The garden surrounding the villa is 4000 m². Relaxation in a hammock far away from the pool, games for children, the song of the cicadas, siesta in the villa without being disturbed by the ones who want to chat around the table or by the pool, etc.

The sleeping area is separated from the living space

The villa has no direct neighbour: it is surrounded by a private oak forest. You can make noise, play in the pool, you will not disturb anyone. You are not in a housing estate.

When the weather is good, you can organise large receptions: wedding, Communion, birthday, family reunion, etc. For the occasion, we provide extra tables and chairs for free (if they are available).

For Christmas, there are many events in the village (nativity scene, light decoration in the streets and on the houses). A villa decoration contest is organised by the town hall. During its journey on its carriage on the night from 24th to 25th December, Santa Claus gives gifts to the good children. It is an unforgettable time for children and adults.

About Ariane Dumas-Calafatis

I am a mother of 2 children. I live in Montpellier. I love sharing this small piece of paradise with my guests and help them spend good holidays.

Ariane Dumas-Calafatis purchased this Villa in 2010

Why Ariane Dumas-Calafatis chose Vendargues

Vendargues is a small village typical from our region: quiet, a few steps away from the sea and the river, with small easy road access to easily visit Montpellier, Avignon, Carcassonne, etc. When the villa is not rented, it is a true resting place for us who live in the centre of Montpellier. The children love biking, swimming in the heated pool, enjoying the outdoor spaces, giving bread to the horses, etc. We play boules, do barbecues with friends, etc.

What makes this Villa unique

We love the comfort: there are 160 cm wide beds, new bedding with new pillows. Your nights will be sweet and peaceful without urban noise pollution. Bathrooms are equipped with electric heated towel rails. The villa is very well insulated and equipped with reversible heating (air-conditioning/heating). The quietness of the garden and the tranquillity of this place offer an ideal place to relax.

                                                                      Host who was helpful and accommodating.

                                                                      However the location was disappointing.

                                                                      We loved the villa and pool. We also enjoyed the area

                                                                      Fantastic Villa and a fantastic owner

                                                                      Christine T.

                                                                      The villa, pool and gardens were excellent. Great for families or large parties. We bought our two labradors with us and Ariane the owner was great with them. She even booked the dogs into the local vets (who were excellent) and she came with us to translate . Ariane was lovely, nothing was too much trouble for her. We would certainly go back. Excellent customer service.

                                                                      The villa was excellent and exceeded our expectations.

                                                                      Wendy F.

                                                                      For the first time ever we did not want to go home. A place of paradise.

                                                                      Hidden gem; better than the pictures

                                                                      Johan S.

                                                                      We were fortunate to have been able to secure this rental for 6 blissful months in the south of France with our 2 children who attended a local bilingual school. The home was PERFECT for living and hosting guests for both meals and as overnight guests. The proprietor is beyond fabulous; she was hyper responsive to any property concerns or questions. Photographs don't do justice to how peaceful the property is and a truly relaxing escape.

                                                                      The property is exceptionally well maintained so for me is was truly a vacation to not have to worry about any maintenance or upkeep and to just enjoy the lovely outdoor area and pool.

                                                                      Great villa

                                                                      Ruud V.

Volleybal, tabletennis, badminton possible in the garden so the kids had a great time. Car necessary but many things to see and do within 30 minutes drive. Ariane, gave us a friendly welcome and helped us with information about restaurants and points of interest. We would definitely recommend this villa.
