I think the above says it all. If you're into faceless, corporate life then look elsewhere. The proprietor Claire is the kind of person who just goes out of her way to make things wonderful. The apartment was clean, cosey and full of character whilst the area itself was a revelation. We live in Formigueres which is in the middle of a national park so we thought we knew beauty, but honestly Cucugnan and the surrounding area is something else. High imposing cliffs, magical gorges and vineyards. What made staying with Claire particularly special is how she included us into all the local French events. Things that we simply wouldn't have known about if we'd turned up to a rental apartment been given the keys and rules and been left to it. So many Soirees with her friends, local wine tasting events with fantastic food and more culture and music than you could shake a stick at. Moments that left you thinking - this is a movie right? I'm in a stella artois advert! When you book a holiday at this apartment what you're actually doing is booking a slice into French country life, and isn't that what we all want to do when we go to the South of France for a couple of weeks?

My husband and I spent a fortnight at Claire's, with ten three hour french lessons. We stayed in her accommodation which was clean, very comfortable and more than adequate. We found Claire to be inspiring, friendly and approachable, able to put us both at ease. The lessons were supplemented by information on the culture and history of the French, together with an introduction to some french music and some delicious biscuits and cakes! Claire succeeded, where so many have failed before, in getting my husband to speak in sentences!

The surrounding area is magnificent, and each day we thought the scenery just couldn't get any better, and yet it did!

Thank you Claire for a very enjoyable and informative fortnight. We hope to return.

We have just returned from a really productive and rewarding week of french language study. We are British and live in France but despite trying all the usual methods such as CD's, group lessons etc our french has not markedly improved. Claire Campbell proved to be a first rate teacher whose experience and clear joy of her subject shone through. The course was really enjoyable and including reading, writing, translation and speech and even an appreciation of french music. Plus Cucugnan itself is a lovely village with good restaurants and plenty to occupy the visitor with close access to the cathar castles. If you need to improve your french, you won't be disappointed.

I had 3 two-hour French lessons in my four day stay with Claire in the beautiful, sleepy village of Cucugnan after an excellent recommendation by a friend. I am a cyclist who loves France, its culture and especially the high mountains of the Pyrenees. I am determined to persevere and overcome the usual difficulties and frustrations despite starting to learn a second language later in adult life. Like everyone else I feel very self conscious in a group environment and was also equally apprehensive about a one to one learning situation but Claire put me at ease. At no stage did I feel silly, self conscious or stupid and much preferred this than a classroom or group situation. Feeling comfortable after my first lesson which was also fun I looked forward to the remaining two I had with Claire and I certainly would want to book them again on a future visit to the area.

Her B&B is homely and comfortable with wifi and located in a beautiful area of France with a vide variety of things to do, from visiting medieval fortresses, swimming holes, wineries and dramatic gorges to the usual good local restaurants and boulangeries.So for anyone wanting to mix a holiday in a fantastic area with learning French with a bit of French culture and history thrown in which enhances the whole learning process then Claire Campbell is perfect for you.Claire of course, throws in great advice on nice things to do whilst you are in the area.

A lovely setting, a lovely village,.an absolutely lovely hostess and teacher. The perfect vacation experience if you are looking for quaint villages, beautiful scenery, amazing Cathar castles to explore, excellent hiking, food, wine...and the opportunity to learn the French language. Accommodation has everything you need including a well equiped kitchen. Apartment is on the top level of owners home, so no private entrance. This presented no problem to me, and felt very private. Great access ro village, trails, and an hour to the Med. You may rent without the French instruction, but Claire is a wonderful teacher and gives you so much more than language lessons...a little music, literature, highly recommend her services. Perfect for one to two people. I will be back!
