About the property

Mountain/river views, Gite id nestled into river bank-best spot in this to

Our spot is known to be the best spot in St Antonin – a paradise with spectacular views of the river Avion. Our gite is nestled into the bank of the river with a viewing decking that stretched nearly 30 meters along the bank, with further decking lower making it easy to fish off the side.

The picturesque view is yours alone as you wake in the morning to the mist just lifting from the cliffs ahead, with the river alive with nature’s best. King-fishers dancing through the trees on the island in the middle and barbel fish flashing their shimmers, teasing the happy herons hunting on the slopes of the weir –it’s just incredible.

During the day the river comes alive with happy families laughing and playing. You are high up enough to have privacy but close enough to wander to the decking edge and see the joy to behold. We have a stair and beach gate for you to join in the fun.

In the evening the river is all your again as the families leave. The beautiful sounds of flowing waters from the weir to the left, and the herbaceous aromas from the lush surroundings will stay with you forever. It is truly paradise.

The island in the middle is easily reached through shin deep waters, so great fun for families with children, but if you prefer to swim, then to the other side of the weir for you as the waters deepen.

The house itself is clean tidy and well equipped. It has one bedroom with patio windows looking onto the cliffs, but also has VERY comfortable and easy to set up sofa beds – one in the lounge and one in the dining room. It has everything you need and more, including wifi and a TV and DVD player – although the only thing to really watch is the ever-changing river. Outside we have turned the original well into a huge round BBQ……the best spot to eat in St Antonin is on your decking that is for sure ;-)

The gite is on a dead-end road so is pretty quiet but has a wonderful alfresco dining restaurant at the end which has incredible live music most nights, with a corner filled with games for children. You can’t hear the music from your gite – you can only hear the weir. It is situated right on the weir and you can see right down the river to the centre of town from this spot.

There is also a kayaking company here, which sends you serenely down the river Avion with dramatic and breath-taking scenery of the cliffs and ancient caves. Perfect for the drop off back home too as it is a 2 minute walk from the Gite.

St Antonin boasts a stunning ancient medieval town, just a three minute walk up the hill. To greet you will be a labyrinth of cobbled streets and shuttered houses - a lively, friendly, buzzing town. It has several restaurants ranging from pizza to fine dining. There are two supermarkets too, and lots of gorgeous shops to mooch around in. On a Thursday there is a fabulous night time market.

On a Sunday the town turns into an exciting, beautiful market until 2pm…people come from miles to visit it. It is also where "100 Foot Mile" and "Charlotte Grey" was filmed.

France calls St Antonin it's secret it truly is. An experience not to be missed.
