    In the Gard, on the first foothills of the southern Cévennes, a splendid small village castle to renovate. Total surface area: about 800 m2, of which 300m2 are already used as living space, with two large vaulted rooms, one dining room, a pantry and a kitchen, 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 2 small towers on either side, in which some more space can still be fitted out. The property is situated at the entrance of a village, on about 4,4ha of land, including a magnificent park planted with centuries old trees and box tree lined paths. Facing south-east, it is located in a quiet environment, and enjoys a very nice sight onto the village it is dominating and the surrounding hills. The château was built in the 16th century, rebuilt in the middle of the 20th century and has a very rich historical background. From time immemorial, it was a place of refuge for all resistants, from the camisards to the members of the "maquis" of world war
