The Experience

Your only neighbour is an ancient chapel – but a short drive takes you to many more adventures. Set off on walks from the doorstep and explore Vaucluse, Drôme, Ardèche and Gard; a trip down to the famous underground caves of Aven d’Orgnac and Grotte de la Cocalière is sure to delight.

You’ll sleep in the master bedroom in the tower where ceilings are high, floors have original tiles and views are of the countryside and village below. Odile will ask you how you like your breakfast: on offer are eggs, organic produce from the local markets, fresh croissants and bread from the village boulangerie.

Wild swimming is plentiful so ask Odile for the best spots. If you’d rather stay dry, rent a canoe to explore the waterways. For the shopaholics, there is Barjac for antiques and markets (40 km) and Anduze for pottery. History and culture lovers should head to Nîmes for fascinating Roman antiquities, about 65 km away.

Reviews

The rooms are bathed in sunlight with lots of space to curl up with a good book. There's no pool but wonderful wild swimming in rivers nearby which Odile can gives lots of information about. Upstairs from the garden and on the entrance level of her apartment and the B&B room is the vast 400 sqm terrace - with its magnificent views, it would be ideal for receptions, weddings and dinner parties. Odile will assure a warm welcome and comfortable stay.

Location

The neighbourhood

On Saturdays, head down the hill to the village and pick up organic produce from the market - cook up a feast in the evening and dine in the grounds. If you fancy eating out, there's a restaurant 5-minutes away on foot, Lou Caleou. When you're refreshed after a delicious nights sleep in your tower, walk around the medieval villages and vineyards surrounding you.

Local points of interest from Odile de Frayssinet

  • The 14th century restored family château de Vénéjan, a medieval village in the Gard, has sweeping views to the hills of the Ardêche, Cevennes and Uzès valley.
  • The Chateau is located in the village of Vénéjan in the Gard, Languedoc Roussillon  -  the very heart of Provence – with all the magic that the name evokes.  Blessed with three major rivers nearby, the area is verdant and mainly given over to vineyards.
  • My distinctive choice of décor is a huge asset that gives a personal yet creative touch to each room, and includes oriental carpets, original works of art and a grand piano.
  • The immense terrace dominating the valley is unique. Stand and gaze into infinity. At night under the stars it is pure magic.
  • There are myriads of wine domains with excellent wine to be tasted, and local markets, including the beautiful Duchy town of Uzès, sell a quantity of cheeses, patés, vegetables and fruit.
  • Canoeing through the gorges of the Ardêche and Cèze rivers is a major summer activity as are visits to the spectacular grottos and caves - all within a 30 min drive. For golf enthusiasts there are courses in Avignon - 45 mins or Uzès in 30 mins.

Introducing

Odile de Frayssinet

Born in Chile, multilingual Odile takes pride in demonstrating the famous hospitality from the country - she is warm, welcoming and hospitable. With a great love of travel and different cultures, she tours the world as often as possible - ask her for some stories! She lives here with her cat, and her brother and sister live in the other side of the building but you'd rarely bump into them.
