“Charming House in the South of France”
Reviewed December 5, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Comfortable, retro house in very good location within easy walking distance of all local shops and the great market which takes place on Sundays and Thursdays. Saint Chinian is a well placed little town within easy reach of the delights of the coast or a drive north will take you to some more interesting places in the foothills of the mountains. The owner speaks very good English and is very informative and helpful. Book and enjoy the local restaurants, good food and delicious local wine

“Lovely Acanthus”
Reviewed June 21, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We can only repeat the other reviews and add it was a wonderful stay in a great location . The welcome was as if we were old friends and Andreas gave so much helpful information on both the house and the town.

It's no wonder so many people on this site have returned many times . I was very sad to leave. If I ever return to the region Acanthus will most definately be my place to stay.
Thank you

“Excellent rental!”
Reviewed October 8, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is our second time to stay at the Acanthus Holiday Home and we again had a wonderful visit. This is a very nice property which is well maintained and very clean. The largest bathroom we have ever seen! Wonderful little town with all the services to explore the Saint Chinian wine area. Andreas and Anthony are wonderful host who will help you with anything you need and information about the area. Highly recommend and will return in the future. Patrick and Glenda Rooney

“Outstanding experience in an amazing small French village”
Reviewed June 13, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The apartment was just perfect for us, very tastefully fitted out in authentic French style, very old, very spacious, fully fitted out and everything we needed for a four week stay. Apart from being very comfortable, there was a comprehensive book, DVD and CD library for our exclusive use as well as access to many UK and French TV channels. It was just a couple of minutes walk to the main street of this charming small French village which has banks, chemists, doctors, butchers, bakeries, supermarkets and many other services you would never find in a similar sized town (2,000) in Australia. If you want a taste of French rural life at its best this apartment and this village are ideal. The owners/managers could not have been more helpful to deal with and were very knowledgeable about not just the village but the whole of the district with lots of excellent suggestions for day trips to surrounding areas.

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!
