What Past Guests Are Saying
Reading, United Kingdom
Fabulous holiday apartment in rural French village
Who: young professional couple 25 & 27
What: Get away from it all summer holiday/romantic break
When: July 2012
We loved: the charming rustic feel (exposed beams and stonework, tapestries, rugs and antique furniture), the comfy bed, the well-stocked kitchen cupboards (including wine!), the quiet location, the ease of getting around.
We lacked: a garden, some more information for tourists, phone/internet. And Caux itself is a bit dead at night. You definitely need a car.
We'd reccommend in the area: the incredible underground 'grotte des demoiselles', unlimited vine-tasting the herault, languedoc-roussillon and chateauneuf de pape, the towns of Carcasonne, Avignon and arles, abundant swimming in lakes and rivers (especially under the Pont du Diable in Olargues, countryside picnics, the local markets at Sete and Narbonne
