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.

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.

  • Amazing time!

    Posted by Val on 07/09/2019

    Lovely & large villa on the outskirts of Lamalou-Les-Bains. Very comfortable and perfect for two families, we enjoyed our time there. The pool area is great fun but be careful the insects are voracious! No parking on site but local street parking adequate. Set in is a quiet, slightly run down spa French town, but decent shops and a good restaurant or two, not expensive either, but is also a recuperation centre. Good location with plenty to do nearby

  • Amazing stay!

    Posted by John on 27/08/2019

    We stayed a week in August 2019, we were a group of 11 people including children (youngest was 8) and we all had a wonderful time. The house is very spacious and well located, near the village but quiet and private.

  • We had a great time!

    Posted by Williams family on 17/07/2017

    This is a real home, cared for and with everything you need. The garden is beautiful, we almost didn’t need to go out on trips. We did however and the beach, Montpellier and Carcassonne are all within reach. There are too many vineyards to visit also.

  • Perfect family holiday!

    Posted by Turnbull family on 21/06/2017

    Lovely home and lovely weather and south of France region, perfect holiday.

  • 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.
