Unique Gite with Large Private Sun Terrace



Updated: 17-Oct-2016
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.

From the Owner

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.
