We had a lovely time at your fabulous gite in August. The pool was great , really large and a welcome relief from the heat. Having spent many years staying in gites throughout France this has to be one of our favourites. We loved the wild garden and the outdoor space.
Inside was well equipped and all the rooms were comfortable. The area is fantastic, with plenty to see and do if you are so inclined, but equally we were happy to just lounge by the pool and soak up the sun.
I would definitely recommend this gite to anyone .We have already booked to stay again!
We have stayed in a number of properties in France and this has to be one of the best. The house and gardens were as good, if not better, than the descriptions and photos suggest. The terraced areas were ideal for eating outside. The pool area was perfect with sun all day. The large garden with a stream running through suited our dogs perfectly. We were serenaded by exotic bird noises each evening and were fortunate enough to have a hare visit along with a heron.
The service provided by the owner was excellent. The booking process was easy and useful information supplied by e-mail. She even helped us to get some much needed medical assistance while we were on holiday. On arrival the property was clean and the owners friends/agents were welcoming.
The surrounding area was also a pleasure with plenty to suit all tastes. We particularly enjoyed walking both from the door and in the Cevennes, wine tasting and the nearby delightful villages.
All in all a lovely property and a lovely area. I would not hesitate to recommend the property to anyone.
