We loved the house and we loved the surrounding countryside. The owner is very friendly and helpful. I think that the requirement to bring you own bedding, etc. might make some people reluctant to go, and it can only work if you drive, rather than fly. And maybe that limits the people who may choose this as a holiday home. Our children are grown up now and it may not be such a great place to go with children. But, for us, it was quite perfect.
The apartment was exactly as presented on the website. For the three of us, it was perfect - comfortable, clean, private, quiet, and in the center of the town. The owners were wonderfully welcoming and helpful. This is a very small town, so not many restaurants and such (altho you can always go to the boulangerie, deli, patisserie, and two local groceries). Try not to miss the Sunday market! And as long as you have a car, there are many great options within easy reach (in Viviers, Valvigneres, Tiel - also, don't miss St. Montan). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Alba. The only little drawback: there seems to be just one internet cafe in Alba, and it was closed during September.
