This unique oasis in LeCailar, a well-kept village in the heart of the camarque, is hard to capture in words, but appropriate adjectives may include: tranquil, timeless, complete, authentic, spacious. Once you close the yard gate, the property becomes its own world. We stayed for two weeks, with two familys and a total of 5 kids, ages 1 - 8. The house is big enough for everyone to spend time together or to find a quiet place. We made outings to Aigues Mortes, Pont du Gard, Montpellier, Arles, Ardece. Our favorite beach was Ste Marie de la Mer. We didn't mind the driving (30-50min to most places) as the whole area is quite scenic. We also enjoyed whole or half days at the house, using the pool and BBQing steaks and sausages from the 2 (!) butchers in the village. The Camarque has a tradition of raising bulls (and bull fighting), and the butchers' specialty is bull meat.
We had one technical issue with the pool; Jean Yves was highly responsive in taking care of it, and communication was excellent.
In summary, if you are looking for a big family vacation, you like cultural immersion, simple luxury, old stone buildings, and a place to retreat to, this house is for you - enjoy.
We enjoyed our stay in Calvisson - although very hot in July, the property is well appointed with most amenities necessary. The pool was a nice way to cool off from our days of touring, and as previously mentioned ceiling fans would help cool the interiors, as there is no AC. The charm of the property, location in town and cleanliness were first class.
Sheila and Ken went out of their way to accommodate reservation challenges we had with the website, staying in daily contact, assuring us that our reservation was valid and our dates were reserved. Thank you for a wonderful trip!
