June & September: Dear All, I would like to inform / remind you that June & September Months (even May actually) are quite pleasant in South of France. The weather is warm and the nights cooler than in July & August. There are less tourists, as kids are at school. The swimming pool will be at 27 degrees ! Therefore, do not hesitate to take your holidays off-season.
To reply to the most frequently asked questions. There is no additional cost for whatsoever related to the apartment rental (Parking, water, electricity, cleaning at the end of the stay, access to the pool,… are included.). There is only one apartment for rent (Upper level with the terrace on the pictures). The apartment is adjacent to my parents‘ house, and except both of them, there will be no more people/families at the address during your stay.
Can only echo all the other excellent reviews of this property. Not only are Marie-Claude and Gabriel great hosts, they are also great company, we really loved getting to know them. Also, Patrick was the epitome of efficiency and helpfulness during the booking process, promptly answering any question we threw at him!
St Pargoire itself is a delightful village, a fair selection of shops and a weekly market just a 2 minute walk away. Both Boulangeries are superb, with a wide selection of fresh breads, pastries, cakes etc and friendly service. We couldn't choose between them, so alternated between them! The staff in both of the small grocery stores are also very helpful and friendly and between them offer a wide range of good quality merchandise.
We have no hesitation in recommending this property to other travellers.
Just back from a wonderful stay in Saint Pargoire with my husband and nineteen month old son. Marie Claude and Gabriel are excellent hosts, wonderful hospitality, and really made us feel so welcome. We had the wonderful pool all to ourselves and the location is ideal. Our little boy is asking to go back to the pool everyday. Highly recommend this property, and check out the local restaurant Lou Regalou. We will definitely be back.
An excellent location for a quiet break away from it all. The apartment is comfortable and well equipped and the pool is very well maintained. The owners were very helpful and welcoming. The village facilities are close at hand and the restaurant is definitely worth a visit. I'm sure we will return.
Was it as lovely as last time? Yes Where the owners as friendly and helpful? Yes Did we enjoy it as much? Yes.
What can I say that I did not say last time? The pool house. This is fitted out with a table and chairs, a ceiling fan and lights. A perfect place to catch some lunchtime shade if you can not tear yourself away from the pool. The poolside furniture. There are tables and chairs. Trolleys for your drinks. There are reclining chairs, sun beds and reclining sun beds and all fitted out with comfortable cushions. The quantity, quality and diversity of the poolside furniture would put many a so called "luxury" villa to shame.
This place is a must for pool and sun lovers.
Will we be coming back? Try and stop us!

We, my husband and 10 year old son have just returned from a wonderful stay in St Pargoire. The apartment is exactly like the description and photos, really clean with a superb pool and has everything you need plus it's in a great location in the village, walking distance from the shop, restaurant, bar, post office and weekly market. The reservation process was very smooth and any questions answered promptly. We were welcomed by the owners who were lovely and immediately made us feel at home and yet left us to relax and enjoy our holiday. The terrace is great for breakfast and evening meals and has a great view of the countryside.... Saint Pargoire is in a great location for the sites of caves, lakes, rivers for canoeing, Abbeys, wine tasting, art and pretty villages so much to see and with the beach at Meze only 20 minutes away..with all the delicious sea food (the oysters are a must) one week is not enough. We will be back and would recommend this "gem" for all who would like to relax in village life knowing that the sites and cities of Beziers and Montpellier are not far with stunning scenery en route...
In 32 years of renting properties from large villas to flats, this was the nicest cleanest pool in all that time. Worth it for the pool alone. The small private balconey was ideal for breakfast and evening meals alike. The view over the open fields was lovely, and one morning we watched 5 Kestrels (probably a family) working these fields and flying to within 20 feet of us The apartment contained just about everything you could require and was ample for a couple. To also have all the village amenities within a short walk (and I do mean short) was a bonus. Add to that the warm welcome we recieved and that fact that despite being left to enjoy the peace and quiet we knew there was help at hand if we needed it, it made a perfect holiday.
