About the property

Semi-detached stone village house completely renovated. “Maison La Forge” was originally the home of the blacksmith, build in to a part of the old 12th century castle wall, and you can still find the old arrow slits. Here the blacksmith forged the shoes for the cattle’s that used to work the mines in the area. The open fireplace where he worked in the cave, has now been renovated and can be used for a cozy fire in the evening or to bar-BQ your food if desired. The house consist of a large kitchen dining area with a large open fireplace, 3 large double bedrooms, 2 of which can be equipped with additional comfortable fold out bed’s; 2 new bathrooms with toilet and shower. In the old forge you have the sitting room with the lovely view over the Dourbie valley. Just outside the kitchen you will find the morning terrace, the perfect place for breakfast in the sun and lunch in the shade, and outside the old forge you will find the large south facing sun terrace hanging out over the mountain. A garage is available for you.

About Derrick Wild

We are a couple who visiting the area with our children and with our caravan fell in love with Cantobre and bought the house just next day. We used it has a holiday home for 15 years and then extended the property into the old stables, retired here and started letting our original house for holidays.

We live in the adjacent property and are always on hand to help you.

I was a civil engineer and my wife brought up our family

Derrick Wild purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Derrick Wild chose Nant

We feel in love with village the beautiful village and the river.

Our children now holiday with us here every year and our middle daughter lived with here husband in Nant for 7 years and we have two grand children born in Nant.

What makes this cottage unique

We loved the beautiful views of the village square and down the valley. We like the vibrant summer when during the day the village is busy with visitors but love the evening when it the village is peaceful .

We love the old village houses which have now been renovated and improved.

  • 4 of 5

Séjour très apprécié en famille avec enfants ,Lieu de départ de plusieurs visites loups , bisons ,parc naturel des Cévennes , promenades pédestres , villages perchés ,anciens .

Maison très agréable avec commodités indispensables ,pièces de bonnes superficies , terrasse surplombant une jolie vue de nature environnante, habitation 6 personnes sans problème , 2 personnes en plus avec 2 lits d'appoint à mettre dans 2 des trois chambres sans problème également , lit bébé fourni gentiment si nécessaire ainsi qu'une chaise enfant .Petit village Nant à 4 km de Cantobre lieu de l'habitation,avec boulangerie ,boucher charcutier et petite supérette pour les petites courses si nécessaire .Également des restos , bars sympas , et Petit marché avec produits locaux le mardi . Nant à visiter , petites rues voûtées avec ses artisans artistes et leurs oeuvres ,tout cela avec une population très accueillante .Cantonbre est également à voir ,une petite beauté de constructions en pierres de taille surplombant le vide, avec partout où se porte le regard un paysage verdoyant et superbe , avec une atmosphère de calme et de sérénité .lieu d'observation d'oiseaux rapaces avec expérience des fenêtres ou terrasse même de l'habitation .intéressant linge de lit et de cuisine fournis , chauffage convenable si nécessaire pour toutes les pièces de l'habitation .Horaires arrivé et départ respectés par le propriétaire .

Une jolie rivière serpente tout le long en contrebas , avec accès facile et peut-être rafraîchissante en été .

Conclusion une location à recommander pour qui aime la nature , le calme ,la simplicité ,les promenades de tous les niveaux , et un emplacement privilégié pour les départs de visites de sites environnants . À calculer tout de même pas en km mais en temps , car routes très sinueuses et souvent étroites , mais de grandes beautés de paysages variés .
