Dreamy holidays and rest

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I spent one week with a group of 9 friends at this magnificent property and it was just fantastic! The property itself is magnificent and the space is not only beautiful and harmonious but large and cozy. The kitchen is such a delight for cook lovers..., the fire places, the tower...! Our group was very diverse in terms of age and it was not an inconvenient to anyone; everybody found its own privacy and space. We enjoyed the garden, organised a couple of barbecues and sunset snacks at the pool. Just wonderful!

There is a lot to see and visit in this region at a quite short distance: from the village of Uzès (a jewel), to Nîmes, Avignon and Arlès, 3 lively and interesting cities with a rich Roman heritage.

Our stay was just perfect. The pool that made the delights of swimmers every single day of our stay.

A perfect location for a unique stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Mas la Tour for a unique occasion: getting married! Alain the owner was very generous in letting us stay with our closest family and friend for a marvelous stay and preparing our wedding day. The place is gorgeous, spacious, renovated with style and originality. The gardens are full of wonder for kids, and the outside dinners were just perfect. Saint-Siffret is a beautiful, quiet, small village, very close to a lot of wonderful places to visit, from Uzes to Avignon. And once again, I would like to thanks Alain for his generosity, reactivity, biut also his taste in transforming the place into what it is today.

C'est magnifique!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both properties for 14 of us and it was perfect in every way. The kids so enjoyed the medieval tower, we all enjoyed the pool & gardens, the adults loved all the local wineries and ease of life in Uzes. Alain, the owner, was top notch. We had Wifi issues (with 6 teenagers image the horror) and Alain sent a repair person the very next day. He was so focused on making our trip the best it could be....and it was. The location is great - quick daytrips to Avignon, Arles, Nimes. And we all fell in love with strolling around Uzes with our straw bags (for use from the Mas), especially during Market Days. We will definitely be back!

GORGEOUS EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5

Both houses perfectly combine historic character and modern functionality. Gracely furnished and charming. Rooms are spacious and well-equipped. Kitchen is large and full of charm. Different living areas, lots of outdoor spaces to eat or just curl up with a good book, enjoying nature. Special mention to the lovely gardens, so beautifully maintained and with many varieties of plants and trees. We very much enjoyed the peacefulness and privacy of the property. A gem!

Owners were extremely flexible, kind and helpful.

We were surprised by the region, at least as beautiful as Tuscany. Charming St. Siffret, gorgeous medieval town Uzès with its colourful market, UNESCO-treasures Arles and Avignon, spectacular Roman aqueduct Pont du Gard... beyond expectations.

Briefly: close to perfection experience!

Brilliant, charming & beautiful French farmhouse!

  • 5 of 5

La Mas is a great farmhouse to get away from it all. We had both properties for the week which provided luxury yet rustic accommodation for 20 of us. We really could not have asked for more! The houses, were stylish, historical and very well appointed.

The location of the house is ideal to explore Saint Siffret, the beautiful town of Uzes and Pont du Garde.

Alain and Bea (owners) were incredibly helpful, forthcoming and easy to deal with and we would gladly go back to La Mas.

You will not be disappointed!

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We (3 adults and one small child) stayed in the "mas" for 5 days. There are lots of opportunities for trips and various activities (canoeing, horse riding, markets, medieval villages, wine tasting, good restaurants.....) in the area, but the best of all was to relax in the garden in the afternoon, swimming in the pool and enjoy the beautifully renovated farm house. Everything was clean and well maintained, particularly the kitchen is very cosy and offers all what you need to make a good dinner of the local products.
