Maison des Remparts is our second home. We have filled it with
antiques, fine linens and gourmet cooking equipment. When you come to stay at
our house, we would like you to feel like our honored guests. We ourselves
have rented a number of houses and have been disappointed to find a sterile
environment with no phone, not even salt and pepper in the kitchen cabinet and
cheap furniture in the house. We provide you with a phone, asking you to
use your calling card for toll calls. We even have a place for you to hook up
your lap top computer. We have spices, olive oils, vinegars and simple basic
ingredients in the kitchen cupboards. All we ask is that you replace items
that you use up, so we or our next guests will have the same convenience.
You will find China, tablecloths, wineglasses and serving trays for laying a
pretty table. We receive compliments about the comfort of our quality European slat
beds, the fine French linens and duvets. We are continuing to make
improvements to the house, so your suggestions are welcome.
We chose a village house because we wanted to become a part of the French
village life. Rather than staying in a fancy tourist resort, become a part
of a village for a week or more. Buy your daily baguette at one of the two
bakeries, shop at the village truck market twice a week, have a drink at one of
the two cafes or dine at the Hotel D'Alibert in Caunes.
Near Caunes there are many day adventures (as described in our "Things To Do"
page) such as wine tasting, walking tours, cave visits, 1/2 day barge
tours, horseback riding, visits to historic sites, but experiencing village life
may be the most memorable.
