Ribaute-les-Tavernes House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Stone House With It's Own Garden and private Pool

This boutique style, 2 bedroom, character house with its own private pool and garden in a typical village of the south of France is a gorgeous place to stay. The house was renovated between 2007 and 2010, in keeping with the cevenol style and decorated with modern french furniture in a design but understated style. The house is fully open plan. On the ground floor, the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need such as toaster, coffee machine, juicer, picnic basket, dishwasher and we have added little details for gourmets such as a seafood platter, snail dishes and champagne glasses. Next door, with its cevenol ceilings and wooden beams, the dining room is perfect for having breakfast looking out onto the garden and the pool. You also have a wc and shower room, with quirky stone walls and antique mirror, on the ground floor. Next floor up, you have the twin bedroom, with shutters as bed heads and fitted wardrobes with antique closet doors; it has a very romantic feel. The lounge and tv room is next door and is spacious, great for a night in watching videos from the video library or listening to jazz or reading a good book. You also have wifi access in case you need to check your emails whilst away! On the top floor, you have the master bedroom and ensuite bathroom. The room is very spacious with very high ceilings and wood beams, it has a ceiling fan in the master room for the hot summer nights. The bathroom has a free-standing bath tub in the middle of it and a walk-in shower, very chic and indulgent!

You access the garden through the dining room, walking down the garden steps. There you will find the garden table, chairs and parasol where you hopefully will spend most of your meals gazing at the landscape. You have an area where you can sit and read a book under the bay tree shade, or sun lounge with a nice refreshing drink. And if you fancy a dip in the water, you have an 8x4m pool to enjoy at your heart’s content. The village has a fun, pitch and put, 6 hole golf course and a great wine producer, a pizza man and you can buy organic food at one of the neighbor's houses. 5 minutes stroll, across the fields below the house you have the river gardon with all its wonderful flora and fauna. An evening stroll around the village is a delight too, perhaps taking in a game of petanque or visiting the children’s playground in the heart of the village.

About Veruschka and Simon Bragg

-

Veruschka and Simon Bragg purchased this house in 2010

Why Veruschka and Simon Bragg chose Ribaute-les-Tavernes

We were looking for a relaxed place to have family holidays in the South of France, a bit 'off the beaten track', where our newborn daughter would be safe to wander around and there would enough things for her to do as she grew up; that plus a place with the highest % of sunny days in France...... We fell in love with this house. It's a traditional, stone, 16th Century, village house which has been fully renovated whilst keeping its local charm both inside and out. Some modern touches have been added, to give it a bit more wow factor. It is quite unique in that even though you are in a village, when you are sitting on the terrace or by the pool, you really feel like you are in the middle of the countryside. It's very peaceful and you do get some spectacular sunsets. The surrounding area itself is gorgeous with the Cévennes mountains visible from the village (a great backdrop to the petanque pitch). The Languedoc-Roussillon is very much like Provence. The village is very charming, with very narrow streets (be careful with your TomTom!) and surrounded by vineyards, hill top villages and farmland. Every year they have a festival with bulls running through the village. Everything you could possibly need is within a 10 minute drive. Anduze, is the more bohemian town to the west, and Ales, a larger city, has all the larger shops and hypermarkets. The house is a few minutes away from river swimming, canoeing and has the Unesco Site of the Cévennes park on its doorsteps. Lots of brave cyclists head to the area. Further afield (but less than an hour away): Uzes - a beautiful medieval town, Nimes, Montpellier and the wildest beach in France, la plage de l'Espiguette, at about an hour away. Last but not least, a couple of minutes by car you have a local golf course, but if you fancy the real thing, you have 5 golf courses within one hour's drive.

What makes this house unique

The house is in a great location; it is near enough to everything and has so many activities on its doorstep that it appeals to all ages.

It is very near the Cévennes mountains and you will discover a very special and unspoilt part of France.

We are very fond of it and never tire of doing something new each time we visit. We hope you do too!

A dream.....

  • 5 of 5
We have had a great time at Numero Vingt. The house is decorated with so much love and taste, it is to be found in each and every detail.

The owner has offered us not only a holiday home, he has created an environment where body and soul can find relaxation.

Also we would like to highlight that the housekeepers were very nice and helpful.

We had a fantastic time in No. 20 and we have already started to recommend it.

Country Living in Style

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Numero 20. Coming from Canada where everything is new, it was very exciting for us to stay in a 16th century stone house. It has been lovingly restored and has all the amenities required for a first class vacation. We basked in the sunshine and lounged by the pool, ate beautiful fresh-from-the-market dinners in the garden, and slept peacefully at night in our cozy beds.

Ribaute les Tavernes is situated perfectly for exploring the surrounding medieval history, indulging in the regional wines, and sampling the sun-kissed fruits and vegetables. The locals were very friendly giving us "small cadeaus" at the market when they learned we were from Canada, and providing us with lots of advice on what to see. We found a parcours park 10 minutes away (Forest Park) that our 11 and 14 year old sons loved. The pizza from the village vendor was delicious and the figs purchased from a roadside stand were the sweetest figs we have ever tasted. One day, we drove the scenic and windy Corniches des Cevennes visiting Florac and St. Enimie and canoed on the Gorges du Tarn. Another day, we visited Nimes, swam in the Gordon under the Pont du Gard, and visited Uzes (the Haribo candy factory was our sons' highlite.) We felt that we had a good balance of exploring and relaxing during our week long stay. The only downside was that one week was not nearly enough. We were very sad to leave.

Verushka was a pleasure to deal with. She was incredibly helpful to me during the early stages of planning our three week trip to France. There were absolutely no hiccups and I felt that the entire rental process was executed very professionally. Veruschka and Simon have compiled an extensive portfolio of helpful information that we accessed regularly during our stay. We also enjoyed using the provided baskets for market shopping and picnics. Really, the owners have thought of everything down to the last detail.

I highly recommend this property. Staying at Numero 20 was the highlite of our trip to France!

Gorgeous house in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5
We recently went here on holiday with my husband and 2 year old son. I must say the house is gorgeous, it is finished to such a high standard in such a lovely style. It had everything we needed and more plus it was very clean and tidy when we arrived.
There's plenty to do exploring the local area, markets, steam train rides and the bamboo gardens were all very beautiful and enjoyed by all the family. Everything is very well explained in the welcome guide at the house, with suggestions of things to do and places to go.
The village is very sweet, picturesque, friendly and quiet. We were so lucky to have amazing weather and took full advantage of the garden and pool which was a real treat. It was lovely to be able to just sit and relax in the peace and quiet while our son played in the garden and then cook a BBQ every night for dinner.
A real plus was having a great forest close to the house literally a few minutes out of the back gate. My husband and son went out most evening before dinner mucking about down by the river and finding all sorts of wildlife.
We would love to go back as my husband is itching to cycle up some of the nearby hills and mountains!

Stunning house in Languedoc

  • 5 of 5
We visited in April 2012 and my husband, two daughters (4 & 6) and I spent a week exploring the area. The house was really as beautiful as it looks - stylish, full of character, light, airy and very comfortable. The bedrooms in particular are very spacious - an unbelievable master bedroom & bathroom, and the kitchen was incredibly well fitted and equipped. The unspoilt village location is very peaceful and pretty, with lovely walks straight from the door down to the nearby river. We had many enjoyable days out within easy driving distance - including the nearby Vezenobres for fantastic lunch/walk, the market day at Uzes - a stunning French market, Nimes amphitheatre/shopping, and the children's favourite, a steam train trip into the beautiful Cevennes mountains. We would love to go back especially in the summer when we could take full advantage of the swimming pool.

The house is in the Gard region and very close to the Cévennes national park (Unesco World Heritage Site) with its beautiful wildlife, spectacular walking and mountain scenery; also very close are Anduze, Uzès, Nîmes and Montpellier, where you can do pretty much anything. Uzes in particular is a stunning medieval town with a wonderful midweek and Saturday market. The weather is warm and Mediterranean and in general the sun shines most of the year. It is a beautiful area, ideal for walkers and nature lovers where you can swim in the rivers if you need to cool off away from the house. There is so much sightseeing to be done in the area it’s difficult to know where to start. You can visit the stunning historical cities and towns (Uzès, Nimes, Montpellier) which still have some of the best Roman architecture in Europe (wonderful arenas). There are many activities you can do either on your door step or within 45 minutes’ travel: horse riding near the village, paragliding, hot air ballooning, kayaking through the gorges, flying over the Cévennes, fishing in the rivers, the list does not end! You will see many cyclists on the road (if you fancy burning off some calories) or if you prefer there are so many wine and history tours in the area you won't be bored. Closer to the house, there are some beautiful hilltop villages like Vézénobres with its dramatic views, Anduze is also wonderful to visit, all providing great food and local arts and crafts shopping. You have food markets in different towns close by for each day of the week, and flea markets abound regularly during the summer. The village itself is very tranquil except during the annual summer party when bulls run through the streets; this a weekend event which takes place in early August; this traditional village 'fête votive' is when the whole village comes to life for 3 to 4 days; also, in September they have the 'fête du patrimoine' when the history of the village is celebrated. You have many local wine cellars where you can taste wine, and if you need to get anything else Alès is 15 minutes away with all amenities. You can pop to Tavernes, Cardet or Ledignan, all within 5 minutes’ drive to get some food, have a coffee or a beer and get your morning baguette. Nearby you can buy either fresh vegetables and fruit from farm vendors by the side of the road or there are bigger supermarkets within 10 mins from the house. And for children there is also a lot too. There is a small playground in the village, you can do a trip on the mountain steam train from Anduze up to St Jean du Gard (which also has a beautiful aquarium). The main aquarium nearby is superb in Montpellier and there are a lot of adventure and water parks on your way to Uzes, Montpellier and Ales. There is even a zip-wire tree top adventure park 10 minutes from the house. Something hopefully to keep everyone entertained!!
