About this listing
Our family house « Villa Sita" is not only a beach house, is a house of plenty of memories that has been in our family for nearly a century. Located in the Languedoc-Roussillon region in southern France.
We offer a fully furnished apartment in the ground floor of a house with terrace and a garden for your holidays by the Mediterranean sea in Valras Plage. The apartment is located 2 minutes walking from the beach; you can literally go there barefoot and in swimming suit!
Located in the Languedoc-Roussillon region in southern France, Valras Plage is a city that was built at the end of the 19th century. Our house is located in the historic part of the village. The cute town center is really close, you can go groceries shopping by foot.
It's a house with two separate apartments. Each apartment was just renovated this summer, and by renovated, we mean entirely. Everything was changed from the pipes to the roof and the floors.

Interaction with Guests
We are always available by email or phone for our guest. We always try to answer the question and solve the problem in the moment.
Remind to read the house rules. We integrate all the details, phones numbers... etc. We have (email hidden) filled with info on the page of the house.
Do not hesitate to contact us by email if you have any question.
We highly recommend Valras for the Wine and the cultural tourism. There is plenty of vineyard in the region and also typical village of the history of France around like Cathar castles, painting tradition…etc. What I most like is enjoy the little market and taste the product of the region.
The train station, Beziers, is at 15 km from the house.
There is a bus (line 16) from Beziers and Valras Plage who cost only 50 cents and stop in front of the house. (time travel 30min)
Airport: Vias/Beziers at 15 km from the house
Other Things to Note
PLEASE READ THE HOUSE RULES BEFORE BOOKING.
PHOTO AND BIO: For security reasons, we don't pre-approve enquiries without a face photo (so we know the person who shows up is the person who booked). No exceptions, it's nothing personal. Please also make sure either your enquiry or profile says a bit about you - your interests, job, reason for travelling to France etc. "Hi Mathias and Tiphanie my name is X from Y your home looks great is it available these dates" will not suffice :-)
PRE-APPROVAL: Reservation is made at time of payment. A "preapproval" just gives you permission to book the room. It does NOT reserve the room for you. I may pre-approve several enquiries for the same
We ask you to understand and respect the sentimental value that it is for us. We hope that our future generation will be able to enjoy the « Villa Sita", so it is very important to us that you take care of the house and also of the furnitures and the objets. We’ll share with you the old desk of our great-grandfather, the objects that our father brought to each of his trips and the furnitures of our grandmother and father… etc. Please if you are not able to understand and respect it, abstain of making any reservation.
We had a very nice stay in the Minquet house in Valras-Plage. The backyard with patio & plancha bbq was great & in use by us each day. The beach was just a few minutes by foot. The communication with the Minquets was very frequent & friendly.
The house is really very nice! It is decorated with much taste, so we felt like we’ve been invited to our friends’ house. There is a huge glass door between the house and the terrace, so lots of light and fresh air comes into the room. We left it open during nights (only shutters were closed) and had cool air instead of using a conditioner (which is also available).
On the terrace there is a big table and it is located in the corner which is most of the time is in the shadow, so it was comfortable to have meals outdoors.
The house is located in a very calm and quite place and no noise disturbed us. The sand beach is 5 minutes walking and very big.
Unfortunately, we haven’t seen our hosts, but they helped us with all our requests very quickly.
Also I would like to mention that the internet connection was perfect! It was very important for us as we were travelling a lot and were planning our trips the day before. Also the speed was so high that we could watch films online on two different computers at the same time.
I’d like to thank our hosts for the nice holidays we had spent in their lovely house.
