Interaction with Guests
We are in the house full time. We can be contacted any reasonable time and are happy to answer questions and share our knowledge of the area and its attractions.
Saint Chinian is a great location to explore this rich and diverse area - a national park on our doorstep with mountains and trekking. Pretty villages clinging to mountain sides, or miles of tranquil canal side walks along the Midi. History around every corner and food and wine in abundance. Inspiration for writers, painters, photographers jumps up at you or miles of beach without the crowds for those who want to soak up the sun - and all over if you fancy!
There's a limited public bus service; a car would be beneficial, though France is a major biking country - motor and pedal. Plenty of trains from Narbonne to the rest of France and Spain
Pets by arrangement; not really suitable for young children and immobile adults - no wheelchair access.
Excellent accueil. Idéal ce petit coin douillet entre Cévennes et Méditerranée. James et Maggie sont adorables, des vrais gens à l'écoute et toujours prêts à rendre service pour rendre le séjour agréable. On est parti avec l'envie de revenir !

It was my first airbnb experience as a guest. And this experience was just incredible!

Great hosts, great apartment and location. Apartment excellently stocked with everything you would need. Parking good. In all a most enjoyable stay with added bonuses of enjoying reading one of James published books and the terrific Paella shared by Maggie and James one night.
James and Maggie are delightful people. Maggie speaks fluent French and both are extremely kind and helpful. They give plenty of advise on places to visit and things to do in the region, and the apartment is just as beautiful and tidy as the pictures suggest. The view from the bedrooms is also wonderful.
We would pay another visit to this place without any hesitation at all and will definitely recommend this to our friends and family. The location and region are also splendid.
Thanks James and Maggie for these unforgettable holidays.
