Why the owner chose a home in this location
We chose this villa in the village of Nissan because the village is authentically French and has all the amenities you could want. It's also easy and cheap to get to from the UK thanks to Ryanair. And this part of France is amazing. It has the full Mediterranean climate and beaches but without the costs and crowds associated with the Cote d'Azur. It's also in the middle of one of the best wine regions in France!

Unique benefits of the property:
The villa is very private, so just spending time at the villa enjoying the sunshine and the pool is simply perfect. But then, when you want to head out, there are so many nice things to do. We love making a day of travelling to places like Beziers, Sete or Cap d'Agde - great visits and all with amazing restaurants. But nearby, we have fantastic restaurants as well. The Hotel Residence, a two minute walk from the villa, is one of our favourites. And most of the neighbouring villages also have great places to eat.
The secluded garden is 1200m² and surrounded by an 8ft wall with lockable gates. Within is a private 8m x 4m swimming pool with a retractable cover. The pool utilises an automated salt chlorination system which is better for your skin and hair and prevents red eyes.
Part of the garden is decked with an outdoor dining table suitable for al fresco dining for 10.
There is an outdoor chimney style barbecue.
Table tennis table outside.
Private off-road parking and a garage.
Sorry no pets.
A few little steps so could be suitable for a wheelchair or the elderly.
Easy walking distance to village centre.
" NISS105 - Nick and Kate - "The villa more than met my expectations for a family holiday with young children. I wanted local amenities, comfortable surroundings, a decent pool and easy access to local beaches, Villa Raquel ticked everything on my list. I would highly recommend the location close to Beziers and Pezanas for markets and surrounding countryside. Full marks..." Richie - "After a long day travelling with 3 small children, it was great to find the directions to the villa were very easy to follow - a quick visit to the supermarket saw us provisioned for the next couple of days. The villa is exactly as the owner describes it. It is large, clean, spacious, well furnished and maintained and very easy to settle into. The Owners are easily contactable and the local maintenance agent does them a great service. They both helped make our holiday a fabulous one! I would have absolutely no problem in recommending this villa to pretty much anyone!" "
" “Wonderful facilities in a quiet French village” Reviewed September 21, 2013 NEW We have just returned from a 10 day break at this property. We had a fantastic time. The property is lovely. A well equipped kitchen allows for excellent self catering with the casino supermarket providing all that is needed within 10mins by car.. If you want to shop locally the village, which is a few minutes walk has 3 boulangeries, a fruit and veg shop and a butchers. The private swimming pool and terraces also mean that the property, which is in a residential area is ideal for relaxing whilst away from the main tourist areas. However the main beach resorts are within a 30 min drive. The only negative comment I have is that there is only 1 toilet and shower room, which for us was not a problem as there were only 4 us on the trip, however if 6 were visiting it could get quiet congested. This is a fab property which I would definitely stay in again. "
