Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in St Sauveur de Cruzieres - Le Mas de la Source

Character self catering gites & large luxury pool in South France.

Our stone cottages are perfect for couples wanting a quiet holiday with a luxury pool and comfortable facilities.

Conveniently situated for Avignon, Nimes, Arles, and Uzes. With the Cevennes and its hills and valleys close by, we are perfectly situated for walkers and cyclists, & there is horse riding in the vicinity.

There are colourful markets in Barjac, Les Vans & St Ambroix all within easy reach. Uzes market is particularly colourful and even has its own web site.

The Ardeche Gorges are 20 minutes drive away and great for canoeing, kayaking or just sightseeing.

A beautiful part of France!

Though our cottages are part of one ancient stone building, they are at different levels and aspects and are all different, having the ambience of an ancient stone hamlet.

There is a lovely courtyard separating our house from the accommodation and even a small spring running by the buildings.

Share our Mediterranean garden and our luxury salt system 13.7 metre pool with its poolside bar.

Pool Area.: The luxury pool is set in a sunny Mediterranean garden of oleander, olive trees and native herbs & flowers. Dimensions are 13.7 metres (about 45 feet) by 5.5 metres and it has Roman Steps descending into the shallow end. There is a gentle gradient from 1.2 metres at the shallow end to a deeper area of about 1.5 metres. The pool has a salt water system which is both kind to the skin and repulsive to wasps & other unwelcome guests. We have installed a heat-pump system which provides warm water in an efficient eco-friendly way.

Our sun loungers are textyline, a special fabric designed for pool use. Our chairs have a similar fabric, especially for your comfort between dips.

Our pool-side bar carries welcome cold beers, chilled rosé from the village cave co-operative, & soft drinks.

Mediterranean Garden.: Our garden is planted with trees, shrubs and flowers native to the environment and climate of Southern France. You will enjoy the scent of lavender, rosemary and other herbs around the garden and the colourful Laurier Rose or Oleander planted near the pool. Jasmine and honeysuckle are everywhere!

In the garden we have staged a picnic area with rustic table beneath the cherry trees. For relaxing among the olive trees moments there is a 'Ballancelle'. For those bursts of activity we have created a boulodrome and even installed lighting if you fancy a lazy evening game.

Our 'espace Wi-Fi' by the fish pond is a comfortable place for you to connect to the internet.

Places to Visit in The Area: The Ardeche Gorges are a 20 minute drive away. The road that winds along the top of the Gorge from the famous Vallon Pont D'Arc has many stopping places from which to enjoy the spectacular views. At Vallon there are many hire centres where canoes and two seater kayaks can be paddled along the river through the gorges. A truly magnificent experience.

Uzes is a medieval town with many attractions and a maze of alleys and narrow streets to explore. The famous tree lined Place Aux Herbes is host to a colourful and fascinating Provencal market.

Avignon and the Palais des Papes is an easy drive away as are the ancient Nimes & Arles with their Roman remains.

Visit the Pont du Gard to see the remains of the Roman aquaduct, which is a World Heritage Site, or experience one of the spectacles held there in June.

Nearby, the Cevennes is a place of wild beauty, with ancient chapels in stone villages tucked in among the forested hills and valleys. This region is a hikers paradise.

More Details

Details for holiday cottage Le Fleuriste , 1 Bedroom, Sleeps 2, 1 Bathroom

This very individual & compact gite enjoys a salon with sofa, small pine dining table and 'coin cuisine'. There is a separate bedroom furnished with double bed & pine furniture. The bedroom leads to a light & airy en-suite shower room. The WC is accessed from the salon. With terracotta tiles to the floor, exposed beams, simple pine furniture and a comfortable bed, we think this is a perfect cozy retreat for a holiday making couple. To add to the easy living we have included a high spec cooker which has a four ring electric hob, oven and even a dishwasher! Stay here and you are nearest the pool! You have a little personal bridge over our little 'Lavat' or stream, and a neat shady breakfast patio on the other side of the bridge. You can barbecue here too! Le Fleuriste is about 23 square metres in total and is also equipped with a flat screen TV which will play music & video files from a USB key, and is hooked up to UK satellite TV and radio.
Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • non smoking only

About Phil North

Following a teenage hitch-hiking trip round France some (OK, many!) years ago, I vowed I would return to the Ardèche!

I finally made it...hope you will love it too!

Phil North purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Phil North chose St Sauveur de Cruzieres

Well, of course the location is perfect for a visit to the region, and we also enjoy the benefits of the village...the friendly village baker is across the road. There are trails to hike and run from the gate. And we were seduced by the ancient stone buildings, also great views...did I mention the village wine...?

What makes this cottage unique

Our home is a little stone hamlet with a fabulous garden...we love it...and so do our guests, many return every year!

Le Mas de la Source, a great find.

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the beautiful Le Mas de la Source in Saint-Saveur- de-Cruzieres and were delighted with our choice. This is a beautiful area of France and Tina and Phil, the owners, enthusiastically provided us with a wealth of information and suggestions to enable us to enjoy the area.
The Gites were of the highest quality and exceptionally well fitted out with the addition of BBQ's, patio tables and chairs.
The gardens and swimming pool are thoughtfully laid out and there is even a boules area to brush up your skills.
This has to be the best selection of Gites we have stayed in and nothing was too much trouble for Tina and Phil. We highly recommend this collection of beautifully converted buildings on the edge of the village.

Holidays don't come better than this!

Holidays don't come better than this!
  • 5 out of 5
From the moment that we arrived in the little un-spoilt village of Saint -Sauveur-de- Cruzieres in this beautiful part of France, we knew that we had discovered a small corner of paradise. Le Mas de La source is a truly beautiful collection of gites that has been carefully and lovingly restored by the owners, Tina and Phil. Every little detail has been thought of with holidays and enjoyment in mind. Each gite comes with its own patio or balcony, beautifully decorated with pot plants and climbers. It's the little touches that the owners have thought of that make le mas so unique and incomparable with anywhere we have stayed before. For example, the little barbeques, patio tables and chairs that are provided with each gite, the bar by the very inviting pool and the "terrain de boules" within the stunning gardens. What is very clear is that the owners really love living in this part of France and they want to share the whole experience with you. Le Mas was chosen by the owners with holidays in mind and what they have created is breathtaking. Sit down and have a drink with Tina and Phil when you arrive and they will pass on all their local knowledge and tips on what to see and do in this fantastic part of France. The accommodation itself was impeccably clean and of a very high standard. Comfortable beds, powerful showers, flat screen TVs etc. We cannot recommend this place highly enough…

Mas de la Source

Le Mas de la Source est un beau complexe avec plusieurs appartements pour 2 personnes. Nous étions dans "Le Fleurist". L'appartement, qui a une superficie relativement petite, est trés bien aménagé, confortable et dispose de tout ce dont on a besoin. L'entrée, accessible par un petit pont, donne au "Le Fleurist" l'atmosphère d'un petit château.
Pendant le petit-déjeuner ou le barbecue (Super Barbecue Weber) sur la petite terrasse , on a une belle vue sur la cour, les bâtiments et le jardin créé avec beaucoup d´amour. La piscine est très grande et dispose également d´un bar trés confortable.

Mas de la Source
Die Mas de la Source ist eine wunderschöne Anlage mit mehreren Ferienwohnungen für je 2 Personen. Wir wohnten in „Le Fleurist“. Die Wohnung hat für die relativ kleine Fläche eine optimale Raumaufteilung, ist gemütlich und bietet alles, was man braucht. Der Eingang, über eine kleine Brücke zu erreichen, gibt „Le Fleurist“ das Flair einer kleinen Burg.
Beim Frühstücken oder Grillen (Super Weber-Grill) hat man einen schönen Blick auf die Gebäude und den mit Liebe angelegten Garten. Der Pool ist sehr groß und bietet darüber hinaus eine gemütliche Poolbar.
Die Gastgeber Tina und Phil waren sehr nett. Sie gaben uns viele gute Tipps für Einkäufe, Restaurants, Sehenswertes und Freizeitaktivitäten, für die die Zeit viel zu kurz war. Das nächste Mal werden wir mehr die Annehmlichkeiten des Gîtes genießen.

Harmonie et Quiétude

  • 5 out of 5
Nous revenons juste d'un séjour au mas. Endroit de quiétude, d'harmonie: entre oliviers et piscine de rêve, les gites sont beaux, brillament rénovés dans leurs murs de pierres anciennes et les tenants était sympatiques et disponibles.

Nous partageons ci dessous notre entousiasme et notre satisfaction. Nous avons trouvé un lieu bien tenu, des tenants sympatiques et disponibles, une piscine et un jardin de rêve, un gîte bien équipé, propre et agréable. Ce mas est idéalement placé: à deux pas des Cévennes, de Vallon Pont d'Arc et Uzès.
Ce que nous avons particulièrement aimé ont été les moments à parler "veille pierre", randos, faune & flore, activités dans la région avec Phil; le petit village et sa boulangerie en face du mas; la rando de la Chapelle qui commence au pied du mas et l'espace du mas puisque nous avons toujours pu trouver un petit coin à nous en fonction du moment de la journée: balancelle, banc sous les oliviers, notre terasse, le petit terrain de pétanque, la grande piscine...

Enjoy the warmth and sunshine of Southern France, relax by our large pool and canoe or kayak the famous Gorges de l'Ardeche. Stay in one of our comfortable, character gites and you are well placed to enjoy a very special holiday. The Gorges de l'Ardeche are an easy 30 minute drive, Avignon and the Palais des Papes is nearby. The area enjoys many other interesting attractions and colourful markets.

Our village, Saint-Sauveur-de-Cruzieres has many old stone buildings and a small river flowing through its heart. Across the road from our Mas and gites is the boulangerie and we are a few steps from two bar - restaurants. We overlook the countryside with its vineyards and olive groves and dramatic hills in the near distance. Our climate is Mediterranean and we enjoy plenty of sunshine.

Our stone buildings resemble an old hamlet and are centred round its courtyards and a small spring that flows through the property, our colourful garden has lavender, olives, thyme, rosemary and the spectacular Oleander.

It would take many visits to see all the local attractions. There are grottos and caves to explore, plenty of castles and medieval villages and towns with their colourful markets to choose from.

The area is very popular with walkers & cyclists.

The Cevennes are a short drive away. Here, serious hikers can face challenging trails through the rugged and dramatic scenery.

The rivers Ardeche, Ceze, and Chassezac all have gorges to visit, swim or canoe through.

Other Activities: Canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, sightseeing, visiting markets & just relaxing!
