This unique MAISON DE VILLAGE IS IN AN AREA OF OUTSTANDING NATURAL BEAUTY and has a DELIGHTFUL COURTYARD GARDEN plus lovely RURAL VIEWS. The historic property is spacious, detached, three storey and is situated in the pretty little village of Madieres which is 12 miles from the market town of Ganges. There is A RIVER WITH BEACHES FOR SWIMMING FROM in the village.

The earliest building on the site was the original village church, founded in the 12th Century, and extended twice in the 16th and 18th Centuries. The original church and bell tower now house a barbecue area in the garden and the walls of the church form the walls of the garden itself. A presbytery was attached to the side of the church in the 17th century; this now constitutes the oldest part of the house, with massive beams, and houses the sitting room (top floor) and guest suite (sitting room with terrace, bedroom, en-suite bathroom and wc). The Church was deconsecrated in 1830, and an auberge with stables was built onto the front in 1834. The old auberge and stables then became the newest part of the house - and this was how it still was when we discovered it twenty-five years ago. We had it re-roofed, rewired and re-plumbed!


ABOUT THE AREA

Madieres sits in the 'Gorges de la Vis' a valley nestling in the foothills of the Cevennes. The River Vis, which runs through the village, has a number of small beaches, one with a huge pool ideal for swimming. There are a number of larger beaches alongside the river in the direction of Ganges with restaurants and bars.
The village has its own Cafe/Restaurant with an outside garden ; the food is simple but very good. They also supply bread.
Madieres is on the edge of the Cevennes national park, a dramatic landscape of gorges cutting through a terrain of limestone. The Templar village of La Couverterade and the small town of Pezenas are particularly famous, and Nimes and Montpellier are interesting old cities with attractive pedestrian centres
