With the historical village of Vauvert just a short walk away, this property is the perfect location for exploring the stunning area of Camargue.
Whilst offering a charming holiday home for relaxing by the swimming pool.

The swimming pool area is accessed from the stone steps that lead down from the house.
Here guests will enjoy the summer kitchen, for cooking and dining as the children splash around in the pool.
Inside, the beautifully tiled floors help to make the villa inviting and spacious, where cooks can make the most of the well equipped kitchen using the local ingredients.
Relax with a morning coffee or evening aperitif on the terrace, with French windows opening out to here from the lovely downstairs bedroom.
Three more bedrooms can be found upstairs, with the whole property furnished with character and tradition in mind.
Vauvert is the nearby town where you will find a number of restaurants to dine at and a variety of sites to explore, such as the clock tower and fountain.
Aigues-Mortes is just 15km away and is a beautiful visit, with its medieval walls and red salt water lagoons.
The nearby small town of Vauvert has a handful of restaurants and some pretty sites such as the clock tower and fountain, it’s an ideal place to wander down to for lunch or a pleasant evening out. A little further by car is the impressive and much visited town of Aigues-Mortes (20km) with its medieval walls and red water lagoons producing superior quality salt. In the height of the summer avoid the tourists by visiting in the evening, walk around the walls for a great view of the town, salt marshes and canals and then find a nice restaurant or bar in one of the quieter pretty streets in the old town.
The main highlight of this area has to be the stunning landscapes and natural beauty of the Camargue, which are all just a short drive away. A beautiful combination of land, lagoon and sea with pink flamingos, wild white horses, rice fields and endless wild countryside and beaches, this natural park covers 900 square kilometres of land. Endless activities can be offered from horse-riding, trekking, quad biking and jeep tours across this diverse and unique area. You can also see the traditional and interesting farms where the Gardiens (cowboys) raise bulls for the bullrings of Languedoc and Spain.
Should you wish to spend a day at the sea the long, sandy beaches of L’Espiguette (35km) are within thirty minutes drive as well as the pretty seaside town and beaches of Sainte-Maries-de-la-Mer (38km). If you go even more off the beaten track you will be able to find some of Languedoc’s most beautiful, wild beaches, many backed by beautiful pine trees and endless sand dunes.
The city of Nimes (16km) is also worthy of a visit with its fine collection of Roman remains including Maison Carree, one of the best preserved Roman temples in the country. Enjoy the city’s cafes, bars and restaurants in the tree lined boulevards or narrow streets of the charming old town or head to the city’s gardens, Jardins de la Fontaine, for some shady relaxation. Just north of the city is the stunning Roman aqueduct, Pont du Gard, now a UNESCO World Heritage site.
