About the neighbourhood
In an isolated mas in the beautiful Cévennes mountains but only 15 minutes away from a small town with all facilities and a weekly market. Ideal location to explore all the local tourist attractions, go walking, enjoy outdoor sports, swim in the crystal clear rivers nearby or simply relax on our 50 acres of land next to the stream or under a tree and listen to the calm and birdsong! This is a great place for nature lovers - if you come in June or July you will be stunned by the selection of butterflies and insects which make the most of our organically and ecologically managed land. You can also enjoy our home produce and eggs from our free range hens - all free of charge (in season). We have about 50 fig trees - for July and September!
