The property is a lovely old stone house in one of the most beautiful villages in France set amongst rolling wooded hills and vineyards. The house has been modernised and has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a large well equipped kitchen, family room, library, and sitting room with TV, DVDs and large open fire. Wifi is available in most parts of the house. There are three south facing terraces and small pool.
The house is both spacious and cosy, and the interlinked rooms and terraces make it easy to be part of a family or group but also to have your own space.
The Ardeche, Cevennes the historic towns of Avignon, Nimes, Uzes and Orange are within easy driving distance. For wine lovers there are the vineyards of Lirac, Tavel, Chateauneuf du Pape, Gicondas and Vacqueyras amongst others of the Rhone valley.
There are two restaurants in the centre of the village and two more on the outskirts (though they may not be open in the winter).
The river Ceze is a short walk away with rapids and a popular river beach. There are some lovely walks, and riding, kayaking, cycling, caving and fishing amongst other activities are available nearby.
A car is necessary if you want to explore the wider area.
Avignon (45mins) is the nearest train station with Nimes just a little further. There are airports in Avignon, Nimes, Montpellier and Marseiile.

This place is truly remarkable, beyond expectations ideally located in a gorgeous medieval village - one of the “plus beaux villages de France". The "maison" is very very spacious and very tastefully arranged. We were a group of 5 and had ample room to be together for meals (several choices inside and outside) or read alone tucked in a corner. Each bedroom is different, all spacious and luminous. Very modern kitchen, well appointed. Mary is a delightful host, non-intrusive but helpful and full of information about the area.
De verwelkoming van Mary was heel attent: er waren croissants, fruitsap, koffie en thee om 's morgens ontbijt te maken en ze had een fles wijn voor ons, en chips en koekjes voor de kinderen klaargezet!
Het huis was kraaknet en héél aangenaam en ruim! Het is wel niet geschikt voor mensen die niet goed te been zijn, vanwege de sterke helling waarop het huis gelegen is en de trappen.
Het dorp is zalig stil en Mary heeft een uitgebreide mand vol adressen en tips!
Zeker een aanrader!
The property and village are absolutely beautiful. Mary is very helpful and welcoming.
The photos do NOT do this incredible house justice. 4 huge bedrooms with crisp linen on the beds, 4 bathrooms, several living areas, multiple terraces, and every inch of the house is spotless and tasteful. A perfect place for large groups. The village is small and incredibly picturesque. The kayaking you can do on the river below the town is fantastic too. We couldn't have been happier with this house. Mary was a fabulous host too. Very happy guests, highly, highly recommend!!!!
We've rented many times through airbnb and other vacation rental sites. On all fronts, this rental is a 10 out of 10. The place is amazing and the pictures don't do it justice. Mary is wonderful and very professional, the accommodation is set up for rentals. At the same time, it is warm and cozy. I felt like we were staying in a friend's home. Maison La Roque is a special place in an enchanting little village.
Mes amis et moi avons séjourné durant le we du premier mai au sein de la maison de Mary!
Dès notre arrivée dans les lieux, nous nous sommes tous exclamés d'un "WHAOUUUUU!"
Cet endroit est magique, décoré avec goût et tellement agréable à vivre!!!
Nous étions nombreux mais n'avons en aucun cas été dérangés par les uns et les autres! La maison est spacieuse et dispose de 4 salle de bains!
Les chambres et la literie sont excellentes... Et les terrasses multiples tellement agréables! Tout est à disposition pour passer un séjour idyllique!
Mary est très acueillante et disponible!
Malgré un temps qui n'était pas des meilleurs, nous avons passé un magnifique séjour!
Nous recommandons vivement cette maison! Et une chose est certaine... nous reviendrons!
The house is gorgeous and the village very beautiful. We enjoyed a lot our stay and will come back for sure to spend more time (a week-end was too short). Even if the weather was rainy one day, we enjoyed staying inside by the fire. Mary is very welcoming and helpful (she managed to find enough bikes for all of us on our request).
I am English and before coming to La Roque I lived in London. I have three grown up children two of whom live in England and one daughter here in La Roque. I always wanted to live somewhere where on could walk on bare feet on stone floors and it was sunny and where it was easy for my family to visit. I have a degree in Microbiology and an interest in alternative medicine but not to the exclusion of allopathic and in environmental issues. I love cooking and exercising (weights) plus walking with my daughter's chocolate lab ador
