This beautiful house, lovingly restored by the Galgey family, is located in the rural village of Monoblet, with stunning views of the Cevennes, France’s largest regional park. The house sleeps up to 14 in 5 bedrooms and has air-conditioning throughout. Les Planas boasts a large kitchen with a family-sized table, as well as an outside covered eating terrace, perfect for entertaining. The master bedroom with en-suite has a balcony with table and chairs, overlooking the garden and mountains. There are three further double bedrooms (one with a bunkbed), three bathrooms and a family bedroom with 2 bunkbeds and a cot. All linen and towels are provided. Downstairs, guests can relax in the large sitting room, the study or the second sitting room, which opens on to the vine terrace and 15 metre heated pool (fenced). The house is well equipped for children with a chest of toys, satellite television and Wi-Fi. The owners can arrange for a private chef, who sources fresh, local food, to come to the house one or two evenings during the week at an extra cost of €35 per person.
Within a 3 minute walk from the house, there is a baker, post office, bar, simple French restaurant, playground and riding school. There is ample parking at the back of the house and we recommend that guests explore by car, visiting the nearby towns of St Hippolyte-Du-Fort and Anduze. Both have good shopping facilities, open-air markets, cafés, banks, bars and restaurants. There’s lots to do in the region – walk, climb, cycle; visit the superb bamboo forest in Anduze or Roman Nîmes, take the steam train up to St Jean du Gard – children love it – and nothing is very far. There are airports in Nîmes and Montpellier. Both are about 1 hour’s drive away. Marseilles (a major international airport) is 2 hours away and the super-fast TGV train stops at Nîmes.
Accommodation only – no flights included.
