Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome Walk to Beach Walk to Village All Bedrooms En-Suite

Just a few steps from one of the Mediterranean’s finest coastlines, Villa Verre et Mer offers guests stunning contemporary design in an enviable setting near the fishing town of Sète in the beautiful Languedoc region.

With luxury style in mind, the owners have created a modern masterpiece with the striking use of glass contrasting gentler tones of wood and local natural stone. The impressive open-plan living and dining room is filled with light from the floor to ceiling sliding windows that lead out to the decked terrace. The sleek open-plan kitchen adds to the contemporary vibe of the living space where family and friends can relax in fine surroundings. Step outside and you can be enjoying evening aperitifs in the outdoor lounge before dining al-fresco by the barbecue in this fantastic setting.

There are five bedrooms over the villa’s three floors, each having their own Plasma TV, I-Pod docking station and luxurious bathrobes and toiletries in their ensuite bath or shower rooms. Enjoy magnificent sea-views from the first-floor master bedroom with its waterbed and beautiful bathroom and step outside to relax on the upper terrace which can also be reached from another sea-facing double room.

Other exciting features include a cinema room, a sauna and a fitness room and there are many other activities from table tennis to the paddleboard, kayaks and wakeboards that are available for guests to use. In addition, the owners can arrange an extra package for you that includes boat hire and jet-skiing or parasailing during your stay.

Not forgetting the incredible swimming pool with its unique glass wall where you can cool off on warm summer afternoons. Just a few steps below the swimming pool is a delightful garden where guests can soak up the sun or perhaps seek shade under the ancient olive tree, gazing at the swaying palms.

It’s just a brief stroll from Villa Verre et Mer to the sandy beach, part of a formerly wild yet still beautiful coastline. There’s an excellent beach restaurant here, open in the summer months, which also hires out sun-loungers or you may just prefer to find your perfect spot for a day relaxing by the sea with lovely views of nearby Sète and Mont Clair.

Sète is a characterful fishing village only 5km away where you can dine in some amazing restaurants, explore the canals or take a boat trip to the lagoon, Étang de Thau, famous for its oysters that you will no doubt try during your stay. Other wonderful places to explore include Mèze, Pézenas and the city of Montpellier whilst there are many other great seaside towns with brilliant beaches alive with summer activity.

This region is ideal for those seeking adventure with watersports, activity parks, tree-top climbing, go-karting, horse-riding as well as excellent golf courses or local châteaux offering wine-tours for a gentler day out. Indeed, Villa Verre et Mer is perfect for those seeking relaxation by the beach as well as plenty of ways to experience all that Languedoc has to offer in this brilliant part of southern France.

What you should know…

  • The fifth ensuite bedroom is on the lower ground floor – ideal for an accompanying nanny or perhaps the kids seeing as it’s near the cinema room!
  • The beach restaurants tend to be open from April to September, depending on the season. In the height of the summer it may be advisable to book ahead

Villa Verre et Mer is set in an enviable location just a couple of minutes stroll from a beautiful Languedoc beach and within walking distance to a couple of beach restaurants open in the season (usually April to September but this can vary).

In a residential area facing the sea, you only need to step out of your home, wander across a picturesque park and within less than 250m you’ll be stepping on the soft sand. This part of the coastline, arguably the finest in the Mediterranean, stretches several kilometres and there are lovely views towards the town of Sète and Mont St-Clair. You’ll also some beach restaurants including one which is extremely popular with locals and well as tourists, serving great food and wine and also has its own private part of the beach with sun loungers and umbrellas.

Sète itself is an authentic fishing town full of character and only 5km away by car. Watch fishermen bring in the catch of the day at the harbour then enjoy dining in one of the wonderful fish restaurants. Explore the local streets and take a boat trip along the many canals. The town is also backed by the Étang de Thau, famous for its oysters that are found across the region. Also, head to Mont St-Clair for incredible views, the hill around which Sète lies.

This is an area alive with activities. Nearby you will find tennis, horse-riding, go-karting, water parks, activity parks as well as magnificent wine tours of local châteaux. Golf lovers have a choice of courses in the Languedoc, including the brilliant Golf Cap d'Agde (22km) and there are plenty of marked walking and cycling trails. Adventurers will love the tree-top climbing centre near Montagnac at La Forêt d'Acrobates (36km), where you can enjoy amazing views from some of the courses as well as enjoy zip-wires, archery, canoeing, kayaking, climbing and caving.

The city of Montpellier makes for a brilliant day trip with its historic old town, pretty boutiques and excellent restaurants whilst other interesting towns and villages are within a short drive such as Mèze (25km), Pézenas (35km), Montagnac (40km) and Béziers (45km). Marseillan Plage (15km) and Cap d’Agade (23km) are other seaside resorts with plenty of watersports and activities nearby. 

Other places worthy of a day trip include the magnificent fortified town of Carcassone (125km), the impressive Roman aquaduct at Pont du Gard (120km) and one of the most beautiful villages in France, Saint Guilhem le Désert (64km); all three of them are UNESCO World Heritage sites.

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.
