SPACIOUS COUNTRY HOME, LONG, PRIVATE POOL AND CHATEAU VIEWS, SLEEPS 8

Tornac Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom farmhouse with two baths, four WCs, long pool, balcony, garden, serene

This 200-year-old house has been renovated to the highest standards while retaining its rustic charm. It is furnished in an eclectic style combining French country furniture with African and Latin American artefacts.

The east-west facing ground level is completely open plan and full of sunshine. The ground level includes a comfortable living room, fully-equipped kitchen, and dining room with wide French doors that open onto the outdoor terrace. The terrace looks out onto the garden, private pool, hillside and chateau.

A staircase off the living room leads to the sleeping quarters on the next two levels. The middle level includes a master bedroom which overlooks the garden and pool. Attached is an en-suite bathroom with an independent WC and the clothes washing machine. There is also another separate guest WC on this level. The top level includes two double bedrooms, and a third bedroom with two single beds. The bathroom is quite spacious with a bath/shower. There is also a separate WC.

The house is on the foothills of the Cevennes Mountains and about three kilometres from the Bambouseraie, a unique Victorian bamboo forest. It is also an hour and ten minutes drive from the Mediterranean beaches near Montpellier. Other activities include canooing, under the nearby Roman Pont du Gard, one of the ancient wonders of the world. Visit the old haunts of Van Gogh, Gaugin, Cezanne and Picasso in nearby Arles and Avignon. Nimes and other villages, many dating to medieval times, are nearby, too. Or just step outside the house and hike in the hills and forests of the Cevennes Mountains.

charming house and garden, great swimming pool !

  • 5 of 5
We had a great relaxing time in this charming house hidden in the middle of a stone village. This is a perfect spot far from the crowds, for those in tune with nature and calm. The donkey next door contributes to the authenticity of the place. The garden is beautiful with fruit trees, vines and roses. The swimming pool is exceptional. Once you are in this house it takes loads of effort to go out! From Anduze you have access to great villages and cities worth the visit! I

Located in Tornac at the foothill of the Cevennes Mountain range, this area is bursting with wild beauty, history and culture. The medieval market town of Anduze is five minutes away. Once a stronghold of the Knights Templar, this village is still famous for its pottery which graces the gardens of Versailles. Just outside Anduze is the Bambouseraie, a forest of 150 varieties of bamboo trees established in the 19th century. Visit the nearby Musee de Desert, 10 minutes from the house, and learn all about the Protestant rebellion. Walk outside the front door and hike into the nearby hills, carpeted in heather and thyme. Here discover the pristine rivers and forest, and the haunts of the Huguenots. Follow in the footsteps of Robert Louis Stevenson, rent a donkey and visit the Cevennes National Park, a UNESCO biosphere reserve. Meander the elegant streets of the Duchy of Uzes, 45 minutes away or canoe underneath the Pont du Gard, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world and today a world heritage site.

Other Activities: canoeing, visiting local vineyards and wineries
