About Ian Berman
My parents originally bought this property, and it has been a family vacation place for me and my 7 siblings for many years, so there are many fond memories of the place, the people and the area. We are a family from Denmark so having such a great holiday place has been a real treat for us all. All rental revenues are reinvested into the property keeping it's maintenance at a high level, yet retaining its unique rustic character.
Ian Berman purchased this Cottage in 1978

A truly wonderful holiday exceeded our expectation
This is a French home which we felt we had been priviledged to have been allowed to have for 3 weeks in this wonderful area. We celebrated 2 special occasions with our large family, all of the accomodation was homely clean with all that we needed. We were able to have privacy in the individual cottages but there was a wonderful seated area and dining area to accommodate our 14 guests. The cottages are in a lovely little village. Quiet with very kind and friendly neighbours. There are too many lovely villages to mention but great cycling opportunities around. Verfuil has a lovely boulangerie which we visited mornings. It is a peaceful and tranquil haven and we could not recommend it highly enough. Thankyou to the owners you have a very special place .we are delighted we had the opportunity to share it
My family and I spent our Easter vacation at this rental property. It was just what we expected. Comfortable beds in private cottages well appointed with individual kitchens and baths. We enjoyed the small town nearby where we went for our daily croissant and coffee. The beauty of the area and availability to nearby day-trip destinations made this a wonderful location for us. The pool and outside terraces were beautiful although we did not have the weather to enjoy them. We are already planning a return trip next year during warmer weather and will book this place again.
The place is a little paradise
The place really is a little paradise, with lots of space at different terrains and levels, beautiful nature, a splendid view and with much privacy, on the outskirts of the small and quiet village of Goussargues. In short, the location and ambiance can be appraised as excellent.
The accommodation is split across three restored old rural cottages which together offer a lot of sleeping and cooking facilities. We only used the main cottage which is very characteristic yet somewhat crammed with 'collections'. We rate the housing accommodation as good, with lots of charm and very spacious. However one should not expect the highest level of comfort.
There is a nice private swimming pool with clean water that is frequently maintained by a very friendly and helpful caretaker.
Goussargues is a few kilometers away from Goudargues, which is a very charming village on the banks of the clean river Cèze.
We left Les Cent Chênes with very pleasant feelings and would definitely consider to come back.
Einfach nur SEIN
Das Anwesen liegt in einer wunderbaren Landschaft . Einfaches, sehr sauberes Steinhaus, zu Wohlfühlen.
Der Vermieter ist unkompliziert und sehr zuvorkommend, auch die Verwalterin Maria ist ein richtiger Goldschatz . Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen.
Das Haus liegt abseits und doch sehr zentral, für Wanderungen, Ausflüge etc.
Ich kann das Anwesen jederzeit weiterempfehlen.
Nochmals ein herzliches Dankeschön.
Gennem de sidste 12 år har vi holdt 14 dages ferie på det skønne sted ”Les Cent Chenes” i den lille fine, bakkede landsby Goussargues. De sidste 8 år sammen med svoger og svigerinde, og derudover har vi haft forskellige gæster. Det har været børn med børnebørn, men også venner har kigget forbi og er blevet adskillige dage.
Der er forskellige huse bygget traditionelt af sten, og der er rigtig god plads, så man kan sagtens være sig selv indimellem og lave forskellige ting samtidig. Der er mange separate sovepladser egne indgange og toiletter.
At sidde på stenterrassen og kigge ud over dalen, en lavendelmark med nogle bjerge i baggrunden fuldstændig fredeligt, er bare det skønneste.
Derudover er der en herlig pool i den ene ende af grunden, hvor man kan svømme rundt eller flyde på en luftmadras og kigge ud over træer og marker.
Her må jeg fortælle, at jeg er kørestolsbruger (manuel), og at det er så vidunderligt, at poolen har hejs med sejl, så man kan blive liftet i bassin eller ned på en luftmadras. Her tilbringer jeg hvert år mange timer.
Som kørestolsbruger kan man selvfølgelig ikke være i huset uden hjælp. Men med en minicrosser, så man kan komme op til huset fra parkeringspladsen, - der er stejlt, og der er nogle hårnålesving at forcere, en WC/badestol - der er udendørs bad nær ved poolen - og en mand eller hjælper til at rulle lidt rundt med én, når det er nødvendigt, er det et helt vidunderligt sted. Minicrosseren er i øvrigt god til en tur i bjergene bagved huset, på div. markeder og i de to ”stejle” byer La Roque-sur-Céze og Saint Quentin la Poterie.
I den nærmeste by Goudargues, hvor der i øvrigt er marked hver onsdag, ligger der skønne restauranter langs kanalen, der flyder igennem byen under platantræerne. Og så er der masser af udflugtsmål ud over de allerede nævnte: Uzès, Le pont du Gard, Nimes, og hvis man vil køre langt en dag Carmarguen med flamingoer, hvide heste og sorte tyre, samt Aigues Mortes (korsriddernes udskibningshavn - kom tidligt, der er mange besøgende).
Great environment for a summer holiday
Great environment for a summer holiday. The outside is fantastic. Nice pool, well maintained by the caretaker. Great terrace, with all you need in terms of places to relax, eat, play, ... The inside is cosy, but a little dark perhaps. But that should not be problem for summer, as you live outside most of the time. Even when it rains, you can sit on a covered terrace.
