“A quality villa in a beautiful location.”
Reviewed 22 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Villa Picholine is well above average in terms of quality and attention to detail by the owners who are resident in an adjacent property. We tried the villa out for a week following a recommendation and it has certainly gone onto the list of places for a return visit. The villa is immaculate and in a beautiful location. Whilst we were only looking for a quiet and restful few days, should it be required, there is very good access to many places of interest within a short drive. It was very handy having the owners nearby to provide the occasional tip on local matters. Highly recommended.

“Absolutely wonderful”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A first class villa in a truly beautiful part of France. The accommodation was outstanding from the tasteful decor to the well equipped super kitchen, a spacious and modern bathroom, cosy and comfortable lounge and a lovely main bedroom. The added extras of herbs, spices, condiments, cleaning items and not forgetting a bottle of the local wine was a bonus and not one you get in many holiday rentals. The garden is a little haven of heaven, beautifully designed and very private. There is an abundance of books, dvd's, games (indoor and outdoor) to keep you entertained. My partner and I are great walking enthusiasts and the owners were extremely helpful and forthcoming with their help and advice. If you want to stay in this part of France there is no better place than Villa Picholine. We have travelled to many parts of Europe and stayed in many places but this beats them all!

“Didn't Want to Leave!!”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed end of July/Aug for 2 weeks. Wonderful, modern bungalow near the owners house (friendly/helpful/unobtrusive). Very well equipped with plenty of crockery etc. wi-fi, tv/dvd library plus the all important air con, which was great for a decent nights sleep! Lovely walk-in shower and linen/towels changed after a week. Nice covered terrace which was great to sit out on for breakfast and evening meals. My youngest daughter especially liked the swing chair, tucked away behind an olive tree near the bottom of the garden. Based in village with boulangerie, tennis courts and playground with table tennis and fitness equipment. Best to do these in evening when cooler! Only 5 mins drive to St Chinian with a few shops and supermarket and great market on Thursday and Sunday.
Great base for exploring the area. About 30 mins to nearest beaches (we preferred river swimming) and Beziers/Narbonne. Minerve and Pezanas also attractive places to visit. Our favourite activity was to cool off in the stunning, warm rivers at beautiful places like Roquebrun, Gorges d'heric and Reals.

We had a great holiday and really didn't want to leave! Can't wait to return......

“Everything and more!”
Reviewed 30 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the villa, it was a great base for trips to the coast and inland, and we had some good tips from the owners Alyson and Bryan.
The facilities were really good and whilst we thought we wouldn't need the air conditioning we certainly appreciated having it as the temperatures soared.
The gite is modern and is kept incredibly clean by the owners, the garden is just beautiful.
Had a great time, the area had everything we needed to enjoy our holiday.
Thanks to our hosts Alyson and Bryan and good luck with your building project, we'll follow your steps on Facebook.

“Perfect holiday accommodation for visiting the Languedoc region”
Reviewed 27 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Villa Picholine was ideal for us (a couple with adult daughter). We couldn’t have asked for better accommodation.
It was very well presented and very comfortable.
It was fitted out and equipped to a very high standard which met all of our requirements.
The Villa, accommodation, equipment etc was totally consistent with description.
The location was perfect to explore the magnificent Languedoc region of southern France.
The hosts were very warm and welcoming and lovely to deal with. They were extremely helpful with all requirements and advice on what to see and do.
The arrangements for finding the place and arrival and departure were very well and professionally managed.
The property was very good value for money and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to the possibility of returning in the future.
