The house is situated on the outskirts of St. Andre de Majencoules in the Mediterranean part of the Cevennes. It has a cozy feeling and is decorated with many original features. The house has no garden, but there is a half covered courtyard, which can bring welcome relief from the Summers sun. If you want to sit under the trees, the park around the "castle", about 200 meters away, will offer a good alternative. You can take beautiful walks in the immediate vicinity. A leaflet with marked trails is located in the house. Within 10 and 15 km.there are towns with lovely French markets and flea markets. A visit to Nimes and Montpellier is very worthwhile. You can swim in the river (Hérault), 15 min walking distance and during July and August in the swimming pool in the village. The Mediterranean is about an hours drive away.

The Herault offers excellent opportunities for canoeing.

In the cafe in the village they sell a small selection of food and fresh bread every morning. In the summer they also sell vegetables like courgettes, tomatoes, onions, etc. Supermarket (and laundry) approximately 10 km away.

Ganges and Le Vigan are villages  in close proximity with lively weekly markets,
Ganges on Fridays and in Le Vigan on Saturdays.

The market in Valleraugue, on Wednesday mornings, is also a  lot of fun in high season.

In general, the markets close at around 12 noon!

Restaurants are in abundance nearby and in all price ranges.

For wine lovers there are many caves in the vicinity you can visit.

See maps and the especially the section!

The house is tastefully decorated with original French details, such as iron beds, Cevenol dining table with farmhouse chairs, French patio chairs and small antique collection.

Comfort however is not forgotten. In the seating area you will find a nice couch to sit(lie) and read on! In the master bedroom there is a cot and a highchair available. The stairs to the kitchen can be protected with an approved gate.


There is a radio / cd player with some CDs. There is also a DVD player. (It is not possible to watch TV.) DVDs can be borrowed from us.

The house is south facing and very sunny. At the back is a half covered courtyard with table and chairs, barbecue and a small sink with tap. Lovely to sit and read or eat, even if it rains.

For a picnic elsewhere, eg in the castle, there is a picnic basket for 4-persons at the ready.
