The Experience

Enjoy the company of Sinsay and his guests on the sun-dappled breakfast terrace. Fruits from the garden, eggs from the hens and views stretching to the Cévennes. This 18th-century mansion, its south wing a former coach house, sits on the main street of a wine-growing village. Behind its gates lies another world.

Three generations live here, in luminous rooms filled with personal touches: grandfather’s paintings, grandmother’s quilts, a young child’s decorations. In the part-wild garden, find a secret corner, laze beneath the cedar, dip into the pool.

Nearby, discover Sauve, an unspoiled medieval town beside the river Vidourle, and Anduze, where you can buy garlanded garden pots and see the famed bamboo forest. Then it’s back to a (pre-booked) dinner: vegetarian with an oriental touch.

Accommodation

Reviews

We found this wonderful chambres d’hotes by chance. It is a huge spacious 18th C house, plainly decorated, in a tiny wine growing village, with extensive and lovely grounds (and a welcome, small, above ground swimming pool). Breakfasts were fabulous, with home grown and cooked produce and eggs from their hens. Dinner, if you order it, is equally delicious, ample, and very good value. Our rooms were large and cool and Sinsay and his family were charming and welcoming. Dealing with Sinsay over the booking process was very straightforward. We would definitely return.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay having been given a very warm welcome by the family.

Andrew, Bangor

We stayed in the beautiful attic room for two nights in this stunningly restored french Villa. Everything has been so tastefully decorated, and our stay was perfect from start to finish. The surrounding area is so picturesque, with so much to do and see, we really fell in love with this part of the country. The host, Sinsay, was extremely welcoming and helpful and our stay here was honestly the best part of our holiday to France. We couldn't recommend enough, and we will definitely be back some day soon.

Rebecca, London

Just an amazing stay. Tranquil village, a house oozing real character and inhabited with a family that are so genuinely hospitable and helpful that you cannot fail to have a great time! From helpful advice to lending bikes, and a memorable dinner experience with the whole family. You will not find a better stay in the area. Here's to Sinsay et KInnari and family!

Location

The neighbourhood

Hike in the wooded hills of the Cévennes; cycle among the surrounding vineyards. For cafes there’s lovely old Sauve; for a special meal, ‘Les Secrets de Celine’, Lézan (an 8-minute drive). The closest big city is Montpellier - elegant, cultured and one hour away. Closer to home are Arles and Nîmes, packed with Roman treasures. And don't miss the arcaded market square of Uzès (40 mins); it may be touristy but it’s atmospheric.

Introducing

Sinsay Phothirath

In 2015 Sinsay and his sister moved into the family's "holiday cottage", 15 years after their parents had made the move from South America. You can tell they're well-travelled: they love meeting new people, and their house contains travel mementoes. Sinsay offers meals on request, and happily accommodates children.
