CHARACTERFUL 13TH CENTURY VILLAGE HOUSE WITH MOUNTAIN VIEW TERRACE

St-Laurent-le-Minier House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6 (can stretch to 8), near beautiful waterfalls

'Cevenole' is a tall stone, characterful 13 th Century village house on 4 levels,retaining original medieval features, whilst benefiting from some recent modernisation. It has a huge mountain-view terrace excellent for romantic star-gazing, secluded sunbathing BBQ and meals al fresco. The rooms are spacious : it is in part open plan in design. The large living room has a log fire. The kitchen has a surprising and atmospheric back wall, mountain rock! The house is fully equipped with all basic facilities, is in the oldest street in the village and very peaceful, but also with easy access to the shop and cafe/restaurant. Layout: ground floor- workshop area; 1st floor large living room opening onto good sized kitchen, both large enough for sit-down meals; 2nd floor-master bedroom small anti-room next to good sized bathroom back bedroom under gallery ; 4th floor-mezzanine with double bed next to gallery with french windows onto terrace which overlooks the terracotta roofs of the village and mountains.

guests' impressions:One couple felt they were having like a second honeymoon with all their meals al fresco on the terrace. These are some of the comments we have had from people who have stayed in the house: 'this is a house for people who enjoy a classically French environment.Both the house and the village have tons of character and we just loved our explorations, jumping in different parts of the rivers en route on and off throughout the day.Other days we just lazed, on the nearest sea beaches, by the river or on the sublime terrace, also wonderful for moon annd star gazing'

The house is comfortable and full of interest, beauty and character.However it is not a 'smart house' or furnished like a city appartment.The furniture is eclectic and characterful in keeping with the house itself..

Other comments:'we loved the combination of peace and quiet and loads of activities, rural or urban, which are easily accessible.Swam in the river, played lots of tennis(5 mins away) and went for superb meals in restaurants nearby or in chic Montpellier'

'fell in love with this most unusual house, with its medieval bits and nooks and crannies, and found the area very genuine and unspoilt.Enough places to visit for months!

'Activities for all tastes-trekking, sport, culture, delish dinners.Some days just walked into mts from front door.'

I am an extensive traveller and writer,still part time practising as psychotherapuist. I was born in Scotland of English parents but have lived in(Notting Hill) in and around London since the age of 4.I love France and adore my village and house,visiting myself 2 or 3 times a year.

Gillian Woodward code 9588 purchased this house in 1990

I speak fairly fluent French(part 0f my 1st degree) and have gone to france every year since the age of 14.I love the wildness of the area and wanted a base in a warmer part of the world. I was drawn to that particular house and area because of the very interesting history.Its quite something spending time in a 13th century house.

Its atmosphere and character;the natural materials its built with;the peace and quiet; the authentic frenchness of the village, village of 30 bridges!-and many other things listed in other parts of the blurb.

TRAUMHAFTE DACHTERRASSE

  • 2 of 5
Das Haus liegt idyllisch und ruhig am Dorfrand in einer engen Dorfgasse. Es hat nach Süden hin Fenster, so dass es von Stockwerk zu Stockwerk nach oben hin heller und wärmer wird.

Im EG befindet sich ein kleiner Abstellraum. Über eine steile, lange und unebene Steintreppe gelangt man in das etwas dunkle Ess-und Kaminzimmer im 1. Stock. Dahinter die Küche im Fels, kühl und feucht und ohne Fenster (ungeeignet für Asthmatiker), jedoch mit ausreichender Beleuchtung und Abzug. Ein Stock höher ein geräumiges Schlafzimmer /einziges Zi. mit Kleiderschrank, allerdings als Durchgangszimmer mit Tür. Dahinter Bad und 2. Durchgangsbett ohne Tür, ein Stock höher eine lichte, freundliche Galerie mit 3. Bett im Durchgang zur wirklich superschönen, großen Dachterrasse.

Essen und Geschirr sind dann über etliche Treppen hochzutragen, Wasser zum Tischabwischen oben nicht vorhanden, jedoch im Bad, 1 Stock tiefer. Im Dachterrassenzimmer steht angenehmerweise ein Kühlschrank, der alle 10 Min. 5 Min.lang (auch nachts!) zu brummen beginnt, jede Menge Kerzen, ein Wasserkocher und ein wenig Besteck.

Das Haus wirkt insges. gepflegt & sauber, die Küche ist bestens eingerichtet, auch das Bad funktioniert. Für 2 Personen erhielten wir für 2 Wochen 2 Duschtücher und ein normal großes Handtuch. Waschmaschine funktionierte.

Das Haus ist nicht direkt anfahrbar mit dem Pkw, Gepäck bei An-und Abreise einige Meter zu tragen; Pkw-Parkmöglichkeit am Platz, manchmal nur mit etwas Glück und natürlich nicht immer im Schatten.

Erwähnt werden sollte, dass es schwarze Skorpione im Haus gibt. Auch an der Wand am Bett (!!!). Wer das nicht mag: Moskitonetz mitbringen, half uns sehr.
Wenig einladend fand ich die schwarzen Schimmelflecken innen an der Wand im Schlafzimmer, oben rechts am Fenster, direkt am Balken.
Ein wenig Geschick beim Anfassen erforderten die völlig verschlissenen, sich in Fetzen auflösenden blauweißgestreiften Sitz-und Liegeunterlagen.
Vor ein Rätsel stellte uns die im Vertrag formulierte Forderung, bei der Abreise die gesamte Wäsche, also auch die Bettwäsche, gewaschen und getrocknet zu hinterlassen (optional: Zusatzzahlung).
Überrascht waren wir bei der Buchung, als plötzlich statt der angegebenen Euro pro Woche ein etwas höherer Betrag erschien (zuzügl. deposit). Da wir das Haus nur mit 2 Personen bewohnten und entspr. weniger Nk verursachten als bei Vollbelegung, war die Preiserhöhung nicht nachvollziehbar für uns.

Insgesamt dennoch sehr zu empfehlen.

CHARMANTES DORFHAUS AUS STEIN

  • 5 of 5
Charmantes Dorfhaus, zentral gelegen mit einer wirklich traumhaften Dachterrasse mit Super-Ausblick auf das schöne Dorf Saint-Laurent. Alle Angaben entsprachen den Tatsachen. Wir haben uns vom ersten Moment an wohlgefühlt und haben jeden Tag genossen. Die Umgebung von Saint-Laurent ist ebenfalls sehr reizvoll, mit wunderbaren Bademöglichkeiten im glasklaren Wasser. Das Restaurant in unmittelbarer Nähe der Cascade ist empfehlenswert. Das Restaurant direkt auf dem Dorfplatz ist hingegen nur mittags geöffnet. Alles in allem wirklich ein empfehlenswerter Standort für einen gelungenen Urlaub im schönen Languedoc. Übrigens ist der englische Besitzer Gillian ausgesprochen hilfsbereit und sympathisch!

FRANKREICH PUR!

  • 5 of 5
Tolles, sehr individuelles Haus in einem verträumten französischen Dorf, mit allem was man für einen gelungenen Urlaub braucht : voll ausgestattete Küche (direkt in den Fels gebaut!), Waschmaschine, Kamin und einer traumhaften Dachterrasse. Außerdem gibt es nur wenige Autominuten entfernt einen wunderschönen, glasklaren Fluß der einen das Meer nicht vermissen läßt!!! Gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in Ganges (aber auch unbedingt die ortsansässige Boulangerie besuchen!).
Eine perfekte Adress für Menschen (Familien) die Land und Leute kennenlernen wollen und keinen Wert auf Massentourismus und deutsche Nachbarn im Urlaub legen!
Außerdem: Sehr netter Kontakt mit den englischen Besitzern!

Car: recommended

The house is in a classic, pretty French village with 30 ! bridges, 49km north of Montpellier, sometimes called the Paris of the south because of the fine architecture and rich culture. It is 10min walk from waterfalls and river beaches, at the foot of the Cevennes mountains,(now an Ionesco awarded World Heritage Area), so you have both wild, unpackaged countryside and the mellow Mediterranean vineyards of sensuous Provence. The nearest towns are Ganges(5km) and Le Vigan(15km) which are pleasantly slow-paced, full of nooks and crannies and sport festivals at different times of the year.You can walk out into the mountains from the front door and the roads are rarely congested for exploratory driving at all times. The clear rivers Vis and Herault run nearby and are popular for swimming and canooing. The Mediterrane beaches and the Camargue are an hour away.The village itself is an artist's delight with cafe/restaurant, post office, library and bakery. In winter there's skiing around Mont d'Agouil 80km away. The cultural activity in the village is growing, e g the yearly Chemin d'Arts(artists' open house) and Cinema aux Etoiles put on by village film making centre, La Fabrique: there is a new arts and crafts shop at the bottom of our street.

Other Activities: canooing; caves(famous ones);historic and geological sites; museums;festivals; markets; cinema;theatre
