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 Abbotshouse

This holiday home for 2 is located on the ground floor. The abbot of the convent had the privilege to have an office next to his bedroom. The bedroom faces the west. The “office” has a south-facing window. You reach the Abbotshouse by entering the first two steps of the cloister hallway. Before you step inside: enjoy the hanging wrought iron candlesticks in the hall. In the apartment you will find the bathroom with shower and toilet on the left. The living room / kitchen still has the original arched ceiling. Here (or on an outside terrace) you can enjoy your breakfast and have everything within reach.

The stone counter top of the kitchen and the antique table with farm chairs give a special touch to this room. Behind two beautifully refurbished antique doors, you will find a spacious closet. A small openwork table with two wicker armchairs on both sides, will make you feel comfortable. You can display your books and holiday finds in the open shelf cupboard. From the bedroom you look out over the lush canopy of the trees of the Mas Blanc.

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.

Le musée 1900 
Prehistorama 
the fossil forest

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.
