The area is perfect for day trips, exploring, outdoor activities, Lake Salagou is close by, the regional park is not too far away and for the history buff, the area is rich with history dating back 1,000 years to the Huguenots and Cathars. There are several UNESCO world heritage sites nearby including Carcassonne, Pont du Gard and Coliseum. There are also interesting Roman ruins and caves for the explorers and adventure seekers.

The nearby town of Pezenas is more populated, with many fine restauants and cafes and cinema. Pezenas has many antique stores. Pezenas was also once home to the famous French playright, Moliere. Only 1/2 hr from the scenic mediterreanan coast and only 20 min from the beautiful Cap D'Agde resort and about 40 min to Montpellier and Sete.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: We are American owners living in the bay area; married with 3 sons in college. We love to travel and meet new people. We love to cook and enjoy the french cusine and let's not forget the delicious wine and cheese! The two of us are currently learning to speak French and we are members of Alliance Francaise in the Silicon Valley. The house fits into our future retirement plans allowing us the opportunity for more travel in neighboring countries.

Why Caux, France:
Our house is located between Montpellier and Beziers in the Languedoc region. This area is becoming a popular and more affordable vacation destination with all it has to offer. The location is perfect for fun day trips or to navigate to other popular destinations within France or Europe. The TGV and good roads make it easy to travel and get around. This particular property has charm and old world character, and to us, is truely a gem. We are delighted to share Bijou de Soleil with you.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quaint and historic Caux is an authentic french village where mainly French is spoken. The heart of the village is close by within steps to the (not one, but 2) boulangeries, which have some of the best croissants in the whole south of France! There is a patiserrie, butcher, green grocer and Pizza parlor, bar and cafe and more. There are several wineries and tasting rooms to sample the lovely wines of the region. Outside the village you are close enough to get to the bustling Pezenas, Beziers or Montpellier.
