GÎTE DU CHANT DES OISEAUX
LITTLE GEM FOR 5 PERSONS IN THE HEART OF MAGICAL SAINT GUILHEM LE DÉSERT
Featuring a garden with trampoline, hammock & BBQ, this lovely holiday home for 5 persons is in the heart of historic Saint Guilhem le Désert. Situated just a few steps from the medieval Abbey of Gellone, this lovely house comes fully equipped and is newly renovated with style and sympathy to the history of this legendary village.
Set on three levels, this charming cottage will provide you with all the comforts you need for a restful stay. Wifi, coffee, linen, towels, shampoo, toiletries, dish/clothes washing liquids, are all provided free of charge. You have free parking for one car in the village car park for the duration of your stay.
The gîte has stunning views from every window and is surrounded by birdsong. There is fresh mountain spring water on tap, only a step from your door. It tastes amazing.
Relax in your private garden, with a cold glass of local rosé, and admire the ancient Abbey of Gellone. Snooze on the giant 2-person hammock. And with trampoline, basketball, archery and lots of summer games equipment, your kids will be happy all day. At night, all you shall hear is the gentle gurgling of the river Verdus, as it winds its way to join the magnificent Hérault. And the chatter and songs of birds. No cars, no traffic, no stress. The fantastic river beach at the Pont du Diable is a great place for young children to swim safely and play. And it is only 5 minutes away by free bus. A kayak through the Gorges de l'Hérault is a journey of wonder. Take a picnic with the kids and spend all day dreamily drifting along the river, soaking up the breath-taking scenery of the steep-sided gorge and cooling off in the fresh mountain water.
Most of our guests are families with children but please note that the gite does have three levels and the stairs can be challenging for older persons, persons of reduced mobility or for very young children.
