I misunderstood Le Claux de la Bastide. Looking at the old web site I had thought this was a B and B, it is not. The house is beautiful and the location terrific but it is not suitable for a solo traveller, unless you like staying in a huge house all by yourself. When I made the booking I wasn't told it was no longer a B and B and that there was no one actually living in the house. I arrived for four nights, I was handed the keys and the caretaker then left. It is an enormous house and I felt quite "odd" being the only person in it. I decided to leave the next morning as I felt very uncomfortable being by myself.
It is ideal for a family or a group of friends, the kitchen is well equipped, except I couldn't find a fridge!
I notice the web site has been updated and it is now clearer it is a gite. Just don't go as a solo traveller.
