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

It is in a peaceful location overlooking the river which is well used by kayakers. The nearby village of Orlagues has a good bakery and butchers and the Lidl supermarket in Lamalou les Bains was the best we found in the area. We enjoyed walking up Les Gorges d'Heric and also visited the spectacular viaduct at Millau. The outside area around the pool was perfect for relaxing and the small terrace outside the main bedroom was lovely. The kitchen was well equipped and we found we had everything we needed including a supply of towels for use by the pool. A wonderful week in a very scenic area.
