The Experience

Bask by the pool as you gaze on the Cevennes. Go for walks and picnics or snooze in the shade. Enjoy dinner with mountain views, cooked by Caroline and Andrew – they’re great chefs.

There’s lots to love on this huge former farm: tranquillity, hospitality and wild garrigue. Great big pots have been planted in the courtyard, comfy loungers line the pool, and little tables are scattered about… track one down and take a book – or a bottle of delicious Pic St Loup wine. Pop into Quissac for shops, restaurants and Wednesday market, or head for bustling Nimes or Montpellier (35km). La Bambouseraie botanical gardens near Anduze are unmissable, and 20 minutes away.

Back home is the little Hayloft, its mezzanine bedroom under the rafters (no toddlers: steep stairs!). Its close neighbour is a charming cottage for six, Maison du Coutach: one bedroom up, one bedroom down, and a cute private terrace overlooking the Coutach mountain.

Accommodation

Reviews

What a gorgeous place for a holiday away from the busy world. Stay here for long days and feel spoilt. I think this is perfect for off-peak visits too as the seasonal changes are beautiful here, with autumnal colours or spring flowers. There's a deep pool to sink in and cool off from the summer sun and in the evening, dine under the oak trees - Caroline and Andrew are fine cooks.

Location

The neighbourhood

These 100 acres of woodland and garrigue lie just above lovely old Quissac; you can be in the market in five minutes, or 25 by foot. Paths lead up and away in all directions, and outdoor activities abound: hiking, biking, riding, climbing. All at their most enjoyable in spring, early summer and autumn, when the trees are a glory. The area is full of festivals - come for Quissac's wonderful one in August.

Local points of interest from Caroline & Andrew Lewis

  • Lose yourself in the numerous food markets such as Quissac, Sommieres, Uzes or Lunel filled with wonderful fresh local produce all seasonal and at its best. Alternatively pick up a bargain in either of the brocante markets in Anduze or Sommieres.
  • If you are a fan of swimming the area is filled with hidden treasures of secluded rivers and lakes. More of a fan of the salted variety, the coast is a 40 kilometres drive to beaches ranging from the upmarket Grand Travers to the wild Espiguette.
  • Endless stunning walks to challenge all abilities are abundant. Either making your starting point us up into the nearby Coutach or a short drive to climb the stunning Pic st Loup. You will always be rewarded with magical castles, views and landscapes.
  • We are situated in the finest wine area the region has to offer. Wonderful wineries such Mas D'Oncle, Chateau Cazeneuve or La Gravette will tempt you with their wonderful variety of wines and their unerring passion. Why not bring a bottle back to enjoy?
  • If you are as adventurous as our six sons you will love the local rock climbing, white water kayaking, extreme canyoning and endless summer festivals where you can party well into the early hours. Then unwind with some quiet fishing on the Vidourle.
  • The region has so much to offer but the magical charm of La Deveze means that many guests choose to spend the majority of their time relaxing in the warm sunshine surrounded by idyllic views with all the creature comforts at hand.Why not have a lazy time?

Introducing

Caroline & Andrew Lewis

Caroline and Andrew combined their property development and interior design skills, and with a little help from their six sons they breathed life back into what was a ruined mas, or farmhouse, in 2014. They both worked in the restaurant industry in London and have transferred their hospitality expertise to La Deveze, where they live with two friendly boxer dogs. They love to advise their guests on what to see and do in the area.
