Interaction with guests
You will be met personally on your arrival at the village. I will show you where to park your car (you have free parking for the duration of your stay) and give you the keys to your holiday home. I am very flexible about arrival times but please do let me know your travel plans well in advance. I can provide a shopping service for you and stock your fridge. Want cold champagne? You got it! Want French cheese and baguettes? No problem! You really can't miss your English breakfast? Haha, I know just where to buy it! Just send a message at least 3 days before your arrival with your shopping list. If you need a crib, I can have one ready for you. Just let me know if you have any special requests and I will be happy to help.

About the neighborhood
St. Guilhem le Désert is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is one of the Plus Beaux Villages de France ('The most beautiful villages of France”). This mystical medieval village, built in the 8th & 9th century, is situated at the end of the narrow Valley of Gellone, where it meets the steep sided gorge of the Hérault River. Vineyard and olive trees are planted in terraces on the slopes. The stunning Abbey of Gellone, founded in 804 by William of Gellone, is the centre-piece of the village and where William was buried in 812. Still a working abbey, the Abbey of Gellone hosts many musical and choral evenings during the Summer months. The village lies on the St. James's Way pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostella. To pay tribute to Saint James,
