A refined and spacious stone house with a most atmospheric and romantic feel for 2 to 5 : an esthetic retreat from the busy world. Set in an untouched medieval hamlet in the South of France. This magical XVII th century home offers breathtaking views on The national Parc of Les Cevennes, which is a UNESCO heritage.
A perfect house for a couple who enjoys high ceilings and an indoor-outdoor feel with its two terraces. A magical and very romantic retreat, in a refined atmosphere.


The Bastide d'Esparon is a very romantic place to stay in a haven full of breathtaking views. Perfect for one or two couples or a family of 4/5 who love the spaciousness and the indoors-outdoors feel of the house.
A most atmospheric, esthetic retreat from the busy world cooled by mountain breezes in the blistering summer, with superb walks, rivers for swimming or canoeing down in the valley, unusual excursions galore - and just 6 kilometers from all shopping. It is totally peaceful and calm.

A well-restored place, much loved by the creative, colour-conscious family who have owned it for 50 years. Everywhere are lovely kilim rugs and pieces brought back from the owners' travels – fine old wooden chests, antique wardrobes, contemporary art and books.

You are in the South of France and you feel you are on the top of the world. You are living indoor and outdoor with constant views from the windows and terraces on the untouched and intact sunny countryside of Les Cevennes Meridionales with its rolling mountains, high plateau and big sky.

Inside, history speaks through several levels and thick old walls. A refined atmosphere, with high ceilings, white walls, and a great feeling of luminousness. Some say it was the location of the old Merovingian castle. The house still has old sinks, carved stones, vaulted ceilings, which attest to its past history.

Perfect for nature-lovers who love to walk and hike on the great trails, go to the surrounding rivers and picnic. Cook at home and enjoy the sunsets and sunrises.

The hamlet of Esparon is an untouched medieval village dating from the XI th century in a very picturesque ensemble of 25 houses with a chapel and a running fountain, and remains of ramparts and towers. It is located in The Parc National des Cevennes protected by the UNESCO World Heritage for its authentic natural landscapes.

La Bastide d'Esparon is situated in the Languedoc-Roussillon. 40 minutes from Montpellier and Nîmes airports, bus and train stations. From here, you can visit the area of The Languedoc, Les Cevennes, Les Causses and go to all the great summer festivals of theatre in Avignon, photography in Arles and Sete, lyrical opera in Aix or just take great walks and enjoy the fantastic rivers and trails as well as the untouristy quality of the region.

Annat att notera

All my guests always say the house is magical. They all want to come back. There are no cars. It is like being back in another time. With its breathtaking views from every where on the sky and the hamlet and the soft Cevennes mountains, airy but colorful and contemporary decoration.

It is an old stone house but with very high ceilings and full of light and the walls are all white (with paintings and art on them-but not too much!).

The furnishings and lovingly placed artefacts are refined and well maintained so I would ask the guests to honor them.

This authentic Cevenol House has a very distinct charm as it allies traditional antiques from my family and the Brocantes in the region as well as contemporary objects and artefacts acquired during my numerous travels.

I would ask you to water the garden and all my beautiful Uzes pots every evening in hot weather., as I love to do every other evening during the hot summer days.

I would love it if you could treat my home with care and respect for the Art and antiques and please love it like your own home.

Måste gå i trappor - La Bastide is an old stone house. There are quite a few steps to go up one flight.

Martinez bastide is in a quiet hameau on top of a steep hill. It is an ideal retreat for relaxing and getting away from it all. The house is well equipped and comfortable with excellent outdoor areas that enjoy a breathtaking view.

We really loved our recent stay at Martine's bastide in the Cevennes. The photos really don't do it justice, as there are dozens of interesting rooms and works of art to discover! Despite the cool autumn weather, we really loved watching the sun set from (note: one of several!) the terrace. We also loved exploring Esparon itself, and driving through the picturesque villages nearby. The caretakers, Samir and Aicha, were delightful and very patient with our slow and often incorrrect French. They made sure we had everything we needed, and gave us suggestions for places to eat and things to do. Overall, a wonderful experience.

HI Katie, It was great having you at la Bastide d'Esparon. The fall is a beautiful season there, and the leaves on the hills and the high plateaux which you can see from the different terrasses are indeed wonderful. I envy you and wish I could have been there. Come back whenever you want. And if you are on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), don't hesitate to post photos with the hashtag: #BastideEsparon

Martine has described the house perfectly. It is an old, large and rustic stone house situated in a small Hamlet high in the Cevennes; just perfect for finding peace and tranquility from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The only neighbours we saw were the birds and some local nosy cats! The house is on two levels, but as we were only 2 we just used the top part of the house, with simple kitchen and bathroom, nice master bedroom, office, and the best part, the lovely dining/sitting room. Cooking facilities were adequate, but having visited Le Vigan the temptation to dine out was greater! Le Vigan is 15 mins by car and will have everything you need and more with plenty of shops and a large store for groceries etc. For the outdoor type there is walking straight from the house to local villages. Some routes a little challenging, and some very easy, but all of them surround you in the Cevenol atmosphere, scenery and beautiful views. Having breakfast on the terrace was wonderful, with views across the hills, and down to Arre, but come night fall and you are treated to a view of the heavens. The exceptional darkness of the skies can never fail to impress those who look up. It is a must! When we arrived were given a guided tour of the house by our very pleasant housekeeper, Samir, who also ensured we were comfortable during our stay. Given the remoteness of the property, is is necessary to ensure that the housekeeper is aware of your time of arrival.

Perched high above the valley in an incredibly atmospheric hamlet, the Great Old Bastide is an intriguing building that has been turned into a fantastic home. With a seemingly endless choice of rooms, nooks, terraces and unexpected views to explore, it would be easy to never leave. Each of the spaces is impeccably but comfortably furnished and we felt privileged to be invited in. Martine's communication was speedy, friendly and accurate and our arrival and departure were completely smooth. Everything to recommend it...

Dan, you were a fantastic guest and you are welcome back whenever you want. I am so moved by your poetic description which captures so well the spirit of La Bastide. I bet you are a writer.. please keep me in touch if some of your poetry is published.

We very much enjoyed our time at Martine's house in Esparon. The house and village were extremely peaceful and we felt very relaxed as soon as we arrived. It was wonderful spending time in the outdoor terraces, eating our meals or reading books. The surrounding natural environment is beautiful and there are many great walks in the area. Martine was very helpful giving lots of information on places to visit and things to do.

You were great guests. You relaxed enjoying the sceneries and wines from the region, taking time to clean your laundry and let it dry in the sun whilst reading a book and also you took great hikes and was in the Cirques de Navacelles and swimming in the rivers... a perfect combination.

On the premises when I am not there, I have a great super who has been taking care of the house for the past 20 years. He is great.
I am very computer savvy so I am always reachable by mail/SMS.

Om Martine

I am a fine art photographer. I like spaces and colors. I was born in Paris, France and presently live in New York.
I live in 2 houses which are my havens and which I rent.
When I am not in my house in The Bronx from which I work, I am in my house in the South of France.
The house in the South of France is a family house where i have spent my summers since I was 5. I am a photographer working in New York. This has been my country house where I have spent many summers and it is a perfect contrast from the city life. I like the perfect calm and the luminous space I have in this house with the great views on the rolling hills and the light on the mountains of the Cevennes and the high plateaux of the Causses.
This house is my sanctuary.
I love the evenings watching the sunset with a glass of rose on the southern terrace, going to the rivers with a picnic, hiking in the mountains.
