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.
No smoking in house or on terraces. Pets are negotiable. Security deposit required. Linens included, but you must wash them before you leave.
