About Judith Howarth
My husband David and I live in the UK and have a student rental property business, renting to students in Brighton and Guildford. Having spent most of our holidays in France with our children when they were younger we decided to buy our first home there in 2010 FR9145 and our second in 2014 FR22821. We pride ourselves on giving a superior service in our property business and have many great reviews from students and holiday makers alike.
Pool / Spa
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We stayed here in order to attend a party in the village. We found the villa to be in an excellent location, quiet, well equipped and a delightful pool area. We will return at a future date.
Home from home in Margon
This is the third time we have stayed in this property and it was yet again a lovely holiday experience. Much of our time was spent on the great outdoor area, with dining, relaxing, and enjoying the pool. The house is suitable for all ages, and our young grandsons love the lifestyle too. There are lovely walks through the vineyards from the doorstep and the village facilities are good. Children's play area, boules, and all weather multi purpose area for football, badminton, volleyball etc. It is a great place to recharge the batteries, whilst feeling very comfortable in the house.
D and L , Lake District
We stayed in this Villa in 2013 and loved it - but we wanted to try other areas of France . Having done so , we are now happy that this is the best accommodation and we love the village/area . Note , the terrace and pool are exceptional . Judith and David are a pleasure to deal with and we will be back here for our future holidays !
We had a lovely week in this villa. This villa is as described, it has everything you would need for your holiday. We found it very peaceful and relaxing. There are plenty of activities to be found 1/2 hour away. The children really enjoyed the jets in the pool. Communication with the owners was excellent. Can't wait to return,
Great Family Villa
We (2 adults and 3 boys ages 11,13 & 14) stayed at the villa for 2 weeks and had a brilliant holiday. The villa is decked out to a very high standard and the owners provide all sorts of extras to make the stay easy.
There really is everything you could ever need and more.
The pool is a good size - the boys loved it. The patio is again equipped with loungers, chairs, tables, umbrellas - it is a lovely place to relax.
Only 5 minutes drive away is Roujan where the big supermarket can be found.
The villa is in a beautiful wine producing area yet in very easy driving distance to some great sights. We visited Carcasonne - fantastic, Beziers - a lovely city, Pezanas - great market town, Grotte des Demoiselles - amazing caves not to be missed. The coast is less than an hour away - Marseillan is beautiful.
We would thoroughly recommend this villa and would love to go back again. The owners, Judith and David, have been very helpful and easy to deal with throughout the booking, holiday and afterwards.
We had a great Summer holiday this year in Margon. The house is as described but better than expected. As others have said, the outside area is a highlight and was perfect for our 4 kids. The pool is ideal and our 6 year old went from being a tentative swimmer to a confident, happy swimmer over the fortnight. The interior suited us fine and the villa is very well equipped. Supermarket and boulangerie only 5 minutes away and, our personal favourite, Lac Salagou only a half hour drive. You have to go...great, safe open water swimming. We have great memories of all sitting at the outside table playing cards into the evening.
Communication with the owners is first class and the flexible changeover days has made a huge difference to us. They are very helpful. How much did we like it? Well within three weeks of being home we booked up for next year.
The lovely long sandy beaches of the mediterranean are about 30 mins away. With Vias, Portiragnes, Serignan and Valras Plage probably being the closest.
The nearest airport is Beziers being 25-30mins away. Other nearby airports include Montpellier, Perpignan and Carcasonne all being about an hour from Margon. The TGV from Paris stops at Montpellier, Agde and Beziers. By car is easy and motorway all the way either via Lyon or the more scenic and mountainous route down through the Volcans, Cevennes etc and over the famous Millau Viaduct. Although there is a bus service into Margon we would highly recommend a car.
It is a 5 min stroll into the 2 local reataurants. The nearest village with a good selection of local shops is Roujan which is 1.5 miles away, and now has a large SuperU. The beautiful historic market town of Pezenas is 7 miles away with its narrow streets, many restaurants and bars, craft shops, boutiques, cafes, etc. It also has a fantastc Saturday market. Pezenas also has a variety of supermarkets, diy stores, garages, etc.
The village of Margon has a most beautiful 13th century chateau. The grounds of which are open to the public on certain days and are well worth a visit (guided tour included). The village has 2 restaurants open lunchtime and evening The Belle Lurette for informal dining and The Auberge de Chateau for more formal dining. The locale is famous for its wine and there are many Domaines where local wine can be tasted and bought. The local Chateau de Margon wine is available through Domaine D'Arjolle in Pouzolles which is a nearby village.
The area is perfect for cycling as the scenery is beautiful with its vineyards and chateaux and there are many lanes off the beaten track to explore.
The Canal du Midi is nearby and is also well worth a cycle/drive along as the there are many very picturesque villages to explore along the route.
The stunning scenery of Lac Salagou about 25 mins away is well worth a visit. It is popular for swimming, sailing and windsurfing also for walking, mountain biking and fishing. There is also kayaking available on the River Orb.
Carcasonne and Montpellier are both about 1 hr away and well worth visiting. Montpellier is the place if you want serious shopping. Carcasonne is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
