“Wonderful stay!”

We have just finished a wonderful two week stay at the Ancanthus Holiday Home. This is a delightful place that has everything one needs for a great vacation. Nice furnishings, excellent kitchen, with a great open air feeling. Master bathroom is very, very large! Saint Chinian is a place for good food, wine, and wonderful walks. Great location to explore the south west of France and the Mediterranean. The owners are a great resource for information and travel advice. You have a excellent butcher, baker, wine shop all in walking distance. The markets on Thursday and Sunday will fill in all your needs, however there are two adequate groceries nearby. We highly recommend this property and will return soon!

“Relaxing stay in charming French village”
Reviewed December 2, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

person found this review helpful

Acanthus Holiday House was a warm and comfortable home located in a picturesque French village in the heart of wine country. It offered us all of the amenities of home (such as cooking and laundry facilities as well as internet access) which made our week long stay pleasant and manageable. Local shops and restaurants were easily accessible to the home. There were numerous opportunities for outdoor activities such as biking and hiking and we took many photographs of the beautiful countryside. St. Chinian was also a good base from which to explore the surrounding area and we took day trips to the Mediterranean Sea, other scenic villages, and a large national park. Our hosts, Andreas and Anthony, were friendly and knowledgeable about the area. I would definitely recommend Acanthus for a vacation and look forward to my next visit.

“Acanthus ia a beautiful holliday home located in the fascinating region of Languedoc.”

We love the Languedoc region of France and have stayed at several hollidays homes. Our favorite by far has been Acanthus located in the small village of St. Chinnian. Acanthus is convienently located near the center of the village and all of the shops. Best of all it is near the outdoor market. Acanthus has two airy bedrooms, a very large modern bathroom, a wonderful old fashioned kitchen (with a pantry) and a very large living room-dinning room. It is beautifully furnished and the living room has large windows on two sides and is always sunny and pleasant. The owner is very easy to contact, willing to answer questions and is always helpful. He has contributed a great deal to our positive experience in Languedoc.
