Why the Owner Chose Monoblet, France:
We have been looking to a second home in France for years. We love rural France - the culture, the cuisine, wine, country side and outdoor activities - and for us, Monoblet, the Gard and the Cevennes are the best of all. Mas de l'Aire was the most beautiful house and setting we had seen. No other home had a home rendered us speechless. I
