A charming and authentic, restored stone village house
The medieval village of Dions is ideally situated between Uzes and Nimes, and at the doorstep of the Cevennes Mountain Range. Generous spaces, 2 green courtyards.
The house is accessed by a private street in the heart of the village. Passing through a garden courtyard, you enter 800 s.f. (75 m2) of enchanting stone-vaulted space, with modern comforts carefully complementing the rustic simplicity. There is a cozy living room with a large fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen, a generous modern bathroom, and a very large bedroom (240 s.f./22 m2) with a wood-burning stove. The bedroom opens through a gracious expanse of wood windows and a french door to a private, stone-walled courtyard. The house stays naturally cool in the summer with its massive stone walls, and has electrical heating, fireplace, and wood stove for cool evenings. The furnishings are tasteful, regional, and very comfortable.
Your hosts, who live in the house above, can point you in the direction of outdoor recreational possibilities in the Gardon River Gorge Natural Preserve (2 k), or in the Cevennes National Park (40k), as well as cultural outings to nearby stone villages, the Pont du Gard (32 k), the beautiful medieval town of Uzes (15 k), the Roman antiquities of Nimes (16k), the pilgrimage site of St. Guilhem le Desert (1 ½ hours drive), local wineries and cheese-making farms, and much more.
If you are a party of 3, we accommodate the third guest with a single bed in the living room. There is a curtain separating the bedroom and the living room.
The entrance courtyard gives access to the exterior stair to the house and terrace above, where the hosts live. The rear courtyard, which opens from the bedroom, is private.
