About the property

House in Lussan, Nr. Nimes, Gard, Languedoc-Roussillon, France - Charming And Tranquil Hillside Location With Views Over Rural Landscape

It is difficult to imagine a house more charming in a setting more tranquil than one finds in this very pretty hillside situation. The hamlet, dating from the early 17th century, was once home to several families engaged in the making of silk, once a major local industry. The silkworms were reared in a spacious 'Magananerie', which on cold nights was kept warm by two corner fireplaces. Its roof removed to allow in the sun - and is now a large patio, allowing both shade and sun, just outside the kitchen door. The old fireplaces can still be used for a little warmth on chilly evenings pent 'al fresco'. It is situated just east of Lussan (restaurant, café/bar, grocer), 17km SW of the small town of Goudargues on the Cèze River, and 20km north of the Ducal town of Uzès, a labyrinth of good restaurants, markets and shops. Avignon is 55km to the south east. Beautiful views alongside peace and privacy abound in this historic and unspoilt area of southern France.
