About the Owner

Hello. Jenny and I moved here from London in 1991 with our young family. We sought space, a beautiful and tranquil setting, a genuine ancient house with a view, no noisy roads nearby but it had to be close to all the facilities we needed. Not that easy to find but we did and here we are nearly 20 years later and never saw anywhere better! It was an all or nothing move. Jenny is now a local councillor. I play in the pottery studio when I get the chance. One of our sons has just married into a French family and other sons have chosen, after university in the UK, to live near here. I guess that's a good endorsement. No photo of us as we don't really come with the gite! But you'll see us around, occasionally by the pool.

Tranquil...but lots to do...perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (inc 2 teenage boys) stayed at this lovely peaceful gite in the foothills of the beautiful Cevennes for 2 weeks in the school summer holidays and we all loved it. Nick and Jenny made us feel very welcome as soon as we arrived and we saw them most days around their lovely large pool where we also made friends with the other guests. Our gite was clean and had everything we needed including private garden with hammock, BBQ, and also there's fast wifi! The property has three other gites but there's plenty of privacy. Nearest supermarket is a 3 min drive or you can walk the 20 mins along the lane and river to historic Sauve where there are local shops, cafes and some good restaurants, there's also a local excellent restaurant which is only 5 mins walk. Loads to do in the surrounding area: Sauve itself is worth a good walk around with its medieval streets and strange rock formations above the town. Day trips included fantastic canoeing in the hills, Nimes with its perfectly preserved roman temple and amphitheatre, the Camargue national park with its flamingos and great beaches and the medieval walled town of Aigues-Mortes.

All in all we had a great holiday, in fact, because it was so good and with there being so much more to see and do, we're going back again this year!

From the Owner

Beautiful meadowland surrounds you in this conservation area giving you space to breath. Barbecue in your own garden or wander across the meadows and play a game of boule Everyday you'll see eagles overhead. But you'll be only 3 minutes drive to supermarkets, restaurants (even closer), and genuine village markets. There's a delightful walk from your gite by gardens and river to the authentic medieval village of Sauve with its many artists and musicians. You'll have complete privacy but Jenny and I are always there to help with any problems you may have from puctures to lightbulbs.
