Villa Emma Ref: F34156

This truly outstanding modern holiday villa has been furnished and equipped to a good standard. Peacefully located in spacious private lawned grounds it enjoys a large private swimming pool secured with a glass barrier. Its immense, light and airy living area has a fully retracting façade which opens the living area to the garden. Its state of the art underfloor heating system also cools the villa during the long summer months as efficiently as air conditioning. Grabels is a chic village only 10km from the centre of Montpellier, possibly the nicest town in the south of France and certainly the fastest growing. Bathed in uniquely Mediterranean light, Montpellier, the capital of Languedoc-Roussillon, owes much of its charm to its beautiful historical district and superb gardens juxtaposed with modern buildings. The historical centre has been pedestrianised and is a very pleasant place to linger. Place-de-la-Comedie, a beautiful open square with typical French bistros, is a place impossible to miss.

Ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen with French doors to garden. Tiled floors throughout. Two kingsize bedrooms. Wet room with double basin. First floor: Two bedrooms: One queensize, one twin. Shower room/WC with double basin
