Very well equipped, central location & spacious
We stayed for 11 nights mid Sept 18. Villa is very well equipped, spacious and offers a central location to lots of the sights & places to visit. Lovely pool and plenty of space to enjoy the lovely weather. Nice and cool inside. Sky TV (basic) and lots of DVD's, CD's, games and books for you to enjoy. Perhaps TV could be a bit bigger as the lounge is a lovely big spacious room (nit picking!). Midges a bit annoying as sun went down but only outside. Apparently not usual.
Would recommend and would stay again for sure.
A great villa in a great location with really helpful owners in the background
The villa is in a really great location for exploring the area and it is much more spacious than the pictures indicate! The villa is in a nice private location, quiet and tranquil with views across the countryside. It is presented to a high standard with a nice relaxed modern feel and is really well equipped. Thomas and his partner have really thought about what makes for a great home away from home - although we stayed here as a couple we could see the villa would also be be great for a family too. There is plenty of space in the villa and grounds to spread out in - space is not an issue here!
They have really made it as comfortable as possible and it will have a really wide appeal - there is great wifi should you need it, satellite TV a wide range of books & board games on hand, should you need any other distractions!
The pool area is immaculately well maintained with lots of plants and borders adding to the greenery. It is a great sun trap with views to the hills in the distance and was an ideal to relax with a book and a drink after a tough day sightseeing! There are also plenty of other spots around the garden to sit, eat and relax - all well looked after.
The owners have the other half of the villa but were very unobtrusive and we often forgot we were sharing the space.Thomas was our main contact during our trip and it was great to be able to chat with him when we did see him about our stay and of the places we visited and to get his take on other things to do and try in the area. He also does a fab job about telling you about the area before you arrive with a really helpful local guide he has put together that helps with all the local knowledge you will need. We found it really helpful about Lodeve as well as the wider region when planning what to do on our trip.
All in all we would really recommend this villa and we would definitely look to return if we found ourselves back in the region. For us it was a relaxing base for exploring the wider region and its lovely villages and towns: St Guilhem-Le-Desert for example must be one of the prettiest villages anywhere and is definitely worth a look.
Having also rented villas in the past for family holidays with our daughters we can seen this property would equally work for a longer family holiday too.
We had a great stay here and hope you will too.
Fanatastic Holiday Villa
We have just returned from a weeks stay and had a thoroughly good time. The owners Thomas and Frank were very friendly and helpful with lots of knowledge of things to do and see. We were a little worried about a salt water pool but it was lovely, not salty at all. It was very hot during our stay and as there is no air conditioning it did get a little stifling inside at times as I suffer with an allergy to mosquitos so couldn’t have the doors/windows open much. Another stronger fan would have been nice. Having said that, it is such beautiful villa in a wonderful location with fabulous hosts, I would love to return and will be recommending it to my friends and family. Thank you Thomas once again for a great stay!
Thank you Jonathan for your nice review regarding the villa .Hopefully we will see you on a future vist
Pristine, well equipped, beautiful location
What a gem! A very well maintained villa, with pristine pool and gardens. The interior is clean, comfortable and equipped with all the facilities required to make it feel like a real "home-from-home". Located on the edge of Lodeve offering spectacular views of the surrounding area. Thomas & Frank were friendly, but discreet hosts, with plenty of excellent tips on stunning places to visit and the best local restaurants. L'Herault is a beautiful region with a laid back vibe, you just can't fail to relax on a holiday here. The only word of caution I would offer is to be aware the walk down to Lodeve from the villa is steep, obviously not too much of an issue on the way down, but the way back up could prove tough, especially in the current high temperatures. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and family.
Thank you for your great comments regarding the garden and villa.You were excellent guests
to have around.Im pleased you enjoyed your time in the region as its a great area to explore Hopefully we will have the pleasure of seeing you on another occassion at the villa in the future.
It just does not come any better
This is a beautiful spot - sitting on the veranda eating supper by the lovely pool, with a backdrop of mountains is superb. If you're walkers there are many, many mapped-out walks ranging from easy to pretty tough! Lakes, mountains, forrests - you choose.
Many towns and villages to visit, or a tram ride to Montpelier, which is a fairly unique city with old and new; huge plaza full of cafes to the ancient streets and squares.
The two hosts have got it spot on; welcoming, always there to help, but never intrusive, always respecting their guests privacy.
Then, of course, its France - food, wine, sun. Perhaps the best recommdation is that this was our sixth visit!
Thank you Jan,Ed,Jen for your wonderful review,we really appreciate it and that you find villa 4 saisons an excellent place to stay whilst enjoying your time in the south of France.
Immaculate house, pool and garden!
This property is probably understated in the description. The house is elegant, well equipped, comfortable and a delight to use. The pool is kept to the highest standard and the garden and patios are a gardeners delight! Tom and Frank are available to provide advice if needed but unobtrusively care for the pool and garden daily- they take a huge pride in their villa. Thank you to this superb team.
