We had a wonderful time at Irena's and Bernard's appartment. The appartment is fully equiped for everything you need for holiday and it is decorated in a very tasteful style. Irena is always there when you need her to get some recommendations for things to see and explore in the area. Bernard gave us also recommendations on hiking routes around the area. The appartment is very quite and with peacefully surroundings. We really enjoyed staying there.
Everything about our stay in the cosy gite was perfect. Irena has been very helpful - she told us many interesting and useful things about her estate, recommended an excellent place to dine, and introduced us to their cute donkey Pompom. The accommodation is of impeccable standard and ideal for a relaxing autumn break, which is what we wanted. Irena also gave us some great ideas on where to drive and what to see in the Cevennes (Cirque de Navacelles, the local market in Saint-Jean-du-Gard, etc.). There was also wine and homemade jam waiting for us in the gite (both excellent!)
This has been a truly beautiful vacation for us and we would recommend Irena's place to everyone. Sebastian&Ela
We spend 10 perfect days in this cosy home and it was just perfect!
Irena and Bernard were great hosts, we felt very welcome, had lovely chats and they told us a lot of interesting spots where to go and what to see.
We were welcomed with self-made jam and wine from the region.
In the house is all you need for living, its very quite and peaceful.
You definitely need a car to get there and explore the many things around.
Thanks a lot for your hospitality in your beautiful home!
We had a great time at Irena s place. For those who are looking for a peaceful, lovely and cozy hideaway … this is the perfect spot. The "gite" is equipped with everything you need. We travelled with our 8 month old baby and really enjoyed the nice garden as well as the terrace. You definitely need a car over there, to get to all the great spots in the Cevennes. Irena and her husband are very nice hosts and helped us with anything we needed.
Accueil très chaleureux de Irena et Bernard. Gîte très agréable et conforme à la description. Environnement pour les amoureux de calme et nature, bien situé pour les amateurs de randonnée. Irena et Bernard font preuve d'une grande disponibilité pour leurs hôtes. Une jolie adresse à recommander.
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.
