Les Marronniers
Provence / Gard France
Guest House / Bed and Breakfast, La Bruguiere, France

Les Marronniers has been our home since 1989, and after ten years of restoring it, we decided to open it up to a small number of paying guests. We thought about it a lot. We were wondering how we would feel with strangers in our home. 

Then we realized that Les Marronniers has always been full of visitors. The difference was they were family and friends.  So, we decided to think of our paying guests as friends coming to spend some time with us. This as worked very well, both for us and for our guests.

Our home, "Les Marronniers", is situated in a small village called La Bruguiere.  It is a charming place to walk in and around just enjoying the views and practicing your French with the locals playing Petanque in the shaded square outside the house. 

This is a "maison de maitre" (master's house), built on three levels around 1812 with an enclosed forecourt, shaded by chestnut trees, where we often dine or just sit and relax.  On the other side of the house is a good size swimming pool set in a lawn surrounded by flowering shrubs and plants.  Ample garden furniture provides poolside seating under the old fig tree

Offering a haven away from large hotels, we open our doors to only eight people, (plus an occasional houseguest or two).  There are four double rooms, each of which is decorated differently in French country style. 

All have tea and coffee making facilities; TV; video, CD and radio and private bath or shower and wc.  One room as satellite TV. We also have a good video library of English language movies.

Continental breakfast is served in the dining room or under the chestnuts in the front court: a gentle way to clear your head while planning the days activities. 

Maybe you'll want to relax by the pool or take off on a picnic on the banks of one of the many nearby rivers or perhaps visiting some of the places of historic or cultural interest.  If after a long day out you wish an evening in we can provide a meal.  Just let us know early in the morning.

The house has central heating so it's very comfortable throughout the year.  The weather for the grape harvest in autumn is usually beautiful. 

The winters are frequently sunny and mild for the truffle fairs and the spring is fresh and green for the fruit blossoms. 

These are all great days for a leisurely lunch and maybe an extra glass or two of the local wine.

We have been awarded four suns (stars) from the Association Francaise B&B France, and three keys (stars) from the Conseil General de Gard Tourisme. More importantly, many of our guests have become our friends. 

In fact our website (which we hope you will visit) was created by a guest who loved his visit with us. The real sign of happy visitors is that they come back and they do! We hope to see you soon at Les Marronniers

P.S. Our website contains more photos and all our details, plus information on Uzes and the area round Les Marronniers. http://www.lesmarronniers.biz/en/index.html


This area of Provence is wonderful for those who love to walk; cycle; paint; canoe; swim, shop or partake of the local culinary delights.  Hill villages, chateaux and vineyards cover the landscape. 

We are an hour or so away from the Camargue, the Ardeche and the Cevennes, not to mention the rest of Provence.  The mediaeval walled city of Avignon is nearby as are Orange, Nimes and Arles with their remarkably preserved Roman remains. 

Ten minutes away is the beautiful town of Uzes, an ancient Duchy much of which was built in the 15th. and 16th. Century and earlier. With its teeming sidewalk cafes, restaurants and shops, it hosts a Saturday Provencal market that must be amongst the most colorful and picturesque in Europe.
