Overview

About the property

Country house, 11 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 20 people

The foothills of the Cévennes mountains positively embrace this stone chateau in Languedoc. Sitting at the top of the 19th century tower with a 360 degree view, you’ll feel like a king or queen of the forest below. The three reception halls and yoga/seminar room make this a clever choice for a company retreat or family reunion.The wide, wonderful private pool is the centerpiece of outdoor life at this holiday chateau. No less stunning are the mountain views from the dining terrace, or from the many nooks and crannies in the chateau itself. The 11 bedrooms are all furnished simply, letting hills outside adorn the space. The kitchen is a special treat - it has been beautifully updated, yet it's still in harmony with the old stone ceiling above.Tucked on the edge of the Cevennes National Park, there are unlimited outdoor adventures to be had from your holiday chateau. Be ready to retreat from the world - the nearest tiny town (Banne) is a 25 minute walk away. Not just avid hikers be in heaven, there are natural wonders nearby everyone will love; in particular you'll want to visit the caves and grottoes of la Cocalière.

About Oliver's Travels - France

Simply Chateau was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne. Oliver & Ravi, the two directors of the company, were amazed at what terrific value these stunning chateau rentals represented and decided to spread the word. Soon after the website www.simplychateau.com was born.

We have something for everyone from charming manor houses representing great value for money to fully catered & serviced luxury chateau, all handpicked and chosen with care.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As a group of 4 families we wanted space but also socialising areas where we could meet for meals and drinks. Chateau de Mazelle offered all of those things. The pool was a gorgeous centre point every day for the children - and the adults - to splash around and have fun. The dining terrace became the meeting point each day for fun and laughter - the dumb waiter lift from the kitchen was priceless for serving up the meals each day. The thunder storm we experienced from the terrace was one never to be forgotten - stunning! A day trip to the local caves was great for the kids but to be honest, everything we needed was at the chateau. A fantastic location for a group holiday. We will absolutely and definitely be back. The views alone are enough to get us back again. Heaven on earth!

Reality was altogether different

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 20 had high expectations having gained a sense of what was in store from your website.But the reality was altogether different. On arrival we were all strangely silent, genuinely shocked by the extraordinary beauty of your home and its setting. On our first day we didn't leave the house and it was hard to drag ourselves away after that but the stunning landscape beckoned and on subsequent days, guided by your thoughtful guide, we explored the region on bikes, foot and on one day picnicked at the watering hole by the bridge where most of the children and adults including our four year old jumped off the cliff into the water.

We ate like kings, cooking for ourselves every day in your extremely well equipped kitchen - delights such as freshly made bread, ice cream, barbecued squid and prawns. On our last night Ino cooked for us.We worried for him because there was such culinary talent among our party we thought he would be unable to reach the high standards to which we had become accustomed. But we were proved wrong. He cooked a splendid feast and it was a real pleasure to relax so completely on our last night.

The stunning pool was in constant use when we were home...but the pool was not only a joy for the kids but also for the adults - it is so rare for a house pool to be so long that it allows for a proper swim.

Thank you both for allowing us to spend the week in your incredible home.There was total consensus that this was the best holiday any of our families had had.

It will not surprise you to learn that we would love to return. So please, please if you have any spaces left for next summer do allow us to book again.

With much gratitude and thanks.

Map

The nearest airport is Nimes and the nearest town is Banne. Banne hosts an art festival during the summer and is a meeting point for various guided hikes.

Grab a map from the living room and set off into nature. Here on the edge of the Cevennes national park there’s so much to explore - forests, rivers and viaducts, or take a 25minute walk downhill to the medieval village of Banne. Nearby are the deep caves and grottes of la Cocalliere. Swim in our new 21 metre pool or take a short drive to an idyllic swimming hole, complete with enormous rocks and waterfall.

There are tennis courts in St. Paul le Jeune and les Vans. Biking in the cevennes means miles of unspoilt scenery, wildflowers, wildlife, and few human encounters. The Ardèche river with its famous Pont d'Arc is a short drive away. It is easy to rent canoes and you can spend the day floating down the river or sun bathing on the shores.
