Outside Details

South of France Farmhouse near Nimes sleeping 8-12

A courtyard garden of 500m2, is paved with gravel edges housing trees and plants, leading to the terrace and pool deck.

The pool deck is gated and half a dozen steps lead up from the terrace area to the raised unusually shaped heated swimming pool, which is 7m x 6m x 1-3-1.5m and has an alarm. The stone walling and evenly placed planters give this area a "Zen" feel.

For the pool the Owners chose a "river style" dark blue colouring which retains more heat and keeps the water warmer for longer.

The gate and the pool retaining wall are approximately 1m in height, so this area is secure for small toddlers, however, older children can in principle pull themselves up on top of the wall and therefore should be supervised at all times.

Sun loungers, relaxers, small tables and a larger table to seat at least 12 people.

Portable BBQ.

Through a gate at the back of the courtyard is another part of the garden with some lawn and mature trees.

Nearby Attractions & Activities

The village of Asperes is a good base for exploring the local area.

Sommières: approx 7km
A delightful town straight out of the middle ages - in the heart there is a series of small interlinking squares and snaking cobbled streets, lined on both sides with an array of shops from butchers to boutiques and on Saturdays there is the most fabulous colourful market where shopkeepers and stall holders wait to sell you wonderful artisan products and food - from fruit and vegetables, to olives, to bread, fresh pasta and cheeses galore.  Park this side of the Bridge stop and take in the view and walk in it is much the easiest way.

You are in the heart of the wine growing region, olives and olive oil production plus Pelardon goats cheese from the Cevenol and honey from the Vidourle Valley plus, The Cartagene – the “Farmers Aperitif” made from a centuries old recipe.

Calvisson: approx 17km
Well worth a visit on Sunday morning for the market and that quintissential coffee at the Cafe des Sports in the square whilst watching the world go by and absorbing the banter that fills the air.  Newsagent sells UK papers if you want one!
