The origin of the house date to the XII century, it has been remodelled completely and internally renovated with charm and every modern comfort. Located on the top floor is a large living room with an open fireplace in an ambiance of high standard, the large kitchen (partially with romantic paving stones) with mezzanine and terrace, a shower and separate toilet. On the ground floor (with vaulted ceilings) are three bedrooms with double beds and a bath room as well as exit to the garden. The very thick walls guarantee a recreative sleep even at extremely high outside temperatures. The house is surrounded by a shady garden with olive-and palm trees. Under an old nut tree there is a mosaic table (8 seats/ barbecue); an outside illumination provides a romantic spirit at night. The sunny covered terrace on the upper floor offers a magnificent view on the mountains, the rock face of the Herault and the southern Cevennes. The beach on the nearby sea or fresh river waters invite to a swim.
