The pictures couldn't do this place justice. Our initial arrival was one of delight as we realised how well equipped and high spec this property is. Every possible mod con and more. You'll find table football, pingpong, croquet, an amazing selection of bikes for ALL ages, games galore, hundreds of books (kids&adults - in French!) Fun pool with ample recliners/pool furniture (felt like we were the first people to use it all). Comfy beds & sofas, dishwasher, washer&dryer, coffee machines, drinks fridge and everything you'd need in the kitchen. We slept, relaxed and ate very well. We found the place so immaculate upon arrival that we felt we had to clean around when we left!
Met by the owner at arrival & departure who showed us round, explaining how the shutters, coffee machine, vacuum and everything worked. Very helpful; told us to contact her with any questions, although we didn't need to.
Situated up a hill which had its pluses (v. secluded & quiet and that VIEW) but there is not a lot within immediate walking distance. The nearest restaurant is 15-minute walk away ("Caravan-Kitchen" - cannot recommend this highly enough) and garage/supermarket about the same distance. It's a drive to any bars if that's important to you (wasn't to us!) Sainte Eulalie d'Olt has to be seen (it's a beautiful village, 5mins beyond the restaurant) and the other local town, St. Geniez, has a few shops and good variety of eateries. RESERVE before you go anywhere - every restaurant was booked up when we turned up!
We spent all our time at the wonderful house, but would have liked to stay longer to journey further around, maybe canoe at St. Eulalie, take more bike rides. Time flew so fast. Highly recommended.
Comfortable and quiet rural bungalow, well placed for the Causses and Gorges, situated in spacious pretty garden with 2 ponds and visiting red squirrels. Well-equipped kitchen, and useful conservatory for enjoying the sun in the cool autumn weather. Unspoiled countryside with easy walking. Our hosts were helpful but discreet and we had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing holiday.
