Make a holiday rental villa or accommodation in Saint-Chinian, France your home away from home

Saint-Chinian is a beautifully tranquil place to take a holiday, with tree lined streets hiding market stalls in the shade and many beautiful little villas and cottages to stay in.

The owners have clearly put a lot of work into the garden as its just beautiful. We spent much of our time (when not out sightseeing) out in the garden, even better there's a BBQ which is certainly a nice thing to have. You'll find a local bakery just a few minutes walk which is perfect for the morning croissants, but make sure you get there early before they sell out. Thanks for a lovely week and also for the lovely bottle of local wine that was waiting upon arrival

It's centrally located in Olonzac with a range of restaurants within easy reach - or get a pizza to eat on the roof top terrace. Good wifi and UK tv. You can park outside. All good

We hired a car and Sally, the owner provided us with bikes which got well used. Sally, could not have been more friendly and helpful. I celebrated my 50th birthday there and could not have spent it in a better place. The views from the gite were amazing, the surrounding area was lovely, great Lakes for swimming in and the gite itself was perfect plus we had fabulous weather. I could not fault our time there in any way and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for some time out!
