Villa Françine, Sète

Sleeps 10

€7,635 - €12,800 per week

The fishing town of Sète with its numerous fish restaurants and canals, has natural sandy beaches and over 20km of newly built beach promenade.   The villa has a wonderful beachfront position with only the promenade and keep-fit track between it and the sandy beach. Villa Fredericka is right next door for larger groups of up to twenty.

The combination of traditional local stone and wood and glass provide for a spectacular entrance and the light and airy open plan living area offers stunning sea views. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is a sound system, plasma television and DVD library in the living room. Overall there is 400sq.m. of air conditioned accommodation spread over three levels

All bedrooms are suitable for double or twin occupancy and all have plasma televisions, DVD players and iPod docking stations. The luxurious en-suite bathrooms are brimming with L’Occitane products and fluffy bathrobes and towels for your comfort.

Children and big kids can enjoy table tennis, table football and other activities in the basement gymnasium. Relax in the sauna or watch your favourite movie in the cinema room, both situated in the basement. There is a nanny ensuite double bedroom here which many guests use as the perfect fifth bedroom for the teenagers!

Outside are manicured gardens, terraces and an infinity pool surrounded by comfortable sun loungers for when you can tear yourself away from the glorious beach with its restaurants and water sports.   Use of the villa’s speedboat, kayaks, stand up paddles and mountain bikes for all ages ensure there’s plenty to do for those looking for a more “active” break. If keeping in touch is important while you are away, the villa has WiFi access throughout. Something for everyone here – the perfect family villa for all ages.

What Sarah thinks:

“An area less well known outside France, but extremely popular with the French, as the beaches are beautiful with that white sand that squeaks when you walk on it! A busy and bustling place with the traditional fishing village of Sète a cycle ride away along the promenade. The main difference between the two villas is that Villa Francine’s pool is set into the lawn whereas Villa Fredericka’s is built into the terrace with an infinity edge.”

Client Reviews:
