The best villas in France offer more than enough ways to keep you entertained on-site, with a host of easily accessible activities nearby (in case you can peel yourself away from your lounger!). This was part of the reason we chose La Contadine in Ornaisons as our new Cottage of the Week. The other was…well, just take a look at the pics!
If you can bring yourself to wander away from your poolside location (and there’s a large pool and Jacuzzi sized reason you may not!) you’ll also find a few welcome indoor options, such as an immense living room with a pool table and home cinema set-up, super king-size bedroom and several other mod cons to ensure unrivalled leisure and comfort. If somehow you do manage to divert your attentions from the serious business of relaxation you’ll find plenty of fantastic ways to spend your time in the surrounding area.
Located in Languedoc-Roussillon, La Contadine is perfectly situated for exploring one of France’s most enjoyable regions. Miles of golden sandy beaches are just over 10 miles away; wine and history lovers will be delighted by Béziers, the Catalan city of Perpignan or Carcassonne, whose world famous medieval fortified city can be visited on foot. If you fancy something on a smaller scale then the commune of Lagrasse is officially recognised as one of France’s most beautiful villages, and well worth a visit.
La Contadine itself is located on the outskirts of the village of Ornaisons, where you can stock up on provisions or dine out. The property itself offers an oven, microwave and barbecue, so you won’t be short of dining options. The TV also offers satellite and a DVD player – there’s also Wi-Fi if you fancy sharing your holiday experiences with your friends, or checking the latest news from home.
