This classy studio (40 m²) is in the centre of a medieval village, in the midst of the beautiful mountains of Cevennes.
Shops, cafés, hiking trails and bathing spots are at walking distance. Enjoy modern comfort with old stone walls and wooden floors in an authentic protected nature environment.

Fully equipped kitchen, Internet, private bathroom, 40m2 terrace.
Sumène is nested in the beautifull mountains of the Cévennes national Parc.
Not to far (but far enough) from the vibrant cities of Montpellier and Nimes, you will enjoy the quiet surroundings, the magnificient landscapes, the many walking trails, the medieval scenery, the lively markets and the constant blue sky. But!... you won't get bored! The village location and gentle climate has attracted many young dynamic people and families.

You will meet artists, musicians, craftsmen, permaculture farmers, gardeners, acrobats, philosophers, buddhists, shepherds, webdesigners, beatboxers, dreamers, ...
You can have your daily dose of outdoorsports, nature, inspiration, massage, local delicious foods, meditation, live music, art or just lay-back and relax!
Taking a daily bath in one of the waterfalls, tasting the local goat cheese with a piece of freshly baked organic bread, dancing with a brazilian batucada during the yearly festival and listening to a band while enjoying the sunset are some experiences you can't miss!!!!!

I live near by so if you want to meet some locals...
I know the region for 10 years now and have plenty of good adresses, tips and connections!! I love to travel, and connect with people from different cultures!

Check In
  • Melanie was extremely helpful with explaining hikes to do & sights to see in the Sumene area. She offered further assistance if required, and provided complete privacy.
    Accommodation was exactly as we expected from pictures on website - great kitchen - well equipped; bathroom - shower was great!

  • Beautiful, large studio. The photos do not do this immaculately finished apartment justice!

    A large courtyard (with sun for most of the day) leads onto the main room which has a large bed and well equipped kitchen/living area with a dining area, sofa and desk. The bathroom is large and the shower excellent.

    The host is very welcoming and speaks excellent english and gave us lots of useful information and found things out for us whilst we were there.

    The surrounding area is beautiful and there is plenty to do (if you aren't too busy relaxing!) including walking, exploring and cycling. Le Vigan and Ganges both have large supermarkets and the village has the essentials.

  • Beautiful apartment, really clean, nicely outfitted. Melanie was super considerate of a travellers needs, so there were all kinds of thoughtful things for us to use i.e.. olive oil, good salt, wine glasses. What a treat to stay there. The place has been wonderfully redone and we loved the shower and the terrace where we ate many a good meal. There is a nice little grocery store across the street and so we were able to make some good meals there. Melanie was the ideal host, available to provide information on the area but respectful of our privacy.

  • Melanie went out of her way to welcome us. The apartment has a lot of character and is very well fitted out and presented. There is also much more space than we expected and we were very happy.
    Thanks for a great stay.

  • The apartment is well set up and we enjoyed the brief stay cut short by a family crisis. Melanie is a very friendly and helpful host.

  • We spent 10 days at Mélanie's studio and loved it!
    Beautiful, big, cosy studio (great kitchen and shower!). Mélanie showed us magnificent spots to swim in the rivers and waterfalls nearby and the hiking trails start right in front of the house.
    Thanks Mélanie for a great holiday!

  • Très joli grand studio, refait avec beaucoup de goût! V aiment très bel endroit et grand confort (salle de bain très agréable et très bon couchage). On s'approprie très vite les lieux Une hôte très discrète qui a pris le temps de vouloir nous conseiller sur les activités alentour. Une belle et grande terrasse. Petit bémol elle mériterai d'être un peu plus végétalisée pour s'isoler de la route ( il faut encore des bambous). c'est le paysagiste qui parle.
    Le lieu reste un très bel endroit que je recommande

  • What a lovely studio! Such care and artistry in the finishing! We took the winding road to the village, which was exciting, but it was great to find a less exciting way out, too! Great communication, perfect directions, comfortable bed! Thanks so much!

  • Très bon séjour dans un endroit cosy, chaleureux et très bien agencé. Notre hôte a été parfaite et soucieuse de notre bien être. Le village est authentique et charmant. Beaucoup de ballades et de randonnées à faire aux alentours. Très bonne adresse!

  • The studio was so cosy and Melanie is very thoughtful and kind, speaks fluent english and always there if you need her! The studio is equipped with everything you need for a few days. If only I could have stayed longer. The shower was wonderful, so relaxing after a long day driving. Stop at a supermarket on the way and make the most of the great kitchen and lovely space by cooking something delicious. Sumene is a very small neighbourhood, so picturesque and quiet, go for a bush walk up the back of the mountain. :)
