This contemporary villa, walking distance to the charming village of Sommières, creates a haven for family and friends to relax in complete privacy, with all the luxuries for a fantastic holiday.
The Villa la Paillote is set over two levels, overlooking a stunning and serene garden, with its saltwater swimming pool and shaded terrace. The terrace has garden furniture to accommodate up to 8 people, so that family and friends can convene to enjoy those sultry summer evenings on the French coast. The outdoor dining area nearby – also 8 spaces – enables mealtimes by the water, catered for by the summer kitchen and its plancha and barbecue. Besides relaxing by the pool, convening by the terrace, and enjoying the shade of the century-old olive and pine trees, there are plenty of facilities available to keep young and old occupied : from table tennis and a trampoline, to a game of the old Jeu Provençal of pétanque on the purpose-made court.
The Villa la Paillote opens up onto a grand entrance with a piano and storage space. The living area is made up of different spaces,firstly, the living room with its large sofa, armchairs, TV, and contemporary decoration; secondly a dining area with tables and armchairs for 8 guests to make mealtimes a convivial affair; and lastly a modern and fully equipped kitchen (coffee machine, kettle, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, etc.) with a large central island with 5 more spaces. The whole is light and airy thanks to the large bay windows which shower light in day-round, and give direct access to the terrace and swimming pool. The ground floor also offers further amenities in its laundry room, including a washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board, etc.
The ground floor is where you will also find the master bedroom with its floor coolong system and en-suite dressing room and bathroom with a shower and bathtub. With its savannah aesthetic and direct access to the garden, this bedroom oozes tranquillity. Upstairs, the secondary living room has large windows giving an unobstructed view of the landscaped gardens, swimming pool, and wooden pergola. It is connected to the 5 other bedrooms on this floor: 4 are doubles, and 1 is a single children’s room. These bedrooms share two shower rooms between them, which are modern and extremely well-lit. Finally, the upper floor contains shelves with dozens of board games for all ages, to keep the whole family occupied for hours on end.
Although it may not be necessary since most shops are a walk away (village market, bakery, grocers, pharmacist etc.), the Villa Paillote has a garage for 1 car. Indeed, the villa is located a stone’s throw away from the medieval centre of the village of Sommières, famous not only as the region’s centre for leather and linen, but also as the home of completely organic vineyards and olive oil producers. Furthermore, its Roman aqueducts, medieval fortress (which you can ascend for views of the whole Vidourle valley) and Saturday Farmers market will fill the planning of those who prefer the outdoors. For active families, the local climate and topography offer an abundance of activities, with local outlets offering accrobranche, outdoor escape rooms, and sculpture parks (showring performances of how work was achieved in the past), as well as a variety of water sports : kayaking, canoeing and paddle boarding, cycling along the “Voie Verte”.
