About the property

All modern conveniences, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, very quiet and green

As you can see on the pictures, the house is a haven of peace for everyone

Quiet and not overlooked, the garden planted with olive trees, palm trees and evergreen oaks is a shelter for birds, squirrels, rabbits and cicadas. You are in the middle of the countryside yet only 500 m from the village of Vendargues and all its amenities (bakery, grocery, pharmacy, etc.) and also close to Montpellier as well as to the beaches, the river, Nîmes, etc.

Fully air-conditioned and South-exposed, the villa is fitted with automatic gate with videophone as well as alarm system to ensure total peace of mind.

You will enjoy a secured 8x4 m pool with removable safety gates and heated from Easter to Mid-October (salt treated).

Fully renovated in 2012 with contemporary careful decoration and fittings, this villa is pleasant and functional for big families, 4 couples, elderly people and disabled people.

This 140 m² single-storey villa on 4000 m² land has been fully renovated in 2012

All modern conveniences: reversible air-conditioning in all rooms and new bedding

3 bathrooms (bath with LED and music), walk-in shower with hydromassage and LED and many storage spaces in each bedroom (the villa is just for you).

Top-of-the-range furniture (3 Cassina sofas), new household appliances, double door refrigerator, coffee machine, Lavazza coffee and espresso machine, stone grill, raclette machine, blender, mixer, wine cellar, washing machine, tumble dryer, etc.

Broadband Freebox with many channels and multimedia (radio, USB port, etc.) and 2 televisions with Freebox connection (foreign channels).

Heated salt-treated 8x4 m pool with removable gate meeting safety standards

250 m² outdoor bamboo parquet floor, 8 sunloungers, garden furniture, outdoor table seating 8, pool toys, table tennis table, boules, bike, barbecue, hammocks, etc.

2 lovely wooden cabins for children with slide, swing, sandbox, etc.

The garden surrounding the villa is 4000 m². Relaxation in a hammock far away from the pool, games for children, the song of the cicadas, siesta in the villa without being disturbed by the ones who want to chat around the table or by the pool, etc.

The sleeping area is separated from the living space

The villa has no direct neighbour: it is surrounded by a private oak forest. You can make noise, play in the pool, you will not disturb anyone. You are not in a housing estate.

When the weather is good, you can organise large receptions: wedding, Communion, birthday, family reunion, etc. For the occasion, we provide extra tables and chairs for free (if they are available).

For Christmas, there are many events in the village (nativity scene, light decoration in the streets and on the houses). A villa decoration contest is organised by the town hall. During its journey on its carriage on the night from 24th to 25th December, Santa Claus gives gifts to the good children. It is an unforgettable time for children and adults.

Fantastic Villa and a fantastic owner

  • 5 of 5

The villa, pool and gardens were excellent. Great for families or large parties. We bought our two labradors with us and Ariane the owner was great with them. She even booked the dogs into the local vets (who were excellent) and she came with us to translate . Ariane was lovely, nothing was too much trouble for her. We would certainly go back. Excellent customer service.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely family experience and would love to go back again. The villa was great and we have a great holiday. Ariane was lovely and welcoming.

For the first time ever we did not want to go home. A place of paradise.

Hidden gem; better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to have been able to secure this rental for 6 blissful months in the south of France with our 2 children who attended a local bilingual school. The home was PERFECT for living and hosting guests for both meals and as overnight guests. The proprietor is beyond fabulous; she was hyper responsive to any property concerns or questions. Photographs don't do justice to how peaceful the property is and a truly relaxing escape.

The property is exceptionally well maintained so for me is was truly a vacation to not have to worry about any maintenance or upkeep and to just enjoy the lovely outdoor area and pool.

Great villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 2 families. The house is very complete with a modern interior and clean. Great pool and garden and very private. Volleybal, tabletennis, badminton possible in the garden so the kids had a great time. Car necessary but many things to see and do within 30 minutes drive. Ariane, gave us a friendly welcome and helped us with information about restaurants and points of interest. We would definitely recommend this villa.

About Ariane Dumas-Calafatis

I am a mother of 2 children. I live in Montpellier.

I love sharing this small piece of paradise with my guests and help them spend good holidays.

Ariane Dumas-Calafatis purchased this villa in 2010

Why Ariane Dumas-Calafatis chose Vendargues

Vendargues is a small village typical from our region: quiet, a few steps away from the sea and the river, with small easy road access to easily visit Montpellier, Avignon, Carcassonne, etc. When the villa is not rented, it is a true resting place for us who live in the centre of Montpellier. The children love biking, swimming in the heated pool, enjoying the outdoor spaces, giving bread to the horses, etc. We play boules, do barbecues with friends, etc.

What makes this villa unique

We love the comfort: there are 160 cm wide beds, new bedding with new pillows. Your nights will be sweet and peaceful without urban noise pollution. Bathrooms are equipped with electric heated towel rails. The villa is very well insulated and equipped with reversible heating (air-conditioning/heating).

The quietness of the garden and the tranquillity of this place offer an ideal place to relax.

Nestled in the heart of a green haven, the village of Vendargues will seduce you. You are within 20 minutes from the coastal beaches, the Espiguette Beach, the beaches of Palavas and the beaches of La Grande Motte.

You are within 30 minutes from the river: Grottes des Demoiselles, Hérault Gorge, Pic Saint-Loup, Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, Lac du Salagou, etc.

Montpellier is 9 km away. It is a must-see and an ideal holiday destination to discover Montpellier which is booming: museums, architecture and all sorts of arts.

Sun, leisure activities, rich architectural and cultural heritage, Montpellier is the art of living

Close to the Cévennes, close to the greatest sites of Languedoc-Roussillon and Provence (Montpellier, Sète, City of Carcassonne, Nîmes, Alès, Arles, Avignon, Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, Aigues-Mortes , Pont du Gard, Bambouseraie d'Anduze, Hérault Gorge, Verdon Gorge, Tarn Gorge, Grands Causses, Millau Viaduct, Grottes des Demoiselles, Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, Cirque de Navacelles, Salagou Lake, Les Baux-de-Provence, etc.), only 15 minutes from the beaches (Grande Motte, Port Camargue, Le Grau-du-Roi, Palavas, etc.) and 10 km from the historic centre of Montpellier for many visits.
