cute 1700s house in a picturesque village
We couldn't believe our eyes when we first drove into Bourdic. The tiny, medieval streets and the cute little Mairie are so picturesque. The village could be a film set. The house is full of cute quirks - the worn stone steps into the courtyard, the massive old key you use to get in, the dinky archway under the kitchen. The house is well equipped and comfortable, and it has a washing machine and dishwasher, as well as a good library of books on the region. Bring your own towels, though. The owners are lovely. They live nearby and are really helpful and friendly - they invited us round for an aperitif. There is loads to do in the region, but our favourite trips were to Uzes, the nearest town; Nimes; Arles; the Camargue; and Avignon. There are 2 bicycles in the property that you can use. I would recommend cycling (or jogging) the 5k to the boulangerie in Saint Chaptes in the mornings. It's a nice journey through vineyards. But don't worry, you don't have to: a baker visits Bourdic in a little van every morning, and honks his horn in the village square when he arrives.
