IN the heart of the Gard Cevennes mountains, in the land of the “Camisards” close to Ardeche, sits this authentic 16th Century farmhouse, on the side of the hills at an altitude of 510m². It dominates a beautiful valley, covered with pine and chestnut trees, and heath bushes, at the doorstop of the Cevennes National Park. … It is impossible not to fall in love with this location and completely understandable to want to share its natural environment, stones and history. Welcome friends who will appreciate the authenticity of the kitchen, side of the hitypical of this region, as well as the comfort of spacious, carefully decorated bedrooms, the landscaped outdoor areas, the swimming pool and pool house with oven and grill. This property has belonged to a succession of lords, who were accorded the privilege of extracting gold from the surrounding mines. More than 15 hectares, with terraces cascading down the hill, the granite and limestone of their walls shining in the first rays of the sunrise. The abundant water sources which water the property continue to give the water of life all the way to the valley. The property also benefits from town water. The surrounding nature blossoms in the seasonal rhythms, delivering an “art de vivre” which appeases the pressures of daily life. It is not easy to find a panorama so diverse in colours across the seasons, and in the essences they bring, as well as the luminosity of the sky.
The Cevennes mountains offer permanent bewitchment, in the sudden anger of a storm of turbulent, black clouds or under the soft, pink rays of a Spring morning. The 470m² of living space (not including outbuildings) is guaranteed light from the courtyard area between the buildings. These buildings have been given a second life while still respecting the traditional architecture of the region. The 7 guest rooms, one of which is a double, offer great comfort in the space available. Each has a bathroom/toilet. One has a separate toilet.
As for the 3 guest house rooms, they are not at all lacking in volume and benefit from large openings, giving every room warm light. Functional, they can easily accommodate a family with several children. Their sizes are 58, 50 and 37m² for 4, 6 and 4 people respectively. The owners have a private lodging (87m²) composed of living and dining room, two bedrooms, study, bathroom and toilet. The pleasures of dining together in a family atmosphere can be enjoyed in the 45m² farmhouse inn.
The outbuildings: barn, garage, laundry, cellars offering complementary spaces for roasting chestnuts or tasting walnut wines. There is no lack of woodland. The various fireplaces enhance the buildings, offering warmth during winter evenings and the pleasures of slow cooking. The property does of course also have electric current and a telephone line. For amateur hikers and cyclists, there are numerous tracks and the proximity of a river for fishing and bathing. No sign of any nuisance. We are sure that this property will bring deep satisfaction to anyone attracted by authenticity and natural spaces and looking for a convivial atmosphere and lucrative business at the same time.
