About Jean Yves

Jean Yves purchased this house in 2013

Why Jean Yves chose Camargue - Costieres

Because we love old stone buildings and the Camargue, we fell in love with the charm of this location.

What makes this house unique

In the centre of the Camargue and with the sea less than 25 km away at the fishing village of Le Grau du Roi and the seaside resort of Port Camargue. The village of Le Cailar en Camargue is also very close to the cities of Nîmes and Montpellier, less than 30 minutes’ drive away.

Our house is located in a characteristic village in the region, the appearance of which is protected, and which lies in the heart of the Camargue countryside. Our 17th century home retains this peaceful countryside atmosphere with all the modern conveniences.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely charming property with all the facilities we needed. Very comfortable and full of character. Would happily endorse it and would book again. There was a problem with the drains - not in the house as it turned out but outside the property. Jean-Yves responded very quickly indeed and everything was sorted within an hour or so - impressive.

Very atmospheric property in a small, sympathetic village

  • 5 of 5

We - a family of 5, including three young kids - have stayed here for six weeks, and are very happy that we have chosen this lovely place for this special long period. As soon as you enter the porch, you feel the positive vibe of this charming house. The house is clean, well maintained and equipped, and stylishly furnished (style: 'less is more...'). Every room has its own pleasant atmosphere. The garden is very nice as well, with a pool, and the pool is heated which is great when you are staying early (or late) in the season. The village is off the main roads, small, but with a strong community, so there is often something going on. In the vicinity, there is lots to do, both seaside and inland, so we have not been bored. Whenever we needed assistance with something the landlord was most responsive. We would definitely recommend this place and are hopeful we will be able to come again next year!

Toller Urlaub, alles super!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine wunderschöne Woche hier verbracht. Das gesamte Anwesen hat einen besonderen Charme und wurde liebevoll restauriert. Der Bäcker und der sehr gute Metzger sind gleich um die Ecke, alle Sehenswürdigkeiten und die Strände sind schnell mit dem Auto erreichbar. Parkplätze waren immer in der Nähe des Hauses vorhanden.

Le centre de la Camargue

  • 5 of 5

Superbe cocon dans un décors de rêve. Parfaitement rénovée, accessible facilement cette maison permet d'accueillir trois familles en respectant l'intimité de chacun. Sortir la table de cuisine le midi et rentrer la table de jardin le soir a permis de manger à douze sans aucune gêne. L'accueil des propriétaires vous mets à l'aise immédiatement. Des la porte refermée vous vous sentez chez vous. Ajouter la meilleure boulangerie que j'ai fréquentée à moins de 30 mètres de la maison et vous aurez une bonne notion du luxe. A louer sans retenue, la maison et ses propriétaires sont à la hauteur de l'annonce.

Komfortable und authentische Ferienwohung in Dorflage

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung hat alles zu bieten, was man für einen angenehmen Aufenthalt benötigt - und noch mehr. Das Haus von ca. 1850 (?) ist weitestgehend wie gerade renoviert, entspricht dem lokalen Baustil und wirkt sehr authentisch. Schon bei der Vermietung wird sichergestellt, dass man offenen Fragen sofort loswerden kann und die Ankunft zeitlich flexibel abgestimmt. Die Küche bietet ausreichend Platz und ein sowohl quantitativ als auch qualitativ sehr gutes Inventar, um sich mit einer größeren Gruppe selbst zu versorgen. Auch ein fantastischer Gasgrill ist im Garten vorhanden. Ein Restaurantbesuch kam für uns damit nicht mehr in Frage :-). Lokal versorgen kann man sich direkt beim Bäcker, dem Tante Emmaladen sowie dem dazugehörigen spitzen Metzger (unbedingt die lokalen Stierwurstprodukte für kleines Geld probieren!), die alle gebündelt in 2 Minuten fußläufig erreichbar sind. Ein wenig Französisch ist jedoch hilfreich... Empfangen wird man dort mit echter Herzlichkeit und viel Französischem Charme - kleiner Kulturaustausch inklusive. Für den größeren Einkauf ist auch der nächste Supermarkt in <10min. mit dem Auto erreichbar. Das Dorf selbst hat darüber hinaus nicht viel zu bieten (außer die Festivitäten rund um die Stiere Ende September/Anfang Oktober, was wir leider knapp verpasst haben), ist aber ein perfekter Hub abseits des Massentourismus. Sollte man mal abends entspannen wollen, so bietet der Garten einen (beheizten und beleuchteten) Pool - oder man schaut den Goldfischen im Miniteich zu :). Alles in allem haben wir uns "zu Hause" und sehr wohl gefühlt. Wir würden sofort wiederkommen.

Port Camargue
Car: recommended

Le Cailar is a very ancient village. In the past, it was closer to the Rhône (whose course has changed over the centuries) and was virtually on the coast, which used to be accessed via a lagoon that is now silted up. It is now 15 or so kilometres away from the coast as the crow flies (this silting-up means that the coast has reclaimed land from the sea, which is therefore “further away”). This special position, in addition to its location at the confluence of two rivers called the Vistre and the Rhôny, made it a strategically location that was very early on an important one for the people who lived there. In days gone by, it was controlled by the Greeks and the Rhodians, until it became a small trading post and fishing harbour with a population of around 5,000 (compared with around 2,300 today).

It also has its own bullring, known as the Arènes du Cailar, used for novillada and courses camarguaises bullfighting, which was awarded French Historical Monument status on 18th January 1993. This has seating for more than 1,100 people and was built between 1900 and 1925 according to France’s fiche du patrimoine heritage register.

In addition to its historical monuments, the village is also where the Camargue bulls are bred and ridden. It is also especially notable due to its exceptional location in Petite Camargue, with its protected surrounding region, made up of grassland grazed by bulls and wild horses, and marshland, including the Marais de la Souteyranne, with a wide range of plants and animals. In the 19th century, Cailar was also home to the first manades (semi-feral herds) of bulls bred exclusively for course camarguaise bullfighting. This practice developed due to a surviving feudal right known as 'droit d’esplèche', giving village residents the right to use uncultivated land free of charge for grazing their herds. Nowadays it continues to be the village with the largest number of these prestigious farms, which is why it is known as the “capital” of the Petite Camargue.
