                                                                          Ed B.Loughborough

                                                                          We had a fantastic two week stay with Stephan and Nicole. The gite is well equipped, clean and spacious and the location incredibly quiet, beautiful and, for us at least, the weather was fantastic. Stephan and Nicole are fantastic hosts, welcoming and knowledgeable about the local area and more than happy to help us with any enquiry that we might have (Stephan took us and other guests off on a river adventure each week). Each gite has its own well covered terrace with fantastic views, and there are plenty of other places to sit and chill. Our two girls (8 and 10) loved the pool, the games room and the table tennis and adored the gite and the village. We found it a fantastic base for exploring the Cevennes, even if the roads up to the gite aren't for the faint hearted or those scared of heights! Thoroughly recommended - don't forget to ask about the goat washing!
