About the property

Overlooks vineyards, large garden with private pool, perfect for families.

Spacious 5-bedroom house on the edge of the charming village of Caux. Furnished with traditional french antique furniture combined with modern amenities. Half-acre garden with private swimming pool and an abundance of trees to provide shady spots on hot summer days. A large terrace flanks two sides of the house, perfect for alfresco dining with BBQ and seating for 10 around a large hardwood table.Relax in dappled afternoon & evening sunlight provided by partial shade from the row of Lombardy poplars alongside. Beautiful views across rolling hills of vineyards towards the south and the medieval town of Pezenas which is just 7 kilometres away. There are 2 large bathrooms, each with bath, one with shower cubicle, a separate WC and an additional shower room and WC off the laundry room. In the traditional style of the region, the main accommodation is on the first floor (to keep the marauders at bay) whilst the master bedroom commands the best views from the second floor. Plentiful parking

Great house for family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Two families stayed for two weeks in August. Plenty of room for all of us. Meals on the terrace were a highlight. House is in great location. Quiet but only a short walk to the village centre (for fresh croissant and bread in the morning - yummy). The village centre will be lovely when the renovation is complete. It's only a short drive to the lovely town of Pezenas with supermarkets and shops.

The house has everything you could want (though the one shower could use a little TLC). Owner and local manager both very friendly and helpful. Pool was very clean. We had a fabulous time.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your kind words and frank review. Pleased to say that the village centre renovations were finally finished in autumn 2013 (6 months overdue) and now looking fabulous. The shower too has had the attention it needed as well as a few other fixtures around the house. The outside of the house has had a complete repaint this winter and looks fantastic. New photos to be posted on the website shortly. We're very pleased you enjoyed your stay. Michelle & Mike

Great House in a Beautiful Area

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property for a month with family aged from 9 to 85 years! and it was suitable for all. Had everything we needed, and the owner was extremely welcoming and helpful. Loved the area and the village although there were a lot of pedestrian improvement works going on in the village during our stay. Would recommend this property to families of all ages.

Fantastic villa in Caux

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant time at this villa in Caux. The house was perfect for us, with plenty of space both inside and outside and a lovely pool for cooling at the end of the day.

The village of Caux has everything you would need - butcher's, baker's, general store and a weekly market - all within a few minutes of the house. The locals were friendly too and always responded to our attempts to speak French.

We found plenty to do in the area - a highlight was the excellent cycling on quiet and very smooth roads. You could choose between flat routes or hill climbs (including a Tour de France climb) - all within easy distance of the house.

We also visited Marseillan, Sete, and the Med beaches, plus Pezenas, Collioure and Peyrepertuse. All excellent days out. We had with us a book called 'Notes from the Languedoc' by Rupert Wright - which turned out to be very useful as the author is writing about the area very close to Caux. He included cycle routes and descriptions of days out in the surrounding area.

Communications with Mike prior to our visit and the instructions provided were excellent. We had no problems when we were there - but knew we could call on Niall if required.

Overall we really enjoyed ourselves and have already booked to return in 2012.

Fantastic spacious holiday house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 2 other families for 2 weeks. All families had young children (aged 1-6). We all LOVED this house - it is in a beautiful and quiet location, and not overlooked by anyone, and yet on the edge of the (lovely) vilage Caux which has all the facilities you need on a day to day basis. The house was fully equipped with everything you need to cater for large groups - especially in the kitchen. There was lots of toys for the kids to play with - so much so that they prefered the house to going out!! The house was very spacious and with 11 of us in it - it didn't feel at all as though we were on top of each other. The area is very central to everything you would need on holiday -beautiful beaches, big supermarkets, the mountains, the lovely Pezenas... I would absolutely and totally recommend this house as the perfect holiday house in the Beziers area.

Our great holiday in Caux

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 9 young teachers and we got everything we were looking for: we could relax in our big garden, enjoy the quiet or swim in the pool, have breakfast on our great terrace with a view over the countryside and have a walk through the vineyards of Caux. The house was perfect for us because we had enough room to enjoy our time together. We were also very grateful for the house instructions we got, since it made our stay even more comfortable and enjoyable. We really felt at home and are planning our next holiday in Caux.

The house definitely lived up to our expectations.
