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.

The owners of Mas de l'Aire are Canadian. They are based in Nairobi, Kenya and work in international development.
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.
