If you love France - these self-catering gites in Languedoc are in an awesome location by the magnificent Cevennes National Park - yet we are only 1.5hrs to the Mediterranean beach and within 1hr of airports and trains it is also a long weekend or mid week break location away from it all.

For a Self-Catering Holiday Rental in Languedoc France with renowned hospitality L'Elzet Gites has built a strong reputation. You could almost call it a Self-Catering Plus holiday as it makes all the difference to your holiday experience to have a host who is a great cook if you want to dine or who makes you feel completely at home. 

At L'Elzet so much of the year is a tranquil haven - an evocative setting overlooking stunning panoramic scenery, with acres of woodlands and vistas, in the foothills of one of the most stunning regions in France. 

You can be as private as you wish, or join in and socialise with everyone you will meet early in your stay. After a day's exploring or lazing by the pool, there can be fun to be had getting together and enjoying a laugh or two with good local wine, sharing a BBQ and perhaps boules. Stargazing is out of this world and seems like there are a billion star in this totally unpolluted sky. During the summer school holidays children love it here for many reasons, including the opportunity to have playmates. We do our best to match the ages of most of the children. They especially love our gorgeous donkeys and our other smaller tame pet farm animals.

Each Gite has its own corner, but it can also work really well when taking the Gites together. If so you need to plan as early as you can, due to our popularity, and many of our visitors returning.

Our Cevennes Gites are built in Cevenol Dry Stone Style, with 3ft+ thick walls that keep the heat out in the Summer and yet cosy and warm in the Winter. Both the converted chestnut drier holiday cottage and the Violon apartment have a log burner for cosy evenings after refreshing winter walks (try roasting sweet chestnut you've collected ), all have heating when needed.
