Indoors & Outdoors

Indoors

With floor to ceiling windows, this ground floor holiday home is cool and bright and fabulous for families making the most of the indoor/outdoor life that epitomise family holidays in France.

Inside, the beams, stone arches and stone floors give the property plenty of character whilst still having all the mod-cons associated with modern life.  The kitchen  is fully equipped with a microwave, dishwasher, fridge, coffee machine, oven and hob and is open onto the dining area which has a large dining table easily seating eight.

Stone arches separate the living room from the kitchen area. The living room has a double sofa-bed, TV and DVD player and with views of the private enclosed terrace and the countryside beyond. 

There are two double bedrooms (one with a cot, the other has space for a cot) and one child's room with a set of bunk beds (ladders can be removed to prevent small children climbing up if not being used) and a small toddler bed. There is also space for a travel cot if needed. This child's room does not have external windows but high internal ones fitted with blinds, that look into the living room and one of the double bedrooms. This holiday home boasts a stunning, large bathroom with an old roll-top bath, stone sink and open roman shower.

A property floorplan is available to view in the main image gallery.

Outdoors

Aubriete has its own enclosed private terrace with views over towards the garden and the river beyond.  Here there is a barbecue and garden furniture for lazy days outside.

The heated, saltwater infinity pool is shared with the other the two holiday homes and overlooks the river and the views beyond.   Here there is an array of blow up pool toys for endless hours of water play.

And there's plenty to do outside the water too.  The communal play room provides a shady play option whilst the fenced playground has swings, slides and a play castle for burning off energy.

For exploring the local area there is an array of bikes to borrow, for both adults and kids, as well as a choice of safe places to go.  
 
The Water Mill has two hectares of land along the Vidourle River.  This is a perfect stretch of river for some gentle paddling or for playing with fishing nets.  Two kayaks are also available for great adventures with a picnic or for a quick paddle around.

Parent Point:

  • The swimming pool has an infinity edge
  • This property is situated next to a river - However, unless you leave the mill land and venture out to the road or go through the locked gate you can not access the river, but parents should be aware.

What's Around?

Family holidays in France would not be complete without some outings to explore the local area. ...And there are no shortage of things to do in this part of France.

Just five minutes away is the pretty town of Sommiers with its cobbled streets and olde-worlde feel. Here there are lots of boutiques, bars and restaurants as well as a fantastic weekly market.

Special events include a night market throughout July and August as well a medieval fete in April. In addition Laurence Durrell once lived here and there is a museum to celebrate his life and achievements.

For keen riders are several riding stables within 15 minutes' drive and the team at the Watermill are happy to book lessons on your behalf. Down on the coast, at Stes Maries de la Mer it is possible to book a sunset ride on the beach, just let the team know if that is something that you would like to do.

The Romans had a big influence in this part of France which is clearly evident in the beautiful cities of Montpellier and Nimes (just 30 mins away). The Roman arena at Nimes hosts bull fights and concerts and the likes of Elton John, David Bowie, Dido & Pavarotti have played here.

Nimes is famous for the ‘Feria' or festivals that are held on bank holidays throughout the year. The town comes alive with colour and life and the bulls are run through the street.

Montpellier meanwhile is a hugely vibrant centre with plenty to ‘ooh' and ‘ahh' at! The city itself however is an utter gem, best explored by foot.

The large ‘egg shaped' Place De La Comedie with its beautiful Opera House, bars and cafes forms the heart of the city but it's definitely worth nipping down the back streets to find the hidden squares with their lively cafes, bars and restaurants, galleries, boutiques and churches.

The real delights are off the main trail and remain out of view to the majority of tourists!

If you're in search of indoor activities, this is the place to come. The list includes an Aquarium, a planetarium, indoor climbing courses, ice skating, and cinemas with English movies.

For memorable family holidays in France, do have a trip down to the beach. There is a wide choice of gentle, sandy beaches with the Mediterranean lapping benignly at the shore. These are just 30 minutes from the Watermill and we suggest that you get advice about which ones to choose.

Other ‘must-see' in the area include the Pont Du Gard aqueduct, the Haribo Sweet Museum or the beautiful town of Avignon.

And a holiday in France would not be complete with a taster of this region's greatest export, the wine! If you'd like to take your ‘taster' to a deeper level then private wine tasting tours can be arranged complete with a chauffeur!
