What a delightful time we spent in Claire's appartment in Cucugnan! It is clean, well equipped and very comfortable with a small garden where we sat sipping local wine each evening. Nothing was too much trouble for Claire (She lives above.) and she was not only very welcoming (offering us glasses of her favourite wines accompanied by delicious snacks and home-made savoury tart) but provided us with a 'starter-pack' of basic food essentials. She was also an endless source of local knowledge and useful information. The village, which hugs a hill, with a windmill on top, has a choice of three restaurants and a couple of bars that offer a range of delicious food; a grocery store/post office; a bakery (producing artisanal bread), a few small pottery/craft studios; several little souvenir shops, a winery and a honey producer. There is everything you need on site so sorties to bigger towns are not necessary to buy supplies and gifts. We came home laden with local wine,and honey, colourful bowls and home-made soap. The surrounding countryside is magnificent with stunning views from the village. We walked for miles every day; swam in the cool, clear rivers and did our cultural bit when we visited Queribus and Peyrepertuse Chateaux perched on the top of rocky outcrops nearby. There are weekly markets on different days in surrounding towns and 'vide grenier' events, too. In fact, there was so much to do, that we ended up reading a lot less than usual! To top everything, the weather was superb. We wanted for nothing and we highly recommend both the place and the appartment for a blissful break. Thank you Claire for looking after us so well.
We were met and made very welcome by Mme Somoza. The house was lovely, exactly as described in the profile - very comfortable and relaxing. The pool too was lovely, especially in the heat - we were there when the heatwave was at its peak! Although the village was tiny, it was well served by cafes and auberges. The castles (one to the front, one behind) were lit at night, which was magical with a rising full moon. Would definitely recommend this villa!
