A very relaxing week.

5 of 5
We loved the comfortable apartment and the location. We didn't use a car so appreciated the collection and drop off at the airport. Used local buses to visit St Quentin and Nimes.

Beautiful house, wonderful host and relaxing surroundings

5 of 5
We had a truly wonderful stay at Christine's beautiful home. The whole place is light, clean and spacious; we particularly enjoyed the large kitchen/living area, as well as the multiple outside balconies. The place is also decorated with their own excellent art, giving it a homely and unique feel. Christine herself was also wonderful, frequently ensuring we had all we needed, and an excellent communicator. This was perfect for a quiet, relaxing getaway and an excellent springboard to explore this beautiful part of the French countryside.
