Un petit coin de paradis...

  • 5 of 5

Lorsque j'évoque les "Loriots", j'ai immédiatement en tête des mots comme : paradis, calme, repos, beauté, .... C'est déjà la deuxième fois que nous venons et nous avons choisi de réserver l'appartement annexe afin non seulement de bénéficier de son calme (il est un peu en retrait par rapport au reste de la maison) mais aussi de son prix plus attractif.

L'accueil, les services, le cadre, ... tout a été PARFAIT (d'autant que nos chiens eux aussi ont été acceptés et très vite adoptés !). En plus de cela, l'appartement dispose d'une terrasse à la vue imprenable (où je vous recommande de prendre votre petit déjeuner !) et d'un accès à la charmante piscine de la maison ! Nous avons passé un séjour en amoureux d'exception grâce à une propriétaire efficace, disponible et très gentille. Nous sommes sûrs de revenir, encore !

Owner's Response: Here is a TRANSLATION of this charming Belgian couple's review: A Little Piece of Paradise. Whenever I think of Les Loriots words such as paradise, calm, relaxation and beauty immediately come to mind...This is already our second visit and we have chosen to reserve the Wing apartment for its calm (it is a little apart from the rest of the house being an annex (and also because it costs a little less). The welcome, the amenities, the surroundings -everything was PERFECT (even our dogs were welcomed and quickly adopted!) Moreover the apartment has a terrace with a breath-taking view (where I recommend you eat your breakfast) and access to the charming house swimming-pool. We had an exceptionally wonderful holiday thanks to the landlady who is efficient, available and very nice. We are sure to come back again.

Great holiday in France

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely holiday we had in the Wing apartment at Les Loriots. The apartment is really nice and welcoming, pretty, well-equipped and comfortable. The views over the river from the terrace are wonderful. Allie, the owner was very nice and helpful. The village, Collias is a couple of minutes walk away and has all you need - restaurants, bar, little supermarkets and a boulangerie for croissants in the morning - a must! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Back to my favourite place

  • 5 of 5

How wonderful to be back at Les Loriots again. What a breath of fresh air, what peace, what beauty. The sound of the waterfall below the terrace of the wing apartment is just magical. The apartment has such a nice feel to it - homely and comfortable. Allie who is always so helpful has almost become a friend now. Till the next time with the greatest of pleasure!

Riverside retreat

  • 3 of 5

The wing accommodation was comfortable and provided an ideal base to explore the local area. It also gave us a lovely view while relaxing in the garden or pool area. It was easy to get to places of interest such as pont de gard, Avignon and Uzes

Overall we had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay

Owner's Response: I was very surprised to receive only a 3 star rating from these two nice guests who told me several times during their stay what a lovely place this is. They are big travellers who stay in 5 star hotels around the world. We do not pretend to be 5 star, although perhaps they thought we should be. What we do offer is charming, well-equipped, clean accommodation in an exceptionally beautiful and peaceful setting which explains why guests so often return again and again. If you look at the review before this one and my reply giving a translation ( 5* QUE DU BONHEUR, written 28.8, Date of Stay 5.7. by Jean-Luc) you will see a far more typical opinion of the Wing apartment.

Nous avons découvert Collias et sa magnifique région cette année et avons eu la chance de bien choisir (il nous avait été conseillé) notre lieu de villégiature.

La situation de la villa surplombant le Gardon offre une vue magnifique et un calme absolu. Le logement que nous occupions nous a ravi par sa propreté, sa décoration et son confort (notamment le lit, ce qui n'est pas le cas partout et est pourtant important). Le fait qu'il s'agit de "l'annexe" est pour nous un plus, car hormis le prix légèrement moins cher, il y fait plus frais dormir car moins exposé au soleil la journée et il n'y a personne au dessus de votre tête! calme assuré.

L'équipement du logis est vraiment très complet et le fait que nos deux chiens étaient les (vraiment) bien venus était déterminant pour nous. Bref que du bonheur et que des éloges pour la gestion de ce magnifique endroit.

Je terminerai par un petit mot concernant la propriétaire qui est aussi sympathique qu'elle est discrète. Bon maintenant que je vous ai donné les bons tuyaux, j'espère que j'y trouverai toujours de la place l'année prochaine car je compte bien y retourner. Bon séjour à tous

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Jean-Luc for your fantastic review. I am so happy you enjoyed your holiday at Les Loriots so much. I am going to translate it into English so that a maximum of our potential guests can understand it! Title: Nothing but happiness We discovered Collias and this magnificent region this year and had the good luck to choose (it was recommended to us) this place for our holiday. The position of the villa over-looking the River Gardon offers a magnificent view and total calm. The apartment we stayed in delighted us with its cleanliness, its décor and its comfort (especially the bed, which is not always the case and is however important). The fact that the apartment is the Wing was a plus for us as, in spite of the lower price, it is cooler in temperature as it is less exposed to the sun during the day and there is no-one upstairs over your head. Peace assured. The apartment is really very well equipped and the fact that our two dogs were really welcome decided it for us. In short, nothing but happiness and eulogies for the management of this magnificent place. I will finish with a short word about the landlady who is as nice as she is discreet. Good, now that I have given you the word, I hope there will still be room for me to book next year as I would very much like to come back. Happy holidays to you all. Jean-Luc Jacob.

We spent an amazing week her in August. The owner was very welcoming and the apartment perfect. The views over the river Gardon are sublime and kayaking down the river absolutely brilliant. Would recommend unreservedly

Les Loriots is set among the rocks, pine trees and Garrigue landscape just above the beautiful River Gardon below and has magnificent views over the river and its gorges from all the apartments and their terraces.

Languedoc and Western Provence is a terrific region, just full of Wonderful things to do and places to see.

The magnificent Pont du Gard, which is the largest Roman aqueduct in Europe, is just 6 kilometers east and is accessible by car or by canoe. The beautiful 11th century town of Uzes is 12 kilometers away and boasts amongst its many old buildings a splendid castle and cathedral.
