St-Laurent-le-Minier Cottage Rental Photos and Description
On the southern slope of the mediterranean Cevennes
In a relaxing setting of greenery and forest of 7ha, the authentic house of old stones was built in the 17th century and renovated with great care. It offers an unforgettable view above the 'Vis' valley. Within 3 minutes by car, you can have a swim in the 'Vis' river and enjoy its magnificent waterfall - a protected site - or go canoeing on the river 'Hérault'. The site is beautiful.

There are many places to visit, amongst which the amazing 'Cirque of Navacelles', the meteorological observatory of the 1537 meters high 'Mount Aigoual' or the 'Caves of the Demoiselles'. You will enjoy the traditional market which is held every Friday in the beautiful city of 'Ganges' 5 kilometers away. And for the hiking or bicycle lovers there are exciting places.

About Joëlle Bresson
Our roots from the Cevennes and our love to the region did motivate us during the years of the renovation of the cottage, which was built in the 17th century during the time of the breeding ot the silkworms. It is a nice way for thanking our elders for the history and their hard work. It's the place where our sons did grow up in total freedom.
Joëlle Bresson purchased this cottage in 1978
