The owner of this gite gave us an extremely warm welcome and seems to take a genuine sense of pride and pleasure in welcoming guests. We were welcomed with gifts for the kids, a selection of local produce and wine, and the owner even arranged a treasure hunt for the kids which lead us to a local shop where the kids were able to select some sweets. The gite is situated in the network of charming alleyways but you can get quite near to unload your car and then find a place to park in one of two free public car parks that are a hundred meters or so away. The gite is situated on the top floor overlooking a courtyard. There is a balcony for eating outside and you can also use the courtyard to have barbecues. There is a huge garage full of many useful things to use - loads of bikes, scooters, dress up costumes/toys for the kids, cool box, masks and inflatables etc. All towels/linen are provided including towels for swimming. It's is not luxurious, but it is a very charming, spacious, and well equipped gite which is well situated for exploring the herault region and further afield. Very close to St Guilhem and pont de diable, and the owner provided a free parking pass for the pont de diable car park which we used several times. Not a huge amount going on in Aniane, but there are a few nice restaurants and everything is much cheaper then in St Guilhem. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider booking again next time we come back to the region.
