Catherine's House sleeps 3

In the quiet village of Saint Saturnin (population 248), our friend Catherine's little gem of a house has just been stylishly renovated to bring it right up-to-date after being empty for several years. Built in the early eighteen hundreds and in her family for generations, now you too can have the pleasure of staying in it to explore one of the most beautiful yet least known parts of France.

The front door opens into a spacious living room with massive traditional hearth, neat little kitchen/breakfast bar with cooker and dishwasher, and winding stairs leading up to a bedroom with double bed, a small sitting room, shower room and separate WC. There is full oil-fired central heating throughout.

Sit in the small front courtyard, drink in the sights and sounds of the village (such as they are!), the trickling of the little fountain and enjoy a glass of wine. If you're walkers, St Saturnin lies on national footpath GR4 which runs from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. There is also a simple restaurant in village (for other restaurants, see
Catherine's house is available when our own houses are full. To book, or for any further information, either e-mail or phone me, or if you prefer & speak fluent French, call Catherine's husband, Jean-Pierre PLANTECOSTE, who deals with such matters, on 00334 7178 5279.

Like my own houses, it is stylish, spotlessly clean, has a patio table and chairs, sunshade and barbecue. There's lots of information in English so you get the most from your holiday. The comfy bed will be made up for your arrival (bed linen & towels are all provided). What more could you need for a relaxing holiday?

Thank you.
We've had a wonderful holiday. The house is fantastic as is the village and area around. Thank you also for the wine!

Lynne & Rob

Thank you very much for our stay in your beautiful little house. We truly enjoyed it, the fire at night, having a meal at the little table while watching life go by, indeed, very peaceful.

Josie & Ken, Australia

Our only regret is that we did not have time to visit you for an aperitif, but I don't want to leave without writing to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay in your pretty house, despite the weather! - and that we shall come back.
Pam & John
