This area of France is collectively known as The Cevennes and it is classified as a French National Park. The surrounding area is largely unspoiled and provides breathtaking scenery.

The region first came to international prominence through the work of the Scottish writer, Robert Louis Stephenson. In 1879 he published his book "Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes", in which he describes his journey through the region and his many stays at the local monasteries.

The nearby Monastery dates back over 500 years and the last monks left in 1787 when the Monastery was dissolved during the French Revolution. The Monastery contained a bakery, brewery, library, auditorium and chapel. Today it has been renovated and turned into a holiday centre, featuring painting holidays, cookery classes and singing courses. It has also been used as a location for weddings.

Popular local activities include canoeing in the local river (River Cèze) and an extensive tree-climbing centre which takes you through the canopy of the local forest. This is located just 500m from the house.

The nearest large town is Alès which is just a short drive away. Alès was historically a mining town, as well as an important centre for silk weaving.
