Summary

L'Ancienne Magnanerie (sleeps 8) occupies a beautiful stone residence in the sleepy hamlet of Bézut, close to Uzès. The property has been magnificently restored, resulting in a perfect juxtaposition of historic and contemporary features.

Walk or cycle and enjoy the best of Languedoc vistas direct from your front door, the stunning distant Cevennes to one side and the adjacent vineyards to the other, or stay put and relax amongst the aromas of the spring flowered countryside, jasmin and rose; the tranquility broken only by the sounds of birdsong and the trickle of fountain water. Take an evening aperitif and witness the stunning sunsets.

Uzès on the doorstep and within easy reach are the vast sandy beaches of the Mediterranean, the Côtes du Rhone, the cultural sites of historic significance such as Avignon and the Pont du Gard, and the cosmopolitan towns of Montpelier, Nimes, Orange and Arles. A perfect spot!

Detail

L'Ancienne Magnanerie is a beautifully restored stone residence with uninterrupted and breathtaking views over the local vineyards and rolling countryside. Step through the large wooden gates and find yourself in the beautifully landscaped secluded courtyard, the trickle of the fountain mingles with the birdsong and you are struck by the scent of fresh flora and fauna of the region. Here also are 2 beautiful stone vaulted arches, providing shade and a relaxation area during hot sunny days.

Indoors, the modern conveniences blend perfectly with the original features, which add their own special charm. The tasteful neutral interior décor provides an elegant setting and enhances the calm atmosphere. Up a short stone staircase from the courtyard, the first floor reception leads into a light and airy dining and kitchen area, which itself is *a chef's paradise with a fabulous La Cornu range (see notes below). The fully equipped kitchen connects to the dining area, where there is ample space around a large dining table and a doorway leads directly to the rear garden and swimming pool with stunning vineyard views – the real 'coup de coeur' of this property! Here also is the fully functional summer kitchen, a covered area with a large table and benches, cooker, sink, fridge and BBQ – this is a home where the limewashed walls create a seemless motion between the living areas and where indoor and outdoor spaces coexist.

Off the dining area is the grand uncluttered sitting room which has an air of sophistication with its high beamed ceilings and log burning fire, overlooked by the mezzanine library - a relaxing space in which to unwind. The shuttered windows on either side of the sitting room look out onto the beautiful surroundings, at once endless vineyards and rolling countryside and the distant Cevennes.

The serene master bedroom with king size bed and its vast – and grand! – en-suite bath and shower room, completes the first floor.

The four generous luxury bedroom suites, all with very comfortable beds and cotton bed linen, are designed to offer flexible accommodation for up to 10 people.

Upstairs, two of the three bedrooms have en suite bath or shower rooms and there is another shower room for shared use. One bedroom with an en-suite bathroom can be arranged as a king-sized double bedroom, twin bedroom or as a bedroom for three, according to your requirements, and another which has a double and a single bed (and an en-suite shower room) may also be used as a twin or family room. On this floor is a further twin bedded room.

*A Chef's Paradise! Included in the spacious and well equipped kitchen is a top of the range 'cuisinière' - a La Cornue Range Oven - part of a prestigious line of legendary kitchen ranges. Constructed with luxurious materials, La Cornue expertise, exclusive vaulted ovens, professional burners and the hot plate, the range offers uncompromised culinary performance, as good as the very best professional equipment.
