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.

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.

La DetenteA lovely, spacious house, well equipped and exceptionally clean. Perfect for outside dining with views of the village and surrounding forests.A beautiful peaceful location but walking distance from the village.The owners went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable.Linda
Rating: 5 OUT OF 5 STARSWe had a very relaxing two weeks at La Detente. The house is really well equipped and the pool area is great.
A short walk to the town (up and down hill, so kept us fit!), so well placed for the town.
The owners were very helpful and super friendly. All in all a great holiday.
5 stars from us tooWe very much enjoyed our stay here. The house is very conveniently located on the edge of the pretty town of Caylus, but nonetheless is in a private location and has a lovely feeling of being in the countryside. The large garden is very attractive and well maintained, with a great pool and substantial terracing, and a beautiful view of Caylus. The house5 itself is lovely - very conveniently and comfortably appointed, attractively decorated, and efficiently laid out.
We are a family of 4, and there was lots of space for all of us.
A bit of a gem !We had a wonderful time in Caylus and La Détente is a bit of a gem!
Loved the house, great position and lovely views of the village, a great pool, especially for children, and ideal outside space with the terraces, couldn’t better it really. Also like the idea that we could walk into the village, although I don’t think I’m as fit as I thought I was 😊The whole area is stunning; loved St. Antonin and thought Najac was one of the prettiest villages I’ve seen in France and what a great setting.Also Enjoyed meeting Paul and Julie, they were great fun and really looked after us. We will hopefully meet up again sometime when we’re back in that area.I/we would definitely go back to La Détente -it had everything we needed.We all had a great time and thanks for your help Jayne in sorting it all out.
..... made this holiday really quite special !We stayed at La Detente for 2 weeks in August and had such lovely holiday.The house is ideal, really well-equipped, extremely clean and in a really great location within easy walking distance to the small medieval town, but still quiet and peaceful. The garden and pool are great for relaxing and there is an amazing view of the town in the distance.Jayne was super friendly and helpful from the first contact about booking and all the way through to our arrival. We were also lucky enough to get to know the owners, Paul and Julie, while we were there, they are simply lovely and made our holiday even better!We've holidayed in this area for many years but this house, the location and the wonderful hospitality made this holiday really quite special.
