Compare with all properties

Environment ✧ hills amongst windy rocky river valleys, scrubland and woods; hikes on doorstep

Services ✧ none, supermarket/village 10mins bike; town 25mins train

Access ✧ train at door; Ales 25mins, Nimes 1h (last 7pm); ~5h Paris/Barcelona (1 change)

Notes ✧ ground floor used to be shops and the epicerie, very tatty from the outside, but is immediately usable as has recently renovated apartments and glazing, though about one quarter is completely abandoned
✦ no outdoor space, however could add balconies and the ground floor with 3 large entrances could be opened up
✦ apparently still for sale but now private
✦ village definely needs some guerilla gardening
✦ the attic could have mezzanines, and could be opened up with a roof terrace though probably not worth the effort
✦ opposite another large abandoned building [since demolished!], and the chateau #225
✦ directly opposite train stop
✦ the main town is Alès, is fairly dynamic and has ongoing improvements with a new market hall pending
✦ village of Genolhac is 25mins train, the small towns of Anduze and St Ambroix are 35mins drive for some variation, whilst the excellent city of Nimes is 1h by direct train thus reasonable for outings (and good for access)
✦ later trains run to Ales (last 9pm), 20mins pickup
✦ thai restaurant; riverfront auberge 20mins walk
✦ 15mins bike to lake for kayak/SUP
✦ the local village is not very appealing whereas the town is much better
✦ 15mins drive to probable streams and river swimming spots
✦ 3 floors of 190m2, plus caves
