We liked the house in Montagnac very much
It was spacious, with reasonable beds, the pool and terrace marvellous with a lot of character. Huge "garage". Nice and quiet location. All very authentic. What might need some more attention is the kitchen: cutlery was rare and some pots were broken. It might be a good idea to invest some money into the kitchen, maybe to modernise it in general (incl. furniture and lighting). In the garden, I "freed" saint Marie (the statue in the wall) from the greenery that had covered her. Nice detail that should be looked after. In general, the house was a good choice!

French Family Holiday Experience
This was a first holiday including all our extended family of 13 persons which was a great success, the property and facilities met all of our needs, and the information provided was accurate and useful in our holiday planning. The house is massive and really interesting / rustic, the garage under the house was also massive, at one time it may even have been used for a wine cellar!
The electric garage door is key operated and would benefit from a remote control for ease of entry rather than having to get out of the car each time. It would have been very useful to have more than the two sets of keys provided to allow more independence of movement of the 5 groups of our family.
There were some complementary bottles of wine and a full bag of charcoal provided for us on our arrival and we were met by a nice lady who explained the layout and facilities to us and also met us on our departure. Language was a bit of an issue here on some specific areas but we managed for communicate quite well in "Franglais" with her and the cleaner.
The Pool, veranda, BBQ area and garden were the most popular and used facilities by us, the furnishings and chairs in the house were nice but not particularly comfortable, but his didn`t affect us as we only really slept in the house and Gite.
Everything needed was provided in terms of white goods and appliances, although the quantity was good, the organisation and consistency of pots pans, knives forks and cooking utensils in the kitchen could have been much better.
We only used the main kitchen for preparing cooking mostly doing BBQ was easier as the kitchen was cramped for so many people especially at breakfast with people coming and going in there.
The local shops were 5 minutes` walk away in the main street where there were also nice bars and restaurants in a nice typically French setting, providing basic groceries, bread and meat etc. and we had pizza from the local takeaway which was very nice too.
The village was quite busy with lots of through traffic but this only affected us if we went into the shops and the local area / street was very quiet (apart from the Bin Men early on some mornings.
We mainly shopped in Pezenas at the larger supermarket (10 minutes by car) which was an interesting place with lots to see. We can also recommend a trip to the local Wine cooperative Cave with some very nice Montagnac wine to sample and buy there.
Although we were not on holiday to be on the internet answering e mails all the time, everyone in our family had a mobile phone, tablet or laptop and the Wi Fi was not able to cope at all, even restricting it to a few people it was un reliable and I used my phone 3G connection which was much better.
Overall it was a great holiday which we would consider repeating at this Villa.
