"A very comfortable beautiful villa - a real home from home! Fantastic pool! The villa owners Michel & Claudine were most welcoming and could not do enough for us. We have no hesitation in recommending this property to others, the location is ideal - just enough to get away from it all but with good access to major roads, the nearby beaches of La Grande Motte and Montpellier airport."
