About the property

House in Bez-et-Esparon, Le Vigan, Gard, Languedoc-Roussillon, France - Located In A Quiet Hamlet, Ideal For Those Wanting To Relax Or Explore The Languedoc

Rustic four bedroom house with large garden and two outdoor terraces set in the hills on the edge of a small village, 10 minutes from the local market town. Beautiful views into the mountains and down the valley. The bedrooms are all light and airy, and the sitting room has direct access to the garden. One terrace has the morning sun, and the other the afternoon and evening light. The garden has olive and cherry trees, and extends some way from the house itself. The house is located within the boundaries of the Cevennes National Park, near the natural attractions of the Cirque de Navacelles and Mont Aigoual, approximately an hour and a half's drive from both Montpellier and Nîmes. The area is ideal for those looking for a relaxing holiday in one of the less touristy parts of the south of France, or for those wanting something slightly more active, with tennis courts and cycle paths a short distance from the house, and many long distance walking routes making their way through the mountains around it. The surrounding hills are full of wild boar, and the area is well known for its honey and chestnuts. In summer, the local town has a range of exhibitions and performances, and the usual Saturday market doubles in size.

Cadre magnifique. C'est ce qu'on attend d'un séjour dans les Cévennes. Terrasse très agréable. Hôte particulièrement attentionné et réactif.

Maison rustique de charme, agréables extérieurs!

  • 4 of 5

Agréable maison (trés) rustique avec de très beaux extérieurs.

Une belle cheminée permettant de se réchauffer au coin du feu.

Richard, notre hôte a été très réactif pour chacune de nos questions et également très arrangeant.

Prachtig stijlvol huis in geweldig mooie omgeving

  • 4 of 5

Samen met 4 vrienden hebben we de woning gedurende een week gebruikt als uitvalbasis voor een aantal fietstochten (race fiets).

Omliggende Cevennes waren ruiger dan vooraf ingeschat, waardoor fietsen soms erg pittig was. Op de laatste dag hebben we de Mont Aigoual beklommen.

De eigenaar (Richard) was zorgzaam (welkomst cadeautje / mailwisselingen). Omdat we in het schemer aankwamen was het even een zoektocht om het cijferslot te openen en om te ontdekken dat er twee sleutels nodig waren om de huisdeur te openen. Vervolgens konden we het ruime huis betrekken. Nadat we de koffers hadden uitgepakt bedachten we dat we de keuken nog niet waren tegengekomen. Die bleek zich achter een van de deuren te bevinden, die we nog niet hadden geopend.

De woning is bijzonder ruim, zodat een ieder van ons meer dan voldoende privacy had. In de keuken was alles voorhanden, als je maar lang genoeg zocht. Met een ligbad en een kleine douche was ook het sanitair voldoende. De douche is wat ons betreft voor verbetering vatbaar. Gelukkig hadden we heel goed weer en konden we veel gebruik maken van beide prachtige terrassen.

Met veel plezier denken we terug aan deze week.

Maison typique dans un bel endroit calme. Richard est un hôte attentif et prévenant

  • 4 of 5

La maison est rustique mais dans un site exceptionnel avec un beau jardin aux multiples recoins pour s'isoler et on ne se lasse pas de la vue. Deux terrasses permettent d'en profiter pleinement en fonction du moment. Dans la maison, spacieuse, il faut signaler les sanitaires à l'étage uniquement. J'ai apprécié la communication avec Richard d'autant que nous avons dû faire face à un problème technique imprévu et malgré cela nous gardons un très beau souvenir de la maison et de l'endroit idéal pour qui aime la nature et la marche et les villages typiques...
