Bob and Celia would be delighted to welcome you to La Petite Roche, a comfortable and imaginative restoration of a stone built Provencal country house,one wing of which we have created our 1-2 bedroomed gite apartment. The atmosphere we like to create is restful and friendly. In the shady gardens and grounds, there are plenty of peaceful places to sit quietly reading, chatting over a glass of rosé under the willow tree, sitting by the pool, or even snoozing under the arch on the day bed . The Region The calm, beauty and magnificent varied scenery of the Drome Provençal has been acclaimed by many travel writers including the Daily Telegraph, the Sunday Times and le Figaro .There are plenty of good, local restaurants nearby to try with all commerce and supermarkets within minutes drive...Bob and Celia would be delighted to welcome you to La Petite Roche, a comfortable and imaginative restoration of a stone built Provencal country house,one wing of which we have created our 1-2 bedroomed gite apartment.

The Region The calm, beauty and magnificent varied scenery of the Drome Provençal has been acclaimed by many travel writers including the Daily Telegraph, the Sunday Times and le Figaro .There are plenty of good, local restaurants nearby to try with all commerce and supermarkets within minutes drive. The numerous Cotes de Rhone vineyards are great fun for a tasting day out. There are many historic Roman and medieval sites to visit and the local French are warm hearted and welcoming. Location: We are in the hidden part of old Provence, but which is conveniently situated and the airports of Avignon, Nimes, Marseille, Grenoble and Lyon are all under 2 hours drive, with the TGV stations of Valence and Avignon at 55 minutes and the A7 motorway at 15 minutes away. The Pool: The good size heated infinity pool (11x5mts) with cascade has lovely views, plenty of sun beds, a pergola and shady willow tree.More

A lovely place to stay for a week or two. Quiet surroundings and an excellent and comfortable gite. Perks too numerous to mention e.g massive bed, loads of coffee capsules, all you need to stay comfortably without the almost obligatory list of petty house rules....More
