I'd call Sally the perfect host! Her warm welcome and all the details she had thought of to make us and our little girl have a wonderful time in her studio made our trip. We spent two weeks in her well decorated and well equipped studio, enjoying the calm of the village, the beautiful landscape of its surroundings and trips to Uzès, Nîmes, Avignon, la Camargue etc. This place is a little treasure!

the instructions for getting to our destination were clear and straightforward. When we arrived our hostess was waiting to show us around and explain all the workings of the place. The studio is a delight, beautifully done up and in a secluded area. We had everything we could possibly need, including a welcoming bottle of wine and bits and pieces for a breakfast the following morning. Everything was spotless, and the care that had gone into the place was palpable. Our hostess was always available for any questions we might have and made us feel completely at home.

Sally’s studio is just perfect for relaxed holidays! It’s nice decorated and equipped with everything you need. We liked the lovely terrace where we barbecued a couple of times. The studio is located in a quiet and nice hamlet. We went swimming at a wonderful local swimming spot, kayaked on the Gardon, explored surrounding villages and made a daytrip to the Carmague. Sally herself is a very friendly and welcoming person! She was always open for a chat and gave us some great advice of where to go and what to see. Thank you Sally! I can fully recommend this studio!

Sally made us feel very welcome; a cold bottle of rose and breakfast for the first morning. The studio is very lovely and spacious, with fully equiped kitchen and a bathroom. We enjoyed the studio, the garden and terrace. It's a perfect location for trips to Uzès and Pont du Gard.

We had the most amazing, relaxing and interesting holiday in Sally's very stylish studio. it was fantastically equipped (down to cling film!) and Sally provided logs for the fire, charcoal for the bar-b-q (both used), and wine on arrival. The interior is beautifully designed and comfortable and the scenery around Sally's hamlet is perfect for sketching (for me) and walking (for us both). Thank you, Sally, for a lovely holiday and for introducing us to local artists and ideas of where to visit.

We had a great stay in Sally's artist's studio, and left the most relaxed we've been for some time! The studio is wonderful, spacious, large and tastefully decorated. The garden is super cute, and the area is quiet and very relaxing. Amazing stars at night! Sally was a wonderful host, we didn't know the region well or have any plans and she had great tips for us (making for one of my favourite days on our very long trip). She also had a delicious bottle of rosé for us, and amazing figs from her tree! We really loved our stay and hope to be back some day!
