Gîte Le Soustet
We welcome you to our restored gite located in the heart of Buis-les-Baronnies, a small village in Provence.
What we offer
We offer group accommodation, which means you will meet other people with whom you will share the room and the bathroom. Our rooms hold 2, 3 or 5 people in double, single or bunk beds.
We also have a self-contained room on the ground floor for wheelchair users and those who are not so keen on stairs!
Each bed is prepared with a fitted sheet, a pillow case, and a blanket. You will need to bring additional bedding (sleeping bag/liner) and your own towel. Alternatively, you can rent these from us.
Climbers, hikers, cyclists or tourists are welcome to stay with us for one night or more. We welcome you between 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
Our place is self-catering: we have everything you need to cook your evening meal or your breakfast in the group kitchen.
There is a supermarket at the end of the street or you can go out and eat in one of the many restaurants of the village.
You can relax in our little courtyard or in the lounge where you will find books, boardgames, and information on local activities. We ask that you vacate by 10:00am.
If you are staying more than one night, you can leave your belongings in your room. For cyclists, we have a designated bike shed.
We can accommodate up to 20 guests and our gite is non-smoking. Animals are not allowed in our gite.
