Among all for enjoying the large and superb private overflowing swimming pool looking on the small St Gervais village and on the river Cèze valley.

Visit the surrounding Côte du Rhone vineyards and buy exceptionally good and fairly priced wines.

Go for dinner in small restaurants along the fresh water canal in the nearby Goudargues village renowned as the 'Provençal Venice'.

For all these reasons you will love your stay.

For the same reasons, noisy guests are not welcomed in this quiet place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday. Your villa is a perfect place for a holiday, definitely the best one we have stayed in. The pool was particularly welcome given the heat, but it was a pleasure to stay in such a beautiful well cared for house.

Many thanks again for letting us stay in your house and being so welcoming.

M. White, July 2006.

I did want to I did want to thank you for a wonderful stay, it is a lovely house, so clean and comfortable and you have provided everything anyone could need. The swimming pool is a joy, we loved sitting on the shady terrace reading our books and then slipping into the immaculate pool for a swim, it was heaven.

Holiday at St. Gervais

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at St. Gervais in June 2007 for 2 weeks. The villa was splendid, it had everything that was needed to make a memorable holiday.
The house itself was very large so there was plenty of room for 8 people to enjoy a little private time if needed. The equipment inside was extensive and catered for everything you would need, more than we have at home in fact with a wonderful ceramic hob in the kitchen.
Upstairs the bedrooms are well placed so that no one was on top of one another with plenty of bathrooms.
One bathroom being downstairs was a advantage as one of us was less able.
The pool and outside equipment was great and the local environment meant there was plenty to see and do without driving too far
We have stayed in many self-catering villas in France over the last few years and we all agreed this is the first one we will hopefully be returning too.

Lovely villa, great pool/views, very helpful owner

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for two weeks in August 2014 (two families - 4 adults and 4 children aged 10 to 14) and it was really great.

The Villa and facilities were excellent - beautiful pool and views and a lovely Villa - the photos do not do it justice.

The location was very good as there is masses to go and see around here - Orange, Avignon, Nimes, the Ardeche and the Camargue all easily within reach. It's in the heart of the Cote du Rhone wine region so plenty of lovely wine at good prices is available.

The Villa is a lovely place to stay when not sight seeing with a fabulous pool, gas Barbecue and good air conditioning.

Andree and Henri were very helpful and accommodating. We would definitely recommend this place.

Splendid holiday house in wonderful surroundings

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in this house for two weeks with two families (4 adults - 4 children). We had a fantastic time in all of its facets: the house itself is very nice, extremely well equipped (great kitchen, bedrooms, facilities) with a fantastic swimming pool, and the surrounding area is very nice for daytrips and activities (e.g. kano, museums, hikes, wine tasting, etc.). The house is very nicely decorated with spacious bedrooms with air conditioning. We have rented several houses in the past but never encountered such a nice and well equipped one like this.

Furthermore, from the very beginning we had a great contact with the owners of the house; they are very kind, helpful, and correct people. Honestly, this is the first time in all the years we have rented that we would definitely consider to return for our next holidays. We recommend this villa without any hesitation.

Wonderful Holiday with Two Families!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at St Gervais in July 2012 for 2 weeks. We were two families, with two children each, under the age of 7. We had a wonderful time. The house is terrific and Andre and Henri have done a wonderful main floor/kitchen renovation that was a great surprise when we arrived. The house is very well appointed - you have everything you could need in the kitchen (we cooked quite a bit), a bbq, etc. There is an office area and WIFI throughout. The bedrooms are perfect and two larger bedrooms (both suitable as 'masters' with an ensuite each) are on either side of the upper floor. We loved the house, the pool and the setting - very pretty views from the lovely terrasse. There is room for children to run around and play - including a small swing set and a boules pitch. As city people, we loved the open spaces. Andree and Henri are terrific hosts - very helpful and attentive if and as required. St Gervais is a quiet village but there is much to do in the area - many terrific villages and sites (La Roque sur Ceze, Cornillon, Montclus). As well as many more sites and villages ~20 - 30 minutes away. There is also a wonderful cave just up the hill from the house, Domaine St. Anne that we enjoyed - the best wine of our stay in Provence. We would highly recommend a holiday at St. Gervais - it is quiet and peaceful and thoroughly enjoyable for families.

Wonderful villa made our holiday

  • 5 of 5
There were just four of us (parents, daughter 23 and son 20) but the villa was exactly what we were looking for... spacious, clean, comfortable, finished to a high standard, wi-fi and even with air con in the bedrooms. It provided the space we needed and was very tranquil. Nice views over fields of vines, large outside dining area and a fabulous pitch for petanques. The kitchen is well equipped and fairly new. The infinity pool is excellent - larger than most which means you can swim properly as well as have fun in the water. It was well looked after and always warm! Again, lots of space around the pool. A good gas bbq was provided. The owners are extremely pleasant and welcoming and happy to offer advice on where to go and where to eat. One restaurant recommended to us was La Vieille Fontaine at Cornillon - good food, not too far and with the best dining view in the region! The village of St Gervais is lovely; the couple running the post office/general store are really nice and helpful as is the lady who has started her own small pizza business in the village. The small museum of art in nearby Bagnols s/Ceze is well worth a visit (combine it with a trip to Carrefour supermarket). Uzes, Pont du Gard, caves history, Gorges in the Ardeche etc make for a wide choice of outing. We had a wonderful holiday and would love to return.

Joy in Saint Gervais!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Maison Batty for the first time this summer (last two weeks of June) and it was wonderful. The house is superbly equipped and spacious and every bit as lovely as the photos on the website. Even better in fact! We are a couple in our late forties and we took my mother (aged 80) too and the house was perfect for all our needs. Beautiful scenery, fantastic pool, lovely surroundings. Hard to find anything negative to say. The owners were not able to be there when we arrived but had asked their neighbours to welcome us which they did with much kindness and warmth. We then met the owners later on in the holiday - and they are very friendly and kind too. All in all, a truly lovely holiday and we are longing to return and hope to do so next year.
I would recommend the property wholeheartedly to anyone who is looking for peace and quiet and beauty. We visited the area - the vineyards, Avignon, local restaurants, Goudargues, small villages, Orange, Uzes, la Roque sur Ceze - all definitely worth visiting.
The property was spotlessly clean and well-maintained and the pool is a dream!
Thank you very much, Henri Louis and Andree, for sharing your house with us and allowing us to have a very special holiday.
