Caveirac Villa Rental Photos and Description

Max Beds: 8, Min Beds: 8, Double Beds: 4, Single Beds: 0, Baths: 2, Reference: 11392

Escape into the French country life of medieval castles, Provencal bastides and mas, and charming small towns. Become part of the town while staying at this wonderful 17th century stone house with a pool and modern décor. Warm in winter and cool in summer, this vacation villa rental in the region of Languedoc Roussillon provides the best of both worlds: village life and peaceful surroundings. Since the area is known for its wines, you can intersperse your walks or day trips with wine tasting in your own vacation rental in the South of France.

(700 m2/7,534)

The villa rental is a lovely 17th century stone house, typical of the area, with high, vaulted ceilings on the ground floor and huge wooden beams in the upstairs ceiling. The vacation rental property is enclosed with high walls and a security gate, opened by code or remote control. There is a cobbled courtyard garden with potted plants, shrubs, olive trees, grapevines, etc. The patio area is very private with a summer kitchen and barbecue area. There are tables, chairs, umbrellas, sun loungers, etc. Paths lined with tiles from the original roof lead to the beautiful swimming pool (45 m2) with jet stream and nighttime lighting. There are security child-proof barriers, as legally required in France. There is private parking available in front of the property or in a large car park at the rear of the property. The caretaker's house is located within the property grounds, but is private from the main house.

(230 m2/2,475 ft2)

Main Level: The main entrance leads from the garden into a reception area and beyond, into the fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, an oven, and a freezer. The open-plan dining area and living room are situated beneath impressive original vaulted stone ceilings. The décor is modern and tastefully designed in keeping with the character of the villa. The windows create a light and airy atmosphere. Furnishings include a dining table for eight, comfortable sofas and armchairs. Steps lead down to the utility area with washing machine and dryer and WC. From the living room, steps lead up to a TV room with comfortable sofas, desk, TV, VCR, and DVD player. From the living room, a spiral staircase leads to the upper level.

Upper Level: Up twenty stairs there is a spacious landing with high ceilings and exposed beams. On this level there are two double bedrooms (one with a king-sized bed and one with a standard double bed) and one twin-bedded room. All the bedrooms have built-in closets, dressing tables, and chairs. One of the bedrooms has a balcony with a table and chairs. There are two large bathrooms with double basins, large showers, and heated towel racks. One of the bathrooms also has a tub. The two WCs are separate. Steps lead to the mezzanine/attic level.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Everything we hoped it would be and more. HONEST. Our hosts were exemplary. France is fabulous. The people are very warm and PATIENT with visitors to their country that try to use their language when communicating. Lots of laughter!

Enjoyed Most:

The owners, our gracious hosts!

Surrounding Area:

Learning how to navigate the roundabouts.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Sommierers. No.

Tips or Restaurants:

Plan to cook in. Their kitchen is wonderful. Top of the line products. The vegetables, fruit and meat are soooooo good. We all commented on how much better they are in France. No pesticides or preservatives or hormones.

Directions:

Yes, we used a GPS. Everyone's and anyone's trip to the chateau would be easier than ours. We arrived the night of the very worst rain storm in 20 years! We still don't know how we made it.

Check In Out:

No. Very easy and efficient.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

We loved this property. We had a wonderful experience at La Maison du Gard. It was everything we had hoped it would be. The pictures do not really do this property justice.

Enjoyed Most:

It was such a peaceful, quiet retreat after the noise and extreme energy of Paris. The fact that Ray and Christine were just a phone call away if we needed help or guidance was very comforting. Loved having a French bakery right around the corner for wonderful taste treats! We did quite a bit of cooking in after having a great lunch in some of the nearby villages.

Enjoyed Least:

There was really only one restaurant within walking distance. I wish the village had been just a little bigger for a few more choices without getting in the car, but this is certainly not a deal breaker.

Surrounding Area:

We were close to lots of points of interest. Most places we wanted to see were an hour or so away, so doable in a day. We were able to do a couple of overnights to more distant points.

Nearby Events or Locales:

We were in the nearest small town. Caveirac has a wonderful supermarket with great meat and produce, there are three bakeries,a few small shops and hair salons. The only thing we couldn't walk to were a few more restaurants (there was really only one).

Tips or Restaurants:

The property was really well equipped. Whenever traveling in France, always bring washcloths. They had oodles of towels, both for bathing and the pool. The appliances are all of very high quality and easy to use. The kitchen was very well appointed and we cooked many a tasty meal in it. Christine and Ray are a wealth of information about area for restaurants and sight seeing.

Directions:

We used a GPS, but it was a year old program and Nimes (our arrival point from Paris) had changed all the traffic patterns 9 months ago so it didn't help us. Those planning to drive in France should really familiarize themselves with roundabouts (we haven't many here)and learn to understand the signage which is quite good once you catch on to it. GPS works great in countryside, but don't depend on it for cities as you loose satellite connection on narrow streets with tall buildings.

Check In Out:

It was very easy. Ray and Christine are wonderful hosts and made the whole process very easy. He has even developed a way to get the luggage up and downstairs without having to carry it!

  • 4 of 5

Overall:

The house was awesome. Kitchen was completely equipped. We have rented from RentVillas before. The house itself was really great. It has lots of charm and is cared for lovingly by the owners who live in an adjacent building. They were very helpful. Some people may be put off by having to climb a steep spiral staircase to get to the bedrooms. The owners have an ingenious rope and pulley system for hauling your luggage up and over the balcony railing.

Enjoyed Most:

The vaulted ceilings in the house and the spaciousness of the house.

Enjoyed Least:

We had expected that this house would be more rural, in a small town. The town actually turned out to be larger than expected so we missed that rural countryside feel and there was some amount of noise and no view whatsoever. The town was not charming. It had the feel of a suburb. You have to drive quite a ways to go on day trips to surrounding cities, but you drive through lovely scenery.

Surrounding Area:

Day trip to Avignon.

Nearby Events or Locales:

The house is in a small town. You can walk to the bakery for a breakfast baguette. There is one good restaurant, open on weekends, within walking distance of the house. It was excellent.

Tips or Restaurants:

Just be prepared that you have to be willing to drive a fair amount to get to interesting sites.

  • 4 of 5

Overall:

Our group of six adults had a wonderful stay at La Maison du Gard. The owners, Ray and Cristine, live next door and were very helpful and friendly.

Enjoyed Most:

Two things stand out about the property: the beautiful house itself and the great location in the small town of Caveirac.

Enjoyed Least:

The spiral staircase!

Surrounding Area:

Caveirac is nestled in the Vaunage, a beautiful little valley full of farms, vineyards and small towns.

Nearby Events or Locales:

There are many small towns around Caveirac, some within an hour's stroll and others an easy bike ride away.

Tips or Restaurants:

The local bistro in Caveirac has great ambiance and food. A good wine list, too!

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Our experience in the property was excellent. The kitchen was well equipped, the outside area and pool was lovely, and there was plenty of space for the six of us.

Enjoyed Most:

The outside eating area, garden, and pool were our favorite spots. The house was convenient to a large supermarket, and close to Nimes and several interesting smaller towns.

Enjoyed Least:

The spiral staircase might make it difficult for some people to get upstairs. Because of the beautiful stone ceilings there were no overhead lights which made it a little dark in the evenings.

Surrounding Area:

The city of Nimes was 10 minutes away and smaller towns had interesting markets as well. Sommieres was a lovely surprise when we traveled away from the direction of Nimes.

Nearby Events or Locales:

The house is in Caveirac which is tiny but it is nice to be able to walk 2 minutes to the bakery or the cafe.

Tips or Restaurants:

We ate in restaurants on day trips away from the property and cooked an evening meal, so really no recommendations.

Directions:

We used a GPS which led us through some of the little back streets of town (very narrow!), rather than leading us up the main street. We figured it out easily enough once we got there.

Check In Out:

The owners were very accommodating and made both check in and check out very easy. They were available as soon as we called and we never had to wait for them.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

We loved La Maison du Gard and were sad to leave. The location was great, as we were able to see many sites in Languedoc and Provence. In fact, we did so much that we felt we didn't have enough time at the property to fully enjoy it.

Enjoyed Most:

The backyard was beautiful. Most of the time that we were at the property, we were in the backyard. The kids loved the swimming pool and it was a beautiful setting for dinner. It was also neat being in a little village during the time of the festival.

Surrounding Area:

We spent a lot of time going to the different sites in the area, such as Pont du Gard, Nimes, Uzes, Les Baux, and St. Remy. It was very convenient.

Nearby Events or Locales:

We were located within the small town of Caveirac.

Tips or Restaurants:

We bought laundry soap and some spices while we were there, but otherwise it was very well-stocked. We didn't try the restaurant in town and we made most of the meals at home and enjoyed the pool.

Directions:

We called the property owner, Ray, a little before we arrived and he met us to guide us in, since there was a festival in town and some of the roads were closed.

Check In Out:

Ray and Christine were very nice and very informative.
