A FAMILY HOUSE
Nestled in the hollow of a discreet hamlet, Mas Elba is a centuries-old building nestled in the heart of nature. This family home, inspired by our childhood memories, will offer you a range of simple pleasures, from local cuisine to orchard cultivation, adding to this a hint of idleness, a few swims in the river, lovely hikes and even a little ride on horseback or in a canoe. Here time passes peacefully without any lack of activities.
The forest and its many paths surround the hamlet. Here the wildlife has all the rights and we are its guests for the time of a walk. Animals, mushrooms, thyme of scrubland, medicinal herbs, strawberry trees, juniper trees, so many possibilities to rediscover Nature and what it offers us according to the seasons... You will see, time has stopped!
ARTY, MODULAR, "JUST LIKE AT HOME"
Divided into two dwellings, you have the Petit Mas with 2 double rooms, a large dormitory with 6 beds. Fitted out on the ground, you can also take advantage of a trapper tent with its solar shower and dry toilets.
All spaces can be rented alone or jointly, for a maximum capacity of 14 people: Ideal for families and groups of friends who wish to go on vacation together while keeping their independence!
To make your stay more pleasant, hammocks, sunbeds, deckchairs, swings and a petanque court are also available.
As an option, let yourself be tempted by our table nature from breakfast to dinner, all our meals are organic, local, often from our permaculture vegetable garden or our forest harvest ...
You will see, you will be pampered!
HORIZON FOR INSPIRATION
We imagined this place as a disconnected space where nature is the main source of inspiration. It is the ideal place to meet and write, paint or sculpt. The house has been thought to offer work spaces to artists who would like to isolate themselves for a few days or to groups looking for a quiet place to gather around a project.
RESOLUTELY TURNED TOWARDS NATURE
Facing the south of a lush valley, the Mas dominates a beautifully landscaped terrain with terraces, all covered with fruit trees under which you can stroll. Olive trees, veneers, pomegranates, hackberry trees, lime trees, oaks and fig trees, you will be spoilt for choice from a vast collection of Mediterranean species.
As for the garden, it is based solely on ancient techniques which are for us elementary: dry stone, rainwater collection, compost, dry toilets to name but a few.
AN ECO RESPONSIBLE APPROACH
From recovery to recycling, from local to organic, all our choices of materials and the merchants we recommend favour the most environmentally friendly approaches, as well as short circuits. We are definitely committed and attentive to what we use and what we consume. Kitchen committed to anti-waste food, henhouse, permaculture vegetable garden, home cleaning products, compost and a special attention to our consumption of water and energy... Here, we respect Nature and we protect it to leave as few traces as possible of our passages and those of our guests...
