Property description

You are invited to our privately owned, 400-acre estate and vineyard situated in the Gard at the foothills of the Cevennes. This magnificent and unique 1830 Mas sleeps up to 13, with an elegant lawn and vaulted ceilings. Outside there are balconies, terraces and gardens.

A large, completely private swimming lake is fed by four natural sources and maintains an agreeable temperature.

It is a short trip, 1.8 km, to shopping and restaurants in the lovely village of Quissac, where Robert Louis Stevenson finished his book “Travels with a Donkey." Quissac is within close proximity to the metropolitan cities of Montpellier and Nîmes, where you will find the best preserved Roman ruins, world-renowned prehistoric caves and bamboo gardens. Stunning Mediterranean beaches are less then 40km from the villa. And at our Villa, you are surrounded by majestic tress, fabulous mountain hiking, canoeing, and wine tastings everywhere!

Perfect for children, as well as long-term renters. Plantat is a fully equipped home, ready to welcome.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: As a choreographer, when I need not be in New York City, I am lucky to gather inspiration at this magical home.

Why the Owner Chose Quissac, France:
Plantat is paradise. Walking on to the property, one is greeted by the smell of lavender. I fell in love with the air, the flowers, and the stone arches of the orangarie at Villa Plantat.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
The private swimming lake is heaven. The water makes your skin feel wonderful and is fed by 4 springs producing 7 million liters of water a day. Sunsets on the stone veranda are visual music. It is an Eden.
