La Violette is one of two gites adjoining each other, with the owner's house nearby. The gite has thick walls and small windows and has been nicely renovated by the owner. It is comfortable and well-equipped, everything you need is there. On arrival the fridge appeared to be filled with more food than we could consume in a week, never seen that before. John and Joanne are extremely hospitable and John is an excellent cook. The spot is perfect: Millau, Rodez, Lodève, and other interesting places can be reached in an hour. And Aveyron is beautiful, unspoilt and undiscovered yet by tourists. We very much enjoyed our stay.
Our family (four of us including two 6 and 8 year old girls) stayed in Cardabelle for 2 weeks. We had a super time which was due to the well appointed accommodation; interaction with Joanne and Jon and the setting/places to visit.
The gite provides everything a family could require and unlike many we’ve stayed was well equipped with a comfortable sofa and excellent oven/dishwasher/washing machine etc. An added bonus is the fact that the windows are fitted throughout with insect mesh so we were able to sleep with the windows open without fear of being eaten alive! If we did have any questions on anything Jon and Joanne were available and more than willing to discuss with us whether it be gite related or advice on days out.
The views from the gite are absolutely breathtaking. The pool, which is exceptionally well maintained by Jon, is one of the best places to enjoy this view. The area of Aveyron is one that we weren’t familiar with but there were plenty of places to visit and entertain young children. The hilly terrain does mean that it can take a while to drive around; if you aren’t one for twisty roads/hairpin bends then think twice!
All in all a fab stay – thank you both Joanne and Jon!
