It is the perfect location to relax but there are many charming places to visit nearby. The beautifully maintained pool and gardens are one of the highlights of the location. I doubt it will be our last visit.

This is a beautiful place to stay in every respect. Very friendly and helpful owners, lovely little accommodation with everything you are ever likely to need, a wonderful garden and the best pool I have used at any of the places we have stayed before. The accommodation is small but that is in no way a problem as it has so much provided - easy to use kitchen, comofortable little bedroom, air-conditioning, excellent shower and a delightful little terrace right outside the door. Ample car parking available in the garden. The village is very small and has few amenities but does have a fantastic bakery right opposite. Other shops, supermarket etc are a few mins drive away in Barjac or further afield to VAllon or Ruoms or St Ambroix. A truly relaxing, peaceful place to stay surrounded by some of the most wonderful countryside in France.
