About Joëlle Bresson
Our roots from the Cevennes and our love to the region did motivate us during the years of the renovation of the cottage, which was built in the 17th century during the time of the breeding ot the silkworms. It is a nice way for thanking our elders for the history and their hard work. It's the place where our sons did grow up in total freedom.
Joëlle Bresson purchased this Cottage in 1978
Why Joëlle Bresson chose Saint-Laurent-le-Minier
The cottage is and will stay our family cottage. The hamlet of La Combe is located 2 km above the village of Saint Laurent Le Minier in front of the dale of the Vis. Everything is full of sun and green. The wide open space and the magic of this space are perfect for breathing new life.
What makes this Cottage unique
The situation of the hamlet allows you to travel through the region and than to enjoy some peace on the sundeck. The fully renovated cottage is very comfortable. During the summer, you may enjoy bathing in the clear water of the Vis and canoeing on the river 'Hérault'. There are plenty of visits to do in the surroundings, you may travel with your car, your bike, your feet or on the back of a donkey. You may also laze in the coolness of the house or in the shadow of the trees.

Séjour exceptionnel pour amateurs de la nature et de maisons authentiques
Appartement lumineux, spacieux et harmonieux dans un très beau mas authentique. De tous côtés prés, vergers et bois sans fin. Très belle vue sur la vallée de la Vis qui est très fraîche et rafraïchissante même pendant des périodes caniculaires.
Les propriétaires sont sympathiques: discrets, mais absolument prêts à une conversation ou un échange d'expériences ...
Vivement à recommander!
Perfect Place to enjoy and discover the Cevennen
We spent three weeks in this ancient, well equiped holiday home. It is ideal for hot days as cool inside and with a wonderful terrace to enjoy the stunning view and to watch the stars at night. On rainy or colder days the woodburner creates a romantic atmosphere. We did a lot of cooking in the well equiped kitchen. The weekly market in Ganges offers a wide variety of fresh and regional products. Try the sweet onions which are typical for the Cevennes. One very nice walk passes right along the house. Maps are also available as well as information about walks and places of interest to visit. September and October are the right time for travelling if you want to enjoy nature by watching the wildlife around the house and in the area. As the main holiday season is over the hamlet is a quiet place then. The bridge of Millau, the Mont Aigual and the vulture visitor center are quite close, and can even be combined in a daytrip. Also Montpellier is reachable within an hours drive. The communication and contact with the owners have been very easy. We got any support needed and a lot of interesting and helpful information.
