Les Ballades in Gard, a cottage in Languedoc-Roussillon: Les Ballades exterior

Charming traditional stone house with pool & lovely mountain views - sleeps 2-6

Les Ballades is a charming traditional stone house abutting an imposing Bastide . Recently restored and decorated, Les Ballades has its own entrance & walled gated patio leading to the grounds of the main bastide where our guests have full use of all of the facilities available (see below).

The generous accommodation is divided over 2 floors with 2 ensuite bedrooms on the ground floor, one with its own french-door onto the patio. On the second floor is a large open plan, luminous living, dining and kitchen area opening onto a sunny balcony with amazing mountain & pool views. Underneath is a shady area with a small private garden & BBQ.

In the Bastide grounds there is a communal full size pool with a shallow children's section, a super pool house bar serving light snacks & drinks during Summer, a bbq area with pergola , boules court , children's play area , laundry facilities etc. Ex high season there is a heated spa.

The well-furnished accommodation includes all facilities e.g. dish-washer, microwave, flat screen 32" TV, selection of DVDs, CDs, books etc. & the free WiFi connection covers the entire grounds . There is safe off-road parking for up to 10 cars in total in our 2 carparks .

Les Ballades is situated in the centre of the lovely quiet village of Canaules close to the Cevennes Mountains with many walks in the vineyards which surround the village if you fancy a quiet stroll or more without taking the car. There is horse/pony riding in the village. Mountain walks are only a short drive away as are other beautiful tourist attractions such as Anduze ( the Gateway to the Cevennes ) , the steam train, the Bambouseraie, Uzes & the famous Pont du Gard. The Roman city of Nîmes is just a 35 minute drive away.

Good local food and wine can be found in abundance & most of the nearby vineyards are happy to welcome guests & introduce them to their many excellent wines .

Canaules is in the heart of historical Languedoc. It is a wonderful place to recharge your batteries and come home refreshed all ready to face the world again. Most couples / families who holiday here find they nicely balance seeing and doing lots of interesting things & exploring the area, against long, lazy days by the pool or sitting on the private balcony overlooking the mountain views...once you have seen the sun set here over the Cevennes you will never forget it.

Getting here: Canaules is about 40 mins from Nimes airport, 50 mins from Montpellier airport (both served by Ryanair); 1.30 mins from Marseille (Ryanair, BA, Air France/KLM etc); Easyjet flies to Marseille from Gatwick and from many European destinations to Lyon which is about a 3 hour drive away. The TGV/Thalys from Paris, Brussels, Lille serves Avignon which is just over 1 hour away and many also stop in Nimes.
