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 second floor of a house with 2 terrace 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 walking.
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.
- two terraces, one of them is private for a room.
- A fully equipped kitchen, microwave, oven, refrigerator / freezer
- three bedrooms
- a living room.

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 also a complete guide 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.
A lovely apartment, with plenty of room for all of us. Very comfortable accommodation, situated close to the beach and easy walking distance from the town of Valras plage. We had a lovely time, good quick communication with the hosts Mathius and Tiphanie. Good wifi signal, essential for older children!
The house and area was exactly as described and the apartment was just like the photos illustrate.
Beautifully furnished and well looked after.
Neighbourhood very safe and host was very accommodating.
Would definitely stay again and would recommend. Great for families.
Joli et confortable logement pour un long séjour en famille à Valras-plage. La plage n'est pas très loin et il est possible de laver son linge à 5 minutes à pied dans une laverie. Les 2 hôtes sont très professionnels.
Me and my big family spent in this house a great vacation!!!! The house has a lot of cute things, there are everything you need for a comfortable stay in the house. I want to thank Minquet family for the opportunity to be in such a cozy home. The sea is very close, the city is quiet and cute. So I'm sure everybody will enjoy to be in Villa Sita.
We had a great time during our summer holidays. From the very tastefully furbished house it is just a few minutes walk to the beach, the restaurants and the shops.
Within an hour by car we went to many famous places like Carcassonne, the canyons in the Cevennes, Pezenas, ...
It was always a pleasure to come back to the house every evening, as the house offers plenty of space and is cool even during the high summer season.
Our hosts and their friends where very helpful to us. Whenever we had a question they were very responsive. For example when our daughter needed some medical help it took them just a few minutes to arrange an immediate appointement with a doctor.
I spent a week this summer at Mathias' and Tiphanies' place with my family with two small children. We really enjoyed. The apartment is very nicely renovated with lots of character in a very cute - probably the cutest - neighborhood in Valras Plages. The two balconies were perfect for warm nights and late dinners. It was a true luxury to be in walking distance from the beach; which is nice and refreshing.
Aux voyageurs et voyageuses du monde entier,
Nous avons passé un séjour agréable dans la maison et ce malgré le mauvais temps. Elle est confortable, chaleureuse, propre et très fonctionnelle. La mer est en effet à quelques pas et il y a des choses à faire dans la région.
