We have just returned from a fabulous first visit to St Ferreol. Le Bougainvillae was just as good as it looks in the photos. We enjoyed the gentle, attentive hospitality of Jorge and Ania and appreciated their restaurant recommendations and reservations. The wine tasting was a highlight. St Ferreol is a perfect location to enjoy both exploring the area and spending relaxing days by the pool. There are great restaurants nearby but we also enjoyed being able to cook for ourselves. Good local shops/ markets and a well equipped kitchen made this a great option. We look forward to a return visit.
This was our third visit to St Ferreol, so I guess that speaks for itself. It's one of those places that, once discovered, many families seem to come back to. The owners, Jorje and Ania are really welcoming and helpful.
The Bougainvillaea is one of a group of six gites in a lovely old wine domain that the current owners have brought back into wine production.
We went with our 12-year-old son and my parents and we all loved it. All the gites are clean, spacious and comfortable and well equipped, including wi-fi access and Sky TV. They are also nicely decorated with lots of attention to detail which you often don't get in these sorts of places.
St Ferreol is about half an hour's drive from some nice beaches and just a few kilometres from the lovely town of Pezenas which is a big tourist attraction but in a nice, arty, charming sort of way - think little courtyard restaurants, galleries and antique shops.
Because St Ferreol is such a nice place to relax in and there is a lot for children to do on site (swimming pool, table tennis, trampoline and spacious gardens) you really don't need much more but there are a lot of things to do locally and some good restaurants which Jorje and Ania can tell you about.
Would definitely recommend the beautiful and peaceful place and definitely want to go back.
Ideally located between the Med Sea and the black mountains, this is a wonderfully picturesque region from which to discover the idyllic beaches around Sete, Agde or Marseillan or visit the historic cities of Montpellier, Nimes, Carcassonne or Aigues Mortes.
