About the property

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. It is a pleasure to walk along the little roads which still have the charm of yesteryear. 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

Why Joëlle Bresson chose Le Vigan - Mont Aigoual

The cottage is and will stay our family cottage. The hamlet of La Combe is located 2 km above the village of Saint Laurent Le Minier in front of the dale of the Vis. Everything is full of sun and green. The wide open space and the magic of this space are perfect for breathing new life.

What makes this cottage unique

The situation of the hamlet allows you to travel through the region and than to enjoy some peace on the sundeck. The fully renovated cottage is very comfortable. During the summer, you may enjoy bathing in the clear water of the Vis and canoeing on the river 'Hérault'. There are plenty of visits to do in the surroundings, you may travel with your car, your bike, your feet or on the back of a donkey. You may also laze in the coolness of the house or in the shadow of the trees.

Traumhaus in den Cevennen

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren unmittelbar nach dem herzlichen Empfang und die angenehme Einweisung durch die sehr sympathischen Vermieter beglückt vom Zauber dieses Ortes.

Das Haus atmet den Charme seines über 300-jährigen Alters, erfüllt dabei alle Ansprüche an zeitgemäßes Wohnen und ist großzügig und sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Die große Sommerhitze ließ sich gut vonm Hausinneren fernhalten. Die schöne Küche bietet alles, was man zum Zubereiten der Ferienleckereien braucht. Von der Küche führt eine breite Tür direkt auf die große Terrasse, deren Stille und Aussicht in eine großartige Natur einzigartig sind - traumhaft.

Wir haben uns sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt und empfehlen das Haus gerne und wärmstens an alle weiter, die einen ruhigen Ort eingebettet in wunderbare Umgebung suchen.

Wundervolle Ferien in der Natur

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus zu finden war mit der Beschreibung einfach. Die Begrüßung war herzlich und informativ und kulinarisch. (Tomaten aus dem Garten )

Wir waren von der Schönheit der Landschaft, der Terasse , der stilvollen Einrichtung der Wohnung beeindruckt. Ebenfalls von der Aussicht und der Stille.

Der Gartem ist wundervoll. Wir durften die Tomaten aus dem Garten sowie Feigen unf Pflaumen probieren.

Ein Order lag bereit mit Empfehlungen über Ausflüge mit Zeitangabe.

Die Küche war für Selbstversorger bestens eingerichtet. Alles war sehr sauber und gepflegt.

Ich würde diese Wohnung jedem empfehlen der die Einsamkeit und Stille liebt .Wir würden jederzeit wieder hinfahren ,denn wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

Le plein de nature à l'abris des vielles pierres

  • 5 of 5

Dans cette étonnante et authentique maison cévenole, idéalement située au coeur d'une combe avec les Cévennes pour seul paysage, nous avons passé une semaine idéale . L'agencement du gîte est bien pensé et en fait un lieu agréable à vivre .

Les propriétaires nous ont amicalement accueillis à la chaleur du feu du bois et donnés tous les conseils et informations, la documentation contient des guides de très bonne qualité pour l'organisation de randonnées.

Géographiquement St Laurent est très bien situé et permet d'accéder rapidement à une grande variété de paysages remarquables, Cévennes, Grands Causses, Vallée de l'Hérault vers St Guilhem, Vallée de la Vis vers Navacelles .

Hoch über dem Tal

  • 5 of 5

Das alte Haus ist liebevoll renoviert und komplett ausgestattet. Es liegt hoch über dem kleinen Ort in wundervoller Umgebung. Ein Auto ist erforderlich, die Anfahrt entspricht der Lage in den Bergen. Die Vermieter haben eine gute Sammlung an Wanderungen und Einkaufs- sowie Besichtigungstipps.

La nature retrouvée

  • 5 of 5

Séjour tranquille, pour lézarder sur la terrasse ou pour visiter la région qui mérite d'être découverte. Entre les beaux villages, les grottes, les sites remarquables, les ballades avec des points de vue à couper le souffle. Les propriétaires sont des personnes, on ne peut plus agréable. Pour vous conseiller et vous permettre d'avoir à disposition tout les documents sur les activités et les visites. Un véritable office de tourisme en mieux.
