Featuring a trampoline, hammock & BBQ, this little gem for 5 persons is in the heart of magical St.Guilhem le Désert.
Situated a few steps from the medieval Abbey of Gellone, this charming two-bedroom house comes fully equipped and is newly renovated with style and sympathy to the history of this legendary village.
Set on three floors, this charming home will provide you with all the comforts you need for a restful stay. Wifi, linen, towels, coffee/tea are all provided free of charge.
The gîte has stunning views from every window and is surrounded by birdsong. There is fresh mountain spring water on tap, only a step from your door. It tastes amazing.
Relax in your private garden, with a cold glass of local rosé, and admire the ancient Abbey of Gellone. Snooze on the giant 2-person hammock. And with trampoline, basketball, archery and lots of summer games equipment, your kids will be happy all day.
At night, all you shall hear is the gentle gurgling of the river Verdus, as it winds its way to join the magnificent Hérault. And the chatter and songs of birds. No cars, no traffic, no stress.
The fantastic river beach at the Pont du Diable (“Devil’s Bridge”) is a great place for young children to swim safely and play. And it is only 5 minutes away by free bus.
A kayak through the Gorges de l’Hérault is a journey of wonder. Take a picnic with the kids and spend all day dreamily drifting along the river, soaking up the breath-taking scenery of the steep-sided gorge and cooling off in the fresh mountain water.
You will have private and sole access to the whole house and garden.
You will be met personally on your arrival at the village. I will show you where to park your car and give you the keys to your holiday home. I am very flexible about arrival times but please do let me know your travel plans well in advance.
I can provide a shopping service for you and stock your fridge. Want cold champagne? You got it! Want French cheese and baguettes? No problem! You really can't miss your English breakfast? Haha, I know just where to buy it! Just send a message at least 3 days before your arrival with your shopping list.
You have the benefit of free and safe parking, in the public car park of the village, for the duration of your stay.
The house is set on 3 floors and has one security gate installed. If you need a crib, I can have one ready for you. Just let me know if you have any special requests and I will be happy to help.
I am an easy-going 56 year old. I have lived in St. Guilhem for 8 years. I have two wonderful children and we all love this legendary village. I like to take walks along the river, hike the mountain paths or kayak and swim with my family. If you love history and nature, this is the place for you! I know the area well and am here to help you have a wonderful holiday.
