Stayed May 2019
We were very satisfied with the house. Everyone had the necessary privacy and space. The area was very beautiful. St.-Chinian is a cozy town with a nice market twice a week where you could get everything. We also had a nice meal there.
Stayed Sept 2018
Everything was arranged quickly despite our real last minute reservation 1 day in advance. The house was wonderfully clean and received with a nice chilled bottle of rosé. We enjoyed it and are happy to come back.
