LA PATISSERIE

St Sauveur de Cruzieres Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Character self catering gites & large luxury pool in South France.

Our stone cottages are perfect for couples wanting a quiet holiday with a luxury pool and comfortable facilities.

Conveniently situated for Avignon, Nimes, Arles, and Uzes. With the Cevennes and its hills and valleys close by, we are perfectly situated for walkers and cyclists, & there is horse riding in the vicinity.

There are colourful markets in Barjac, Les Vans & St Ambroix all within easy reach. Uzes market is particularly colourful and even has its own web site.

The Ardeche Gorges are 20 minutes drive away and great for canoeing, kayaking or just sightseeing.

A beautiful part of France!

Though our cottages are part of one ancient stone building, they are at different levels and aspects and are all different, having the ambience of an ancient stone hamlet.

There is a lovely courtyard separating our house from the accommodation and even a small spring running by the buildings.

Share our Mediterranean garden and our luxury salt system 13.7 metre pool with its poolside bar.

Pool Area.: The luxury pool is set in a sunny Mediterranean garden of oleander, olive trees and native herbs & flowers. Dimensions are 13.7 metres (about 45 feet) by 5.5 metres and it has Roman Steps descending into the shallow end. There is a gentle gradient from 1.2 metres at the shallow end to a deeper area of about 1.5 metres. The pool has a salt water system which is both kind to the skin and repulsive to wasps & other unwelcome guests. We have installed a heat-pump system which provides warm water in an efficient eco-friendly way.

Our sun loungers are textyline, a special fabric designed for pool use. Our chairs have a similar fabric, especially for your comfort between dips.

Our pool-side bar carries welcome cold beers, chilled rosé from the village cave co-operative, & soft drinks.

Mediterranean Garden.: Our garden is planted with trees, shrubs and flowers native to the environment and climate of Southern France. You will enjoy the scent of lavender, rosemary and other herbs around the garden and the colourful Laurier Rose or Oleander planted near the pool. Jasmine and honeysuckle are everywhere!

In the garden we have staged a picnic area with rustic table beneath the cherry trees. For relaxing among the olive trees moments there is a 'Ballancelle'. For those bursts of activity we have created a boulodrome and even installed lighting if you fancy a lazy evening game.

Our 'espace Wi-Fi' by the fish pond is a comfortable place for you to connect to the internet.

Places to Visit in The Area: The Ardeche Gorges are a 20 minute drive away. The road that winds along the top of the Gorge from the famous Vallon Pont D'Arc has many stopping places from which to enjoy the spectacular views. At Vallon there are many hire centres where canoes and two seater kayaks can be paddled along the river through the gorges. A truly magnificent experience.

Uzes is a medieval town with many attractions and a maze of alleys and narrow streets to explore. The famous tree lined Place Aux Herbes is host to a colourful and fascinating Provencal market.

Avignon and the Palais des Papes is an easy drive away as are the ancient Nimes & Arles with their Roman remains.

Visit the Pont du Gard to see the remains of the Roman aquaduct, which is a World Heritage Site, or experience one of the spectacles held there in June.

Nearby, the Cevennes is a place of wild beauty, with ancient chapels in stone villages tucked in among the forested hills and valleys. This region is a hikers paradise.

Following a teenage hitch-hiking trip round France some (OK, many!) years ago, I vowed I would return to the Ardèche!

I finally made it...hope you will love it too!

Phil North purchased this cottage in 2007

Well, of course the location is perfect for a visit to the region, and we also enjoy the benefits of the village...the friendly village baker is across the road. There are trails to hike and run from the gate. And we were seduced by the ancient stone buildings, also great views...did I mention the village wine...?

Our home is a little stone hamlet with a fabulous garden...we love it...and so do our guests, many return every year!

Des vacances très relaxantes

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons passé dix jours dans lieu qui nous a enchantés. Le mas est en vieilles pierres et nous a énormément plu.
Nous avons pu nous détendre à la piscine et caresser Jac, l'un des deux chats de Phil, notre hôte.
Une belle adresse et de belles vacances!

A gem of tranquillity in surrounded b y beauty

  • 5 of 5
The gites were immaculate, furnished with imagination, and with every piece of equipment necessary for a stress free holiday. The pool was quite magnificent and the gardens a gem of tranquillity. The surrounding countryside and small towns make it such an enjoyable place to holiday, which is why this was my seventh visit. Going back again in October.
Phil and Tina are great hosts and nothing is too much trouble. We are looking forward to "Aperos" down at the pool again"

Real quiet rest

  • 5 of 5
A great host, very caring owners. A very warm family atmosphere, the sense of sharing and service. Good advice about the area, small producers, places and opportunities for visits.

The services are excellent and the quality of the cottage is exeptional. A green oasis for calm, to get away from stress, this cottage is for you. Notice of a Parisian scientist eager to rest and relax (a rare moment in life).
I will keep a memory deep in my heart for these three weeks allowed me resources myself and get back energy. Moreover I enjoyed practicing my English with Phil & Tina. They are real nice people very warm and open. Long life to them.

unforgettable holiday

Cave aux Vins

  • 5 of 5
Spent a brilliant week in August 2010 in the Cave aux Vins at La mas de la source. Very well equipped and spotlessly clean gite. The beautifully landscaped gardens and pool were immaculate. An excellent central location for visiting the Cevennes region and the Ardeche Gorges. The activities in the region range from horseriding, kayaking,fishing,walking etc.
The owners Phil & Tina are on hand to give advice on restaurants and local attractions. They were really great hosts. We spent a couple of evenings at the pool side bar with them....very entertaining! Keep up the good work Phil & Tina
Hope to visit again, Thoroughly recommended to all who read this.

A perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5
The property was excellent in every way, very well and carefully maintained and ideal for a comfortable base for two people. The quality was of a high standard and amount of facilities/equipment indoors and outdoors was very good.The heated pool and surrounding grounds were very clean and well maintained. The situation was relaxing and peaceful with scenic views, and the proximity to the village boulangerie was an advantage. The owners were very welcoming and friendly (without interfering) and we appreciated having chats and their help/advice about the local area. It proved to be a good base for travel to Avignon, Pont du Gard, Cevennes, Nimes, the Camargue, St. Guilhem -le-Desert and numerous other places. Shopping for food was easily accessible in nearby towns and markets. The restaurants in the larger towns/ tourist areas were varied and numerous but in smaller villages the restaurants were not open for the season yet. (late April/early May)

Enjoy the warmth and sunshine of Southern France, relax by our large pool and canoe or kayak the famous Gorges de l'Ardeche. Stay in one of our comfortable, character gites and you are well placed to enjoy a very special holiday. The Gorges de l'Ardeche are an easy 30 minute drive, Avignon and the Palais des Papes is nearby. The area enjoys many other interesting attractions and colourful markets.

Our village, Saint-Sauveur-de-Cruzieres has many old stone buildings and a small river flowing through its heart. Across the road from our Mas and gites is the boulangerie and we are a few steps from two bar - restaurants. We overlook the countryside with its vineyards and olive groves and dramatic hills in the near distance. Our climate is Mediterranean and we enjoy plenty of sunshine.

Our stone buildings resemble an old hamlet and are centred round its courtyards and a small spring that flows through the property, our colourful garden has lavender, olives, thyme, rosemary and the spectacular Oleander.

It would take many visits to see all the local attractions. There are grottos and caves to explore, plenty of castles and medieval villages and towns with their colourful markets to choose from.

The area is very popular with walkers & cyclists.

The Cevennes are a short drive away. Here, serious hikers can face challenging trails through the rugged and dramatic scenery.

The rivers Ardeche, Ceze, and Chassezac all have gorges to visit, swim or canoe through.

Other Activities: Canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, sightseeing, visiting markets & just relaxing!
