Les Cèdres is a preserved, large and comfortable 19th century Maison de Maître wine domain, tastefully updated, set in walled grounds in the heart of the medieval village of Caux. Expect character and authenticity set in the heart of a Languedoc wine village with deceptively large park-like gardens, excellent facilities including sauna, swimming pool, summer kitchen and original features throughout.

If you are looking for something a little different for your Languedoc holiday this year with a touch of old-fashioned French charm, we think Les Cèdres might just be what you're looking for. In the heart of the village, located on a narrow street, Les Cèdres can accommodate up to 12 in seven beautifully renovated bedrooms, and boasts further exquisite features including tiled floors, ornate wrought iron balconies, wooden shutters and wonderful stone staircase. Communal rooms include a library, sitting room and kitchen, all of which are comfortable and welcoming. There is even an independant large media and office space for those that might need to work whilst away. The adjacent outbuildings hide a sauna, whilst the outside pool terrace boasts a summer kitchen to enjoy those lengthy lunches around the pool in the sun. But that's not all! Les Cèdres boasts a large enclosed park style garden with mature cedar and oak trees, landscaped terraces, grassy areas, and pathways. A north African style courtyard offers tranquillity for a moment of peaceful contemplation, and a boules area will entertain on a warm summer's evening.

Being in the village of Caux makes buying the morning baguette easy on foot. There are basic amenities in the village with further restaurants and shops in the village of Roujan (6km) where you will also find a larger supermarket. Wine, vineyards and plenty of wineries are close by. Wine lovers will no doubt visit the surrounding villages to taste and purchase, either to accompany your evening meals or to take home; there is a huge choice in the area.

The historic town of Pézenas (8km) is well worth a visit and has all the charm and authenticity you would expect from a medieval French town. Its streets are lined with stone arched boutiques, restaurants and cafés serving coffees and enticing pastries. Pézenas also has historic links with the famed French playwright, actor and poet Molière, widely regarded as one of the greatest writers in the French language. Day trips from Les Cèdres must include the beach at resorts such as Marseillan-Plage (33km) or the ancient port city of Agde (30km). Delicious shellfish can be tasted in Mèze (25km) on the shores of the Étang de Thau, a vast inland lagoon with its own beaches and unique flora and fauna. The vibrant and contemporary architecture of Montpellier is an hour's drive away (62km) and the city has an international airport which is most convenient for Les Cèdres. Carcassonne, famous for being one of the only fortified cities in Europe still with its walls intact, is just over an hour’s drive.

  • The pool is open mid May - end of September only. Other periods may be available on request before booking.
  • Please note that there is a local tourist tax to pay: £2.45 per night for guests aged 18 and over.
  • Open fire available with first bucket of wood provided. Extra buckets payable locally.

Location of Les Cedres


Great Things to Do Near Les Cedres

Taste the local wines

In such a key wine-growing area, it would be almost a crime not to sample some Languedoc wines during your visit! You can even take a vineyard tour to see a little behind the scenes and meet the vintners.

Walking and cycling

Bike hire is available in Pézenas and there is plenty of opportunity for cycling as well as walking in the surrounding countryside, which is characterised by rows of vines. Families will find easy-going routes suitable for all ages alongside the Canal du Midi.

Market day

Every Saturday morning, local traders set up their stalls in Pézenas for the large weekly market, a riot of colour and activity. Browse the wares, taste some regional specialities, and buy fresh produce for your meals back at the villa.

Game set match!

There are tennis courts in Pézenas. Don't forget to bring your racquets with you!

Day at the beach

With its 6km of fine sand, family-friendly Marseillan-Plage can be reached within half an hour. Just along the coast, Agde is a pretty town and popular seaside resort with several beaches, and also a large water park which might be a draw especially for the younger members of your party!

Discover Pézenas

Take a leisurely stroll around your local town, an utterly charming place with much of historic interest, and a lovely atmosphere thanks in part to its antiques and arty shops. Stop for a drink or lunch in one of the many cafés and restaurants.

The harbour town of Sète

Head down to Sète, where an authentic fishing village feel prevails. Unusually perched on a narrow strip of land between a large enclosed lagoon and the wide Mediterranean, with a canal between the two passing through the town, there seems to be water everywhere you look! Unsurprisingly therefore it is nicknamed the 'Venice of the Languedoc'. Drawbridges and swing bridges cross the canalways which are lined by colourful buildings, and it is fascinating to watch the comings and goings of the brightly painted boats around the fishing port and the pleasure craft in the marina. Maritime traditions have survived here, and a famous sailing festival is held in April, called Escale à Sète.

A picture postcard walled city

As you approach Carcassonne, the sight of the medieval cité sitting atop its hill guarded by multi-tower ramparts won't fail to inspire. This superbly restored fortified town is a real delight to behold, with its fairytale turrets and cobbled streets full of boutique shops and inviting restaurants. It also has a dramatic history to discover, with stories of siege and tragedy as well as trade and prosperity. For all these reasons, it is deservedly popular, so we recommend getting there early in the day.

Get to know Molière

Pézenas has a special connection to the playwright, Molière, who spent time here with his travelling theatre company. A festival celebrating his works is held every year in June. You will come across various mentions of Molière around the town, including his famous armchair which can be seen in the Vulliod Saint Germain museum.

Visit Narbonne

Take a day trip to this attractive and interesting city which was once a seaport but now lies about 15km inland due to centuries of silt pushing the shoreline out. However, the Canal de la Robine offers a pleasant waterside setting for a stroll. After working up an appetite, the large covered marketplace, Les Halles, is a great place for soaking up the atmosphere whilst sampling some tasty morsels. In the afternoon, take in the sights which include a partially built cathedral, the medieval bishop’s palace with museum and art gallery, and the Horreum, a Roman underground warehouse.

If you have a taste for adventure...

Perhaps particularly to keep your older children and teenagers entertained, but anyone with a taste for adventure can head for the Gout d'Aventure activity centre about 12km east of Pézenas. They offer archery sessions, a ‘Go Ape’ style treetop obstacle course with rope bridges etc. and more adventurous sports such as canyoning, canoeing, rafting, mountain biking, via ferrata, climbing and caving.

Water sports

... can be enjoyed on the coast at Cap d'Agde (sailing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, stand-up paddling, canoeing, kayaking, jet-skiing and rubber ring tow rides) or on the lake at Marseillan (canoeing & kayaking, boat hire).

Amusements and theme parks

At Marseillan-Plage there are several attractions on the same site, including Pirateland water park, mini-golf, go-karting, a paintball and laser game centre, and an evening amusement park with funfair rides.


Teeing off

Keen golfers can try the 18 hole course at Golf Saint Thomas near Béziers, or the 27 holes at Cap d’Agde.


Face to face with dinosaurs...

The 'Musée des Dinosaures' near Mèze makes for a fun day out, an 'open air museum' which feels more like an animal sanctuary with different dinosaurs to discover in a natural setting. It is open every afternoon.


The Etang du Bagnas is a small but lovely lake nature reserve which is good for birdwatching. There are limited routes accessible on foot or by bike through the reserve, or you can stop at the viewpoint just outside of Marseillan Ville.


In and around St Guilhem le Désert

The medieval town of St Guilhem le Désert is well worth a visit for its lovely setting, its Romanesque abbey and its ruined castle. And in nearby St Jean de Fos, you can visit the Argileum (a pottery museum) and La Grotte de la Clamouse - either take a guided tour through the caves to see the superb stalacmites and stalagtites, or explore via zip lines and tightropes!
