What makes this House unique
Great Pizza oven! Peace, tranquility and privacy Excellent. Steve and Chantal were perfect, charming hosts. The accommodation was well equipped and the pool and views were lovely. Location in pretty location and very peaceful but close enough to larger villages for restaurants and amenities when needed. Wifi coverage extended to the rental gite. This was a minor inconvenience though and actually quite welcome to have downtime from emails and regular contact with the outside world. Wifi was available in the shared outside kitchen area if we needed it. Mr C, Uk, Sept 2017 Fantastic location in peaceful village, surrounded by several vineyards. The pool is excellent and all equipment is in good condition, perfect for a quiet getaway. A lovely welcome from Chantal and Steve with a meal waiting for us on arrival was very kind. As the weather was so hot we spent a lot of time at the pool. Venturing out to the pretty towns of Soave, Anduze and St Jean du Gard and surrounding areas which are within an easy drive. We had a perfect relaxing week. Mr C, UK, June 2017 Comfortable, clean, with everything which could possibly be needed in the kitchen. Mrs E, Wiltshire, June 2016 Good, as described - very satisfied. Mrs E, Kent, UK, Sept 2013 Good quality accommodation. Friendly and helpful hosts. Mrs H, West Sussex, July 2013 Good accomodation - quality as expected and hosts very friendly. Mr M, W Yorks, UK, June 2013. Very very nice. Well equipped too. Mrs G, E Sussex, UK, August 12 Excellent, very well equipped, excellent location, helpful hosts. Mrs B, Derbyshire, UK, July 12 It was a lovely gite, clean, comfortable with a beautiful pool and perfect setting with gorgeous views. The owners of the gite were friendly and provided excellent information about the local area, but we also had our privacy. The welcome meal and food in the fridge was a lovely idea and much appreciated and the pizza night was a must. Mrs SK, Nottinghamshire, UK, July 2011.

St Jean de Crieulon is a small peaceful hamlet not far from the busy and historical towns of Nimes, Arles and Avignon. .
For those who enjoy a more active holiday why not hire a bike and take to the quiet roads where you can take in all the magnificent views and scents of the land. Horse riding tours are also available on your doorstep. Within 1½ hours, from December to March, you can be 1500 metres high and amongst the snow! There are two ski lifts.
Sightseeing You are just minutes away from Anduze and the gateway to the Parc Nationale des Cévennes where you can walk, or visit the famous Bambouseraie (Bamboo Garden).
If you would like to dabble in a little painting, a tutor can be arranged or perhaps a tour of the vineyards for some wine tasting is more to your palate!
The weekly morning Market in Gange on Friday is a large affair where you can buy lots of fresh, locally grown produce, flowers, chesses and wines. There are also daily markets in Anduze on Thursday mornings and Tuesday evenings and Quissac on Wednesday mornings.
There are large Supermarkets in Quissac which is 7kms and Anduze which is 12 kms away. Your fresh bread is delivered to you daily (except Wednesdays) by request.
If you want to take a break from the cooking just chat with your host and he will delight you with a menu
