The external staircase leads to the upper shaded terrace overlooking the pool. The lounge/kitchen area is entered from this terrace.

The main bedroom and en suite bathroom are on the 2nd floor via an internal staircase. This bedroom offers a superb view of the Cevennes mountains with beautiful sunsets.

It is close to the beautiful historic town of Uzès, the Pont du Gard and the renowned hill village of Lussan. Many other well known places and attractions are within easy reach.

Brouzet les Alès is 1 hour from the Mediterranean with its' stunning beaches and superb seafood. If you love good food, wonderful scenery with a great climate and are thinking of a vacation in an uncrowded part of the South of France then this is the region for you (un beau coin perdu!). Spring and Autumn can be particularly delightful times of the year.

The countryside is beautiful with quaint villages, vineyards and fields of sunflowers and lavender.

The Occitanie region

Situated in the Gard region of France, this area offers stunning scenery. To the west are the Cévennes mountains, snow capped in winter. To the north is the Ardèche region with spectacular gorges and the cool river offering bathing & canoeing. To the south is the Camargue and the Mediterranean and to the east is Provence and La Vaucluse with its' well known attractions.

Brouzet-les-Ales

The Gard region is similiar to Provence, scattered with pretty stone Mas and many quaint little villages. The countryside is beautiful with vineyards, and fields of sunflowers and lavender abounding. C'est la vraie France. The local people are friendly and welcoming. The prices in everyday shops and supermarkets are not excessive. Eating out can be very reasonable and the local wines are excellent value for money and quality. It is an ideal holiday destination for families. Within easy reach of the house are:

Le Pont du Gard, an impressive Roman aqueduct.

Arles. This was home to Van Gogh and has a well restored Roman arena and theatre.

Nîmes was an important Roman city with a superb arena that is still used for concerts and bull fights.

Orange has a Roman theatre still used for operas and a 2,000 year old Roman Arc de Triomphe.

Uzès is our favourite place. This is a beautiful town with many shops and restaurants There is a popular Saturday market and children of all ages will enjoy the Haribo sweet museum (& factory shop) just outside the town.

The Camargue. Famously home to wild white horses, pink flamingos and black bulls. Go riding in the countryside or along the beach.

Aigues-Mortes. This is a walled medieval town with an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants.

Sète. This fishing town is the best place for sea-food in the region. Sète is the centre of joute or jousting from boats. It is worth a trip to see this on a weekend day.

Avignon. This was the residency of the Papacy in exile in the 14th century. The Pope's Palace survives. This is an attractive city with impressive city walls and many shops and restaurants. Only half of the famous bridge survives. ("Sur la pont d'Avignon etc.")

Châteauneuf-du-Pape was the Pope's vineyards and home to the famous wine of the region.

The Ardèche. The stunning Gorges to the North are "a must do". Canoeing is very popular and the natural stone arch known as Pont d'Arc is the most famous feature of this region.

Restaurants. There are many good restaurants a short drive from Brouzet les Alès. These range from Michelin starred fine dining to simple restaurants in quiet villages. There are restaurants in spectacular settings and port side seafood restaurants offering the freshest fare. Not all of them cost a King's ransom. We list our favourites with telephone numbers and directions in The Visitor's Book.

Other Places to Visit.

We have listed only the principal nearby attractions. There are pretty villages, deep gorges, cool rivers, water parks, fishing lakes, caves, steam railways and many museums and galleries to discover. The spectacular Millau viaduct (taller than the Eiffel Tower and designed by Norman Foster) is nearby. Again some of these are detailed in The Visitor's Book.

Rising behind Brouzet les Alès is Mont Bouquet. This is a handy landmark to guide you home. The summit is a spectacular view point and on a clear day you may just see the sea "shimmering"to the South.

How to get around.

A car and a decent map are the basic essentials.

“ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2013

Beautiful gite in a perfect location -Spotlessly clean and extremely helpful hosts who helped to make our holiday one of the best!

“Holiday in 2010/2011”

Reviewed 22 May 2012

We have stayed at Le Nid du Moineau two years running. We had a wonderful time on both occasions. The gite was clean and had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. The kids loved the pool which was kept very clean. We loved the views from the balcony and looked forward to a glass of wine each evening watching the sun go down. The area is very quiet but there are some great places to visit nearby including Uzes which was our favourite place. We would strongly recommend the gite for a holiday.
