It is not always easy to find decent properties to rent in South France all year around. Often, houses will only rent from October to May and during the summer season they are reserved for weekly rentals. But here in Gabian, we have two beautiful long term properties which will rent up to 12 months (and further if required). The properties are located on the same small square in the old centre of the wine producing village of Gabian. The village is surrounded by vineyards in all directions and the nearby Faugeres wine appellation produces some of the best wines in the South of France. Gabian is a small village, but it contains a good range of services including a cafe-bar, bar-restaurant, pharmacy, boulangerie, small shop, wine cellar, school and a local Doctor. The nearby town of Roujan (3kms) contains a large range of facilities including, supermarket, garage, high school, medical centre, cafes and restaurants. The coast is 35 mins drive and the surrounding area has some of the best cycling and hiking routes in France. Both properties are owned by the same Interior Designer and you can see the hard work and eye for detail that he has put into restoring both properties.
The property we feature here is the 2 bedroom house. The property across the street is a larger 4 bedroom house (see Gabian property rentals France for more details).
You enter the property into an Entrance Hall (10 m2), with stairs leading up to the first floor. Here you will find a large lounge, a good sized kitchen-diner, an office and a Laundry room and toilet. All the rooms have high ceilings, original tiled flooring and efficient modern electric storage radiators. The lounge is 21 m2 in size and features a nice antique fireplace, 2 large sofas, an armchair and coffee table. The large French windows open out onto a Julliet balcony with views out onto the Square. A set of double doors leads from the lounge to a TV snug (13m2) which features free WiFi internet connection, a TV with UK freeview satellite channels, CD stereo and Ipod radio. Next to the lounge there is also a small home office (5m2), which features a desk and storage space.
The fully equipped kitchen comes with dishwasher, halogen hob, oven, microwave, fridge freezer, toaster and kettle. There is a good sized dining table in the kitchen which can seat 6 people. Next to the kitchen there is a cloakroom / laundry room, which contains a washing machine, vacuum cleaner, iron, ironing board, toilet and wash basin.
On the second floor you will find two good sized bedrooms and a family bathroom. Bedroom 1 is very spacious (24m2) and comes with a large double bed (160 bed). Bedroom 2 is a twin bedroom and is also very well proportioned (16 m2). The twin beds can be joined together to form a super king-size 180 bed). The modern bathroom contains a shower, toilet and wash basin.
Outside: the house is located on a quiet street and overlooks the ancient square of Place Vielle. The square has a lovely fountain and contains a number of parking places. A short walk down the street takes you to the local river, where you will also find additional free parking places. The centre of the village is just 2 minutes walk in the opposite direction.

We had a really nice couple of months at the house. The house was equipped as shown in the advert and John and his partner were lovely.
