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! .

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 .

About Jenny / Gerry / Sean

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

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

Why Jenny / Gerry / Sean chose Canaules-et-Argentieres

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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 or you can telephone us on +33 98 040 1972.

La Bastide des Lavandieres

  • 5 of 5
La Bastide des Lavandieres is the perfect location for a family holiday - beautiful apartments, spacious outdoor facilities with great pool and play area. A lovely building,tastefully renovated and extremely well appointed apartments. Very adaptable so ideal for a large family holiday like ours - 8 adults, 3 small boys. Lovely outdoor space and wonderful pool area. Excellent play area for the boys and loads of toys etc. Pool bar really well done out by Jenny & Gerry provided a very welcome bit of shade by day and lots of fun in the evening ! A wonderful spot to relax and unwind .
We cannot speak highly enough of Jenny and Gerry. They were always friendly, very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. They were informative and always on hand. Gerry took us to the local vineyard - where we understand you have some vines - and his fluent french was invaluable. They were particularly good with the children frequently coming back with more bits and pieces to keep them entertained and Gerry even took time out to teach 4 year old George to play chess! The collection of hats in the pool bar provided plenty of laughs in the evening and we mustn't forget Teddy their dog - a great hit with the boys . You provide the perfect location for a great holiday no matter how large or small the group. Thank you for a lovely family holiday. We shall be happy to recommend La Bastide des Lavandieres to anyone.
