About Vivienne Ghyoot
We live in South Africa, but have always loved France and wanted a piece of it. We came to the area by chance, loved it and knew we wanted to be in the area. After looking at more than 200 houses, throughout France, we knew this house had potential. The house was restored and furnished, and is a home from home for the family and for our guests.
Vivienne Ghyoot purchased this Farmhouse in 2008
Why Vivienne Ghyoot chose Vers-Pont-du-Gard
This property is on the border of Provence, a wine growing valley, situated near Uzes which is the last Duchy of France. We fell in love with Uzes and wanted something nearby. The house is only a stone's throw away from the Pont du Gard which is a World Heritage Site. We love the area as there is so much to see and do.

Perfect Mas for a group
Mas du Marechal was absolutely perfect for our group of five couples. It exceeded all of our expectations. The layout of the home is perfect for a large group. Everyone had the space they needed to be together or find a corner for alone time. The Mas is decorated lovingly and is extremely comfortable.
We were fortunate to have a chef for 3 nights of our stay. The chef had Everything he needed for preparing meals in this thoughtfully stocked kitchen. Plating meals for ten with multiple courses was not a problem either, due to the wonderful dishware that is provided.
We enjoyed all these meals on the terrace which easily accommodated all ten of us at the table. It could not of been more elegant, eating beautiful food outside with candlelight.
Vivienne suggested the market in Uzes. We all had a lovely Saturday morning exploring the market and Uzes. Thank you for that suggestion.
Day trips from the Mas were plentiful, the problem was choosing which to go to with only a week. Pont du Gard was amazing, we all enjoyed that trip.
Vers Pont du Gard is a charming village. We visited the bakery many times and La Grange, a perfect bistro to walk to for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and a snack.
All ten of use would come back to Mas du Marechal in a instant.
Thank you Vivienne and Madeleine for making our stay in Provence exceptional.
We have just returned from a fabulous week at Mas du Marechal. For us it was a perfect house for 2 families to share, with children from 4 months to 17 years everyone had enough space with some to spare! The kitchen is really well stocked, far more than we have experienced at other house rentals. We loved the interior design of the property and Vivienne has really transformed the property with her thoughtful and sympathetic refurbishment.
The children had great fun in the pool and we spent most of our time outdoors in the compact but wonderful garden.
The location of the house is second to none and we were only a short drive from major tourist attractions and towns. We particularly loved Uzes and also river swimming nearby.
Vers Pont du Gard is a lovely little town, we visited the bakery every day and enjoyed a really loved evening at La Grange. We had a wonderful stay at Mas du Marechal, both Vivienne and Madeleine were extremely hospitable and helpful and we're all looking forward to returning for our next summer holiday.
Thank you Fionnuala! We are really glad that you all had a good time at the house and in the area! Welcome back anytime.
A family gathering in Provence
Beautiful village mas in a central area of Provence allowing visits in nearby sites such as Nimes, Avignon and Uzès. Something new to discover every day. And after touring playing in the pool was a must for all. The mass is furnished in exquisite taste there is nothing missing! Fantastic venue for work and play! Highly recommended.
Absolutely beautiful house
We had the most amazing time at this beautiful house. We spent a week with 8 of us in total and could not have asked for a more beautiful place to spend our holidays. The house was equipped with everything we needed, the kitchen was beautiful and we loved how it was stocked with oils/vinegars/ herbs etc which we didn’t have to worry about buying. The short walk round to the boulangerie in the morning and the tapas bar in the evenings was so convenient. We couldn’t recommend the area and the house highly enough.
Fabulous Home: Mas du Marechal
Mas du Marechal more than lived up to our hopes and dreams. With 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, it fit our family of 3 generations marvellously. The house is not only well appointed but also very comfortable.. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need and more.
The kids lived in the pool and due to the heat the adults too swam every day.
The owner readily answered all my questions and sent information about the town and area well ahead of our time there.
The little village is delightful complete with a bakery.
Now all I need is an excuse to return to Mas du Marechal!
