We were initially daunted by the manual that we were given prior to arrival informing us of things that had to be adhered to, as 15 pages can be quite a lot to digest initially and with 5 children 10 and under we were starting to become worried. We shouldn't have been as we soon learnt that this attention to detail helped us to get the best from the house and that everything was covered, even the ring binder inside the property of things to do. The pictures do not do this property justice and it was perfect for our 2 weeks its like a rabbit warren of different levels with rooms appearing from nowhere. 3 bedrooms have aircon although the third is a particularly old unit and doesn't work very well. The fridge freezer is very temperamental and one day will fully defrost and the next freeze, hard to purchase anything to go in here as unsure how it will keep. Did not want to inform property manager as there is a call out charge and the problem is intermittent. The location of Caux itself is ideal as you are only 30-40 minutes away from beaches and the mountains so best of both worlds. We were really lucky to be staying there for the town festival and all the locals greeted us warmly.

Stayed here for a week beginning of September and was delighted to arrive to a villa that exceeded expectations. Based on the surroundings of a lovely Village called Caux it had all the amenities necessary. We enjoyed the local Boulangerie each morning, had a delicious French meal in the restaurant opposite the square and bought local produce from the Friday market to make our own Moules Frites. The villa had plenty of room and benefits from a large walled poolside patio area where plenty of people can dine and relax. As the sun moved thoughout the evening we were able to go up to the other balcony and rooftop sun deck to ensure we didnt miss any rays. Also well placed for nearby Pezenas with its multiple restaurants and bars, a delightful town to wander at night and enjoy some jazz outside while dining. A truly great find and would highly recommend it.
