Bouzigues is a very special, peaceful village on the oyster growing Etang de Thau. This traditional fisherman's house has been beautifully restored and has spectacular views across the lagoon from its large terrace.
Our 18th century fisherman's house in the heart of the old village is the perfect place to experience traditional France or for a gourmet getaway. The house has loads of character and we've done our best to keep the house's layers of history. This is a lovingly restored family home, comfortable but with steep stone stairs leading to a wonderful terrace with views over the oyster beds and the lagoon.
The ground floor retains the traditional Cave where boats were kept but has been converted into a huge kitchen /dining room with a handmade teak kitchen and exposed stone walls. The twin bedroom and adjoining sitting room are on the 1st floor. The sitting room has a balcony looking onto the quiet street in the heart of the old village. There is a wood burning stove in the traditional tiled fireplace. The sofa bed in this room is a double. The master bedroom & bathroom are on the 2nd floor. The master bedroom has a double bed and a day bed where a child could also sleep. A balcony looks out over the lagoon. Finally the large roof terrace with 270 degree has spectacular views of the lagoon and hills and a sunny terrace room with kitchenette. Dawns, sunsets and the summer fireworks are unbeatable from here.
The stairs are very steep and made of stone and run directly up the side of the house. Safety features include a child's gate at the top and a door on the first floor but please contact me if you have concerns about its suitability for small children or those with mobility issues.
Guests will have access to the whole house.
A French, English and Swedish speaking friend manages the lets and is available to assist guests with any questions they might have. She can be visited in her shop which is just a few metres from the house.
Guests are expected to leave the house clean as they found it. Two hours of cleaning is included in the price but if cleaning is required above this, it is charged at 12E /hr. Please note, in order to facilitate swift handover between guests we ask that the used bedlinen is washed. If this is not possible because of the time of departure or the number in your group then we charge 15E/load of washing to be deducted from your deposit. Of course, you're welcome to bring your own sheets to avoid this!
Smoking is permitted on the balconies or terrace but please use an ashtray!
Please protect the teak kitchen work surfaces and don't chop directly onto them or leave them wet.
