The accommodation is spacious and full of character and you really feel you are 'living' France. The apartment has every facility you could ask for and the terrace with its view of les arenes (the Roman amphitheatre) is amazing - a sun-trap with a great view. To add to this, it is a very short walk from the railway station and only a few steps to the town centre. A boulangerie for your daily baguette is literally on the doorstep. To cap it all, the owner, Christelle, is most charming, welcoming, helpful and kind. Our heart-felt thanks, Christelle. WE RECOMMEND THIS 1000% Michael and Philip Enscot, UK
