St.-Jean-du-Gard villa description

Visit our site for abundant photos and information about the house and its environment.

The Mas des Hauts de Falguières in an authentic self-catering stone family house. When renovated, every feature was kept: stones, beams, arched French doors, and the quaint comfort that makes it a true vacation home. The pool is open mid-April to mid-October. Nestled in a tranquill setting overlooking the wild valley of the Gardon on one side, and a pine and chestnut forest on the other side, at the crossroads of Provence and the natural State Park of the Cévennes, one hour from the Mediterranean, it is the perfect place to spend quality and peaceful vacation time. Winters are pleasant too, thanks to the comfortable master bedroom with fireplace, and wireless Internet + satellite TV. The house is non smoking. Local activities include hiking, horse riding, mountain biking, canoeing, or enjoying street markets. The river is only 300m away and kids love it!
