This was my second trip to Maison Candide and it was just as special as the first time I was there. Pat and Mel's home is charming, comfortable, and tastefully decorated with unique touches throughout. I enjoyed my time cooking (love the kitchen!), taking walks through the vineyards surrounding the village (this time of year the leaves are just starting to fill out the vines and the bursts of green cover the Herault Valley), and even this early in the season it was warm enough to laze in the sun on the patio (the weather was great!).
I love this property and location because it's easy to be active and venture out (winery visits, Lac de Salagou was a great hike leaving from Cirque de Moureze, farm stands, a city fix in Montpellier) and is equally and sometimes even more satisfying to just stay put. The house feels like it's set up for and afternoon of reading on the comfy couch or on the patio and your feet in the pool (with a chilled rosé or lemonade, bien sur!).
Pat and Mel were available throughout the booking process and it is clear they work hard to ensure their guests have everything they need for an easy and carefree stay. They always respond quickly.
Their recommendation to check out the flower market in Beziers (Friday mornings) was smashing and they also pointed me in the direction of the super-local Barrage des Olivettes where we took a quick swim (super refreshing). I will definitely recommend them to friends visiting the south of France and look forward myself to another visit to see Maison in another season. Merci and thank you!!
