Beautiful flat and location
We loved the flat as it had everything we required, everything worked efficiently and it was very comfortable. The outside space on the large verandah was perfect at all times of day, and it was so good to see the changing environment from dawn until dusk (and the night sky which was not subject to any light pollution) with wonderful views of the river and gorge. The wildlife on the river and along the banks was wonderful and an added bonus for us.
We had secure parking, and our arrival and departure were made very easy by our hostess Jenny who was there to meet us when we arrived, and to return our keys to when we departed. We certainly hope to return next year.
Delightful property in a beautiful environment.
Pretty and very functional apartment- Comfortable and pretty well equipped. Terrace overlooking Gardon Gorge was terrific. Perfectly situated with some good walking available from Collias. Plenty of sightseeing within a short radius and proximity to the beautiful little town of Uzes was a bonus.
Jenny, the owner, was friendly and very responsive.
We had a really lovely stay in the apartment and in the area.
Spacious and Comfortable. Small Village Charm
We rented the top and middle apartments, so are son and his family could join us. Each family had a private space; but, it was easy to coordinate shared meals and outings. We spent great days at Pont du Gard, Avignon, and Arles. Our 9 year old granddaughter enjoyed the tour of the Pont d'Arc cave drawings.
Lovely spacious apartment in stunning location
We had a fantastic week in this charming old property, which has been beautifully restored and furnished to a high standard including air condition. It was perfect for us, our two teenage children and our Labrador.
The apartment was impeccably clean, the beds were comfortable and there were plenty of seating opportunities, including the kitchen table with views of the river, another dining table plus a sofa area in the living room, as well as chair and table in the master bedroom. We never felt in each other's way.
The pool is a lovely bonus, and although sharing it with the other two apartments, we never happened to use it at the same time. At the time of our stay, there were a Danish couple below and a German family with a toddler and a dog above us. We had lovely chats and sharing the house was never an issue whatsoever.
We spent a lot of time in and around the river, which is crystal clear and only about 100m away, sunbathing, swimming, 'tomb stoning' off a cliff, canoeing down to the Pont du Gard and walking up the river through the beautiful gorges. The 'Via Ferrata' climbing along the rocks towering over the river is another thrilling outdoor activity on your door step. At the weekends, it got busy by the river but the children enjoyed that even more. It is a good idea to bring 'water shoes'.
Collias is a lovely quaint and quiet little village. We ate out about 4 times in various places or just went for a drink and can't fault any of them. We took it in turns to walk to the bakery for fresh bread and other groceries in the mornings, which I particularly enjoyed with our dog, stopping for a coffee and fresh croissant, to read a paper and watch the world go by. The safe parking opposite the house was very useful. We used our car once or twice for a shopping trip to a large supermarket just a few km away, during which time we went for a wine tasting and bought fantastic wine for a very good price at a vineyard shop along the way. We also went to Uzes nearby, Aigues-Mortes, le Grau-du-Roi and l'Espignette beach. Avignon and Nimes are other options out of many.
Jenny, the owner, is a lovely lady. She was very helpful. It was a pleasure to meet her and a joy to talk to her about all sorts of things. We can all thoroughly recommend this place and would happily return.
Great apartment with excellent terrace
We really enjoyed our stay in Collias at one of Jenny's apartments. The apartment is very spacious and is even nicer than in the photos. The bed is of a good size and the en suite has a good shower along with a washing machine. We loved the large sunny terrace which also offered plenty of shade for dining or lounging. The apartments were full during the first week of our stay but it was always possible to use the pool on our own when we wanted to. It's a good area for sight-seeing - Uzès is gorgeous and not very far away by car. There is also walking directly from the apartment, either through the village or along by the river. The boulangerie was about five minutes walk away along with a couple of shops, bars, restaurants and creperie. We'd definitely recommend this apartment! Thanks to Jenny also - an exellent hostess!
herrliche Wohnung mit Blick auf Fluss und Berge
Die Wohnung ist wie das gesamte Haus aus Naturstein gebaut und fügt sich sehr harmonisch in die naturnahe Landschaft. Sie ist sehr stilvoll eingerichtet, hell, sauber, für 2 Personen sehr großzügig angelegt und verfügt über einen wunderschönen ringsumflaufenden Balkon mit Blick auf den Fluss.
Die Lage der Wohnung lädt zu zahlreichen Ausflügen in die Region ein um die Natur zu genießen und die Kultur kennen zu lernen (z.B. Camargue, Crau, Alpilles, Pont du Gard, Arles, Avignon, Nimes).
Unbedingt erkunden sollte man auch die Ortschaft Collias und seine direkte Umgebung. In unmittelbarer Nähe zum Haus (ca. 150 m Entfernung) und sehr idyllisch direkt am Fluss gelegen, befindet sich ein Cafe-Restaurant (L'Enclos) in dem man u.a. die Abende genießen kann.
Es war ein sehr schöner Urlaub mit einer freundlichen und hilfsbereiten Gastgeberin. Aufgrund der herrlichen Wohnung und den vielen Ausflugs- und Besichtigungsmöglichkeiten ist es sehr empfehlenswert einen längeren Urlaub über wenigsten 2 Wochen einzuplanen.
The lovely old village of Collias has bar, restaurants and shops all within three minutes' walk of the house. The River Gardon and its gorges are just there, with swimming, canoeing and riverside walks, river birds, beavers and other wildlife. Beautiful medieval Uzes, the famous Pont du Gard, Nimes and Avignon are all a short drive away. Vineyards, cultural events, Provençal landscapes and medieval hilltop villages are all close at hand.
Other Activities: Canoeing, wildlife
