What a joy, after a tour (we are artists dancer and musician) to find this haven of peace in this natural setting. Even if sometimes the winter we sometimes feel a bit isolated, the microclimate of the place is nice and helps us through this period a little rough.

In the spring, we are very keen to cultivate the garden and like to maintain the property. It is a pleasure to offer our customers a few garden produce during their stay.

The goal is that, initially, the customers are satisfied.

ANTOINE PERVENCHON purchased this house in 1982


It is in our family home (at the time without running water or electricity), I spent much of my childhood and I cherish the memories of a wonderful holiday. I discovered and enjoyed nature.

Later, 30 years ago, we decided with my wife to move here.

We then bought a house near ours and have restored to transform it into what is now Le Gîte de la Fage.

What makes this house unique

Exceptional views surrounded by nature, close to many attractions, sunshine and calm weather.

Perfect place to relax and gaze at the view.

  • 5 of 5

We spent four days mid-September at Antoine's gite in Cezas and loved it. Although it is quite small, the space is very well planned and clean, and had everything we needed, and the view from the terrace and garden is quite incredible. There are good walks locally and the hamlet itself has character. Highly recommended.

Traumurlaub in den Cevennen

  • 5 of 5

Wir suchten einen Urlaub mit viel Ruhe, aber auch vielen tollen Ausflugszielen und haben dies bei Antoine und Sylvie in Cezas, in diesem romantischen kleinen Bergdörfchen am Fuße der Cevennen, gefunden.

Das Haus war sehr sauber und komfortabel, die Gastgeber sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir genossen die wunderbare Aussicht auf die Cevennen.

Die vielen tollen Urlaubsziele in der Umgebung konnten wir gut erreichen. Gebadet haben wir in der Nähe von Ganges im kalten klaren Flüßchen Vis.

Vielen Dank für alles. Dieses Urlaubsziel ist sehr zu empfehlen.

Nous avons eu beaucoup de plaisir dans ce magnifique chalet. Le logement est éloigné et proche de la nature. Ici vous trouverez la paix. Antoine est une personne très amicale et agréable. Nous le remercions beaucoup. Nous reviendrons.

Wunderschöner Ort in fantastischer Natur!

  • 4 of 5

Mann kam vom Ferienhaus weg mehrere Wanderungen beginnen! Der Vermieter ist sehr nett und bestimmt auch hilfsbereit (wenn nötig)! Wer die Cevennen liebt ist hier richtig! Wer mit 4-6 Personen anreisen möchte, sollte den Vermieter vorher ansprechen das genügend Koch- und Essgeschirr vorhanden ist!
