About Lionel Fonteyne

Hello! I am Lionel Fonteyne and I am a 43-year-old father of two daughters, who are 16 and 5, and a son who is 13. I have been working in construction for 25 years. The expertise from my job went into building this spacious villa. I have tried my hardest to recreate the same authenticity that the region's buildings display.

I now would like to open the doors to this oasis of peace in the hope that you will have unforgettable moments with family, and friends, here.

Lionel Fonteyne purchased this villa in 2014

Amazing Villa With Stunning Views.

  • 5 of 5

The very charming owner - Lionel, was at the house to welcome us in to the house. Wow! The photos on the website don't do this wonderful property justice. The open plan living area is enormous.

In the fridge was a bottle each of white, red and rose wine, which was a very generous welcoming gift.

All the appliances in the kitchen are top of the range and spotlessly kept as was the house in general. There was nothing we needed that wasn't in a draw or cupboard somewhere, including things like string and cellotape, which we needed for our wild bird feeder! More high-tech items included a built-in radio system, and a huge tv. Most things were operated via a remote control, including the gates to access the property and a window in the roof.

The beds were comfortable and the showers were superb.

The swimming pool is huge and situated just a few steps down from the terrace. There were plenty of tables, chairs, loungers and sun shades, so whether sitting in the sun or the shade, there was always somewhere suitable.

We visited all four nearby "Plus Beaux Villages de France", as well as other charming towns and villages including Uzes.

There are a handful of restaurants within easy walking distance and with a reasonable supermarket just a ten minute drive away, we were in no danger of going hungry.

Driving around the area is a real pleasure, with very little traffic and very scenic countryside, seemingly changing around every bend.

As keen fans of natural history, especially butterflies, we can report seeing in the garden several species, including Ilex Hairstreak, Painted Lady, Cleopatra, Southern White Admiral, and the star of the show, the Two-tailed Pasha. A short walk from the village in any direction yielded several species of Blues, Skippers and others.

To summarise, it will be very difficult for us to beat this holiday due to the beautiful villa and wonderful countryside. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this house and area to anyone considering a relaxing stay in this area.

Séjour au paradis...

  • 5 of 5

Quelle superbe maison au cœur d'un tout aussi splendide village authentique et paisible.

Quatre très belles chambres lumineuses disposant chacune de leur salle de douche

Grande terrasse donnant accès à la piscine à débordement à couper le souffle.

Vue imprenable et intimité absolue.

Cuisine hyper équipée avec toute la vaisselle et les ustensiles souhaités.

Un rêve pour tous les amateurs de nature et de quiétude.

Merci à Lionel pour sa disponibilité et ses précieux conseils.

A très bientôt,

Frédéric et Famille.

Nous avons été reçu par un hôte qui soigne ses clients, autant qu'il soigne sa villa! Nous n'avons qu'un seul regret partir de ce bel endroit!!!!

La maison est vraiment dans un cadre magnifique, avec tout l'équipement nécessaire pour passer de très belles vacances. Sans aucun doute nous serons de retour.

Merci Lionel.

Außergewöhnliches Haus mit exzellenter Ausstattung und traumhafter Lage und Weitblick

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit vier Paaren für eine Woche in diesem traumhaft gelegenen Haus. Alles war großzügig ausgestattet. Im Zentrum liegt sicherlich die großzügig angelegte Terrasse mit dem außergewöhnlichen Pool mit Blick bis zum Mont Ventoux. Alles in allem also eine perfekte Unterkunft um die Zeit in der Provence zu genießen.

It is listed as one of France's prettiest villages

Nestled at the heart of Provence Gardoise, the charming village of La Roque-sur-Cèze is rated among the prettiest villages in France. Here, there is a beautiful architectural marriage between sloping cobbled streets and honey-coloured stone houses.

The castle ruins, the Roman chapel, and the medieval bridge spanning the Cèze River are testimony to its rich past. Not far away, you can visit a listed location for a fee: Sautadet Waterfall

Must see:

- The castle (private), dating back to the 12th century, boats two small round towers guarding each side of its front portion.

- The Roman chapel (private) alongside the castle, also from the 12th century, looks out over the Cèze Valley.

- Charles Martel Bridge is a Roman Bridge and a listed historical monument.

- Sautadet Waterfall, set downstream from the bridge, has been a listed natural site since 1993. The Cèze hollows out holes and canyons, which end up meeting to form crevasses that the river the gushes into. The Marmites de Géants (literally Giants' Pots) are circular cavities carved out of the rock bed by the swirling pebbles. This can be a dangerous place.

We are close to Goudargues, nicknamed "Gardoise's little Venice".

Close to:

Uzès — 30 km away

Avignon — 40km away

Bagnols-sur-Cèze — 8 km away

Goudargues — 5 km away

The sea — 80 km away

The river — 0.1 km away

There are five restaurants in a 500m radius
