Capricorne Gites is a newly renovated rustic 18th-century farmhouse nestled among fields and vineyards in the Cevennes region of Occitanie, South of France. The quaint medieval village boasts idyllic views of the surrounding area and is just a 5-minute walk from La Ceze river where you can swim and enjoy the pristine river beach.

Each of the en-suite rooms has a fresh and minimalist chic style, designed to reflect the original 18th-century building with a modern feel and a place to feel completely relaxed, cool, and comfortable during your stay. As well as the courtyard, the property boasts acres of terraced forest land where you are free to explore, sunbathe, or enjoy the views from the hilltop pergola.

There are also hammocks and chill out chairs in the fruit orchard to laze around between sessions under the trees. The house also has a lounge area with TV and a fully equipped kitchen with washing machine and complimentary tea and coffee facilities.
