La Châtaigne French country cottages South France - our verdict

If you enjoy walking, cycling or just being surrounded by nature, then these beautiful French country cottages to rent on the edge of the Black Mountains in South France are simply the perfect spot. The views over the mountains are breathtaking and you will never tire of grabbing a morning coffee on the terrace and just gazing out. Guests should remember that La Châtaigne cottage is quite remote (10 mins drive to the nearest village), but I think that this is part of the attraction. You can just lose yourself entirely in rural France. Highly recommended.
