We had a large family holiday, 15 of us spanning 3 generations and this was a great place to stay. Location is great just a 10 min drive from the airport and from the beach, the tram stop is a 2 min walk from the Villa and gets you into Montpellier in around 20 mins. Perols is a lovely little town very quiet but we had a great time at one of the local wine tasting events that are held their regularly throughout the summer.
We arived late and were met by the owner/manager, although they did not speak a word of English, we managed to get the basics from her (with some help from google translate!) and she promised to come back with her son (who spoke excellent English) to go through everything which she duely did.
The Villa is large and had a big enough garden for our group to all be happy, sunbathing, swimming or lazing in the sun under the trees (some of which provide fresh figs!). The pool was perfect, enclosed by a safety fence which kept our son (who has special needs) safe.
A couple of minor moans, none of the bathrooms had locks that were working, one of the oven doors doesn't open fully as it is too close to the back door and the villa was a little dirty but nothing major. There are only 12 'full size' beds (either doubles or singles) the beds that were provided for the children were little more than a cot mattress that was placed on the floor which were not ideal for our 13 and 15 year olds. The mosquitos are quite severe, repellent is a must!
I would definately book again.
What a delightful place to stay! The house is spacious, very clean, well maintained and wonderfully airy; with doors open it stayed cool even in very hot weather so that we didn’t need to use the air conditioning. The pool was lovely and the various outdoor seating options meant that there was always a perfect place to relax in either sun or shade. The owners were so friendly and welcoming, making sure we knew how everything worked and could feel at home and they were quick to respond the only time we had a problem.
We loved the location too. We were just a short walk from bakeries (great for fresh breakfast pastries and bread) and from the centre of Pérols, a proper small French town where we didn’t knowingly come across any other ‘foreigners’ all week. There were various lively events in the town that week, including bull running through the streets and we particularly enjoyed the Wednesday evening wine and food festival with music and dancing. From Pérols it’s just a short distance to some great beaches, the nearest ones easily accessible by bike (another great feature of this rental was the provision of very good bikes), while Montpellier can be reached very easily by tram.
We had a wonderful week and would love to return. Thank you again, Michel and Jacqui.
