Ganges chateau / country house description

This charming private tower of the magnificent 15th Century Chateau St Laurent can be exclusively hired for groups of up to 10. The 7 hectare estate is situated in the foothills of the Cevennes and even has its own private beach area on the river with waterfall that guests are free to swim in.

The main garden of Chateau St Laurent leads out from the chateau sitting room and contains a substantial dining terrace, overlooking the pond and set against the backdrop of a stunning vista of the surrounding countryside.

We can arrange airport pick-ups, cleaning, baby-sitting and cooking to any level of service to suit your needs. The chateau has its own private pool and swimming is also available in the river below the chateau via the private beach area.

Please note that full property descriptions, photographs, availability & prices are kept up to date on my website which you can visit by clicking on my personal website link below.

Interior and Grounds:
The property is a private tower that makes up part of a very large chateau that has been divided up in to separate buildings, each of which is totally private with its own personal garden and terrace. There is shared access to the rest of the estate including the river and waterfall. The property is equipped to sleep up to ten guests with space to add additional beds if needed.

The fully furnished kitchen comes with washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer etc. The expansive sitting room and dining area is situated next to the kitchen on one side and on the other is the enormous rear terrace that seats 12 guests comfortably and overlooks the river and surrounding countryside. The living room comes complete with TV, DVD player, VCR and sound system.

There are two big double bedrooms, two “lovers” bedrooms with single beds that are comfortable enough for two (both rooms have wash basins), two twin bedrooms and additional beds and sofas that are available for younger guests if necessary. All the bedrooms overlook the fountain and hills with two looking onto the magnificent waterfall. The tower also has three bathrooms and two separate WCs.

Outside in the garden there is a private swimming pool. In addition, a path through the grounds leads down to a private beach area that overlooks the river (great to swim in) and waterfall. There is also a forest of palm trees, the Cevennes national park, a typical French garden and plenty of outdoor parking with space for one car under cover. A tennis court and football pitch can be found just a 2 minute walk away.
