Authentic House in Best Village in area
Had a great holiday in Roqubrun in June. It was a perfect French experience away from tourists. The house is newly refurbished in a lovely old part of the medieval village with great views of the river from the terrace and from the bedroom windows. The kitchen is well equipped. The new showers are lovely and the bedrooms comfortable and simple, we chose a room where we could lie in bed a look at the view.
Roquebrun is the best village in the area with great restaurants, cafes and a shop. Everyone was extremely friendly.
The canoeing on the river is excellent and there is a safe area to swim in the river in Roquebrun.
We especially enjoyed the excellent walks in the Haut-Languedoc only 20 - 30 mins away and being able to speak French without people replying in English! Quiet, peaceful and beautiful. …
Rural retreat to die for with breathtaking views
Our holiday at Earthsky was truly magical. A perfect location to experience the rustic French countryside, we found the cottage to be exceptionally peaceful and inspiring.
The local scenery is breathtaking, and the view from the terrace along the wooded valley is stunning. We loved being able to eat and relax outside and couldn't get enough of the view.
We are keen walkers and cyclists and loved exploring the local area. There are many footpaths and the quiet roads are ideal for bikes (if you’re willing to tackle a few hills!) Sally went out of her way to provide us with bikes and maps of the local area.
The cottage is comfy and equipped with everything you need. Don’t expect a featureless modern finish, the 300 year old cottage is homely and rustic, and testament to Sally’s great taste and hard work. We spent most of our time outside on the terrace, but the living room was definitely a highlight with its flagstone floor and woodburning stove, perfect for relaxing after the sun went down. There is an abundance of space, although whilst the cottage would comfortably sleep four, the open plan layout would require you to be good friends.
Sally was a welcoming and knowledgeable host. We appreciated having her next door, and enjoyed a few bottles of wine together. However, she was always respectful of our privacy.
In summary this is the perfect destination for those wanting a rural retreat and to get a real taste of peaceful French village life. …
La Vieille Grange
We are 6 friends and have spent a summer holiday week together for the last few years in villas in Europe. We were all of the opinion that this villa would take a lot of beating. It is an old house with modern equipment, cooker, American fridge/freezer etc. it has a fantastic garden with lovely swimming pool and areas of sun and shade all through the day. The interior is comfortable and has many thoughtful little touches that make a holiday special and is how we imagined a French villa to be. Roquebrun itself is a small village that has everything we needed, plenty of vineyards, a yummy bakery, 3 or 4 restaurants and bars and a small general shop. All in all it was near perfection. …
