Villa Xavier at Occitanie
Villa Xavier is not a villa that came to life by chance. It is the labour of love of a skilled, local carpenter who put all his passion and savoir-faire into the creation of his home. The result is a unique, modern home made from quality materials and craftsmanship throughout…and just 10 minutes from magical Nîmes.
This is a newly built home, spacious and comfortable offering several relaxation areas both indoors and outdoors and a stunning private, heated swimming pool. Every detail seems to have been meticulously and lovingly considered, in order to create a modern masterpiece.
The large heated swimming pool on the wooden terrace is a highlight as it blends in beautifully with the modern lines of the garden with bright lawn, white pebble paths and olive trees all dotted about with meticulous care. A bioclimatic pergola with outdoor sofas, a large dining terrace and barbecue plus a heated jacuzzi on the...

In the Languedoc-Roussignol region, yet with the Camargue and the Provence-Alps on its doorstep, Villa Xavier is located just 10 minutes from the old Roman city of Nîmes. Often referred to as the 'French Rome', it is a must see for those with an interest in history. Countless incredibly well preserved relics remain from the Roman Empire, including the ancient aqueduct bridge at Pont de Gard, the Roman temple of Maison Carrée, and, of course, the best preserved Roman amphitheatre in France. One of France's biggest festivals, Féria de Pentecote, takes place in Nîmes from the 6th to 9th June in 2019 and again from 13th to 15th of September. Enjoy bull fights, watching bull runs along the streets, brass bands, folk music, evening markets and dancing in the bodegas until late, eating paella with friends, free concerts, horse parades, watching water jousting and more. We highly recommended a trip to the ancient town of Avignon (50mins), full of history, art, culture and life. Registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Popes’ Palace, the Bridge of Avignon and the Palace Square are just a few of the marvellous attractions on offer. It is said that once you arrive in Avignon, you will never want to leave… In the Summer, there is a famous Arts Festival, a great chance to enjoy films, theatre and street performers. Around 30 minutes away by car, at the source of the Eure, lies the medieval commune of Uzès. The 11th century Tour Fenestrelle is a 42 metre high Romanesque tower that is the definitive landmark, and a must see on a trip to Uzès. The Saturday night market is also famous across the region, selling locally produced food, clothing and plenty of touristy delights. The medieval riverside town of Orange (50mins) is a further day-trip option with plenty of Roman monuments, museums and a lively market every Thursday. The sea is only 40km away and the Camargue is also easily accessible, not to mention all the exciting things to do and experience in the area: golf, horse-riding, kayaking, mountain-biking, markets, wine-tasting and more. Staying at Villa Xavier means having it all: beautiful towns, vineyards and stunning Mediterranean coastline.
