La Draille

To the south-east of the Lozère lies the department of Gard; the eastern corner of the Languedoc-Roussillon province bordering Provence.
Here lies our house, situated 20 minutes from Montpellier, Nimes and the coast.
The house is on a sloping terraced terrain of 4000 m2 and is completely fenced. From the terraces you have a beautiful view over the valley.
Access via electric gate.
It is a typical Provencal villa, with several terraces to get in and out of the sun.

The atmosphere in the Gard is clearly Provençal. You notice that especially in the beautiful city of Nîmes, the Rome of France. The Roman amphitheater, the temple of the goddess Diana and the Roman aqueduct located outside the city, remind us of the time when this part of France was a 'Province' of the Roman Empire. Just outside the city is the huge aqueduct Pont du Gard. (nice for swimming)

The Gard is also known for the marshy lakes on the coast, the Petite Camargue. A walk over the fortification walls of the town of Aigues-Mortes offers a beautiful view of this 'dead water landscape' full of wild horses, flamingos and migratory birds.

A trip to a fascinating city or smaller place is soon made. Montpellier has as its beating heart the Place de la Comédie with its 19th-century opera house, the Three Graces Fountain and all kinds of cafes.

Take a look at Uzes and Arles or cycle to one of the nice markets in Sommieres or Calvisson: the Catalan heritage is clearly visible: the bullfights (the bull is not killed), the paella and the brightly colored houses.

And everywhere festivals.

Then get away from all the fun and party: the hinterland for a tour or hike through the quiet beauty of the Parc de Cévennes. Enjoy the surroundings as you sail along the road or across the water from the Canal du Midi (pleasure cruising) in the sun through wine fields to Pezenas, Bezier and Carcassonne. The restored medieval ramparts and towers can be seen from afar.

With (then) 3 young children you have your wishes regarding safety, luxury and privacy. In Congenies we found what we were looking for. Walking to the bakery, cozy, beautiful cities nearby, without traffic jams to the beach. A spacious cozy comfortable house, quiet, but in a real French environment. We enjoy the visits to the caves in search of that tasty wine, cycling through vineyards to authentic markets, a lunch on the beach and of course the drinks at the pool in the evening sun.

    De eerste twee weken van september was La Draille ons (t)huis. De drie generaties, waaronder een baby van van 8 maanden en een peuter van 2,5 jaar , hebben daar genoten.
    Het huis voldoet volledig aan de omschrijving op de website.
    Door de sfeer en de ruimte van het gezellige en smaakvol ingerichte huis, voorzien van allerlei prettige zaken zoals airco , een te verwarmen zwembad ( niet nodig gehad) , een volledig ingerichte keuken, een super Weber op het terrras, zeer gewaardeerd speelgoed door onze peuter , kon onze vakantie niet stuk.
    Dan is er ook nog eens het heerlijke klimaat en het prachtige uitzicht en woon je aan de rand van een echt Frans dorp met een goede bakker en een kleine Epicerie, goed voor een een lekkere wandeling.
    Met de auto zijn de kust, de prachtige steden en dorpen prima bereikbaar.
    De twee weken waren eigenlijk te kort. We moeten terug!

  • Pieter Swart, with the family. Gave on an average of 9.9  

    Heerlijk huis van alle gemakken voorzien. Prachtig uitzicht en veel moois te zien in de omgeving.
    We hebben met kinderen en grote kleinkinderen een heerlijke week gehad!

  • Michael Eichelsheim, with the family. Gave on an average of 9.0  

    Uitstekende plek om met groot gezin (7) en kinderen in leeftijd van 15-27 vakantie te vieren. Een plek om uit te rusten en ook in de omgeving activiteiten te doen.
