We are committed francophiles, originally from England(Joan) and Zimbabwe(Brian), but now loving life in France, where we have lived ever since we discovered this magic place seventeen years ago.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2001
Why Owner chose Saint-Étienne-de-Gourgas
With reminders of Africa in the dry rocky landscape, vivid flowers and empty star laden skies, we fell in love with this wonderful location. Joan says think of "Cragside" in Rothbury, but with a mediterranean climate.
What makes this Apartment unique
The peace and quiet of this spot is very special, and we feel privileged to be able to enjoy the wonderful flora and fauna that surround us. And yet while the world seems far away, we can still enjoy the benfits of the wonderful towns and cities that are close by, such as Montpellier(only fifty minutes away..)

an ideal get away from it all.
Les Rochers is a lovely holiday rental. Set in woodland & it's very quiet (apart from the cicadas). Having your own pool is a big plus too as it's very hot. Most places worth a visit are accessible within one hour.
The drives out are very picturesque which can make days out even longer as the photo opportunities are many!
Brian was a great source of knowledge for places to visit. We particularly liked Lac Du Salagou, La Couvertoirade, Mez (although our son was stung by a jelly fish),Montpellier,Millau Viaduct & lots of other places too.
Les Rochers is ideal for families, honeymooners looking for relaxation etc.
It is so nice when people make the most of everything there is to offer, both at Les Rochers and within the area. Thanks for being such great guests.
A wonderful place to relax.
We chose Latigat because we were looking for a relaxing place. It was amazing because it was March, the time when the nature wakes up after winter. We enjoyed walking in the forest seeing new colours, but most of all sitting on the patio hearing the birdsong when the sun is going down.
The house is very comfortable and has everything you could need. Unfortunately it wasn’t warm enough to enjoy the swimming pool of course, this is way I want to go back in summer.
All in all we had a lovely time, and hope to go back and see more of the area one summer. The only problem is, the property is so lovely it's hard to drag yourself away and go sightseeing!
We are delighted to hear how much you enjoyed staying in "Les Rochers" at Latigat. We would love to welcome you again . You were great guests.
Des vacances au calme
Des vacances on ne peut plus au calme, au milieu de la foret.
Tous les équipements nécessaires sont présents dont piscine , Ping Ping pétanque badminton. Avec un grand terrain clos pour votre animal de compagnie .
Un seul mais : un rafraîchissement de la déco et des équipements seraient à prévoir.
La piscine chauffée est très agréable mais elle n est pas juste à côté du logement et pas acccessible entre midi et deux et après 18h30/19h.
Toutefois nous avons passé de très bonnes vacances et Brian et Joan sont d une grande gentillesse ! Merci à eux !
