L'Hirondelle and Les Figuiers are two spacious apartments in a beautiful restored stone village house in the heart of the charming medieval village of Vezenobres. Vezenobres is perched on the side of a hill overlooking the beautiful surrounding countryside. The house occupies an elevated position in the village and an open south-facing aspect, offering unrivalled views of the surrounding area. A walk to the top of the village brings you to the Table D'Orientation, where on a clear day there are panoramic views stretching over 100km, with the Mediterranean to the south, the Cevennes to the west and Mont Ventoux in Provence to the east.

Within easy reach of the vast sandy beaches of the Mediterranean, the vineyards of the Côtes du Rhone, the cultural sites of historic significance such as Avignon and the Pont du Gard, and the cosmopolitan towns of Montpellier, Nimes and Uzes, it is an ideal holiday rental in the South of France for a romantic break or for simply exploring this delightful area.

Vézénobres itself is a fabulous medieval village which has all amenities such as a small supermarket, restaurant, bar/bistro, créperie, boulangerie, tabac, post office  and is a short drive away from many excellent restaurants. Locally the bustling little town of Anduze with its lovely street cafés and market (night markets in July/August) is also the base of the little mountain steam train (Le Train à Vapeur des Cevennes) and the amazing asian bamboo botanical gardens (La Bambouseraie de Prafrance). A short drive away is the fabulous town of Uzès with its famous Saturday morning market.

To learn a little more about the Gard ...

A playground of both culture and fun:

From the Mont Aigoual, the highest point in the Cevennes, to the fine sands of the Mediterranean, without forgetting the famous Pont du Gard, the Gard offers a wide range of breathtaking sites and a varied and beautiful choice of heritage, witness to 2,000 years of history and one of the main birthplaces of Roman civilisation.

Activities and attractions available for everyone: whether you are looking for leisurely family entertainment lazing the day away on the long sandy beaches by the Med or in one of the numerous fun parks such as La Bouscarrasse or Espace Grand Bleu Water Parks near Uzès and La Grande Motte, or if you are more inclined to delve into the area’s rich cultural background, there is something to be found.

Gastronomic delights and endless wine tasting:

A visit to the region would not be complete without visiting one of the many markets where pallets of local produce are displayed in glorious multicolour with aromas to entice, whilst the numerous fabulous restaurants also make use of the many Specialities of the Region on their menus such as:The Picholine Olive; Uzès Honey;The 'Pelardon' is the traditional goat's cheese of the Cevennes; The Uzège Truffle; Asparagus; Figs; Chestnuts; Camargue Rice; Shellfish. Dishes such as 'Boeuf à la Gardianne' and 'Brandade du Morue' should be tried and savoured!

Wine: Being a part of the largest wine producing regions in France means that there is a wealth of expertise to be drawn on. Visit the numerous 'caves cooperatives' and private cellars and taste the various appellations such as St Gervais, Chusclan, Laudun, Pic St Loup and Regional Côtes du Rhône, Costières de Nimes and Tavel Rosé

From sports enthusiast to culture vulture: Both the climate and the landscape lend themselves to an outdoor lifestyle in this part of South France. With the sea, rivers, mountains and endless rolling countryside never more than a short drive away and consistent sunshine throughout the spring and summer months, it is like a playground for the outdoor enthusiast.

Enjoy activities such as: cycling and mountain biking, walking and hiking, horse riding and pony trekking, water based activities such as sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and kayaking; climbing and caving, golf, fishing, skiing and snow sports and airborne activities such as parachuting, ballooning and micro lighting.

Historical Gard: history has left its mark on the area where examples of culture - wander in and wonder at the towns and cities of historical significance in the area such as Nimes, Uzès, Montpellier, Arles, and Avignon and the smaller delightful mediaeval towns of Vézénobres, Aigues Mortes, La Roque-sur-Cèze and St Guilhem-le-Désert (Hérault).

There are a number of 9 and 18 hole golf courses around Nimes, Uzès and Montpellier.

Golf de Nimes Campagne Route de St. Gilles. - 18 holes, 6135m Par 72.

About Julie Aldred

We share our lives between the UK and this sunny and special corner of France. We first purchased a property in the Gard in 2003 and were overwhelmed by the variety the area has to offer. Here, we can indulge our love of food and wine with the fabulous gastronomic restaurants, the fresh market produce and endless wine domaines. We can sail on the Med, walk or ski in the Cevennes (or the Alps a little further away), cycle around the vineyards and visit the pretty historic villages or the rich cultural sites closeby, such as Nimes, Uzès, Le Pont du Gard, Avignon, Montpellier and Arles.

Julie Aldred purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Julie Aldred chose Vezenobres

The village of Vézénobres is credited with being a 'Village de Caractère' and 'Un des Plus Beaux Villages du Gard' and it is difficult not to instantly fall in love with the place. The house on Rue de L'Horloge was a 'coup de coeur' as soon as we saw it. A stunning 3 storey stone house close to the village centre, a short stroll away from the square with the fabulous restaurant, a lovely bar/bistro and the boulangerie. The 2 apartments 'L'Hirondelle' (for 2 people) and 'Les Figuiers' (for 2-4 people) retain all the character of an older stone property, whilst offering comfortable and well-equipped accommodation in a perfect location to explore all the area has to offer. There are stunning views from each apartment and the shared splash pool and rear terrace (and the private balcony in L'Hirondelle) are ideal for cooling off and putting your feet up with a nice glass of chilled rosé!

What makes this apartment unique

An ideal location for exploring the many and varied sites and activities - from the the rich cultural cities of Nimes, Avignon and Arles, the Côtes du Rhône and Provence to the East, Montpellier, the Cevennes mountains and luscious Pic Saint Loup wine region to the West and the beaches of the Med and the Camargue to the South.

Vézénobres is a unique medieval village perched on a hillside, proudly overlooking the stunning surroundings. There can be fewer places which allow the visitor the chance to absorb the french lifestyle in such a fabulous location.

'L'Hirondelle' and 'Les Figuiers' are located on Rue de L'Horloge - a short stroll away from the village square.

The splash pool and rear terrace and the stunning views from the front windows are rare in a village property.

The property has excellent reviews and attracts guests back time after time.

Guestbook comments from the manager

It says something about Vézénobres and L’Hirondelle that we could have stayed here all week and had a really enjoyable, relaxing holiday. At night in particular, wandering around the village, it felt like we’d wandered onto a film set. But of course we did explore and will be back to explore again. You’ve made the place a home from home.

What a fantastic find.

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic place and find. We have wanted to visit the South of France for some time. The apartment was in a brilliant location with plenty to see and do. We left with so much still to see which means another visit. The apartment was well equipped with spectacular views though it was possible to eat in the local village which was also of great interest. We have some brilliant memories of a fantastic holiday. Thank you so much.

Superb venue

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is well-appointed and equipped. It is equipped with good-quality furniture and fittings and provides spacious accommodation. It is well-maintained and kept very clean.

Particularly pleasing features include the top-floor terrace which offers stunning views over the surrounding countryside. This terrace catches the sun for most of the day. The other, shared rear terrace with splash pool provides a good opportunity to cool off but remember - it is a splash pool so don't expect to swim lengths.

Help provided by the owners and the couple who maintain the property is first-rate.

You need to be fairly fit physically to stay in Vézénobres. It's a steep hill up to the apartment and there are lots of steps once you get off the road. But provided you can manage the hill and the steps it's well worth the effort!

There are a few restaurants within walking distance of the apartment. A car is essential for travelling round the area and it's also desirable if you want a more extensive choice of eating out.

In summary, Vézénobres is an excellent base for exploring what is a really interesting region, with lots to see, and l'Hirondelle provides a lovely, comfortable base within the village.
