About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 bathroom, sleeps a maximum of 7

Situated in Provence -Cevennes, Montclus has just been voted one of the 'prettiest villages of France ' !

Once part of the castles' guard room, this elegant mellowed stone house has been restored with loving attention combining every comfort with all the original antique features of the past centuries.

Large and spacious salon, beautiful dining room and a brand new Provencal style fitted kitchen, the house provides all modern appliances. An outer staircase leads up to the wonderful sun terrace overlooking the river where it is possible to bask in the sun and dine under the stars at night with just the sound of the river and the nightingale in the background. A perfect family house in the summer months , it is also ideal for two couples in the winter months who enjoy the peaceful situation and the impressive log fires in the evening.

With its terraces and windows looking over the river Ceze, this property is for those who appreciate the charm, calm and beauty of a particularly privileged situation in a village where time stands still.

Ideal for family holidays or for couples who enjoy the delights of the beautiful climate all year round, the property lies in a quiet pedestrian path just 100 yards away from the lovely beach providing safe swimming for children and even canoes for hire. There is car parking very close by.

Perfectly situated for day trips; just an hours drive from Avignon and Nimes even nearer to the 'Gorges de l'Ardeche' and 'Pont du Gard', just over 1 and a half hours to Montpellier with its sandy beaches and wild horses in the Camargue. The famous market town of Uzes is at under an hours drive and its tiny streets and famous market are very popular.

Shopping: The village itself is quite tiny and unique and has just one little bar restaurant at walking distance. Shopping can be done at either of the local villages, Barjac and Goudargues, both very pretty market towns with a good choice of shops and restaurants. Daily markets can be found in the villages all around in summer with a great choice of fresh fruit, vegetables and local specialities such as cheese and wine.

Linen: With supplement.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"We stayed here for a week in March 2007 and were absolutely delighted with this magical house and the stone village it is part of. The views of the river from the terrace are stunning, and we spent many hours up there basking in the sun and loving life. The walk through the village is romantic and charming, and there are many places along the river to stroll, skip stones, and view the magnificent countryside. The kitchen is quite large and reasonably well equipped for a vacation house (although like all vacation houses, there are no sharp knives), and the dining room is castle-like. The living room has a massive fireplace and views into the town. To access the bedrooms you walk outside and up stairs, which is a lovely way to keep the bedrooms private from the main living area, and was eternally delightful, even when the mistral blew in and it grew cold. Overall, we loved this home immensely and would recommend it strongly. "

We initially booked this home from a reference received from a friend. Upon arrival, we were delighted in the setting and ample space the accommodation provided.

Tanya (who assisted with the booking) was extremely helpful and informed us of some of the attractions nearby.

Overall a beautiful setting which took our breaths away.

Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday in the countryside.
