10 of us ages raging from 24 to 85 had a perfect holiday. The thick stone walls keep the house cool but you can sun yourself round the pool. We ate dinner in the shady court yard and although some of us just slumped and gazed at the horses in the paddock and the mountains behond, others explored the Cirque de Navacelles and the Gorges de la Vis. Don’t miss the Market at Ganges. The house has everything you might need plus a huge library with everything from Dickens to John le Carre.
The house is comfortable and well equipped. Pierrette made us feel very welcome. We loved the tiny hamlet and felt totally relaxed there. The sun terrace off the bedroom is private with sun loungers, where we enjoyed reading, watching the small lizards and listening to the bird song. There is absolutely no traffic noise and apart from the birds and the low hum of bees and other insects it was utterly quiet. There are many varieties of beautiful wild flowers and butterflies in the immediate area.
The wider area is interesting and the scenery is spectacular. During our six night stay we visited Nimes and the Pont du Gard, the Cirque de Navacelles, La Couvertoirade and the Viaduc de Millau. Locally we enjoyed the cascades on the River Vis and lovely walks. There are many, many more things to see and do in the area.
Ganges is a short drive away and there is a good range of shops and supermarkets there. The kitchen in the house had everything we needed for self catering. Breakfast, listening to the birds, as we sat just outside the kitchen door beneath the vine was perfect.
Our stay here was part of a much longer holiday in Southern France and Italy. We were very sorry to leave, and wished we had rented this house for longer as there were so many other things we could have seen and done. The tranquility of this holiday let made it perfect for us. Thank you, Pierrette, for our lovely stay.
