Perks for the Parents

This modern masterpiece just 10 minutes from magical Nîmes has everything you could wish for including a heated pool, gym, luxury suite with a hot tub and its own wine cellar. It sleeps up to 12. Parents will love relaxing on the wooden terrace next to the 15m (50 ft) sparkling infinity pool. There’s a bioclimatic pergola too with outdoor sofas and coffee table that adapts to any weather condition. The gym has a running machine, power plate, fridge and TV for parents who like to keep fit while away. A concierge service is available to organize anything you’d like including a sommelier, fitness coach, daily breakfasts and meals from an outstanding delicatessen. Taste local wines in your own wine cellar with bottles available to enjoy.

Why Kids Love it

Kids will love the pool set in spacious grounds that is gated with a hydraulic glass fence. There’s also the welcome addition of a ping pong table, billiard table, table football and boules pitch. The studio with its separate bedroom and living space would be an ideal space for a nanny or teenagers – it has an independent entrance opening onto the south-facing garden. The grounds are enclosed with lawns and trees. Older kids will appreciate the iPod docking system. Beaches are about a 40-minute drive away and there’s horse-riding, kayaking and mountain-biking to enjoy locally. Want something different? Parc Panda is a short drive away for paintballing, go-karting and tree top climbing.

About the Location

This villa is just outside the Roman city of Nîmes in the Languedoc-Roussignol region of southern France. Nîmes is home to relics from the Roman Empire including the Roman temple of Maison Carrée and the best preserved Roman amphitheater in France. If you’re here for summer be sure to check out one of France's biggest festivals, Féria de Pentecote, held in Nîmes where you can see bull-fighting, music, concerts and dancing. The region has many vineyards, pretty villages, farmers’ markets, historic sites and rolling countryside to enjoy. We recommend hiring a car to make the most of your location. The nearest international airport is Nîmes Alès Camargue Cévennes Airport.

Style Notes

Sleek French style. This villa, handcrafted by a local carpenter, is both modern and luxurious with clean lines and open spaces. It has been designed with your comfort in mind – there is air conditioning in all the main bedrooms, the studio room and the gym. An underfloor cooling system cools the kitchen, dining room and bedroom off the main suite. A house iPad centrally controls the music system, lights and shutters. We love the large terrace, perfect for family feasts, that overlooks the pool, and the lawn; the wine cellar with a tasting area and a cigar humidor for guests; and the bedroom suite with the hot tub for relaxing in peace and quiet under the stars.
