Elegant & Peaceful Gîte in the Cevennes for a couple or two friends

About Valerie Outfin
Valerie and Henry are an English couple who fell in love with the Cevennes 7 years ago. We bought this "mas" (old farmhouse) in 2012 and renovated the gîte apartment in 2016 because we wanted to share our corner of Paradise with others who appreciate nature as we do. It is too beautiful to keep for ourselves! We are passionate about nature, wild plants, foraging for wild plants and gourmet cooking. You will always receive a warm welcome at Gîte du Rouquet en Cévennes. Find out more about our gîte by visiting our website which you will find by searching for "Gîte du Rouquet en Cévennes"

Peace and tranquility
Wonderful stay in this characterful gite. The location is perfect for anyone wanting to get away from it all and the views over the Cevenne hills are unbeatable. The owners are charming, extremely helpful and friendly. Cannot recommend this place highly enough!
It was our great pleasure to welcome you here - you were the perfect guests and we are so pleased to have met you! Hopefully we shall see you both again one day! Valerie & Henry x
A place to enjoy peace, relaxation, hiking snd unprecedented beauty.
A comfortable spacious cottage with a large, sunny patio. The facility has ALL the necessities to make an extended stay comfortable and convenient. The surroundings are stunningly beautiful with panoramic views of mountains and stream. Hiking/walking trails abound. Valerie and Henri, the hosts are friendly, helpful and go out of their way to make you comfortable without impinging on your privacy. They even had a welcoming supply of baguette, croissants and milk, as well as a bottle of local wine. A lovely place run by lovely people in an environment that abounds with stunning beauty.
Dear Nancy and Graham! We enjoyed your stay with us so much - you are such warm, friendly and appreciative guests. People like you make it all worthwhile! We hope you continue to enjoy your trip in France and we hope to see you again one day! Kind regards, Valerie and Henri
THE most beautiful place, an absolute enchanting paradise!
Our stay absolutely surpassed all our expectations. The warm and generous welcome and ongoing help and knowledgable advice by most delightful Valerie was truly special.
The property is immaculately clean, warm, homely and very attractive in style. Valerie provides everything one can possibly need which helps to start ones holiday from minute one. The bed is very comfy and with its cotton sheets it is a real delight to rest ones tired body at night, and to be woken up by the birds chorus in the morning.
The outside of the property is simply magnificent with its views. A short stroll takes you through herbs and flowers with its inhabitants - millions of bees, dragonflies and 40 kinds of butterflies to an enchanting brook where we took several plunges in this hot June week.
The only problem is that it is so beautiful and restful that we did not want to leave for our planned adventures. But once we did drag ourselves away from this paradise we also had a wonderful time kayaking down the Tarn or visiting the surrounding pittoresk villages with its wonderful markets.
We had the most wonderful stay and thank Valerie and Henry from the bottom of our hearts to share this piece of haven with fellow nature lovers.
Anja et Didi - you are the perfect guests! We so enjoyed meeting you and sharing our time together. We are very much looking forward to seeing you again in October. Wishing you a fantastic summer. Valerie and Henry xxx
Nature et convivialité
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour grâce à la situation exceptionnelle du gîte, et la grande gentillesse et disponibilité de Valérie et Henri.
Le plaisir était le nôtre - vous êtes des hôtes parfaites! J'espère que nous nous reverrons un jour et nous vous souhaitons un très bel été ! Merci pour ce beau commentaire.
Un super séjour pour se ressourcer
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour et avons été accueillis très chaleureusement par Valerie et Henry. Nous reviendrons avec plaisir. Il y a de super randonnées qui commencent directement du gîte, avec de nombreuses cascades et beaucoup d’activités à faire à proximité.
Le gîte est très confortable à tout points de vu, et la vue depuis la terrasse est superbe.
Nous avons eu le grand plaisir de vous accueillir au gîte. Vous êtes des personnes charmantes et joyeuses! Nous vous envoyons nos meilleurs voeux pour septembre! Un merci tout spécial à Simon pour ses œuvres fantastiques !!!
Can't beat it for wildlife and hospitality!
The house is situated in a stunningly beautiful river valley of the southern Cévennes amidst acres upon acres of mediterranean hardwood forest. The property has its own super clean stream and the owners keep open sunny patches along its course which are teeming with butterflies and other insects. I can't recall staying in a more peaceful setting anywhere in western Europe and yet it is only a ten minute drive to the bustling little town of Saint Jean with its markets, shops and cafés. Valerie and Henry are great hosts who know the area very well and keep the property spick and span. We felt welcome and cared for from the very first moment and wished we had booked for a longer stay. The area is fantastic for nature enthusiasts, walkers, bikers, photographers but also for swimming in the unpolluted rivers or just enjoying the easy French way of life of the south.
Dear Raoul & Christine - your excellent review just made me cry (tears of joy) - we thoroughly enjoyed your visit and your company and would be extremely pleased to see you both again. We also look forward to your entomological review (if you get a chance). Sending you our fondest wishes! V & H
