The Château provides an ideal setting for a relaxing holiday with its south-facing pool overlooking a secluded valley. It has been divided into 5 separate self-contained apartments, each with its own outside eating area and designed for independent living. The apartments can be rented individually or in any combination for groups. The main apartment has a spacious reception and dining area that is ideal for large parties. The tranquil valley of Bussas offers a perfect retreat. It is in the heart of the Cévennes, an area of unspoilt beauty and outstanding wild life. Walkers and mountain bikers can enjoy the trails through the hills and the majestic scenery stretching towards the Mediterranean to the south and the Massif Central to the north. The resident caretaker and his wife look after the property and guests. They have an organic garden providing fresh vegetables. They can also offer baby-sitting and extra cleaning by arrangement.

The Chateau is truly situated in an amazing surrounding. The entire property and its gardens and pool are renovated with respect and good taste and are well-maintained. We had relaxing and joyfull holidays! Of all the holidays spent in France , it was the best one! We certainly recommend it!
Un petit séjour d'une semaine dans un endroit très paisible, un accueil comme si on était un peu des amis de la famille, le logement (la Clède) très bien équipé, très agréable à vivre, une piscine pour se rafraichir le soir, des kilomètres de sentiers pour randonner...
Quelques discussions bien plaisantes (parfois en anglais) avec nos hôtes et les autres clients, de grandes discussions avec le couple de gardiens (Liliane et Bernard)...
De vraie vacances ...
Merci à Meg et Duncan de leur accueil !!!
