We had such a fabulous holiday here last year that we returned for 2 weeks this summer. Our girls (13 & 15) said at end of the holiday that they weren't ready to go home, could we come back for 3 weeks next summer!!
We enjoyed our second visit even more than our first visit.
The villa is fantastic, 3 comfortable bedrooms, lovely spacious kitchen, dining & living room area with comfy couches and arm chair, perfect for relaxing. The air con in bedrooms was great addition this year!! We brought with us a selection of TVs programs/movies on a memory stick, and were able to watch on the large screen TV. (Now we want a TV like this at home!!)
The pool its fantastic. It is salt water low chlorine. It is beautifully maintained, so clean. We had hours of fun in it. And no red eyes or any other reactions common in regular chlorine pools!
Pezenas is a wonderful town. Very scenic and lots of good places to eat. We walked in every day.
Some of our favourite places to eat were Le 5 Gallerie, restaurant at St Germain hotel (few minutes walk from villa), Le Cour Pavee & Hana Sushi. We loved L'Allemand patisserie, Les Glaces de Sophie and Coco Mango.
We made 3 trips to Cap D'Agde. Twice for full day at Aqualand. During 1st 2 weeks July the French children still in school, and it wasn't busy. We had some cloudy weather in afternoon of our second visit and the small crowd got even smaller, resulting in no queues at all!! We were able to head straight back on most rides only needed the time to climb the stairs. As result girls got in all the big rides 5-10 times!! A tip, buy half price ticket for second visit BEFORE 5pm on first visit.
We finished up each visit with dinner at La Toscane restaurant, about 10 min walk from Aqualand. Girls were delighted to have big bowl of good pasta after full day in waterpark. The marina area is great place for a walk and browse in the evening. The beaches also looked lovely.
We also went to Le foret d'acrobats, near Montagnac, about 15-20 mins drive away. Girls enjoyed the zip wiring there. It was quite challenging but lots of fun. This was also very quiet at this time of year.
We also visited Montpellier, which is a gorgeous city and well worth a visit. We parked at Odysseum shopping centre and got tram in. We did some good shopping in Odysseum before coming home.
Bastille day fell on last day of our holiday. There was brilliant atmosphere in the town and the fireworks were very impressive.
One of our best holidays ever. We hope to return.
We highly recommend this villa and this gorgeous part of South of France.
Villa is in a great location with excellent facilities. Temperatures were in the high 30's during our stay so the airco in the bedrooms made sleeping very comfortable. No need to open the windows so no mosquitoes to bite during the night!
We had no children with us and chose this villa because of its proximity to Pezenas. It was very easy to stroll into town for either lunch or dinner with no need to drive. The villa is also well placed to drive to other attractions. Coast within 30 mins and also Beziers. Try to visit the 9 lock system on the Canal du Midi in Beziers- well worth seeing.
All in all a very relaxing holiday and the next time we visit Pezenas we'll return to this villa.
Everything was exactly as described and the directions for the villa and the walking route for the town straightforward.. The villa was really well organised and clean. The kitchen was particulary well equipped which made it easy to cook as did having a supermarket a few minutes away.. Having a good internet connection and satallite TV was really helpful. The pool was fantastic particulary when the temperatures reached 37C. This rental property is the best one we have ever stayed in in France. Pezenas was lovely and a real find and it made evenbetter by being in easy walking distance from the villa.

Extremely well equipped and furnished, this property is ideally placed to enjoy the delights of Pezenas itself and the wider area. And the close proximity of Leclerc made shopping for food so easy.
A delight to find comfortable furniture, both inside and out, as well as beds with great mattresses.
The kitchen was especially well equipped which the cooks in our party really appreciated.
We enjoyed the pool almost every day - great for cooling off. The room fans also made a difference, especially at night.
We also made good use of the TV for football and the start of Wimbledon and the free (and extremely fast) wifi was great for keeping in touch.
The local housekeeping team were great as was the information provided to us prior to our arrival.
Really can't think of anything which could improve this as a holiday home - except our ability to come here more often!!
