Mas d’Oléandre

Montaren & St Médiers, Gard

Come for warm friendly Dutch hosts, top-notch apartments, and a lavender-fringed pool with a great view. Oh, and rose champagne on arrival


3 places


Each sleep 2


The tiny streets of St Médiers wind up the hill, and at the top is Mas d’Oléandre, a tree-shrouded oasis with glorious views. Dutch Esther and Leo fell in love with the Languedoc years ago – the vineyards and olive groves, the gorges and mountains – and renovated this fine old farmhouse. Two little dogs will greet you before they do, and usher you into a leafy inner courtyard with a long table for ‘table d’hotes’ (once or twice a week and fabulous). Three immaculate apartments also await. Light floods in to beamy ‘Paulownia’ from arched French windows, and its terrace is shaded by beautiful hackberry trees. Two-storey Grenadier (once the stables) has a sophisticated rusticity, and a view of Mont Ventoux from the kitchen. Mimosa, the largest, comes with its bedroom downstairs, its living space up, two entrances and a generous kitchen. There are dark velour sofas, Dutch flower canvases filling high spaces, and shower rooms with polished concrete floors. Across the lane: lovely stepped gardens and a dreamy pool. Visit medieval Uzès, the Roman Pont du Gard, and Julien in tiny Montaren where the food is quite outstanding.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Léonard Robberts & Esther Küchler

  • Uzès has much to offer: the National Stud Farm, Haribo museum, Provençal market every Wednesday and Saturday, as well as many sporting and cultural activities - January is truffle month and in June there's a dance and fairy-tale festival.
  • The town was built by the Romans between 40-60 AD to provide the city of Nîmes with water. In fact the bridge is a minor part of the Roman water transport system (50km long) carrying water from the source near Uzès to Nîmes.
  • Distance from our Mas to Nîmes is approx.30 kms. Nîmes takes pride in numerous Roman monuments and its two ‘Ferias’ at Whitsun, and of course its wine-harvest. In summer on Thursdays the ‘Jeudis de Nîmes’ (night markets) take place.
  • In the centre of Camargue, between beach and vineyards, is the the small city of Saint Louis, with its fortifications. From the city walls a splendid view of the city, the salt production and the wine fields.
  • Only 40 minutes away from our Mas, this nice little town in the Gardon Valley on the edge of the Cevennes is worth visiting; visit the night markets, monuments, Bambouseraie (Bamboo garden) and make pottery.
  • Considered the medieval capital of Christianity, the great past still shows in Avignon's monuments; the palace of the popes, Saint Bézénet bridge or Pont d’Avignon, made famous by the song "Sur le Pont d'Avignon".
