Lying on a small plateau between the Ardèche and Cévennes, Barjac offers an intimate experience of both the marvelous urban planning of the 18th Century and a taste of the wonderful produce of the local area.
In amongst its ancient stone alleys bathed in sunlight, you will discover a 12th century dungeon, a renaissance doorway and towers and a variety of remarkable buildings.
This historic atmosphere is perfectly suited to the two antique fairs which are held at Easter and mid-August. Buyers come from far and wide to enjoy the fair, as well as the festival de Chansons de Paroles at the end of July and many other events.
In the surrounding area, there is much to be seen. To the north; the wild Ardèche gorge, a natural reserve with stunning river beaches and canoe descents, is an easy day out.
To the south the valley of the Cèze winds it's way through limestone gorges, waterfalls, vineyards and sunflower and lavender fields.
Further afield; we are about an hour from Avignon, Uzès and Nîmes. The house is around one-and-a-half hours from Montpellier, the Mediterranean coast and the Carmargue.
