There is secure private parking for several vehicles.
The property is ideal for families. We provide highchairs and cots and there is a safety gate at the top of the stairs. Our youngest was only 18 months old when we bought the house so we made it child-friendly for ourselves.
Most of our guests are either multi-generation family groups or 2 families holidaying together. We have had a lot of repeat guests so must be doing something right!!
We do allow well-behaved adult dogs but charge an extra security deposit and ask that they do not go upstairs.
The house is not suitable for stag or hen parties or for large adult-only groups looking for lots of entertainment.
Own transport is necessary as there is a very poor bus service from the town centre.
The full air-conditioning, large private pool and well equipped games area set this house apart from many others.
The location is also fantastic being walking distance to the village, a short drive to beaches but very quiet.
We are a British family with 3 children. We live just north of London in a small town. Tessa is an accountant and Chris a software developer.<br/>Prior to starting a family we travelled a lot and wanted our children to inherit our love of this. We wanted a villa in the south of France that was family friendly but didn't compromise on luxury - our standards didn't change because we had children!!
|Year property purchased||2007|
|Why this location?||We were looking for a home in the south of France and came across this villa whilst holidaying in the area in 2007. The quiet location on the edge of a typical French village was ideal. We were looking for a light and airy, spacious property with a pool and garden within walking distance of shops but in a quiet location and Le Palmier ticks all these boxes! When we purchased the villa it was in desperate need of tlc and we had the property completed renovated to a high standard so that we were happy to use it as our second home. Updating has continued each year and, most recently, we have had all the shutters replaced.|
|Unique benefits of property||We have plenty of private parking and there is no road noise but it's a very easy walk to the centre of the village for your morning baguettes! There is a private pool, air-conditioning and wi-fi and plenty of space. There is also a separate pool house with a large gamesroom. The property is genuinely family-friendly whether you have babies, toddlers, teenagers or somewhere in between!|
