We had a wonderful time during the week we stayed in this medieval village of Padern. The stone cottage was delightful with great views - although it wouldn't suit a large family. It was completely renovated and had all modcons. The owner, Colette, who lives in the village, introduced us to village life. We walked through the mountains, dropped in on local wine producers and with the help of Colette visited some fascinating castles and monastries in the surrounding area.
Very near to other villages so was great for wining and dining.
Our week in Padern was one of the highlights of our European trip. Plus
