A charming and authentic, restored stone village house
The medieval village of Dions is ideally situated between Uzes and Nimes, and at the doorstep of the Cevennes Mountain Range. Generous spaces, 2 green courtyards.

The space

The house is accessed by a private street in the heart of the village. Passing through a garden courtyard, you enter 800 s.f. (75 m2) of enchanting stone-vaulted space, with modern comforts carefully complementing the rustic simplicity. There is a cozy living room with a large fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen, a generous modern bathroom, and a very large bedroom (240 s.f./22 m2) with a wood-burning stove. The bedroom opens through a gracious expanse of wood windows and a french door to a private, stone-walled courtyard. The house stays naturally cool in the summer with its massive stone walls, and has electrical heating, fireplace, and wood stove for cool evenings. The furnishings are tasteful, regional, and very comfortable.

Your hosts, who live in the house above, can point you in the direction of outdoor recreational possibilities in the Gardon River Gorge Natural Preserve (2 k), or in the Cevennes National Park (40k), as well as cultural outings to nearby stone villages, the Pont du Gard (32 k), the beautiful medieval town of Uzes (15 k), the Roman antiquities of Nimes (16k), the pilgrimage site of St. Guilhem le Desert (1 ½ hours drive), local wineries and cheese-making farms, and much more.

If you are a party of 3, we accommodate the third guest with a single bed in the living room. There is a curtain separating the bedroom and the living room.

Guest access

The entrance courtyard gives access to the exterior stair to the house and terrace above, where the hosts live. The rear courtyard, which opens from the bedroom, is private.

Interaction with guests

We live on the same site, and we enjoy sharing with our guests about the things we love in the area.

Other things to note

Your hosts, Henri and Grace, both speak English and French.

We had an absolutely lovely stay at Grace and Henri's beautiful house. In fact, it was one of our best Airbnb experiences – out of many. The house is spacious, beautifully appointed with everything one could reasonably need, including two private courtyards. Dions is a lovely petite ville situated between Uzès and Nîmes, two must-see cities in this beautiful region. This gives you the perfect opportunity to enjoy life in a quiet village while having access to all of the interests and offerings of larger cities. Grace and Henri will offer you whatever help you may need in planning your trip or learning more about the region--and if an urgent need should arise, as it did in our case, when a sudden medical need arose, Grace quickly found us an appointment for me with a doctor nearby. We will always be grateful for her help and all their many kindnesses.

Grace and Henri's place is honestly the most charming place we've stayed through airbnb. It's been done up and decorated with a sensitivity that brings the building alive. Waking up in the morning and opening your eyes to the courtyard with its well kept plants, turret and feeling of antiquity is very romantic... even more so at night when the stars are framed by the courtyard walls. Our only regret is that we didn't have more time there because we were out all day with family. We'd definitely stay again!

Grace and Henri were very helpful and kind. They really put in an effort to make our visit pleasant and joyful. The house was very cozy and beautiful. The interior was very charming and the house felt big and it had everything you could need. It was very clean and they had put in fresh flowers before our visit. Dions is very quiet and calm, and you can easily drive around and visit spectacular scenery and nature! It was really something and they were perfect hosts!

Grace et Henri greeted us warmly and helped with bags, parking, and a thorough introduction to the house, neighborhood and general area, all of which were charming. There were maps, written instructions and suggestions, guide books, some basic food supplies, and very comfortable and attractive furnishings.

The place was fantastic and grace and Henry will super accommodating and welcoming. They were readily available for everything and had lots of great suggestions and recommendations for things to do. It's a gorgeous space with all the fixings and ideally located for driving around Provence. It's a little far from a main town (around 20 min drive) in terms of heading out for dinner after a long day of touring around but that's also part of its charm especially if you want somewhere quiet and quaint.

What a wonderful trip my daughters and I had to France, in no small part, due to our stay in Dions. How relaxing and restoring it was! Grace and Henri have gone over and above in preparing their beautiful, charming cottage for guests. The décor and appointments are luxurious, with a studied eye for design and balance. Every detail has been thought out, regarding lighting, amenities and ease of use. Grace and Henri are great and interesting people too! They were so helpful with information before and during our stay, that I think we were as eager to meet them, as to see their lovely home. The quaint little town of Dions is close to the larger town of Uzes and conveniently located to anything you might need. Parking for our rental car was not an issue, either. Treat yourself to a lovely, spa-like stay. It's sure to be a highlight of your vacation!

Grace and Henri made us feel extremely welcome. They have thought of every possible detail to make their guests feel comfortable. The pictures and the description were very accurate and the unit was spacious, clean with a large, comfortable bed. It is located in a 13th century stone house is a small walled village between Nîmes and Uzès, a lovely rural town. We would definitely stay there again.
