Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

I can only repeat what the other reviewers have already stated.

The gite was very clean and tastefully furnished and decorated. The position of the gite couldn't have been better with the stunning view over the gorge from the bedroom and the terrace. We enjoyed our strolls on the footpath near the gite to the village and the river.

Tom and Alice were the perfect hosts - very friendly and welcoming, but unobtrusive.

We have recommended this gem to our friends.

Thank you Tom and Alice for such a wonderful holiday x

A beautiful gîte with exceptional views.

  • 5 of 5

The gîte is just as beautiful as the pictures. It was clean and decorated to a very high standard. The facilities are beyond the usual expectations with a lot of little touches like a supply of herb, salt, oil, tea and coffee in the kitchen, dressing gowns in the bathroom and extra blankets and cushions. The bed was extremely comfortable and the living room was a relaxing and well appointed space. The kitchen had everything that you will need if you wish to cook a full meal. The terrace has the sun from about 2pm allowing a morning spent in the shade and an afternoon spent in the jacuzzi!

Tom and Alice, who own the gîte, welcomed us like old friends and were able to give us details and recommendation of near by restaurants, shops and attractions. We had contact details for them and nothing was too much trouble.

The gîte is a short walk along a foot path to the village, where there is a good range of restaurants. There is also a small shop selling essentials like bread, cheese and wine! The closest super market is in the next town and the owners will be happy to provide directions.

There is also parking which makes this a good spot to use as a base if you wish to explore the area, however we spent most of our time on the terrace enjoying the sun and the view.

I recommend Le 180 without hesitation.

Un havre de paix !!!

  • 5 of 5

Déjà dans un premier temps nous somme arriver le soir, les propriétaires nous attendez, sa était très gentil de leur pars, au niveau de l'accueil rien a dire, on est vraiment bien pris en charge de A à Z, le jaccuzi mis a notre disposition était même prés à être utiliser. On était déjà combler rien qu'à l'arriver...

Ce qui était dommage c'est que nous n'avons pas pu voir la vue tout de suite vu que nous somme arriver tard le soir mais finalement sa était pour nous une magnifique surprise le matin a notre réveil, une vue juste impressionnante et dépaysante...

Rien a dire non plus sur l'appartement en lui même, une déco splendide et une propreté impeccable, je dirais qu'il à été conçu a leur image et déborde de bonne énergies.

Nous avons été skotcher par cette région et par les habitants qui y habite et je dirais même que nous sommes tomber littéralement fou amoureux de leur joie de vivre et surtout de leur simplicité qui en dégage...

Balazuc est un endroit pleins de caractère créer par ses propres habitants et ressource le corps et l'esprit.

Nous remercions déjà Alice et Tom pour leur attention envers leur hôtes et toutes les personnes qu'on a rencontrer à Balazuc qui nous ont rappeler qu'il existe encore de très bonne personnes simple et vrai avec le coeur sur la main... Merci encore !!!

Je recommande a tous ceux qui hésite a réservé ce gîte de charme et à découvrir ce havre de paix !!!

A très bientôt Mickael et Elisabeth.
