Hello . Jenny and I moved to Southern France some years back now, with our young family, seeking the warmth of a Mediterranean climate ,the beauty of Southern France, good wine and a more relaxed way of life amongst the nature and history of this lesser known area. We have not been disappointed and still marvel at the beauty of our surroundings, the space we have and yet all the facilities of modern life just close bye. Not that easy to find but we did and here we are over 20 years later and never saw anywhere better! It was an all or nothing move. Jenny has been a local councillor. I play in the pottery studio when I get the chance. No photo of us as we don't really come with the gite! But you'll see us around, occasionally by the pool.
Nick Moore-Morris purchased this cottage in 1991
Why this property? Well because it's close to all the facilities you may need and not up a mountain pass ! The region is stunning in its beauty, there's a super pool waiting, great local walks, plenty of attractions from caves and train rides to bamboo forests and Roman temples , beautiful markets, great wine and even river swimming It's a great place to relax and watch the stars at night. Surrounded by a beautiful natural environment in a conservation area but close to art galleries, supermarkets, restaurants and a wonderful wine growing area.It's close to this side of paradise! and offers you your own garden area as well as acres of meadow land to enjoy. Walk the medieval lane to Sauve for breakfast bread or in the evening to one of the nearby restaurants.
Beautiful meadowland surrounds you in this conservation area giving you space to breath.
Barbecue in your own garden or wander across the meadows and play a game of boule
Everyday you'll see eagles overhead. But you'll be only 3 minutes drive to supermarkets, restaurants (even closer), and genuine village markets. There's a delightful walk from your gite by gardens and river to the authentic medieval village of Sauve with its many artists and musicians.

Our family (inc 2 teenage boys) stayed at this lovely peaceful gite in the foothills of the beautiful Cevennes for 2 weeks in the school summer holidays and we all loved it. Nick and Jenny made us feel very welcome as soon as we arrived and we saw them most days around their lovely large pool where we also made friends with the other guests. Our gite was clean and had everything we needed including private garden with hammock, BBQ, and also there's fast wifi! The property has three other gites but there's plenty of privacy. Nearest supermarket is a 3 min drive or you can walk the 20 mins along the lane and river to historic Sauve where there are local shops, cafes and some good restaurants, there's also a local excellent restaurant which is only 5 mins walk. Loads to do in the surrounding area: Sauve itself is worth a good walk around with its medieval streets and strange rock formations above the town. Day trips included fantastic canoeing in the hills, Nimes with its perfectly preserved roman temple and amphitheatre, the Camargue national park with its flamingos and great beaches and the medieval walled town of Aigues-Mortes.
All in all we had a great holiday, in fact, because it was so good and with there being so much more to see and do, we're going back again this year!
