A fun, bohemian wagon with summer kitchen, great for lazing in the sun!

Once home to Alfonso the daredevil leopard-tamer (so Nella, the owner, would have you believe!), this colourful roulotte is a hundred years old and was built in Montargis for the circus life. It's a whirl of fairy lights, vintage finds, mirrors and gorgeous Provençal quilts, postcards, prints and books, and a musical library of Gypsy jazz. A cupboard in the bedroom reveals a bright pink loo and basin closet; the gas shower is a dash outside to a hut.

Though the wagon is completely self-contained, you can easily live half inside, half out, a lifestyle perfectly suited to the south of France. There’s a light and airy outdoor kitchen a few feet away, with gas grill and a vintage zinc bar: pour some cocktails and watch the sun set over the mountain Pic St Loup in the distance. Your breakfast table, under a shady pergola, overlooks the training ring for Nella’s Lusitanien horses, and you will be really well cared for by your hosts.

This is a dreamy destination... Take it easy, or go exploring nearby: the charming town of Sommières has a great market on Saturday mornings, and the pretty medieval village of Sauve has plenty of good places to eat and little streets to wander.

Our guests say...

"Extremely much! Our hosts Nella and Andrew had prepared everything for our arrival. We felt SO welcome, as though we were old friends coming to stay! The outdoor kitchen was well equipped and very practical. The fairy-lights made the whole place look magical!"



"The roulotte looked so magical when we arrived, with fairy lights glowing and music playing inside. One of the highlights of our stay was evening drinks and nibbles with Nella outdoors under the bunting. Peaceful and perfect."
