The Mas de L'Elze is a rambling collection of old stone buildings,
clinging to a sun-drenched, south facing slope on the edge of the
Ardechois Cevennes. In the past, these buildings served a multitude
of purposes typical of the local countryside: a silk-worm loft, a
drying and smoking area for chestnuts, a barn for storing hay and
raising geese and ducks for the "gavage". Now, they have been
painstakingly and lovingly transformed into a set of completely
independent luxury houses, from which you can fully appreciate the
beauty and tranquility of the surrounding countryside.



La Grange is a house on two and a half levels for six/eight people.
It is the original barn of the mas; the goats had only just left the
bottom floor when we started restoration!

The entrance at road level leads into the kitchen and dining area,
with a shower room behind. Above, there is a large mezzanine with
two single beds. The living room, with a magnificent view towards
the Tour de Brison in the south, is through a stone archway from the
kitchen. Just in case you choose to take our holidays out of season,
there is a large fireplace for the long winter evenings.

The two main double bedrooms are downstairs, where the goats used to
be! There is also a luxury bathroom and a "cave" complete with
washing machine.

Outside, there is a large stone-paved patio with a walled flower
garden; it is fully equipped with furniture and a BBQ.



The closest town to the Mas de L'Elze is Largentiere, dating back to
medieval times, retaining its walls, gates and ancient winding
cobbled streets. En route from there to Aubenas, you will find
Balazuc, designated one of the most picturesque villages of France.
The Tour de Brison, dominating the countryside to the south of
L'Elze, has an interesting wartime history.

The majestic gorges of the Ardeche, famous for their natural beauty,
are a short drive away. Closer by are the valleys of the Beaume,
Drobie and Chassezac, less well-known, but no less beautiful. The
mountain range of the Tanargue forms a backdrop to the setting sun
in the west. An unusual natural phenomenon to be found nearby is the
Bois de Paiolive, a labyrinth of white rocks eroded into strange and
fantastic shapes.

You can enjoy the countryside while relaxing in the sun with a glass
of local wine; alternatively, should you wish to get a little closer
to nature, many opportunities for horse-riding, mountain-biking and
hiking are available in the region. Canoeing is very popular and
bathing (or fishing?) in the clear, cool local rivers is a pleasure
not to be missed.

There are many caves to see in the region including Aven D'Orgnac
where there are often son et lumiere events.

Day-trips to Orange, Avignon, Nimes are within easy reach as are
vists to the Cotes du Rhone villages where you can sample the famous
