There is a restaurant with bar only 2 minutes walk away and also a very good pizzeria within walking distance, which also provides take away. It is 1 hour's drive to the Mediterranean beaches and the Camargue, which is an area of outstanding beauty, famous for its wildlife including its famous flamingoes. To the north lies the Cevennes national park and the many pretty villages along the valley of the River Cèze.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house in a fantastic setting.The website details describe the house very well and the house is very well equipped. We loved the farm next door for farm fresh fruit, veg, jam and apricot juice (Tues &Thurs ) The wine at the local vineyard excellent. We stayed for 2 weeks but should have stayed for 3. Would definitely recommend and would book again .

Fabulous place to holiday

  • 5 of 5

We found the house to be very well furnished and equipped, we had everything we needed. It is spacious and we found the choice of sitting areas very useful allowing the families to spread out. We enjoyed the pool very much and loved the Summer Kitchen, perfect for lunches out of the hot sun and long lazy evening meals. The village is very pretty, we had a lovely meal at the restaurant over the road as well as enjoying early evening drinks on the terrace at the front of the restaurant on a few occasions, the staff were very welcoming. We also got pizza's to take out from the pizza restaurant just outside the village, to the north. It has a lovely terrace to be able to enjoy Al fresco meals. We loved Uzes, a beautiful town, nice to pass time in the cafes of the Place aux Herbes. The market at St Quentin la Poterie is great to visit on Friday mornings and the Pont du Gard is worth a visit, there is an interesting visitors centre there.

In all, a great house in a beautiful part of France, an area I would certainly want to return to.

Incredible place

  • 5 of 5

This is simply an incredible property. Close by to the beautiful town Uzes but very much it's own place, surrounded by some of the most stunning landscapes in the South of France. The property embodies both the old and the new, comfort with character and has the perfect kitchen and patio for gathering around with the spoils of a day spent in the local markets and vineyards. Chill in the garden and the pool area or pop down to the local café and linger in the charm of St. Siffret.

Un excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une formidable semaine en familles (2) avec enfants (6). La maison est décorée avec gout. Les deux suites parentales sont très confortables avec leur salle de bains respective. Cette maison est aussi agréable à l’extérieur (différents endroits pour petit déjeuner en terrasse dans le jardin ou diner barbecue sous le auvent) qu’à l’intérieur. Les enfants ont été enchantés par la piscine qui tient toutes ses promesses. La propriétaire est très réactive. L’accueil (ainsi que le départ) par l’agent local est efficacement et chaleureusement mené.

Les petits détails font la difference ( jolie vaisselle de qualité, aucun ustensile ne manque, tout est en état de marche).

Décidément, cette maison a été bien pensée dans sa restauration comme dans sa décoration pour un excellent séjour familial...comme celui que nous venons de vivre.
