It had all the modern conveniences but keep the character of an old building. The kitchen was well equipped, plenty of cutlery, dishes and cooking utensils. It had an american fridge hidden behind nice wooden doors. It also had a microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. The bedrooms were pretty but there was a lack of storage space for guests. The bathroom was spacious but a hook for the shower head would have made a big difference to the showering experience. The house was extremely clean. The outside area was even nicer than the pictures.Within the village there are 3 bakery's grocery stores and a butchers. You would definitely need a car and it is close to Nimes.
