfy living room with a great dining area if not warm enough to sit out on the front or back terraces. The use of a bbq is lovely and The pool is well kept and clean. The villa was spotless and well equipped.
The village is what you would expect in the rural area of France.. A lovely bakery and small store that sells the essentials as supermarkets in the bigger towns nearby. Plenty of great places to dine out and the owner gives a great info pack with the local knowledge.
The area has lovely wine which I would recommend trying!!! Perfect sitting on the front terrace sampling the local wine!!
We walked everyday around the local village by the vines and visited nearby villages. Capestang was a real favourite as was Valras the nearest beach!
We look forward to our next visit!
Just returned from 2 weeks at Villa Karli. There were 7 adults and 2 children aged 4 years and 18 months. We had a wonderful family holiday! The house is so well equipped for children. Our grandson loved the brio train set! It was a great way to keep him happy during the hot afternoons when everyone wanted a rest. Loads of other toys, games ( garden Jenga anyone?) and books and pool toys! Our granddaughter especially loved the baby swing and the paddling pool! The pool was perfect for the family- our grandson regained his confidence with some arm bands and regularly wore himself out in the pool while the adults played volley ball in the pool with the beach balls provided. Spare car seats meant we could take the grand kids out without moving them from our son's hire car. Shopping was easy at the large Intermarche in Capestang (including fresh oysters!) the small shop in Creissan sold some fantastic cheeses and pork sausages. Capestang became a favourite for our runners in the family to run along the Canal du Midi. Bastille Day celebrations in Creissan, St Chinian and the fireworks in Capestang were great fun! The canal locks at Beziers are not to be missed! The local boulangerie has a fantastic bread and pastry selection. The local Cave is worth a visit for tasting and buying very good wines! The Wifi enabled our son to keep in touch with his lab and we could watch le Tour on the Internet! I was grateful for the quick cycle on the dishwasher! The notes provided give details of many places to visit and things to do. We were able to do things together and in smaller groups. We especially enjoyed the BBQ! Miles came often for the pool and was very helpful. I couldn't care less about the decor in the bathroom. It felt very much like a family home and I would return again.
