This adorable village house is located on a quiet square overlooking the old fort in the medieval village of St Laurent la Vernède, 10 minutes from Uzès. The house was completely renovated in 2010, adding modern amenities with an old-fashioned style. This designer chic house accommodates up to 6 people, but for a couple, it is the perfect setting for a romantic getaway. The front terrace looks onto a pedestrian-only village square. The house is walking distance to the bakery, restaurant, pétanque court and weekly produce market. It has one bedroom upstairs, a loft above the living room and a daybed in the living room. Downstairs, there is one large bathroom with an Italian shower and separate toilet room. The entire house has been beautifully decorated in a Provencal style and is well heated during the winter.

You enter the house directly into the living room, which is comfortably furnished to make you feel right at home. It has an old stone fireplace, comfortable couch and reading chairs, an iPod player and a shabby-chic decor. There are many windows to let the natural light in. The kitchen is located downstairs and is well equipped with a fridge/freezer, gas stove, oven, dishwasher, coffee maker and washing machine. There is a clothes rack inside and clothesline outside to dry your clothes in the warm breeze. There is a dining table for up to 6 people in the kitchen for cooler days or evenings. Just outside the living room is the terrace, where you will find a barbecue, and a table and chairs for outdoor dining. The terrace is in a lovely, shady setting, surrounded by plants and flowers. Outside lights softly illuminate the terrace, for a decidely romantic atmosphere!

Idyllic little Cottage !

  • 4 out of 5
What a pretty little house ! We arrived and were warmly welcomed, by Dominique, who showed us around the cottage and suggested various places to visit.
The house was very clean and well equipped and full of all kinds of wonderful curios that added to its charm. The beds were extremely comfortable with good linen and the sofas cosy and plump with cushions.
An electric kettle in the kitchen would be a good idea and some attention to the bottom tread of the bathroom staircase. The two terracotta steps are a little deceptive,especially at night !
I'm sure that a couple of comfortable steamer chairs and some planting, would make the little terrace , to the front of the house,more appealing. It could be a lovely place to sit, with a glass or two of wine,after a day exploring local markets and glorious countryside. However, the table and chairs provided, are adequate, but not relaxing.
We should like to thank everyone who has helped to make our stay in St. Laurent, so special. Wall to wall sunshine and magnificent scenery, did their part, but the cottage was a perfect little haven. It should be noted that the village bar/ cafe, although open at lunchtime, is only open on Friday and Saturday evenings. So for those wanting to eat out locally, a car journey, to another village, will be necessary.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comment! We really enjoyed getting to meet you and your family. The beginning of the rental season was a bit hectic trying to get the house ready, but now we have redone the terrace with new flowers, plants and a hammock. We have purchased 2 folding lounge chairs that are available for renters to use on the terrace or on the small square just in front of the terrasse. The square is better if you are looking for sun, as the terrace is shaded by trees. No matter where, it is calm and relaxing inside the fortress walls.

Großartiges Leben in einem alten Fort

  • 5 out of 5
Wer in einem charmanten, ruhigen und überschaubaren Fort leben möchte und Lust hat den Geist der Vergangenheit zu atmen ist hier genau richtig. Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit und wurden von Dominique und Christophe (zwei ganze reizende und sehr positive Personen) via mail-Kontakt gut betreut. Unsere Nachfragen wurden flott beantwortet. Unsere Nachbarn waren sehr kommunikativ und wir hatten das Glück in der Zeit unseres Aufenthaltes eine kl. Katzenfamilie betreuen zu dürfen. Die Wohnung/das Haus entspricht den Bildern, bzw. dem Film, ein sehr stimmiges, pitoreskes Konzept und für uns 2 Personen vollkommen ausreichend. Für eine Familie mit ein oder zwei Kindern, ab 6 Jahren ist sicher ebenfalls ausreichend Platz. Einzig die Vernadastühle, auch wenn sie stimmig ins Konzept passen sind für einen längeren Entspannungstag Popo-unfreundlich.
Die Gegend ist sehr reizvoll, es gibt neben den Weinreben und -verkostungen, viele, spannende Ausflugsmöglichkeiten (Uzes, Avignon, L´Isle sur-la-Sorgue, St. Remy, u.v.m.) und unsere morgendliche Rettung waren die sehr leckeren Croissants (neben anderen Köstlichkeiten der französischen Backkunst) der Dorfbäckerei, die fußläufig zu erreichen ist. Alles in Allem hatten wir eine großartige Zeit und würden gerne wiederkommen. Das ist doch das beste Lob! A bientot...

Owner's Response: Hello Ilka & Georg. Unfortunately, I do not understand German, but we thank you for the 5 stars! It was so nice to meet you in June. It is wonderful to have people renting a house that they absolutely love and feel at home in. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will be back to visit soon! Your little kitten is waiting for you to come back:)) À bientôt...

Ein Haus für alle, die außergewöhnliches suchen

  • 4 out of 5
Dieses Ferienhaus ist wirklich etwas besonderes. Bei unserer Ankunft fühlten wir uns sofort ein paar Jahrhunderte zurückversetzt. Dies heißt nicht, dass die Möbilierung auch dem entspricht. Im Gegenteil, die eingestellten Bilder geben den Charakter dieses Hauses sehr gut wieder und die Einrichtung jedes einzelnen Raumes lässt viel Liebe zum Detail erkennen. Ebenso ist alles, was man zum täglichen Gebrauch benötigt, vorhanden. Die Aufteilung der Räume, ist durch die Tatsache, dass dieses Ferienhaus aus eigentlich 2 Häusern besteht, ebenso außergewöhnlich wie die Lage. Wie auf den Bildern nicht sehr gut zu erkennen, befindet sich dieses Objekt in einem alten Fort. Die Bewohner dieses Forts sind sehr höflich, nett und zuvorkommmend. Auch haben sie für die Gäste der Ferienwohnung die Historie der besonderen Wohnanlage auf verschiedene Sprachen verfasst und scheuen sich nicht, Fragen zu beantworten.
Kleines Manko dieses Hauses war für uns die wirklich kleine Sitzgelegenheit auf der "Terrasse". Außerdem ist dieses Ferienhaus für ältere Menschen oder jene mit Gehschwierigkeiten nicht geeignet. Durch die oben schon erwähnte außergewöhnliche Aufteilung ist vielTeppensteigen angesagt!
Das Objekt befindet sich in ruhiger Lage, Sehenswürdigkeiten wie Pont du Gard (Achtung! Sehr teurer Parkplatz, da die Besichtigung gleich mit eingerechnet wird +18€), Uzes uvm. sind jedoch gut zu erreichen.

Charme et tranquillité

  • 5 out of 5
On se sent immédiatement bien dans cette maison à la déco soignée et chaleureuse, on se plait à admirer les objets de déco, à se lover dans les coussins, à parcourir la vieille carte de France accrochée au mur et à explorer ses nombreux recoins, à monter et à descendre à travers les pièces bien agencées. Pas de bruit si ce n'est le chant des oiseaux et d'un hibou la nuit, ou encore des enfants qui jouent à l'abri du fort... Le village est bien situé pour aller faire un tour à Uzès et pour découvrir la région (la bambouseraie, la rando dans les gorges du Gardon...) et pour toute question Dominique et Christophe sont là pour nous aider. Je recommande particulièrement pour tous ceux qui recherchent calme, charme et romantisme !

Au calme...

  • 5 out of 5
Au calme dans le fort, on en avait besoin... Super déco! On se croirait dans un magasine. Tout confort à l'intérieur et hamac à l'extérieur, bien équipée. Le wifi fonctionne bien. Accès pour la marché à 50m de la maison, il suffit de sortir du fort.

Very Amazing Place! You have to see it to believe

  • 5 out of 5
First of all, let me just say that I'm from North America and always wanted to visit France.
We booked this house online because it looked so cute and I thought, very french.
The images and description does not truly show its uniqueness and beauty. When I first went in and took a look around I was so thrilled! The house was way beyond my expectations! The house is an adventure and an experience in itself ! This is an accommodation like I've never seen before! Its in the middle a medieval town, with all the charms of old France and the feeling of being in a modern interior magazine at the same time!
It was April when we stayed there, so we were using the fire place every evening, enjoying local wine and cheese. We felt as though we could stay there forever.
The locals were very friendly and its very well located for daily excursions.
We look forward to going back.
