We were looking for a place that would suit four adults and three kids and this was pretty much perfect. A pool with stunning views, close to an outdoor kitchen – which we used for lunch and dinner almost every day, and a river at the bottom of the garden gave us all of the nature and facilities we wanted. Plus we were well positioned to explore the local gorges, mountains, rivers and caves. Bruno and his wife are lovely souls and added to the peace of the place. Definitely recommended.

We had a wonderful time at Les Asphodeles. The directions given by Jocelyne and Bruno were very useful and we easily found the Villa. J&B made us feel at home and were ready to fulfill any of our requests, where possible. Quiet surroundings, incredible garden, cozy villa. The villa was very comfortable, roomy and clean. The rooms were spacious and the beds comfortable. The kitchen was very complete and spacious as well. We were a group of 8 people and truly felt we had more than enough space and privacy. Now, the outdoor kitchen and veranda, adjacent to the pool, were just fantastic. We could prepare and eat our lunches there and stay for hours enjoying the garden, the pool, the river. J& B made sure there were lounge chairs, hammocks, and anything we needed to relax and enjoy the sun. We recommend buying fresh trout about a mile away from Les Asphodeles and cooking them on the gas hot plate by the outdoor kitchen. Those were the best!! We also recommend renting bikes. You can explore the surroundings and see beautiful nature that way. There is a lot to see around Gornies so we could combine restful days at the Asphodeles with day trips to visit the surroundings. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it. Thank you Jocelyne & Bruno!
