We were made to feel very welcome in this lovely flat. Meg and Neil went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. Meg's delicious meal on the first evening was wonderful and made us feel instantly at home in the area. The maps and suggestions for days out were brilliant. The flat was luxurious with plenty of hot water and other welcome facilities such as a washing machine and wi-fi. Overall the rental was very good value for money, but the friendliness and help provided by the owners was beyond price.
We were both so pleased to receive your kind review. Although the apartment offers basic accommodation at a reasonable cost, we do try to ensure that it is comfortable and meets our clients' needs. Thank you so much for your lovely review!

Meg and Neil's apartment is lovely and they are very accommodating hosts, who could not do enough for us.
The garden is beautiful and we could have spent our whole holiday relaxing in it. It was the perfect spot to end our evenings with a glass (or two) of wine.
The apartment is easily accessible for Nimes and the surrounding area particularly if you have a car. We didn't but did use the bus service from Rhodilan into Nimes.
We would definitely recommend this and will hopefully be back!
We're very pleased that you enjoyed the garden and we were happy that there was some shade when we needed it during the heatwave! It pleases us to think that you returned home happy and relaxed.

We loved it! Rodilhan is only moments away from Nimes and an hour in any direction to all sorts of stunning locations, attractions and the Mediterranean.
Meg and Neil are great hosts and very... more
Many thanks for your excellent and kind review. We have taken up your good suggestion of supplying a cool bag for guests' picnics.
Manon the cat misses you! We hope to see you again.
