This is a beautiful home that will not disappoint. I describe it as a "home" because it truly has all of the comforts of home plus a view that words cannot describe. It also feels like home because of the kindness and helpfulness of Mr. and Ms. Gardon who treated us like family. Langlade is an idea location to explore all of of the surrounding quaint villages and historic sites. We are so happy that we stayed at this amazing spot!
Sehr gute Ausgangslage für Unternehmungen (Avignon, Pont du Gard, Aigues Mortes, Nimes...) Die Wohnung war komfortabel eingerichtet, sehr schöner Blick auf das Tal aus Essbereich und Terasse.
* we stayed from 8/8/15 for a week but I can't seem to add that date - The property is accurately described, the highlight being the pool and decked area. The pool and jacuzzi were a little cold to stay in for long but served well to cool off. The pool temperature would be my only slight complaint, that and the difficulty of getting into the jacuzzi (there aren't any steps and it's a bit of a climb for the less than athletic). The decked area is very relaxing with plenty of loungers, parasols and seating. There is also a covered area housing a gas BBQ and a separate toilet and shower. The pool lights up at night and the view across the valley and of the village is fantastic. We spent most of our time around the pool.
We travelled with friends so I got to see both properties as we rented them both between us. Gite Palm was in my opinion the nicer with a couple of patio doors and a four poster bed. This sleeps 4 with the double bed in the main and only bedroom and a double settee bed (although this is not a cheap bed but sturdy and comfortable) in the lounge. The kitchen is equipped with microwave, hob, coffee machines, juicer, dish washer and washing machine. Everything but an oven but the microwave has a grill, to summarise everything that you'd need.
Gite Olive was the bottom gite and has a main bedroom and double bed, bunk beds in an atrium area and a settee bed in the lounge. It's equipped as Palm. Both have air conditioning but only a single unit it Olive having to service the whole gite.
Monsieur Gardon was very helpful before we arrived and quickly responded to any emails. Having met us he was however on holiday for the week but left help in the way of Michael.
Langlade is a lovely French village but only has the one restaurant within walking distance, this was closed during our visit as the owners were also on holiday. Others could be found within a short drive (Sommieres is nice).
All in all we had a great stay and would recommend to a friend. I think it helped that Monsieur Gardon was away as we didn't have to be conscious of the noise the kids were making in the pool, having not travelled like this before I'm not sure what I would have made of it if they were about. We met both Monsieur Gardon and his wife who were very friendly and clearly proud of the beautiful property so I think everything would have been as good had they have been there.
We stayed a week in each gite, so are able to review both and compare. Gites Palmier and Olivier each have their particular advantages, but the overall rating is a straight 5-star for both. They are attached to the main house, on the edge of the village. Olivier is at ground level while Palmier is a floor above, next to the living area of the main house. As Olivier is set forward, there is no one above and it is the quieter of the two. You can hear occasional noise from the house in Palmier. The situation up on a hillside gives great views across the plain to the Cevennes hills in the distance. As the horizon is low, you get the sun all the way through the evening- there is no dipping behind hills at teatime. The views from Olivier are good; from Palmier simply glorious. Both gites are very well equipped. Olivier’s furnishings appear newer. The standard of furnishing is high. The beds are unusually comfortable with excellent mattresses. Aircon and shower were fine. Wi-Fi, TV etc. all good. Both gites were spotless. Olivier downstairs is quieter, further from the main house, newer and a little better equipped. Palmier is lighter (the living room area has windows on three sides, two of which are full sliding patio doors) with better views. I preferred its terrace as well. The pool area is great- jacuzzi, solarium, barbecue- all well thought out and designed. The owners were charming, friendly and helpful, very promptly helping with odd problems such as us not being able to figure out how to operate the touch controls on the (very new) hob. Langlade is a pleasant village with an old centre and newer developments around the edge. You can walk around the wooded hills surrounding it. There is a boulangerie in the centre and two supermarkets about three minutes’ drive away on the edge. There’s a big new Casino supermarket, but the smaller and less impressive-looking Dia is closer, better stocked, friendlier and busier. Langlade is well placed for visiting the surrounding area. The motorway is ten minutes away on the edge of Nimes, provided you avoid peak times. We also found that by driving south out of Langlade and getting onto the D135 enabled us to drive on quieter roads. These are excellent places to stay and fully merit the 5 stars. Highly recommended.
Der Internetauftritt übertreibt nicht. Alles ist so wie versprochen. Der Pool und die Terrasse haben eine herrliche Aussicht mit fantastischen Sonnenuntergängen. Erholung pur. Tagsüber kann man viele Ausflüge machen: Chauvet-Höhle, Pont du Gard, Mittelmeer, Arles....... und danach Erholung am Pool. Urlaub wie man ihn sich vorstellt.
Wir haben mit unserer Familie (2 Erwachsene, 3 Kinder und eine Freundin) einen herrlichen Urlaub in der Gite Olivier verbracht. Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr gut ausgestatttet und bietet genügend Platz für 6 Personen (zumindest, wenn auf der Schlafcouch im Wohnzimmer Kinder schlafen, da sie nicht sehr breit ist). Sehr praktisch war es auch eine Spülmaschine und eine Waschmaschine zu haben, die wir mehrfach genutzt haben, um ein paar Badehandtücher etc. durchzuwaschen.
Die Lage der Ferienwohnung ist wunderschön auf einem Hügel mit tollem Blick ins Tal. Dies ging ja auch schon aus den Bildern im Internet hervor, wurde jedoch vom "Live Eindruck" noch übertroffen.
Langlade ist ein kleines, ruhiges Dorf und idealer Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge. So waren wir in Arles, Avignon, Orange, Pont du Gare und noch einigen anderen idyllischen Provenceörtchen. Die Vermieter haben uns sehr herzlich empfangen und uns Tips für Ausflüge etc. gegeben.
Zwischen diesen "aktiven" Tagen haben wir immer wieder ganz ruhige Tage am herrlichen Pool eingelegt. Umrahmt von Olivenbäumen und Palmen kann man den tollen Ausblick ins Tal genießen und den Zikaden lauschen.
Zum Abendessen hatten wir von unserer Terasse aus den Sonnenuntergang inklusive.
Herzlichen Dank nochmal an M. und Madame Gardon! Wir haben die Zeit in Langlade sehr genossen und werden bestimmt nochmal wiederkommen.
