Overview

Exclusive Recommended

This townhouse in Languedoc has been recently restored to the height of elegance. Originally built in 1882, its new design is all refinement, paying tribute to the past with chandeliers and statuary - très français! Just outside the back door is a cool blue saltwater swimming pool, and mature gardens beyond. You can cook outside in the summer kitchen (with its own gas hob) for a casual meal, or gather in the dining room for a black-and-white affair.

A large group won’t feel cramped in this home, which extends across three levels (the second level has its own lounge). Four of the seven bedrooms have the added privacy of ultramodern en suite bathrooms. Juliet balconies on the second floor lend even more elegance to an already impeccable interior.

You can walk to the town of Lamalou, just a 10 minute amble away. Thermal baths have operated here since the 13th century, so it’s a beautifully relaxing holiday no matter the time of year. Situated midway between Carcassonne and Montpellier, this holiday home has access to the best of the Languedoc-Roussillon wine region - head slightly toward the coast, and you’ll have dozens of winemakers’ wares to sample.

  • A complimentary bottle of wine is waiting for you at this townhouse in Languedoc!
  • Lamalou’s restaurants, spas, and shopping are only a 10 minute walk away.
  • The interior design is both fresh and classic - it exudes “luxe français.” Everything has been lovingly updated, sparing no expense.

What you should know…

  • The property is spread over three levels - make sure your guests are comfortable with stairs.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.

The Region

Languedoc-Roussillon is one of those areas of France where you can feel like you’re totally cut off from the rest of the country. Commercial tourism has been very slow to capitalise on the region, meaning you can still enjoy a slice of authentic French rural life at its finest. A mixture of landscapes also makes it a great place to visit, with a good stretch of coastline offering a totally different experience to more bucolic interiors. Whatever you’re looking for, our range of villas and chateaux in Languedoc means you can get exactly the kind of holiday you want with accommodation that’s perfectly tailored to you, your friends and your family.

Reviews

  • A resounding success

    Posted by Mr & Mrs Bovington on 27/08/2014

    A resounding success thanks in large part to the amenities in your house. We knew that finding a home with en-suite accommodation for nearly everyone, similar size double bedrooms throughout, and large enough dining areas was a big ask, but your house had it all.

  • Simply perfect

    Posted by Mr & Mrs Groome on 27/08/2014

    We love France and your house is just one of the reasons. A day sampling wine in the vineyards then relaxing by the pool with a BBQ – perfect.

  • Ample space for our party

    Posted by Mr & Mrs Smart on 27/08/2014

    Although we were a large party there was ample space both in the house and garden for everyone. The town of Lamalou is surprisingly lively and we could walk back in 10 minutes if we had too much local wine.

  • We will be back

    Posted by Mrs Harris on 27/08/2014

    What a wonderful holiday, your house manger was great showing us around and we soon settled into the French way of life. The UK TV was great for the boys as they could watch the World Cup. We will be back.

  • Stay in a real Chateau

    Posted by Mr & Mrs Mortimer on 27/08/2014

    We really enjoyed our holiday at your house and felt we were staying in a real French chateau. You have thought of everything and the BBQ was just superb.

  • A relaxing pool and garden

    Posted by Mr & Mrs Woodland on 27/08/2014

    We arrived and were just amazed by your house – its really beautiful. The pool and garden were just perfect for relaxing and yet the area had plenty to keep us amused.
