Gîtes in the heart of the Cévennes Mountains
At Gardoussel, we offer gîtes (holiday apartments) for rent for those who want to stay with us on an independent basis, either self-catering, or eating at local restaurants/cafes. All our guests are welcome to make use of our workshop/chillout spaces (indoor loft, outdoor yoga decks) as well as any additional activities/therapies that take their fancy (see 'Therapy' for details).
Our two beautiful, independent gîtes (holiday apartments) are available for weekly rentals for those who want to do their own thing at Gardoussel Retreat. We have 2 gîtes available:
* le Pigeonnier has two twin/double bedrooms with a 2-person sofa bed in the living room giving it a total capacity of 6 people. It has a large kitchen with an open-plan living/dining room, wood burning stove and a shaded terrace for outdoor dining, plus a shower room and a separate toilet. 500€ per week
* le Gîte Vert also has two twin/double bedrooms and a two-person sofa bed in the living room (total capacity 6 people). It has a living/dining room with an open fireplace and a modern fitted kitchen as well as a terrace shaded by overhanging vines for outdoor dining. 470€ per week
Both gîtes are available for let from Saturday to Saturday. Bedding is provided. Guests have the use of our loft workspace and outdoor yoga decks in addition to our 45 acres of meadow and woodland – perfect for ball games, lazing in a hammock and exploring! There are also swings for children, a stream running through the property, and two pet donkeys.
We also have five independent guest bedrooms in addition to the gîtes. All have been recently renovated and are available for rent in addition to one or both of our gites. This can suit larger groups or families holidaying with a friend or another couple who wish to share a gîte experience but don’t necessarily want to rent two gîtes.
255€ / week or 40€ / night per bedroom
* La Bergerie is a former barn adjacent to the main property containing three en-suite bedrooms, two with a double and a single bed, and the other with four singles.
* Le Nid. Previously a laundry room at the heart of the main building, le Nid was recently converted to create two three-person bedrooms, each with a mezzanine and a shared adjoining bathroom.
Our full quota of bedrooms including gites can be rented together for residential group gatherings (workshops, seminars, courses) on a full-board or self-catering option only. See Bring a Group for details.
Fancy a fresh, home-cooked meal but don’t want to leave the comfort of Gardoussel? Local chef Julie Aviotte will serve your meal in the comfort of your dining room or outside on the terrace or garden.
Three menu options are available: traditional, vegetarian and vegan. All meals are freshly prepared by Julie using quality, locally-sourced ingredients – organic whenever possible. See 'Meals' side panel on this page for more information.
