A CHARMING, SERENE HOUSE IN A MEDIEVAL VILLAGE JUST MINUTES FROM UZÈS

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in St-Laurent-la-Vernede - La Maison des Barris

Stone house from the 15th century - 2 bedrooms - 1 bathroom - in medieval fort

Watch the video of the house on http://www.youtube.com/embed/HWYU49IBMcI?rel=0

La Maison des Barris (Occitan for fortified walls) is located within the Old Fort area of the medieval village of St Laurent la Vernède. The restoration of the house in 2000 was done in such a way as to keep the authenticity of its 500 years of history. Inside you will find antique furniture, old stone walls, ancient tiles and massive beams, all the while enjoying the comforts of modern living. The kitchen is equipped with a microwave, gas stove, refrigerator and all that you need for making your vacation meals. The bathroom has a shower and a separate toilet space. Both are located on the first floor.

The shaded entrance is enhanced with plantings of herbs and a grape arbor. It faces south so that in winter it is sunny and inviting and in summer cool and relaxing. A table and 4 chairs are there for outdoor meals. There is an antique farm table and 6 chairs for dining inside. The living room has a vaulted ceiling, comfortable seating and is heated by a Norwegian Jotul wood stove. The stove is very efficient, and capable of heating the entire first floor. Also on the first floor is a 'music room' with a Kawai piano and a guitar which you may play, and a daybed. In the office space on this same floor, there are books, a desk, WiFi and telephone. In summer the thick, ancient walls keep the interior cool and pleasant.

Upstairs you will find a loft area with a TV/DVD, stacks of books, magazines and DVDs, a comfortable sofa, and an extra bed. The master bedroom has a large bed (160cm) and a window with a window seat from which to view the beautiful courtyard of the fort. Off from this room is another bedroom with three single beds, which is perfect for children.

The public area in front of the house is for pedestrians only so the house is quiet and children can play freely in there. A bakery, small grocery and restaurant are within walking distance. The surrounding areas are ideal for walking or biking. There is also a winery where you can go wine tasting and buy local organic wine! The village is perfectly located between Uzès and the beginning of the Cevennes mountains.

This is an ideal house for one or two couples, couples with children, musicians, avid readers or writers, or just vacationers seeking tranquility and authenticity. Truly, a perfect place to find inspiration and rest!

The house is not handicap equipped and therefore not suitable for people with mobility problems, as the stairs leading to the upstairs bedroom are quite steep. A barrier for children is at the top of the stairs.

If you are interested in reserving this property, please send your address and phone number so we can send you a rental agreement. The agreement will need to be signed and returned via email or post along with a 25% downpayment of the total rental rate. The remaining rent is due 15 days prior to your arrival. We will send you payment requests using a secured, credit card payment system through the Homeaway website. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Cleaning fee 80€.

Maison et site très agréables.

  • 5 out of 5
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le calme, la douceur et le charme un peu suranné de cette maison située dans un fort médiéval .
Les propriétaires ont su allier un confort moderne et le respect des matériaux d'origine. Rien de bling bling ici et l'ensemble nous a plu par l'harmonie heureuse entre le site, la maison, le mobilier et la décoration.
La cuisine est bien équipée et ce fut un plaisir d'y préparer de délicieux plats avec les produits locaux achetés dans les marchés environnants et dégustés sur le joli perron qui donne sur la place tranquille du fort.
La visite des sites historiques, les promenades dans la garrigue sont nombreuses quand on veut sortir du huis clos intimiste.
C'est une maison qui a une âme, celle des propriétaires mais aussi de tous ceux qui l'ont habitée à travers les siècles.
On a envie d'y revenir.

Un véritable havre de paix, plein de cachet!

  • 5 out of 5
Cette maison est idéale pour prendre le temps de se ressourcer. Très pratique avec sa grande cuisine donnant à la fois sur la terrasse et la salle à manger, elle offre assez d'espace pour que chacun y trouve du calme... Quel bonheur de se laisser bercer par le joli fort qui l'abrite! Lecture, promenades champêtres, sorties à Uzès, notre semaine là-bas est passée bien trop vite!
