SECLUDED VILLA, LARGE GARDEN AND POOL WITH PANORAMIC MOUNTAIN VIEWS.

Soubes Villa Rental Photos and Description

3/4 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8 including sofa bed

Our villa 'La Lavande' sits on the edge of the unspoilt village of Soubes, which nestles in the foothills of the Cevennes 45 minutes from Montpellier and the coast.

With 3/4 bedrooms, (plus log cabin) open-plan living area with log fire and extensive garden and fenced pool (8M x4M) it is an ideal location for a peaceful family holiday. The open log fire provides additional comfort for out of season holidays, as the area is ideal for trekking and cycling.

There are many beautiful walks, and a riverside path leads to the village with its small shop and friendly cafe/restaurant.

The medieval town of Lodeve is 6km away with market, shops and restaurants.

3 Golf Courses nearby, closest at Beziers, then Cap d'Agde and Fontcaude.

Water sports are available at the Lac de Salagou with bathing or canoeing on the nearby Herault River. Try wine tasting at the numerous local vineyards. Alternatively, sit and relax in the sun by the pool or read a book in the shade of the garden and enjoy the stunning views.

A fantastic holiday!

  • 5 of 5
This holiday was pure luxury. Could not have asked for a more relaxed and peaceful setting. The property has everything that you could possibly need from pots to half a dozen blow up lilos.

The pool was kept crystal clean and the house is only a 15 minute walk from the centre of the village which allowed me to eat out and to buy the all important French baguettes for a great start to the morning.

I would, without hesitation, recommend this to anybody looking to enjoy a weeks holiday in the South of France.

A superb villa in a wonderful part of France

  • 5 of 5
This property was a real surprise, a wonderful little gem nestled in the hillside above a sleepy little village in the Herault. Fully equiped with everything we needed to make it a stay to remember, from the well equipped kitchen to the wonderfully comfortable sitting room to the cool welcoming pool with its array of loungers.

A great jumping off point to explore this most secluded part of France with its amazing birdlife (Buzzards, Golden Aurioles and Vultures), great food and wonderfully friendly people, it's all there.

Drive through the eye wateringly scenic gorges or laze the lunch hour (or two) away in a cafe and I guarantee that you will want to come back.

Fully recommend to anyone

A pleasant villa in a wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5
The position of this property, on the hillside above - and overlooking - Soubes village, is really wonderful. To complement the elevated position, the garden is a lovely place to be, with mature plants, a variety of seating areas (a large dining table under the trees, a small cast iron table by the pool, a stone table on the edge of the garden, overlooking the village, and another table on a balcony/terrace outside the living room with panoramic mountain views), as well as the good-sized pool, table tennis table and petanque court. It would be very relaxing to spend your entire stay here, serenaded constantly by the insects, but the area is too good for that. There is so much to see and do - walking, cycling, villages, hills, gorges, coast, Montpellier, Millau, etc. - that most people could happily settle here for several months. The house itself is a clean, light, decent space, well stocked with everything you could need, whatever the weather (which, for our fortnight stay, was wall-to-wall sunshine - a couple of afternoon storms aside). The walk into the village of Soubes is a pleasant 15-20 minutes, much of it alongside the river. (We enjoyed the walk in with our daughters - aged 6 and 8 - to fetch bread for breakfast each morning.) The village itself is attractive, with a well-stocked small shop and good cafe-restaurant. All in all, we would highly recommend this property. We generally try to stay somewhere different each year but are seriously considering a return visit to La Lavande.

Ideal Holiday Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This villa was wonderful. It was clean both inside the property and in the surrounding grounds. The gardens and pool are well kept too. There is plenty to do in the area e.g. canoeing, pedalo, walking, it is easy to reach by air/hire car or if you are driving and it is also handily located - 10-15 mins walk from Soubes where there is a friendly restaurant and a boulangerie. We would recommend it to anyone who wants to relax or have an active holiday with the fmily or their friends.

David and Samantha (three teenage children)

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic holiday at this villa, it was very well presented,clean and had a beautiful pool which we used to the full. We stayed with another family but felt there was plenty of space. The children loved the table tennis while we very much enjoyed charming walk down every morning to the local village of Soubes(very pretty) to get our fresh croissants for breakfast.

The beds were very comfortable and it was very peaceful, perfect for a good nights sleep. Nothing more is needed than a good book and a glass of wine while enjoying the view over the valley.

On the trip down it was great to stop and admire the Millau Viaduct and the trip to the clear waterfalls of Cirque de Navacelles is a must.

I would certainly say this villa offers excellent value for money.

Tranquil heaven overlooking peaceful countyside

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic place! It provides exactly what is says on the tin and we were never disappointed having been there three times already and due to go again this year.
Whatever your mood or the weather may require this villa caters extremely well for all your everyday needs and then a bit more. The housekeeper is a West Country couple just down the road and very helpful and knowledgeable. Shopping at the hypermarket in nearby Lodève is very convenient and easy (free parking) with market days on Saturdays and Tuesdays during the summer season. Montpellier has a market every day except Saturday. Interesting places to visit are too numerous to list here, it all depends what you are looking for: a chic seaside at La Grande Motte or yachting at St. Cyprien, Roman architecture at Nîmes or the Cathar heritage in Minerve and elsewhere. A food and drinks trail might lead you from Roquefort where they make wonderful cheese to Marseillan where they make delicious Noilly Prat.
Would I recommend this villa? Definitely!

Soubes is a pretty village in the wine growing region of Languedoc Rousillon where narrow sreets with flower laden balconies lead to a shady square with cafe/restaurant and small supermarket. There are mountain views all around and the ancient market town of Lodeve is only 6 km away. Many beautiful walks including a botanical mountain path are all close by and stunning scenery including the dramatic Cirque de Navacelle where you can bathe in rock pools of crystal clear water from the mountains is only a short drive away. Montpellier and the Mediterranean coast is only 45 minutes by car with golf courses and several good beaches and numerous seafood restaurants. The whole area is studded with sleepy villages set in lovely scenery.

Other Activities: pedalos on Lac de Salagou, wine tasting in local vineyard (1km)

Small Christmas market in Soubes village usually the first weekend in December.
