Lynda and Simon are such lovely people but are very keen for visitors to have their own space. The pool was amazing as the weather was so hot and to have the pool at your disposal is great. Cessenon-sur-orb is a beautiful village just a short walk across the bridge to the bars and restaurants. The accommodation is really comfortable and ideal for a couple. We enjoyed every minute and were made very welcome. We would love to go back one day and would highly recommend it to anybody.

Pat and Wendy were welcoming, friendly and very thoughtful. We arrived after a long journey to everything we needed for a welcome French lunch with baguette, cheese and wine! They really cared and were anxious to ensure our holiday was great...which it was. The property itself is perfectly situated as a base for exploring this fabulous region. We had fantastic trips to Montpellier, Carcassonne and Sete...all within an hour. Highlight of the trip was kayaking down the River Orb. Everything was perfect!
