STUNNING RURAL RETREAT- VILLAGE MAS- FULLY MODERNISED WITH WITH ECO POOL
Full property description
5 Bedroom/ 4 Bathroom Beautiful Restored Mas With Eco Pool
Mas la Clastre is made up of three old buildings. In the heart of the village, yet astonishingly quiet and private, behind high walls. Located in the beutiful village of Fons- Sur- Lussan, the is seaside one hour away, 40 mins from magnificent Pont du gard, 30 mins from Uzes, 50 mins to Nimes.
The hub of the house is a well-equipped kitchen where friends and family can congregate, cook and chat.
On cool spring evenings an open fire adds a touch of luxury, although underfloor heating ensures warmth throughout the year. With generous sofas and hundreds of books, it’s the perfect place to doze and read.
Thick walls and vaulted ceilings offer a welcome respite from the intense heat of summer.
Equipped with butler's sink, induction hob, miniature Dualit oven and fridge-freezer, the summer kitchen is useful when taking meals in the garden.
Mas La Clastre sleeps up to 10 adults in five double bedrooms and can easily accommodate additional children and teenagers downstairs.
Cotton sheets are essential when it comes to keeping cool in the heat of summer.
King size, single or twin, most sleeping configurations can be accommodated.
Two windows in bedrooms ensure a through breeze even in high summer.
Bathrooms are fitted with central taps allow for companionable baths. Watch the sunset with Mountain views while enjoying a leisurely soak.
The house’s four bathrooms include two wet rooms.
The terrace is good for sunbathing and stargazing. Good too for eavesdropping on boules players in the square below, over an “apero” with olives, saucisson, and a glass of rosé.
Large forest trees provide deep shade at midday making the garden the perfect place for lunch, as well as in the evenings when the barbecue comes into its own.
The table extends to seat 12.
Freshwater Eco, bassin-style pool with contra-flow pump enabling continuous swimming which can be floodlit at night.
When not incorporated into the rest of the house, the ground floor (excluding the salon) can function independently, useful for teenagers or grandparents who might appreciate an extra degree of privacy. This “flat” consists of a separate front door and hall, bedroom, living room/study with double sofa bed, the summer kitchen.
There is internet (wifi) and a good selection of classic DVDs, both French and English. No television signal, although the TV takes HDMI connection for laptop connection. Cellphone reception is reasonable. The Mas has many levels, steps, and uneven floors so the self contained flat, bathroom and the family lounge on the ground floor perfect for those not happy with lots of stairs. There is no wheelchair access, and both the house and garden would be hard to negotiate for the partially sighted. The pool is deep with no shallow end, and there is no physical barrier between it and the garden, beyond the 50cm wall that surrounds it..
