Le Patio: Village house with flowered courtyard near Sommières


Demeure house with courtyard in the center of a Gard village halfway between Nîmes and Montpellier – A perfect choice for tourism project

Love at first sight… for a PATIO?! Yes! Dominique and Yann were looking for somewhere to live in the South of France, then magic took place. As soon as they entered the vast patio they fell for its welcoming meridional charm, the Andalusian basin over-shadowed by a vine trellis. What better for a change of life than the cool calm of the place?!

Life on the patio: breakfast in spring on a stone terrace, cooling ones feet in the pool during summer heat or again a glass with friends in the cool of the evening on the wood deck beside the enormous Yucca.

A few kilometers from Sommières the stone building has known many lives; former farm, presbyter then restaurant, a perfect choice for a tourist hotel.

Dominique and Yann develop their project, re-think the decoration of the rooms so as to receive friends and guests. The house has EIGHT bedrooms! The other rooms have been conserved as they were for the pleasure of those who appreciate old stone walls and friendly small spaces.

The dwelling is situated in the center of a Gard village halfway between Nîmes and Sommières. It measures 320m2 (and additional technical areas). It is centered around the patio which leads off to all the many other rooms:

  • The north wing: on the first floor a passageway leads to three independent suites, on the ground floor a kitchen/dining-room for guests and at garden-level yet another suite giving onto the patio.
  • The south wing: the ground floor consists of a small drawing room, a dining room, a kitchen with its dedicated technical space and another small living room with a fireplace. On the first floor two suites (one gives on to a passageway) and an office/spare bedroom.
  • The west wing: the ground floor has a small living room with a big fireplace, its vaulted opening giving onto the courtyard, upstairs there is another suite.

There remain multiple possibilities the building lends itself to a tourism project such as a guest house/restaurant.

Nîmes and Sommières: 20 mins drive, motorway entry: 5mins, Montpellier: 20mins, Avignon: 45mins, seaside: 30 mins, Uzès and its traditional market: 50mins, Bambouseraie of Anduze: 1h.

Our favorite for the PATIO obviously! You can just imagine yourself glass-in-hand with friends. A house for all lovers of an old-fashion welcome.
