We have stayed in many apartments over the years and I have to say that this one is among the best ! Our welcome included a bottle of wine and some homemade treats which were delicious. The accommodations are lovely. Such a unique setting built right into the the town's ramparts. It has been beautifully restored with the old beams and original stone exposed yet it has every modern convenience. One other thing that we really liked was that it was easy to find. As soon as you see the wall, you know you're there. After being lost many times in the past while trying to find other places we have rented, this was a welcome change ! It is also close to the A75 so getting around is easy. Claude is an incredible host. He makes you feel right at home and is available whenever you have a question. He was very helpful about things to see in the area, places to eat as well as more practical things like how to use the washing machine. There were maps and brochures available as well. We enjoyed the local restaurant in the Hotel de la Poste. If you go, try the aligot, made from mashed potatoes blended with butter, cream, crushed garlic, and the melted cheese and served with sausage. There are many interesting towns worth visiting in the area as well as the Millau Viaduct and the Roquefort caves. Our only regret is that we only stayed for 3 nights. For anyone visiting this area of France, why would you stay anywhere else ? I certainly hope that I get a chance to visit again.
Spectacular accomodation in magnificent setting
This is the best of all worlds – very modern with all the amenities you could ever need including wonderfully stocked kitchen, great beds, great access as well as spotlessly clean and beautifully maintained. Owner speaks great English so no barriers for those with limited French. The town of La Cavalerie has restaurants and bakeries and a convenient grocery store. Easy access to everything off A75. If you like history, castles, Templars, the outdoors, French bread and great hospitality you will love L'Armandine and Claude. We had an unforgettably great time !!
