This jewel of a holiday home sleeps 6-8 guests and is found in the heart of an authentic medieval village close to the Cévennes National Park.

Dating back over 300 years, Le Martinet’s restoration has been a labour of love for its dedicated owners over the last few years. They have brought this three-storey village house back to life with carefully chosen furnishings, modern fittings and works of art whilst respecting its great heritage. The three pretty bedrooms with king-size doubles feature air-conditioning alongside beautiful detail in the en suite bathrooms. Two extra guests can stay on an additional bed in the pigeon tower’s reading room/office.

The gorgeous kitchen-diner and stylish lounge both have doors leading to the upper terrace with its summer flowers, herbs, swimming pool and decked terrace, a truly wonderful spot for warm summer days. There’s the option for al-fresco dining by the barbecue and another table on the lower terrace near the wooden doors opening out to the street.

There’s a lovely bistro just a short stroll away that serves small dishes and good wine with stunning views from its terrace. The exquisite town of Uzès, around half an hour by car, is home to several excellent restaurants and an atmospheric twice-weekly market that takes place beneath the shady plane trees. Look out for good local wine and olive oil alongside sweet onions and goats cheese from the Cévennes.

Hikers will love the close proximity of wonderful trails – Anduze, the gateway to the Cévennes National Park, is 19km away. If you are not a keen walker then hop on the steam train that runs to Saint-Jean-du-Gard.

Visit the vineyards of Sommières, Languedoc or the Rhône valley, marvel at the historic sites of Nimes and Avignon and canoe or picnic by the incredible Pont du Gard, just one of many UNESCO World Heritage sites across this captivating part of southern France.

What you should know…

  • Le Martinet sleeps 6 guests across 3 bedrooms. Two further guests can be accommodated on an additional bed, if required, in the pigeon tower (a reading room/office).
  • This three-storey historic house is full of character – be mindful of low doorways, uneven floors and steep steps as you appreciate its charm.
  • Guests need to be able to manage lots of steps.
  • There are two primary entrances to the house - the first, from the street, taking you up the renovated central staircase to the main living area of the house, and the second via the blue gates, which lead you to the lower courtyard.
  • You can use the padlocked secured garage for parking (space for one small car) or there is free parking around the village.

In the Gard department of southern France, 47km from Nîmes Airport, Le Martinet is located in the heart of a charming medieval village close to the Cévennes National Park.
You could also fly into Montpellier Airport (70km) or arrive via TGV train from Paris Gare de Lyon to Nimes with onward connections to Alès (12.5km), taking just over four hours.

The village is so pretty and authentic – wander down the narrow cobbled lanes, stop off for crêpes and coffee and dine out in the local bistro just down the road serving good local food and wine on its outdoor terrace. There are glorious views of the surrounding countryside and vineyards from the village’s hillside position.

Soak up the charm of this region in the market town of Uzès (28km), a delightful place to explore with its historic architecture and enchanting twice-weekly market that takes place beneath the shady plane trees of Place aux Herbes on a Wednesday and Saturday morning. It is often regarded as one of France’s most beautiful markets and gastronomic specialities to look out for include olive oil, sweet onions, goat’s cheese, truffles (in the winter), good wine, honey alongside seasonal fruit and vegetables. Uzès is also home to a variety of excellent restaurants showcasing the best regional cuisine.

The towns of Alès (12.5km) and Anduze (19km) are both considered to be the gateways to the Cévennes National Park – Le Gardon River runs through both. Try Pélardon goat’s cheese from Anduze’s Saturday morning market and look out for the steam train that takes you to the lovely village of Saint-Jean-du-Gard. It goes without saying that the Cévennes National Park is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts with its hiking trails.

Elsewhere, visit the fascinating cities of Nimes (35km) and Avignon (65km), canoe beneath Le Pont du Gard (40km) and sample wines across the Rhône valley, Languedoc region or around the historic wine town of Sommières (35km).

Region

Languedoc-Roussillon is one of those areas of France where you can feel like you’re totally cut off from the rest of the country. Commercial tourism has been very slow to capitalise on the region, meaning you can still enjoy a slice of authentic French rural life at its finest. A mixture of landscapes also makes it a great place to visit, with a good stretch of coastline offering a totally different experience to more bucolic interiors. Whatever you’re looking for, our range of villas and chateaux in Languedoc means you can get exactly the kind of holiday you want with accommodation that’s perfectly tailored to you, your friends and your family.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages

Be enchanted by Le Martinet’s village setting with pretty cobbled lanes and medieval houses. This is also a great location for visiting Cévennes National Park, a paradise for outdoor adventurists with its hiking trails. Admire the beautiful scenery on board the steam train between Anduze and Saint-Jean-du-Gard.

Aqua Forest, around a 20-minute drive away, offers tree-top trails for a variety of ages alongside waterslides, laser games and an escape adventure. Close by is Anduze’s botanical garden, La Bambouseraie, whilst the Vélorail des Cévennes is half an hour away, a great way to appreciate the landscapes as you pedal power your own open air vehicle along the rails.

Elsewhere, canoe or kayak beneath Le Pont du Gard or simply picnic or paddle by the river with an amazing outlook of this UNESCO World Heritage site. Roman history lovers should also visit Nimes, home to the amazingly preserved Maison Carrée and amphitheatre.
