“Lovely welcoming hosts”
Reviewed 24 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Merv and Jane are wonderful hosts, cooking for us on two occasions and providing daily morning croissants and baguette.

This is a comfortable and very well priced gite. One double room suitable for a couple, though if you're very tall you might find the bed a tad short (this is quite normal in France I think). Generous twin room for children, and a well stocked kitchen. Smart, clean bathroom. Living area is on the small side but then if you go in summer you'll be outside by the pool anyway. The magnolia tree is magnificent. I didn't go into the pool but it is a good size, ideal for messing around or for a few lengths.

Merv is an expert walking guide. This was my second trip with him, having come across him when he was tour guide on an Explore holiday in Italy I went on in 2011. This time I went independently - much cheaper - and he saw to our every need, taking us to mountain walks we could never have found on our own, as well as trips to Saint Chinian market and a cave for wine tasting. He also provided pick up and drop off from the airport. Jane is a great cook!

The village itself is typically rural and very quiet. The bar (5 min walk from gite) does an excellent and very well priced plat du jour. No boulangerie or butcher but there is a Depot du Pain, so you can get your daily fix.

Ideal for a quiet break.

“Easily the best Gite yet!”
Reviewed 12 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This couldn't have been a more perfect holiday location. Other reviewers have pretty much covered it all e.g fantastic hosts , gite , environs , pool , weather etc etc etc
With our 12 year old daughter and a 14 year old son with us there were also plenty of things to do within easy distance - great go-karting , bicycle hire ( even an old railway line to cycle along if hills aren't your thing ) , canoe-ing down the lovely Orb river ( we were lucky that the hyro-electric guys upstream had let some extra water down on our day so the rapids really were rapid! )
Les Gorges d'Heric are great for a fairly gentle wander through or a much more energetic climb up the side to amazing views.
This was the 5th year in a row we've been to the South of France staying in Gites each time , and this was by far the best in all respects. Can't wait to return to do the same and other things we didn't get round to doing ( including downhill scootering through woods which looks great! )
Might even get a smile out of the lady in the bread shop next-time ... that'll probably be our funniest challenge!

“Lovely village, very friendly and helpful owners, great area, excellent accommodation”
Reviewed 28 May 2013 for a stay in April 2012

The Gite had just been finished when we stayed, and the pool was not quite complete , but everything else was superb. The area is great for cycling (superb smooth tarmac, unlike UK), there is a Natural Park not far away with great walking, and the sea is about 30 mins away. The village is very quiet but has a bar/restaurant and a depot de pain. Merv and Jane couldn't be more helpful and are happy to point out the best routes. A car is an advantage to get to the supermarket, and local markets and to access the Natural Park area. We had a great stay and will definitely go back again, highly recommended.
