Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

The historic area of Languedoc-Roussillon has been attracting visitors since before the Romans. The Emperor Nero had the coins minted here to pay for his soldiers from the silver which was mined just outside Lodeve.

The climate is typically Mediterranean. Long, hot summers with cicadas singing their love songs in the umbrella pines.


Lodeve

Lodeve is a fascinating ancient town. Once walled and controlled by the church. The Cathedral of St Fulcran dates from the 13th century and is adjoined by the stunning bishops' palace and park - which now houses the Mairie and public park. Bishops have reputedly included George (of the Dragon fame) and Bernard Gui (immortalised by Umberto Eco in his book the Name of the Rose).
Miracles have happened here in town and dinosaurs have walked around it.

The Museum Fleury of Lodeve is one of the most renowned museums in France with a permanant collection of Paul Darde's work and works by well known impressionists. Visiting exhibitions attract visitors from all over Europe.

Lodeve is also the nearest town to Lerab Ling. This is the largest Tibetan Buddhist Temple and Teaching Centre in Europe, and the Dalai Lama will be making his second visit here later this summer.

Lodeve is perfectly located for countryside and seaside trips out. While the town itself hosts a series of colourful events throughout the summer, in particular. In July the world famous poetry festival of the Voix de la Mêditerranée happens each year at the end of July. There is a Saturday weekly market in the town which has been happening regularly since the 10th century.

“A great holiday in comfortable accommodation in a super location in France”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2013

We had a very relaxing holiday at Le Mazet, with great weather and the pool to ourselves. Bob was a super host, very helpful and with lots of local information - when we wanted to extend our time in Lodeve (and with Le Mazet booked) he went the extra mile and found us accommodation in another villa he knew was available. The local towns and sights are very interesting and all set in a wonderful scenic landscape. A holiday we will certainly have many fond memories of and a beautiful part of France we will visit again!

“Most relaxing holiday ever”

Reviewed 11 Nov 2012

A lovely little cottage tucked away in the owner's garden at the edge of town. Bob couldn't have been more welcoming - fresh croissants on the first morning, restaurant recommendations, lending books to read etc - and the setting was gorgeous. The weather was perfect and we ended up spending lots of time just lazing by the lovely private pool and cooking fab local meat and veg on the BBQ provided. Lots of things to do locally too though - our best was canoeing down the stunning Gorges d'Herault (if you do this, take a picnic!).

“Relaxing,well located with a great owner”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2012

Le Mazet was a revelation a beautiful old wine store (we think) really well converted by its owner Bob. The kitchen was well equiped and the garden area was secluded and convenient. The pool and the first floor terrace were wonderful plusses. The property is really well situatedwith easy access to the beaches in the South. Our one regret was that the Buddist temple which is very closeonly opens to visitors on Sunday afternoon. So be aware as it definately looks worth a visit. The gite was terrificbut as far as we were concerned the biggest plus point was Bob himself.He was great,always friendly,lots of stories and extremely helpfull. We hope to return in the near future.

“An attention to detail which allows for a calm and worry-free stay”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2012

Bob, the owner, was extremely welcoming. He was thoughtful and attentive to detail; friendly but without being intrusive. His years of experience in managing a holiday let shone through; everything we could possibly need was provided and everything was arranged and set out in a clear and uncumbersome way. It meant we could get straight into the holiday without sorting out time-consuming domestic details. The property is situated at the heart of some excellent walking areas and a few minutes' drive or bus ride from the town of Lodève. We went for the Voix de la Méditerranée poetry festival and Les Mazes was a calm and peaceful place to reflect on and process the creativity energy of the days spent at the festival.

“A relaxing stay at a charming gite with a great host.”

Reviewed 16 Jan 2012

What can we say - Le Mazet was just the break we were looking for. We arrived quite late in the evening and Bob came to greet us and show us round the property, making us feel immediately welcome and feeling welcome was a trend that continued throughout our stay. The well presented Gite was clean throughout on arrival and had everything in terms of furniture, appliances, utensils etc. we could have asked for as well as a BBQ and a couple of bikes. The sofa bed was the most comfortable one we had ever slept on and the thick stone walls meant the gite was just the right temperature. Lodeve is a charming town typical of the area and has a great market and there are many other towns, beautiful countryside and the coast quite close by and Le Mazet was a great base for going and visiting places and then coming back to the quiet.

“Tranquil and beautiful”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2011

Le Mazet is a property with lots of character. It is clean and well equipped for everything that you may need for self catering including a bbq. Bob, the owner, is extremenly welcoming and helpful with handy tips on places to see, activites and the best food places in the area. Bikes which are always available were great to explore. Lodeve is close enough to use the facilities but you are far enough away to relax and enjoy the quiet. It is a fab location to explore the region, we came for outdoor activites but wanted to see more and more of the historical sights. Far too much to see and do in the week that we had. Would come back.

“Our best holiday together to date”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2011

On arrival at Le Mazet the owner, Bob, gave us a warm welcome and was ready with advice throughout our stay with tips on places to visit and eat. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had all the utensils and facilities we needed for our self catering stay. We had exclusive use of the pool which adjoins Le Mazet and the owner's property and the pool is shaded from view on all sides. We had a very relaxing and peaceful stay and would definitely recommend Le Mazet. Additionally Lodeve is in a good position to explore the region and we particularly enjoyed our day in Carcassonne.

“The perfect, relaxing getaway”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2011

My partner and I enjoyed the excellent hospitality, accommodation and surroundings of La Mazet. The cottage is quaint yet comfortable, making a perfect base for cycling and exploring the nearby picture-esque villages. The pool is clean and secluded, and the bikes, (which are included), are the perfect way to get around. Would thoroughly recommend!
