Kevin, I am so glad to hear someone knows of it! Great feedback regarding its location for both walking into town and getting to the smaller towns. It got decent reviews on tripadvisor, and of course I know it certainly isn't going to be an ambient provencal atmosphere, but for my intents and purposes it seems good. They've got a very generous cancellation policy as well - you can cancel up until 18:00 same day with no charge. So I can easily drop in earlier in the day, take a look, and decide. Whereas all of the b&b's and small hotels I've found so far keep your deposit with less than 30 days notice. (I mean, I understand that it's their livelihood and everything, but it's a definite negative in my book). Any other opinions, I am all ears

Having had to keep to a budget on some of our long trips, it is sometimes a good idea to book a place like you've found in Apt, so you know you can stay SOME where that fits your budget. If they have a good cancellation policy, you might stumble on someplace with more character that fits your budget (and obviously doesn't advertise on the internet) which you can switch to after a couple nights. And if that doesn't happen, you can happily stay at the same "base."

We've found more inexpensive places to stay in Languedoc-Roussillon than in Provence. In fact, while it isn't really in Cathar country, you might want to see if you can snag a room in Uzes (very near Pont du Gard) for a night. We stayed at La Taverne, which is a two star (no elevator) and lovely. I'm not sure what their rates would be in season, as we paid 80euro in November 2010. BUT, if you are there, possibly on a weekday, and they have rooms available, you might negotiate a similar rate or lower as a single. It never hurts to ask!
