Property Summary

Beautiful Designer Villa with an Amazing Pool in Pezenas, South of France sleeps 8.

Possibility of flexible arrival days outside July/August, subject to availability

This contemporary designer family home in Languedoc, South of France is just 2 minutes walk from the lovely Renaissance centre of Pezenas. The holiday villa is a recent conversion, with a fantastic open plan living room, dining room and kitchen with heavy glass doors which give out onto a splendid terrace overlooking the pool.

The modernist house features extensive use of glass. The living room glass wall opens 9 metres to allow a seamless transition to the outside terrace where you can dine alfresco under the stars at the 8 seater custom made Indonesian teak table, framed by Thai temple lions overlooking the lap pool and Mediterranean garden.

The house comprises 350 m2 of living space over two storey and features a 15 metre lap pool. It is a rarity to find a pool where one can actually swim! Not only that but it is also fenced all around - fantastic for families with young children for whom pool safety is imperative.

The holiday villa is also ideal for modern, open plan entertaining; the kitchen is somewhere a Professional Chef wouldn't be ashamed to be seen, or to cook in.

4 large bedrooms and 3 large bathrooms (2 en-suite) with Villeroy and Boch fittings, Italian glass mosaic tiles, all have full baths and two with separate shower cubicles with large 17cm shower heads. 4 wc's in total - one independent in the upstairs corridor off the living room.

There is no better place to enjoy the soothing and relaxing mix of East and West ambiance. Stage your unforgettable lifestyle holiday here surrounded by art, antiques, water hyacinth, teak and designer furniture by B+B Italia and Philippe Starck. Swim or play in the 15 metre lap pool; soak up the South of France sun listening to cicadas; dine under the stars; and toast Bastille Day fireworks from the comfort of your terrace. Walk into town to the bustling aromatic market and dine in award winning local restaurants. Experience the colour and noise of summer Nocturnes in the heart of the Centre Historique when Pézenas parties and shops close at midnight - all just a stroll away. This villa is the perfect location to explore the Languedoc region of the South of France.

From the Guest BookWe all really enjoyed staying at the Villa for our holiday and exploring the Region.  Many thanks for the great preparation and presentation of the Villa which made our stay most welcoming. We all said that we would like come back and would not hesitate to recommend to our friends and family.  Many thanks for making our stay in the South of France memorable and enjoyable.  Chris & Family, May 2018
I just wanted to drop you a mail on behalf of myself and my family to say thank you for all your help and assistance throughout our holiday. You were so helpful with any queries we had. Gilles & his driver Olivier were fantastic, very professional and pleasant to interact with. Thanks also to Yvonne for finding villa Ava in the first place, it was exactly what we were looking for, lots of space yet in the heart of the town! LM - South France Villas Clients, June 2016
Thanks so much for your helpful hints. We had a wonderful visit to your area and covered from Carcasonne to Nimes/Pont du Gard, which were two highlight days. We enjoyed Restaurant L’Entre Pots, but thought that Le Pre St-Jean was terrific - ate there 3 nights! In addition to your notes, the Keyholder was really helpful and responded immediately whenever we had a question.  Everything went very well. Pezenas is charming.  Barnett Party, South France Villas Clients, Oct/Nov 2014
