“Unique adventure with a few drawbacks”

This caught our eye because of the unusual opportunity to stay in a "cave" house or troglodyte house, if you will. This type of dwelling is apparently traditional from older times in a number of places in France. The "cave" experience did meet and exceed our expectations; the back of the house, on two floors, is built directly into the limestone hillside. It would be a better experience in mid-summer when the coolness of the cave would be more welcome. As it was, the four days we were there in May were cooler than anticipated, so cave -dwelling was a rather chilly, damp experience. Having tiny bits of the cave flake off and create dust around and about was a new experience as well. This was the third rental (gite) we stayed in during our three-and-a-half week trip through France. We picked it mainly for the unusual experience and it's proximity to Arles and Avignon. It has a well-appointed kitchen, and sheets and towels were provided for us; in fact they were handed to us on our way in. Also a first, since these things were already in place in our previous stays. The landlord speaks no English, and between speed and dialect, this is the only place on all of our travels where we had any difficulty communicating. We came across no one here who spoke English. In fact, I left my dictionary there to ease communications for the next possible English speakers, but he made it very clear he had no use for it because very few came. I Intended it as a thoughtful gesture, so I was a little put off. Cabrieres is also a working, working class town, so it is busy with normal town noises, not quiet like a retreat. We were glad to leave after our four days, but I would recommend this place just for the unusual experience. It was probably our most authentic taste of "non-tourist" France.
