    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5
    Our Castel incorporates two recently converted self contained holiday rentals (gîtes), both have magnificent views and are named after the local (Griffon and Egyptian) vultures that often fly overhead. The one referred to here is the smaller Egyptian gite.

It was all we were hoping for and more. We got remote but not too remote. The bed was comfortable and the gite had everything we needed with our own terrace overlooking the valley. The garden simply had the best views. The village is quite remarkable but above all the owners are very special, nothing is too much trouble. The... more

Our stay over the Christmas/New Year period was exceedingly peaceful and relaxing.

We received a very warm and friendly welcome from the owners, who helped to get our luggage to the gîte as it is a short distance from the parking area.
