" NIZ106 - GUEST BOOK: "We very much enjoyed our stay in the villa. The house was very well equipped and spacious. The village was charming and the location great. Although the house is in the centre of the village, it was private and the three separate terraces are fantastic. Jill and Juliana went out of their way to find us a suitable house at short notice I’d happily recommend the house and the service provided by South France Holiday Villas. (Please feel free to publish our recommendation on the website)." Crawford family, July 2012 'Nizas was wonderful and the house is really comfortable. We spent most of our time out in the courtyard and it is truly peaceful. Many thanks and I hope we can do this again some time soon.' Marvellous stay at Maison Nizas. "We were a party of about ten people and had an excellent stay here. The village, set in picturesque vineyards, is quiet as there is no through-traffic. It is close to Pezenas (5km.), not far from Beziers (20km.) and the sea, and is well located for traveling into the mountains, lake Salagou, Clermont Herault and many other towns and villages. The house is ideal for a family holiday in this beautiful part of southern France. It's spacious, has lots of toilets and showers and the kitchen is very well-equipped. The smaller inner courtyard is great for meals, while the larger courtyard (with pool) is a good area to relax and play in. For sheer comfort, access to walks, swimming in the sea, lakes and in rivers, sight-seeing or just relaxing I highly recommend it. It's a wonderful place and I feel fortunate to have had use of it." We did indeed have a fabulous holiday in Nizas. The house exceeded all our expectations, as did the village and the surrounding area. The weather was wonderful and all in all we had a great time and hope to go back to the house in the future. August 2012 The equipment was not only of a high standard but care had been taken to provide everything that we could possibly need to make our stay enjoyable. The property was very clean and was obviously well looked after and regularly maintained. The booking service was efficiently handled and all emails responded to very promptly. The whole family felt privileged to have been able to share what was obviously a loved family home. We hope to be able to make a retunr visit in the future. 'We had an excellent time and loved the house. Nizas has always been a favourite of ours and your house made it even better. Your garden and pool are lovely and obviously well cared for, a real pleasure to sit out in and enjoy the great weather.' The Cornford Family, September 2012 "
" Debbie - Aug 2013 " It was exactly as we expected, although I thought the village of Nizas would be a little more busy. It said it had a bar and shop which it did, but it was more quiet than I expected, but still lovely. It The property was fabulous, we loved its quirky character and the fact that it had lots of different spaces which meant you could be with everyone or alone if you preferred. We had a brilliant holiday and it made a good base to explore the area. The property was very good value. All of your properties are cheaper than many other companies we looked at. The cleanliness on arrival was great. No problems inside or in the patio areas. The bathrooms were lovely and clean. Stephanie was lovely, very helpful and friendly, very efficient and helped us sort out the tennis too. The booking procedure was great, no problems and very efficient. The office staff were really helpful when we phoned up with a major problem and very reassuring as were the owners. " "
