Le Domaine de Monteils is located between Nimes and Montpellier, near the small medieval town of Sommieres.
This area is famous for its wine, and is bordered in the south by the lakes of Camargue and the sandy beaches of Languedoc, and in the north by the spectacular Cevennes national park.
The area is full of fantastic historic sites, including the city of Avignon, the medieval duchy of Uzes, the roman towns of Nimes and Arles, the UNESCO "World Heritages" locations of Carcassonne and the Pont du Gard, and a number of other charming villages.
From April to March, our gites are rented weekly from Saturday to Saturday. the rest of the year arrival and departure day are free.
Exceptionally welcoming and kind hosts with a lot of respect to your privacy. Perfectly furnished apartment with attention to details. Domaine itself is very attractive property with a big history. Lovely and peacefull surroundings. Number of tourists sites reachable in a day trip. And as a result: wonderful, relaxing and comfortable stay. Thanks for it, Richard and Frideric!
The sweetest and most responsive owners, picturesque landscape, stunning room and perfect location ever : a dream of a stay.
Richard et Frédéric ont non seulement transformé les ruines initiales en petite merveille, restaurant le lieu avec le plus grand respect tout en lui conférant l'inclination design qui ravira les amateurs d'épure; ils travaillent en sus au quotidien à assurer la beauté de l'endroit et le bonheur de leurs hôtes, malgré leurs emplois respectifs.
Le Rêve d'Evan, que nous avons occupé une semaine, tient du rêve en effet (voûtes superbes, espace immense, cuisine et salle de bain dernier cri, tout en parfait état, de propreté aussi), mais les autres gîtes (Timéo, Matteo, le magnifique espace encore en restauration, bientôt à louer) sont du même standing, dans un esprit délicatement plus rustique.
Piscine et parc superbes, un calme incroyable - on se serait crus seuls au monde; vous serez libres de nouer des contacts avec les autres hôtes (tous extrêmement discrets lors de notre séjour) ou de vous bercer de l'illusion que Monteils n'accueille que vous: les deux sont possibles!
Le lieu invite à la déconnexion, et la connexion internet peut en effet s'avérer relativement bancale, du moins dans le Rêve d'Evan (elle est parfaite en revanche sur la terrasse privée incluse). Monteils est une bulle inclinant à ralentir, pour le meilleur. Les villages environnants, le médiéval Sauve particulièrement (5-10 min en voiture), invitent également à la flânerie et à la contemplation… et à se régaler! Tous commerces à 10 minutes, les magnifiques Saint-Guilem et Uzès à proximité, etc… la réalité est en exacte conformité avec le descriptif.
Une fois encore, tout le mérite de la réussite de notre séjour revient à Richard et Frédéric, qui réalisent un travail exceptionnel au quotidien (un détail qui compte: Richard attendra votre départ en excursion pour réaliser les travaux même minimimement bruyants sur le domaine!), et témoignent un véritable attachement à ce lieu, où ils vivent eux-mêmes, et dont ils sont l'âme.
Un très grand merci à vous deux et au plaisir de revenir!
We had an absolutely amazing week-long stay with Richard & Frédéric. Their space was superb, quite, totally relaxing, very private and extremely comfortable. Domaine de Monteils was, without a doubt, our favourite stop during our time in France.
The hosts were extremely welcoming. Richard was warm, charming and though a bit self-conscious about his English, he worked hard to communicate with us and did everything he could to make our stay a lovely one. Frédéric was also an ultimate host; full of local knowledge, pointers for what to see and great suggestions for day trips.
Their book and DVD collection was a lovely 'extra' (especially because we'd been traveling light) and the private spa was immaculately clean and a real treat.
The buildings were spectacular and the hosts were happy to show us around the grounds, up into the tower and the other rooms (some of which are still being renovated). They've done an amazing job with an incredible eye for detail and a lovely sense of style.
The place is a bit hard to find the first time, especially if you're arriving at night (make sure you get the GPS coordinates to make life easier). But, it's not too far from shops, great markets and some spectacular neighbouring towns (Uzes, Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert is a MUST see, Sommieres...).
We can't say enough about this place and we'll definitely recommend it to our friends... though with the worry that it would be all booked out when we want to go back next time!
Thanks again to Richard & Frédéric - great hosts, spectacular space.
We were looking for a quiet relaxing place to enjoy our honeymoon and really chill out after the stresses of planning a wedding. The dream lost and spa along with the amazing setting gave us everything we wanted and more. The style was perfect with all the mod cons you would want. The hot tub was a highlight for us as sitting out at night with a glass of wine along with the stunning view was brilliant.The whole place is very peaceful and beautiful. Richard and Frederic were the perfect hosts very attentive but also respectful of your space. Very knowledgeable about the area and have a great vision for the rest of the renovation. We cannot wait to go back and see the next completed part of the project. Thank you for helping make our honeymoon special. x

We're very cool, young minded, and we always do everything we can to provide the perfect welcome for our guests. Renting luxury holiday suites was obviously our vocation: We're fascinated by ancient buildings renovation, design and decoration, we like to see our guests fell well at our place and we like meeting different people from any horizons.
