SHORT HISTORY OF ELAÏA ET CUPIDONE GITES
Surrounded by attractive and varied landscapes, the Gites (cottages) are located at the crossroads of 3 regions: southern Ardèche, Gard Provençal and Cevennes. They are at three-quarters of an hour from the A7, an hour from the sea, half-hour from Uzes and the Gorges of Ardèche and Cévennes, a quarter of an hour from Ales, Barjac and Saint. Ambroix. Diverse recreational and cultural activities are featured.
My husband, of Savoyard origin, and myself, from Gard, are both in love with our terroir. We decided to leave the Haute Savoie to settle here. We maintain a small and beautiful grove of a hundred ancient olive trees. This is what inspired us to name the Gites: Elaïa is the Greek name for olive, and Cupidone, a beautiful local azure blue wild flower, that greets us from June to October.
This farmhouse of local stone seduced us. A great renovation adventure began in 2011. Keeping the spirit of the place, providing it with modern comfort and lots of character, while preserving our environment, a real challenge that we have not hesitated to take up!
