Perfect for cycling (road and off-road), walking, birdwatching or just relaxing in a semi-mountainous and verdant environment, Chez Billy can be found in the hamlet of Tourgueille, on the D10 road from St. André de Valborgne to Valleraugue via the Cols de L'Espinas and du Pas. St. Andre de Valborgne hosts 'essential' shops such as bakers, butchers and grocers, as well as 2 bars and 2 restaurants. The nearest supermarket is at St. Jean de Gard (28Km)

Approached by stone steps from the road, Chez Billy sits on the south side of the minor road which, as soon as it passes through the hamlet, commences its snaking ascent up through the chestnut woodland to the Col De L'Espinas (848 Metres). The cottage has a small courtyard, with outdoor dining furniture, and a small rear (south facing) garden, which is a haven for many species of butterfly. The living accomodation is on the first floor, and is reached by a small flight of steps (see picture above and left). There is a secure storage area for bikes, boots etc, in the basement, where there is also a second W.C. and washroom. Here you'll also find a portable barbecue.

There is a large, well equipped kitchen with ample storage and utensils, double sink unit, gas hob, small electric oven, microwave, washing machine, fridge, toaster and newly-installed period wood-burning range. We can arrange for home-made meals to be left in the fridge or delivered (vegetarian cooking a speciality) by prior arrangement. We live less than 3km away in case there are any queries or requests.
