Interaction with Guests
My jolly & extremely capable manager, Sylvie, lives locally and is available for assistance.
We are in the southern Cevennes, an area characterised by an amazing diversity of landscapes and an unspoilt rural and wilderness environment. Go east, west, north or south and you will find yourself in completely different surroundings, of which the common features are wild natural beauty combined with the human interest of tiny villages and remote farms. We are on the edge of the Cevennes National Park, designated by UNESCO as a world heritage biosphere reserve. You can walk mountain paths where you will meet no-one, cycle on a vast network of virtually traffic-free roads, take your pick of an infinity of splendid picnic sites, swim in pristine rivers. All this you can enjoy from our base only 7km from the lively market town of Le Vigan, and an hour's drive from the buzzing metropolis of Montpellier.
Other Things to Note
Pets are welcome, provided they stay off the furniture and out of the bedrooms.
No smoking in the house itself please.
From Jun 24 - Sep 2, 2016 the minimum stay is 7 nights.
La maison est conforme aux photos. Elle est très isolée, pas facile à trouver la première fois (depuis la D272E suivre direction "La Mouline") mais parfaite pour un séjour au grand calme, et bien équipée pour vivre en autarcie. La piscine est très utile pour les journées de forte chaleur mais elle est peu profonde et surtout en béton sans liner.
We stayed a familiy of five at Ingrids beautiful and cosy country house. Both house, terrasse in the Shade and pool was perfect for our needs and the surrounding view of the Cevennes made a majestic and calming back drop. Furthermore we really enjoyed the area with local river swimming spots and small villages
Ingrid's place in the French countryside was fabulous. We needed a place to rest up between Paris and Barcelona and her farm cottage suited the bill to a 'T'. The swimming pool, the abundant beauty of the property, an array of DVD's to refresh and renew our teenage daughter. . . and medieval villages and castles whichever way you go. If you miss Ingrid's cottage you may well be missing the best part of France.
We spent three glorious days in Ingrids paradise. Absolutely beautiful place. Easy to find, with good directions from Ingrid. Surrounding are had lots to offer, but we opted to stay by the pool. Will hopefully be back again!
We enjoyed staying in this nice place. It was peaceful and pleasant.
Nous avons passé une excellente semaine entre amis. La maison était grande et agréable! Le panorama dépaysant et reposant!
Nous avons fait de belles balades aux alentours,la région est magnifique. Nous avons profité du barbecue tous les soirs!
Nous avons apprécié la piscine avec les fortes chaleurs qu'il a faites! Notre fille de 9 mois a adoré se baigner :)
Nous avons trouvé une maison aménagée avec goût, très propre, il y avait à notre arrivée ces petites choses qui facilitent un séjour confortable, savonnette, produit pour lave-vaisselle, etc. Une belle collection de livres/dvd pour les jours de pluie. Seul point sombre, la taxe airbnb qui rendre cette location un peu chère.
We enjoyed the cosy beautiful old stonehouse with its pool overlooking the fantastic surroundings. We can warmly recommend this unique place.
