We stayed in Cabardes which was very quiet and well equipped. This area of Langedoc is stunning and this an ideal location to explore all that the area has to offer.

After travelling through France for 4 days we arrived at our gite (Cabardes) for 5 nights. We were immediately welcomed by Ruth, Fergus and dog/cat, baggage carried in and immediately felt at home. This is one of the best equipped gites we have stayed in, even down to herbs and olive oil. Gardens are gorgeous and the pool lovely and...
