Languedoc and Roussillon for super-sized villas 2020

Super sized houses sleeping from 14 to 22 are the secret jewels of the Languedoc & Roussillon area of southern France.  With rich scenery, from the western Mediterranean coastline to its sun-soaked valleys, vineyards and medieval villages still largely untouched by tourism – French country life is alive and well.

Easy access with lots of flights to regional airports, long hot summers and excellent value for money – these fabulous properties are top of Sarah’s list for large family or friends’ gatherings.

We are always looking for new properties in France. Big or small as long as they are gorgeous! Please contact Sarah if you have one.
