Mas de la Bousquette is an ancient farm nestling in 7 acres of lovely grounds at the foot of the pretty hilltop village of Lussan
This spectacular courtyard is at the heart of the mas.
The gite opens onto a delightful terrace overlooking the courtyard. It also has a small, private 'secret' balcony which is a real suntrap.
BIENVENUE – “WELCOME” - to the beautiful Mas de la Bousquette - an idyllic place to stay at any time of year.
With a rare 5 star award for our gîtes from the French Tourist Authority, a Best Rental 2013 award from Trip Advisor and rated 25 in all France by Gites-de-France our guests are assured the warmest of welcomes, superb accommodation and unique hospitality to ensure a truly memorable vacation
Our lovely, and ancient, Provençal mas is set in 8 acres of gorgeous gardens and meadows below mediaeval Lussan, one of the ‘Plus Beaux Villages de France’ . Its tranquility will charm you from the moment you step inside its spectacular Roman-style inner courtyard.
We are only 15 minutes from mediaeval Uzès with its famous foodie markets, close to Avignon, Nîmes, the Pont du Gard, the Camargue and beaches of the Mediterranean, in the foothills of the mountains of the Ardèche and Cévennes. Surrounded by the olive trees, sunflowers, poppies and lavender of Provence, and in the midst of totally unspoiled wilderness, this is the perfect place to stay while discovering all that this region of southern France has to offer.
For outdoor enthusiasts there are endless opportunities to hike, bike, canoe, swim or canyon. For culture vultures there are Roman antiquities galore, charming Provençal villages, antiques markets and potteries, galleries and museums.
Here you can experience life at a slower pace. After a day out even the most energetic will welcome to peace of our gorgeous gardens and enjoy a dip in our walled pool. Sit back by the pond, enjoy the wildlife, admire the views, sample the local wines and contemplate your evening barbecue. We guarantee you will enjoy it!
The gardens are a delight for the senses – walkways covered with wisteria, roses and clematis; a walled pool garden full of Mediterranean and exotic sub-tropical plants; an ornamental pond, alive with colourful koi carp; banks of lavender, rosemary, cistus and oleander
An informal and fun supper à la Provençal once a week gives you a chance to meet other guests and learn more about the area.
Our three spacious gîtes sleep from 2-6 people. Awarded 5 stars by the French Tourist Authority, you will want for nothing. Beds, pillows and linen are the best, and kitchens are equipped to meet every cook’s requirements. It is our aim to make our guests feel at home and relaxed so they can’t wait to come back again.
Maximum capacity of all our accommodation is limited to 10, but 6 or 8 more usual, which means the pool and grounds are never crowded. Our gîtes booked together make excellent accommodation for 2 or 3 families holidaying together.
Each gîte has its own private terrace or garden where you can take enjoy a leisurely breakfast or sip something cool on a summer’s evening. Guests can enjoy our heated pool from March to October.
EATING You will find a “welcome” basket of essentials in your gîte when you arrive. Guests arriving late can request a light supper to await their arrival for a small additional charge. There are two good restaurants and cafes in the village – a 5 minute walk, and many more within a few minutes in the car.
We bake bread and pastries every morning – guests can order before they go to bed. Our small ‘shop’ stocks home made preserves, a selection of wines, beers and soft drinks and a few essentials along with home cooked frozen meals for those nights when you just can’t face cooking. We are embarking on a project to restore the old potager and hope soon to supply guests with out homegrown, organic vegetables.
