“Outstanding experience in an amazing small French village”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The apartment was just perfect for us, very tastefully fitted out in authentic French style, very old, very spacious, fully fitted out and everything we needed for a four week stay. Apart from being very comfortable, there was a comprehensive book, DVD and CD library for our exclusive use as well as access to many UK and French TV channels. It was just a couple of minutes walk to the main street of this charming small French village which has banks, chemists, doctors, butchers, bakeries, supermarkets and many other services you would never find in a similar sized town (2,000) in Australia. If you want a taste of French rural life at its best this apartment and this village are ideal. The owners/managers could not have been more helpful to deal with and were very knowledgeable about not just the village but the whole of the district with lots of excellent suggestions for day trips to surrounding areas.

“Wonderful stay!”

We have just finished a wonderful two week stay at the Ancanthus Holiday Home. This is a delightful place that has everything one needs for a great vacation. Nice furnishings, excellent kitchen, with a great open air feeling. Master bathroom is very, very large! Saint Chinian is a place for good food, wine, and wonderful walks. Great location to explore the south west of France and the Mediterranean. The owners are a great resource for information and travel advice. You have a excellent butcher, baker, wine shop all in walking distance. The markets on Thursday and Sunday will fill in all your needs, however there are two adequate groceries nearby. We highly recommend this property and will return soon!

“Relaxing stay in charming French village”
Reviewed 2 December 2012 for a stay in October 2012

person found this review helpful

Acanthus Holiday House was a warm and comfortable home located in a picturesque French village in the heart of wine country. It offered us all of the amenities of home (such as cooking and laundry facilities as well as internet access) which made our week long stay pleasant and manageable. Local shops and restaurants were easily accessible to the home. There were numerous opportunities for outdoor activities such as biking and hiking and we took many photographs of the beautiful countryside. St. Chinian was also a good base from which to explore the surrounding area and we took day trips to the Mediterranean Sea, other scenic villages, and a large national park. Our hosts, Andreas and Anthony, were friendly and knowledgeable about the area. I would definitely recommend Acanthus for a vacation and look forward to my next visit.
