This is a beautiful traditional house. The garage is underneath so the house is on the first floor. It is lovely and cool in the heat as the floors are all tiles so easy to clean too, and there are lots of windows on all sides so they can be opened on the shady sides to allow air and breeze but not direct heat.
It is in a great location as a number of places are in easy driving distance, Meze, Agde, Marseillan for the coast and Beziers, Montpellier, Nimes, Arles for towns and cities and the Camargue/Cevennes/Lac Salagou for nature.
The village of Paulhan itself has lots of amenities inc a number of restaurants and the weekly market whilst not huge or as big as Clermont l'herault, has enough to be able to buy food for a few meals
The owners are very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
If there is a downside it would be the garden. It's very private and lovely to sit in but access is down the steps from the main door so you have to walk all the way round. Not a problem if you're just going to sit out for a while but if eating outside and carrying food plates/drinks etc. It has to be planned. That said, we did it most nights.
We would be more than happy to return and probably will be doing.
We spent a week at this Villa in Cabrieres. It is comfortable and well equipped and with good weather, which we had, the pool was wonderful.
The owners, Francoise and Daniel, could not have been more helpful and were perfect hosts.
The village has a small supermarket where you can buy bread and basic foodstuffs and is only 200 m walk. The restaurant in the village is now unfortunately closed but there are many more in the villages closeby. The scenery is lovely and there are many walks from the village. Cabrieres is a great centre for day trips into the surrounding area which is very beautiful. Do not forget to try the wine at co-operative next door!
