Simple, cosy mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

This small gite, nestled in amongst a few other chalets, is set just up the road from one of the most beautiful Medieval villages (Evol) we've ever seen. A pop-up cafe opens over the summer months, at lunchtime, and all basic necessities can be purchased from the next town, a few km down the mountain.

The surrounding area is also well worth exploring. We particularly liked Eus, a small hilltop village, about 45 min. drive away, and the town of Villefranche de Conflent is also fascinating, with a superb castle (and pleasant restaurant) perched on the top of a very steep hill.

The accommodation is essentially an open-plan studio, with sofa bed, and an outdoor, covered area overlooking the garden and hillside.

The equipment and maintenance of the property are good.

Communication prior to arrival with the owners was excellent. They are welcoming and friendly, and sometimes use the other half of the mountain chalet, which has separate access.

An added boon is that dogs are welcome, and a mountain track leads up into the hills from right outside the door.

On revient quand?

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour au Fénil d'Evol du 7 au 16 juin 2018.

Le gite est parfaitement aménagé et a été restauré avec gout. Il est idéalement situé, à quelques centaines de mètres du magnifique village d'Evol et au bord d'un petit torrent et en pleine nature. La terrasse et le jardin permettent de profiter pleinement de cet environnement exceptionnel. Le barbecue a beaucoup servi pendant notre séjour :)

Nous avons été accueillis très chaleureusement et tout était fait pour nous accueillir de la meilleure des façons. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié les petites douceurs à notre arrivée! Merci également pour l'ensemble des conseils et informations qui nous ont permis de passer un excellent séjour!

La mise à disposition de cartes et guides de randonnées est également très appréciable. Nous avons ainsi pu profiter au mieux de cette magnifique région. La randonnée des lacs du Carlit restera dans nos mémoires un bon moment je pense! La grotte de Fontrabiouse vaut clairement le détour et nos déambulations dans les marchés auprès des producteurs locaux n'ont pas de prix.

En bref, nous sommes partis hier et tout cela nous manque déjà...

Un conseil: n'hésitez pas! Foncez!

Julie et Christophe, Lille

Voortreffelijk

  • 4 of 5

Omgeving, rust, accomodatie ... alles een 10/1O

Wel is de behuizing een beetje krap. Er is geen aparte slaapruimte. Je slaapt op een open geklapte zetel in de woonkamer. En dat blijkt op zich geen probleem maar daar schrik je wel even van als je dat niet op voorhand weet.
