Client Comments

Domaine Lucienne ist ein idealer Standort um das Languedoc zu erkunden. Wir haben uns auch mit 8 Personen so wohl gefühlt mit dem genialen Swimming-Pool, den vielen Schatten- und Sonnenplätzchen, dass wir viel gar nicht viel unternehmen wollten und lieber Stationär blieben. Gut ausgerüstete Küche und Grill. Einzig die Espressomaschine hat gefehlt. Geniale Abendstimmungen. Der Vermieter ist jederzeit hilfsbereit bei Fragen oder Problemen und gibt gerne und gute Hinweise zu Sehenswürdigkeiten oder Restaurant/Einkauf. Die Strasse (D909) ist je nach Windrichtung recht gut hörbar, für uns aber absolut nicht störend. Caspar and Family, Germany, July 2016 English Translation Domaine Lucienne is to explore an ideal location to the Languedoc . We also checked with 8 people so comfortable with the brilliant swimming pool , the many shade and sun cookies that we much did not want to do a lot and remained rather steady . Well equipped kitchen and BBQ . Only the espresso machine was missing . Ingenious evening moods . The owner is always helpful with questions or problems and likes to give good information on attractions or restaurant / shopping . The road ( D909 ) is quite good audible depending on the wind direction for us but absolutely not disturbing.
Thanks for a wonderful staying and a good hospitality.  The house was nice, the pool was nice and cooling in the heat, so was a trip to a vineyard and tasted good wine.  We are now driving back to Norway - 2-3 days in the car.  Thanks for this time. Merci!  From the Guest Book:
The Henderson family, from London, spent a very enjoyable fortnight at the villa provided a great base for a family holiday.  The table tennis and the pool proved very popular with everyone.  Meals under the vine were also most enjoyable.  The Owner made some great recommendations - the market at St Chinian was well worth a visit - we also had a very good lunch there.  Pézenas was lovely - a beautiful old town with lots of boutique type shops. Canoeing at Roquebrun was great fun. We did the 5km run which was just right for beginners, althought there was more avaialble for the more adventurous/experienced. We visited Serignan beach which was very pleasant, but our favourite was Cabanes de Fleury - not too busy, great sand for castle-building and not at all commerical.  Take a picnic and plenty of water!  We also paid a visit to the lake at Salagou, very picturesque, but we probably should have investigated the best place to head for before setting off. The pizzeria next door to the supermarket does very good food - don't be put off by the surroundings. All in all, we have had a fantastic time and the Wi-Fi worked for us too! Merci Beaucoup! Family Henderson, South Fance Villas Client, August 2012
This has been a great week.  In Norwary it has been raining and cold this week and we have been at this lovely villa.  We had wonderful weather - no rain.  Children and parents enjoyed the pool and the surrounding area.  The house is excellent - relaly would recommend this place.  Thank you for the stay.Cecile, Hans Mikkel and family, July 2012
Our time at St Suzanne was, without proper description, amazing. The landscape and surrounding villages were a treat to explore; the wine Co-op in Puimisson, the market in Pezenas, the beach and Cap D'Agde etc. We were comfortable and had everything we needed to make our experience a memorable adventure for us all. Maggie, Ottawa, Canada, Sept  We would like to say what a fantastic holiday we have all had. The pool is a god-send in the heat. We loved the rustic atmosphere, very relaxing.The ping-pong table provided hours of entertainment for all the group. Thanks for a wonderful week! Lucy, Gabrial, Ben, Phillip, Patrick(G'dad), David, Gemma, Sept  We have had a wonderful time here, the villa is lovely and the pool was divine! There is lots to see and do around the area as well as relax beside the pool. Thank you for what was a fabulour week! Emma, Al, Sarah, Sean and Sara, Aug 2010 We thank you for providing such a wonderful home, it made an excellent base for our family holiday! The Berka family, July  Wonderful location to explore Southern France. Kids love the pool, spent many ahppy hours there! We didn't find any area around that was not spectacular-we enjoyed walking to Puimisson each morning for bread and rolls. We found the town very nice and helpful - thanks for a great stay! Mr Amrein, New Hamshire, USA, July
