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 and La Camargue, the vineyards of the Côtes du Rhone, the cultural sites of historic significance such as Avignon, Arles and the Pont du Gard, the cosmopolitan towns of Montpellier, Nimes and Uzes (and the smaller delightful mediaeval towns of Vézénobres, Aigues Mortes, La Roque-sur-Cèze and St Guilhem-le-Désert (Hérault)., 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 ...

For food and wine lovers, there is an abundance of gastronomic delights and wine domaines. 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.

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' (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!

With consistent sunshine throughout the spring and summer months and a landscape which lends itself to the outdoor lifestyle, the area is a playground for 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.

To list all the activities and attractions available to the visitor would take volumes. Whether foodie, sports enthusiast or culture vulture, adults can indulge themselves with the wine and gastronomy; cultural sites and artistic visits (such as the ceramics in Saint Quentin la Poterie); watching the traditional summer festivals with their bull running; adventures on the hiking, cycling, kayaking or climbing and caving routes, swimming or fishing in the rivers; airborne activities such as parachuting, ballooning and micro lighting - or if all that sounds too exhausting - by just simply relaxing !

Leisurely family entertainment can be found lazing the day away on the long sandy beaches or in one of the numerous fun parks such as La Bouscarrasse or Espace Grand Bleu Water Parks near Uzès and La Grande Motte; horse riding and pony trekking at one of the many centres or visit the Haribo museum or the Crocodile farm at Pierrelatte.

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.

Gold de Nimes Vacquerolles 1075 Chemin du Golf 30900 Nîmes

Golf d'Uzès, Pont des Charrettes - 9 holes, 2995m Par 36

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 Anduze - Cevennes Piemont

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

Lovely place, beautiful village and so handy for heading east to Uzès and the Ardeche and west into the beautiful Cevennes. Bracing but largely sunny autumn weather

The property was well laid out and bright. We also ended up having the pool to ourselves so that was a bonus. Would definitely come again, Vezenobres is stunning.

So good we went there twice

  • 5 of 5

We felt immediately relaxed at the property, knowing what to expect from our stay the previous year. This flat has the advantage of a private sun terrace attached to the bedroom where you could (though we didn't) fire up the barbecue - perhaps because we were being barbecued ourselves by the hot sun! The lounge is extremely comfortable, well-appointed and large with a wonderful view out over the medieval village street. The bathroom is sizeable and, with outdoor air-drying being little short of instantaneous, we made good use of the washing machine etc provided. The kitchen is perhaps a little 'bijou' but we found it perfectly adequate for our needs, cooking and dining at the property most nights. The plunge pool outside the front entrance is very welcome, though it is of course shared with the tenants of the other flat. As to the location of the property, you could hardly find a better spot. Vezenobres is gorgeous, well-worn cobbles and all. It's utterly charming, photogenic and friendly.

Ideal location.

  • 4 of 5

The property was a great size for 2 people and the terrace was a wonderful addition. It was great to stay in a gite in the middle of the village and we enjoyed going to the fig festival. Vézénobres is ideally located to reach lots of attractions.

L'Hirondelle apartment , well placed in Vezenobres

  • 4 of 5

A well fitted, typically french spacious apartment with great views. The steps leading up to the apartment did hinder the storage and access for our cycles but we did overcome this problem as the owners provided us with storage on the ground floor. If you have mobility problems this is definitely NOT the apartment for you and the steep cobbled streets may cause problems for some .

The apartment had everything we required to cater for ourselves which we did quite often. Leading off from the apartment is a secluded splash pool and terrace (shared with the apartment below) but again this was no detriment for us. We met a lovely family with young children who were great company.

Salima was absolutely lovely and had a home cooked meal waiting for us ready to warm up and some basic groceries (at a small cost) when we arrived late on the saturday evening.

We enjoyed our stay in the medieval village very much despite access been limited to the apartment. Had we known this before we booked it would have probably deterred us however the village is absolutely beautiful, quaint and a great place to stay and we would have missed a fantastic experience.

The local Tabac, restaurant & boulangerie served fantastic food and the staff were very friendly and welcoming . There is also a well stocked shop within a short walk to and a hairdressers & pharmacy who were also very obliging.

The location is fantastic and is very central for visiting local attractions of which there are many.

All in all we had a fantastic holiday in beautiful surroundings and would love to revisit one day. If you want a very cultured quiet holiday Vezenobres is the place to go!!!

Perfectly-located home from home!

  • 5 of 5

It says something about Vézénobres and L’Hirondelle that we could have stayed here all week and not ventured beyond the village, yet our holiday would still have been really enjoyable and 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. And I'd like to add that we're returning next year as well, which is very unusual behaviour for us. We must have loved it!!

We loved L'Hirondelle and we loved Vezenobres! The village itself is beautiful and very friendly and L'Hirondelle was a wonderful and truly relaxing place to stay. Exceeded expectations - wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
