Location description from owner

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

This region of France stretches from Provence in the east down to the borders of Spain in the south. It has 220 km of sandy beaches along the Mediterranean, which see 300 days of sunshine a year., including the unspoilt dunes at L'Espiguette and the modern resorts at La Grande Motte.Average maximum daily temperatures in summer are above 30 degrees centigrade. Languedoc-Roussillon has more UNESCO World Heritage sites and monuments than any other region of France - from the wilds of the Cevennes National Park to the Roman bridge of Pont du Gard. It has vibrant cities, like Montpellier, with the biggest network of pedestrian streets in France, and Nimes with its Roman amphitheatre and stunning mediaeval villages like St Guilhem de Desert. It also has vast natural spaces, where wild boar roam and eagles soar and night skies burst with stars. Languedoc-Roussillon includes the departements of Herault, Gard, Aude and Lozere. It is the largest wine growing region of France.

Quissac

This area of the departement du Gard lies between the high Cevennes and the coastal plain of the Mediterranean. It is rich in vineyards interspersed with garrigue - natural brush with evergreen oak, juniper and aromatic thyme. Towns and villages are rich in history - for example the bridge over the river in Sommieres was built by the Roman Emperor Tiberius. Possibilities for canoeing, river swimming, cycling, horse riding, fishing, golf and walking are plentiful and fine, affordable restaurants abound.The area around the house is tranquil. The song of nightingales fills the night air in spring. In summer, the days hum with cicadas while the night is punctuated only by the call of the 'Petit Duc', the Scops Owl.Some fascinating places to visit within easy reach include the Camargue - vast wetlands where white horses, black bulls and flamingoes are in abundance; Avignon, ancient seat of the Pope before Rome, and Aigues Mortes, a medieval fortified city abutting the Mediterranean.
