We'll let you in on a little secret...this property is one of a kind.

La Maison du Sud has been refurbished in such a unique, simple and yet stylish way, keeping the authenticity of the house by leaving exposed bricks and beams and then adding antique furniture and modern furnishings to create a wonderful home where guests can relax and simply wind down.

This is a real village house offering the real South of France village experience. With the house sitting right on one of the village squares, you will be neighbours with the elderly locals who have remained in the village, whilst for shops, restaurants and sitting in cafès, the charming town of Uzès is only a 12-15 minute drive away.

The Village is surrounded by orchards, rolling Hills, country roads and ponds which is typical of the South of France and the area offers plenty to do like walking, golf, cycling, exploring historical towns and wondering through markets as well as trying some of the region's excellent wines and restaurants

La Maison du Sud is a unique and ideal base for a for a relaxing getaway with friends or family.

    Fantastic service, highly recommend them! Very easy process.

  • Great Villa in Central Location

    Posted by Ralph N on 20/06/2017

    We had a very enjoyable stay in this villa. It is a very interesting old stone villa with all of the modern conveniences. We were able to drive from the villa to many tourist attractions in the area. We were sad to leave after two weeks but will return one day.

  • Just beautiful!

    Posted by Martin F on 29/08/2016

    a fantastic place with amazing interiors - we would go anytime again. The only disturbance was the waterpump which was espcially during the night too loud and disturbing our sleep.

  • Magical place

    Posted by Paris T on 05/08/2016

    My husband and I love to travel, and we some times crave a different kind of luxury than a 5-start hotel. This year we decided to visit La Capelle et Masmolene

    Have you ever watched a movie and thought to yourself “could this place be real”? If you ever wondered about a romance of a small village in the heart of France where everyone knows one another and life slows down in a storybook setting, La Maison du Sud is where you should go.

    I can still feel the breeze in the small terrace off the kitchen, French music playing in the background as I am cutting the fresh baguette delivered by the local bakery every morning. Yes, the bakery leaves the bread in a bag behind your door.

    I still can’t believe the beauty in this house at every corner. From the antique island in the kitchen, the copper pots hanging on the wall, the bench under it with the Provencal basket sitting on top , to the unique master suite, it screamed romance, elegance, and history.

    I thought to myself writing a simple review wouldn’t do justice to this magical house, the village and its surroundings, so I need to tell you about the feel of this place.

    Yes it is clean, yes it is comfortable, yes it has WIFI and all the conveniences we all need and are uses to, but it has something much more, it has a heart. When you walk through the house you feel the love and attention that gives the house its soul. Every room tells a story, every time I would go back to reality the house would pull me back to a simpler and more beautiful time. This time I wasn’t watching the movie, I was in it.

    The master suite took my breath away every time I walked in: the headboard, the open shower in the middle of the room, the sink carved out of a peace of rock, the curtains flowing with the breeze, every piece of furniture so unexpected and yet it fit the purpose perfectly. All the modern conveniences are there but they are so smartly hidden as to not disturb the peace.

    Each room is designed uniquely and differently than the next and yet there is harmony you can touch. The small pool on a hot day is perfect. The white hydrangeas of the provincial garden smile at you every morning. From the windows in the master bedroom you see the rooftops of the village that blends in with the vineyard in the background. The view on the left pulls you to pages of a storybook; church bells, the small square of the village and the beautiful castle backdrop let you sink deep in your own little fairytale.

    Every item and every part of the house pays homage to the love the owner has felt for her house. You just want to be a part of it and buy into the love.
    Let’s not forget your kind and smiley neighbors, every late afternoon or as soon as it cools down ladies of the village come together in front of one of their beautiful stone houses to celebrate another day gone by; I giggled inside every time.

    Do I think you should stay at La Maison du Sud? If you want an authentic experience with a dust of magic, ABSOLUTELY YES!
