Your strong and exuberant hostess loves house and garden passionately. It's shuttered against the summer heat and is an oasis even in winter

Read guest comments

On the edge of unspoilt woodland, in a garden full of trees and colour where 23 tortoises roam (no touching please)... it's hard to believe you're a tram ride from Montpellier. The house is recent, the vegetation lush, the tempting pool (mind the alarm) set among atmospheric stone 'ruins'. In the house are small but comfortable beds in pretty rooms (shuttered in summer) full of family pieces and colour, a good shower room and doors to the terrace. Outside is a sweet little independent 'studio' for two. Your exuberant, dynamic hostess loves this place passionately, her garden is an oasis even in winter and the beach is nearby.

Local points of interest from Dominique Cailleau:

Local points of interest from
Dominique Cailleau:

  • Montpellier, a buzzing university city with historic buildings, lots of cultural life and excellent museums, including the newly renovated Muséé Fabre, is a quarter of an hour away by the spanking new city tram service.
  • To the west, the little old fishing harbours of the Etang de Thau - Sète, Mèze, Marseillan - are excellent for day trips, serving fresh seafood and offering traditional jousting matches all through the summer.
  • To the east lies atmospheric, walled medieval Aigues Mortes, the gateway to the Camargue, the huge swathe of marshland that is the Rhône delta. Here, pink flamingoes and white horses graze alongside great black fighting bulls.
  • Saintes Maries de la Mer, the 'capital' of the Camargue, is home to an annual Rom or gypsy gathering and the site of a legend according to which Joseph of Arimathea arrived here after the crucifixion of Christ with Mary Magdalene and the Holy Grail.
  • St Guilhem le Désert (in the mountains) is also a must along with Espiguette beach in Le Grau du Roi.

"Stayed in the 'pavilion' for one week. Extremely comfortable accommodation, very welcoming host in Dominique. Loved the superb swimming pool and beautiful gardens. A real haven. Will definitely return!"
August 2013
"We received a very warm welcome from Dominique, the owner. Our room was off a lovely terrace overlooking a large and very green garden. It was great to start the day by having breakfast there on fine days. The room was comfortable and very clean and we really enjoyed our time there. The swimming pool was a great plus. Castle Cottage is just outside Montpelier but it's easy to get into town thanks to the very efficient tram system. Dominique is also very helpful in offering suggestions of where's good to visit. We'd certainly go back there if we visit the region again. "
