Gîte du Rouquet

The gîte du Rouquet is in the Cévennes National Park – which is a World Heritage Site: Cévennes National Park

Ideally suited to a couple or two friends but can accommodate up to 3 adults.

The apartment is newly renovated and furnished to a high standard. There is a mixture of stylish antique and modern furniture and fittings. We provide everything we imagine you will need for your vacation.

The apartment comprises:

A bedroom with:

  • Double bed, bedside tables and lamps, wardrobe and an en-suite shower room with integral WC.

An open plan living room/kitchen with:

  • Double sofa bed, coffee table, TV (French and English channels), video player, sound system, table and chairs and free unlimited WiFi access.

  • Guests have access to our utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer, ironing board and iron if needed.

The south facing patio is private and furnished with sunloungers, table and chairs, cushions and a parasol. You have free access to the 50 acres of land with green oak, pine and chestnut forest (hills), meadows, streams and waterfalls. You are just a short walk from some lovely hiking routes.

We provide you walking maps, tailor made walking brochures, binoculars, baskets and several reference books of the local flora and fauna. Brochures of things to do and places to go are also available.

As you may have travelled far without the opportunity to shop (and of course you are on holiday) we provide you with a welcome hamper to enable you to enjoy an evening meal and breakfast: 

  • Locally produced wine
  • Home made jam
  • Pasta
  • Pasta sauce
  • Local goats cheese (“pelardon”)
  • Butter
  • Milk
  • Bread
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Various home produce when in season

We also believe it helps to have free access to all those little essentials when staying in a gîte, so we supply:

  • Washing up liquid
  • Cleaning materials
  • Toilet rolls
  • Kitchen rolls
  • Herbs
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Home made soaps
  • Home made candle perfumed with essential oils

Your bed will be made ready for you with quality 100% cotton bedding, towels and facecloths are also provided.

Please note that mobile phones rarely work here as the gîte is not within line of sight of any telephone transmitters. Consequently the views are completely unspoilt and no other properties can be seen from the building. If you need to make phone calls you are welcome to use our phone in the main house free of charge to all landlines in UK, Europe and the USA.
