Plenty of space for us (two adults, three big kids) to be together as a family or separate if space needed. Pool was absolutely fabulous (thank you Olivier) and sitting outside between the house and the pool of an evening was a treat. Boys loved the swing under the big old fig tree. Area is very pretty, all medieval Cathar villages and vineyards. Supermarkets etc all nearby, baker who delivers to the house each day. Wifi not particularly great (on border of 2g/3g) but otherwise cannot fault the place. Our best French holiday (and we've been doing them for nearly a decade now). (PS Thank you for the extra fans, Suzanne, worked a treat). Tony, Michelle and Boys

The village is quiet but has the essentials, baker (lovely bread), wine cellars and beautiful walks. Just a few minutes away is the lively and pretty village of St Chinian with a bustling market a couple of times a week and all the shops you need. The hosts were extremely welcoming and made sure everything needed was available. The house was spotlessly clean and cool inside. And the terrace was adorable, perfect for sunbathing and a glass of wine at the end of the day. Highly recommended.

Simply but adequately furnished and with absolutely everything you could possibly need. Cotton sheets on a comfy bed, wonderfully natural outdoor sitting space with lovely views , comfortable recliners as well as table and chairs. Total peace and it was tempting to just stay put and soak it all up! Sally was always on hand for help and advice about places to visit, but never intrusive. This is a wonderful part of France, beautiful medieval villages, many lovely river swimming spots and the Gorge d'Heric which offered a great walk as well as river swimming. We visited the higher mountains and swam in a lake that wasn't far from villages with a real Alpine feel.. We need to return to explore this area in more depth, there was no time to visit the vineyards but we did enjoy shopping in several of the nearby markets. All in all a perfect break. Thank you Sally, you have created a little haven with Earthsky!
