Imagine yourself hiking, biking, canoeing, taking a paraglider from the top of the canyon rim 1200 ft. above, or simply relaxing, sightseeing and tasting all the local specialties, right here in the middle of the UNESCO World Heritage Grand Causse and Cevennes region.

 The guest house house is beautifully located in the Dourbie Valley at the foot of the  Causse Noir plateau. Being at the end of a cul-se-sac situated in a quiet residential area, there is no traffic near the house, ensuring your peace and quiet during your stay with us.

  The guest home is a renovated “maison de vigne”, a traditional stone shed used to store garden tools and especially to make and store wine. The ground floor is 24 square meters (around 250 sq ft.) which includes a fully equiped kitchen area, table, couch, with DSL WIFI and television. A winding stairway leads up to the bedroom and bathroom. The room has a new queensize Tempurpedic bed, a big dresser; the closed off bathroom has a comfortable showerstall, toilet and washbasin. 

 Heating during the off season period is by electric radiators. Bathroom is equiped with a separate heated towelrack.

 You have specific access to your own parking area, right next to the house, which can be secured with an electric gate. The entryway to the house is a comfortable terrace (17 sq m, approx. 180 sq ft.) with outdoor table and chairs.

  Behind the house is our private 9mX 4.5m X 1.4m swimming pool and adjacent hot tub which we gladly share with our guests. The pool and tub have a marvelous view of the cliffs behind the house; no dwellings beside nor above the house add to the feeling of privacy and wellbeing.

  Unsurprizingly the area has been classified as World Heritage by UNESCO. 

And yet we are only 2 miles from the town center and one mile from several sports basecamps offering canoeing, kayaking, canyoning, paragliding , outdoors cliff climbing, accrobranche (adventure climb in trees), electric mountain bike rentals etc.

 For hikers and bikers we have all the local topographical maps available and would love to share our savvy of the beautiful and spectacular paths and trails to be seen in the area. 

 Please feel free to ask any questions concerning the accomodations , surroundings, activities. Looking forward to hearing from you,  Eugène and Veronique Gaudet.
