Holiday Home in Caux, Languedoc-Roussllon, France - Unique property between the mountains and the Mediterranean Sea
Step through the door into this property and you will be amazed.
Entering directly into the living room, you will see the original high vaulted ceiling that formed part of the original rampart fortress. Beautifully restored to an extremely high standard, the property is a tasteful and fascinating mixture of original features and modern necessities, including wireless high-speed internet access, satellite TV and air-conditioning.
All fixtures and fittings have been carefully thought-out and chosen for their aesthetic values and practicality.
A fantastic winding staircase lifts you throughout the house - its huge master bedroom with flat screen satellite TV, large, immaculate bathroom, summer kitchen and living area opening to a spacious roof terrace with panoramic views over the village and vineyards beyond.
A second mezzanine bedroom is also available to sleep two.
Tear yourself away from the house, and it's just a few steps into the traditional village with all shops and restaurants and a weekly market on Fridays. Vineyards surround the village like green oceans, while the Mediterranean and its beaches and seafood restaurants lies a short drive away.

Guestbook comments from the owner
"Our first visit here in this very peaceful and pretty little village. We have stayed in many 'gites' along the SW coast - and this beats them all. Exceptionally well kitted-out and decorated beautifully! We'd love to come back again!" Carolyn and Nigel, Glasgow, Scotland
"Accommodation first rate and more than we could have wished for - a delightfully quiet spot with polite and friendly neighbors. Accommodation first rate to an extent that we will happily recommend a stay to our friends and family." Audrey and Bill, Newark, England
"We had an amazing two weeks in this very special house. Loved the terrace, the gothic decor and the peace and quiet. We also enjoyed the cable TV, WiFi, and the very comfy bed! We hope to return!" Noel and Fleur, Dublin, Ireland

Unique and lovely location
We so enjoyed staying here. The location is excellent in the centre of the jolie medieval town of Caux. Inside the chapel arches and features are beautiful. The spiral staircase is unique and fun as long as your knees do not mind the workout between ground and second floor! The terrace at the top has stunning views and a great living space. It is right next to the church so the bells chime but it is pleasantly all part of the location. The house is spacious and well appointed. There is a road around the centre so parking is about 50 meters away but a bit tricky to work out where is ok and taking your car into the central tiny medieval streets is a no-no!
There is a bakery, butcher and grocer there and supermarkets/petrol in Pezanas a 15 minute drive away. The neighbours were friendly and very helpful. I would indeed return here again.
What a surprising, wonderful place!
We stayed here for nine months and loved it. What a surprising, wonderful place! Living room a vast medieval chapel, cool in summer, full of atmosphere. And, a cleverly designed modern, top floor terrace room with a second kitchen and marvellous views. In the middle a spacious bedroom with lots of closet space. Doors and fitting well made, especially in the generous shower room. A delight. We would be glad to live there!
