Excellent place for excursions

  • 5 of 5

The house is really nice and modern. Excellent situated on a natural area, where you have possibility of using the small boats or go swimming. The nature is wild and we had some super nights on the terrace listening to the sounds from the lake and the fields. The owner was extremely helpful and easy to understand, even though he did not speak English and we did not speak French :o)

All in all too short our visit of only 1 week. We didn't use much of the facilities in the house, as we were out all day. The boats were a little out of shape, but if we had more time I am sure we would have enjoyed going for a small trip in the lake. The house was very comfortable, but could have been cleaner when we arrived. It didn't bother us though, as we spent most of the time outside. And actually we missed some hammocks, sun loungers or similar outside, to take a little nap in the evening.

I can highly recommend this place for the family who wishes to be in the center of Languedoc area and explore all the that it has to offer, and at the same time stay in a remote and natural surrounding.

Tourist attractions nearby:

We went to the Grottes de Clamouse which has beautiful. And the same day swimming close to the Pont de Diable in the town of Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert. Very nice for the kids as it has many places with shadows and an excellent place to bring a picnic basket. Though a little rough as it does not have sand but pebbles. Larger beautiful cities we can recomend Beziers with the Canal du Midi and the Cathedral. But especially Narbonne, which was so beautiful and interesting. Go before 12:00 to see Les Halles (market place) in action and eat lunch in one of the little shops inside. There is so much life and atmosphere.

We also went swimming in the natural pools of Heric Gorge - a long and calm waterfall, which has plenty of small pools to go swimming - excellent with kids. You have to walk 10-20 min, but can hike via the asfalted road up to 2 hours to get to the top. We just went app 30 min and found a super pool to cool down in and went back. Remember water and a snack :o)

Correct mais sans plus

  • 3 of 5

Nous avons profité de ce séjour car le gîte est bien situé par rapport aux principaux sites bien qu'il manque totalement de cachet! Ne pas être regardant sur la propreté qui laisse vraiment à désirer... Le contact avec la propriétaire est peu chaleureux.

Owner's Response: Je vous remercie pour commentaire et je me permet d'y répondre : - Concernant le cachet de la villa, je suis très étonnée de vos dires, vous pouvez lire les appréciations précédentes je site : * "Maison confortable, conforme à la description", * "Gite conforme à la description .Accueil chaleureux des propriétaires", *"La maison, récente, est très agréable, bien aménagée (ce qui correspond d'ailleurs au descriptif donné par les propriétaires)." Je ne pense pas vous avoir vendu autre chose que ce qui est présenté sur Abritel. - Concernant la propreté, entre chaque location : * les sanitaires, les wc, la cuisine et le frigo sont nettoyés et désinfectés. * les alèses sont changées et désinfection des literies aux huiles essentielles. *les nettoyages des sols intérieurs et extérieurs sont vérifiés et refaits si nécessaire . * la poussière est reprise Lors de nos échanges dont je garde pour ma part un souvenir courtois, que ce soit à l'arrivée ou au moment du départ, à aucun moment vous m'avez fait part d'aucun problème de propreté et c'est fort dommage, car j’essaye d'être à l'écoute et ouverte aux éventuelles remarques qui sont généralement constructives ! - j' en viens au troisième point, qui est a mon avis est la source de ce commentaire !!! quelque peu désobligeant : Vous m'avez appelé peu de temps avant votre arrivée, pour m'informer de votre heure d'arrivée le vendredi soir aux alentours de minuit !!! Je vous ai répondu que les heures d'arrivée étaient entre 15 heures et 20 heures ( plus ou moins une heure en fonction du trafic en période estivale). Et vous vous êtes braquée... je suis habituellement d'un naturel chaleureux, j'aime l’accueil et le contact avec les vacanciers qui séjournent au Domaine des Dourmettes, mais il est vrai quand je me trouve face à des personnes qui veulent imposer leur heure d'arrivée , qui ont un ton sec et peu courtois effectivement dans ces moments là je peux paraître un peu moins chaleureuse . Bien à vous Nathalie

Gignac, un gite à recommander

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé le weekend de Pâques (3 jours) dans le gite Émeraude.

Accueil chaleureux de Nathalie,

Une belle villa en bord de l'Hérault dans un beau domaine. Jardin clôturé, toutes les commodités de plein pied. Belle terrasse couverte pour farniente au milieu de la nature.

Le gite est joliment décoré et très bien équipé, rien ne manque.

Nous gardons un très bon souvenir de notre séjour et recommandons ce gîte à tous ceux qui veulent passer un agréable séjour dans une belle région à découvrir.

Merci Robert et Nathalie, au plaisir de vous revoir.

Merci pour cette vacance

  • 5 of 5

We are germans and our french is not that good, so we will write our recommandation in english: We are a family with three daughters and it is not that easy to find a house/flat in a nice area with three bedrooms.

We were warmly welcomed by Natalie although we arrived a bit too early. This part of france is so wonderful and the house we rented for our holiday made it very easy to relax and feel independend. It is a very calm place to stay at. Especially the lake directly nearby was perfect for us all and our children (17yr/16yr/12yr) loved it. There is also river about 3min to go which is also perfect for swimming because the water flows very slow .

Due to a review on another website we were aware of a gravel pit nearby and that it would not disturb in any matters. (lorries/noise/dust) I really want to emphasize that we did not hear any noise or experienced anything disturbing. So when you pass along the first time, have this in mind and forget about it. The house is luckily good to reach from the motorway within less than ten minutes which makes it easy to plan other trips to other destinations. The motorway it not noticeable! (We have been on holiday in the Louire area before and had to drive smaller roads for about 50 minutes before we reached a motorway.)

The region itself offers a big variety of activities. We took our bikes to france(MTB and normal ones) and enjoyed it a lot. The mediterranien sea is not far away and worth a couple of visits.

The house itself is new with an air conditioning. The kitchen is completely eqipped and all kind of shops and supermarkets are good to reach within a couple of minutes. The market in Gignac is very lovely. Just ask Natalie or Robert if you need any recommandation of what to do/visit. Thank you for your franc and kind assistance if needed.

So if you plan to spend your holiday in this region we recommend this place. Thank you for the lovely time we stayed in your house. Hope to see you again
