About the property

17th century stone house with pool

This spacious stone house forming part of the 17th century historical château, known also as 'Petit Verseilles' has been completely renovated to the very highest contemporary standards but sympathetically retaining the original historic architecture.

The living areas – kitchen, dining and lounge as well as the entertainment room – are subdivided by arches and impressive natural rock vaulted ceilings.

On the first floor there is a large landing with high ceilings and ancient beams from where to enter the four double bedrooms and two luxury bathrooms with separate toilets, all rooms are spacious, airy and tastefully equipped.

Within the extensive gardens of the property is a large inviting sunny swimming pool of 5x10m and patio area with adjoining sheltered summer kitchen and barbecue. There are large terrace areas for reclining and alfresco dining.

What to do in Caveirac: Walking and cycling routes are on our doorsteps and some hiking or mountain biking on our back hills, the beautiful and wild Garrigue.

Caveirac has a very attractive restaurant for fine dining and in the two bars you get your morning coffee with a croissant bought around the corner from our village baker or you enjoy a nice light lunch by watching the world go by. We have a very good butcher who also sells mouthwatering delicatessen and for the main shopping there is a good super market about 10 minutes walk from the La Maison Caveirac.

Throughout the year numerous cultural and historical festivals are held and you will feel invited to join in as well as participate in our daily village life. Starting around 14th of July, the Bastille Day, Caveirac is on 'fête' for 4 days and night. Throughout the year popular Château tours can be arranged on request.

Places to see: Nîmes 9 km:

On the border between Provence and Languedoc, the city boasts some of the most extensive Roman remains in Europe. Famous for its arena, the best preserved amphitheatre of the Roman era built under Emperor Augustus in the 1st century A.D. To be reached easily by bus from Caveirac.

Camargue 30 km:

Natural Park, around the Rhone Delta, home to bulls, wild white horses, flamingoes and with an exceptionally rich wild life. Best discovered slowly, on foot, on horseback, on a bicycle or in a boat. Bordered by 60 km of fine sand beaches, the Camargue is popular with sunbathers.

Arles 40 km:

Vibrant city of festivals, art and culture, with extraordinarily well-preserved Roman arena (the very same that was the scene of the Roman games in the 1st century!), backed by an equally impressive variety of other stones and monuments, both Roman and medieval. Linked with Gaugain, Van Gogh and Picasso.

What to do and see: There are many more places of history, interest and beauty which cannot all be all listed. To mention are activities like canoeing on the river Gardon passing below the impressive Pont du Gard, visiting the exceptional Bambousairy by steam train, horse riding along the Camargue beaches and marches, sunbathing along the endless beaches of l'espigette, or visiting one of the many colourful and lively markets.

At Maison Caveirac we have a wide collection of information about all those places, activities and history which may help to decide where to go and what to do.

Magical Maison Caveirac

  • 5 of 5

La Maison Caveirac is an absolute dream of a south of France "villa." It has been beautifully renovated in a modern style without sacrificing any of the original architectural elements such as vaulted stone ceilings and ancient wooden beams. The kitchen is superb, the bedrooms very comfortable and lovely, the living areas accommodating and roomy. And that's just the inside! The gardens and pool are perfect. And there is lovely space for dining al fresco. This is a perfect place to spend your vacation.

Je recommende chaudement ce gîte

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un moment délicieux dans le gîte de Ray et Christine à Caveirac. Caveirac est très bien situé : à quelques kilomètre de Nîmes, Arles, Aigues Mortes, Montpellier, Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer, de la Camargue. Ce gîte est très beau, bien conçu, très bien équipé. Je suis allée dans de nombreux gîte en France mais celui-ci les surpasse de loin. La maison est très belle, le jardin est bien entretenu, la piscine est rafraîchissante. La qualité des services fait la différence : tout y a été pensé ! Ray et Christine sont des hôtes charmants et attentionnés.
