For buying and selling property in Barjac

Barjac - a delightful area of France

Barjac, a Renaissance town that lies in the south of France, in the Gard Provençal district of Languedoc-Roussillon, settles its ancient stones blissfully under a hot southern sun, amongst the lavender, sunflowers, chestnuts, olive groves and vineyards that so delightfully and deliciously characterise the area. The name of the Gard Provençal is given to the part of the department where Barjac is found, as although not technically part of Provence, the area is as Provençal in spirit as the Luberon itself.

Cave de Chauvet

The Cave de Chauvet can be found some ten kilometres from Barjac. Here evidence has been unearthed that proves the existence of a human settlement in the area dating back as far as 30,000 BC, so if it's a bit of history you are after you won't have to look too far!

Barjac - a Renaissance town

Moving a little further forward on the time line, though, the town of Barjac is a perfect example of a Renaissance town. Beautifully preserved and restored under the expert eye of the "Batiments de France" group of architects, there are many original architectural features to enjoy. A real sense of history pervades the air as you walk in the ancient streets or sit in a shady spot in one of the pretty squares to sip a glass of excellent local wine.

Things to see in Barjac

Things to see include the Château du Roure, the town's original citadel. This lovely building plays host to an important cultural festival, held at the end of July every year, known as the Festival of Songs and Words.

Shopping and dining... and sports!

There is a good little selection of shops and amenities in the town, perhaps surprisingly so for its small size and ancient air. You do not need to leave the town to find a good doctor, to take money from your bank account, to buy excellent food and wine or to indulge in a pleasant evening in a good restaurant. If your tastes range to the more sporty, there are plenty of opportunities to get active in and around Barjac, with hiking, horse-riding, canoeing and kayaking, mountain biking and many more activities available.

Beautiful countryside surrounds Barjac

All the beauty of nature is there to see in the countryside that surrounds Barjac. The magical sight of huge, purple fields of lavender, glossy, well groomed vineyards, golden sunflowers and silvery olive trees greet your eyes wherever you look, making this quite possibly one of France's most beautiful natural environments. It's perfect walking country, and this is perhaps one of the most enjoyable ways to explore it, as it allows you plenty of time to experience the richness of the colours, scents and sensations that evoke Provence.
