Situated between the Ardeche and the Ceze valley, La Tourelle sits in a tiny quaint French village 30 minutes west of Avignon. If you're tempted by the thought of relaxing on the private terrace, wine in hand with the bbq cooking away, then this is just for you.

The detached stone house stands in the edge of the village in 900 square metres of private gated grounds. It has its own 10 x 4 metre pool and tranquil views out over the village and the valley. It has 2 large double bedrooms-one with en suite. The third bedroom has 2 sets of bunk beds and there is also a separate main bathroom. Downstairs is all open plan with a comfy seating area and a big table and chairs. La Tourelle was built in 2009 and benefits from bright, fresh modern interiors and a spacious fully functional kitchen.

The area itself is beautiful. For the more active there's forest and hill top walks with stunning views, caves to explore, river fishing and the Ardeche itself is famous for canoeing - it's an adventurer's paradise. There are local markets, medieval towns and villages to explore, wine tasting around the Cote du Rhone and the Pont du Gard is ideal for a day of sunbathing, swimming and picnics.

There are plenty of lovely places to eat out in the surrounding towns and the cheese platters are world class! The local wine's not bad either and extremely reasonable!

It's ideal for all; couples, groups of friends and for the families the place is fully secure. It has stair gates if needed, travel cot, security fencing around the pool and a kids play area.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

The rolling hills, the Mediterranean climate, vineyards and olive trees of the surrounding areas, remain traditional, untouched and unspoilt. The house is situated in the quaint village of Le Garn; perfectly tranquil and the ideal retreat for those looking to get away from it all. The surrounding towns offer wonderful places to explore and plenty of restaurants ranging from small cafes by the river to more elegant and formal eateries. Food in general is extremely good value and the local people are charming.

Within 15 - 30 minutes:

L'Ardeche River


St Martin d'Ardeche

Arles - boasts magnificent Roman architecture

Cotes du Rhone wineroute

Within an hour's drive:

Avignon - reknowned for its festival

Pont du Gard - Roman bridge surrounded by magnificent countryside

Les Baux de Provence - ancient fortress and medieval village

Les Cévennes

La Camargue

Le Garn

La Tourelle is ideal for both familes, couples, small groups of all ages for those seeking peace and quiet and fresh air in the nature of Provence. In a very calm situation it enjoys a central location in the village of Le Garn with magnificent views of the distant 'Cévennes'. All shopping can be done in the pretty market town of 'Pont Saint Esprit' 15 kms away, or in one of the pretty medieval villages of the River Cèze valley such as 'Goudargues' (10 kms) la 'Venise Gardoise', its canal, bordered with plane trees and choice of riverside restaurants . Canoes can be rented either on the Cèze river or on the nearby Ardèche river for those who are more experienced! There are lovely walks in the beautiful unspoilt country side and bikes and horse riding are available locally. Golf lovers have greens nearby at Uzes, Avignon & Montilemar.

Sight seeing.:

La Tourelle is an ideal base for exploring the beautiful region; Nîmes and Avignon are at just an hours drive, a little further on is the wild Camargue and the sandy beaches near Montpellier. The magnificent 'Cévennes' mountains are to the west providing wonderful walks amongst the chestnut forests. Nearer to hand are the 'Gorges de l'Ardèche', the 'Pont du Gard', and UZES Renaissance city, with its beautiful market, a real pleasure for the eyes and the 'perfumes of Provence' herbs, cheese, fruit, vegetables, olives, etc. Wine lovers will be impressed by the choice of cellars to visit; all the well known 'Côtes du Rhône' as well as discovering the local 'Vins de Pays' .

"A modern clean villa"

Very pleased with the modern clean villa, in a beautiful area of France. The villa while being modern is built to a traditional style blending in with the village. The overall layout is excellent with open plan ground floor and good size bedrooms.

"A great House in an away from it all relaxing location"

From the start we had a good feeling about La Tourelle, Rob had been exceedingly approachable and helpful through the booking process.
On arrival the house just reinforced these good feeling, its open plan lay-out with the doors opening on to the terrace make it bright and airy and meant that every meal of the day was taken outside. With the weather in the high 30c degrees the pool was clean, cool and very welcome (I've never know my wife to swim as much). The village of Le Garn is peaceful and sleepy (if you get to see the neighbors you'll get a friendly wave) and surrounding hills and woods have some great not to strenuous walking.
With a couple of reasonable size towns within 15 miles for the bulk supermarket shopping and local shops and restaurants in the adjacent villages, whilst feeling away from it all its not that far back to get the essentials.
Of course we did a bit of sightseeing, Mont Ventoux and the view from the top is a must, the drive up is not for the faint of heart. Orange was a great discovery with its side street cafes and Roman amphitheater.

All this meant that we could relax, take time out and get to know each other again, what a great family holiday,

"Quiet, relaxing family holiday in fabulous accomodation"

This was just the sort of holiday we like, quiet, undisturbed and relaxing, just spending time as a family. 'La Tourelle' was clean and modern with everything we needed. It's location was within reach of our favourite activities and places in the Gard region - canoeing, river beaches, Goudargues, Uzes to name a few. We love this region and certainly hope to return in the future, we would highly recommend it to anyone.

"Wonderful Family house in a beautiful location"

This holiday could have been stressful taking our 5 week old baby but when we arrived it couldn't have been more relaxing. The house is very spacious, light and cool. We are a family of 5 and went with a friend and his daughter too, which didn't cause any problems with numbers at all. The village is very picturesque with lovely walks and a short drive to the nearest town for shops and restaurants. If you like kayaking like my husband the Ardeche is a must, it is so beautiful with plenty of river beaches. The children loved playing in the swimming pool even into the night!! I would definitely recommend this holiday accommodation to anyone.
