We thoroughly enjoyed our week here. The hosts were helpful but discreet and gave us plenty of suggestions for walks, cycles and restaurants. Having the bike hire business at the front door was great and it was fun to try out an electric bike and dog trailer and even better when we were driven to the top of the gorge to cycle. We were really grateful to Tessa for arranging our vet appointment with a lovely vet. The site was comfy and had everything we needed, including iPod dock and Lavazza coffee machine, and the garden, complete with dogs, fish and cats, was beautiful with a good view of the Tarn where we swam and canoed, and looked for beavers. I strongly recommend the Petit Gite to anyone wanting to get away from it all yet still have an active holiday.
The house was in a very pleasant rural village on the edge of some very fine walking country above Mende. The accommodation was well equipped and fine for us two, but may be a little cramped downstairs for four. The owner appeared every day to feed his animals but was in no way obtrusive. There was an enclosed area outside for eating protected from any wind and sun.
Mende is a very pleasant and interesting town with easy parking and all necessary facilities. The country side around varied spectacularly and was in easy reach of the Tarn George, the Cevenne and many interesting towns and villages.
We would be very happy to stay there again.
