About this home
This magnificent 9-bedroom, 6000 square foot French farmhouse is situated in the beautiful South of France, just outside the walls of the stunning medieval town of Vézénobres, in Gard. It is within 30 minutes of Nimes international airport (direct UK flights), with easy access to Montpellier and Marseille airports, and various TGV stations too. It is rural and private, without being isolated.
Le Mas du Figuier (“House of Figs”) is made from quintessential French stone, with wooden beams throughout, across three huge floors, surrounding a pretty courtyard. The house has been thoughtfully designed to ensure that everyone has plenty of living space, for relaxing or entertaining, or can flow outdoors to chill by the pool or on a terrace: there are four separate indoor living areas – a spectacular dining area that seats 22, a huge living room for relaxed friends and family time (even a fire for the winter), a games room for entertaining both adults and kids (pool table / table football), the last a TV room full of giant beanbags.
Oh, and an owners’ wine-tasting cellar…
This is simply the perfect place to relax and enjoy your family, spend time with your friends, explore this beautiful country, rejuvenate yourself, rediscover the important things in life.
This is an opportunity to purchase one-eighth share of this property, which you will co-own, entitling you to 6 weeks exclusive usage per year (or up to 18 weeks on a shared usage basis), whilst all running costs are equally shared between owners. Lower initial capital outlay, shared running costs, ample usage: a pragmatic way to have a second home without compromise.
At the end of the pre-agreed investment period (8 years), the property is sold and the sale proceeds shared back out.
Vézénobres is a beautiful, cobbled and walled medieval town (population c2000) in the department of Gard, in the South of France. It sits a few miles to the west of Provence, in the administrative region of Occitanie (formerly Languedoc-Roussillon).
The house sits just 50 metres below the medieval city walls. Within the stunning small town are three fantastic restaurants, a welcoming bar that also serves lunch and snacks, a delicious creperie, an ice-cream parlour, and some quaint shops. Nearby, there is a large supermarket with petrol station, cash machine and coffee shop, a convenience store, a spa, a beauty salon, a tapas restaurant and a pizzeria with bar. It is easily possible not to get in the car for an entire week if you so choose.
Vézénobres has been invited / applied to join the list of The Most Beautiful Villages in France. It is expected that it will be accepted to join in 2019. There are currently 156 villages accepted onto this prestigious list (from an estimated 32,000 villages in France), and only 4 others in the Gard region. It is normally associated with an increase in tourism to the village of 10-50%, and therefore strongly supportive of local house prices (notably those that could be used for tourism purposes like Le Mas du Figuier).
The only ski resort where you can see not only the Alps and the Pyrenees, but also the Mediterranean, Prat Peyrot, on the stunning Mont Aigoual in the magnificent Cevennes is only 50 miles from Le Mas du Figuier….. about 90 minutes drive.
