Wonderful property with wonderful owners in a wonderful location.! You may even see the local sangliers at night.
Great en Gard
Very nice, well equipped and spacious house. Pleasant views over the adjoining farmland (olives and vines). It was a little too early in the year to use the pool but it looked nice and was very secluded.
Uzes (good markets Wed and Sat) is 40 mins or so by back road; Nimes halles (daily) was about an hour and both are well worth visiting for local produce but there is a pretty comprehensive Super U in Marguerittes.
The owners, Suzanne and Michel, were very pleasant and welcoming, but not at all intrusive. If we were coming back to this part of France again we would definitely consider Le Mazet Rouge.
Perfect holiday home
This villa is fantastic! We stayed mid September as a young couple with our dog. The house looks exactly as it does in the pictures, the entire garden is completely fenced which is great. The house is very well equipped and I really couldn't fault anything. We've stayed at many villas but this is the first we will return to, we already requested a booking for next year.
The loacation is very central to visit other towns, it's also close enough to a main road for convenience but you don't hear traffic and the view is outstanding.
The hosts are very kind, they brought us some fresh figs and even fig jam! Any small issue we had they saw to it immediately but certainly leave you in peace to enjoy your stay.
I really recommend this place to anyone!
Thanks for a great stay

Beautiful quite location
This is a lovely holiday destination,quiet,peacefull with shops not to far away for essentials.
Ideal base for visting Avigon, Nimes, Pont du Gard and local markets at Uzes.
The property is spacious clean with everything you need for a perfect holiday.
Large fenced garden ideal, as we take our dog. with a lovely private pool.
Suzanne and Michel are very freindly and helpfull.
We have stayed here twice now and have booked for next year. We would recommend this villa without hesitation for its quite and peacefull location over looking the countryside.
We travelled with two young children from Australia and the cottage was very comfortable. The cottage was all that it was advertised as. It was well maintained and clean and had all the necessary facilities. The kitchen is well equipped and there was also laundry facilities which are appreciated when travelling with children. Providing the children are okay with stairs as ours are (the bedrooms are upstairs) it is ideal for a family of four.
It is located in a peaceful rural area with fantastic views across the local fields. The cottage is convenient to Nimes, Pont du Gard and a great many other locations in the region. The owners are very friendly, helpful and had many great suggestions for activities and local markets. I would recommend this property to couples or a family of four.
Excellent séjour en famille
Nous avons passé une excellente semaine au Mazet Rouge.
La maison est moderne, bien équipée et entretenue.
La vue sur les vignes est magnifique.
L'emplacement est idéal et permet de faire de nombreuses visites à moins d'une heure de route (Nîmes, Avignon, Uzès, Châteuneuf du pape...).
Suzanne et Michel nous ont réservé un accueil très chaleureux.
Un grand merci à eux, ils ont été aux petits soins avec nous !

Exactly under the sun! This is not a tell story but the exactly true: in France. This is the place where the sun shines more!
We took so much pleasure to lay out our house. The noble materials: wood, stone, granite, sisal, and 'real' green plants have a great importance.
The large living room with inclined ceiling, equipped with a ceiling fan, offers a large bright volume and a convivial living area. The sofa, very comfortable, can become a perfect 160x200 cm sleeping, with latex mattress on slatted frame. The generous granite coffee table can cater maps and fold up documents, but also a traditional apero!
The evening will be a music one? TV? Hard working? The choice is yours. Enjoy the CD-Player, Hi-Fi, LED TV (102cm flat screen) with satellite, DVD player, bookcase, etc. You will find all you need to be happy, like Books, leaflets, hiking guides, and maps. You will know everything about the region and will allow you to schedule your days.
From June to September, our swimming pool (6x4x1.40 m, flat-bottom, with all wide Roman steps) will allow you to relax and refresh you. We care about the maintenance. We equip it, according to the risks, with a security fence and alarm. This does not exclude, of course, the parents' vigilance!
On the beach, well accommodated in your beach chairs , you will laze about under the sun! However, you could prefer doze in a deck chair, lulled by the sound of cicadas: the nap, here, is all an art!
After an entire day of visits, walks swim, or simply a resting day, it is so nice to be with the family or with friend around a BBQ, with thyme and wild rosemary picked close by: you will savour the delicious local and sea products. You will enjoy fruits and vegetables saturated with sun, goat cheese, garlic, onions, etc. Of course, you will be able to taste the olives, with Midi wines, as the famous rosés of Tavel or Bourdic, produced in Gard, few kilometres away.
We privilege the green and wooden setting of our house. The plot offers several areas:
- An olive grown, that allows us to produce our own olive oil
- A small holm oak forest, still natural, where grow shrubs of our scrubland
- An ornamental garden, more elaborated, where are chosen Mediterranean plants
- A small exotic garden along the dry stone wall ('à la cale' as we say in French), wall as reference to our clocháns, our cultural heritage to discover!
- The grove and the vegetable garden are for our use, and we will have the pleasure to let you taste our fruits and vegetables according to the seasons.
The construction is just by our former sculpture workshop: we are now pensioner and so it's now not in activity. But if you are interested in the stone labour, we can restart it and talk to you about this regional traditional activity that has been done fror centuries. The freestone, the natural stone removed from the agricultural plots called dry stones, were always used for construction and give colours to our villages and to the centres of our towns.
Our region is deeply marked by our Roman past: prestigious monuments are the proof, but also more discreet remains.
Moreover, in all modesty, at the same place where our rental house is located , there was a Welsh Roman home, after which the place was named: tile and piece of pottery smithereens prove it: the word 'cazaux' comes from the old Provencal 'cazal', that comes from Latin 'casa' which the meaning is: rural house or estate.
Here, you can satisfy your desire for culture, history, archaeology, botany, graphic arts or for photo... you have also the option of lazing: Viva idleness! You are on vacation! Let yourselves be carried away by the gentle pleasures of life!
But you can also surpass yourself: hiking, mountain bike or bicycle, fish, paddle in your kayak, climb, etc.
You want to have fun activities? You will find several leisure parks, like the water park of La Bouscarasse will satisfy kids and adults.
And to have fun: festivals, shows, concerts, traditional festivities, activities are scheduled.
