Montpeyroux is a beautifully revived medieval hilltop village and the Pittmans’ house, full of quirks, brocante and family warmth, has a bowl-over view. Sun floods the taupe-cosy bedroom; your sitting room lies cool and restful in the vaulted former wine store. Helen happily shares her knowledge of her adopted region with you over breakfast here or on the terrace; Kevin works in town and is here in the evenings. Charming and relaxed, they love life here. You have a little terrace and private entrance. The village has excellent eateries, from crêpes to creative gourmet. Do stay, there’s masses to see and do.
