Description

Les Lis is a three-bedroom, 500-year-old stone house perched on a steep hill in the quiet medieval town of St-Bresson. The house and village offers superb views of the valley Vis and the peaks of the Séranne and Pic Saint Loup. When we conceived of Les Lis, we envisioned a place where people could go to feed their senses and escape the hectic and commercial emphasis of modern day life. Like many houses in the Languedoc area, the exact date of its construction is unknown, as the records were lost during the French Revolution.

The spacious house (laid out on 4 levels) is well appointed with quality furnishings and original art. Enjoy cooking in a fully equipped kitchen and a choice of dining one on of two terraces or in the traditional dining room which has been used to feed as many as 18 for a sit down meal!

Hike the various mountain trails or relax with a glass of superb local wine on one of two terraces and enjoy the views. A short drive down a picturesque and windy

Hike the various mountain trails or relax with a glass of superb local wine on one of two terraces and enjoy the views. A short drive down a picturesque and windy road will take you to the bottom of the hill, where the river runs through the small village of St.-Laurent-le-Minier. There is a popular bathing spot for locals and tourists alike at the Cascade de la Vis, with several waterfalls and a deep cavern which allows the bravest to dive into the water from a medieval arched bridge. Canoeing, horseback riding, cycling are just a few of the outdoor pleasures you can enjoy. The area is a mecca for artists and writers—and studios and small galleries abound. And of course, the region is known for it's excellent wines and goat cheeses.

Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

With mountains and gorges (Robert Louis Stevenson's Travels on a Donkey took place in the Cévennes mountains), rivers like the Hérault and the Orb and the Aude, extinct volcanoes, manmade marvels like Carcassonne, Aigue Mortes and La Grande Motte, the region can justly claim to be one of Europe's jewels.

Moving north (inland) from Montpellier, the Languedoc region, as this part of the northern Hérault is called, boasts a panorama of dry limestone hills and plateaus with sparse vegetation. Garrigue is an old Occitan word for the holly-oak, and these scrubby would-be trees grow everywhere, along with thyme, lavender-scented maquis, olive trees and the everpresent grapevine.The windblown landscapes continue all the way down to the sea and are as romantic as Provence but with a fraction of the tourists and without the chilly effects of the mistral.

The Languedoc boasts of some of the best wines in the southern region and is quickly becoming one of the brightest stars in the French wine firmament. It is a huge wine region that has been divided into 12 specialized micro-areas, or terroirs. Vineyards dot the landscape. The Pic-St-Loup, a magnificent cliff-rimmed double-humped mountain, is home to several outstanding vineyards. Our favourites include the Chateau d’Hortus and Mas Bruguiere.

St Bresson is a gateway between the northern Hérault and the southern Cévennes— topographically two very diverse regions. While the northern Hérault is scrub and desert, the Cévennes is one of the leading agricultural regions of France, boasting forests full of chestnut trees, rolling hills and valleys, small fertile streams, and rich dark soil.

Saint Bresson

The area around St-Bresson offers many, many things to do—so many that naming all of them is impossible. What we’ve done on our personal web is to give you an idea of the types of activities you can do and the types of places you can see in the region.

Please see our web (click on the tab WHAT TO DO for ideas.) There you will find a list of Market Days, canoeing and kayaking, hiking, antiquing, arts, beaches and swimming spots, places to see, and vineyards. Our personal web is quiet extensive and will keep you informed and entertained!

“Amazing property with awesome views and garden.”

Reviewed 27 May 2013

This place was much better than I could have imagined! And I have a good imagination! Driving up to this medieval village, we were stopped by rush hour traffic which consisted of sheep and goats crossing the road! The village consisted of many ancient stone houses. The house that we stayed in appeared to be the best maintained in the whole village. The exterior had a wall of wisteria and roses that were in full bloom. All the windows had tasteful flower boxes and there was a beautiful garden in the rear. The views from the house included lovely mountain greenery and the village medieval church. Inside this ancient home were all the modern conveniences, yet they did not distract from the 500 year old charm of this place. A wood burning fireplace hit the spot on cooler days. Sometimes, the most difficult decision was to figure out which deck to hang out or dine on! There were a couple of larger towns down the hill which provided all the necessities and had wonderful market days to purchase delicious foods, beverages and about anything else you could think of! I would highly recommend this location. The owner of this property was extremely helpful and professional.
