Wine tasting, beautiful drives, easy or challenging hikes, many local markets, beautiful natural sights to explore,swimming in the local rivers nearby, canoeing and kayaking just relaxing in our grounds under the shade of the linden trees, with a good book and your drink surrounded by the natural beauty.

It's difficult to say anything that hasn't already been said on other reviews! This is the perfect place to get away from busy modern life and enjoy a slower pace of traditional French life. Fantastic.

Irena is the most friendly host you can wish for. She gave us with great tips for activities in the area. The Cevennes are beautiful! We found it wonderful to stay at this off-located old property. Our apartment was nicely designed and properly equipped. You need some driving ski…
