La Porche is a delightful stone farm cottage, set amongst the chestnut & pine-covered hills of the Cevennes region near Le Vigan. It has been converted into a well-equipped modern house, while retaining the character of its stone walls and rough timber beams. Our 1.7 hectare property borders a river with oak wood, an equestrian centre and an organic 'cevenol sweet onion' farm. The house has its own private entrance and is independent of the main house. It has a 8m x 3.5m swimming pool with sun all day + a wonderful shady terrace for barbeques.

Additional Location Information

La Porche is situated near the village of Breau in the Cevennes. Nearest major towns are Montpellier, Nimes, Uzes.

*Local markets
Nearest small town is Le Vigan with an excellent lively market every Saturday, and a small producers' market (mainly organic) every Tuesday morning from June until the end September. Ganges, a 30 min drive, has one of the best local markets every Friday morning.

*Food and wine
Local produce is excellent, and much of it is farmed organically (see section on markets in our region). The four products for which the Cevennes are famous are sweet onions, apples, chestnuts and pelardon, a small goat cheese available at many different stages of maturity. When you don't fancy cooking there are several good restaurants in the area, and we can provide evening meals by arrangement. Languedoc (the wider region) is the largest wine-producing area in France, and home to many excellent wines, both red and white, many of them organic. The region has suffered a certain stigma as the land of quantity rather than quality, but this is no longer the case. You will find Languedoc wines are often very good value compared to those from the more famous regions of France, and we can recommend a wine shop in Le Vigan run by a friendly and enthusiastic expert.

*Natural history
The biodiversity of this area is unusually high, due to its location spanning both geological and climatic frontiers, and a low human population density. The Cevennes National Park is designated by UNESCO as a world heritage biosphere reserve.

*Walking
The Cevennes has the highest concentration of GR (Grande Randonnée, long distance walks) in the whole of France, and these routes are clearly marked and sign-posted. In addition there are countless other paths, some marked, others not, which can be followed
