PROVENCAL MAS AND AT THE FOOT OF CEVENNES

Monoblet Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

5 full & 2-1/2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 10+5, 3 Kitchens, Beautiful Pool

Mas de l’Aire is situated at the entrance to the quaint village of Monoblet (http://www.monoblet.org/). The house is within walking distance of village amenities including a bakery, café and restaurant. While the house allows for easy access to the village, just as easy to access are the many trails into the Cevennes offering a variety of hikes, including to the nearby castle of Fressac. The village of Monoblet is approximately 50 minutes’ drive from Nimes, one hour from Montpellier and two hours from Marseilles; these contain international flight and/or TGV (fast train) options allowing for a smooth transition from plane or train to the French country side.

The farm manor house is of ample proportions, at 500 m², and fully renovated. It contains 5 full & 2-1/2 bedrooms, 4 1/2 bathrooms, 4 lounges and 3 kitchens (including one at the pool house).

Ground floor: Contains an expansive, vaulted kitchen which opens on to a terrace and garden; the floor also has the main dining room, two bedrooms and one bathroom.

Main floor: This has a second entrance to the house from the street leading into the village; it contains two large living rooms, a study, small kitchen, a bedroom and bathroom. There is another toilet located just above the ground floor kitchen off the stair well. Additional bedding options are available on this floor.

Top floor: This floor contains a large lounge/library, a large bathroom, and the master bedroom; a sleeping loft is also located on the floor.

Garden floor: This part of the house contains a small “orangerie” which has been set up as an additional bedroom and has its own entrance.

The property is 3000 m² and contains a beautiful landscaped, mature Mediterranean garden. The large kidney shaped pool is 20 x 6 metres and is situated among the trees and flowers. It has a pool house which contains a toilet and shower as well as small kitchen. The property also has its own parking area, which can easily accommodate several vehicles. The field on the other side of the parking lot belongs to the house. There are horses, and the occasional house, in the adjoining fields.

Mas de l’Aire has a web site which contains a floor plan of the house as well as additional information on the house and region as well as more photos. The house has all new appliances, sofas and beds.

Gabrielle Appleford & Stephen McDowell purchased this chateau / country house in 2013

We have been looking to a second home in France for years. We love rural France - the culture, the cuisine, wine, country side and outdoor activities. Mas de l'Aire offers all of those. It was also the most beautiful house and setting we had seen. Never had a home rendered us speechless the way Mas de l'Aire did. It is a beautiful, beautiful home in a stunning setting.

This is a home which lets us meet with family and friends around the world. We want other families and friends - spread around the globe like we are - to have an opportunity to meet and spend time together in comfort and in a magic corner of the world.

superb!

  • 5 of 5
We were a family of 12, ages 5 months to 75 years, celebrating together. The adults speak French and three rented cars. The area is rugged, rural, full of gorges and switchback driving, and cyclers, but thankfully not full of tourists. The village is very small, and so sightseeing requires having a car. That said, there are medieval ruins, the trail of R.L. Stevenson, art communities, hiking, water sports, delicious local cuisine, wineries and more. The house is exceptionally spacious and well-appointed for both comfort and entertainment, and the huge saltwater pool is irresistable. The English style gardens are a masterpiece. The owners, caretaker, and local people we met were all friendly and very helpful meeting our various needs, including restaurant recommendaitons. We would love to return. We brought our dog, but pet owners should know the property is not fully fenced.

Great place to bring people together

  • 5 of 5
My brother, sister and I brought our families together in June for a decadent week at this spacious and comfortable Mas. There are plenty of quiet nooks and reading rooms to find peace and quiet when you need it, but lots of common areas for dining and spending time together. The house was tastefully decorated and the furniture was brand-new (beds comfortable!). The gardens are gorgeous, with apricot and fig trees, berry bushes, and beautiful flowers. We spent hours in the pool with the kids, admiring the surrounding mountains and countryside. On our more ambitious days, we tried the nearby trails, summiting "Les Jumelles" or just strolling around the village. We were pleased to discover the little Saturday market in the village square, with fresh goat cheese, breads, jams, local fruit and vegetables. It was fun to watch some of the World Cup games at the pub with the locals and our kids really enjoyed visiting the many horses just across the street. We visited medieval towns and castle ruins nearby, and shopped at morning markets in St Hippolyte, Quissac, Ales. But best of all were the quiet afternoons chatting together in the garden, trying out wines bought at nearby vineyards, snacking on delicious local cheeses and charcuterie with fresh baguette and strawberries. We will absolutely be back!

Fantastic Stay at Mas de L'Aire

Fantastic Stay at Mas de L'Aire
  • 5 of 5
We have spent a wonderful 6 days here at the beautiful Mas de L'Aire in Monoblet. The weather has been hot so we have spent a lot of time exploring the area on foot (great walks in the hills) and by car and found activities to entertain all age groups. The house is spacious and beautifully furnished with modern equipment and amenities and there are multiple living rooms to occupy so its is ideal for several families to share. The pool is well designed and large enough to exercise and play in so we have spent many hours relaxing in the peace and quiet of the garden.
All in all this is a perfect place to come and enjoy Provencal life!
