5/5 STAR REVIEW

 

 

The house is very spacious. It was clean and well equipped, there is a large garden. Plenty of activities are provided including the pool, the bicycles, table tennis. We found lots to do in the area, we really liked the town and hope to return.
We enjoyed the walk into the town, torches were provided and very useful walking back along the unlit road in the evening. There are lots of restaurants in the town. A good sized supermarket, as well as the weekly market.

 

 

 

5/5-STAR REVIEW

 

"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. Review from Jane and Tim

Delightful comfortable house that has everything. : 5/5-STAR REVIEW

 

We had a wonderful time at this delightful house. Every comfort was thought of and provided. The views of the Aveyron Gorge were amazing, we watched as people were climbing the gorge and walking a tight rope. Something different every day. Our grandchildren 7 and 3 had great fun on the Wii which was such a thoughtful game to provide. Would highly recommend this lovely house so near to beautiful Saint Antonin Noble Val. It surpassed the house description. Truly great place.

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!
