We had a lovely time at Les Cerisiers, and especially with the unexpected bonus of the superb weather in mid-September. The house is spacious with great facilities and an enormous secluded garden. The salt pool and solar shower are just wonderful and the view from the garden is amazing. It was great to come back to this area and see more of Saint Antonin, get to the Sunday market, check out a couple more restaurants and visit the other beautiful towns/villages along the gorges, especially Penne and Bruniquel. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend the location and Les Cerisiers.

 

 GUEST RATING : 5 STARS

 

 

We had a wonderful week at Les Cerisiers. The accommodation was superbly located a short distance from St Antonin Noble Val - a pleasant walk along a quiet lane by the river to get into town. The views from the terraces, living room, kitchen and main bedrooms, as well as the pool, were stunning. The pool was wonderful, especially as it was heated for our stay (first week in September). The villa was well-equipped with everything you are likely to need for your holiday, and it was lovely to have pool towels provided (saved taking home damp towels). The villa was clean and modern, light and airy. We did not use the air-conditioning as although the day time temperature was high 20s and low 30s, the evenings were chilly with spectacular clear skies (the stars were amazing to look at above the cliffs as there was little light pollution). We particularly enjoyed watching birds in the garden, especially in the evenings when some would dive down to drink from the pool. I would say that for tall guests the beds may be a little on the small side, and this was certainly something we were aware of, but it would not stop us booking to stay here again as the views and location really are special.

We spent a very enjoyable week at Les Cerisiers this August. We particularly enjoyed and spent much time in the large garden, which has a lovely pool and an extremely attractive view to some stunning chalk cliffs in the near distance. The inside of the house is very comfortable, light, open and airy. The house is very well-equipped, and has efficient air-conditioning in the bedrooms, which worked brilliantly in what was a particularly hot August. It is in a peaceful location, which is convenient for the centre of St Antonin (perhaps a couple of minutes' drive) and other attractions in the immediate area.

Our fourth stay here (already booked for next year) and it just gets better and better. This year due to the pandemic we were not sure if we were able to have our holiday. Thankfully it did go ahead and we had the hottest weather for nearly three solid weeks thank heaven for the air conditioning a huge bonus with this fantastic property.   It feels like we are home when we come back to Les Cerisiers such a comfortable spacious house with amazing views. The garden is beautiful and we love the pool and patio area all with new comfortable furniture this year. Jayne and her team really look after us and we would not hesitate to recommend this fabulous house for a wonderful relaxed holiday. It has everything.

This was our second time at Les Cerisiers and again we had a wonderful two weeks here. The house had everything we needed and the pool offered much welcomed relief from the very hot weather we experienced. The location is fantastic being just a 20 minute stroll into St Antonin along the river. The garden is secluded and peaceful and the gorge is an amazing backdrop. Jayne was incredibly helpful and we really enjoyed meeting her. We will be back!

 

 

Dear Jayne,

It was good to meet you last week when you popped round to visit us during our week at Les Cerisiers.

We had a lovely week and a wonderfully relaxing time.  Very well equipped villa and the location, just a beautiful 20 minute walk from St Antonin was excellent.

Thank you

 

"After a walking holiday we were looking for a relaxing retreat. Les Cerisiers was a perfect choice. The house is spacious, very well appointed, comfortable and easy to use. The pool is delightful and the large garden offered us lots of shade on hot days to relax on the plentiful sun loungers. The views from the garden up to the Aveyron Gorge are beautiful. Pottering into St Antonin along the river road was charming and the old medieval town is lovely. The Sunday market is full of good things. It's a great place to stay and we would recommend it very highly.  We also found Jayne from French Country Houses extremely helpful and efficient.


 

Comfort, style and stunning views!   :  5/5-STAR REVIEW

 

The gorge provides a breath-taking backdrop to a very comfortable, stylish home. The place is so well kitted out all you need to pack is your clothes & with a supermarket 5 minutes up the road, it makes for a very low maintenance stay! The garden is stunning and we spent lovely evenings poolside watching the sunset over the gorge, enjoying a local glass of wine and BBQing. The walk into Anton de Noble is a pleasant 20-30 minute stroll along the river & with bikes provided you can always jump on those for a faster trip. So many picturesque views along the way! We will definitely be returning and can not recommend it highly enough. Enjoy!
