“Maison du Gardon was the perfect choice for friends and family to gather for a special French experience. The house is warm, welcoming and beautifully furnished and 6 couples were able to enjoy their own space and bathroom. Chef’s kitchen which overlooked the pool area was quintessentially Provence. The village the perfect size to immerse oneself into village life – boulangerie, grocers, markets and two restaurants/cafes. The owner even arranged for some Pétanque sets to be delivered so we could play down at the village square. Thank you for such a memorable experience.”

“We absolutely loved our stay at La Maison du Gardon. The house had everything we needed for an extended stay and everyone enjoyed the space to stretch out and relax. We cooked in the kitchen and ate outside most evenings, having had long lunches out and about after a morning of sightseeing. The house book was very helpful in giving us ideas of what to do in the area – and we managed a lot! Nimes, Avignon, St Remy, kayaking under the Pont Du Gard, St Quentin, Castillon du Gard … not to mention enjoying beautiful Vers with its markets, bars and cafes. The cleaners did a wonderful job when they came halfway through and the house managers, Amanda and Nick, were warm and welcoming. The weather was very hot – 36-38 degrees most days – and although the house was generally comfortable, I would suggest another (stronger) standing fan for the living area and also for the upstairs bedrooms above the kitchen. Some evenings were extremely warm and we found it difficult to sleep in the king bedroom above the kitchen (forgive me, I’ve forgotten the name). The bedrooms on the other side of the house had air conditioning, of course, so my parents slept there which they found comfortable. We also struggled with the washing machine, despite the instructions to push hard on the door! Perhaps something to consider replacing in due course as it has clearly been an issue for others (hence the typed notice on how to problem solve if the machine doesn’t start!). Not a big problem, of course, but given the number of people in the house, and the hot weather, we did use the washing machine every day. One final piece of feedback which I’m sure others have mentioned. All of us hit our head at least once on the stone above the small door from the kitchen to the garden – including my 80 year old father who actually cut his head quite badly. While I appreciate there isn’t anything you can do to make the doorframe bigger, perhaps something to soften the blow or highlight that people need to stoop would be beneficial? There is a piece of string hanging down which is a reminder to duck, but maybe there is another option to help others in the future? Otherwise, we had a fantastic holiday. Everything was as expected and we would certainly return again in the future – and recommend the house to friends and family.”

“We could not have enjoyed our stay more. The home is beautifully decorated, comfortable, everyone had a private ensuite and a luxurious bedroom. Everything was well thought through in the kitchen, dining room and entertainment space. Thank you for an exceptional week in your very special home.”

“The property was a splendid place for a family reunion. It was equipped with everything that we needed for our oldest son to don his chef’s cap and serve delicious meals under the reed canopy by the pool. The pool was great in the high (100 degree) heat. Vers-Pont-du-Gard is located within about 30 minutes of Avignon and Nimes and about 50 to Arles. would not hesitate to stay here again and can recommend it highly to anyone interested.”

“My wife and I rented the house to take our son and daughter and their families (four grandchildren) to Provence. The house was perfect with the grandparents’ bedroom and bathroom on the main floor behind the kitchen while the upstairs in divided into two separate apartments each with a bedroom for the parents , a bedroom with twin beds for the grandchildren and two bathrooms. The bonus was the swimming pool which entertained all ages. There is an excellent boulangerie just down the road and a shop next door which has most items you may need. The house book is excellent, listing restaurants and shops in nearby towns, and attractions within about an hours drive. We highly recommend this house, especially for a family vacation or reunion.”

“We had a great stay at Mas Marechal, the property is big and every room has their own bathroom. We all felt very independent while we all met for breakfast and diner around the massive table outside. The swimming pool is relatively small for lengths but good for the kids to play and adults to refresh. The temperature was perfect!”

“The house is a jewel in terms of architecture and interior design. It has a great sitting area inside and a large dinner table outside by the swimming pool. The bedrooms are perfectly comfortable. The kitchen has full equipment and is spacious enough to enjoy some quality time while cooking. Overall, the house was a perfect location for a reunion among friends. We enjoyed the village of Vers itself with its nice wine bard La Grange. It is a short drive to some of the most beautiful parts of Provence and Lanquedoc. The area outside was nice for walks and bicycle rides. The only point to keep in mind is that the house is in the centre of the village and activity does start early the morning, also doing the holiday period. Overall, we were greatly impressed with the house and enjoyed tremendously our stay there.”

“The house is beautifully restored, with a lot of cachet and taste, quiet, very well equipped and close to amenities. We had a great time in this property.”

“The property was absolutely perfect for our group of five couples. It exceeded all of our expectations. The layout of the home is perfect for a large group. Everyone had the space they needed to be together or find a corner for alone time. The Mas is decorated lovingly and is extremely comfortable. We were fortunate to have a chef for 3 nights of our stay. The chef had Everything he needed for preparing meals in this thoughtfully stocked kitchen. Plating meals for ten with multiple courses was not a problem either, due to the wonderful dishware that is provided. We enjoyed all these meals on the terrace which easily accommodated all ten of us at the table. It could not of been more elegant, eating beautiful food outside with candlelight. We all had a lovely Saturday morning exploring the market and Uzes. Day trips from the Mas were plentiful, the problem was choosing which to go to with only a week. Pont du Gard was amazing, we all enjoyed that trip. Vers Pont du Gard is a charming village. We visited the bakery many times and La Grange, a perfect bistro to walk to for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and a snack. All ten of use would come back to Mas du Marechal in an instant.”
