Another wonderful visit to St Sauveur.

5 of 5
We stayed here again this summer having enjoyed it so much last year. 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.

Fabulous property, beautiful location

5 of 5
I am reticent to say how good this place is as it means more people will be competing to book a stay there. 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.

A little piece of paradise

5 of 5
We had such a wonderful time at La Serre. The gite is beautiful in every way and the facilities are excellent. We particularly loved the day beds by the pool and the stunning views over the valley. Imme and her family are so welcoming too! If I could suggest any possible improvement it would be ceiling fans in the bedrooms which got a bit hot for us at night. Thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise with us! Elli & family
