Item:163559185193300-year-old traditional Village House currently configured as two apartments sleeping 5 in each, one upstairs and one downstairs - but works also as a complete house with 8 rooms, attic, and large cellar spaces - situated in: St Laurent le Minier (Gard), Languedoc Roussillon, France - approx. 30 miles from Montpellier. Survey from December 2016 available. 152 square metres of accommodation (four bedrooms) 53 square metres of garden/terrace Built on three levels (two habitable, one cellar/basement) For sale fully furnished, ready to occupy/advertised for holiday lettings On each habitable floor there is a full kitchen, a bathroom/shower room, a sitting room, and two bedrooms. Also each apartment has a good-sized terrace on which to sit and eat out. The basement has a good-sized space with a pingpong table, and separate maintenance/wood store areas. The house currently generates income (approx. £4000 per annum, depending on how much family time is reserved) through short holiday lettings to holidaymakers from the UK, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden etc., who come to enjoy the unique swimming in the waterfall and river. It lets both as separate apartments and also as one house. As separate apartments, each apartment is private and self-contained; one apartment could be occupied and the second let; this is a wonderful way to get free family holidays! see: www.southfranceholiday.co.uk (which is our own site) http://www.cheznous.com/295320/st-laurent-le-minier-herault.aspx?propertyType=1&startDate=01/01/0001&flexibleDate=false&duration=7&partySize=2&sleeps1=0&sleeps2=0&sleeps3Plus=0&lat=43.933333&long=3.65&zoom=8&criteria=&orderBy=DistanceASC&tab=list&page=1&type=list&rand=730438&gaz=77654 See Youtube videos: https://youtu.be/vQi4GUwIvc4 - a walk through the house room by room, and: https://youtu.be/laSqiKEJX8U - a video of the amazingly beautiful waterfall, and people bathing in the river. Most of the floor tiles are traditional old red French tiles. The doors and windows are old-fashioned, but in good order – many have hinged exterior shutters fitted. The plumbing and electrics were renewed by professionals shortly after purchase in 1989; the roof terrace constructed and the roof completely replaced by local builders – the work was done in 1989/90 (the terrace a bit later). The cellar has a ping pong table, and the inner cellar is equipped with a workbench, tools, storage for firewood/solid fuel/bikes/wine etc. The house is for sale fully furnished and equipped, ready to let. For any questions, requests for more photos, viewing etc., please contact me by email: email@example.com St-Laurent-le-Minier is a small village of about 360 inhabitants, ten minutes by road from the nearest town, Ganges, and about an hour from Montpellier and its international airport, Frejorgues. Through the village runs the Crenze, a tributary of the river Vis, which is about 800 yards from the village. The Vis is a swift running trout river which, having no towns upstream, and running underground for many miles, is one of the cleanest in France; the pools below its waterfalls (one of which is 8 minute's walk from the house) are perfect for bathing (see youtube video); the waterfall and the river are the reason I bought the house. Two miles downstream the Vis joins the Herault, which is also a good river for bathing, fishing and canoeing. The village is situated in a valley in the foothills of the Cevennes, which is a National Park; it dates back four or five hundred years, and has a bar, a restaurant, a village store which also bakes bread, a post office, and a junior school. Local activities available include: walking, tennis, swimming, canoeing, fishing, horse-riding, golf, nature trails, concerts, speleology, wind-surfing, sailing, hang- and para-gliding, go-karting, archery. Wine-making is also key to the area, with some seriously good wines available, and award-winning cooperatives like St Saturnin.
