Secluded Villa With Private Orchard and Pool

Family-friendly villa in Lodeve with water park
A perfectly located, secluded villa with a well stocked orchard and a private pool, Les Hirondelles is a 15 minute walk from the historic village of Soubes with a local shop, post office and vibrant Cafe which serves excellent food and wine. A 5 minute drive brings you to the large town of Lodeve with a wealth of shopping, restaurants and a popular Saturday market. The house is also conveniently located for access to the airports of Montpellier, Beziers, Carcassonne and Perpignan, and via motorway and train links to the coast and the rest of France.

The house serves as the perfect touring location to access the Languedoc's wealth of rich cultural heritage, from the dream cities of the Midi, such as Carcassonne and Aigues Mortes, to the fortresses of the Knights Templar, and to caves once occupied by pre-historic man, and more recently by Resistance fighters during the Second World War.

Less than an hour's drive to the beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean coast, the house is also close to the beautiful waterfalls at Ganges, and the spectacular Pont du Diable, as well as the famous lac du Salagou. It also provides perfect access for wildlife and walking enthusiasts who benefit from access to the rocky, medieval landscape of the plateau, to the forested mountain ranges close by.

For those interested in French culture, the house is conveniently located close to many local vineyards which produce some of France's best wines. There are also lots of opportunities to sample local cheeses, and benefit from fabulous local restaurants.

For those inclined towards a more adventurous holiday experience, head north to the spectacular city of Millau where you can parascend over the highest bridge in the world, visit Valras Plage, where you can jet ski in the crystal clear water of the Mediterranean, or go white water rafting. And in the evening, visit the bustling night life of Montpellier.
Rooms open to patios. Bathrooms include a combined bath/shower unit and bidets. Cots/infant beds are also available.

4/5 Good

Served our purposes well.
House well equipped and comfortable. Access to UK programmes via Sky box appreciated, but no Wi-fi a bit disappointing. A few points I feel are worth making - I hope you’ll take them in the spirit they are offered: Lounge seating a bit uncomfortable. Pool clearly has a leak and needed topping up daily. Some light switches not very secure - one in particular is for the short hall leading to the 2nd bedroom. We enjoyed our 10 days here, allowing us to visit Soubes again after selling our villa there 2 years ago and may well return sometime in the future. Thank you. Bob Beaty

5/5 Excellent

Les Hirondelles August 2019
This was our first stay at Les Hirondelles and will definitely be going back again. The property and location was as described and had everything we needed for totally relaxing holiday! The views from the property were nothing short of spectacular, watching the sun going down whilst enjoying a wine or two made it all the more special! The pool was great and was used everyday. The location couldn't have been any better, so much around to see and do, something for everyone and all within easy reach! Yes there was no WiFi but that was not a problem for us as most mobile phone companies offer plenty of data and even our teenage daughter struggled to use up her allowance! I would highly recommend Les Hirondelles Dan and Rachel Knight

5/5 Excellent

Stunning villa
We absolutely love this villa, the property itself is superb, the swimming pool, the garden and orchard, the location is perfect for a bit of everything. Sightseeing, beaches, city life, countryside, historical villages and much more. This was our second stay at this villa and we will be back again.

3/5 Okay

Lovely location in the South of France
This place was perfect for our first holiday abroad with a baby, as it was all on one level, and had a kitchen suitable for cooking meals etc and had a high chair and cot. The pool was perfect for cooling off on hot days and the loungers were great for sunbathing. The location was brilliant - hidden away in the countryside, yet you could be in a town within 25 minutes (walking) or 5/10 minutes driving and lots of places to visit nearby. If I could improve our stay, I would say the place would benefit from having wifi and updating the bathrooms, but other than that, the place was lovely.

5/5 Excellent

A clean and pleasant property with beautiful views and pool.
Property was clean and tidy when we arrived, pool is delightful and we loved the beautiful views over the valley. It is a fifteen minute walk into Soubes, which is a lovely village with a great restaurant and grocery for your morning baguette!
