Outside Details

Great villa for family holidays in the South of France

The 'piece de la resistance' of the villa, which has a strong Moroccan influence with it's emphasis on the 'inside-outside' living, is the wrap around terrace (86m2!) and the stunning views. Partially covered and partially in the sun, it has an alfresco dining area and a fabulous outside relaxation area with sofas and coffee tables.  

The terrace affords views over the green 'ravine' towards Magalas and the village church tower, and when the moon is up it is simply breathtaking. When you are standing at the front door, because the property is on a residential street, you are totally unaware of the huge landscaped garden that is hiding on the other side.

Private gated swimming pool of 9m x 4m with Roman steps for easy access. The approach to the pool is down a winding path from the villa - this means it is 'up hill' to come back!

There is a small summer kitchen next to the pool with a sink and some crockery, a small fridge and small charcoal BBQ. There is also a dining table with chairs for an alternative lunch or drinks arrangement.

Pool terrace with sunbeds and parasols

Poolside solar shower

Lovely large terraced garden with plenty of shady places to relax or even to dine plus a flat area for children to kick a ball around.

Client Comments

A lovely villa with an excellent pool in a good location.South France Villas Client Mr G, August 2017
This villa was excellent. Patrick and his wife are wonderful people and seem to take real pleasure in knowing that you have enjoyed your time there. Although it is on a residential street, it is quieter than some we have stayed in that are 'in the middle of nowhere '. The location is good, just a couple of minutes walk (next to a road) to a reasonable supermarket and an excellent butchers/bakers. The pool is in a lovely position in the huge garden! The area around the pool have some kind of shade,whatever the time of day. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our time here and coupled with the fact that the price is so reasonable, I would not hesitate to go back. Family G, South France Villas clients July 2016
We thoroughly enjolyed our stay it was ideal for the grandchildren.  The area is lovely and quiet, with the people of Magalas being extremely friendly.  The butcher is highly recommended, with the best pork we've ever had.  The baker was superb and provided an excellent "gateau anniversaire" for a family birthday - just about all you could want in the village or nearby, with the delights of Pezenas a short drive and larger stores in Beziers if needed.  Canoeing on the river was good fun, the beach at Valras highly recommended and extremely safe for small children.  We enjoyed an excellent holiday in one of our favourite areas and we'll be going again when we can.  Chris and Christine
