This is really a magnificent place to stay. It's charming, very clean, quiet, and bautiful. The private garden is amazing. You have everything you need in the private kitchen. The hosts are really kind and the pay attention to every detail. I felt at home. Thank you very much Hanne and Jean-François! I will return for sure some day :)
Une annonce qui tient ses promesses!
Accueil super chaleureux de Hanne et Jean-Francois... La chambre a beaucoup de charme (lit ultra confortable.), donnant sur un superbe petit jardin, bien entretenu, nickel pour la sieste, la lecture et les apéros... Saint Chinian & alentours, aàdécouvrir absolument !
Staying in Saint Chinian in Hanne & Jean-Francois house was perfect, everything corresponded exactly with their pictures and description. My husband and I were staying in the nice apartment with the kitchenette and bathroom, we had opportunity to use the beautiful garden too. Hanne & Jean-Francois gave us every information, they were offering us advice about trips around. They respected our privacy. The entrance to the apartment over the garage was an advantage for us, we were separated from their apartment. We enjoyed the stay very much. I highly recommend this accommodation. Marie
La chambre correspond parfaitement à la description. Hanne et Jean François sont très sympas, nous sommes allés manger moule/frites avec eux sur la place du village. Leur chambre est un endroit calme et paisible avec kitchenette et beau petit jardin donnant sur la rivière. La literie est bonne et un joli petit bouquet de fleurs ornait la table de la chambre. Connexion wii-fi Ok.
Bref, une bonne expérience et donc une adresse à recommander.
This stay was a great deal. Our room was big enough for the two of us, and included a little kitchenette. There's a lot of little towns and a couple of cities in a 30 minute radius, and we travelled to the beach everyday. The area is very safe and very rural, which we liked. Our hosts were friendly and approachable, and were very respectful of our space.
Unglaublich nett und sympathisch, es hat uns wirklich sehr gut dort gefallen! Ein Zimmer mit viel Charm und Blick auf einen wunderschönen Garten. Wir wurden mit einer guten Flasche Wein empfangen und Jean-Francois teilte sogar sein frisches Baquette und Kaffee mit uns. Obwohl es eher regnerische gewesen ist, hatten wir eine sehr schöne Zeit und freuen uns schon auf das nächste Mal.
Very nice and open-minded, we enjoyed being there! A charming room with a splendid view in the garden. We were welcomed with a good bottle of wine and Jean-Francois even shared fresh bread and coffee with us. Thanks a lot! The weather was not that good, but we had wonderful time anyway and are already looking forward for our next stay.
We've stayed with Hanne and Jean-Francois for 4 nights during our trip to the region end of October. We enjoyed their comfortable and nicely decorated room which had everything we need. The cherry on the cake was the view to the garden with a river running next to it. The room is situated quite on the ground floor and is not directly connected to the main living space. So it provides as well a lot of privacy.
About the Host, Hanne & Jean-Francois
We are a Danish/French couple who, after 30 years in Denmark, have chosen to settle in the South of France. Before that, we travelled a great deal and lived in a.o. Marocco, England, France, Kenya, Comore Islands (in the Indian Ocean) - and crossed Africa from East to West in a 2CV.
Now retired we have decided to settle down quietly in the village St. Chinian in Lanquedoc, but so many interesting things to do and see that 'quiet' rarely arises: walking in beautiful landscapes, tennis, choir, painting, cultural associations etc.
We also travel a little, preferabely to Spain and Italy and dream of a trip to St. Petersburg. We like good food and wine and love opera, which is scarce around here ...
