“Great Village Retreat”
We had a great stay at this charming retreat near Pezenas. It offered all the amenities needed to make our visit totally comfortable. The village had a great Boulanger and small grocery store. Easy access to Pezenas as well as the A75 Autoroute allowed us to easily enjoy all area attractions. Pezenas has a vibrant culinary town with several outstanding restaurants that were even open around the holidays when many places tend to be closed. Carolyn is a gracious host being very quick to respond to all communications and has worked hard to provide robust infirmation of all area activities that was very helpful. We had a great time and can gladly recommend these accommodations for your upcoming stay in Southern France.
Response from the owner Dear Sam and Marie Thanks for your kind words. I am so glad you had a great holiday and that my tips were helpful to you! All the best, Carolyn
“Relaxing in the Sun”
The Villa was a great place to get away from the the North american lifestyle. It is quite, relaxing and has the stuff you need, wine, cheese and great bread. We found the owner to over top and straight as an arrow. You need a car, a book and not too much money. All and all a great deal for a week or two in totally different part of the world. The location and the villa will grow on you.
“Home from home in rural France”
This is a well appointed property which comfortably accommodates a family. It was very clean on arrival, fully furnished, the kitchen has everything you need for basic cooking and the extra WC was very useful. The enormous roof terrace is very private and a real boon. The village itself is lovely, historic buildings, friendly people and good basic shops. It is a bit more upmarket than some of the other villages in the general area. It's well appointed in terms of travelling, close to the major routes and within a grid of smaller roads interconnecting all the main towns in close proximity that you would want to visit. The owner was extremely helpful from day 1 through to a speedy return of the deposit and was generous enough to share local knowledge which greatly enhanced our stay. This is a beautiful part of France, breathtaking scenery, unpretentious people, good beaches/mountains within half an hour and great for fresh locally sourced high quality food and wine.
“What a Gem!”
There were four adults in our party. We found the house very comfortable, we all felt at home. The rooftop terrace was lovely, what a view. The two flights of stairs to the terrace kept us fit, completely worth it for a barbeque in the evening. Locals very friendly. Would definately recommend it.
“Peaceful and Relaxing Holiday”
We took our two children (aged 2 and 4) and spent an enjoyable week staying in this quiet village. It has everything you need for a week's holiday and is surrounded by lots of interesting places to visit, including nearby Pezenas. The owner left a helpful itinary of things to do and see. The weather was perfect and the roof terrace an added bonus on which to spend time relaxing during the evenings.
“nice stay in Castelneau”
We had a wonderful stay at Carolyn's place. The house is as described by the host (small village surrounded by several vineyards). The terrace has a very nice view on the church and the moutains. The house is well located, not too far from the sea (Bouzigues, Meze, marseillan etc.), several small old villages (Pezenas, st-guilhem etc) and nice caves (Grotte de Clamousse, grotte des Demoiselles etc). Carolyn gave us a lot of information about the region, what to visit and where to swim - it was well appreciated. My teenagers swam in the river nearby and enjoyed it. Yes, the croissants from the bakery are excellent! Thank you for the stay Carolyn! Sylvie, Gatineau, Quebec
This is the first time we have rented a house and so were not sure what to expect but we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would definitely do this again. The village of Castelnau de Guers is quiet and peaceful. As for the location; this was perfect for driving through the french country side visiting beaches and towns for sight seeing plus very convenient for general shopping. The addition of the roof terrace was lovely, in the evening particularly as it became too hot in the mornings. The house itself porvided everything and more. Although we barely used the lounge area it was comortable and had everything available including wifi access. The kitchen was fully equipped and there were basic foodstuffs available for use also if you needed them. We could even have done some washing but we didn't get around to that somehow. We had a contact person if we needed any advice on the area both before and during our stay. The contact with the owner was also quick and easy. We thoroughly enjoyed the week and wish we'd had longer! would definitley recommend this house and areas to anyone. There were only two of us but the house was easily big enough for 4 people. Great value for money and we would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone.
“Lovely Spot in Southern France”
We had such a lovely time here. The village dates back to the 8th century and has castle ruins, a small village square, a little grocery, boulangerie, and cafe. Just what you need for very basics and then a 5 minute drive to Pezanas where you can get everything else. The village is surround by vineyards and there is a lovely winemaker - Christopher from Domaine Castelnau that gave us a private tour and a fantastic tasting session. We walked through the vineyards every morning and swam at the river as well. Everyone we encountered was friendly and we felt like we were probably some of the only tourists there so we got the feel of a traditional southern France village. The place was perfect for a family of four. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking, good wifi for connectivity, good shower, and the terrace is the best! We had most of our meals up there - beautiful sunsets over the vineyards and quiet - really a very quiet little spot in general. The location was excellent for exploring mediterranean beaches (20 minute drive), historic sites, and vineyards. We were there for a week and wished we had at least one more!
One of the nicest holidays ever, in a countryside of unbelievable beauty. The "maison" is roomy and comfortable. The villagers are hospitable and fun to be with. There's a lovely, safe beach on a river (the Herault) running through town, and good shopping (and great food) in nearby Pezenas. The villa has wireless internet access, making it easy to stay in touch with the rest of the world -- if you really want to!
“Great Part of France to Visit”
We have just returned from a month in Castlenau-de-Gers. We really loved the house, the medieval village and the very interesting Pezenas, with it's history, architecture, restaurants and craft shops. Good market every Saturday. There is so much to do in the area that a month was not at all too much, provided you have a car. Surprisingly for us we even found the bed and the sofa comfortable for that length of time unlike so many other places we have been. The Terrace, however, is the outstanding feature of the house. It is totally private when you lie down but has great views in all directions when you stand up.
