French holiday cottage – Maison de Gardien

A two bedroom gatekeepers cottage with pool & private terrace

This French holiday cottage was originally the gatekeeper’s cottage and adjoins L’Arc en Ciel. Thoughtful refurbishment has transformed the premises into an exquisite French holiday cottage. Enjoy a dip in the pool (which is shared with L’Arc en Ciel) and relax on the pretty terrace.

This lovely French holiday cottage offers a well-equipped kitchen and dining area. French doors lead out onto the private terrace.

We all thought Arc & Gardien were most comfortable and very well equipped. One could not find better properties to rent and the general ambiance was enchanting. Thank you for providing us all with such excellent holiday accommodation.
