Down to the river The Vis river, wild and pristine
Our Mas overlooks the river from a few meters; this particular river holds a special “sauvage” label because of the special quality of its water and wildlife. It is a unique ecosystem that we are proud to make available for you for swimming and fishing. Quite easily you should be able to observe an endemic strand of Fario trout and a few crayfishes. Please take care of this precious environment and preserve it.
Touristic highligthts Nature and heritage
Within 35 km from our Mas, visitors will be able to enjoy several outstanding sites and innumerable interesting spots, not so touristic, which will kindle your feelings for beauty and wilderness. We will gladly advise you depending on your particular interests and the season.
Our rooms Bright and roomy, waiting for you
Our rooms are to your taste, cosy and warm. They open on a terrace overlooking the river on one side and on a wide corridor on the other side. Each room has its own bathroom and toilet. The furniture is old and we ask you to take care of it. For your comfort, we put new bedding ☺☺. You will appreciate the wood, the stone and the wrought iron used for the construction.
Check in after 3pm, check out before 11am. We are sorry we cannot accommodate you pet friends.
If you have never come to the Cévennes National Park you will be enthralled like everyboby by its stark wilderness mixing the rocky landscapes of the Causses, the green oaks forests on limestone slopes or chestnuts groves on shale rocks, green canyons crossed by cool and pristine rivers : the Vis river which bath our walls is one of these wild rivers. Human settlements are also captivating during the summer with many food markets, local festivals organized in the villages and small towns, along with a variety of cultural and sport activities. Several facilities around our Mas Caladelle propose trekking, potholing, kayaking, riding, karting… If you are the active type you will be hard pressed to explore all the possibilities. If you are the contemplative type you will enjoy the million places to admire an old building, a traditional house, a heritage spot or a wild and special landscape.
We offer all this and everything you can discover by yourself.
Our Mas is on the South border of the Cévennes National Park, set on the Vis river bank, a pristine river with clear and abundant water all year round. The Vis river is our exceptional feature, a never ending delight. Swimming is recommended although under your own responsibility: the water temperature in summer stays between 19 to 21 Celcius; nice wading area for childre where the water is shallow, the river allows great swimming areas where it is deeper. Kayaking is forbidden on the river. The riverbanks are private and access is limited to neighbours and friends.
We are proud to be able to share this natural resource with our guests.
We are located at 1.5 km from the center of the village and 6 km from the nearest town where you can find all the commodities. The Mas over over 200 hundreds years old and has been fully refurbished to accommodate our guests: it is a family house and we welcome you in happiness and mutual respect. Part of the house and the land is reserved for the use of the guests.
We have some farmyard animals in free range and we cannot welcome your own pet animals.
Along with the accommodation our guests can access a large part of the site and the riverbank. Some parts of the land remain private for the comfort of our farmyard animals. You are welcome to inquire for any special request that we will try to satisfy within our constraints. There is no television set available but we do have a few bookshelves with French, English and Spanish literature.
If you need baby equipement please ask.
In spite of our intentions we could not adapt our old house for all disabled people: we will strive to accommodate any particular demand.
Because our house is isolated in a quiet environment, we do not have high speed internet access through local WIFI. GSM 3G connections are good though and digital tablets and smartphones connect pretty well. Several cafés and restaurants in town offer free WIFI access.
We were delighted and surprised this summer by the Mas de Caladelle, large building recently renovated with great care. Right down the Mas flows the wonderful Vis River where we could swim in a wild, idillyc setting.
We will remember the warm welcome from Pascal and the nice atmosphere of the place. We will come back!!
