* in order to stop outside the front door to unload luggage and then to park a little closer to the house facing in the right direction beyond the ‘No Entry’ sign, please follow the directions starred (*) below. It is advisable to come back to do this after you have gained access to the house as the road takes you through the centre of the village which is quite narrow. Initially, please continue to follow the directions below:
Turn right into the village at Avenue de la Condamine (opposite the Auberge du Bon Accueil on the left hand side of the main road) and go past the boulangerie and pharmacy.
At the cross roads, go straight across and follow the road up the hill, following the signs for the village.
You will come to a junction, where the left hand turn is ‘No Entry’. Turn right and follow the road a few metres up the hill, turning immediately left in front of the old Post Office. Continue straight on to Rue de L’Horloge and there is parking on the right hand side or again turning back down the hill to the left. If there are no spaces turn right down the hill again (Avenue du Docteur Mourier) and park on the right hand side.
Park your car, leave your luggage and walk up the hill towards the village. The house is on your right hand side (No. 39), with 3 storeys, olive green shutters and an open area with gardens opposite.
Continue walking under the clock tower (for approx 100m) until you come into the main village square with the restaurant and the bistro.
You will be met in front of the Mairie in the square (Place de la Mairie) by a lady called Salima. You can contact Salima on tel no. 00 33 637 69 58 31. Please give her as much warning as possible if you are unable to make your meeting time.
*Parking beyond the ‘No Entry’ sign is now only permissible in one direction. In order to stop outside the house to drop off luggage and shopping, follow the directions below:
*At the restaurant ‘Le Bon Accueil’, instead of turning right (up Avenue de la Condamine), continue along the D936 (past the Hotel Le Sarrasin) until you see a bus stop on the right hand side. Turn right here ‘Avenue des Cevennes’. Follow the Avenue des Cevennes up the hill (at a small Y junction, keep to the left hand side) until the village centre, the Mairie is on the right hand and there is a bar and restaurant (‘Le Grenier d’Aladdin’) on the left. Follow the road down to the right hand side of the restaurant and under the clock tower. The house is 50 metres from the clock tower on the left hand side, with olive green shutters and an open space opposite.
