A few years ago I inherited of this family house and I wished to dedicate a part to fit out a holiday cottage. The vacationers whom I received were all happy to spend a few days or a few weeks in my nice cottage. They liked the peace of that place and the geographical situation of this village to visit this magnificent region.
I did not live all the year in this house and I do not meet all the travellers but if they come during my absences, a friend-neighbour who has the real estate agency
"Via Domitia" of the village will welcome you with a lot of kindness and skills.
During my journeys I also like going to holiday cottages or guest houses to be as closely as possible to the inhabitants and have a reception more personal and warm than in hotel.

Il y a quelques années j’ai hérité de cette maison de famille et j’ai désiré en consacrer une partie pour y aménager un gîte.
Les vacanciers que j’ai reçus ont tous été heureux des quelques jours ou semaines passés et ont bien profité du calme du mas et de la situation géographique de ce village pour visiter cette superbe région.
Je ne vis pas toute l’année dans cette maison et ne rencontre donc pas toujours les voyageurs mais s’ils s’annoncent lors de mes absences, une amie-voisine qui a l’agence immobilière "Via Domitia" du village vous accueillera avec beaucoup de gentillesse et de compétences.
Lors de mes voyages j’aime aussi aller dans des gîtes ou chambres d’hôtes pour être au plus près des habitants et avoir un accueil plus personnel et chaleureux qu’en hôtel.
