The cottage has its own private shady garden which merges into the meadows, with hammock and bbq, probably the most welcome extension to any accommodation giving you the opportunity to dine under the trees and relax outside throughout the day and evening. It's a great spot for star and meteorite gazing.

Safe parking next to the cottage. Free wi-fi at the cottage.

You'll arrive to clean accommodation, the beds made up, cold drinks in the fridge and a complimentary bottle of wine to enjoy in your own shady garden. We are on site to welcome you in and show you around. So close to all amenities, motorway and airport, yet away from noisy roads, so close to a host of famous places Avignon, Nimes, Montpellier etc, yet so tempting to just relax in the hammock in your own garden or swim in the large sparkling 6x12 metre pool.

Mas du Moulin d'Astruc and its separate cottages are surrounded by 12 acres of vineyard and meadows and set within a conservation area of outstanding natural beauty. It lies near the medieval village of Sauve, overlooks the River Vidourle and is at the foot of the Cevenne Hills and National Park. You're only a 5 minutes walk from an excellent restaurant. Supermarkets and all other facilities are less than a 5 minute drive away. There are beautiful local markets and it's situated ideally for touring famous cities, villages and natural sites, river swimming, visiting the beach or walking to nearby Sauve.

You'll be in the heart of beautiful countryside but not isolated. Why not walk the quiet lane to the medieval village for morning bread. Great for joggers too!

About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Nicholas Moore-Morris

We arrived here with our young family searching for a space given over to nature, calm with natural beauty plus all the facilities needed by a family - and found it here.

Year property purchased 1990
Why this location? Why this property? Well because it's close to all the facilities you may need and not up a mountain pass! The region is stunning in its beauty, there's a super pool waiting, great local walks, plenty of attractions from caves and train rides to bamboo forests and Roman temples, beautiful markets, great wine and even river swimming. It's a great place to relax and watch the stars at night. Surrounded by a beautiful natural environment in a conservation area but close to art galleries, supermarkets, restaurants and a wonderful wine growing area.It's close to this side of paradise! and offers you your own garden area as well as acres of meadow land to enjoy. Walk the medieval lane to Sauve for breakfast bread or in the evening to one of the nearby restaurants.
Unique benefits of property Easy to get to with airports at Montpellier and Nimes, the TGV to Nimes and Motorway at 20m KM and once you arrive you will be in the heart of nature with meadows next to your garden, great views and away from busy roads yet a short walk along the lane to the nearby village for shopping and restaurants. Its a great spot to relax and if you have kids, let them wander safely. Full wi-fi keeps you in touch...if you want! A sky full of stars with no light pollution - great view from the hammock, a bbq in your own garden. Relax.
We offer you fully flexible holiday dates eg, Thursday to Saturday (days) except between July 18th and Sept 5th when it's Sat to Sat only.

The Owner Recommends

Swim in the Med. and mountain streams, visit Roman arenas and local markets,go canoeing and caving- all close.

A base off the tourist trail.. But you will be so close to so many wonderful things to see and do.
Beautiful local markets, the wonderful town of Nimes with Roman temples - the best preserved outside of Rome itself, Roman arena still in use, steam train ride through a beautiful valley and bamboo jungle, a fabulous Mediterranean beach just 40 mins. beautiful river swimming and canoeing. Wonderful caves to visit. It's less than hour to the Camargue, Arles, the Pont du Gard ( fabulous huge Roman aqueduct) Montpellier and Uzes
. Great walks and birdwatching from the property, excellent restaurants a walk away. Or you can just relax!
For cyclists there is a huge variety of landscapes offering all levels of challenge. And Mount Ventoux is not far! Tour du France passes close bye.
