About Eric Latarche

We live in Montélimar, 35 km north. We are a couple (executive manager in an international firm and liberal medical profession) and have two children who are already going to school.

Eric Latarche purchased this mas in 2012

Why Eric Latarche chose Haut-Vaucluse

We bought this farmhouse in the region of origin of my great grandparents in order to move there in a few years, after we retire.

What makes this mas unique

The house is in a very quiet setting, in the middle of 6 ha of meadows, however, it is not isolated; the neighbouring farmhouse (an equestrian centre) is only 300 m away and accessible by the same way. There are three-century-old trees and climbing vines that bring some shade and calm to the house.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Thank you!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mas du Fer a Cheval at the beginning of September. For us (a group of 11 cyclists from England) it was just perfect. Access was easy, the kitchen was brilliantly equipped and the rooms were all very comfortable. We particularly enjoyed sitting out every evening on the long table outside enjoying our evening meals! In fact, we enjoyed it so much, we never went out for a meal! The pool was great, particularly after a long ride.

Loads of great cycling around, Ardeches was great and all around Ventoux was superb (Malaucene is less than 1 hour away).

Thanks so much!!

Un excellent séjour de Noël

  • 5 of 5

Pour trouver le "mas du fer à cheval", il est indispensable de suivre les indications détaillées fournies par M.Latarche. Sinon, vous pouvez vous faire "piéger" par le panneau annonçant la D63 au 1er rond-point de Lamotte-du-Rhône !

Le mas est plutôt isolé et donc très au calme ! C'est un régal de se lever au petit matin et de voir le mont Ventoux se profiler au loin (il a l'air tout près alors qu'il est à 70 km !).

Le mas est suffisamment grand et dispose de nombreuses "commodités" qui nous ont permis de faire cohabiter jusqu'à 18 / 20 personnes pendant 4 jours sans jamais avoir l'impression d'être "les uns sur les autres". Nous avons apprécié l'agencement de la cuisine/salle-à-manger avec la table qui permet de déjeuner à 20 sans être serré. La taille de la cuisinière et du four, les 2 frigos, nous ont permis d'assurer l'intendance et les repas très facilement.

Nous n'avons pas eu le temps de faire du tourisme mais une visite à Gigondas, tout proche, nous a permis de visiter quelques caves.

Nous recommandons ce gîte vraiment sympa !

une semaine de vacances entre amis

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué cette superbe et spacieuse maison avec un groupe d'amis (11 adultes et 9 enfants) ; nous avons passé une semaine formidable dans ce petit havre de tranquillité. Cette immense et ancienne maison, rénovée avec beaucoup de gout offre des chambres spacieuses et des espaces de vie très agréables. La grande terrasse, ombragée par de grandes voiles, est une invitation au repas familiaux et aux soirées de fêtes.

La piscine est son espace permettent de profiter des chaleurs en toute quiétude.

A quelques km de Pont St Esprit, toutes les commerces sont accessibles rapidement. Balades possibles au départ de la maison.

Vallée de la Ceze et de l'Ardèche à proximité, cette villa est idéalement placée.

La communication avec le propriétaire et la personne qui s'occupe de la maison a été simple et agréable.

(Seul tout petit bémol : la petite maison doit être libérée à 8h le jour du départ.)

En résumé un très beau mas provencal fait pour accueillir famille et amis ... tout y est ! à recommander !

Merci Eric pour ce séjour !

Owner's Response: Merci bien de votre message sur votre expérience positive. Encore désolé pour la petite maison à libérer de bonne heure; 400m2 à préparer pour les suivants nécessitent une organisation rigoureuse... Ça vous permet en contrepartie de gagner un peu de temps sur la pièce de vie que vous pouvez libérer un peu plus tard que 10h ... Au plaisir de vous recevoir à nouveau.

Superbe mas, spacieux et bien équipé.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué le mas une semaine au mois d’aout (15-25 pers) et nous avons passé un séjour inoubliable dans un cadre idyllique et calme.

La maison correspondait parfaitement à nos attentes. Grande pièce à vivre, belle chambre et jardin bien entretenu.

Je vous recommande cette adresse.

Merci pour cette semaine incroyable, nous reviendrons surement.

Très bon contact avec la personne qui nous a accueillis.
