Bob and Celia would be delighted to welcome you to La Petite Roche, a comfortable and imaginative restoration of a stone built Provencal country house,one wing of which we have created our 1-2 bedroomed gite apartment.
The atmosphere we like to create is restful and friendly. In the shady gardens and grounds, there are plenty of peaceful places to sit quietly reading, chatting over a glass of rosé under the willow tree, sitting by the pool, or even snoozing under the arch on the day bed .
The calm, beauty and magnificent varied scenery of the Drome Provençal has been acclaimed by many travel writers including the Daily Telegraph, the Sunday Times and le Figaro .There are plenty of good, local restaurants nearby to try with all commerce and supermarkets within minutes drive. The numerous Cotes de Rhone vineyards are great fun for a tasting day out. There are many historic Roman and medieval sites to visit and the local French are warm hearted and welcoming.
We are in the hidden part of old Provence, but which is conveniently situated and the airports of Avignon, Nimes, Marseille, Grenoble and Lyon are all under 2 hours drive, with the TGV stations of Valence and Avignon at 55 minutes and the A7 motorway at 15 minutes away.
The good size heated infinity pool (11x5mts) with cascade has lovely views, plenty of sun beds, a pergola and shady willow tree.
Bob and Celia Christmas have downsized from La Roche Colombe (which received exclusively 5-star reviews on Tripadvisor) but the welcome they offer at La Petite Roche is no less warm, the environment no less relaxing and pleasing to the eye, and the hospitality no less generous.
We had a very enjoyable stay in September and if you have been to stay with Bob and Celia in the past, you should have no reservations about doing so again. If you haven't yet been their guests in the lovely Drôme Provençale we highly recommend that you pay them a visit.Andrew & Vanessa Mitchell, Calverton, Buckinghamshire
