"The perfect summer escape"

We were looking for a week of sun, fun things to do, and relative peace and quiet and we got all in abundance here. Le Petit Chambon is perfectly situated with gorgeous views of the valley (perfect for sunsets) and easy (car) access to a number of nearby towns and cities that offer day trips: canoeing, plenty of beautiful chateaux, wine tasting, walks and ornate gardens were all favourites. The owners Paul and Gina treated us like old friends but gave us plenty of space to enjoy the swimming pool and gardens. The cottage itself was immaculate and full of books, games and DVDs to keep us entertained. There was even a loaf of freshly baked bread on our arrival (as well as a surprisingly stocked fridge, Paul and Gina thought of everything). We could not recommend this more, and honestly struggle to give any constructive criticism. It was spot on!
