This was my first visit to this area of France. Having only 4 days (far too few,) I decided to stay in Esperaza as it's central to the area with a good road network to all areas of interest and yet is set far enough away from the main highway for the village to retain its charm.
What a find 'La Maison de la Riviere' was. Spotlessly clean with large well-furnished rooms (all en-suit), and endless cups of coffee (of tea) pastries and breads for breakfast. This B&B’s location just off the main square and across from the village church was ideally located with ample parking.
The owners were both very friendly and an endless mine of information about anything to do with the area.
Enjoyed every minute of my stay here and was worth every penny.
