This very ancient house was completely renovated in 2012. Located on the northern edge of the village, it opens, with its 2 fenced gardens, directly onto the countryside. Self-catering without being isolated, it benefits from absolute quiet.
Each of the 4 bedrooms, including 2 with living room, has an en-suite and toilets. They all are well separated: the first ones to get up do not wake the others up...
When the weather is nice (from April to October), you can have your breakfast and your meals in the large (45 m²) outdoors dining room with a fully equipped kitchen (including crockery and cutlery). Enjoy the pool located right next to the pool house.
On the first level: 2 living rooms and a Mezzanine. The main kitchen, with view over the countryside, is fully equipped (as a result, you have everything in 2 copies).
Pompignon (800 inhabitants), in the middle of a vast plain, is preserved from the summer crowds. It has a bakery-grocery shop and a diner. Cécile, our neighbour, delivers her tasty cooking (Indian, Moroccan, Thai): convenient on the day of your arrival.
In Saint Hippolyte du Fort (9 km away): supermarket, pharmacy, newsagent, organic shop, restaurants, etc.
You want to do more than bask in the sun next to the stone pool, you want to move? You can go directly from the Ostal for some splendid walks, some mountain bike rides (available) or horse riding tours (2 equestrian centres in Pompignan). Nearby, you can practice: canoeing on the Hérault, rock-climbing on the Taillade crest (renowned throughout Europe judging by the number plates) and even paragliding from the Hortus Mountain dominating the south of the plain.
Even with a pace of one visit a day, you should stay way more than 2 weeks to discover every well worth seeing place of interest without having to go far.
Indeed, within a distance of 20 km: the Camisards museum (Mialet), the Demoiselles Cave (Laroque), the glass market building (Claret), the silk museum (Saint Hippolyte), the bamboo grove of Anduze, the Cévennes' small steam train (Anduze), the glassblowers' path, the Pitch Fork Museum (Sauve), the rocks sea, the Causse of the Hortus, the panoramic viewpoint and the amazing wind rose.
And more than 60 winemakers (AOC Pic Saint-Loup) who always take delight in letting people taste their production. Many artisans settled in the magical Pompignan: wood sculptors, ceramists, painters, stone carvers.
A bit further away, but that cannot be ignored: St-Guihem-le-Désert and the Pont du Gard, registered in the UNESCO´s world heritage list; the imposing Cirque de Navacelles, Nimes and its arenas, the Maison Carrée, the Magne Tower; and Montpellier of course, with the Musée Fabre (one of the most beautiful collection of France), the zoo (free!), the Place de la Comédie in the heart of the pedestrian district of Ecusson, etc.
Finally, for the bravest or the most curious, the Camargue, the Canal du Midi, Sète, Pézenas, Agde, and so on.
