The property is located in a residential area on the edge of the medieval hilltop village of Magalas which is set in beautiful countryside with vineyards stretching for miles and lies 10 minutes North of Beziers between Montpellier and Narbonne and just 30 minutes from the Mediterranean coast.
Just a 5 minute walk takes you into the centre of this historic village with its 11th century church and interesting tourist trail. There you will find a bakery, post office, pharmacy, newsagent, bank with cash dispenser as well as a grocery store, restaurant, café/bar and takeaway pizzeria.
A 5 minute drive to the outskirts of the village brings you to a large supermarket, local wine outlet, petrol station, artisan bakery and butcher as well as the main tourist office for the area.
A 5 minute drive in the other direction brings you to the beautiful, newly renovated, Château de Serjac which offers spa days and a lovely restaurant in relaxing surroundings with opportunities for tasting the many local wines.
There are so many options to enjoy while on holiday in this area. To the South the Mediterranean offering a wide choice of long sandy beaches and water sports, boat trips, beachfront restaurants and cafes. Valras Plage has some lovely fresh fish restaurants and a lively market on Friday mornings or visit the Aqualand water park (for children and adults) and, of course, the beautiful Canal du Midi.
To the North, only 25 minutes away, there is the beautiful Languedoc National Park with wonderful scenery including the spectacular Gorges d’Heric and the choice of walking, trekking and mountain biking; lake swimming and water sports at Lake de Salagou, or river swimming, kayaking and canoeing.
All around Magalas the vineyards and wine tasting with different domaines and caveaus are there for you to visit and enjoy as well as lots of interesting villages offering a variety of restaurants for you to try. Make sure you pay a visit to the lively town of Pezenas with a wonderful Saturday market and only 20 minutes away.
Further afield lie Narbonne and Carcassonne or follow the Cathar trail with a range of historic sites. And if you want a complete change you could drive to Barcelona in 2½ to enjoy a long weekend.
You may of course prefer to relax on the terrace with a glass of wine and take lazy swims in the pool – the choice is yours.
Fly into any one of the following airports, all within 90 minutes of the house: Béziers, Montpellier, Carcassonne, Perpignan and Nîmes.
« A fabulous fortnight at a brilliant villa - so well equipped and everything just flows so nicely. Highly recommended. » The Smyths (Kent, UK)
« Back for the 3rd year running! And it gets better and better. Wonderful villa and a fabulous holiday. » The Foster clan (Herts, UK)
« This has been a wonderful holiday and the house has been a major part of that. The pool was lovely on the super hot days and having Sky TV was great for the late evenings. Everything is catered for and more. This is our second visit to the region and it didn't disappoint. » Sarah and David - Milton Keynes
« We've had such a lovely stay - what a relaxing place! We found that there was plenty of space for the whole family. Also we really appreciated the mod-cons such as air-conditioning, wi-fi and sky-tv. We'd recommend a restaurant called O Bontemps to other guests - it's Michelin star quality food. Also worth a visit is the Polygone shopping centre in Béziers which has some lovely cafés for an outdoor lunch. We'll recommend your villa to our friends. » Helen and Steve - Herts, UK
« Our holiday was thoroughly enjoyable and we all loved 'La Maison Pradinels'. Equipment both in the house and garden was excellent. Magalas was a great base for exploring the vicinity, the beach, Carcassonne, Nimes, Aqualand, Roquebrun, the go karts and of course SKY TV. » Marshall Family - Edinburgh
« We had a fabulous time in the South of France and La Maison Pradinels was ideal for our party of 8 which included 3 generations of our family. We were all able to be together but there was plenty of space for us not to be on top of each other which was brilliant. Our teenagers were extremely appreciative of the Wi-Fi and the SKY television was also very much appreciated. We all thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful pool every day and the air conditioning was an absolute godsend particularly at night! We all found La Maison Pradinels extremely comfortable and well equipped and the additional information about local amenities and attractions was very useful and well used. » Nikki - Somerset, UK
« We enjoyed a very pleasant week in your house. We really liked the layout of your house and it was great having SKY TV and other facilities that your house offers. Your house in nicely furnished and has excellent access and security. The bathroom is great, the storage in the bedrooms was very good and it was wonderful to have air conditioning in all the bedrooms. The pool is a good size and shape and was enjoyed by us all and the outside furniture is very good. The house and garden were generally clean, smart and tidy. » S Dharwar - Surrey
