Step off the narrow street for an authentic 17th-century stone house with a sweet-smelling garden, an enclosed pool and a church as a backdrop – it’s beautiful at night when the stained-glass window is lit up, and the bells are silent.
Vivacious Mireille and charming English Stuart will happily offer suggestions on things to do in the area, including regional festivals and gastronomy. Continental breakfast is served around a long table with other guests and includes ham, cheese and special breads.
Spend lazy days with a book in the garden, next to the pool or at the table on the terrace; there’s also a cosy sitting room with a TV. Walk to the 16th-century Château de Monluc for a free tour followed by wine-tasting; go out for dinner in the village or use the summer kitchen and have a barbecue in the garden.
