                                                                • Our property is rural with lots of wonderful walking/hiking available but not too many activities for young children. Kitchen has cooking utensils and small appliances (hand mixer, blender, toaster). A variety of herbs and spices are available. Three outdoor eating areas-porch, walled courtyard, front terrace with beautiful view. Attractively surrounded by trees, gardens, and overlooking vines and orchards in the valley. The ruins of a Roman temple and a medieval village are on the opposite side of the valley. An excellent restaurant is a 5 minute walk from the Mas in the direction of the village. Nearest village is Cavillargues (1 km) and the closest town is Bagnols-sur-Ceze (about 10 km).

                                                                  House Rules

                                                                  Sandra L.

                                                                  We had an absolute wonderful time staying at Mas de Viales. Andrew was so welcoming, providing helpful information about the area making us feel very comfortable and right at home.

                                                                  The views from the house are magnificent and unspoiled providing peace, rest and deep relaxation. Also while being tucked away on a private lane and totally private it is still only 3 minutes from the local village (boulangerie, pharmacie, massage / spa treatments!!)

                                                                  Great for walks with our dog.

                                                                  We'll be back!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thanks, S and M, for your visit and your kind comments. We're thrilled you enjoyed our little piece of paradise as much as we do. Vous serez toujours les bienvenus!

                                                                  A countryside retreat

                                                                  Keith W.

                                                                  This is a delightful place. It is located well outside the village down a little lane, and gives you total privacy and tranquility. It is well equiped with all you need and more! Inside, the downstairs living area is small and cosy, but who wants to be inside! The main bedroom upstairs is large with plenty of storage. The second bedroom downstairs is smaller but also cooler.

                                                                  The feature we really liked is that you have three different spaces outside for sitting and dining: under the verandah, which is lovely and shady, in the courtyard, or in the garden area with splendid views over vinyards and farm-land.

                                                                  There is a good restaurant within walking distance, but otherwise it's best to drive to Bagnols - about 15 minutes for the supermarket rather than use the limited facilities of the village. There are more restaurants than you can cope with in the pretty village of Goudargues which is not too far away, and within an hour you have the attractions of Avignon, the Pont du Gard, the old town of Uzes, the fantastic caves at Aven d'Orgnac, the vinyards of Chateauneuf du Pape to name but some - it is well located.

                                                                  It's owners are friendly, English speaking, and ready to help. We have enjoyed our second stay there and we are sure it won't be our last!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Many thanks, K and S, for coming to stay -- two years in a row! You're always welcome back, and we're delighted that you've so enjoyed our charming Mas de Viales!

                                                                  Wine Tasting and Castle Visits.

                                                                  Chocolate Brownie Addict!St Albans, England.

                                                                  We recently booked a very last minute stay at this property. I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

                                                                  It was lovely! A gorgeous area and excellent little house with bags of character. We were spoilt for choice for nice places to sit and drink the local (superb!) wine and the shade from near by trees was very welcome. There were pleasant walks near by and as the details describe - very convenient amenities. The local restaurant is fab! Try the flambé banana with chocolate sauce!

                                                                  We spent a full week driving to various interesting places – as suggested mostly not that child friendly (which suited us). Really ace things to see in this area.

                                                                  The house was also perfectly equipped and we didn’t lack any piece of equipment during our stay. Also, the local gentleman who serviced the property for the owners was very kind and friendly and the cleanliness was good – nice clean cotton sheets and towel etc.

                                                                  The only tiny criticism might be only that the floors needed mopping. They had been swept thoroughly but made your feet black with dirt in minutes if you walked in bare feet at all. There was about an inch of dirt/fluff under the bed too. However, after a few glasses of the Chateauneuf du Pape who cares!!?

                                                                  Thank you very much for a lovely holiday!
