Wonderfull house in a small willage, two steps away from all amenities you may need during your stay.
Air conditionning is a must, so is the pool which offers a perfect privacy. The summer kitchen is very appreciable. Linda is also available et very gentle. I 100% validate. Thanks for all.

Good morning Martine et Hervé
We very much enjoyed our stay at your beautiful Villa Syrah, thank you.
We had a hire car so were easily able to explore the gorgeous local Languedoc region.
Close by we had a wonderful time at the Seigneurie de Peyrat enjoying the choir of cicadas during our ‘PIQUE-NIQUE CHIC’ experience which was interactive and fun! Seigneurie de Peyrat
We also hired a chef one evening to cook for us at the Villa Syrah which was a great success and truly delicious.
Wishing you a successful Summer 2022 season and hope to see you again soon.

David & Valérie S., 2 adults . (UK– 04/06-18/06/2022)
We had a wonderful time at Villa Syrah. As we mentioned while there, this is about our sixth visit to the area so we were very well acquainted with its beauty.
As you know, the weather was fantastic, even a little too hot in the second week, so shade from the trees and air conditioning were both very welcome.
The welcome email instructions sent by Linda are in need of a little updating but I believe you are aware of this. We mentioned a couple of things to Linda regarding a need for a few more mugs/cups. We found ourselves washing up mugs regularly even though there was only two of us.
The accommodation is excellent and very comfortable and despite the odd noisy dog, it is quiet.
If we visit the area again, we will certainly be considering your property.
Thank you for our stay and we wish you all the very best.

Hi Herve

Thank you for your email, please accept my apologies for not replyin – we have tried to keep the holiday email free to completely relax from work life!
We have really enjoyed our stay in your house, it’s situated in a beautiful area of France, and have enjoyed the pool and appreciated the AC in the house.
Kind regards

Kate D., 2 adults . (USA– 22/06-07/07/2019)
Hi Herve,
We had a wonderful stay, the apartment is beautiful and the local area is lovely. Don’t really have any recommendations – everything was great!


Sue L., 2 adults . (UK– 11/05-17/05/2019)
Bonjour Herve

Thank you very much for the email.
My husband and I had a wonderful week at the Villa Syrah.
What a wonderful home, it was very enjoyable to stay at an unusual
We had everything we needed and the home was very tidy and clean.
We were concerned there wasn’t a curtain to stop the shower water from going all over the tiled floor in the en-suite. But we did manage to keep it to a minimal!
Thank you again for letting us stay at your home.

Eveything was fine for us. Thanks for being available and for this nice house decorated with taste and with all confort. Our daughter particularly appreciated as well as we. We hope to come back next year.
Très cordialement

Sarah & Colin B., 2 adultes. (Australia– 07/07-21/07/2018)
Dear Martine and Herve
We are now home in Australia.
We very much enjoyed staying in your house. The location was perfect for touring the region: we visited villages, vineyards and seaside towns. We loved Mèze in particular and the beach at Sète. It was very relaxing to come back to the house and cool off with a dip in the pool before dinner. We found the location of the house was very peaceful, but ideal for its proximity to Pèzenas. We would have no hesitation recommending your lovely home to our friends.
Thank you again for letting us stay.
Kind regards
Sarah and Colin

Sue, Nec C. & 2 friends (6) & (5) . (UK– 05/05-12/05/2018)
Hi both
We all enjoyed the stay at Villa Syrah. We liked the location – both in Lezignan and the fact that it is close to Pezanas and easy to get to other locations (we went to Carcassonne; Montpellier, Millau etc)
Thanks you for making the bicycle available and the table football!! It was also nice to have a pool – although we only used that once. A lot of useful information was also provided in the villa.
We struggled a little using the cooker and dishwasher on our first night. We also struggled with the TV and I’m still not sure we had access to all the channels that were available!! So, maybe being met by a representative would have been helpful – although Caroline had offered to send her husband, in her absence.
We liked the fact that you contacted us personally – it offered us reassurance prior to our trip – thanks for your help.
All in all we enjoyed our stay and if in the area would visit Villa Syrah again.
Thank you.

Answer Villa Syrah
Hi Sue & Neville
Thanks for nice comments which I intend to copy on the website in full.
For the devices, Olivier, Stephanie’s husband could have help you, you were too kind to decline his visit which is part of the welcoming, visitors are of course always met by one or the other just after arrival after agreing on proper time.
Also note that guets have my direct number which they are very welcome to use.

All the best for next adventures

Daniel, Fiona W. & kids (6) & (5) . (UK– 29/7-12/08/2017)
Many thanks Herve, we had a really lovely time.
I have only a couple of small suggestions which may help future families who are lucky enough to visit. Some plastic glasses would be useful for around the pool and some sort of rubber mat in the garage bathroom would help as it is very slippery in there for little ones.
Thanks again

Answer Villa Syrah
By the way thanks for the recommendations, we will certainly consider the rubber mat, for the plastic glasses it may be more complicate to have and maintain the right formats for everyone, we could certainly have a few of most standart.

Timothy & Karen D. (UK– 01/7-08/07/2017)
Hi Herve,
Thank you for your email, sorry for the delay in replying.
We had a wonderful time at the villa, it was even better than we hoped. If we return to the South of France again we will certainly book it again, if it’s available.
Thanks again,

Jutta & Michael E. (G– 17/6-01/07/2017) second visit (google translation)
Hello Hervé
Thank you for your email.
First of all, we went back home after a very good two weeks.
The weather was nice and warm the first week (wonderful for the pool).
The second week was still good but without this great heat.
We drank very good wine and visited very good restaurants.
(Franck Putelat in Carcassone, Octopus in Beziers, Cot Mas, Lauzun in Gignac, Presbytery in Vailhan etc)
We visited the “marches” and cooked with excellent and fresh products.
We discovered a bakery with wood fire in Canet and visited many beautiful places.
It was like God in France.
With this beautiful house – a perfect vacation.
We met Olivier and Raphael – friendly and funny and we drank a beer together.
We look forward to returning next year.
Jutta & Michael

Dear Martine and Herve

We have settled in very well thank you into your lovely home. Everything has been super and I dint think we could have asked for more. You certainly have made a wonderful place to stay.

We met friends today who are camping nearby near Neffies and walked around Beziers looking at the view from the cathedral, the Roman bridge and the nine locks at the Canal de Midi and our evening meal in Pezenas.
Thank for your recommendations we will certainly try a few. The brochures in the lounge have been very helpful also.
Weather has been great too and we have has a glass of wine or two under the trees!

Best regards
Lynn and Paul

Thanks Martine and Herve,
We had a wonderful stay thank you so much.
Yes not down the road but as we love the region we may be back next year.
Your home is special and we did have some time in the pool .
Michelle wants to stay longer next time so I’m sure we will be in touch.
Kind regards

Vincent M. I.(Scotland-15/10-22/10/2016)
Sorry for not getting back to you sooner, very busy at work after our wonderful week away!
The villa was absolutely outstanding everything we could have wished for.
Lovely little village, fresh bread and croissants from the little baker shop every morning, weather was great, lots of exploring, sampled some wine and discovered the wonderful port of Meze.
Outstanding week will need to look at available dates for next year when I know my time off.

Good evening,
Here we are already in the final straight of our holidays.
We took advantage of the inn of the abbey yesterday noon, of Bouzigues oysters last week.
We find our marks in the villa and spend pleasant moments as the past year there. You made a great place.

Catherine B. (UK – 30/07-13/08/2016)
We have stayed in many different holiday properties in Europe but this one was certainly one of the very best. The house was well equipped and comfortable, the location excellent and the pool area perfect.
We were sorry to leave – there was so much to see and do in the area. We would be very pleased to book the Villa-Syrah again.
Kind regards,

Chris & Michael B (UK – 06/2016)
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Villa Syrah and thought the village and surrounding area was one of the nicest places we have been in France. We have over the years been to almost every department in France but never to Pezenas. In fact we liked it so much we are considering a move from The Limousin to the Pezenas area.
The house was charming and very comfortable indeed, and we would like to thank you for allowing our little dog to stay. If there was one thing that would have made it any better, then we would have perhaps liked a small fridge in the downstairs area so that we could use it for our barbecues and to chill the wine. (We ate all our meals outside).

Réponse Villa Syrah
Thanks for positive feedback and relevant suggestion, we will install a small fridge at the pool level already this year for the rest of the season. Would be please to welcome you again

Jutta & Michael E. (D – 18/06/2016)
Chers Martine et Hervé,
Merci beaucoup pour laisser cette maison merveilleuse.
Nous avons passé une semaine comme un rêve avec temps parfait, avec excursions très intéressantes et on a très bien mangé.
Alors, maintenant en anglais:
Two things we have to ask:
How you can start the hood in the kitchen? – we didn´t know how to do it – technical amateur!!
The lightning in the bigger bathroom could be a little more bright and in addition one of the bulbs was broken.
But really, that was not a problem.
Finally one question:
We would be very glad if it were possible to rent the house for one or two weeks again in June 2017.

Silke W. (D – 06/2016)
Nous avons eu des très bonnes vacances a Villa Syrah et nous sommes surs que nous retournerons pour autres vacances dans l avenir.

Marte S. T. (Norway – 07/05-28/05/2016)
Hi, we arrived last night at 0030 and have managed to get installed into this lovely house! We had high expectations, but the house exceeds them !

Joanne H. (UK – 12/09-19/09/2015)
Hello Mr Foussadier
We enjoyed our stay at Villa Syrah, it was well equipped. The weather was OK and the scenery was lovely in the region, particularly the Cirque de Navacelles, that was truly amazing.
One suggestion – the provision of liquid soap for guests would be good, that is a strange thing to have to buy for one week, that would be helpful.

Armin K. (Ger – 05/09-12/09/2015)
Dear Hervé,
We enjoyed the the stay in Villa Syrah very much and we´d like to thank you for all the information that we got from you.
We´ll probably come back someday.
Best wishes,
Maria and Armin K.

Beautiful villa ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We had a fabulous stay in this gorgeous villa. It’s in a lovely quiet village. The pool is perfect for two and the villa is very comfortable. We will definitely be back soon.

Donna E. (UK – 22/08-29/08/2015)
Dear Hervé,
Apologies for not emailing sooner, with the internet limit at Villa Syrah I needed to reserve use for my work (from which I could escape!). I would like to express our thanks for providing us with a lovely property in a good location for our vacation. After visiting a few local towns Pezenas was our favourite and we were so pleased to be staying so close. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I am sure we will return.
Kind regards Donna

Answer Villa Syrah
Dear Donna
I am glad with your feedback, this kind of positive comments is our best reward we expect. As you may know, we only started mid of last year, we will keep improving the confort and service (automatic gate, better Internet when the fiber projects made possible as promised by the mayor ….).

Ingeborg P. (NL – 27/06-04/07/2015)
Cher Hervé,
As promised … We’re traveling to the south again end of August … and as we’ve enjoyed your home … We would like to know if your home is available as of 22 of August …
Kind regards,

Marise S… (UK – 11/07-18/07/2015)
Good morning Hervé
We had a very happy stay in your villa thank you and are now enjoying a week in ….
We visited le jardin Saint Adrien which was beautiful but did not stay for the horses and the music. The only suggestion I have would be to put in the information the most appropriate setting on the dishwasher as we found the symbols a little confusing. But it is a minor point as the villa really was perfect and thank you for allowing us to use it.
Regards, Marise

Maison de village idéale pour de bonnes vacances
Une très belle maison, conforme aux photos et très agréable. Un design raffiné. Bref, avec la piscine chauffée pas grand-chose à redire. Maison propre et fonctionnelle. Un propriétaire disponible et à l’écoute. Si je reviens dans la région, c’est sûr je reprends la maison si disponible.

Merci Sofiane Rien à ajouter Au plaisir de vous recevoir à nouveau

Très bien et confortable .avec charme et originale style. Pour être positif et ne pas concorder on penser suivent. 1. il n’est pas un lumière de hors pour ouvert le port dans le soir / nuit. 2 .l’idea est bon pour cache le évier dans le placard mais il est un peu difficile pour utilise quand on cuire. 3.les lumières dans le salle de manger sont un peu brille (je suis un photographie est plus sensible) mais peut être un interrupteur variable sera très facile ? Les remarques en haut sont applique pour reste dans le hiver ( les nuits noirs ) et je pense que tout est différent dans l’été. On aime Villa Syrah tout est très accessible a les amicale boulanger, et le petite magasins. On recommandera a les amis et famille. Merci a vous Geoff & Pauline.

Réponse Villa Syrah
Merci Geoff pour ce commentaire positif et constructif. Je l’ai fais suivre à Stéphanie pour les travaux électriques pertinents en particulier pour la porte d’entrée. Dans le salon, il y a plusieurs solutions d’éclairage qui peuvent s’adapter aux besoins.

Jean-François L. (FR – 27/12-03/01/2015)
Très agréable villa
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour villa de fin d’année dans cette villa de caractère très agréable à vivre et décorée avec beaucoup de goût. Le propriétaire est charmant et ça a été un plaisir de traiter avec lui. Globalement la location est très fonctionnelle moyennant quelques petits ajustements, notamment au niveau du chauffage des chambres, un peu difficile à ajuster. L’été, avec la piscine, il doit faire bon y passer quelques jours. Par contre, la villa est prévue pour 4 personnes et n’est pas conçue pour plus. Dernier aspect intéressant, la proximité de Pézenas petite ville où il fait bon se promener. En conclusion, je recommande chaudement cette location.

Réponse Villa Syrah
Merci pour ce commentaire que nous prenons comme très positif, il reflète ce que nous avons voulu faire partager à nos visiteurs. Nous avons effectivement souhaité offrir le confort et l’espace pour quatre personnes plutôt que de multiplier les couchages, cependant un lit bébé est possible sur demande. Quant au chauffage qui est neuf, les ajustements seront évidemment réalisé dans la foulée. Au plaisir de vous recevoir à nouveau

Jean-Michel C. (FR – 16/08-22/08/2014)
+ “La villa est entièrement refaite à neuf, très bien agencée et équipée. La villa est située dans un petit village à quelques km de Pézenas. Pas de nuisance sonore et cadre reposant. En un mot excellent séjour.”
