Domaine de Sol is an impressive contemporary-styled abode within the most beautiful natural setting, surrounded by Côtes-du-Rhône vines, olive trees, lavender and woodland so typical of this region. With its idyllic swimming pool and stunning interiors, Domaine De Sol makes a fine holiday home as well as being a picture-perfect wedding and events venue in southern France.

Admire the panoramic vineyard and forest views from the elevated setting of this unique farmhouse within easy reach of Avignon, Uzès and Nimes. The modern interiors of Domaine de Sol are just as inspiring as its gorgeous surroundings with chic living spaces, a state-of-the-art kitchen and high-end features including a cinema lounge, billiard room, sauna and outdoor heated swimming pool.

The air-conditioned Mas sleeps up to 14 guests across its seven bedrooms, each one featuring a king-size double and en suite bathroom. The master double exudes particular flair with a jacuzzi bath and sliding windows opening out to the poolside terrace.  

Outside, the stand-alone pool bar is an atmospheric spot to gather for aperitifs overlooking the magnificent landscapes whilst there is ample space for al-fresco lounging and dining across the terraces and grounds. Other fantastic facilities include the tennis court, pétanque and ping-pong alongside the villa’s billiards table and quirky pinball machine.

Furthermore, if you are considering Domaine de Sol as a wedding venue, the incredible L’Orangerie can be hired as a spectacular air-conditioned reception space and there are so many idyllic spots across the estate for your romantic ceremony and celebrations. You could even arrange for luxury tipis to be set up for some of your guests within the grounds!

Here in the Gard you are within easy reach of charming villages, bustling markets, Côtes-du-Rhône wineries alongside some of southern France’s wonderful towns and cities. Potter around the market beneath the century-old plane trees at Place aux Herbes in Uzès, admire the fantastically preserved Roman sites of Nimes and discover the historic beauty of Avignon.

Kayak beneath Le Pont du Gard, just 20 minutes away, visit the vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and enjoy the Sunday morning brocante in Villeneuve-lès-Avignon. There is so much to experience in this enchanting part of southern France.

In the Gard department, 30km north-west of Avignon and not far from the Vaucluse border, Domaine de Sol is surrounded by vineyards, set back off the main road leading south to Le Pont du Gard, one of France’s UNESCO World Heritage sites.

In the other direction, the road leads north to Bagnols-sur-Cèze (6.5km), a town in the Ceze valley with an attractive central square, pleasant cafes, a 15th century clocktower and a bustling market on a Wednesday morning. As well as useful amenities in its suburbs, there is a choice of good-sized supermarkets for stocking up.   

Even closer is a small Gard village, just under 4km by car, with a tabac/épicerie and bakery as well as the wine-making village of Laudun-l'Ardoise (4.5km) with pretty old houses, a 14th century church and atmospheric weekly market alongside some shops and restaurants. Keen walkers should follow the trail to the fascinating Roman remains at Camp de César just north of the village. The 19th century Aqueduc de Balouviere is also worthy of a detour, as is Château de Lascours (6.5km).

The vineyards are of course a great highlight of your stay in this region, not only the AOC Côtes-du-Rhône wines of Laudun-l'Ardoise but also those of the Rhône valley near Châteauneuf-du-Pape (25km), less than half an hour away.

Le Pont Du Gard (23km) is a must-visit during your time in the Gard – take a picnic and soak up the heritage of this incredible symbol of Roman engineering or paddle past by canoe or kayak. The roman amphitheatre in historic Nîmes (46km) is equally as impressive, as is the beautifully preserved Maison Carrée and Temple of Diana in the Jardins de la Fontaine.

Antique lovers will appreciate the ancient town of Villeneuve-lès-Avignon (30km), home to one of southern France’s most famous flea markets on a Saturday morning. Cross the bridge to historic Avignon (30km), perhaps stopping off at the river island île de la Barthelasse, best explored by bike, where you can admire gorgeous views across the river towards Avignon’s UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Region

Languedoc-Roussillon is one of those areas of France where you can feel like you’re totally cut off from the rest of the country. Commercial tourism has been very slow to capitalise on the region, meaning you can still enjoy a slice of authentic French rural life at its finest. A mixture of landscapes also makes it a great place to visit, with a good stretch of coastline offering a totally different experience to more bucolic interiors. Whatever you’re looking for, our range of villas and chateaux in Languedoc means you can get exactly the kind of holiday you want with accommodation that’s perfectly tailored to you, your friends and your family.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Families will love the array of activities at Domaine de Sol and in the surrounding region. Find table tennis, pétanque and a tennis court as well as the heated swimming pool and beautiful vast grounds.

Keen cyclists can hire bikes to explore local country lanes or enjoy idyllic walks and hikes through the landscapes of the Gard. Around a 20-minute drive away is the incredible Le Pont du Gard, a UNESCO World Heritage site and a lovely spot for riverside picnics and paddling as well as kayaking and canoeing.

The historic town of Uzès should enchant every age or you may prefer for the kids to let off steam at the playground in the town’s Parc du Duché followed by an adventurous walk in the Eure Valley just below. There is also the option of the Haribo Candy Museum for a rainy day out!

Discover tree-top trails at Air de Nature (18km) or venture as far as Anduze, just over an hour away, to enjoy a ride on the steam train where you can gaze at the landscapes of the Cévennes as it whisks you to Saint-Jean-du-Gard and back.

Event information

Set amongst the vines, olive trees and woodland, this beautiful natural setting juxtaposes perfectly with the contemporary ambience of Domaine de Sol and its stunning reception space, L’Orangerie, which has been architecturally designed for truly impressive events and weddings in southern France.

Making the most of the wonderful grounds, olive trees, vines, lavender and woodland, the family-run venue can help tailor-make an exceptional day at any time of year. Whether an initimate event or a large wedding for up to 250 people. Warmth, attention and kindness characterises the unique venue and its owners.

There are so many enchanting spots to choose from across the vast estate. Host your summer ceremony in the shade of the woodland followed by a wedding breakfast with loved ones in a nomad-style tent romantically lit by fairy lights. You may prefer to say your vowels amongst the Côtes du Rhône vines before feasting and dancing the night away in the air-conditioned L’Orangerie. There are lovely options throughout the year.

What’s more, for those guests not lucky enough to be staying in the gorgeous Domaine de Sol, luxury tipis can be set up across the grounds for a special experience.

Indoor Capacity - 250

Outdoor Capacity – 180 (for dinner) or 60 (max guests on dance floor)

Wedding Ceremony and Reception
L’Orangerie  is a beautiful reception room for a wedding or event with space for up to 250 people seated (it also works for smaller celebrations). The large space can be used flexibly and it can be divided into two parts using a curtain. There is also a large wooden terrace outside. The room is equipped with sound and light technology and features air-conditioning and heating. The reception space is 400m2 whilst the other areas (toilets, cloakroom, catering) are 100m2. Cocktail furniture is provided.

A nomad-style tent (300m2) can also be set up within the estate in an elevated position near the vines, olive trees and woodland, lit romantically by fairy lights. This would work well for receptions as well as cocktails or welcome meals.

An intimate ceremony or an enchanting wedding feast can also be hosted within the woodland or at the authentic mazet, also a wonderful spot for photographs.

Other picture-perfect spots for a ceremony and/or wedding feast include between the olive trees, by the century-old olive tree at the back of the farmhouse, amongst the vines, at the end of the swimming pool or on the lawn facing L’Orangerie.

Owner Profile

When did you become the owner?
The owner and manager of the Domain, designed this spot to bring family and friends together. 

It was a crush for him. A house, relaying its foundations, being able to bring all his loved ones together.

These were the thoughts guiding the founder and manager of the Mas. Just one visit in 2022, and it was like a revelation: an old agricultural complex in ruins. He saw it is a sign of destiny. The small country house was very soon transformed…

Along with the manager of L’Orangerie, a marvellous reception room, they devise new furnishings, set-ups and discoveries each year, with unparalleled creativity and precision.

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
Yes...but it’s a secret!

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
Domaine de Sol remains an extraordinary venue, thanks to its history and its comfort. With its authentic luxury on a human scale, it stands apart for the bespoke service offered to our guests.

Need to sit down to a prepared dinner? With some nice bottles of wine? Tennis classes for children and adults? A manicure? A good massage upon arrival after your journey?

Want to show up in a helicopter? A tasting of local wines and cheeses? A food truck night? A horse ride? A private tour through the grapevines?

We will do everything in our power to ensure your stay in Provence is an unforgettable break.
