Gauthier Vandendriessche, the owner of this charming nine-bedroom converted farmhouse in the South of France has personally compiled a set of beautifully bound guides for guests showcasing the most idyllic places to walk, run or cycles in the local French countryside. From gentle strolls across the Duché d’Uzès vineyard, visits to the viewing point of the magnificent Mount Lozère mountain range and the ruins of Baron Castle; there is undoubtedly something in Gauthier’s Guides to suit everyone. In addition, the various ‘Wine and Cycle’ tours offer guests a real glimpse into the Provencal lifestyle as they ride around renowned vineyards and wineries across the local area.
