Our lovely ancient stone house is right next to the church in the heart of a traditional Gard village. The high walls give privacy to the sunny terraces and pool, making it the perfect place to relax into the laid-back south of France lifestyle.

El lugar

Our very old, detached spacious house is located next to the church in a small square, in the middle of a sleepy village. It is a wonderfully relaxing and comfortable place to be.

The living area is split over two floors, each floor has a large terrace, and there is a small pool. The upper floor is accessed via an external staircase, which gives a sense of privacy from the lower floor.

The lower terrace has a large table for dining, a leafy shaded area for the hotter parts of the day and pretty terrace lights for sitting out in the warm evenings. The upper terrace has a beautiful view over the church and the village rooftops.

The thick stone walls keep the living room cool in summer, and a wood burning stove keeps it cosy in the cooler months. We love to cook with the amazing local ingredients so you will find that the kitchen is well-equipped.

Disponible para huéspedes

In addition to the details listed above we have a lower ground floor space where you can safely keep bicycles. There is also a bike work stand and track pump.

We don't have a TV but there is wifi, and a small selection of DVDs if you bring a laptop. There is also an amp with speakers for your ipod/phone/tablet/laptop.

Atención a los huéspedes

Our friend Monika will greet you and show you around the house. She speaks English, French and German and will be able to give you any information you need. Then we will leave you alone!

You will be given a detailed guide to the house, the surrounding area, our favourite restaurants, local activities etc. This will include telephone numbers in case of emergency.

Depending on how long you stay, you might need to let someone in to tend to the pool - this is just a twenty minute visit.

Otros aspectos destacables

Upper floor layout.
Please note that the upper floor is accessed via an external staircase. Most guests like the privacy that this gives but it occasionally might mean a short dash up the stairs in the rain - not that it rains that often in the south of France!

Also please note that bedroom two has a door and ensuite shower/wc but can only be accessed via bedroom three. Please take a look at the floor plans in the photos to check you are happy with this.

Children.
We have listed our house as family-friendly as we regularly have children here, and there are railings and bannisters on all staircases and walls. However, there are a lot of stone steps and hard stone floors so please consider this when deciding if it is the place for you. Please also see note about the pool below.

Pool.
The layout of the house makes it impossible for us to fence the pool. It is fitted with a good quality immersion alarm that can be heard throughout the property, and you will be shown how to use it. It will be your responsibility to make sure that it is in 'watching' mode when you aren't using the pool. The pool is not heated, but the sun keeps the water at swimming temperature in the summer months. You don't want to try it outside of summer, unless you are particularly brave!

Air conditioning.
Is only installed on the ground floor, not upstairs.

We just ask you to be considerate to our neighbours as it is a small, quiet village. Everyone is easy going and friendly but this is a place for fun and relaxation, not for wild parties! Please do not choose our house if you like to make a lot of noise late into the night.

A vacation should be getting away from everything. We needed to relax and have somewhere that we could be ourselves. This place achieved that goal. It is a true house which gave us more that enough space to stretch out and relax. The welcome took every ounce of stress away, and we left a week later feeling that a vacation had truly been had. The village is spectacular, the locality beautiful and the region amazing. We couldn't have asked for more and have already had thoughts of going back.

This house in St Jean is set in the most wonderful location, central to so many interesting places. We loved the rivers nearby, the towns of Barjac, Saint Ambroix, Ales and the many vineyards in the region. We were warmly welcomed, with wine, cheese, and many other supplies. The house is spacious, comfortable and our teenagers enjoyed their 'own space' in the 2 bedrooms upstairs, with own terrace and bathroom. Because upper floor is separated/accessed by stairs on the outside, it would be more tricky for stays with younger children but it would be fine if adults stayed on the upper floor too. The neighbours are very friendly and helpful, always happy to recommend places to visit. The kitchen was well-equipped and we found the beds very comfortable. There were a few issues with the air-conditioning system and we trust that those will be sorted soon, especially for the summer months. The pool was great as we had such hot weather (at times above 40 degrees). However the water seemed to evaporate/or leak very quickly therefore the level of the water was often low and needed refilling often (which made the temperature of the water rather cold). Overall, we loved our stay in St Jean, would return again and would highly recommend staying in this property.

super emplacement! Village sympa avec des commerces de proximité de qualité: primeur, boulangerie et boucherie. Il y a de quoi se balader dans les alentours. la maison est confortable, aménagée avec gout. la piscine est agréable quand il fait chaud! A déconseiller pour des familles avec des jeunes enfants car beaucoup d'escaliers...(c'est ce qui fait par ailleurs le charme de cette maison) Hôtes prévenants: accueil très bien organisé et des voisins charmants sur place! nous avons passé 15 jours de très bonnes vacances!

Français/ English (almost!) Logement au calme, dans une petite rue d'un charmant tout petit village gardois qui a malgré tout le nécessaire pour y passer un bon moment (boulangerie et petit restaurant à 1 min à pied de la maison, supérette à 5min, café/resto/pizzeria à 5min également). House in a quiet street in a charming little village in Le Gard. St Jean de Maruejols has anyway all you need (bakery, grocery, bar, restaurant and pizzeria maximum 5 min walk) Le logement est vaste, peut à mon avis contenir 2 familles, la partie du dessus et celle du dessous sont totalement indépendantes et comportent une salle de bains pour chaque partie. The house is vast and 2 families can easily live there for a holiday. Upstairs is totally independent from downstairs. La maison est très propre, la cuisine bien équipée (saladiers,poêles,casseroles,couverts,couteaux de cuisine,mini balance,assiettes,tasses et verres divers et variés),et il y a également tout le nécessaire pour passer un séjour sans ramener sa maison (machine a laver, lave vaisselle, four, table et fer a repasser, chiffons et serviettes de bain). The house is very clean and the kitchen and the house are well eqquiped (washing machine, dish towels, dish washer, oven, iron, bath towels) Le rez de chaussée comporte une chambre climatisée et un grand salon climatisé lui aussi ainsi qu'une salle de bain. Downstairs: big air conditiened living room, bath room and air conditiened room Au premier étage,deux chambres communicantes et une salle de bain.L'étage n'est pas climatisé donc un peu plus chaud l'été mais Becky et Jon mettent à disposition un gros ventilateur bien utile. Upstairs: two communicating rooms and a bathroom, no A/C but a big fan useful in summer La piscine est également bien entretenue et avec de nombreux transats, et si l'on a un quelconque problème les voisins d'en face sont très aimables et proposent leur aide volontiers. La terrasse/coin repas est magnifique avec un "toit" naturel en feuilles,les arbres s'enlaçant dans les grilles la formant. Clean and private pool with deckchairs, and if you have problems the neighbours are very helpful. The terrace/patio is wonderful and you can have a lunch on the outside table, with a natural roof, made by the leaves of the trees enlacing the terrace. Bref, si vous cherchez des vacances au calme sans pour autant être éloignés d'autres villages/villes (en voiture Barjac à 5min, Les Vans et Uzès à 30min) et des activités (Pont d'Arc à 15min) ,n'hésitez pas, c'est parfait. Et pour les accros d'internet, il y a même une connexion Wifi! If you need a quiet holiday and you want to have a stay next to other villages and little towns (Barjac 5min, Uzès and Les Vans approx 30min by car) and activities (Pont d'Arc 15min by car) that is the place to be! And if you are an internet-addict,a Wifi connection is available! Becky et Jon sont en plus très aimables et hyper disponibles si vous avez des questions sur la maison avant votre séjour, et leur...

This was such a beautiful spot, really enjoyed the space and the pool was a treat since it was very hot while we were there (end of June). The town is incredibly beautiful and quiet but enjoyed amazing restaurants, groceries and wine that were available very close by. Thanks for having us!

Jolie maison de village! Jon et Becky ont été très réactifs à nos questions. Les petites attentions à notre arrivée ont été très sympa. Bcp de documentations sur les lieux autours du village.
