  • Vinni and Christian were very friendly and pleasant host. We enjoyed the nice house and the beautiful landscape around Masjo.
    We can also recommend the house to make holidays in winter.... its warm enough :-)!
    We come back at any time.

  • What a beautiful house this is! Set amongst vineyard as far as you can see and within easy driving distance to so many beautiful towns and amazing landmarks.

    Unfortunately we never met Vinni and Christian but we were always in contact, sending us recommendation, helping us with any problems including arranging their house keeper at short notice.

    The house has such charm, you will soon feel as if it is your own. Wonderful kitchen with everything you could possibly need to prepare food for your family. Flowers are everywhere, great views from the top living room and even a few toys for the kids.

    The fire was left ready and waiting, as was a bottle of local wine and plenty of maps and guide books.

    Very much recommended :)

    Thank you so much for your lovely comments and for taking the time to write this review!

  • We were warmly welcomed by Vinni And Christian who showed us around and told us where everything was and then left us to enjoy a wonderful week spent in their beautiful house.
    The house is so comfortable and spacious and we all enjoyed the pool which was kept spotlessly clean. We visited Anduze and many local villages and travelled down to the coast and had a dip in the sea.
    We thoroughly recommend this holiday home and would love to return sometime.

    Many thanks for a perfect break in idyllic surroundings.

    Response from Vinni & Christian:

    Thank you so much for the lovely comments! We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us!

  • Vinni and Christian's place in the Cevenne was wonderful - a well presented house with courtyard area and pool was a perfect base for trips to the surrounding area. Walks straight from the house along tracks cutting through vineyards provided enough to entertain whilst at the house, with so much more in the surrounding area. Vinni and Christian themselves were excellent hosts from their house 0.5km up the track and were able to fill us in with information about the area, and even help us print our boarding passes, when we realised we had forgotten. Would highly recommend a stay.

  • After staying one week we regretted that we have not booked for two. The house is just as charming as showed on the photos. Right from the first moment we stepped in we felt homely and cosy. It was one of those places we just liked right away.

    It’s an ideal place for a “big” family like us, 7 persons, three generations. What I really loved was the fact that everyone could find his own corner in this house for relaxing, reading, napping, swimming, watching TV or just doing nothing… totally peaceful.

    We were not so lucky with the weather. It was not as warm as a normal end of June and cold wind blew almost everyday. However, we still found some opportunities for enjoying our exclusive swimming pool, which Christian maintained every 2-3 days in the early morning.

    The big lovely kitchen well equipped with all we needed for preparing delicious meals and share nice talks all together. I appreciated much that all the linens and towels were provided nicely.

    Vinni and Christian are very caring hosts. They welcomed us warmly like friends.

    It’s a truly enjoyable experience and we are 100% satisfy for our stay and will definitely come back next year.

    Thank you Samantha for the lovely review. It was great having you here. Summer came late this year, normally you can take advantage of the pool from mid-May. We are looking forward to seeing you and your family next year.. Best regards Vinni & Christian.
