direct environment

The house is on the outskirts of the village, surrounded by vineyards and bordered by a small stream. Several paths lead into the fields and invite you to take walks in the beautiful landscape.

Tourist attractions: cities

The nearest shop is in the village of Saint-Hillaire de Bremas with the world's best bakery, butcher and small supermarket and cafe about 6 kilometers away. More extensive shopping opportunities with everything your heart desires can be found in Ales, Vezenobres and Uzes.

Colorful and beautiful on Saturdays is the picturesque weekly market in
Uzès , equipped with everything that Provence has to offer for kitchen and cellar. Strolling through alleys, visiting the ducal palace (Uzès is the oldest duchy in France), and then relaxing with a café au lait or rosé is pure vacation.

The spring that supplied Nimes with water via the Pont du Gard (World Heritage Site) rises very close to Uzès. Nimes itself is worth many excursions, from the Romans to modern times, the epochs that shaped Nimes are reflected. Particularly worth seeing is the Arena, the Maison Carre, the Cathedral and the sensational Museé de la Romanité next to the Arena.

Avignon is another cultural and historical focus with its impressive papal palace, museums that are well worth seeing, a well-preserved city wall, its incomparably beautiful location on the Rhone and the much-sung about Pont d'Avignon.

But also
Orange with its Roman amphitheater, Arles with its spectacular LUMA cultural center built by Frank Gery and Aix en Provence as well as the austere beauty of the Camarque are attractive and can be reached quickly thanks to good transport connections.


Natural attractions and sports activities

The spectacular natural attractions of the Cevennes, Ardèche and Camarque are ideal for day trips, as is the Mediterranean Sea.

The Cevennes and the Ardeche open up a wide range of opportunities for swimming, hiking, cycling and climbing . Already RL Stevenson (author of "Treasure Island") described a hike through the Cevennes, which he carried out with his donkey Modestine. This tour is still possible today in the same way, but requires time and physical condition.

Canoeing is also possible in the Cevennes and the Ardeche, but also on the Gardon from Collias to the Pont du Gard. It is a fascinating sight when, behind a bend in the Gardon, the Pont du Gard suddenly rises above the river.

Golfers have the opportunity to practice their sport on 3 courses. A 9 hole course is close by
  Uzes . Nimes has two beautifully maintained courses, each with 18 holes,  Nimes Campaign  and  Nimes Vaxquerolles . There are also other places near Avignon, Montpellier, Arles, Orange and Beaux.

Hang gliding and paragliding are possible on nearby Mont Bouquet.

Bullfights traditionally take place in southern France , both bloodless Provençal or Portuguese style, as well as traditional Spanish style on foot and on horseback. Nimes, Arles and Beucaire are the most famous arenas.

This is new and exciting
  Chauvet cave  in the nearby Ardeche with the oldest datable cave paintings known to man. The faithful replica of the cave was opened in April 2015.

Also very close by are stalactite caves that can be visited, and a visit to Europe's largest bamboo factory is also worthwhile.

But even simple trips through the country with breaks in small, picturesque towns open up the beauty of southern France.

Traces of the Cathars can be found west of Montpellier
