Work on converting the Bastide into the 6 luxury apartments that we have today began in early 2007 & was completed in mid 2008 . Because of the age of the building a lot of renovation work was required in order to retain the character of such a beautiful 19th century building . Now aproximately 10 years on we still get a thrill out of sharing this place with our guests . So whether you are seeking a relaxing break by the pool, enjoying the countryside, sampling the superb wines from nearby vineyards, sight seeing, or a more active holiday, La Bastide des Lavandières apartments are ideally placed. We are sure you will love your stay here and this wonderful area of france as much as we do
Sean purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Sean chose Canaules-et-Argentières
For over a century & a half La Bastide des Lavandieres has been a prominent feature in the small village of Canaules . Originally constructed in 1850 it has had a few different & diverse existenses during the intervening years . At various times during the 160 years or so it has been here the building has served the village as both a small hotel , a cafe & during the 50's & 60's - a chique French nightclub . Canaules is now a quiet village but during this period it was actually known as "The Saint-Tropez of the Cevennes" Among some of the high profile personalities who performed there was the French Elvis - Johnny Hallyday who sadly passed away recently . He may not be widely known outside of France but he has had over 50 years of a career in music. He was & is still one of France's biggest stars having performed in front of 15 million people & sold over 100 million records - 18 of which were platinum albums . Other famous French singers performed in Canaules also including Jacques Brel , Francoise Hardy & Charles Aznavour . This apartment was originally a part of the night club .

Dommage que la climatisation ne soit pas meilleure et l'absence terrasse privative
Merci Caroline .
Nous prévoyons d'améliorer la climatisation . Malheureusement, il a fait exceptionnellement chaud lors de votre visite cet été. Nous espérons que vous reviendrez
Bel appartement, spacieux et très bien situé. Il nous manqué un balcon pour profiter de la vue depuis le 2ème étage.
La propreté n est pas au top et les casseroles seraient à changer!
Heerlijk ruim en schoon opgezet!!
We hebben genoten van ons verblijf!!
Lekker groot opgezet , kom zeker een keer terug als we weer richting Frankrijk op vakantie gaan. Echt een aanrader!’

Perfect location to explore the Languedoc. Very helpful owner. Everything perfectly organized.
Für mehrere Erwachsene oder eine größere Familie bis etwa 6 Personen vollständig und großzügig ausgestattet. Durch die Galerie sehr großzügiges Raumgefühl. Gut gepflegter großer Pool. Der Vermieter erwies sich als sehr hilfsbereit bei allen möglichen Fragen und mit Tips zur Umgebung. Ausgezeichnete Ausgangslage zur Erkundung dieses schönen Teils von Frankreich mit vielfältigen Zielen in der nahen Umgebung.
