Customer Reviews

Kelly family
Thank you Jacky and Hélène for your generous hospitality and friendly welcome. This is such a beautiful and peaceful villa. The grounds are so spacious and we all could find a quiet spot to relax in. The swimming pool was amazing, we used it every day and had lots of fun and games in it. Tennis court, well used equally. Also, thank you for the delicious home grown produce. Pont d'Arc and Ardèche Gorge stunning as well as the amphitheatre at Nîmes.

Jennings family
Once more, a big thank you for looking after us. The villa is as ever beautiful and the garden a quiet oasis. The weather has been wonderful with all but one day. The Ardèche is so peaceful and the people so friendly. All the best. PS: I still do not like aubergines or courgettes! See you soon!

Wood family
We have all had a wonderful week here in your lovely home. You are fabulous hosts making us all feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and you were so generous with the wine, beer, amazing vegetables and of course the Pastis!!! :) The pool is really, really excellent and the garden and scenery are stunning. We will miss you and this house. Thank you so much. D and M I've had a really good time and I'm really sad I have to go. M. We absolutely loved our time here! The pool is AMAZING! You are so welcoming! Thank you very much! G.

Jennings family
Thank you for the incredible care and attention you have given us over the last 3 weeks. Every detail has been considered, nothing is too much trouble and we have never stayed anywhere with a cleaner pool! Both you and your house are an absolute delight!

Arabella, Claire, Andrew, David and Eve
Thank you again for your incredible hospitality! The meal at your place, the melons, vegetables, the wine (and the pastis!) were all great. We really enjoyed the pool, the good weather and beautiful sceneries. We will come back - maybe next year! See you soon.

Mark, Sally and the boys
After an action packed week in the Savoie we came her for a week of rest and relaxation. Mission accomplished! We have done nothing but laze by the pool, chat in the beautiful garden and enjoy candle-lit BBQs. Thank you for the hoe grown and local produce, gratefully received and eaten! Thank you again.

Sian, Matthew, Issy and Lydia - UK
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful house. We have had a wonderful and relaxing week and we would love to come back again. We have loved the stunning scenery and enjoyed visiting the Chauvet caves and the Ardèche gorge. Barjac was a lovely town and we had a good meal there and also in the Guinguette de Rochegude. We really appreciated using the bikes to explore the countryside and our morning ride to St Victor de Malcap to buy breakfast was fun! Thank you again.

Eric, Julie, Ellie + Lily
We came to stay here tired and in need of a good break and left feeling refreshed and fully recovered. The region is full of interest, wild life, history and markets which we enjoyed as much as sitting by the pool. The owners are great hosts and we had a warm welcome when we arrived and always knew help was available if it was needed. We could certainly be recommending this place to our friends when we get back to Liverpool.

Charlotte
Thank you for your kindness and generosity! I have enjoyed my stay here and had the opportunity to practice my French. The countryside and scenery is really spectacular! It was very interesting to discover the region. We have used the pool everyday. We tried the bikes and played tennis. Thank you very much and we hope to return soon!

Ann and Leo
Thank you for looking after us. We have loved being here and spending time in your relaxing and pretty garden so well planned. Our meal with you was much appreciated (and also the wines). Happy memories.

Thank you very much for the amazing welcome and hospitality in this villa! I had an amazing time in the pool and the tennis games were great! I would definitely recommend this beautiful house for all ages and can't wait to come back! Maison La Cèze is definitely my favourite holiday so far!

Tim and Jan, Barny and Hannah and Evie - Surrey, UK
Thank you very much for your hospitality which has been very warm and generous. We have loved your outside spaces and made full use of the pool, table tennis and boules, not to mention the BBQ. What a beautiful place this is and we have especially loved the local markets, Pont d'Arc, Pont du Gard and the Caves at Orgnac d'Aven are spectacular and well worth a visit.

Julien, Emma, Anna, Alice and Joe
Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful villa. We enjoyed lounging around the pool and visiting various markets. The owners gave us fresh tomatoes and bread. As well as showing us around Nimes. We enjoyed their company at home and at a restaurant by River La Cèze". Overall our 2 week holiday has been beautiful in the gorgeous heat and countryside. We will definitely say here again!

Tallboy family (London)
Thank you for very warm welcome. The house is beautiful - especially the exterior and our children enjoyed many hours in the pool and took great interest in the local wildlife! Highlights of the trip included Cap Canoe - a great introduction for a 5 and 8 year old and visiting Pont du Gard (recommend the museum and guided tour as well as a swim in the river).

Mary, Ben, Emma, Sam and Phoebe - Suffolk, UK
We all loved our stay here, beautiful garden and spectacular views all around. We spent lots of time in the pool which was wonderful. We visited Grotte de la Salamandre which was amazing and also le Pont d'Arc and les Gorges de l'Ardèche which were fabulous. We walked and cycled too. The breeze was most welcome, the sunflowers and lavender totally awesome. Thank you so much Jacky and Hélène for making us very welcome. The tomatoes were delicious. We are sorry to leave and hope the next guests enjoy Maison La Cèze too.

Lovely hosts. Made good use of the swimming pool, tennis court and bikes. Had some good meals out in Barjac. Visited local caves which was very enjoyable.

Thank you so much to Helene and Jacky for the lovely welcome we received when we arrived after 14 hours of travel! Full of fun and local knowledge which was much appreciated. Had such a lovely holiday - thank you so much!

Robinson family - Sussex, UK
Had a lovely 2 weeks relaxing in the sun at Maison La Cèze. Thoroughly enjoyed the pool and attempting to play tennis every day. Explored the local towns of Rochegude and Saint Ambroix, the latter excellent for bread / croissants and a morning coffee. We also spent an exhausting day canoeing from Gorge d'Ardeche - highly recommended if you enjoy beautiful scenery, rapids and a chance to picnic outside. Had a lovely meal at Le Vieux Clocher, some wonderful traditional French food in a picturesque setting.

Mathews family - Prague
