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.

What to do and see: There are many more places of history, interest and beauty which cannot all be all listed.
