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.
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.
- No more than 2 pets per booking.
- Pets must be cleaned up after immediately.
- Young children must be supervised by an adult at all times when around the pool or playing in the yard. The pool does not have safety railings or an alarm system.
