This is a beautifully relaxing fully enclosed private walled 7 Bedroom Mediterranean Villa with green lawn and well stocked garden, including a Fig tree, Pomegranites, Jasmine and 2 Olive trees, tucked away behind entry gates and with plenty of secure off road parking in the drive. The garden has an automated sprinkler watering system to keep it fresh and green all summer long. At the rear of the house there is a large gated swimming pool (12metres by 6metres, gently sloping shallow end with steps and optional shade- perfect for children and non confident swimmers, and 2 metres at deep end perfect for diving) with pool house (toilet, shower, sink, drinks fridge), electric sockets, lighting for evening relaxation as well as lights in the pool for night swimming. You can get out of the sun and relax with a cold drink in the large pool seating terrace area overlooking the pool with sofa, chairs and 2 tables. There are also many sun loungers to lay and enjoy some of the 300 sunny days the area has each year!

To the front of the property there is a lush green garden and lawn, with a 250 year old olive tree and a fig tree. The newly renovated top of the range kitchen opens up onto the front terrace where you will find seating and both a covered and open terraces along with a dining table and chairs. the interior of the house comprises of 7 Bedrooms - 1 Super King with air conditioning, 2 King Size bedrooms with Air conditioning, 1 King Size Bedroom with pedestal fan, 2 large double rooms with 2 single beds in each - both with air conditioning - and a travel cot with mattress that can be put into the 7th Bedroom which is currently converted into an office space with desk, also pedestal fans are available to put where required. We are happy for you to use the double inflatable bed to put into the single bedrooms (or any other room) if you wish to extend occupancy at no extra cost - but you would need to provide your own bedding and towels, and bear in mind the facilities (such as chairs, seating, kitchen utensils) are only in place for 12 people.

Downstairs, the kitchen leads into the dining room and lounge through hidden sliding doors where there is a further set of double french doors which open up from the large lounge and dining area onto the shaded terrace. The lounge has a very big white leather sofa and you can watch Freeview English TV or French TV, or a DVD (many DVDS are there for all ages) from the wall mounted television. There is also a secondary mezzanine lounge with a further large sofa where you can quietly relax and read a book from the well stocked book shelf with the air conditioning on.

On the ground level there is a family bathroom which comprises of toilet, walk in Italian shower (with a solid shower door) and sink. In the utility area which contains some food storage area there is an entry door to the side of the property and large drive which can comfortably park 6 cars without obscuring your view from the terraces. In the utility are you will also find a washing machine and tumble dryer, a further toilet and separate shower. Upstairs on the first floor there is a toilet with sink, and a family bathroom with a separate shower and bath, bidet and double sinks.

5 of the bedrooms are on the first floor, the Cot room and office bedroom and the king sized room with Air Conditioning are on the ground level, and both over look the swimming pool.

The whole villa has electric solar powered shutters on each door and window for complete security when you go out - as well as to ensure the bedrooms are cooler and completely blacked out to ensure a good nights sleep, they can also be opened slightly on vent if you wish to have a little morning light and breeze.

For the children there is a very large 3.5m trampoline with net which you are more than welcome to use - but it has been well used by our own children and is at your own responsibility to ensure safety and care during use of the children.

The kitchen is newly renovated and refurbished with a top of the range Schmidt kitchen, Granite worktops, 2 ovens and has a large double American refrigerator and Freezer with filtered water dispenser and ice dispenser (both crushed and cubed), as well as a secondary large fridge and freezer so you can store many cold drinks and food at the same time. And also a 64 bottle temperature controlled wine cave for Red & White wine. There is large metre long Induction hob with room to sit around the cooking area as well as a Granite topped breakfast bar and 5 chairs, highchair, children's plates/cups and glasses, everything you will need to eat and drink from or with and Nespresso coffee machine.

The Kitchen and Pool area have Bose speakers that operate via Apple Airplay through your devices - which is also connected to the Television in the Lounge so you can pick your zone for music to play.

This property is in a rare location, no more than 4 miles from the sea, secluded but not isolated, and has great travel links (rail, cycle, airport, station) to pretty much anywhere.

It has undergone under renovation and updating over the last year and now the downstairs is completely modernised, fully repainted with ceramic parquet flooring throughout, new Schmidt kitchen with brand new appliances, full granite worktops throughout, recessed ceiling with spotlights, and state of the art technology BOSE sound system set into the ceiling. Its absolutely amazing!

Please note - Although not overlooked, the house does have a small infant school behind it (children 3-6 years old) and in term time you will hear small children playing outside on occasion during the days Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday. (School day finishes at 4.45pm, and there is no school on a Wednesday).

The pool will be open from around May 12th until end of September.

About Leanne Hindle

We are a young family with 3 children who moved to France in 2009, we love our home and our village - and we hope you do also.

Leanne Hindle purchased this Villa in 2011

Why Leanne Hindle chose Vendres

This property is in a rare location - it has a wonderful warm feel that struck us immediately when we found it. We moved to France in 2009 and fell in love with the country, we wanted to look for somewhere that was warm, no more than 4 miles from the sea, was secluded but not isolated, and had great travel links (rail, cycle, airport, station) to pretty much anywhere - and we were lucky enough to be looking at the right time and found this house. It has undergone under renovation and updating over the last year and now the downstairs is completely modernised, fully repainted, ceramic parquet, new Schmidt kitchen with brand new appliances and state of the art technology sound system. Its absolutely amazing and we love it.

What makes this Villa unique

Its in a quiet village that has all amenities, walking distance to bakeries, parks, a few bars, the village market and is close to the beach - my husband and daughter cycle there!. Also close enough to be convenient to the Polygone shopping centre, activities, and large supermarkets but without being so close that you are bothered by noise and traffic. The house is not overlooked, it is in the best road in the village, and the neighbours are wonderful.

The Villa is totally enclosed and gated offering you total privacy. The Village of Sauvian is a typical untouched and unspoilt french village which still manages to maintain this whilst offering essential amenities. If you are able to take the time to walk around the village and enjoy a drink at the wine bar you will see the architecture is amazing, the way of life is cheerful, relaxing, friendly and laid back. There is so much to do so close to the Villa, but far enough away to not feel like you are on a holiday camp, there really is something for everyone down here, we have lived here many years, and have still not yet managed to do everything and see everything we want to!

                                                                    First impression was "Wow". Everything we needed was provided. Ideal location with local shops within walking distance. Very short drive to wonderful beaches. 6 adults and 8 children virtually lived outside in the glorious sun for two weeks. A special thanks to Leanne for providing lots of toys, pool inflatables etc which the children enjoyed playing with. Loads of kids and adults dvd's for those who wanted to get away from the sun for a short time. Leanne had certainly thought of everything to make our stay most enjoyable. Our email communication after booking and prior to our arrival removed any doubts that I had that we had made the perfect choice for a large family holiday. The information on the Sauvian Villa app was indeed mind blowing. Covered everything you needed to know regarding operating electrical appliances, what to do and where to go, where to eat, where to shop and lots more. The quantity and quality of the information available to you was unbelievable. Pool and pool area is fantastic and was well used by all of us from early morning until late evening. Covered terrace area provided a marvellous setting for al fresco breakfasts, lunches and dinners. We had a fantastic holiday and have no hesitation in recommending this Villa to anyone looking for a spectacular family holiday in a marvellous location. Many many thanks Leanne for your hard work and help which resulted in a memorable holiday which was enjoyed by all of our family. Very sad to leave.
