Rue Baratier is a delightful 3 storey house lying in the mediaeval heart of a lively gardoise village. Situated in the desirable district of the Vaunage between the vibrant cosmopolitan towns of Nimes and Montpellier, Calvisson lies surrounded by vineyards, beautiful countryside and stunning scenery to the north and the vast sandy beaches of the Mediterranean coastline and the Camargue to the south.

The village itself with all amenities is buzzing with people going about their everyday lives and there is the added treat of the busy market selling local produce, flowers and artisanal products, which takes place in the village square every Sunday morning.

The beautifully decorated interior of Rue Baratier designed in neutral colours to reflect the classical stonework provides an elegant and refined setting. Accented with period antiques of the region and with fully integrated modern conveniences, the house is a blend of old world charm and up-to-date facilities.

Anybody with an appreciation of the seamless mix of stylish living with period furnishings would be enthralled by this special living environment which captures the essence of the best of village life in the heart of this lively village.


The entrance from the road leads onto the original stone staircase with cloaks and separate WC. On the first floor is a spacious living room furnished with a mix of stylish furnishings in neutral tones and period antiques providing the seamless juxtaposition of old and new. The exposed stone walls with high ceilings give the classical Provençal feel whilst the large shuttered window and the addition of 19th century mirrors enhance the light and airy effect. The living room has a comfortable sofa and armchairs around the log-burning fireplace, an ottoman which serves as a coffee table and converts into a single bed, a TV/DVD system with terrestial and satellite connections and a study area.

The kitchen and dining area leads directly off the living room for open plan living. A modern refectory table which seats 8 people for casual or elegant dining sits comfortably on the original terracotta flooring. The kitchen, fully fitted with dishwasher, fridge, freezer and ample storage space, is equipped with all the utensils and crockery required for preparing your lovely Mediterranean meals with fresh local market produce.

The kitchen leads on to the rear courtyard decorated with pots, trees and shrubs of the region. The small 'bassin' with fountain provides a welcome cooling off area from the midday sun which floods the courtyard, whilst the exterior lighting allows you to take your aperitifs and evening meal on the outdoor table and chairs in the cool night air.

On the second floor the master bedroom provides an oasis of calm for more solitary moments. Continuing the style of mixing modern comforts with period furnishings, the light and airy bedroom is naturally lit from both ends by large windows which also provide natural air conditioning. The elevated position offers fabulous views over the Vaunage landscape whilst the opposite French windows look out on to the rear courtyard. There is a large armoire and period chest of drawers for storage and a chaise longue for relaxation. The king size bed has been carefully selected for its quality and comfort. The stylish ensuite bathroom has a WC, bidet, wash basin and large shower cubicle.

The second bedroom, also decorated in cool, neutral tones, has a standard sized double bed and fitted wardrobe with shelves. The room is also naturally lit and aired with double shuttered windows offering the same lovely views over the surrounding village rooftops and countryside. The ensuite bathroom, again a combination of stonework and modern finishes with cool white bathroom furniture, has a WC, bidet, wash basin and shower room.

Both bedrooms have terrestial and satellite wall mounted TV and DVD units.

The ground floor access to the house leads directly to the garage which has parking space for a small car and incorporates a fully equipped utility room with washing machine and dryer and airing and ironing equipment.
