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

The bustling little village of Saint-Chinian in the Herault department of Languedoc, France, dates back from the 8th Century when a large monastery was founded in the idyllic location on which the village now stands. 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.

Spacious, comfortable, spotlessly clean and set in fantastic gardens, surrounded by beautiful countryside. Due to the timing of our visit - mid September - the majority of the flowers had sadly lost their colour but it didn't take much imagination to see how colourful the garden would be in full bloom. The surrounding area is great, with plenty of interesting things to see and places to explore. The ancient town of Minerve is literally minutes away and Carcassonne is only an hour's drive. Languedoc is one of the best wine regions in the world and the wine in the immediate area is especially good. You can buy a bottle for less than £5 that would easily cost twice this amount in the UK. I would recommend hiring bicycles and exploring the local area that way, as the roads are quiet and there are plenty of recognised routes, such as the Canal du Midi. Jeff and Corrine are very attentive and helpful. They are very welcoming and take genuine pride in their villa, providing everything you need for a comfortable stay. If you're a couple or a family looking for a quiet, secluded and comfortable place to stay in one of the most beautiful and picturesque areas of France, Vie Lavande is the perfect choice.

Rustic is the word Sally uses, and rustic it is. Pretty remote at the end of a valley and up a steep unpaved path, you need to be reasonably able bodied to get up to this stone built hideaway. But when you do, the views down the valley are stunning and the peaceful silence truly healing. All necessary services worked well for us - water (even after a dry summer , it was still flowing from the spring that serves the property), shower, cooker, fridge freezer (vital in the heat), internet. No TV, which was a real bonus! Sally took a load of washing away for us and it came back crisp and ready to wear. It's in a wonderful area, of course with lots to do and see if you do want to venture afield, from lovey old towns and villages to activities such as walking and canoeing. Sally was a helpful hostess and her two companions, who always seemed to turn up at mealtimes, added to our pleasure. Thanks, Sally, for a lovely time.

This naturel And confortable place is really gorgeous and peaceful ! The place is ideal for families who enjoy quiet place. We enjoyed the view, barbecues on the terrasse, looking at the stars at night, swimming... We recommand this little paradise autist friandl'y !
