Canaules-et-Argentieres Apartment Rental Photos and Description

6 Large Apartments with 12m x 6m Swimming pool + UK TV & Radio & Free WiFi

The apartments building is located in the centre of the little village of Canaules between the Mediterranean coast & the Cevennes Mountains . It is just a 15 minute drive from Anduze ( the Gateway to the Cevennes ) . Anduze is a thriving tourist town with a good selection of restaurants and cafés all along the main street . It really comes alive at weekends but is also worth a visit in midweek for the Wednesday night market or the Thursday morning traditional market . Also 15 minutes away you will find the larger town of Alés . This is one of the biggest towns in the region and it has all of the facilities , attractions & shopping options you would expect to find in any large town . In Alés also you will find a sandy river beach open June to August. There is entertainment laid on, easy parking and clear shallow water for swimming. Nearby also ( within 1 hour ) are the exciting cities of Nimes & Montpellier as well as the beaches of the Mediterranean & the ski resorts of the Cevennes.

With 6 apartments in total La Bastide des Lavandieres can accommodate everything from couples & families to large touring groups . Please contact us directly with your requirements or see our other listings for individual apartments on the Holiday Rentals website .

Our caretakers Gerry & Jenny can now offer the following services for guests - Home cooked meal upon arrival or during your stay , Pre-Arrival Shopping ( Just tell them what you want in your apartment and they will have it there for you when you arrive ) Party catering for groups / families , Packed Lunches , Baby sitting & in our new poolside bar / café we serve drinks & light snacks during the day & evenings.

The list of activities and things to do in Languedoc Roussillon, is absolutely endless. You'll find water practically everywhere so there's no shortage of canal boating, canoeing, sailing, windsurfing, fishing and swimming . Three mountain ranges make skiing, rock climbing and walking great options too. Golf , tennis & horseriding are all nearby also.

For the slightly more adventurous, there's ballooning (there's nothing like floating over the rivers and vineyards of Languedoc on a summer's day), paragliding and flying (guided flights over the Cathar castles are highly recommended). For equestrians, there's France's most famous horse trail (Le Sentier Cathar), and for ornithologists, the variety of birds in Languedoc, especially in the mountainous and swamp regions, with everything from vultures to pelicans.

Flights to Languedoc are multiplying, thanks to the low-cost airline boom, which has brought down prices and opened up small airports . As a result flights to Languedoc are now surprisingly cheap. Excellent motorways mean that the many airports near Languedoc are also a great option if you're visiting the region. You can even fly into Girona in Spain and stock up on spirits at the border! . (Information courtesy of Creme de Languedoc)

Food & Drink : Nearby you will find many small villages & towns which have an abundance of places for eating & drinking . There's one small bar / restaurant in Saint-Jean-De-Serres which is just 1.5 km away. You can also get really good take-away pizza here . A little further on in Ledignan (5km's) there are a couple of places to eat & drink as well as another pizza take-away . For a selection of Bars & Restaurant's there is of course nearby Lezan which is just 4 km away . Sauve (11 km's away) has some very good restaurants hidden among it's narrow streets as has it's next door neighbour - Quissac (10.4 km's from Canaules) where you will also find a nice fast food / take-away. For a bigger choice of restaurants visit nearby Anduze (known as the gateway to the Cevennes). Here you will find many family friendly restaurants side by side along the main street . During the Summer months in particular Anduze is buzzing with tourist activity but even during the quiet Winter months Anduze has a feeling of excitement about it that is difficult to describe .

Please visit our website ( link below) for extensive information about activities & attractions available in the Languedoc region & nearby .

Hi / Bonjour,

We would like to introduce ourselves and let you know a little bit about us. We are Jenny and Gerry and we look forward to welcoming you to La Bastide des Lavandières. We will be here to meet you on your arrival to get you settled in, and be on hand should you need anything during your stay.

We are happy to help with any local knowledge, suggestions for trips and activities, and offer various services to enhance your enjoyment of these comfortable and well equipped apartments. Pre-arrival grocery shopping, meals on arrival, picnics etc are some of the services available. For full details of all services we can provide during your stay please contact us via email at

jennyandgerry@canaules.com

Gerry speaks fluent French, Italian, and some Spanish and German. He was born a Belgian, educated a Frenchman and bred an Englishman. I, Jenny, am English and I am working on my french. My franglais is very 'Allo Allo' but I've become very good at charades to get myself understood.

Jenny / Gerry / Sean purchased this apartment in 2007

Both Gerry and I adore France, the countryside, the food, the weather and the wine. We feel very privileged to have the opportunity to look after this beautiful building in such an exquisite part of France.

We've visited France nearly every year in one area or another, including a 3 month trip around France in a small camper van (or hot tin can, as it felt at the time). We can honestly say that having been here in Canaules, it is the most quintessential France we have yet seen. We are both keen skiers and spend time, every winter, in Montgenevre on the French Italian border.

Whether you are seeking a relaxing break by the pool, enjoying the countryside, sampling the superb wines from nearby vineyards, sight seeing, or a more active holiday, La Bastide des Lavandières apartments are ideally placed.

We are sure you will love you stay at La Bastide des Lavandières and this wonderful area of france as much as we do, contact us for any further information you would like via email at

jennyandgerry@canaules.com or you can telephone us on +33 98 040 1972.

A LOVELY STAY IN A FABULOUS LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The week we spent at La Bastide des Lavandieres was one of the best of our 6 week trip through France. We wished we could have spent longer. The apartment was very modern and had everything you needed. The pool was an added bonus that we enjoyed every day. The pool house was great and we enjoyed many a beverage there with other guests and the caretakers. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this accommodation and only wish we didn't live so far away in Australia so we could come back sooner.
SUGGESTIONS It was perfect just the way it way! Wish we could come back sooner!

The caretakers Jenny and Gerry were fantastic. They greeted us on arrival and were so friendly and helpful. The kids loved their little dog Ted and played with him heaps. We enjoyed spending time with Gerry and Jenny and had drinks by the pool, dinner at a lovely restaurant nearby and also wine tasting at the owner's vineyards. Gerry also accompanied us to the doctors when my little boy got sick and translated for us. He then helped with the medicine dosage too. This went above and beyond and demonstrates what caring people they are. They are brilliant!

THIS IS HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
Having stayed a few times at La Bastide des Lavandieres, the last time being in October 2009 and we intend returning to Canaules within the next few months, we cannot praise it enough. This apartment offers space, a home away from home and yet you know that you are on vacation. The service to arrange the booking is always very helpful.The apartment is maintained to a very high standard and is very clean. The apartment is large and well equipped with good quality furniture and appliances. Outside the patio is very spacious and the surrounding gardens and pool amenities are spacious and very relaxing - it is an ideal place for both couples and families.
Canaules is where a person can go to just relax and recharge the batteries and yet should you wish to venture elsewhere there are many activities available to take advantage of, ranging from horse riding, canoeing on the rivers or just going for a walk amongst the surrounding countryside and villages. You are surrounded by amazing scenery in this location of the Languedoc and you get to spend a few days living within a French village and to savour all its charm. However, there are many towns and cities within an hour's drive of Canaules such as Ales, Montpellier depending on how busy a town you want.
La Bastide des Lavandieres will always be a place that we look forward to returning to time and time again.

IT WAS THE BEST HOLIDAY BY FAR

  • 5 of 5
myself and my daughter went to la bastide on a short holiday , i most say i was very impressed with how child friendly this place was .there is a pool , a park and and kids play area. plenty to keep a child's mind occupied. it was relaxing and peaceful. and lets face it when you do get a chance to get away they are the main things that you are looking for with a holiday. i've been to a lot of places but this was the most relaxed holiday i've had in a long time .

EXACTLY WHAT WE WANTED

  • 5 of 5
My wife found this place quite by accident . She was googling another apartment complex in the same area when she found La Bastide instead . What a happy accident it turned out to be . We loved the sense of relaxation that we found in the little village of Canaules where the apartment is located . Also it was nice to have so many large towns and cities within a short drive while still being located in the heart of the countryside . The apartment itself was absolutely huge and spotlessly clean . It felt like we were in a house rather than an apartment as there was just my wife and myself . There was a lovely large private terrace on the sunniest side of the building where we had our breakfast each morning and we also used the barbecue provided on a few occassions in the evenings . One of the owners - Noel lives on site and we found him to be very helpful . He brought us to see his vineyard and he also took us out to some nearby restaurants which were really nice and quite cheap . This is a lovely area of France and although we like to go somewhere new each year I would be tempted to return to both the apartments and the area at some future date
