About this listing

Beautiful, comfortable house in a peaceful, bucolic village setting. House comes fully equipped, including linens, dishwasher, washer and dryer. Village wifi available. This house is in countryside.

The space

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 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.

Winter rental rate discounts for minimum of 3 months. (Available Sept-May only) Please inquire. Rate is €800 mo plus utilities.

We spent six weeks at Leesteffy's wonderful place and much enjoyed our stay. The pictures give an accurate impression of the house, and the area, too, is beautiful (a part of the Cévennes): Ideal for biking and canoeing (less so for swimming, though), and still close enough to see Avignon or Montpellier in a day trip. We did not meet Leesteffy in person, but she is always available via e-mail, and there is a contact person in the village, too.

Lee had her caretaker, Madeleine, meet us upon our arrival in Saint Bresson, a picturesque, quiet village. Everything went very smoothly, and Madeleine even arranged for us to purchase some food from the village hall, where a hunting party was going on and wild boar stew was being served, along with all the trimmings. We arrived hungry, so this was a life-saver! The house itself is everything we wanted and needed: modern conveniences side by side with rustic French beauty. The beds were super-comfortable, the furniture lovely; the entire place was extremely well kept and cared for. The weather was so perfect, we ate breakfast on the small terrace every day. The nearby swimming holes, markets, towns, etc that Lee directed us to were fantastic. Highly recommended!

Nous avons passé un superbe séjour dans ce petit village, la maison est belle, bien décorée et avons eu beaucoup de plaisir à y vivre pendant 2 semaines. Nous avons rencontré Madeleine qui a été très sympa et discrète tout au long de notre séjour. Les seuls ponts négatifs sont: - l’accès assez difficile au village, la route sinueuse et étroite (environ 7 km) et pas facile de croiser avec notre berline. - nous avons eu des travaux durant notre séjour sur l’église juste à coté, du lundi au vendredi nous avons eu beaucoup de bruit sur la terrasse. - l'appartement n'était pas très propre à notre arrivée toiles d’araignées aux fenêtres, hotte de ventilation pleine de graisse.
