This beautiful old farmhouse, 400m2, is an exceptional example of a wealthy cevenol home. It dates originally from the 15th century, and was added on to in the 18th century. Here you have large salons, 11 bedrooms (two of which could sleep several people/children), a private chapel, all built around a courtyard with marvellous views of the hills. There is no swimming pool, but just 100m down the slope and you have a private river three metres deep in parts, where you can swim and fish. The house has been furnished to reflect its history. There is also a 120m2 two level stone barn in the grounds, adjacent to the main house, which could be renovated for extra accommodation.
The nearest primary schools is in Malbosc, 5 miles away, and the secondary school is in Les Vans, 12 miles away. There are restaurants in Malbosc, and in Aujac, 3 miles away (both with a small shop). It is just over 50 miles to the main A7 motorway (north to Lyon, or south to the sea, Spain or Italy).
