Description from owner

Description

The house, on the outskirts of St. Dezery, is one of four homes which all used to be part of the farming community. Our Mas, which feels totally detached, has 6 large and comfortable double bedrooms (three with air-conditioning), 3 new bathrooms, a large, well-equipped, kitchen, laundry room, dining and sitting areas with UK television and dvd player. The 11M x 5M alarmed private swimming pool was completed in July 2011. The deep end has a depth of 2M. It can be heated which is especially useful for early or late season rentals. Please enquire. The pool area is accessed straight from the house. Two 6-8 seater tables are provided on the terrace, making it easy for outdoor dining. There is a gas BBQ and also a charcoal BBQ. Sun loungers are provided.

There are two adult bicycles and various bats and balls. The grounds are level and extend to approx. 4 acres and adjoin the surrounding vineyards, with views to the Cevennes and surrounding countryside.

Location description from owner

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

The region has sun drenched wide sandy beaches to the south. To the south west is Montpellier and further west along the coast, Sete, a lively town criss-crossed by canals. To the east is Aigues-Mortes - a splendid medieval town that was once coastal, but because of silting is now 7km inland. As well as being near to the beach, you can enjoy a leisurely river/canal boat trip through the marshlands and watch a display where the famous Camargue horses and riders round up the young bulls. Le Grau du Roi is 6km south with access to beaches. Here you will find The Camargue, a wild expanse of lagoons and marshy plains. There are numerous birds - the region is especially known for its flamingoes - and wildlife, together with herds of black bulls and white horses. Inland, the slopes behind produce 40% of all French wine and further north again are the southern uplands of the Massif Central crowned by Mont Aigoual, where there is skiing in the winter months. To the north west is Anduze with its steam trains to take you into the Cevennes.

The area is rich with Roman influence with perhaps the Arena and Maison Caree in Nimes, the amphitheatre in Arles, and the Pont du Gard being the most renowned.

Uzes

Uzes, with its numerous high towers and narrow streets is a delightful and historic town. It has a large and famous market every Saturday morning and a fruit and flower market on Wednesdays. It has a truffle festival in mid-January, a music festival in July and a bull run and fair over 3 days in August. In April there is a teddy bear festival at the toy museum in Arpaillargues, (between St. Dezery and Uzes), where stalls are set up selling their wares and demonstrating how to make the bears. The Festival of Extreme Sports is held Montpellier at the end of May which is followed by evening concerts. Sand sculpture festival is held at Cap d' Agde in May and has 5 nights of spectacular firework displays in July. The Feria of Nimes takes place in the arena in June - bullfighting and street festivals and the festival of Nimes in July has jazz, classical, ballet concerts as well as popular music (they have had Alicia Keys, James Blunt, Mika, Vanessa Paradis, Lenny Kravitz and many more). They have a celebration of the wine harvest in September over 2 days also with more bull fighting. There are art fairs here in September and November and an antiques fair in November.

At Aigues-Mort in August is the festival of their saint, St Louis, which is a colourful procession with a medieval tavern erected offering local delicacies and drinks. Nautical Jousting can be found in Sete in August with food and music on hand. Across the region are wine festivals in mid October and Christmas festivals in December.

“Mas de Pinet is a fantastic place to spend a great holiday!”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2012

Mas de Pinet embodies exactly what the region "Gard" stands for: Standing proudly surrounded by lush vineyards its specious buildings, large swimming pool, greatly equipped and beautiful kitchen together with the numerous luxury beds and bathrooms, it invites the holidaymakers for a worriless stay. Only a couple of miles distance Roman villages and constructions like Vizenobres, Uzes and the magnificent Pont du Gard ensure a great morning or late afternoon stay. We were so lucky to have the Tour de France at our doorstep (D982), giving all of us such a unique experience. Coming back to the Mas the Pinet the house blends in its environment and offers a safe haven to all. It’s definitely a must for those who are looking for a great stay with family and friends in one of Europe’s nicest regions.
