Our rustic, beautifully renovated cottage on an old silk farm in the Cevennes, offers an idyllic spot for exploring this beautiful part of France. Wine tasting, beautiful drives, easy or challenging hikes, many local markets and villages to explore,

The Space

This is a cosy apartment, beautifully restored in a beautiful French rural space. It has one spacious bedroom upstairs with King size bed. The large bathroom is tastefully decorated and comes with shower and w.c. It is also upstairs opposite the bedroom across the small oak floor landing.

Downstairs is a bright large space with a kitchen diner and lounge area. The lounge has TV and sofa which converts into a sofa bed, plus armchair, and coffee table.

The gite is in an historic building dating from 19th century updated refurbished to a very high standard and with care and taste

Outside (email hidden) for you to take your meals with your own private dining area, as well as eating space inside. We have outdoor table and chairs in front of apartment. Looking out onto expansive lawn, flowers and the shade of the ancient linden trees.

The property is set on 7 acres of land so very quiet and peaceful nights, share with the owls and crickets in the summer. Wake up to the sounds of the birds.

In the autumn and winter, great place for hikes, chestnut and mushroom picking. We also have a log fire as well as central heating for cosy evenings.

We are 5 minutes drive from the village of Lasalle where you can find the bakers, pharmacy, local market, and other shops.

We are 12 minutes (email hidden) St Hippolyte du Fort, ad 15 minutes from Anduze. All these places have great restaurant choices and supermarkets etc. Restaurants also 5 minutes drive away.

Car is required to get to our lovely spot and to discover the rich heritage of this part of France. Great vineyards and wine tasting, famous sights. 1 hr from the sea.... Hiking from the house and many other great hiking trails.

We are located in a site of great natural beauty tranquility and calm.

We also live on the same land, but in a separate house. You have complete privacy and independence. however, if you require any help or information there is usually one of us around. We also own a friendly dog, 3 cats and a donkey. We cultivate an large organic garden and soft fruits.

Come and enjoy a special taste of France, in a beautiful setting and not far from many wonderful sites and towns....

Guest Access

It features your own outside dining area with table and chairs and use of the front lawn and sun chairs. We also have a set of petanque. You can also take some lovely strolls around the grounds offering extensive views of the Cevennes hills, and distant chateaux.

Interaction with Guests

We are available to help you with any questions you may have about the area and local restaurants etc. We also provide local maps and hiking guides and have a collection of tourist info pamphlets.

The Neighborhood

We are situated on private land of 7 acres, in an area of outstanding beauty. Its very peaceful and quiet to enjoy relaxing days resting on the lawn under the shade of the linden trees, enjoying a glass of local wine and catching up with your favourite book. Also many sites to see to keep you busy and entertained.

Getting around

You will need to have your own car. If you are here for hiking, we are situated on the GR so you can walk from our house, and many more hikes a short drive away. There is parking for your car. You can hire a car from Nimes, Montpellier if you arrive by train or by airport. The TGV from Paris to Nimes takes 3 hours.

Other Things to Note

We have our own organic veggie garden, and often there is a surplus of veggies which we are happy to share. We also sell our delicious homemade jams.

  • Irena est une hôte très agréable et intéressante, son gîte est tout simplement adorable ! Nous y avons passé 3 jours, et c'était parfait : du calme, de la verdure, une décoration intérieure charmante... le gîte est propre et très bien entretenu.

    La région également offre plein de possibilités d'activités, de balades, de randonnées etc...

    Une bonne adresse que je recommande.

  • Indeed a very cosy cottage that looks perfect inside as well as outside. The location is beautiful with lovely helpful owners Irena and Bernard. And off course the nice dog and donkey.
    You need a car to see the environment, but due to the nice location it's worth it.
    We've had a wonderful week there!

  • Super séjour dans la dépendance du gite d'irena. La maison est confortable, propre et est empreint d'un charme typiquement cevenole

    Les hotes sont discrets, gentils et à dispo si vous cherchez des destinations sympas a pieds ou en voiture du gite

    il y a pleins de ballades a faire à pieds a partir du gite sans avoir besoin de reprendre la voiture

    super gite si vous cherchez un endroit tranquille et plein de charme!

  • Irena nous a accueilli avec beaucoup de bonne humeur et d'hospitalité dans son charmant gîte tout confort au milieu de la nature, auquel on accède en voiture après un long chemin à travers la forêt... Dépaysement et repos assuré ! Le gîte est idéal pour un séjour en amoureux, ou avec un ou deux enfants, pour visiter la région sud des Cévennes, notamment la Bambouseraie d'Anduze, la magnifique grotte des Demoiselles, ou encore le village médiéval de Sauve.
