My partner and I loved our visit in 2012 so much we decided to return in 2013, having never before repeated a holiday. This is because Cinq & Sept (C&S) is hard to beat for a relaxing holiday. Alex, Greg and Sam are great hosts, friendly and inclusive, arranging a pool side dinner party and guest drinks during our stay for those that wish to join in and get to know fellow guests. They also respect guest privacy and understand that the time guests spend at C&S is special and should be all about relaxing and having a wonderful holiday.
We upgraded to the Pezenas suite this year and loved the space set over three levels. The kitchen diner was spacious enough for 4 adults to breakfast and dine. The lounge accommodates a sofa and two easy chairs, which was great for us as we went with friends and could sit and chat at ease. The bed and bathroom are on the upper level. The bed is large an comfortable and the large rain shower big enough for two!
The pool and gardens are delightful for long, lazy days of sun-bathing, swimming and relaxing in a friendly environment. The new pool-side loo is a great addition to the facilities. The summer kitchen and seating area is also lovely for obtaining pool-side refreshments and for getting to know fellow guests.
Roujan is still a quite village but it does offer local facilities of bakeries, a travelling pizzeria and a few restaurants. However, the town of Pezenas is a short drive away (15 minutes) and this provides plenty of shops, bars restaurants etc. There are also plenty of great tourist attractions within a 1 hour drive of C&S and the guest manual provides lots of recommendations and tips for great days out.
We stayed for 11 nights and could easily have stayed longer. C&S is a special place for a lovely relaxing holiday.
