Feedback from previous guests

Another amazing year at a beautiful house. The superb outside space and pool keeps us coming back! Plenty of room for all six of us, great value for money and somewhere we would consider for a fourth time! A family record! Thanks to Peter who has been great as usual.

The Iacovides/Goss family, Watford.




Fantastic holiday in a beautiful house – (best we have ever stayed in)! Swimming at Roquebrun so beautiful. Beach trips and fund day at water park. Thanks you for sharing! Peter (manager) is a star! Will definitely return!

The Cooper and White families, Norwich




Another warm, sunny, relaxing and joyful week has passed in our favourite house in France. 40 degrees and lots of swimming....we only regret one thing, that we only stayed for a week – that will never happen again!

Ulrika Bengston




We had a really lovely holiday, the property was excellent and we are tempted to book it again next year.

Dorigen




Brenda and I wanted to let you and the owners know that we had a wonderful stay at the house recently.
The house is very comfortable, well equipped and perfectly positioned. It is quiet but at the same time within walking distance of the village.
We have visited there twice, as you know, and would certainly consider visiting again.
Please thank everyone involved in the upkeep of the house and pass my regards to the owners.
Thank you specifically, for making us feel so welcome.

Brenda & Marios Iacovides




Of course our stay in La Cave Ancienne was marvelous - as always! Good weather, good food, cold rosé wine, lots of swimming in the pool, lots of barbecue, lunches and dinners outside, lots of walking in the vineyards, some visits to the beach, some swimming under the waterfalls in Gorge d'Héric, some visits to Pezenas and around, some visits to the market in St Chinian, lots of reading and lazy time around the pool. Regarding tennis, we played but not as much as we planned, it was too hot, which was nice as we spent more time in the pool instead!

U Bengston




We have recently returned from a week at your property in France. I wanted to let you know that we all had a wonderful time and everything completely exceeded our expectations. I can't really say more than that! Best regards.

Susie Roddis




Returned from the property last Saturday - fantastic holiday, lovely property.

Doughty family - Hertfordshire, UK




Your property is superb and we had an amazing week at your property. The village and surrounding area is stunning and the information you provide in house is informative and extremely helpful. I'm sure I speak for the whole group in saying that you have created a high quality holiday destination and one that I am sure we will frequent again.

Michael from Hertfordshire




This is the absolute perfect house for a relaxing time in a typical Languedoc village! The inside is a perfect mix between beautiful interior and lots of comfort. It's great for a relaxing time as well as for nice dinners and socializing with family and friends. The garden with the pool is just lovely for lazy days in the sun. We look forward to returning as soon as possible again!
