The Experience

In the wild Provençal garrigue… pines, olive trees, aromatic shrubs, a beautiful dark lap pool, an eco-house built of chunks of local pine, street art hiding in the garden: sustainability partnering with sleek design. Each of the three lodges has a Jacuzzi and sauna on a private terrace, a guitar in the big room, and lots of glamour among the 20th-century musical references. Manuel and Elodie care for the details – designer lighting, classic modern furniture, high-quality bedding – and bring an organic breakfast hamper to your door each day. Lounge on the muslin-draped sofas by pool, barbecue in the summer kitchen; set off for cultural hub Nîmes; explore the Cévennes or the Camargue wildlife reserve on Manuel’s bikes. Then order hot or cold platters, for supper by the pool or in your own space.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Manuel Mamane

  • The heated over-flow swimming pool is bleach-free and 20m long, open 24/24h.
  • You can enjoy private spa and sauna on your terrace. Water is changed and heated before your arrival
  • You can leave your car behind and go for a ride with our complimentary bicycles: The city of Nîmes, “Little Roma”, and its unique Roman buildings is a must-see, only 3 miles away. If you’d rather stay uphill you can ride through the pristine “garrigue”
  • We are surrounded by major tourist spots such as the Pont du Gard, the Camargue, R. L. Stevenson’s Cévennes mountains, the medieval city cities of Uzès and Baux de Provence, Arles and the papal city of Avignon
