Guest car park close to the gites.
There are uneven steps around this 500 year old mas, so it may not be entirely suitable for the very elderly. Le Murier is on the first floor.
The layout of the gites and the nature of the mas make it most suitable for children over the age of 16 although we welcome children of all ages when all three gites are booked together.
We have a spectacular Roman style inner courtyard where we can host a wine tasting evening for groups on request. A small shop stocks home made jams and chutneys and basic essentials such as milk, butter, rice and of course beers, wine and ice cream. Our library is well stocked with local information and our electronic welcome book lists plenty of places to go and things to see and do along with restaurant recommendations.
Bikes are available free of charge but we do advise serious cyclists to bring their own. Secure storage is available.
Tumble drier and washing line available for guests.
On Sunday nights we host a relaxed and informal welcome supper for guests, using locally sourced produce wherever possible. Always a fun night!
Graham and I arrived here in 2017 after many years living around the world. Today the Mas is a family home to us, our 11 rare breed chickens, two dogs and occasional grown up children who may be visiting.

|Why this location?||It's bang in the middle of everything you could possibly want - culture, wine, walks, cycling, Roman antiquities and a choice of amazing cities.
Set below the ramparts of Lussan, one of the Plus Beaux Villages de France, this ancient mas has been sympathetically restored to offer three beautiful self catering gîtes set around a Roman style courtyard.
The grounds are extensive, with landscaped gardens, pool, boules court, barbecue terrace, and several acres of fields. From here you can walk straight out into the garrigue beyond. There are plenty of places to sit and enjoy the views or spot the wildlife and with a maximum capacity of just 10 guests there is always a quiet spot to be found.
In the heart of the Gard Provençal we are ideally located. With easy access to the Cevennes and Ardeche for lovers of outdoor activities, and close to the Mediterranean coast and to the historic towns of Uzès, Avignon, Nimes and Montpellier there’s something for everyone.
