15 Grand Rue
Ranked #1 of 1 Caux B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 July 2017

This is a lovely 19th century house with gorgeous period rooms on a quiet street in Caux. Simon and Mandy are wonderful hosts; nothing is too much trouble. Simon booked restaurants for us and advised as to possible visits for days out. The breakfasts were lovely with fresh bread and fruit, cheese, cooked meats etc. If you are a tea drinker, Mandy has a wonderful collection of teas from Mariage Freres - one of the premiere French tea houses. (yes the French do drink tea and have tea houses that are older than some English ones and with very high quality teas)

Caux is a great base for exploring this unknown and beautiful region of France - come and stay here for as long as you can.

The House and Rooms
This is a gorgeous and sympathetically restored 19th century town house in this lovely village. All the rooms are spacious and well appointed. Room 1 is on the ground floor and because it is cooler does not have air conditioning. All the other rooms have air conditioning. Rooms 2 and 4 are on the first floor; room 2 has its own separate sitting room whilst the sitting area in room 4 is part of the single room. Simon said that he thought that the internet is better in rooms 2 and 4. We stayed in 4 and the internet connection there was fine, but I cannot comment about the WiFi reception in the other rooms. Rooms 2 and 4 have a balcony where you can sit out should you wish to. Rooms 3 and 5 are on the second floor and are also lovely rooms. Room 5 is above room 4 and is again laid out as a single room whilst room 3 is above room 2 and has a separate sitting room. Being on the second floor, these rooms enjoy a Juliet Balcony and have lovely views from their balcony windows.

Why Caux?
This is a lovely old peaceful French village set in the middle of vineyards but is 10 minutes from the A75 (which is free) 10 minutes from Pezenas (a wonderful old town with plenty of history and restaurants) and 30 minutes from lovely sandy beaches.
The mayor is working hard to do up the village and the results (not yet complete) look great. Many of the houses have been, or are being, renovated which all adds to the appearance of the village. There is a town trail marking the buildings of historic importance. Well worth spending half an hour to follow it if mediaeval villages are your thing. The roads are quiet and cycling is easy in the rolling countryside. Simon has local walks if you want that - we didn't it was too hot

Summary
We had a wonderful stay and will definitely return. Simon and Mandy are the perfect hosts - we arrived as guests and felt that we left as friends.

Room Tip: Views from second floor rooms and balconies on the first floor, garden on the ground floor. They are...

We had a great stay with Simon and Mandy who are accomplished and friendly hosts, in a beautiful old house with every modern comfort items. The area is also beautiful, with lots of scenery, fantastic local restaurants (advised by the hosts) and wineries. Very functional TV with multiple international channels. Only one suggestion: get the (free) wifi up to better speeds ...

We recently spent three nights at 15 Grand Rue, and we didn't want to leave! We felt so comfortable there! Our suite was perfect in every way. We slept well as the beds are good and the area is quiet at night. Our in-room sitting area was easy to relax in and had a great view of the garden and countryside. The bathroom is modern, with nice fixtures and sparkled with cleanliness. The house is beautifully decorated/renovated and the quality of the furnishings is very good. The weather was quite warm while we visited, so we appreciated having air conditioning in our room.

And we really enjoyed our time with Simon and Mandy, who are lovely hosts. We were delighted to become acquainted over a bottle of wine.

The breakfasts were good and had plenty of variety.

Great stay and will happily return!!! Thanks Simon and Mandy for your wonderful hospitality!

We spent last X'mas here for our family runaway trip. 15 Grand Rue is definitely a gem in Caux! A beautiful mansion, tastefully decorated with warm and friendly hosts. What else one can ask for?!

Haven't seen enough of Languedoc. Definitely will come back again!

Room Tip: Just let the hosts know what you need, they will try their best to accommodate!
