About this listing
Situated in the Parc Naturel Regional du Haut Languedoc and surrounded by forests and springs, the gite is a charming 1850s stone and old beams building with its own garden.
2 double beds, one being a futon in the mezzanine. Garden, trees, flowers.
My little ecological cottage is good value for money with its private garden. It is well equipped and situated in an authentic region rich in natural beauty, old stone houses, but also culturally.
A studio-like space (one large room) with one BZ foldeable bed, one double futon in the mezzanine (up a ladder), all made in wood. A shower corner with shelves, a kitchen corner and a table for 3; Compost toilets in a separate building, overlooking the mountain and the stars; one portable loo indoors. Microwave and a small TV.
The charm of the gite is its wood beams (1850) and stone look, a bit Zen, easy to keep cool or warm.
The variety of landscapes, the proximity of a buddhist tibetan temple, and the cultural events organised by the Spa Town of Avène made me fall in love with the place.
The private garden, deck chairs, barbecue, private parking.
Interaction with Guests
As much as they wish to and depending on my activities as I grow my own vegetables, make jams etc. But I am 'on the spot', if they need me, especially as I am totally bilingual.
Warm welcome by this ex-acupuncturist.
What I love the most is to be surrounded by trees, and that the landscpe changes within 1O minutes, the mushroom picking in the autumn, the wine festivals and many free wine tastings...but also the authenticity of the locals who still speak 'patois'.
