Perfect place for a relaxing holiday
This a beautifully restored gite, equipped with everything you need for a restoring holiday. Well equipped kitchen , comfortable beds, tastefully decorated, a terrace for outside dining with a view across the town and a secluded pool. Colin and Jill were the perfect hosts, welcoming and informative about the locality. If you like walking, climbing and swimming in rivers you'll find plenty to do in the locality. (Just watch out for the speed traps on the D104.)
Rustic and full of character
Les Monedes is a beautiful place to spend some time. We stayed in the larger gite with our two boys and would love to go back. The apartment has a large terrace for dining with a lovely view across the valley. Beds comfortable and kitchen very well equipped. A short walk through a lovely garden takes you to a secluded and good size pool. Jill and Colin are fantastic hosts, staying out of the way so you feel the place is yours but there to help you with anything you might need. The area is between the Cevennes and the Ardeche gorge with plenty of places to explore, river swimming, canoeing and great walks. Thoroughly recommended.
Thank you for your kind comments. It's always good to hear that our guests have enjoyed their stay. It was nice meeting you all and maybe you will visit us again sometime.
A flavour of old France with modern amenities
This was our fourth visit in over twenty years. It has been some time since our last stay, but when we arrived, the quiet and peaceful ambience brought back many happy memories of our previous visits. As Jill and Colin are on site, their helpful advice and experience is readily available to smooth the transition from work to holiday.
Whether your interests are just lazing by the pool, exploring historic sites or more energetic pastimes on foot or cycle, there is plenty to see and do in the locale.
Many of our friends and relatives have stayed here over the years and the fact that we keep coming back is testament to the quality of the accommodation and the friendliness of the owners.
Sixteen years later
We first visited Colin and Jill when our son was just six months old and we both liked the area and the local sights... which led us to return, albeit 16 years later! The wait was worth it: the pool was enjoyed by both our children (now 16 and 13) and the continual days of sunshine made for a great couple of weeks. We found that there wasn't time enough to do everything: it's an ideal site for peace and quiet yet within a stone's through is plenty of activity; whilst a ride of half an hour opens up all sorts of options. Colin and Jill were as charming as ever and extremely helpful: nothing was too much bother for them and they have an encyclopaedic knowledge of the region, and are always able to advise. In short, comfortable, rural accommodation with all the modern trappings, such as Wi-Fi. We'll be back...

Cosy and comfortable apartment
cosy, comfortable and clean. peaceful setting but only a short walk away from the village. Colin and Gill were friendly and helpful and always there to help, but never invasive.
We had a lovely holiday and would definitely recommend it to friends and family. Great restaurants nearby, medieval villages, vineyards, good walks and great cycling for if and when you became bored with the pool and pretty gardens
Thank you for your review of the time you spent here. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your holiday.
We have stayed in the large appartment twice (in 2007 and 2010) and the small appartment once (in 2009). This gite is probably the best one we have stayed in in France. The area is stunningly beautiful and there are not many tourists locally. We have invariably found the holiday relaxing and the gites are good for adults and children of all ages. It is my teenage daughters' favourite villa (the wifi helps here but they also love the pool) as well as the adults too! The main benefits are the facilities and stunning views but also Jill and Colin. I am always somewhat reticent about staying in a villa where the owners live on site as overattentiveness can prevent a relaxing holiday. It is a fine balance between that and not being available when there are questions. Jill and Colin strike that fine balance perfectly and they are one of the main reasons that this is the only gite we regularly return to in France.
My partner has added: The apartment is very comfortable, clean and well equipped with plenty of space for everyone. We enjoyed many meals (and drinks!) on the large terrace from which there is a fabulous view of the village and hills. We also enjoyed many hours in and beside the lovely pool and felt very ‘at home’. Jill and Colin are extremely welcoming and helpful and we have recommended the apartments to friends. The location is great with a number of restaurants, bars and shops nearby.
