Thank you ....La Detente is a spacious, well-equipped house perfect for couples/families who want a quiet escape. it is has everything you are likely to need . The views from the front of the villa and the terrace are lovely - it was a real delight to sit there in the evening and watch the sun set over Caylus. or to have breakfast outside and watch the sun rise onto the town. The pool is wonderful - a good size for proper swimming. The table-tennis was a lovely addition. Although the house is big it feels homely. Everything was clean and tidy on arrival and Jayne was so helpful with the booking process. Arrival/check-in was straightforward. If you are looking for a holiday where you don't need a car for everyday things, then the location of La Detente is excellent. Caylus has everything you need in walking distance, although there are some steep hills. The small shop in town, along with a wonderful boulangerie/patisserie, has everyday bits and pieces. There are bars, cafes and a Saturday/Tuesday morning market. There is a small supermarket at the opposite end of town which stocks everything you'd need for a week's holiday. All of these are 10 - 15 minutes walk at an 'average' walking speed.Thank you for letting us stay at La Detente.

A wonderful stayWe stayed here for 2 weeks in July and had a fantastic time. There were 4 adults and 2 young children. The house is very spacious, comfortable and has everything you need. It was very hot so the partial air conditioning and fans were very welcome! The pool was used a lot and is a good size. Caylus is lovely. The local Boulanger provides excellent bread, croissants etc and the brasserie on the corner has a friendly atmosphere. This is a lovely area of France with lots to see and do.

Our fourth time here ! ...Our fourth time here and it never ceases to thrill us with its lovely views of Caylus and the warm welcome we get from the locals. We were only here for a week this time but the weather was amazing. The pool was like getting into a warm bath - the temperature never dropped below 32C in the day so we didn’t do much except swim and read. Although we did manage to get in a few games of table tennis as well.
It was good to note a number of improvements since last year. The new hob and oven in the kitchen were excellent. Most welcome was the new cover for the pool. This should keep the water warmer in September, when we are hoping to come next year.
