The Mas is a large Provencal farmhouse set in three acres of gardens and paddocks and is ideally situated for discovering the Drôme Provençale, the Vaucluse and southern Ardèche and is easily accessed via the A7 autoroute du Soleil.


The popular provençal village of La Bégude-de-Mazenc, with its variety of small shops, cafés-bars, restaurant, pizzeria and SuperU Express supermarket is only a few minutes away by car or bike or you can walk there in 15 to 20 minutes.


The guest rooms overlook the large pool terrace and have wonderful views of the surrounding countryside towards the Alpine foothills. Next to the swimming pool is the covered dining area with tables and chairs and barbecue facilities. This is where the breakfasts are served in summer and it is also the ideal place to enjoy lunch or dinner, prepared by yourselves in the fully equipped guest kitchen or a place to relax with the other guests. 


Montélimar, known for its delicious nougat, is twenty minutes away and Avignon and the Gorges de l'Ardèche are a one hour drive from the house. Nearby, you can visit several medieval perched villages in the region, some of which are classified among the most beautiful villages in France, such as Le Poët-Laval, Grignan, Mirmande and La Garde-Adhémar. To the east, a short drive away, you will find yourself among the foothills of the Alps and some of the most beautiful scenery in France.

The hammock zone. One for each guest.

Snuggle up with a good book or sway gently to sleep in the shade of Mediterranean pines while letting yourself be lulled by the chorus of Cicadas. 

The picnic tables are located under the olive and plane trees, allowing you to enjoy your meal in the shade whilst admiring the magnificent views of the medieval village and the surrounding landscapes.

Pacha the horse and Donkeys, Biscotte, Bonbon and Bonita are always happy to say hello to you, especially if carrots are on offer!. You can also join Andrew in the evening when he tends to the horses and give them a brush if you like. They adore being brushed.
