L'Eau Salée's second gîte gets its name from the giant elephant-shaped children's playhouse in its private gardens. With 5 bedrooms, plus 3 lounge / sitting rooms equipped with convertible bed settees and a spare bed, up to 12 guests can be lodged. It is completely separate from the 'Tilleul' gîte, with independent gardens and entrances. It comprises rooms in the original building dating back to 1783 with 'cool' rooms dug into the rock, ideal for those Provençal summers. Other rooms are located in the modern extension, a former restaurant built in 1968. The private gardens and terraces are located to the east and south of the gîte.

As well as the equipped ground floor kitchen, there is a kitchenette on the first floor. It is quite possible for 2 families to share this gîte and be relatively independent of each other, with its separate entrances, 2 kitchens, 3 lounge / sitting rooms.
