It is in a peaceful location overlooking the river which is well used by kayakers. The nearby village of Orlagues has a good bakery and butchers and the Lidl supermarket in Lamalou les Bains was the best we found in the area. We enjoyed walking up Les Gorges d'Heric and also visited the spectacular viaduct at Millau. The outside area around the pool was perfect for relaxing and the small terrace outside the main bedroom was lovely. The kitchen was well equipped and we found we had everything we needed including a supply of towels for use by the pool. A wonderful week in a very scenic area.

A real find in a stunning location, amazing views with its own private beach! You can enjoy hanging out at the villa, going to the river on kayaks or swimming or chilling reading a book! Kids were happy exploring too. The house itself (we actually have stayed in both Le Roque and Le Piscine) are typically French in style but with all amenities and tastefully decorated - clean and comfortable, most importantly. The picturesque Roquebrum is only 10 mins away, where we found there are some great family places to eat (good pizza place), and going further say just 20 mins on you can get to Cessanon to the local french market on Saturday.
