The villas offer independent accommodation to each couple allowing privacy and intimacy in equal measures. Montpellier 30 mins. Sea 30 mins.

This is a great place to totally unwind with only the noise of cicadas to disturb your relaxation. The pool, particularly welcome in the recent heat wave, was clean and refreshing. The villa was beautifully decorated and contained everything we might possibly need - even a picnic basket with cold blocks, plastic plates and cutlery. This would be a wonderful...

We had an amazing, relaxing holiday at Le Grand Hermitage. The hosts Barbara and Richard were excellent. The personalised pillow cases and delicious home made hamper were such a lovely touch. The meal we had that was prepared by Barbara was excellent in a beautiful al fresco setting with great company. We could not recommend this holiday enough and would...

We particularly loved the extra little touches - personalised pillow cases, roses, hamper on arrival, breakfast hamper... We also sampled their wonderful bistro menu which was divine! It was just the most perfect way to start our married life together. A...

Additional amenities & feature info
Papillon like its sister Cigale is beautifully furnished with an ecclectic mix of English antiques and French charm. The villa is large, and romantic with all the modern facilities you may require for your precious holiday in the sun. Sun loungers and comfortable chairs are scattered about the property with hammocks gently swinging from the conker tree.<BR>The large sumptous beds are dressed in 400 count Egyptian cotton sheets, a picnic awaits or a casserole in the winter complete with a bottle of wine to drink whilst soaking in double ended bath gazing at the vines and surrounding hills. Peace and quiet envelope you lulling you to sleep to the sound of nightingales.
