We stayed in this beautiful gite for 3 nights in September as part of an extended driving trip through Europe. It was our first visit to the Provence area of France, and you definitely need a car in this area. We were greeted by Régine and Martin when we arrived, and even though Régine does not speak English, she had printed out instructions in English for everything we needed to know for the house. She also has a great sense of humor.
The house itself is very large for a 2 bedroom . The master suite with terrace is gigantic. The house has a large private courtyard and even an enclosed garage. The views were magnificent. It is situated on a large farm property where herbs are grown, so the views from the upstairs terrace were of acres of greenery. Since our hosts live next door, it was easy to ask for help any time we needed to.
Everything in the house was very clean and well maintained. On arrival, we were given grapes (from their own vineyard), a bottle of Rose wine, and a beautiful (homemade) apple tart.
It is a short drive to Pont du Gard (Régine had given us a 30% discount coupon) , which was beautiful. We spent a wonderful afternoon there. We also drove a short distance to a Park and Ride in Avignon and took a free shuttle bus into the city center where we visited the Palace of Popes and other attractions. (It is not suggested to drive directly into the city center).
There are a few grocery stores in the town close by, so it was easy to pick up supplies. The weather was so good we barbecued one evening in the courtyard.
We would love to come back and stay longer on our next trip.
