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.
Family of 6. We travelled to France with the idea we would bike around the Camargues. Contrary to other trips, our objectives actually materialised! Thanks to the perfect location of the house, we were able to forget the car and travel around on our bikes! It was ideal for 4 full days. Silvia (the owner)'s help was fundamental (maps, taking the time to explain how to get here and there, secret entrances to backlands etc, activities in the town during our stay..). At first we thought that the house was perhaps a bit small for all 6 of us, but in the end it worked out fine. Impeccable owner, impeccable stay.
