About David Reece
We are a retired but energetic couple, who both speak French. We know France well, but the Gard was a discovery which we believe compares very favourably against other French holiday areas for sun, good value, and interesting activities. When we arrive at Le Mas du Coq, Diane inspects the roses and other plants in case loving care is need, while I keep the paintwork fresh. Then it's on to the serious stuff - walking, swimming, tennis, French cuisine in our great kitchen with all the garden herbs, exploring ever more places of interest, and oh! relaxing. When it's time to leave I have to be dragged away. Judging by the comments in our visitors' book, I am not the only one!
David Reece purchased this farmhouse in 2006
Why David Reece chose Massillargues-Attuech
We visited John, a friend who has been helping people renovate old houses in France for many years. Without a thought of buying, when we heard that St Roman was for sale, we went to look. We pushed through the rusty fence, up to the balcony and the views. We couldn't see inside, and the ground floor had only been occupied by the farm animals, but the next day we bought it! For the next two years we worked with John and his very professional builders to make it the lovely house it now is. The plan was always to rent it out, and that concept helped to design it as a great place for holiday-makers. For example, lots of loos and lots of different sitting-areas. And of course a lovely pool. It was only later we realised that this a lovely part of France with lots to do for all ages.
What makes this farmhouse unique
It is unusual in these parts to have a large balcony on the first floor. This gives us a welcome breeze in summer, shade and sun, lovely views over vineyards, olive groves and the Cevennes, a place for a sunset drink and later stargazing in an unpolluted sky. Guests have commented on the safety of the robustly fenced pool and the enclosed garden, allowing parents with small children to relax. Other guests have enjoyed the layout with large salons and two kitchens which allows two families or three generations to congregate easily but also have their own space. The village 'place' immediately outside allows a game of petanque (supplied) and extra parking (2 spaces within). Our friendly and efficient gardien Passos often gets a grateful mention.
