“Wonderful Gite with most helpful owners”
Reviewed September 21, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Beautiful.modern Gite with all mod cons. The hosts, Jane and Merv could not be more helpful. The village is sleepy and peaceful - and whilst we were there, the air was full f the delicious smell of wine fermenting! There is much to see the surrounding area and the walking is fantastic! Buy your wine in nearby Roquebrun - and get the most fantastic artisan ice cream/sorbet there too!
The village bar Noona is also highy recommended. Simple, but highly pleasurable and gives you a real taste of the area,

“Fantastic Gite”
Reviewed August 25, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have just returned from our holiday at Gite Magnolia and I strongly recommend it. The garden area and pool is beautiful and the Gite is very lovely. Jane was very helpful and accommodating. We have two little girls who absolutely loved playing in the pool all day long. As a family we were really able to relax. The surrounding area is stunning and we intend to discover it more as it is very picturesque. A wonderful holiday. Thank you Jane x

Just returned from a 2 week holiday at gite magnolia. It was a beautiful gite with everything you needed. The village had a lovely little bakers where we bought fresh bread every morning. Jane made us so welcome would definitely return for another visit.

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed May 16, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This is a lovely gite in a wonderful location. The facilities were excellent with the gite having everything needed for a self catering holiday. The option of a 3/4 course meal provided by the hosts was also very nice.
The pool was well used by us, and was a lovely size to swim in.
The cycling was great, and was a nice way of exploring the area on traffic free roads.
In all Gite Magnolia is a great place to stay with excellent facilities and top notch hospitality. We can't recommend it enough!

“Lovely welcoming hosts”
Reviewed October 24, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Merv and Jane are wonderful hosts, cooking for us on two occasions and providing daily morning croissants and baguette.

This is a comfortable and very well priced gite. One double room suitable for a couple, though if you're very tall you might find the bed a tad short (this is quite normal in France I think). Generous twin room for children, and a well stocked kitchen. Smart, clean bathroom. Living area is on the small side but then if you go in summer you'll be outside by the pool anyway. The magnolia tree is magnificent. I didn't go into the pool but it is a good size, ideal for messing around or for a few lengths.

Merv is an expert walking guide. This was my second trip with him, having come across him when he was tour guide on an Explore holiday in Italy I went on in 2011. This time I went independently - much cheaper - and he saw to our every need, taking us to mountain walks we could never have found on our own, as well as trips to Saint Chinian market and a cave for wine tasting. He also provided pick up and drop off from the airport. Jane is a great cook!

The village itself is typically rural and very quiet. The bar (5 min walk from gite) does an excellent and very well priced plat du jour. No boulangerie or butcher but there is a Depot du Pain, so you can get your daily fix.

Ideal for a quiet break.

“Easily the best Gite yet!”
Reviewed September 12, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This couldn't have been a more perfect holiday location. Other reviewers have pretty much covered it all e.g fantastic hosts , gite , environs , pool , weather etc etc etc
With our 12 year old daughter and a 14 year old son with us there were also plenty of things to do within easy distance - great go-karting , bicycle hire ( even an old railway line to cycle along if hills aren't your thing ) , canoe-ing down the lovely Orb river ( we were lucky that the hyro-electric guys upstream had let some extra water down on our day so the rapids really were rapid! )
Les Gorges d'Heric are great for a fairly gentle wander through or a much more energetic climb up the side to amazing views.
This was the 5th year in a row we've been to the South of France staying in Gites each time , and this was by far the best in all respects. Can't wait to return to do the same and other things we didn't get round to doing ( including downhill scootering through woods which looks great! )
Might even get a smile out of the lady in the bread shop next-time ... that'll probably be our funniest challenge!
