“No Ruffles at the Truffle”
Reviewed June 21, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We stayed in the Truffle gite for two weeks this month, our second visit in four years. Apart from the idyllic location, lavender fields close by, Mont Ventou in the distance, it felt like coming home. Andrew and Maggi were very welcoming, we settled in and spent much of our time relaxing in the grounds or walking in the quiet lanes around. From Chameret, historic locations are very accessible - Avignon, Orange (with its magnificent Roman theatre), Suze la Rousse (amazing fortified chateau). For Avignon, where we have always found parking difficult, there is a regular train service from Pierrelatte (less than 30 mins' drive from the Truffle). The gite itself is well-appointed, easy to settle into, hard to leave! If you go, then I suggest you also book the blue bedroom for extra space...

“A gite full of character in the heart of Drome Provencal”
Reviewed May 25, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We, together with our little dog, stayed in the Stable Gite for a week and it was the perfect base to explore the Rhone Valley vineyards and Provence. Andrew met us on arrival and he and Maggi were the perfect hosts - welcoming yet not intrusive. Andrew has knowledge about the local vineyards and gave us advice which were very much appreciated. We also enjoyed day trips to Avignon, Arles, Pont du Gard and the many vineyards in the area which are all within short driving distances.
The gite was well equipped and tidy. A welcome pack of bread, ham, cheese, milk, juice and a bottle of wine was waiting for us upon arrival. We only stayed in the blue bedroom which has a double bed, but we understand that for parties of more than 2, there is the option of using a second, more spacious bedroom (accessed off the first bedroom - fine for a family but perhaps less so for a group of friends). The bedrooms are upstairs and accessed through space saver stairs (quite steep) which took a bit of getting used to (and not suitable for dogs to get up and down).
We had a lovely stay at the Bastide and really miss all the lovely towns and villages in Provence and we hope to be able to return one day.
