LUXURIOUS VILLA, EXCELLENT FACILITIES, VAST GROUNDS, LARGE SALINE POOL 16X7M

Monteils House Rental Photos and Description

Peace and tranquil luxury, Satellite TV, Wifi Internet, Equipped for children

This beautiful 18th century house is completely peaceful and secluded, described by guests a 'mini paradise'. The spacious interior allows large groups to spend a holiday together without feeling crowded. Inside the house the furnishings are to a very high standard with a Lacanche oven and American style fridge freezers. There is a wide screen TV, HiFi stereo system, WiFi Internet and a large selection of books and videos.

Outside there are two separate patios for eating and relaxation. There is a large (16m x 7m) swimming pool with an automatic cover. Adjacent is a pool house which provides additional accommodation and a comfortable place to have lunch in the heat of the day. The surroundings of the property are laid to lawns and terraces with shade provided by native Oak trees. There are also substantial recreational facilities including swings, slides, trampoline with safety net, cricket nets and a football goal. Local chefs are available to help with cooking (for a fee). Babysitting is available on request.

Locally there is a rich cultural history and plenty for those who want to explore. There are multiple historic sites close by including the Market town of Uzes and well as the Roman city of Nimes.

The aerial walkway is great fun there are two different ones at 5km in Bagard and 15km at Anduze both are great fun and can accommodate children from approximately four years of age. Adults can take advantage of the 'black run' high in the trees which represents quite a challenge.

Canoeing from Collias takes you right underneath the historic Pont de Gard along the river Gard and you are picked up after about 7 km and driven back to your car. A stop off for rock jumping into the river is a must. There are cafes at the bridge and you can stop for lunch or ice cream.

The nearest beach is 'La Grande Motte'; 10km of gently sloping sandy beach. The beach cafes offer excellent food and you can rent sunbeds and pedals. There is municipal parking next to the dunes. St Marie de la Mere and the Camargue National Park are easily reached for a day trip and the scenery and pink flamingos are amazing.

Historic Sites and adventures.: The mediaeval towns of Vezenobres and Uzes are close. Uzes and Anduze have wonderful markets. You can take the steam train from Anduze and visit the Bambousarie on the way. There many museums; Lavander; Haribo (sweets) Bee keeping, Motorbikes. The caves at Trabuc are fantastic and for the brave hearted it is possible to book a guided underground cave safari. Nimes and Arles both have Roman amphitheatres where live concerts are held. There is a theatre in Ales and there are music festivals held in Uzes and Nimes. Wine tasting is a must....the local rose is particularly good and not expensive.

For the energetic there is paragliding at Seynes, rafting in the Cevenne and the Ardeche,

Go kart in Ales ( National Circuit-the largest in France. There is a motor rally car circuit approximately 5km away where National meetings are held.

Fishing is available both for fun and for serious fishermen in the local rivers. Hunting is possible in season by arrangement.

Hiking, Bikes, Horse riding,Spa Resort: The Cevennes national Park offer fabulous opportunities for cycling/ Mountain biking, hiking and pony trekking. There are bridle ways and cycle paths close to the house. Bikes can be hired in Ales.

There is a fumade or natural spring spa resort in a town close by where treatments can be booked to promote health and well-being. Golf is available at Nimes and Uzes. In the Winter skiing is possible in the Cevennes at Mount Lozere.

For those who prefer to simply chill out and relax the house and surrounding land is absolutely tranquil.It is possible to stay in the house all week and not feel bored. Perfect for those clients who want to leave the stress of busy lives behind them.

The cleaner is happy to come in and give daily support or cook meals on request. Payment is arranged with her directly.

There is a fabulous Auberge close to the house which always has the most superb menu. Try out the eight course gastronomique menu if you dare!! Very reasonably priced.

About Owner: Lesley Roberts. Managing: Sebastian Roberts & Sophie Ivil

We have a large family and we have built and developed the house and grounds to suit and accommodate people of all ages. It is our holiday home and and like our guests to share the comforts our home provides. We regularly have three generations staying in the house simultaneously and there is so much space that it never feels crowded. It's difficult to demonstrate this in the photos....so check out the video to see the expansive nature of the house and grounds.

Owner: Lesley Roberts. Managing: Sebastian Roberts & Sophie Ivil purchased this house in 2000

This is a home from home. We had a fantastic holiday staying in a friends house close by. When we saw this beautiful house set in such beautiful surroundings we were smitten and have remained so ever since. year by year adding new features to enjoy.

This year we have added a complete perimeter fence and we are adding two en-suite shower rooms at easter. We are developing a facebook page so our clinets can share their holday experiences.

What makes this house unique

Totally peacefull with fanatstic facilities.

Absolutely fantastic for family get togethers.

Also perfect for adult groups to get away from it all.

Winter holidays are really cozy with the log fire and winter sunshine.

There is so much to enjoy locally from the camargue natural park to the beach at 'La Grande Motte' whether you want to relax or explore there is something for all tastes.

A days skiing is possible at Mount Lozere. All guests feel completly relaxed after a stay here.

Horse riders who know how to ride have the benefit of borrowing our ponies should they so wish. ( Riding is however at your own risk and due to insurance we cannot supply supervision). There is a riding school in the next village.

seductive and secluded rustic idyll

  • 5 of 5
It is hard to imagine that such a tranquil property could exist close to the amenities that make any holiday enjoyable. This property lives up to the description provided by the owners - and also has much more to offer! There are attentive local cleaners and groundsmen who can answer most questions put to them, and the property is extremely well maintained. The ultimate question a prospective visitor could ask might be - would you return? I have for 4 years! If you go, you will see why!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Mas de Gardies is a stunning retreat tucked away in South of France near Ales. I've keep going back, always with a large group of friends, to make the most of the beautiful pool, sunshine, croquet, beers, candlelit al fresco dining til late with local wine, and the multitude of cosy rooms indoors. It's easy to forget that the nearby towns are also charming, if you make it outside the grounds!

I can't recommend it highly enough!

Superb for groups of all ages.

  • 5 of 5
Have stayed here three times now, each time with a large group of friends. The house is perfect for this, being spacious enough that peace and tranquility are available on request. The large kitchen and lounge perfect for the colder evenings, whilst the outdoor table and pool area great for the hot days and nights.

Beds all comfortable, house clean and well presented. The local area is excellent. All in all, highly recommended! I hope to return soon.

Fantastic place to socialise with friends/relax

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed in this property with friends on three separate occasions, and have enjoyed each trip thoroughly. The property is modern, well equipped, spacious and comfortable, with wonderful spaces for a big group to cook, eat and relax together both inside and out - as well as being spacious enough that you can escape and be by yourself with a book for a while. Would highly recommend a holiday here.

A beautiful home in glorious countryside

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed here on two occasions with Sebastian, the manager - it's a beautiful home and perfect for a holiday for a group of friends. The house is elegant, has huge dining tables indoor and out - perfect for long lunches of bread, cheese, and the local rosé. The other sides of the house feature a lawn on one side (excellent for a bit of slightly rugged croquet) and a large pool and poolhouse on the other. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and there are restaurants and medieval towns in driving distance, so even if you tire of the house and pool (which would be very difficult) you'll find plenty of things to do on days out.

The centre of the house is a huge, barrel-shaped lounge, which is perfect for relaxing in the evenings, and there are bedrooms enough for a dozen people, especially if some guests stay in the poolhouse. I highly recommend this house for a blissful summer holiday!
