While we enjoyed our week in the cottage we felt the owner's description was a little misleading. Apart from two small windows with net curtains there were no views of the lovely countryside and the small courtyard, enclosed in high stone walls, had very little sun. (This might be welcome in high summer).
Access is really quite challenging, down a very uneven, stony path, and luggage had to be carried/wheeled 200 yds.
The nearest restaurant, in Altier, was 5km away but very good. The town of Villefort for all shopping (even bread) was at least 8km.
The cottage was comfortable for two of us, clean, and well appointed, but we think it would be very cramped for the advertised five.
The house is quite remote. There is a farm very close by with hunting dogs in cages. They howl quite a lot. The owners maintain a vegetable garden at the property, and drop in at random times to tend it. This might not suit everybody. There are fabulous walks along very quiet roads. Guests can take their dogs. Everyone is very friendly. There were some mild misunderstandings concerning linen and bedding. It is not clear what has to be taken by the guests and what is provided. We were probably the first English people to use this property, and language difficulties can occur.
Compared to many other summer rentals I have experienced, this was quite basic. Cupboards were full of the owners' possessions and we never knew what we were permitted to use. There is no bath and no wifi. Phone signals are sporadic.
