Le Prieuré holiday home to rent France with pool - Our Opinion
Last visited: Jan 2019. This beautiful hill-top holiday home in Southern France is the perfect spot if you are looking for a quiet and peaceful family holiday in rural France. It is perfect for children - the swimming pool will keep them entertained and there is a fabulous tree-climbing centre just 500m away. Other excursions include canoeing in the nearby river, taking in the markets at the nearby villages of Barjac and Lussan and visiting the historical towns of Anduze and Uzés. The Mediterranean beaches are 1 hour 15 mins drive. No matter what you do on your holiday though, you will never forget the stunning views first thing in the morning and at sunset!

The Priory holiday home to rent France, is located in the North-Western corner of the Gard department of France, bordering the Ardeche and Lozere departments. 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 900 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.
The local villages of Molieres-sur-Ceze has a population of around 1,500 people and is surrounded by dense forest and was a former mining village. Today the village is a popular place for holidaymakers looking to explore the local countryside on bike or on foot. The local area has some of the best cycling routes and hiling trails in France.
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. The town became an important refuge for French Protestants (Huguenots) during the 16th Century. The town contains a lot of shops, larger supermarkets, restaurants, banks, DIY stores and services for the region.
