The house was built in the early 1800s by one of Napoleon's generals who lived in the south of France. Italianate in style, with ornate balustrades, columns and carved stonework, the house has been fully renovated and is now home to Cinq & Sept.
Today, 'La Grande Maison' (as it is known in the village) forms the perfect venue for our self-catering accommodation. In our second-floor suites, the original 'Encaustic' tiles, in shades of turquoise, burgundy, olive and pink, have all been restored.
On the ground floor, our Pézenas and Neffiès suites feature exposed stonework and wooden beams, along with many other original features.
Five luxury holiday suites are available at Cinq & Sept offering fully self-catering accommodation for our guests.
All of the suites in our guesthouse comprise a bedroom, sitting room, bath or shower room, and a kitchen. Each is furnished to a very high standard with everything you might need.
For example, en-suite shower rooms feature spacious showers with large 'Raindance' heads, and luxuriously-soft 'Pima Cotton' towels.
Our kitchens have been similarly equipped to meet the demands of today's modern traveller. Each features a spacious combination oven-microwave, fridge-freezer, Nespresso coffee machine, a full range of cooking equipment and solid oak worktops. Three of our suites are equipped with dishwashers. All offer crockery, glasses and cutlery for four people - allowing you to entertain should you want.
Broadband Wi-Fi, Satellite TV, DVD, iPod radio and reversible air-con* are all included in every holiday suite. (*Except the Pézenas Suite which does not require air-con and has central heating for the cooler months.)
Such little modern necessities combine with all sorts of traditional touches - from original 'Encaustic' tiled floors to exposed wood beams and stone walls. Each suite also offers views beyond our guesthouse of the surrounding countryside.
