About Us

A Moment of Respite
in the Cévenne Mountains

Are you looking for an opportunity to reconnect… to nature, to yourself, to others?  Look no further!  A stay at La Goose will allow you to take full advantage of the natural backdrop that is the Cévenne mountains, spending as much time as possible in the great outdoors.  How better to “recharge your batteries” than to re-connect with the natural world in the quiet of the French countryside.

Our property consists of more than 7 acres of fruit trees and forest, including a walking path to well-positioned benches and secluded hammocks.  Weather permitting, all meals are served outside under the grapevine-covered pergola, and walking and cycling paths abound.  Finally, in the heat of the summer, you can soak in our pool,
or better still… stroll down to the river for an all-natural dip!

Ingredients for our in-house meals are plucked (whenever possible) from our personal vegetable garden; our chickens will both keep you company in the yard, and nourish you (via their eggs).  Finally, partner with one of our donkeys for a picnic walk or hike : she’ll carry the bags so you can better enjoy the scenery.

Come and share in the
quiet splendour of the Cévennes.
We look forward to sharing
our home and town with you!
