Le Mas Blan exists for almost 800 years and is originally a Benedictine Monastery. It is a mythical place, beautifully situated in a nature reserve on the border of Provence and the Cevennes. The renovated monastery is overlooking the surrounding hills and the 40 hectares of private forests, terraces, and hiking trails along our own waterwells. The heated swimming pool is not far from the beautifully restored accommodations. Are you looking for a holiday home in the South of France or better still a holiday home with swimming pool in Provence or Cevennes, then you have come to the right place.

the Bottling room

If you choose our “Bottling Room” we will receive you in the main building of the former Benedictine monastery. It is a two or three person studio on the ground floor. It is faces the former stables. These stables are currently set up as a “brocante” shop, that opens its doors for you one day every week. In the courtyard you can see the half doors that remind us of the time that horses could look out through the top half. The Bottling room has these funny doors as a bonus. They serve as shutters at your front door. You close them the moment you want to shut out the outside world. The Bottling room is the apartment that has an original 12th century arched ceiling throughout the entire space.

On the left you will find the twin bed with 2 mattresses and on the right the dining table with country chairs and the kitchen with hard stone top plate. You will find all ‘tools’ to prepare your breakfast and lunch. But also for dinner, on Tuesday and Friday when our restaurant is closed. From your kitchen window you can see the baker lay the freshly baked bread in the “bread chest” in the morning. On the east side of the bottling room you step through a sliding door on to your own terrace. The morning sun is waiting for you there. It is equipped with a cozy round table and comfortable chairs. You can enjoy a glass of wine here together, in the evening before bedtime. Or just enjoy the starry sky.

On your terrace you look out over the hills of the Cevennes and the 40 hectares of private forests and sources of the Mas Blanc. They ensure that you find the absolute peace that we (in part) owe our reputation to. The bottling room has enough space to place an extra bed.

Surroundings

Nature: The Mas Blanc is located in the specific surroundings where the Provence and certainly the Cévennes are known for. Rest, swimming in the heated pool and the many rivers, will offer you the relaxation you are looking for.

Activities: In the immediate vicinity you can make large and small walks and bike rides from the former monastery. We have prepared routes for this purpose. The same applies to people who prefer to explore the area by car. But a canoe trip on the Cèze or Ardèche is often on the program. For the larger children there is an adventure park within walking distance where they can climb in the trees.

Cities and Villages: Are you interested in the culture of the region? Then you will enjoy yourselves in the cities of Avignon, Uzès, Nimes en Montpellier. “Les 5 plus beaux villages de France”) are so close, that you can visit them in one beautiful day trip by car.

Direct surroundings: The Mas Blanc is ideal for exploring the southern French Cevennes, Ardèche and Provence. Saint Ambroix is ​​only a few kilometers away. On Tuesday morning the people from near and far come together for the weekly market.

Day trip: The river Cèze offers many opportunities for swimming, fishing or canoeing. But also the beach is an easily accessible destination for a day trip.

Museums: We name 10 of them, but there are many more.
Pont du Gard
The silk museum
Saint Quentin la poterie
Un siecle de roulottes
Le musée 1900
Prehistorama
the fossil forest
Les Baux – de- Provence
Sweets museum Haribo
The Mining museum.

Caves: In the immediate vicinity there are 4 caves to visit. Very exciting and current is the “Grotte de Chauvet”. He has been opened for the public just recently. This, now world famous, cave discovered by chance just in 1994 . The cave was inhabited more than 30,000 years ago (in the stone age) by the inhabitants of this region. Hundreds of drawings of animals whose existence was not yet known have been found . Only scientists and honored guests can visit the real cave, which is on the Unesco World Heritage List. But the French authorities have built a replica for a total cost of 55 million euros, that can not be distinguished from the real one. From the location of your holiday home on the Mas Blanc, this cave can be reached within 45 minutes.
