It is possible to have a wonderfully peaceful holiday in the south of France even at the height of the holiday season in August! Elaine’s house is set in remote but beautiful countryside opposite the Villemagne cave amid rows of vines and rolling hills. It has the advantage of a secluded private pool set in a rambling garden with fruit trees and shrubs with views of the surrounding countryside. It’s not overlooked at all and the only sounds you hear are birds and tractors. The house itself is simple but comfortable. All the bedrooms are large so there’s no arguments about who gets the best room while no ensuites means all the bathrooms can be used by everyone. The house is very homely. It’s easy and just works. The only downside was a brief flood in the kitchen due to a heavy downpour and some dodgy drainage but it all passed quickly. All in all, a peaceful and relaxing holiday enjoyed enormously by everyone, even our grumpy teenagers.
We so enjoyed our stay of three nights at La Forge. The house is as beautiful as the photos, and it accommodated our family of four with rooms to spare. The kids enjoyed the gaming consoles, and outdoor activities.
We came to Monseret during April, and things were very quiet, as well as rainy and cold. It is usually sunny and warmish so we didn't have good timing for weather. I think we would plan to come in early to mid-May next time to find the region more vibrant, more restaurants open for the season, and the weather warmer.
Cathérine and Sébastien's parents met us at the house when we arrived and gave us a tour. They were available and in contact with us during our stay in case we needed anything - very friendly and welcoming. Thank you for opening up your charming home to travellers who want to get a taste for small town France and the castle country.
