A wonderful week at Las Panas Monoblet

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house is beautiful,quiet and very tranquil. The standard of accommodation is five star. It has a lovely modern kitchen with all modern appliances and well equipped with everything you need. It has plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms and showers all of which are of a very high standard. The lounge area is very cosy with sky TV. The pool area is lovely and well equipped with plenty of outdoor furniture and has a lovely large parasol if you want some shade. I found the information folder very helpful as it was full of local places to visit along with all necessary info about all the household appliances. I would highly recommend this house to everyone.

Beautiful home from home in Monoblet

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful week at Les Planas. The house is charming, quirky, very tastefully decorated and extremely well-equipped for a family holiday. The layout is ideally suited to two families, or a multi-generational trip as the bedrooms are accessed via two separate staircases, affording some privacy, whilst having the advantage of shared reception rooms where everyone can gather together. Air-conditioning throughout will keep the house cool in the hottest weather.

On arrival we found the house in immaculate condition. Charlie, the Housekeeper, was very friendly and available if needed, although we had no need to call her as everything we needed for a comfortable stay was already provided.

Our children loved the pool area (with plenty of toys/inflatables on hand) which has stunning views across the valley. The poolside loungers and furniture were very comfortable and pool towels were provided.

The recently refurbished kitchen and bathrooms are lovely and retain the country charm of this lovely house.

Sarah, the owner, dealt in a very friendly and efficient manner with all correspondence from the initial booking onwards.

Overall a very positive experience and a property we would recommend if you are looking to get away from it all in a lovely quiet spot. The Languedoc Roussillon is a beautiful area and there were lots of interesting places to visit nearby - we enjoyed the Bambouseraie near Anduzes, the Pont du Gard, Uzes and the Grotte des Demoiselles (a stunning cave).

Wonderful place, beautiful house and pool.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our kids and family friends, what a perfect place for a group of us to holiday together. The rooms were all beautifully appointed and the terrace for barbecuing along with fantastic pool meant all our holiday needs were more than catered for. The local village was ideal for popping to the bakery in the morning and for a sundowner or two in the evening but we really didn't feel much need to leave the house! Would absolutely recommend and hope to visit again.

An oasis in Monoblet

  • 5 of 5

What a glorious stay! This house is perfect for a family holiday. We spent a wonderful time enjoying the pool, having long barbecue lunches and then sleeping like logs in the comfortable beds! We hope to return very soon to this piece of heaven in Monoblet.

Lovely house, lovely village, lovely region. Hadn't been to the Cevennes before and was taken a back by its beauty. Lots to do and see locally. Who knew that bamboo ( La Bambouseraie) could be an attraction!! Further afield Pont du Gard and Montpellier Zoo are well worth trips. The house is as described, with lots of space (and steps!) and well appointed. It was perfect for us - 6 adults and 2 children (under 10). The kids loved the pool, the local wildlife, their bedroom and the swing. The selection of outdoor spaces were ideal for relaxing in; especially when trying to escape the sun and the heat. The restaurant in Monoblet is well worth a visit, as is a daily trip to the boulangerie.

One note:

We were very careful that the main front door was always locked and that we (young and old) paid attention when exiting via that door, as vehicles did travel very fast down the narrow road outside. Maybe a warning sign on the door would be a good idea?

Owner's Response: Dear Andy, Thank you very much for your review and we're delighted you enjoyed your stay and the local area. A note about the front door is in the house information book but a sign on the inside of the door reminding guests to be careful is a good idea. Thank you for your feedback. Kind regards Sarah
