Finding the property wasn't difficult and we were warmly greeted. The property was perfect, the view is something you will rarely find anyway, such a special location. The property was very clean and, spacious (2 adults and 4 children under 12). Plenty of walks, road cycling or MTB riding available from the property and within an hours drive Pont d"arc, Caverne du Pont d'Arc (cavernedupontdarc.fr) l'Aven d'Orgnac (orgnac.com) plus many other things. Would defiantly stay again - thank you!

House is situated very comfortably between two villages. Everything you need you can have within couple of minutes to drive nearby. Also in good position whether you want to drive south towards Nimes or Avignon or move upwards to Lyon not to mention that nearby is very beautiful nature fully packed with mountains and rivers. But special compliments goes to the owners!!! Alan and Jane were absolutely amazing and they deserve the full credit. No matter what the clock was 7 in the morning or 10 in the evening I always got my answers. With very warm regards from Estonia!
