The gite

Gîte de Barbusse

Relaxation, authenticity, discovery

We look forward to welcoming you.

Located in the town of Tornac near Anduze, the hamlet of Barbusse is a peaceful place, an old Provencal farmhouse dating from the 17th century, completely renovated and which is still changing.

This house on two floors with a roof top awaits you in a hamlet in the middle of nature on a hillside with views of the vineyards and the hills. You can hear the river flowing right there. Three minutes away on foot, there is a "gour" where you can swim and you will find a second swimming point by going up the vineyards one kilometer upstream from the river. You can stroll or go mountain biking in the middle of this typically Provencal and Cévennes landscape.

The house consists of three bedrooms of around 15m2, each with a double bed, two shower rooms, a large dining room with an open kitchen of 35m2 and a small TV area. A 45m2 roof terrace offers a view of the entire valley with its grill area, table and lounge.
