Description

The space

Our home is located in the Cèze River Valley which is one of Provence's best kept secrets!

From Saint-Gély, the picturesque villages of Cornillon, Goudargues, Roques-sur-Cèze and Montclus are minutes away. The region is extremely rich in history. Roman and Medieval sites, towns, and cities are abundant. La Maison des Roses is conveniently located in the heart of the Roman Ruins, with easy access to the Pont du Gard, Orange, Nîmes, Uzes, and Arles. Avignon is a 35-minute drive and the former summer home of the Popes of the 12th Century, Chateau Neuf du Pape. known for its prestigious wine, is 15 minutes away!

For those who enjoy wine tasting, Saint-Gély has a wonderful winery. There are also innumerable fine wine cellars in the area, with Chateau-Neuf-du-Pape being the most prestigious, only a twenty-minute drive away.

The region's landscape allows for diverse outdoor recreational activities. Visitors enjoy kayaking, canoeing and hiking. Adventurers also go spelunking and caving in the Ardèche river valley system.

This self-catering, 200 year old Provençal stone home has all the amenities of a modern holiday home. A Provençal style kitchen, equipped with a stove top, built-in oven, dishwasher, full sized fridge/freezer and microwave, adds ease and comfort to your stay.

The dining area with fireplace opens to a large sunny terrace overlooking our garden in the quiet village of Saint-Gély. Dining on the rose-covered terrace, overlooking the 4m by 10m kidney shaped pool and spacious garden, is a romantic way to end your day. The garden is surrounded by a 3m high hedge that provides privacy.

A living room with down filled sofas and chair, located off the dining room and terrace is a nice place to take a break from the sun. With wireless internet access, you can research the next day's adventures. This village home is an excellent holiday accommodation for any family or group of up to 6.

Guest access

You will have exclusive access to the entire 3rd floor of the home. This consists of 3 bedrooms, one shower room and one W/C.

Shared parts of the home include:
- kitchen
- dining room
- living room
- terrace
- pool & yard

Interaction with guests

I will be staying in the room on the main floor, and will be available for travel consultation, tips on the area and near by activities/events. You may see me cleaning, cooking and doing general maintenance around the house. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have!

The neighborhood

St Gély, Languedoc Roussillon,France. A stroll in the neighbourhood is is lovely view of the center of the village of St Gély, and you are about 100 meters away from vineyards which encroach upon the village. The quiet village has an auberge and restaurant which is a popular spot for locals. There are beautiful walks to the river, and to groomed trails to the hillside Chapel, that connect with trails that lead from village to village. Goudargues, which offers all amenities for travellers is a few minutes drive.

Getting around

The best way to get around is by car, as there are many pittoresque secondary routes to enjoy the Cèze River Valley and environs. Buses are available, however, due to distances, and great opportunities for site seeing, I would opt for a private vehicle to have high mobility. Cycling is big in the area as well.

The house was perfect, located in a lovely part of France. It has everything that you need for good holidays: a good size swimming pool, some confort chairs to relax, an outdoor dinning area and a barbecue etc. The beds were very confortable (beddings and towels were provided), the kitchen well equipped, the house was also equipped with washing machine and tumble dryer... This made us the perfect house for our family of 5 and for some friends who visited us. The neighbourhood was also good, Saint Gély is a quiet village, and Goudargues is a charming village (located less than 5kmw from St Gély). Communication with Claudette was very easy before arrival. We would highly recommend the house. Only one downside is the check-in and check out times that could be better (5PM / 10AM). Appart from that, thank you Claudette for this great experience/. We just widshed we could have spent more time there!!!

Claudette's home is located in a small idyllic village near Goudargues and was an ideal base for day trips around this pretty part of France. The host was very accommodating to our needs and our party really enjoyed the advantage of the pool for the kids and the wonderful terrace to relax in the evenings. The house was full of character and provide everything you could need for a comfortable stay. The river Ceze 2km away was a great favourite of our party for canoeing, swimming and stone skimming. We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend this to others looking taste of rural french life.

This is a beautiful location in an absolutely stunning area. We adored our stay here aside from a few issues - our favourite aspects of the house: the beautiful covered terrace where we ate our meals, the wonderful pool and lounge chairs, and our proximity to wonderful villages, vineyards, historic sites, and everything you would hope a visit to Provence would include. The kitchen is as described and well equipped. Monique the lady who takes care of things was very nice and was there to meet us as soon as we arrived. She welcomed us with a bottle of local wine and ice cream bars for the kids. For an old house such as this, you cannot expect things to be in pristine condition and this is no exception. We found most of the amenities to be overall satisfactory, however, parts of the house were un-usable which are worth mentioning. The indoor "lounge" area was musty smelling, cluttered and uncomfortable (the TV and DVD player did not work). The outdoor lounge "La Cave" pictured in the profile is not at all as was full of leaves and dirt, and being used as a storage area- there is no couch and chairs for relaxing whatsoever. The gas BBQ available is ancient. You are basically cooking over a gas flame (no lava rocks or briquettes). The charcoal BBQ wasn't much better. We found the cleanliness overall to be very average - the rugs all need a good shaking out, the bedding was very tired (mattress covers looked unclean, no covers on the pillows...) and we were provided with the very minimum in terms of towels for our stay, none of which were to be used near the pool (not very convenient for a family of 4 travelling). Also the drain in the shower on the second floor was clogged with hair which had to be dug out at one point during our visit. The shower on the main floor was un-usable - the shower head sprays water everywhere but on you, and with only half a shower curtain, not a good idea. The ceiling fan in the master bedroom was broken, as were the two fans we were given to help in the interim. We were quite shocked to hear from the owner after our visit that we had left the house dirty. Despite having removed all of our trash, cleaned out the fridge,etc., and removed all bedding/linens as directed ... Not sure what the $107 cleaning fee was supposed to cover...
