What a super cottage. Off the beaten track but such a comfortable retreat. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A word of caution in that the access road is extremely narrow at points, so be careful of the size of car you hire if travelling from the airport! We loved out stay and will definitely be back! Thank you.
We stayed as an extended family for 2 weeks in June (between 4 and 6 adults at any one time and a 20 month old baby) and had a wonderful time here.
La Romance is completed to a high specification with plenty of space indoors and outside for large groups or families to enjoy. Gilles was on-hand to resolve any issues we had and to provide additional cases of his superb wine (available in cases in the house on a 'tab' basis).
The pool is fenced in, which was a great bonus for us with a small toddler and meant that the whole downstairs was safe and accessible for them to run about and enjoy.
Each room is individually air conditioned, a must in southern France in summer and the internet was reasonably fast (enough to stream TV etc) although the WiFi signal is weak in some parts of the stone built property (which is to be expected). The house is approx. 1 km from the nearest bakery (20 minute walk/5-10 minute run or jog) and in the middle of Gilles vineyards. The degustation at Gilles' parents house is well worth doing, and 2 of our party also booked on to the wine and food pairing evening which they thoroughly enjoyed.
Avignon, Orange, the Pont du Gard and Nimes can all be reached in approx 1 hour by road, Bagnols-sur-Ceze has an SNCF train station on 'this' side of the town and a full hospital is also available in the town should any emergencies arise. The full complement of supermarkets are available in Bagnols meaning, if you don't want to, you don't have to travel far for anything.
We would highly recommend La Romance (and any property owned/run by Gilles) for families with young childre or larger groups wanting to spend a peaceful time but in easy reach or larger cities or sites for day trips.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday Gilles!
