Gay holiday accommodation south of France | Cinq & Sept

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I park?

There is parking on the street just outside Cinq & Sept’s front entrance. And there is also a large free car park just 1 minute walk from the house. Your car will be safe left in either location.

Can I swim and sunbathe naked?

Yes. We are in a village, and our garden and pool are overlooked by only two neighbours, a gay man from Paris and a retired artist from San Francisco. As a result, we always feel very comfortable being naked by the pool ourselves. Of course, you don't have to be naked, and some guests choose not to be. It's entirely up to you.

How often are suites cleaned and linen changed?

We are not a hotel as such - so we do not clean your suite and change the linen every day. We offer a free suite clean and new linen every 3-4 days. You can, however, request an extra clean and new linen. This costs €30 for new linen and towels, and €50 for a full suite clean plus new linen and towels.

Do you provide internet access?

Yes. Free broadband WIFI internet access is provided in all our suites, and is also available in the garden and by the pool.

Do you serve breakfast?

We no longer serve breakfast, as all suites now have their own kitchens and guests usually prefer to have complete freedom as to what and when they eat.

Are there any nude / gay beaches nearby?

Plenty. Cap d’Agde is 25 minutes from us, and is Europe’s largest naturist centre. It has a large naturist beach that has a gay section. Les Aresquiers is 40 minutes away - and is very popular with the Montpellier gay crowd. Serignan, to the south, is another nice beach popular with gays. And Espiguette, past Montpellier, is a superb beach with a big gay section. All gay beaches are also nude.

Should I hire a car?

Yes. Most of the great things to see and do near us require a car to get to. It will also make getting to and from airports / train stations much easier and cheaper.

Are there any shops in the village?

Yes. Roujan is the biggest village in the area, and has a big 'Super U' supermarket, a small corner shop, a pharmacy, an ATM machine, a café, 3 restaurants, 2 bakeries, a butcher, 2 pizza outlets, a florist, 2 newsagents and a doctor and dentist.

Do you allow dogs or other pets at Cinq & Sept?

Yes, dogs are welcome. But please let us know at the time of booking. Our Garden Suites are best-suited to dogs. You will be responsible for clearing up any mess your dog makes in our garden. There is a €10 per dog per night charge.

Is there a pharmacy nearby?

Yes. There is a large pharmacy in our village - about 10 minutes’ walk from Cinq & Sept.

Is there a bank nearby?

The nearest banks are in Pézenas, 12 minutes drive away. There is an ATM machine 50m from Cinq & Sept, so you can withdraw cash at any time.

Do you have bikes?

Yes. We have 2 mountain bikes that we can lend to you for free.

Do you serve food?

Yes. We host a regular Monday night dinner for guests by the pool (if there are enough people) - it is 3 courses cooked by a local chef.

Do you serve drinks?

We serve drinks from our pool bar on most afternoons. There are also plenty of wines and soft drinks available in the summer kitchen - based on an 'honesty bar' system. We also host a party every Wednesday evening.

We ask that you check in any time after 4pm, and check out any time before 11am. However, these times are negotiable, depending on other bookings. Please just ask if you’d like to check in before 4pm or check out after 11am. You can also leave bags with us should you need to.

Can I extend my stay?

Possibly - depending on other bookings. There may well be no one booked in your suite after you, or possibly another suite may be free.

Do you have pillows for people with allergies?

Yes. Our pillows are duck-feather, but we can provide you with anti-allergy pillows should you need them.

Can we have a barbecue?

You can borrow the BBQ that is in the garden. You will have to buy your own charcoal and food. You can use the crockery, glasses and BBQ implements that are in the summer kitchen.

Are suites air-conditioned / heated?

All of our suites have reversible air-con, so are air-conditioned in summer and heated in winter.

Are there clothes washing facilities?
