We stayed here with another couple of friends and found it surpassed all our expectations. It is exceptionally well-equipped and has plenty of comfortable chairs and sofas. It was spotlessly clean and very spacious. We enjoyed cooling down in the plunge pool!
The village is within easy walking distance and there are shops, bars and a couple of good restaurants.
Lots of interesting excursions including Pont du Gard, Avignon, Orange and the delightful local town of Uzes.

We 2 pensioners had a superb holiday at the house in 2 weeks of very hot sunny weather. House very well furnished, kitchen and utility good modern equipment. Good boulangerie and metro-style small Carrefour in easy walking reach. Indoor swimming pool and conservatory needed cooling off on afternoon return but they will extend the season in the spring and autumn. Deep pool gave a nice end to the day. Lots of places to visit. A touch of the real France. Quiet private garden- lawn and shade
