A sample of comments from visitors to the house. We greatly love the Cévennes and Le Vieux Mas so it is a genuine pleasure when visitors respond to it as we do.

Perfekte Erholung. Sehr angenehmes Objekt, gut und geschmackvoll eingerichtet, sehr ruhig gelegen, sehr kooperativer und praktischer Vermieter. RH, Solingen, August 2019

Großartig! Das Haus liegt idyllisch, fernab jeden Trubels an einem Hang oberhalb des Dorfes. Man hat einen wunderschönen Blick und komplett seine Ruhe. Man muss immer ein bisschen fahren, man braucht also ein Auto. Das Haus ist sehr rustikal aber super ausgestattet. Alan war sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit und würden die Unterkunft definitiv weiterempfehlen. DT, Germany, July 2019

Nous avons passé un super séjour pour le nouvel an. La maison est spacieuse et très bien équipée. Le propriétaire très sympathique et réactif! Le seul bémol prévoir des provisions pour le séjour car la maison est un peu éloignée de tous commerces.  VL, Hérault, January 2019

I can't tell you how much we enjoyed being in the house - we really want to return to the area one of these days. Having seen a bit of seasonal change, it must be a wonderful experience to see the transition from autumn to winter. We were so tickled to have seen the colors--even our last drive up the mountain, the chestnut tree leaves looked like stained glass. Glorious!  CW & MK, Florida, October 2018

Le mas (très bien équipé) est très agréable avec une vue superbe; vacances très reposantes.  PS, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, July 2017

We had a fantastic time. The house was lovelier than I remembered it and we loved sitting out on the upper terrace, the weather was very hot, so we went swimming in the rivers and had a great time taking a donkey for a walk. Thanks so much for giving us the chance to fall in love with the area again, I know that we will be back.  AK, Kent, July 2016

We've had another really enjoyable holiday at Le Vieux Mas. This is the perfect place to relax and unwind- it's tempting to sit all day on the terrace admiring the views but we made good use of the information about walks, markets and nearby attractions so many thanks for that. It's a comfortable and welcoming house - we'll definitely be back!  AN & KS, York, June 2015

Once again we had a fabulous holiday at Le Vieux Mas this year, our 10th. Bird highlights this year included 2 Golden Eagles on the Causse Mejean and Melodious Warbler singing near the house. We also saw Roe Deer on the meadow as we spent time just relaxing around the house and enjoying lovely walks. We wondered how you ever found the house in the first place. What a treasure it is.  C & PL, Lancashire, May 2015

We would like to thank you for a lovely stay at Le Vieux Mas, it was as wonderful as we remembered it to be. We really enjoyed the new terrace, especially on the warm evenings, and of course cooking in your wonderful kitchen with local produce and ingredients was a joy. We gathered apples, walnuts and chestnuts, the latter a pleasure to gather and quite a pain to peel after cooking! Thank you once again. S & AA, E Yorks, September 2014

Nous avons passé d’excellentes vacances au « Vieux Mas ». En plus d’une vue panoramique sur les Cévennes dont nous avons pu profiter depuis une magnifique terrace, la maison est très bien équipée et décorée avec beaucoup de goût. De plus, les commerces du village le plus proche permettent de se faciliter le quotidien. Un logis idéal pour des vacances ressourçantes.  FM, Paris, August 2014

We really loved our stay for various reasons: the house is very comfortable, with beautiful views. We also appreciated the discreet and warm hospitality of our host. In recent years we have spent many holidays in the Cevennes and this house is by far the best. As far as nature is concerned, the house is very well located for many beautiful walks but also for cooling down in hot periods.The nearest small town provides good restaurants and shops with very kind service.  A&MG, Amsterdam, July 2014

We loved staying at le Vieux Mas. It was perfect. Loved all our cycling and walking - no need to get in the car. Saw amazing flowers and birds. Your nature logs are incredible, so is all the information on the region. The house is in a beautiful, nicely remote situation with wonderful views from the lovely terrace. Also the most well equipped gite we have ever stayed in. Love to go back lots. DL, West Midlands, May 2014

The holiday was superb and the house was all we could have wanted. It came tops over other places we have stayed in. Sometimes just the little things can make a difference. In 11 years of holidaying together, yours was the first house to have a proper set of cook's knives, kitchen scales and a measuring jug. We had a great time, very relaxing, peaceful. C & LW, Staffordshire, September 2013

We really enjoyed our stay in your lovely vieux mas. Such comfy beds that I struggled to wake up each morning, a 'home from home' kitchen to cook in, and the boys very much appreciated the table tennis and table football.  Many thanks for a great stay. A, M, J & S C, Hampshire, July-Aug 2013

We had a lovely week in le Vieux Mas - thank you! We loved the location and the house - especially the terrace with its views.  CT, Sweden, July 2013

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your wonderful house in the spectacular Cevennes for the last week, and for making the house so welcoming, with everything we could possibly need. We have had a lovely week - all I can say is, a week is just not long enough! There is just so much to see and do, especially when also trying to have time to simply relax! We really need to come again!  T & PM, Coventry, April 2013

We've had another brilliant 3 weeks here - we really pushed ourselves this year, so as well as canoeing through the Tarn Gorges again we went to Pont du Gard. Otherwise just lying around, eating and drinking, looking at wildlife and stargazing. What more can you ask for? A perfect holiday, thank you.  JS, Dorset, Sept 2012

Thanks again for sharing your beautiful holiday home with us. Over the years we have had many holiday lets in Southern France and Northern Italy. We feel sure that Le Vieux Mas is one of the best.  JB, Durham, June 2012

We had  a wonderful time at Le Vieux Mas. The house had absolutely everything we needed and we felt very at home there. We loved the Cevennes but equally found relaxing on the terrace a very enjoyable part of the holiday. We had a chance to see some wonderful scenery and wildlife and we hope to return perhaps at a different time of the year to experience the area in more depth, doing more walking in cooler weather for example. Thank you again for an excellent holiday.   S & AA, E Yorks, June 2012

We had a lovely holiday and thank you once again for the opportunity to rent your property. It is a stunning location and the wildlife is amazing! Certainly an area to return to.  RO, Essex, Aug 2011

We had a brilliant time in France thank you. Your house is fantastic, one of the best ones we have ever stayed in. The weather was just perfect especially for all those butterflies and flowers.  BS, Nottinghamshire, June 2011

The house is exceptional, very special.  MP, Northumberland, June 2011

We are just back from a wonderful week in Le Vieux Mas. The house and surroundings were really beautiful, beyond our expectations. Thank you for making everything so welcoming and for providing such excellent information about the area and walks.  Having a table football game on the landing was also a boon, despite the failings of my back three.  JM, London May 2011     

One of our best holidays yet. VG, Co Durham, April 2011

Our second wonderful fortnight in September. The house is extremely comfortable and the Cévennes is a magical and, so far, relatively unknown part of France. Le Vieux Mas is great for walking and driving, amid overwhelming countryside with breathtaking views. It also is wonderful for staying put and doing very little, soaking in the surrounding peace and beauty.  TL, Bedfordshire, Sept 2010

The peace and quiet really make you forget about time. We recommend Le Vieux Mas to everyone wanting to visit the  Cévennes.  DC, Belgium, July 2010

Many thanks for letting us stay in your lovely house. Our abiding memory is of sitting on the top terrace, glass of wine and binoculars to hand, listening to the birdsong.  AB, Hampshire, June 2010 

We had great walks, and fabulous visits to the Gorges du Tarn, Pont du Gard and the Camargue. A lovely holiday.  FB, Lincolnshire, June 2010

A true home from home, and very well organized with a great book collection, maps and notes about everything, broadband connection...etc.    L&J W, May 2010

We had a wonderful holiday: we think it is quite the best place we have stayed in over the many years we have visited France. We found the detailed guides really helpful, and certainly took us to places we would otherwise have missed. We loved the wildlife, and the whole family enjoyed the stay and we had many wonderful meals together on the terrace.  AL, August 2009

The absolute highlight of our holiday was our week at your place. We had super weather, it was hard for me to get the family away from the house it was only the draw of a swim and food that got them in the car! The place is fabulous and the information provided is excellent.  AN, Hampshire, July 2009

We had a really wonderful time at Le Vieux Mas - it is a great house in a fabulous location - I don't think we could fault it at all.  We hope to return sometime in the future and bring some friends with us - we think they would love it!  We thought the new kitchen was lovely - a fantastic place to cook and eat in.  KB, Belfast, July 2009
