Mas de Tornac

Introduction

Charming and traditional 17th century country home set in a tiny hamlet amongst 20 acres of private grounds.

Original features throughout and real Southern-French authenticity; olive and lavender grove and large Mediterranean garden lead out to open garrigues and woodland with lovely walks and spectacular scenery.

Outer and inner courtyard with dining area and front; lawned garden with shaded dining terrace and BBQ.

Private pool 13m x 7m with sun terrace and loungers.

Table tennis.

Accommodation over two main floors with two kitchens, living and dining rooms with UK TV channels and Wi-Fi and 6 bedrooms with 4 bathrooms.

5 km from Anduze in the Gard department, 40 minutes from Nîmes.

Anduze has a large supermarket, fortified tower and a wonderful market on Thursdays. All shops and amenities including restaurants.

In summer months there are free music shows in Alès. The Saturday Market in the Provençal town of Uzes is a place to admire the architecture and people-watch while being dazzled by the wares.

The Pont du Gard is the largest surviving Roman aqueduct, while the Roman amphitheatre at Les Arènes puts on excellent summer concerts.

Beaches;
The best beaches are to be found down on the Camargue, which is about 40 minutes away. It is worth exploring but Le Grau-du-Roi and Les Espigettes are safe and sandy. Les Espigettes is generally regarded as one of the best beaches in France and is worth a visit. It is reasonably unspoilt. Also recommended is the beach at Maguelene South of Montpellier reached via Palavas-les-Flots.

Location

The property is situated in a very small hamlet, 5 km from Anduze in the Gard department, 40 minutes from Nîmes.

Anduze has a large supermarket, fortified tower and a wonderful market on Thursdays. All shops and amenities including restaurants.

In summer months there are free music shows in Alès. The Saturday Market in the Provençal town of Uzes is a place to admire the architecture and people-watch while being dazzled by the wares.

The Pont du Gard is the largest surviving Roman aqueduct, while the Roman amphitheatre at Les Arènes puts on excellent summer concerts.

The nearest golf is at Ribautes les Tavernes (9 holes) or Nîmes Vacquerolles (18 holes), and there are miles of sandy Mediterranean beaches. And all about there is wonderful countryside for walking or enjoying from the car.

Beaches
The best beaches are to be found down on the Camargue, which is about 40 minutes away. It is worth exploring but Le Grau-du-Roi and Les Espigettes are safe and sandy. Les Espigettes is generally regarded as one of the best beaches in France and is worth a visit. It is reasonably unspoilt. Also recommended is the beach at Maguelene South of Montpellier reached via Palavas-les-Flots.

Nature reserves
The whole area is rich in wildlife and popular with birdwatchers. For flamingos, kingfishers etc and horses go to the Camargue, East of Les Espigettes and follow the signs.

Tennis
At Anduze and Quissac.

Cycling and scooters
These can be hired from JLR Motos Cycles, Z.I. Route de Saint-Jean-du-Gard, Anduze, 30140

Canoeing
Canoe 8 km down to Remoulin, going under the Pont du Gard, and then be bussed back. Wonderful scenery, wildlife and very tranquil.
Try the 11 km trip from S. Nicholas which is even more spectacular. There is canoeing at Ganges through the beautiful gorges of the Hérault.

Treetop Adventure Park. Very near to Anduze.

Markets:
Anduze flea market and Lunel large general market, the place to go for Provençal prints: loads of stalls (Sunday am).

Quissac: general but worth a visit (Wednesday am).
Sommieres: general (summer only) (Wednesday pm).
Anduze: brilliant market - our favourite (Thursday am).
Nîmes: general (Friday am).
