Get-togethers, birthdays, cousinade - celebrate in the Cévennes

Our self-catering village dedicated to groups lets you celebrate in complete safety and enjoy the space of an estate for the whole family, with a view over the Gard Cévennes valleys on the edge of the Lozère department in Saint Jean du Gard.

Get together with family, friends!
Over a weekend or during a bridge. Get together for a vacation. On-site facilities to make your birthdays and cousinades a success.
What could be better than children playing with each other during reunions and older children sharing and reminiscing around a friendly bar and communal areas for the whole family. While the kids play on the secure playgrounds, enjoy a game of pétanque, a relaxing break under a chestnut tree. Or simply get together! Let yourself be carried away by the atmosphere and warmth of our gîte for cousinade and birthday parties in the shade of our covered terrace, prepare the picnic in the dedicated kitchen and treat yourself to a siesta in the hollow of a hamac or in the comfortable bed of a bedroom. Become an epicurean.

The advantage of our estate is that you divide up the sleeping arrangements of the rooms. You allocate one gîte per family, friends, loved ones… Everyone enjoys their own privacy and comfort at night, and during the day everyone shares convivial moments together in the reception room.

You want to offer entertainments, activities, visits. For a weekend 2 km away take thesteam train to Anduze, visit the maison rouge museum of the Cévennes valleys. Over several days or 1 week if you like history and Roman remains, from your rental 1 h drive away visit Nîmes, the maison carrée, the arenas, Uzès with the Pont du Gard, and a little further afield the Camargue.

Hiking and cycling clubs, groups, sports associations...

You’re a group of hikers or a cycling club?

Take to the hiking trails of the national park near your group gîte in the Cévennes and cycle over mountain passes. The many hiking trails await you. The famous GR70 le chemin de Stevenson stops at Saint Jean du Gard, just a stone’s throw from the gîte village and your rooms. To reach us, the D’Alès train station is 30 minutes away, and you can even stop off at Anduze and hop on the famous steam train, which stops off at the bamboo grove in Anduze and ends up in Saint Jean du Gard. The Chemin Urbain V elegantly borrows part of this itinerary to then cross Uzès, the Pont du Gard, it bypasses Nîmes and the Camargue to arrive in Avignon.

During your stay on site, Cédric, accompagnateur de randonnée helps you plan your itinerary by offering guide topos on the Cévennes. From your rental, slip on your shoes and set off to discover the Cévennes valleys and ridges, the typical Cévennes farmhouses and houses “les magnaneries”, which were used to raise silkworms.

Cyclos, get on your bikes and set off chasing the passes. The Cévennes offer many passes. Not afraid of a bit of elevation gain? Sault from valley to valley, cross passes, add D+ to D+. By crossing valleys it’s possible to make 3 to 4 passes on your daily itinerary. Prefer to stroll by bike? Ride along the rivers of the Cévennes and the Gardons. The gradient is less steep, and the rivers are as beautiful as they come. Stop off inthe little villages to take a break in the shade of the plane trees and discover the stone houses in granite and schist.

Your vacation rental 10km from Anduze offers the comfort of a guest house with an indoor and heated swimming pool depending on the season. Book one of our offers and your board. From self-catering to half-board.

Motorcycle club, automobile club, vintage vehicles, drive and discover the Cevennes

You’re bound to know it! La corniche des Cévennes. The mention of its name sends shivers down the spines of the most passionate among you. It lies at the foot of your vacation village. This road offers a sumptuous setting for a motorcycle or car outing with your favorite vehicles. Would you like a suggested itinerary to help you decide whether to join us? Set off from Saint Jean du Gard, cross the Col Saint-Pierre into Lozère, ride through the heart of the parc national to Florac, survey the Tarn gorges, climb Mont Aigoual and return via Ganges, the valley and gorges of the Hérault. A detour via the Ardèche and Vallon pont d’Arc is also possible. Ask your car club and motorcycle club about this ride through our beautiful region and you’ll see their eyes fill with happiness.

A visit to Uzès and the Pont du Gard 40 minutes from your rental are also must-sees when visiting the region, as are the Camargue and the Salins du Midi further south.

Like the track? Just 30 minutes from the gîte, stop off for an afternoon at your vehicle club on the pôle mécanique d’Alès. Take to the track, watch the prototypes go by, go karting….

After a busy day, relax and unwind by the pool for some well-earned comfort before returning to your accommodation. Join the gîte village bar for happy moments over a drink with your club, before falling asleep for a restful night’s sleep in one of our bedrooms.

As a small group we leave it up to you when booking to choose several gîtes with or without one of the reception rooms, you divide the sleeping arrangements between the different rentals in our houses. In this case, you use the kitchen and terrace of one of the gîtes to get together.
