The property was perfect for our party of 2 families. It was more spacious than the pictures showed.

5 of 5
We were so nicely welcomed and given great advice about our stay. The actual property was ideal and the location was perfect. All the rooms in the property were spacious with plenty of storage with extra storage areas in the hallway and utility/fridge area. The kitchen was nicely open plan to the dining area but also had a door to the outside so easy to take food/drinks to the outside table where we ate the majority of our meals. The pool was a good size and ideal for all of the various ages in our party - also good to have had loungers for us all. We really enjoyed most evenings having a BBQ and eating/playing games round the outside table. We had some great days out kayaking in the Ardeche, taking the younger boys on the steam railway, going to the water park near Avignon and visiting towns. Bagnols sur Ceze is beautiful with a lovely Wednesday morning market. Also there were plenty of supermarkets nearby and a delicious boulangerie. We all had such a fantastic holiday and will definitely revisit and it really is a beautiful part of France.
