About the property

Farmhouse, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

The Mas du Marechal is situated right in the centre of the village and has been fully and sympathetically restored, the emphasis having been on keeping the original features of the house intact while also providing you with every comfort and luxury possible. The house has been beautifully decorated, is fully equipped and has 5 double bedrooms with crisp percale bedding, each bedroom having it’s own fresh new bathroom. The house sleeps 10 people comfortably. Small children can additionally be accommodated, totaling a maximum of 14.

The wonderful open plan kitchen is fully equipped with everything you may need. It is equipped to please a gourmet cook. The central island is a cook’s dream and the extra seating around the island and in the kitchen area allows for group cooking sessions.

A large airy living area opens onto the garden and shaded terrace, overlooking the sparkling pool. This house is ideal for large family groups or a group of friends.

Mas du Marechal: The Mas du Marechal is situated in the village of Vers Pont du Gard which is in the heart of the Cotes du Rhone wine region. It is also a stone’s throw away from the legionary Pont du Gard, the almost 2000 year old Roman Aqueduct. This is a World Heritage site and is the 3rd most visited site in France after Paris and Mont St. Michel in Brittany.

Vers Pont du Gard: The village of Vers Pont du Gard is a lively working village with mini supermarket which is very well stocked, bakery, pizzeria, a bar that serves simple regional food daily, hairdresser, pharmacy, doctors, dentists, tabac/presse, physiotherapists, aestheticienne, post office, sports club and a pre-primary and primary school. There is also a Relais and Chateaux restaurant as well as a restaurant and caterer in the old station house. A fresh produce farmers market takes place on the square three times a week. A fresh fish van arrives once a week. You can also buy wine directly from the kitchen door of the local vineyard or at the wine co-operative. Food and wine are the main attractions of the area and sublime food markets abound.

Activities: Bicycles can be rented nearby and the surrounding vineyards provide enjoyable and easy rides through flat terrain. Kayaking is also a possible pastime and the Gardon river meanders right underneath the Pont du Gard aqueduct. Swimming in the river is very popular too.

Wonderful hiking and biking routes are all around. Ancient villages dot the gentle rolling hills and are perfect for exploring.

About Vivienne Ghyoot

We live in South Africa, but have always loved France and wanted a piece of it. We came to the area by chance, loved it and knew we wanted to be in the area. After looking at more than 200 houses, throughout France, we knew this house had potential. The house was restored and furnished, and is a home from home for the family and for our guests.

Vivienne Ghyoot purchased this farmhouse in 2008

Why Vivienne Ghyoot chose Vers-Pont-du-Gard

This property is on the border of Provence, a wine growing valley, situated near Uzes which is the last Duchy of France. We fell in love with Uzes and wanted something nearby. The house is only a stone's throw away from the Pont du Gard which is a World Heritage Site. We love the area as there is so much to see and do.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The very well appointed house has a gourmet kitchen and lives easily and can accommodate large family groups and friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have stayed with friends and family in over 12 villas over the years and this one is a beauty! One of my top 3 and I would love to return and would recommend it highly to all my travelling friends. It is beautiful and has that WOW factor. This is a villa that is more that the description and pictures depict. The decor and design is stunning. The kitchen has everything... we stayed in for dinner all 6 nights and found every utensil and cooking ware that we needed. We did day trips on most days and ate lunch out but we found ourselfes running back to the villa to enjoy the pool and the outside ameneties. I travelled with my husband and 5 twenty-somethings who enjoyed the relaxation of the villa as they destressed from the hectic jobs. What I loved was that all 5 bedrooms were beautiful, comfortable and comparable, so if 5 couples were travelling together there would be a comparable bedroom and bathroom for each couple. The owner Vivienne was so helpful and so attentive in answering email questions which was much appreciated.

Amazing week in a gorgeous house.

  • 5 of 5

Four friends reunited in this beautiful home in early May for a week of relaxation as well as exploration. The house itself was amazing and had everything you could possibly need. Each of the five bedrooms were large and had access to its own modern bathroom. It would definitely also be a great house for couples traveling together or perhaps two families. The kitchen was perfect for cooking and lacked for nothing. And being able to have our evening meals on the patio beside the pool was a definite treat. The village of Vers itself was lovely and we definitely enjoyed getting our coffee and pain au chocolat in the mornings. The location of Vers Pont du Gard was very convenient and made it easy for our day trips to Uzes (definitely one of our favorite spots, especially for market day), Avignon, Aix en Provence, Arles, Nimes, Chaeauneuf de Pape and Gigondas. Vivienne, the owner, was extremely helpful in our trip preparations and had a bottle of rose chilled for us on our arrival. She also has a very helpful book on the coffee table in which she has compiled lots of interesting information on "how the French" do things as well as restaurant recommendations, a schedule of market days along with tips on how to get around while driving. Madeleine, who managed the house and met us with the key was very helpful and gave us the tour of the house and showed us how things worked. We would definitely recommend checking this house out for a vacation spot.

A beautifully restored property in a charming village

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family group was very comfortable at Mas du Marechal. We were a group of nine, three generations, and there was plenty of room for all. The luxury of nicely appointed bathrooms in each bedroom cannot be overstated! The kitchen was roomy and well stocked. The property has been beautifully restored, with great attention to detail and comfort. Our stay began with a delicious catered meal, poolside, and our biggest challenge was choosing how to spend our time, when so much beckoned. A half day cooking class at Le Pistou in Uzès was a wonderful and delicious activity!

Mas du Maréchal ! Endroit rêvé !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué ce magnifique Mas pour 2 semaines avec nos enfants et petits-enfants. Nous avons été enchantés de la maison. Rien ne manquait. Cuisine super équipée pour cuisiner. Lits confortables. Terrasse agréable. Nous y avons pris tous nos repas. Mets de la région et vins rosés... Le mas est bien situé. Boulangerie à 2 minutes. La Grange (petit bistro) pour l'apéro. Nous rêvons d'y retourner !

Lovely home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Nine close friends spent a week in this lovely home. The covered patio was perfect for our catered dinner and wine tasting. The pool provided a great way to cool off after sight seeing. The living room and dining area accommodate a large group comfortably. Beds are comfortable. The village of Vers Pont du Gard was special. We especially loved the bakery and La Grange restaurant and the ability to walk to each of them. Uzes is a ten minute drive away with a great market, shops, and restaurants. We would recommend the Le Pistou cooking classes in Uzes. Great fun and food.

This home was a great location for a home base as we explored the area. Thank you Vivienne for such a beautiful restoration!

Mas du Marechal is stunning. The beds are extremely comfortable and we all slept so well. The garden and pool are really lovely and we spent a lot of our time lounging around during the day and sitting around the table in the evening eating, drinking and chatting. The kitchen had everything we needed and all of the rooms were so beautifully decorated with no compromise on comfort. The village is beautiful - we loved the market, the boulangerie and especially La Grange which we visited on several occasions. We had a wonderful lunch at Le Tracteur too. It is a shame that the village supermarket had closed down but we were able to get everything we needed in nearby supermarkets.

We will look back on our week at Le Mas du Marechal with many fond memories

Beautifully decorated, spacious house

  • 5 of 5

This house welcomes you with an atmosphere of hospitality. Our group filled it to capacity, yet we never felt crowded. The common areas provide indoor and outdoor pretty spaces to be -- together for a festive meal or apart for quiet conversation or moments of solitude. Good floor plan. There are steep stairwells and a number of changes in level of flooring inside and out, so I can't recommend this house to anyone with mobility or vision limitations. We encountered some problems with plumbing hardware and a blocked gas line when we first arrived, so we were extremely glad the non-local owner employs expert local help. Dominique and Christophe responded quickly and courteously, assuring that minor problems did not become major difficulties. The cook-top is balky. No complaints about anything else in that kitchen where every need has been anticipated and provided for well. Even ample shopping bags and totes for the nearby recycling bins are at hand. Wonderful pool. Pretty garden. I recommend this house for two families travelling together or for groups of friends.

The little village is blessed to have a great bakery/pastry within an easy stroll. Steps in the other direction lead to a pleasant cafe/bar. I can't imagine a more welcoming spot. We met (and bought from) local artisans, borrowed a guitar, petted the local dogs, drank many a beer and mint lemonade and afternoon espresso. What Vers does not have is a bank or ATM machine, so be sure to do banking transactions in larger towns. We loved the people, the village, and the house.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review on the house and village. It is a village with a pleasant vibe, and I would like to think that the house has the same! I am sorry for the hiccup with the gas and plumbing, but glad that it could get rectified quickly! I am glad you all had a nice trip despite some train delays. We would love to welcome your group from Alabama any time in the future!
