My wife and I loved to travel with our three children around the world during the holiday period. However, when our first grandchild was announced we thought that organizing such long trips would become more difficult and we looked for a sunny place (we are Belgian) where we could host the entire family during the summer holidays. By luck we found the 'mas'/house next door which met our criteria. Indeed, it is located in a village, it is big enough and has a nice swimming pool, it is close to an airport or a railway station ( easy commute to Brussels where I was working), it is located in a cultural active and attractive region, it is not too far away from quality medical support.
Today, for more than 12 years, we are spending about 5 months a year in Montaren and we still enjoy it tremendeously!
The Owner purchased this house in 2008
We bought the house we let - 16 Route d'Uzes - because, by doing so, we 'reassembled' the 'mas'/house, as it was at the origin.
The house is a very comfortable place, in a sunny region where there is always something to see, to do and...to taste.
This place is so beautiful! The home has been decorated with the utmost taste and it feels like a home! All amenities are available and we could tell that the owners loved their place: it is charming, welcoming, clean and very well-maintained. The pool was great, perfect for my wife and I who wanted to cool down but did not need the olympic size pool, the kitchen was a high end modern kitchen with everything and more to cook if we wanted. The location is of course, perfect! We were near the sunflower and lavender fields, in the midst of wine country as well as the magical cities we came to visit. In all we loved it and would highly recommend such a great HOME! Thank you again for letting us enjoy!
