Location, location, location! What a fantastic place to stay, right in the heart of this fascinating, historic, but surprisingly uncrowded little city. The flat is down narrow cobbled streets, with little traffic, amongst ancient buildings and with a view of the cathedral exactly as the photo shows. There are lots of great restaurants nearby and the food in the market looked good - though we ate out almost all the time - and much else of interest in the town. The bus and train stations are within walking distance so ideal for somebody without a car.
The flat itself is up one flight of creaky ancient stairs, but once inside is up-to-date with modern appointments. There were just the two of us, and we found it very comfortable, though perhaps not so good for more people unless the others are kids (there were only two comfy chairs and three upright chairs in the main room, though there is also a small spare room with a sofa(bed?)). We used the spare room as a dressing room, since there is not much hanging space, nor indeed space to dress yourself, in the main bedroom - the double bed was very comfortable. Cooking facilities, crockery, etc are a bit limited.
The heating in the shower room - and the shower itself - worked well; we didn't need to use the heating elsewhere but there seemed to be plenty of heaters around. Good wi-fi.
We'd be happy to go back and will recommend it to friends.
The gite is located along a quiet lane. The views from the front of the gite are beautiful and stretch across the surrounding countryside. Lovely terraces for meals and evening drinks. Large pool. Vines protect you from the sun for morning breakfast. Bliss. Located for convenient sight seeing to cities and historic villages. Alain available for information and recommendations within the area. Local markets are a must. We would recommend as value for money comfortable the quietness and spacious property. Merci Alain notre séjour dans votre Gite. Tres bon.
