My wife and I stayed at La Jouanade for two weeks at the end of August 2018. We've stayed in many gites around the South of France and this is by far the best.
The location is superb. Plenty of beautiful towns to explore within a short drive. A small town with a bakery and shop within a few minutes and plenty of amazing countryside walks. More than enough to keep you entertained for 2 weeks (or more if you're lucky). You need a car, but the roads are dead quiet. Driving is a breeze.
The accommodation is simply beautiful. The gardens are well kept with incredible views of the countryside. The pool area is immaculate. The chalet itself has everything you need for cooking and relaxing.
The best thing about our stay was the peaceful vibe. Which feels organic, but credit must go to the owners for the part they play. You feel instantly at peace. Dom and Fay were welcoming, we always felt looked after, however they respected our privacy and for the most part we felt like we were deep in the French countryside on our own. They have a beautiful dog Millie, who is amazingly well behaved. So if you're not a dog person, fear not, she won't affect your stay. However, if you like animals - she is the best holiday companion you could hope for (second to my wife - obviously). Add the chickens to the mix and you've got a sensational set up for a world class holiday. Don't hesitate - book it.
