About the property

Relax or visit the local sites from this nature hideaway with all home comforts

This lovely comfortable property consists of a large separate double bedroom, modern private lounge with TV and DVD's, kitchen and good sized bathroom. There is a washing machine in the bathroom. Both the bedroom and the lounge have air conditioning. This is the only rented property of the house and you will have full access to the large private gardens, which are more like a small park almost in the Unesco National Park. The swimming pool is large 12.5 x 6.5 m and 3m at the deep end. When you use the pool and the seating area / terrace around it you will have sole and access and be the only people using it . This is a place which is ideal for nature lovers who want a quiet and peaceful holiday with all modern comforts. A great place for walking, you can walk straight out the door and discover the donkey paths, in the mountain; or go biking and sightseeing, or just relax by the pool and watch the abundant nature. From this location you can by car easily get within the day to the best of the places worth visiting in the region, There are plenty of things to see locally but if you want a day trip to the beach this is possible too. You will be pleased to return however because here you will find peace, see the milky way and stars at night and hear the cicadas during the day, as well as spot a great deal of wildlife. There is a huge variety of flowers, insects, African birds, wild boar, deer, foxes, even wolves and lynx are back in the area . Also available for your use (at no extra charge) are bicycles, mini bowls and table tennis. Locally you will also find a wide selection of good restaurants ,which serve home made food and local wines at good prices. Despite the fact of being in nature and a very peaceful place only 5 mins away is a large town which has a full range of shops and services where you will find all you need. New note : the Cevennes Park here is now in the world wide Dark Sky Parks list , which confirms the unique nights skys we enjoy

About Robin

We are a 59 year old couple, I am English and my wife is French . We like lots of types of music, art, film , walking , swimming and all things in nature. We like to meet people from around the world. Happy if I am free to take you out on some local walks / and discuss where the best things to visit are whilst we have a drink together.

Robin purchased this house in 2006

Why Robin chose Gagnières

We fell in love with the house when we saw exactly the location and the setting . It is so calm here and private with almost no noise. Nature is untouched and we are surrounded by it, animals birds, insects, trees and flowers. The night sky is amazing , sometimes we just lie down on the warm stone driveway at night and watch it and the shooting stars ( especially in August ) It is extremely relaxing. However there is a lot to see and do locally and the shops and other facilities ( doctor dentist ) are only 5 mins away in the car. Plenty of days trips are available too as we are in the centre of a variety of popular locations.

What makes this house unique

The location combined with the nature / peace and high level of privacy and comfort.

We know the owners well. No stone is left un-turned in ensuring guests have a fantastic time. We stayed at the property previously and rented the whole villa. Only having the GITE part didn't change the experience. The area is stunning. Zero traffic, fantastic walks, villages, rivers and gorges. Hardly anyone speaks English so you feel properly on holiday. The GITE, pool and grounds are exceptionally large and tranquil. I'd happily stay all year! There isn't anything that could be changed to improve it. Perfect in every way.

Absolutely wonderful. Comfortable accommodation, extensive and beautiful gardens to relax in total peace, excellent pool, walks in stunning scenery from the front door, and so much to explore in the area. A real welcome that made us completely at home. Very highly recommended.

Très bien

  • 5 of 5

Dès notre arrivée nous avons été accueillis par nos hôtes qui étaient aux petits oignons pour que notre séjour se passe au mieux, et nous ont fourni de très bonnes suggestions randos, restau, baignade, shopping.. ils connaissent la région par cœur et sont de bon conseil.

Le logement est très joliment décoré et bien équipé, la salle de bains est spacieuse, il ne manque rien pour s'y sentir bien et y passer un séjour au calme très agréable. Le jardin et la piscine sont magnifiques, nous avons apprécié le silence environnant et la nature. Le gite correspond parfaitement à la description.

superbes vacances

  • 4 of 5

Des propriétaires totalement géniaux et qui plus est très sympathiques qui font de ce séjour une totale réussite, l'endroit est très calme si ce n'est les cigales qui n'ont que faire des vacanciers, la piscine magnifique et pour les amoureux des animaux il y a Le chien Hugo.

La région est magnifique et pour les motards il y a des randonnées à foisons, que ce soit en Ardèche, dans le Gard ou en Lozère.

Encore merci pour ce séjour.

wunderschöner Ort für Erholung und Entspannung

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten eine wundervolle Woche bei Chantal, Robin und Hugo.

Sie waren hervorragende Gastgeber und gestalteten uns den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich. Gerne gaben sie uns Tipps für Erkundungen in der Umgebung, zeigten uns besonders schöne Badestellen und luden uns sogar zum Essen ein.

Vielen Dank nochmal für alles!!!

Das Anwesen ist sehr groß und sicher umzäunt. Viele schattige Plätzchen und besonders der schöne Pool luden zum Nichtstun und Entspannen ein. Wir genossen besonders die schönen Abende mit dem atemberaubenden Sternenhimmel und den zahlreichen Sternschnuppen.

Das Ferienhaus ist sehr sauber, geschmackvoll und liebevoll eingerichtet. Bei Anreise erwartete uns ein wunderschöner Blumenstrauß auf dem Tisch und erfreute uns die ganze Woche.

Es ist großzügig ausgestattet, mit allem, was man so braucht. Besonders schön war, dass z.B. in der Küche und im Bad einige Basisdinge vorhanden waren (Gewürze, Öl, Tüten, Reiniger, Toilettenpapier, Seife...).Das Haus ist klimatisiert, was wir natürlich bei den hohen Temperaturen sehr genossen haben.

Die Landschaft ist wunderschön und bietet viele Möglichkeiten für Erkundungen.. Besonders für Motorradfahrer ein Traum.

Leider verging die Woche viel zu schnell, so dass wir uns schon jetzt auf unseren nächsten Aufenthalt bei Chantal, Robin und Hugo freuen.

Car: recommended

There is an almost endless supply of things to do in this nature rich region and national park. A huge amount of spectacular walks, some of which are around 1000 years old and known as the donkey route as celebrated by the famous Robert Louis Stephenson in his book "Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes". There are many different excellent markets to visit, depending on the time of year there are also famous Antique markets nearby. If you come in Summer you will have a chance to enjoy the great selection of entertainment , ranging from Jazz, Pop , Classical festivals. An almost unlimited supply of tiny villages to visit , some with traditional family cafes and restaurants, where you can still get a three course homes cooked meal for 13 Euro with wine. You can make day trips to the old walled city of Avignon and see all the spectacles there , including the fabulous Popes Palace, on the way also visit the spectacular Pont Du Gard. A little further on , but still possible in a day is a visit to one of the longest and least touched beaches, like the Plage de l'Espiguette, Le Grau du Roi.
