Gite in Le Vigan, Peaceful and Tranquil Location Amongst Vineyards
This gite is a fantastic and unique underground house (so it's cool in summer) but it's not dark and gloomy as you might imagine, with its South facing, sliding glass, double patio doors in each room opening onto a large private sun terrace. It is very light and airy. Built in 1975 it has all modern conveniences. Situated in a tranquil location amongst vineyards and wooded rolling hills in a valley only 3km from Le Vigan in the foothills of the Cevennes Mountains. Within 1.5 hours drive of Nimes or Montpellier airports and within a (long) days drive from the Channel Ports via the A75 Autoroute.
About the Owner
Retired ex BBC employee now making wine and welcoming guests from all over the world.
Christopher purchased this house in 2000
Why Christopher chose Le Vigan - Mont Aigoual
This is one of the most peaceful and tranquil places in France. The people are welcoming and the weather and food is wonderful. What’s not to like?
What makes this house unique
The shops in Le Vigan are just a short trip, but the gîte is far enough away to ensure privacy. One of the advantages of this property is that as most of the rooms are built into a hill it is cooler in the summer than normal properties, whilst still allowing in plenty of sunlight through the wall-to-wall patio doors in every room. Visits to our winery can be organised at any time.
