“Luxury rural retreat in the South of France”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

Le Mas des Oules has only become available for stays in more recent times having opened a mere 4 months prior to our arrival in mid-September for a one week stay. Hosts Emma and Michael have done amazing things with the old farm complex. Once the production centre for the châteaux of Saint-Victor des Oules which still overlooks the valley from the nearby hill, Le Mas des Oules shares the same rural outlook, a mere 7 km from the beautiful medieval market town of Uzes, and 24 km to the west of Avignon.

The old farm buildings have been beautifully restored to modern standards without losing any of the building’s old world charm. We stayed in ‘Genet’ a spacious two bedroom self-contained apartment on two levels which was straight from the pages of a “Country Style” magazine. A well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge area, and luxurious bedding ensured our stay was très fantastique.

The picturesque grounds are extensive and include a wonderful pool area with water supplied from the same aquifer that the Romans used to pipe to Nimes via the famous aqueduct over the Pont du Gard. Even though we were there at the change of season, we still managed a few swims and there is no doubt this would be a great spot to while away the warmer summer days the area is known for.

Emma and Michael are lovely people and splendid hosts and, as they live in their own quarters on the property, are available should assistance be required. English is not a problem. Robert, the local baker, delivers fresh bread and croissants each day – be sure to order.

Uzes itself was probably the highlight of our 5 week European holiday. A lively medieval market town, we found the people to be friendly, and there was no end of things to see or do. The food market on Wednesday and the Saturday morning market with arts and crafts as well as local produce, are an absolute must. The location is also a great location from which to head off on day trips to the surrounding areas (if you’re into seafood I suggest the 90 minute drive to the fishing port of Marseillan and Bouzigues, the oyster capital of France, is a must, and a picnic at The Pont du Gard World Heritage Site is another great way to spend a day.)

A week was hardly long enough for us at Le Mas des Oules, a truly wonderful place to stay whilst exploring the fabulous south of France.

Room Tip: The south facing rooms have valley views

Wow! What a beautiful place. Le Mas is quiet, relaxing and set in a very beautiful part of rural France. The rooms are gorgeous (think White Company interiors) very clean and well equipped for a self catering break.
Emma and Matthew could not have been more helpful whether helping with directions, recommendations on places to eat/visit as well as providing equipment to help us whilst holidaying with two small children (3 years and 7 months).
We will definitely be back next time we travel to the region

Le Mas des Oules was the perfect place to relax and get away from everything and yet feel like you were in a home. Emma and Mike have done such a fantastic job at refurbishing this beautifully set old house and rooms. The work has been done to a high standard, the rooms hvae everything you need and are decorated so tastefully. And to wake up looking at the stunning garden with such a relaxed atmosphere is wonderful. We will go back again and again. I suspect it is even lovely in Winter. And, it is just a short drive from the gorgeous town of Uzes.

Room Tip: I am sure they are all lovely and if you explain what you are looking for Emma would put you somewhe...

We are very picky travellers, and usually spend ages trying to find the perfect place, right spot, stylish interiors, baby friendly, and we thought Le Mas des Oules had it all.
Beautiful spot with a gorgeous view and the most perfect sunsets. The courtyard it's so pretty and the houses which have just been completely renovated have the perfect mix of style and simplicity with very well equipped kitchens (a rarity). We had a look at most of the houses and they are all lovely.
We highly recommend Le Mas Des Oules and can't wait to be back!

Le Mas des Oules is a beautiful old house set in a lovely rural location near to the old town of Ouzes. It has been taken over by a young English family who have lovingly renovated it to a really high standard. Opening in August 2013, the rooms are freshly decorated and tastefully furnished in a clean, minimalistic, but well considered way. The pictures on the website truly reflect the accommodation as it is. The owners are welcoming and helpful, they are available when you need them but also discreet. We received a welcome pack full of information on what to do in the area, of which there is a never ending list. Plenty of history, the historic town of Ouzes is beautiful with lots of good restaurants, shops and a fantastic local market every week. There is Le Pont du Gard, little hilltop villages, local walks, horse riding, the Haribo Museum, wine tasting, large supermarkets, Avignon ... everything for all tastes. Alternatively you can lie by the large infinity pool or make use of the ping pong table or play a game of boules in the garden. There were other famillies staying there when we did and the children all played in the pool or the garden but it never felt overcrowded. The grounds are large and beautifully landscaped, the garden has grapes, figs and olive trees and the courtyard around the fountain has lavender and other flowers growing. Although there is not a bakery in walking distance, a local baker, Robert, calls in the morning in his van and beeps his horn to let you know that the pain au chocolat and baguettes have arrived. We did a walk up through the woods from the house to a look out point where you can see for miles and picked blackberries on the way back. We would certainly go back to stay at Le Mas des Oules, there is so much to see and do, the weather was wonderful and we have not found such good quality accommodation in France on holiday websites. The kitchen was well equipped and brand new and there is also a communal washing machine. The venue is perfect if you want to go as a family on your own, with your friends or family or you can even book the whole place out if you want to get married there.

Room Tip: Genet has a lovely outside sitting area next to the garden if you want to watch your kids playing.
