Spacious and peaceful

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!

We had a fabulous time staying at Les Cerisiers. It had everything we needed and more. The pool was lovely, the setting gorgeous and it is a pleasant short walk along the river to the village with it's great pubs, restaurants and shops. An excellent place to stay and people were very friendly and helpful before during and after our stay. We'll be back!

"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. 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!
