We like hiking and geocaching.
From the Owner
“As a child I used to spend my summer holidays at my grand mother's in the Cevennes. The Cevennes in the Gard deeply marked me. When I wanted to buy a house it was naturally near Anduze I began looking. My wife, who didn't know the Cevennes, was instantly seduced. We particularly appreciate the calm, the natural space and the beautiful ceveno landscape.”

From the Owner
“Our house sits in the parish of St Sébastien d'Aigrefeuille, made up of 98% of forest. Yet we are only 15 minutes from the large town of Alès. In our hill it's not rare to spot deer, wild boars, squirrels, rabbits and this will delight the children. St Sebastien is on edge of the Cevennes National Park, but maintains its Mediterranean climate: it's mild and sunny a large part of the year. Really pleasant!”
