    It was sort of like visiting your "good grandmother's" house where you just know that you are welcomed with open arms and that there is no need to tip toe around being ultra-careful of everything. Camont didn't have the feel of a rental property,just a comfy old home of a friend in which to feel completely relaxed. We felt no need or desire to do anything or go anywhere as we preferred to sit in a sunny spot in the garden and read, or to potter around the huge kitchen preparing snacks or take a deep relaxing bath in the middle of the afternoon just because we could.

    What a wonderful property in Southwest France. My husband and I spent our 20th anniversary there for a long weekend and had a very memorable experience. The property consists of a farmhouse and several gardens on the banks of the canal. There was a boules (petanque) court where we enjoyed playing games at sunset.

    Our family's time at Camont was magical -- and everyone's favorite part of a two week trip to France. We had fallen in love with web pictures of the house and grounds, but it was more even more idyllic than we had envisioned. Our daughters (ages 8 and 11) loved their room, the great kitchen, biking along the canal, catching frogs in the pond and visiting with co-owner Kate Hill, who invited them to pick lavender and veggies in her organic garden and then taught them how to make fantastic zucchini pancakes. My husband and I loved the antique tub in the master bedroom, the morning songs of the birds, etc..We had a warm, fun-loving hostess with great stories and plenty of privacy with the house all to ourselves. We're not typically gushy, but Camont was extraordinary.
