The perfect spot

This castle was amazing! We are from the United States and HAD the privilage of Being One of Henry's first guests at this newly renovated structure. The place is the perfect mix of modern luxury and rustic country charm. Henry Was the perfect host, attentive and reliable completely Call. The location is surronded by beautiful country side full with fruit trees and wild herbs. Perfect for a family holiday as it is peaceful and relaxing yet there is plenty to do and see in the area. The place is very tastefully designed and full with all amenities. Would absolutely recommend the place to anyone looking to vacation with a large group of people! We wish we were back in southern europe sun right now!

Rambling house in a tiny hamlet.

  • 5 of 5

Quiet sprawling house in a small hamlet. Henri was helpful and flexible with our checkin and out. The house was well appointed will all our needs for cooking and sleeping. The pool was a lovely reprieve from the heat on some sweltering days. The area was full of activities, hiking in the Cévennes, lovely small towns, Arles and Nîmes were a short drive away and the coast was an easy day trip. Our family of 5 had a wonderful stay. Thank you Henri!

Parfait pour l'occasion !

  • 5 of 5

La maison est superbe, et la partie extérieure très charmante, malgré la mitoyenneté avec les voisins, très discrets. Ideale pour les séjours entre amis et/ou famille, ce qui fut notre cas. Merci Henri pour votre accueil, ce sera un très bon souvenir à l'occasion de mes 30ans ! Salutations de Tahiti. Raphaëlle

Réveillon en famille

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passe un super réveillon en famille dans la grande maison d'Henri.

Nous étions 12 personnes (7 adultes, 5 enfants).

La maison est suffisamment grande pour que chacun ait son espace.

Elle est très agréable , et on a tout le confort.

La position de la maison était idéale pour découvrir la région.

Merci également à Henri pour sa gentillesse et son écoute.

Nous y reviendrons sûrement l'été pour profiter de la piscine.
