FANTASTIC VIEWS, PEACEFUL SETTING, NEAR NIMES AND MONTPELLIER, PERFECT FOR FAMILIES AND GROUPS

St Come et Maruejols Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 9. 4 bedrooms + nursery. Mas de Mahystre is a unique and beautiful 18th Century country house, surrounded by mature gardens with a private pool, BBQ and an enchanting treehouse. The views of the vineyards and hills are stunning and you will be delighted with the local shops and markets which are a five minutes drive away. This spacious, traditional property with all the modern conveniences, is ideally located within easy reach of Nimes, Montpellier, the Cevennes and the Mediterranean Sea.

Mas de Mahystre is a stunning country house (Maison de Maitre) situated a mere 20 minutes from the Roman City of Nimes and 35 minutes from the vibrant City of Montpellier. This beautiful house feels secluded and peaceful but if you can drag yourself away from the pool, there are so many exciting places to visit within an hours drive, including the gorgeous beaches near Montpellier, the Pont du Gard and the Camargue. It is a great house for a large family get together, a couple of families, a group of friends or even a secluded retreat from the world.Recently renovated, you will adore the spaciousness and originality of the house which is surrounded by an enchanting garden, with a delightful private pool, large traditional BBQ, lovely covered terrace and the treehouse is a perfect spot for soaking up the views. The house was originally a hunting lodge for the lords in Calvisson but after 200 years was expanded into the manor house for a large wine producer and notable Nimes merchant.

Note:

Air conditioning is really not required in the height of summer as the thick stone walls really keep the heat out. However fans are in each room.

Wonderful family vacation

Last summer my family and I enjoyed a wonderful two weeks at this home which was full of the character and flavor of France we so love. Sipping rose with a novel on the terrace while our daughters swam away the afternoon was a wonderful way to spend our lazy days. When we were feeling more like being out and about we had many, many wonderful day trips to nearby markets, scenic villages, nature and archeological sites. We were also lucky enough to enjoy a weekend of local music in conjunction with a national festival. The people of St. Come were very welcoming and gracious. On one of our last days we took a breath-taking horse back ride through the hills and grapevines surrounding the nearby hamlet. Last but not least, the owners are very gracious and accommodating and were a pleasure to rent from. Not to be missed!

The perfect house......

We had a wonderful time at St Comes. Two grandparents, four parents, three children ranging in age from two and a half to eight weeks.
The house surpassed our expectations in every way - the photos on the website do not do it justice.
Every detail was thoughtful, elegant yet simple and comfortable. It felt warm, friendly and generous (ie lovely sheets and books, lots of games, toys, great sunbeds, comfortable beds, lots of space, and - delight of delights in July - an ice-making fridge!
My personal best bit was walking down the curved staircase each morning and looking out of the hall window to a stunning view. You'll know what I mean if you ever see it!
The toddler lived in the pool; the adults among us enjoyed long lazy evenings on the verandah.
Too good to be true? Not at all!
Take my advice, go for two weeks..it was really very hard to leave after just one!
We made trips to the coast and The Camargue, nearby towns and of course, Intermarche which is very big and superbly stocked.
If the opportunity arose, we would all go back like a shot.

We had a fantastic family holiday in this beautiful house. There was space and comfort and the owners have obviously tried to think of everything. The accommodation was excellent with plenty of bedding, pillows and towels. There was even some wood left to light the open fire in the dining room as the nights were still cool. We will definitely return.

A perfect holiday home!

My husband and I stayed here with friends (including their 2 young girls) for a week in June 2012. Arriving at Mas de Mahystre you are struck by his beauty. It is a stunning French Mas which has been beautifully cared for. The feeling of space and tranquility is perfect for relaxing in and as it has been a family home for many years, it just works as a house to live in for a week or two. The outside is fabulous. The beautiful swimming pool perfect to cool down in after a sunbathe, a game of boules, a BBQ or a climb in the tree house!
The bedrooms are beautiful and spacious, plenty of room for lots of children or a couple of families. Even the sheets and towels are sumptuous.
The surrounding area is great for exploring. Nimes and Montpellier a must for eating, shopping and cafe culture! The beach isn't far either and if it look on the owner's blog, there is masses of info on everything.
Thank you for a lovely stay, we will be back!

A week in the south of France with kids

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 20, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
Beautiful traditional French manor house every bit as good as the pictures, lovely pool and garden and the tree house was popular with the kids. Great kitchen, fridge with ice & iced water dispenser a big hit. Easy arrangements. Great for a large/two families. All in all highly recommended - only travel time to attractions drops a star (for us)! Surrounded by fields, beautifully quiet with lovely traditional French villages although most facilities a little too far to walk for the less hardy(2km) but great for bikes. Kayaking and river swimming in the Gardon highly recommended - it's the best way to see the Pont du Gard. The tree adventure park on outskirts of Nimes on the D127 Route de Poulx small calm and fun for all ages (open every day in summer). Seaside at la Grande Motte 40 mins is fun but busy. Most sights at least 40 mins drive but the pool welcomes your return! You can travel direct to Avignon (1 hour away) by Eurostar on summer Saturdays.
