The Gardens & Grounds
If your booking is in July or August, access to certain parts of the main garden are restricted. This is to ensure your privacy and that of the guests staying in L'Enclos, the main house. Guests staying in Lo Gorro have exclusive use of the Lower Garden, which lies directly below the gite, with the river running along its full length. In the Lower Garden there is a table tennis table and badminton. For those wishing to play boules, the village square has a large area for this which is very popular with the locals! There is also a very good village tennis court only two minutes walk from the gite which is free to use. Tennis rackets and balls are available if you wish to play! For younger visitors, there are some swings and a slide.
If your booking is not in the peak Summer months of July and August, you will have access to all the gardens at L'Enclos, with the exception of the swimming pool in the main garden, which is reserved for guests staying in Lou Mitan.
Access and Parking
If your booking is in July or August, access to the gite will be via the gate in the corner of the village square. We will meet you on arrival, and you will be able to drive your car up to the gite for unloading. During your stay we ask you to park in the village square where there is ample parking.
If your booking is outside the peak summer months of July and August, you will be able to access the gite via the main driveway from the village. We will meet you on arrival, and you will be able to drive right up to the gite for unloading. There are parking spaces nearby within the grounds to park during your stay.
