Perks for the Parents

This super-styled Riviera villa with a pool is equipped with a basement playroom/gym, terrace, luxurious bedrooms and sauna. Well set-up for a family stay, it has a full kitchen and family-sized dining area with direct access to the terrace and the pool area, which includes a hot tub. All bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms.The basement playroom has gym equipment (exercise bike, a rowing machine, a treadmill, a sauna and a football table) so you can stay trim on vacation.

Why Kids Love it

Bright, sun-filled and with a pool, this largely open-plan modern villa has plenty to recommend for children. There is a large living room and the basement is set up with a football table ideal for teenagers. There are also toys in the basement play room - small children will need to be supervised around the gym equipment. A crib, high chair, baby toys and a baby bath can be provided on request.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 days during high season and 3 days during the off season. Stays run Saturday-Saturday from 1 July - 25 August. The swimming pool does not have a gate but does has a cover for safety; with direct access from the main living space, non-swimmers will need extra supervision. Stairs are not gated. Small children may also need extra supervision around gym equipment, hot tub and sauna. Note there is no bathtub.

About the Location

The villa is located in Sète, an authentic fisherman town on the French Riviera, 30-40 minutes west of Montpellier. It is set between the city center (2km away) and the ‘Etang de Thau’ (500m away) where shellfish are farmed. The main beach is 2.5km away. A bakery, grocery store, shellfish store and restaurants are within walking distance. The covered market is a great place to find oysters. The nearest airport is Montpellier-Méditerranée Airport, around 35 minutes’ drive away.

Style Notes

Bright, light, modern and sophisticated. This stylish and modern residence is brand new and beautifully designed with curvaceous chrome lighting over the dining table, a sleek and modern pool surround with butterfly chairs and bedrooms with chic wallpaper and graphic paint treatments. We love the playful color accents in the kids room and the modern kitchen with black walls and wooden cabinets.

My name is Michael. I have two beautiful kids with my wife. I am from Sete which is an authentic fisherman town. We had the chance to travel around Asia Pacific and America and we look forward to going abroad again.

We had a lovely week staying at the Rue Des Capucines this summer. The property far surpassed our expectations and offered the whole family a stylish retreat to escape to while not being isolated if we wanted to venture and take advantage of what Sete has to offer. The children loved the pool (why wouldn't they?) and having the hot tub and the games/gym room in the basement also meant that everyone had somewhere to explore and play while we all just relaxed back at the house. It made for a very relaxing holiday. And if you wanted to go out? Well, there was the beautiful beach - miles and miles of it - that was uncrowded and just a short drive down the road and in the other direction was Sete, a charming fishing town, which offered boat trips, markets and plenty of narrow streets to wander down and while away an afternoon. The owners of the house were also incredibly helpful and were available with suggestions for things to do nearby. We combined our stay with a few days in Barcelona, which is only a few hours away and together they provided the perfect holiday!

Sete, French Riviera

Fresh oysters and golden sand beaches

An authentic fishing town on the Riviera, just west of Montpellier, Sete is unpretentious, unspoilt and a wonderful place for a family vacation. Sip oysters in the covered market, play on over 12km of sandy beaches, watch fishing boats in the busy port and stroll up Mont St-Clair for views of vineyards in one direction and the twinkling Mediterranean in the other. Montpellier, the Camargue, Perpignan and Carcassonne are all close enough for an easy day trip.
