I went to Saint Marcel to get away from the intensity of London. It was recommended by a close friend and it was perfect for what I wanted. I went down with my road bicycle and was greeted with miles upon miles of open road with stunning scenery and barely a car in sight. In between cycling I walked in every direction through the fields and forest. The house was more than enough for my needs but it was very affordable which was great. Self catering is ideal and the kitchen had everything you would need at home let alone in a holiday rental.
It was spotlessly clean and warm.
