Overview

About the property

1Bedroom apartment for up to 3 persons, between sea and mountain

In the heart of the small village of Saint-Pargoire, in the Herault valley, surrounded by a countryside made of garrigue, pine trees and vineyards, this very nice apartment offers a complete open view to the surrounding landscape from its terrace that overlooks the 10x5 m swimming pool (The heating system guarantees 27 degrees from May to September). South-west oriented, it is fully furnished and equipped. Bbq in the garden. Very quiet area.

All facilities in the village (2 Bakeries, 2 Groceries, Newsdealer, Pharmacy, Butcher, Doctors...). Supermarkets and all kinds of shops in Pezenas and Clermont l'Hérault (15 km both).

Good restaurants and wine cellars everywhere in the region. Seafood restaurants in Sète, Mèze, Bouzigues and Balaruc. Numerous local markets in the villages and many interesting sites to visit around: Montpellier, Pézénas, Béziers, Sète, Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, Salagou lake, Clamouse caves, and the cirques de Mourèze and Navacelles...

Swimming Pool: The 5x10 m private pool with additional 1.5 m roman stairs (Depth from 1 m to 1.8 m) is heated at 27 degrees with a Heat pump pool heater. We use Salt water Electrolyser which gives a cleaner and softer water and eliminates inconveniences, such as eyes irritation, dry skin, unpleasant taste…

Shops in the village: All facilities (2 Bakeries, 2 Groceries, 1 Newsdealer, 1 Pharmacy, 1 Butcher, 1 Bar, 1 Pizzeria, 1 Restaurant, 1 Caterer...) are located at 200 m from the apartment.

June & September: Dear All, I would like to inform / remind you that June & September Months (even May actually) are quite pleasant in South of France. The weather is warm and the nights cooler than in July & August. There are less tourists, as kids are at school. The swimming pool will be at 27 degrees ! Therefore, do not hesitate to take your holidays off-season.

To reply to the most frequently asked questions. There is no additional cost for whatsoever related to the apartment rental (Parking, water, electricity, cleaning at the end of the stay, access to the pool,… are included.). There is only one apartment for rent (Upper level with the terrace on the pictures). The apartment is adjacent to my parents‘ house, and except both of them, there will be no more people/families at the address during your stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Des hôtes sympathiques, un cadre reposant, un piscine idyllique. Que demander de plus ? Nous avons passé une très bonne semaine, et nous reviendrons assurément. En tout cas, merci à Marie-Claude et Gaby pour cet accueil et ce séjour "familial". Et, à l'année prochaine pour au moins 15 jours, cette fois.

Laid back and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We spent a delightful week at the end of August staying in this very well equipped 'granny flat' in the quiet village of St Pargoire. We had visited this area many years ago and wanted to rekindle some fond memories. The weather was very hot and we spent our days visiting old haunts in the mornings and lazing by or in the pool in the afternoons.

Marie Claude and Gabriel were delightful hosts who made us very welcome and were always on hand but never intrusive. We slept well despite the heat and had no problems with noise from the pool filter. When booking the accommodation I had only noticed the word 'Parking' on the website and had not spotted the three dots after it which if I had I would have seen that the car had to be taken off site and parked a couple of minutes walk away in a public car park . If I had noticed this I probably would have discounted the property and that would have been a great shame as it really was not an issue.

Nice location but ...

  • 1 of 5

The owner’s response to my review of the apartment in St Pargoire is most illuminating. Point by point, my positive comment in the visitors’ book stands to all as a clear demonstration, however insincere, of my continued effort to diffuse a difficult situation.

The unpleasant personal rating bestowed upon us cannot be regarded as objective in the absence of a single example in justification, unlike my own observations, supported by honestly recorded instances of the owner’s mother’s conduct. In respect of the owner’s claim that the pool filtration plant is inaudible (“except to you”), I feel compelled to ask why does he think that the matter was ever raised and to advise him that by reference to the visitors’ book he will see that we are not the first to raise the issue. The apology for the narrowness of the local roads, inferring falsely that we had found fault with them, is pure obfustication. Over forty or fifty years of holidays in France we have become familiar with village driving conditions and given that we were using a small sports coupe, there were absolutely no concerns. Further obfustication is provided with the inference that we had complained of the noise from the village fete. The truth is that following another sleepless night due entirely to the noise from the pool filtration machinery, I asked the owner’s mother for the second time if anything could be done about it. Surprisingly she insisted that the noise was not from the filtration equipment but solely from the village fete. This was the occasion, referred to in my original review, on which she became personally abusive.

The owner refers to my “erratic behaviour” in attempting to excuse his mother, yet he can provide no example in validation of this criticism. Further, since he was not present at any time during the whole period in question his apparent knowledge of all considered events must be regarded as unoriginal and therefore unsound.

Owner's Response: Dear Valerie, I will stop the argument, as there is nothing to argue with you. All the other 5 Stars comments since 2011 speak for themselves. You are an isolated case, and I can assure all our future guests that you will definitively remain an isolated case.

Very relaxing and enjoyable stay in St Pargoire

  • 5 of 5

Can only echo all the other excellent reviews of this property. Not only are Marie-Claude and Gabriel great hosts, they are also great company, we really loved getting to know them. Also, Patrick was the epitome of efficiency and helpfulness during the booking process, promptly answering any question we threw at him!

St Pargoire itself is a delightful village, a fair selection of shops and a weekly market just a 2 minute walk away. Both Boulangeries are superb, with a wide selection of fresh breads, pastries, cakes etc and friendly service. We couldn't choose between them, so alternated between them! The staff in both of the small grocery stores are also very helpful and friendly and between them offer a wide range of good quality merchandise.

We have no hesitation in recommending this property to other travellers.

A Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a wonderful stay in Saint Pargoire with my husband and nineteen month old son. Marie Claude and Gabriel are excellent hosts, wonderful hospitality, and really made us feel so welcome. We had the wonderful pool all to ourselves and the location is ideal. Our little boy is asking to go back to the pool everyday. Highly recommend this property, and check out the local restaurant Lou Regalou. We will definitely be back.

Excellent apartment well equipped with superb pool

  • 5 of 5

An excellent location for a quiet break away from it all. The apartment is comfortable and well equipped and the pool is very well maintained. The owners were very helpful and welcoming. The village facilities are close at hand and the restaurant is definitely worth a visit. I'm sure we will return.

Our second visit

  • 5 of 5

Was it as lovely as last time? Yes Where the owners as friendly and helpful? Yes Did we enjoy it as much? Yes.

What can I say that I did not say last time? The pool house. This is fitted out with a table and chairs, a ceiling fan and lights. A perfect place to catch some lunchtime shade if you can not tear yourself away from the pool. The poolside furniture. There are tables and chairs. Trolleys for your drinks. There are reclining chairs, sun beds and reclining sun beds and all fitted out with comfortable cushions. The quantity, quality and diversity of the poolside furniture would put many a so called "luxury" villa to shame.

This place is a must for pool and sun lovers.

Will we be coming back? Try and stop us!
