Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Aniane - House W/ Pool Near Montpellier

4 BR + 2 BA + House Can Accommodate 2 Families. Great for Kids.

This large house is in a beautiful country setting in Aniane, France and close to many fabulous natural and historical landmarks and only 22 miles from Montpellier. It is well set-up for families with kids and could house two families for weekly rentals. Here you will relax in the calm and have fun!

Large villa (2583 sq. ft.): 4 + br, 2 + ba

Layout

Ground floor: 3 bedrooms (A sleeps 2, B sleeps 1, C sleeps 1), kitchen, pantry, dining room, living room, laundry room, and 1 bathroom (with separate shower and bathtub), 2 restrooms. Terrace is off dining room and kitchen.

Upstairs: a large bedroom (sleeps 2), a large playroom (stocked with toys! and a foldout couch that can sleep 2), and bathroom.

We also have a foldout single bed (sleeps 1) and two queen air mattresses (sleep 4).

Sleeps 6-10 people.

Interior amenities: piano, WIFI, DVD/VHS player and huge flatscreen tv (which can be placed upstairs or downstairs), all kitchen accessories and nice appliances including bean-grinding espresso maker; baby equipment available (crib, highchair, potties, porta-crib). All main windows and doors have electric rolling shutters (volets).

Exterior: on 1/3+ acre, with large garden, pool, lots of trees (hazelnut, walnut, olive, plum), huge trampoline, swing set, and partly covered outdoor terrace with bbq and pizza oven. The pool has a large step area, which is great for children, and is regularly maintained. The pool area has chaises and pool toys. The pool and trampoline part of the garden is gated off by a security gate and fence. The property entrance has a remote controlled security gate and intercom.

While benefitting from the amazing tourist attractions in the area, the house is away from the main thoroughfare, situated on a quiet cul-de-sac, near an open-space preserve. You will be in a charming, southern French small-village setting in the calm, but with all modern comforts and with nice appliances. Only a 30 min. drive from Montpellier, and only 3 & 1/2 hours from Paris or the CDG airport by TGV.

You will be located in the pretty, historic village of Aniane (founded in 777 C.E.), known, among other things for the Mas du Daumas Gassac winery and the Abbey of Saint Benoit. The area boasts a wonderful marché, and amazing restaurants. You'll be near the incomparable St. Guilhem-le-Désert and the must-see Grotte de Clamouse (4 mi.); Pont du Diable / Gorge de l'Herault (2.5 mi.); St. Jean de Fos (potter's village) (3 mi.); and, Gignac (3 mi.). 22 miles from Montpellier.

There are many activities in the area: tourism, hiking, canoeing, wine tasting, horseback riding, restaurants, and swimming. Aniane is on the Saint Jacques de Compostelle pilgrimage trail. Have fun exploring the area: 45 minutes from Palavas (and its lovely beaches), one hour from Aigues-Mortes, and from Sète and the Frontignan beaches, one hour from the Cévennes and from the Cirque de Navacelles, 40 minutes from the Cirque de Mourèze and from Knights-Templars village La Couvertoirade, 1 & 1/2 hours to Saintes Maries de la Mer and to the Camargue, 1 hour from Nimes, 1 hour 20 to Pont du Gard and to Arles, one hour from Roquefort and the Viaduc de Millau ...

We are happy to send you more photos and more information upon request.

We would also consider a long-term exchange for a home in the San Francisco Bay Area.

You want the charm of the south of France with marché and small businesses but all the comforts of home?

You want proximity to the city, fabulous restaurants, and lots of activities but peace and quiet at home, on a cul-de-sac?

You want to be able to walk out the door and hike or bike into nature? You want things to be easy?

Then this is the house for you.

About Lael and Marc Bajet

We're a Franco-American couple, who love our home in France but currently live in California. Marc, French, is an Engineer. Lael, American with French citizenship, teaches high school English. Our boys Raphaël (11), who loves nature and writing, and Olivier (10), who loves sports and science, were born in Montpellier and attended local schools until 2012.

Lael and Marc Bajet purchased this house in 2008

Why Lael and Marc Bajet chose Clermont-l'Herault area

We spent over a year looking at properties before choosing this house, which was far above the others. We love its location and its amenities. We love its trees and its light. We love being able to walk into the village. We love going for a swim in the middle of the night. We love how amenable our house is to impromptu invitations; we love BBQing on the terrace and eating outside half the year. We love our huge walnut tree that lets in the sun in winter but that shades our house in summer, keeping it cool. We love walking down to marché Thursday mornings and buying eggs laid yesterday, local cheese, and local produce. We want you to love it as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

For summer rentals, this large house has accommodated 2 families (10 persons).

For long-term rentals, this is a great place to bring your family, to stay for a while and explore the beautiful area.

This is an ideal home for a family with kids due to its size and amenities. In addition to the pool, giant trampoline, sandbox, and swing set, the children's rooms and playroom come equipped with toys of all kinds: Lego, Playmobile, huge Thomas train set, and books and videos in English.
