About Vince and Eva Morris
Now living in France with my wife Eva, my profession is teaching martial arts and law enforcement. Originally from the UK and Germany, we discovered the Languedoc area and love living here and sharing our local knowledge with our guests.
Vince and Eva Morris purchased this House in 2012
Why Vince and Eva Morris chose Faugères
When looking for a place in France we immediately fell in love with the house! Nestled in the surrounding hills, the small hamlet of La Caumette just breathes history and tradition, but at the same time it is not remote; Everything is there: The wine, the hills, the beach and of course a bit further the bustling life in Montpellier within a hour's drive.
What makes this House unique
We have a big folder for our visitors with brochures of what's going on in the area and places to visit. And most of visitors make great plans to see this, do that, or go to the beach, but just end up staying around the house and pool area, enjoying the sun, peace and quiet. You will love it!
We love animals.

So nice to meet you and thank you for leaving the house so tidy and the good review! All the best and maybe until next year...
Great house in a very peaceful location
This house was a lovely well presented home for our two week holiday. The pool area was excellent and safe for our young children. Eva and Vince were very helpful whenever we needed information or help. Overall a great place to stay and would love to visit again when we next holiday in France.
A wonderful family holiday
We have just experienced the perfect villa for a family. We booked the villa hoping it would be suitable for two families with children aged between 7 years to 15 years. This villa exceeded our expectations. The decor is beautiful and the villa has a special wow factor as you walk in. The rooms are bright, airy and exactly as described. The pool is totally private, crystal clear and well maintained. The attention to detail is evident everywhere. The ultimate winner for us was the owners of the villa are close by, non intrusive but readily available to help with any villa related question and our enthusiasm to learn about the area. A 'must see' villa for any family. Thank you for our special holiday.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We hope to see you back here again some time! All our best wishes. Eva & Vince
Delightful holiday home
Three generations of our family have enjoyed a fantastic holiday at this lovely well equipped house situated in the hillside village of La Caumette. We made good use of the (secret) garden opposite the house which was a delight with its swimming pool, barbecue and petanque/badminton court with convenient shaded areas. The old bakery also had the provision of a summer kitchen and toilet. Within easy driving distance from the house there is plenty to amuse all ages. Our hosts Vince and Eva gave help and advice when requested and made us very welcome. We will certainly recommend Maison de Maitre and should the opportunity arise return ourselves.
Thank you for your review. It was really nice having you here and great to see you enjoy your stay so much - having two weeks to explore the area is such a bonus. We look forward to maybe seeing you again at La Caumette there is still a lot more to do here. ;-) Best wishes to the whole family, Eva & Vince
Maison de Maître La Caumette - FR19524
The property was accurately described, very homely, well maintained and clean with lots of space for 10 people.
There are different areas in the house and gardens to relax on your own or with family and friends.
Great service from Eva and Vince when required.
Would very much recommend this property without any hesitation.
The property is situated in lovely hills.
The road cycling is fantastic. especially if you like the challenge of a few cols. The Tour De France passed through here in 2013 (Stage 7) traversing some of the nearby cols.
The nearest supermarkets and town are just a 10 minute drive away.
The walking in this area is also great with many route options through the hills and woods and along the hill ridge tops.
If you're a mountain biker there are many off road route options as well, either uphill, downhill or traversing across the hilltop ridge tracks.
We only went to the coast once as we're not really beach lovers, but if you are then it's about a 30 minute drive with many beaches to choose from.
There is no bar or restaurant within walking distance, but there is lots of choice if you don't mind a short drive.
If you like good food then go to Auberge de Combes, a 20 minute drive through the hills. It has fantastic food and a great location with a incredible views.
A beautiful house with incredible views, a fabulous pool and very friendly and helpful hosts. It had everything we needed - so we just needed to turn up and enjoy it.
We have an endless stretch of beautiful beaches on the Med, whithin a 35 minutes drive.
Airports within 1 hour drive are: Beziers Vias, Montpellier.

Excellent cycling (road, cycle paths, mountain biking) in the area! Other activities include kayaking, rock climbing, carting, pony riding.
